She is here!

Sweetie that is! We picked her up on Saturday, what a fun day that was! Like I told you before, Katie Pertiet and I had arranged to meet halfway between our respective homes, so we decided to meet in Carlisle. Of course she got there early (Kelly said that's her trademark :)) and since I had left to get there at 4PM I flew the whole way, going 80 mh. The girls were so happy to finally be able to hold her and I was so thrilled to meet Katie and her daughter. We had dinner together and spent 2 hours chatting. It was great. I felt like I had known her forever, she was so easy to talk to! She told me her site has 50000 customers, I couldn't even believe it! That is a lot of people. Anyway, we had a great time or at least I did. Here is a page I made about the meeting


and then I made a double spread about the first meeting with the kitty

I loved this template that Katie made, it's like a book and I left it as big as it came, I kinda liked it! Isn't she just the cutest?Katie Pertiet-48 Katie Pertiet-3 Katie Pertiet-4 Katie Pertiet-6 Katie Pertiet-8  Katie Pertiet-15

I didn't touch these pictures, I know they are a little overexposed, so bear with me.

Phil's line came out last Thursday, he is now bottle-less and enjoying his newfound freedom. He is feeling great and if it wasn't for the stupid valve, everything would be so great! The cardiologist wants to wait another 2 weeks before doing the Echo. I guess the hope is that the scar tissue might pull the valve in a somewhat better position?! We'll see. I just keep praying that he won't have to be subjected to the surgery!

I just joined a local CSA, what a great thing that is or so I hope at least. It's a local farmer who sells directly to people via subscriptions in a way. I pay 325 $ for the whole season, or 20 weeks and every week I get a week's supply of whatever is in season. It's all organic and local. this Friday is my first time, I can't wait. My Physical Therapist recommended it, she did it last year and loved it! the supplies were plentiful and great she said. I still have my own garden planted but I always find use for extra veggies!

Here are some more pages I did last week

These above are all at Designer Digitals

The one below is at PixelCanvas, which makes me aware of how few pages I made , I need to get busy over there!!!


All right, this was just a short update, I hope you will all keep praying for my hubby, I so appreciate it! I will really try to post more often and to get around to check all the blogs I have been ignoring this last week!

I hope you won't get tired of looking at Sweetie pages, oh yes, I forgot ,that is the name the girls decided to keep, it seemed like a good compromise and Kelly kept calling her Sweetie, so we'll stick with that name. More later!

Such a fun opportunity to meet up with Katie and I will continue to pray for your husband and am happy to hear that things seem to be going in the right direction there.

Never say Never!

Well, here I am creating my very own blog! I was always very sure I would never get into this blogging "thing", but here I am. I hope you will enjoy finding out a little about my not so interesting life!
