Well, not yet, at least, but in about an hour I will have a new little niece!! My sister-in-law goes in for her c-section at 5pm this evening to have her. I'm anxious to know what her name is! Last we knew, it was between Jenna and Chloe. So, good luck Natalie and Brian! Can't wait to hear from you!

I was snuggled and feelin' comfy this morning when Steve wakes up at around 5:30a yelling "BASEMENT!!! NOW!!!" I had no idea what was going on. I don't think the 5 of us have ever gotten up to the basement that fast. We got downstairs and had no idea why we were down there! LOL! I was barely functioning. After we decided we weren't in any immediate danger, we headed back upstairs and got an early start to the day. Fast forward about an hour and my Mom calls me asking if we fell out of bed this morning! WTH? How did she know? Well, evidently it was an EARTHQUAKE! A 5.4 earthquake with the epicenter being in West Salem, IL which is only a hop, skip and a jump from where Mom and Dad live! Mom said that she had drinking glasses falling over in the cabinets, some mugs fell out of another cabinet and 2 shelving units in the living room that have picture frames were all scooted towards the back. WILD! What a way to start the day! I remember hearing a rumbling (we had our bedroom window open) and that's about it, thinking it was thunder. Steve, Mara and Micah said they felt their beds moving. WOW. Happy Friday!

Tiffany and I are also doing a mini Scrapbook Workshop in honor of National Scrapbooking Day on Sat, May 3. You will make 4 12x12 layouts for $6. It will be at her house from 1p-6p and you can stop in anytime during that timeframe to complete your layouts. Due to only having 4 layouts for that, I don't know if we'll be posting sneak peeks or not. But, as always, kits WILL BE AVAILABLE and we will ship them to anywhere in the US.
Tiffany put me in charge of making new nametags for us which I completed last week. Here's the pic of mine and she has hers posted on her blog....take a peek! :-)

Wow, I'm just making all sorts of neat little changes to my blog and having so much fun doing it!! I noticed Tiffany's blog had a new background which is GORGEOUS! So, off to get me a new background as well. Thanks, Tiffany!!! Like what you see? Check out Cutest Blog on the Block and get one for yourself! It was super easy to do...trust me, if I can do it, anybody can!

Check it out! Most of them were done with the flippin' awesome BYOM kits, too.
It's getting close to me and Tiffany's ultimate Card Workshop on April 19th! I got a big box of goodies last week to start cutting and preparing for it. We have 31 people signed up so far, which is awesome! And, if you can't make it, you can always buy a kit that has everything cut for you complete with instructions. Those are $15. If you want one, just email me or tell me on here and I'll be sure to hold one for you! 20 cards for $15...you just can't beat it. (BTW, Tiffany, I think it's time for another sneak peek, don't you?!)
I had to give up a GNO with the girls at Los Bravos tonite. :-( Steve had a BNO instead! LOL! He and several of his buddies are seeing "21", that movie about blackjack....ya know, since they all have a serious gambling addiction and all! I told him it all sounded kind of gay, but he reassured me that they all sit like one seat apart. Um...ok. I don't know which sounds gay-er!! ROFLMAO! Oh, well. It seems like I'm the one always out running around with friends, so, he pretty much deserved this.
Hey, I forgot to mention that I started my diet on Monday. Shelley and I are doing the low-carb thing again. I had success with it last year when I was on it, but one week on vacay, I fell off the wagon and never got back on. Shelley's done it, too, so I was so pumped when she mentioned going back on it! I have a buddy to help me along! My mantra is that I want to be a "skinny bitch" by summer. Tina at work said I'm halfway there!! I don't think she meant that very nicely.....anyway, 2 pounds down, alot more to go!!
Speaking of losing weight....I need to start looking for a new swimsuit. I just got a new Land's End catalog today and some of those suits are super duper cute!! It says they can find a suit to flatter everyone....I'm a wee bit skeptical about them being able to match a beached whale with the perfect suit. But, we'll see.
Oh, I'm guessing the endometrial ablation worked....I'm like a defective typwriter (Quick! Name that movie!!). ;)
Well, I gotta run. I've got 130 snack baggies of Munchies to fill for Movie Day tomorrow at school. Yay.

Easter 2008 was COLD!! Well, it could've been worse. It was overcast and mid 50's. But, the girls sure did brighten things up! They clean up pretty good, don't they?! McKenna and Micah kept calling themselves the Opposite Twins...it was so cute! And, I had to include a pic of my adorable nephew, Asher with his Momma, my sister, Kasara. He's just so stinkin' cute, isn't he?!
