WooHoo for new wheels!!


Yes, all, we finally got a new car!! No more mini van for me! I left it on the lot and didn't look back! Steve asked me if I missed it....um, NO!!! I should post a pic, but, I will....later. You'll see why.

This is a garden journal I made for my awesome MIL, Lillian. Her and Duane love to garden (hence the "l" and "d" on the cover, Steve actually had to think about it for a minute) so I thought something like this would be perfect. Inside are 12 tabbed dividers which I stamped the months on. Each month has about 3 blank pages, so on the first page of each month, I made "pockets" for them to put receipts in that they spent for that month on the garden. The rest of the space is for them to write what was done or what needs to be done for that month. There's room for even 1-2 small photos. I really hope she likes it.

Went and visited Steve's brother and his wife and my nephew last weekend in Chicago. Ate at the Macaroni Grill...YUM! I can't remember the name of what I had but it was de-lish (you know I did that just for you, Stevie!)! Uncle Brian bought the girls princess dresses complete with tiaras to go to the Rennaissance Fair. The girls were lovin' it! First of all, getting to wear dress up clothes outside! Secondly, because everyone at the fair kept referring them as "princess", "your highness", etc. It was so cute! There were lots of neat shows, one in particular that I didn't get to finish because the girls were getting antsy. It was cool for like the first 2 hours....we stayed for 6 hours, though. Natalie and I just kept wishing we could be shopping. There was a mall taunting us as we drove past it to get to the fair. After the fair, Nat and I took off for another mall, only to get there and realize neither of us had any money. We had to track the boys down, get some money and head back to the mall....where it was closed. But, we got to eat at the Cheesecake Factory. I highly recommend the tiramisu cheesecake. Got up on Sunday and went to visit my parents in Mt. C. Only to have a fight with my sister about the flower girl dress. As my dad put it exactly, my sister can definitely spend other people's money. That's all I'm going to say. Well, that and the dress is absolutely gorgeous, but still.

Well, that's about it. Caught up in 3 small paragraphs what I've been doing for 15 days. How's that for short and sweet? Off to find a new video....

Congrats on the new car? Was the Renaissance Fair in Chicago? There is one that is every year in Kenosha WI which is on the WI/IL border, called the Bristol Rennaissance.
