Texas, Missouri, Utah, H1N1 and Halloween....

The only thing that's in common with the title here is ME!! It has been one busy month, I've been all over the Untied States!! Florida, Texas, Utah, Missouri, and I soon will be leaving for Oklahoma and Arkansas. Unfortunately while coming home from Utah I came down with H1N1... yeah!! I've been so very ill and with my asthma I have to be really careful, I started Tamiflu within hours of getting the flu so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my lungs will stay clear!! Here are some pictures from my adventures the last couple of weeks....

Kendra and I, at her brand new store in Buffalo, TX!! Photolicous is the name of her store, isn't that the cutest name for a scrapbook store!! Kendra's new store was awesome and her cropping room was huge with these huge big comfy chairs!!

I had such a great time with these ladies, and the scrapbooking world needs to keep their eye on this lady, Ronda Simpson!! Ronda can rock out a layout!!

My next stop in Texas was in New Braunfels at the Scrapbook Haus!!

The ladies here were fun and loved making my little Christmas Tag mini Album!!
This picture is of Susan, the store owner and I!! Susan was so sweet and I loved her great store!!

These pictures are of Liz, my sales rep and I! Liz was very sweet, welcoming me with Red Bulls and Dr Pepper, my staples in life!! (Although I can say that I've officially kicked my "Red Bull" habit, it's been 2 weeks since I've had one!!) Woo Hoo!!

This picture is of my 2 younger sisters and I in KC, MO!! We spent the weekend shopping, eating and well taking care of Emily's twins, Max and Mollie!! Kelly, in the front, is the baby, Emily is in the middle, and she is the middle child and then me, the shortest and oldest!! We had such a great time!!

Here we are eating at PF Chang's, Kelly is holding Max.

Max and Mollie, always matching!!

This is me carrying Mollie around the Plaza in KC!!

I have no pictures of Utah b/c I forgot my camera, crazy I know!! But Dan and I to do our press check for my Spring 2010 paper lines!! Wait until you all see them, they totally rock!! I did want to share with you some more Halloween treats for those last minute ideas!! My design team really rocked out some great things!!
Created by Mimi Leinbach: (I wish I was getting this little treat bag!)

Created by Julie Tucker-Wolek: (Isn't this a great treat basket, wish I would've thought of it!)

I love this little haunted house created by Ria Mojica, she used my Victoria's Street chipboard houses and mixed several of my paper lines together to create this!!

Created by Jodi Wilton: (These little tags are adorable!)

Created by Deana Boston: (Love that flag!)

Created by Julie Tucker-Wolek: (This is just sweet!)

Created by Nathalie Leonelli: (I love making cards and these 3 rock!)

This was created by Claude Campeau, and her kids are anything but scary!! I love this layout!!

I usually pass out cupcakes during the day to family and friends in "costume", then do a second costume change for the evening, but with being so sick this year and not wanting to get anyone sick I'll be staying home!!:( Maybe I'll just dress up the dogs and wear my flannel pj's and just a "slumber party girl"!! I hope everyone has a happy and safe Halloween!! -Nikki

Hope you feel better soon, Nikki! My daughter just had H1N1 last week. We only had to use her albuterol 1 day... thankfully! Hope all goes well with the Tamiflu!

Cute photos & cute projects everyone!

(PS. I'm the oldest of 3 girls, too. Nothing better than sisters! :-)

Wow, we sure had a great time! Photolicious is handing out Amy's, Sweet & Sassy cookies in your make and take bags today! Jodi made 36 of them! I'll have to take pics before their all gone!

Stay in bed and get rested (best defense for your lungs), it's not fair Dan only gets you when your sick! Atleast, you'll be close to home in November. Get well soon!

Nikki Sivils said...

Thanks for the "get wells"!! I've only had to use my albuterol for one day too, I think that Tamiful really helped take the edge off the symptoms!

Lydia Siegel said...

O' Nikki, Im so sorry to hear you are sick. We went through the same thing with our son. Getting sick and having asthma is always scary. Get well soon.

Ronda Simpson said...

Aw, thanks Nikki!! So glad to have met you! :)
I sure hope you are feeling better!! That flu stuff stinks!
