So, why the name "All Sam's Idea"? Well, there is, of course, a story behind it. I am the one in the family who is sometime (ok, maybe always) blamed. Not in a bad way, of course, but here are a few examples of conversations that could possibly take place and my reaction to them:
Friend #1: Hey, what do you think about me going to college to be a pastry chef?
Me: Do it! That would be awesome! I love pastries!
Friend #2: Hey, don't you think skydiving would be fun?
Me: Um, YES! Let's do it! What are you doing Saturday?
Friend #3: I'm thinking of quitting my job and opening a spa for dogs....
Me: Omgosh, that would be perfect! It's like it's your calling!
I think you get the idea.... Well, the specific conversation this blog name is based on took place in an email with my In-Laws, where I sent them a link from a woman who was selling off her scrapbooking store. They own an Office Supply store in Vermont and I thought that scrapbooking would be a lovely addition to their store! The email explained that Jason wouldn't buy it for me, so they should. Well, that weekend they went, with a trailor, to pick up the remaining stock of paper, stickers, and other goodies. And now, I am blamed for the start of the scrapbooking section of the store. It was indeed "my idea."
Author's Note: The email was actually a joke since they obviously weren't going to do it... or, that's what I thought. I didn't know they would actually take me seriously, since no one really does. Haha. Now I get some amazing supplies for my stash though! I'm not going to complain about that for a second. :-)
