It's live...

For all my Pioneer Woman fans....her new site is live. The old cooking site doesn't access it through the new site here.

OOhhhh, I can't wait!

You all know what a fan I am of The Pioneer Woman Cooks website. She has another website ready to go live pretty soon and I can't wait to see it. Check out the "scenery" she has in the meantime. Very nice Ree....very nice. Thanks.

EDITED....if you missed the scenery yesterday, it's too late.....ya missed it. Too bad.

She won't forget this Easter....

I hope everyone had a nice Easter! We left my in-law's house and the kids wanted candy. We wouldn't be eating at my parents' house for another couple hours so, I told them they could have one piece. Here's how the rest of this transpired...

Makenna (who not long ago turned 5): Mommy, there's something stuck in my tooth.
Me: Go upstairs and brush them. You probably have candy stuck in them.

A few minutes later...
Makenna (crying): Mommy, my tooth hurts.
Me: Let me see...(thinking)...Holy crud. Her front tooth is going to fall out. It wasn't even loose!

We wiggle it for an hour or so and it's just hanging. We go to my mom's and she sticks her finger in and pulls it out. Unbelievable. I have been a teacher for 16 years and I have never had a kid go straight from "oh, wow. I have a loose tooth." to "I lost my tooth." in an hour. I'm kind of glad though, because we're home on Spring Break and if that tooth stuck in there for days, we might all go crazy. :)

The tooth fairy was very generous for a first lost tooth....20 time, she won't be as rich. :) So, I'm wondering, what is the going rate for the tooth fairy at your house? Does the first lost tooth pull in more $$ than the subsequent ones?

You *must* see this!

Go check out Jan Tink's blog to see how she made this using the Carousel Notes from the Occasions Mini Collection from Stampin' Up! It is so cute and I never would have thought of it.

Pregnancy Congratulations with A Little Birdie

My niece and nephew announced this week that they are pregnant and due on September 15th! We are so excited, we can hardly contain ourselves. Kylie is eagerly anticipating, because she wants to babysit already. :)

More card details later...

Birthday Whimsy Blue and Green

When I search around blogs and through galleries, I always find myself commenting on cards that have a great color combination. This is one of those color combos I love. I made this card a couple days ago to give to my buyer's club members and also gave one to my father-in-law for his 87th birthday!

I don't have time to post all of the details now....but the presents are from the Birthday Whimsy set from Sale-a-Bration (until March 17th). You get this set, or any other in the Sale-a-Bration catalog, for free when you place an order of $50 or more. The sentiment is a Hostess Level 1 set called For a Friend. When you place an order of $150, or have a workshop with orders over $150, this set or any of the level 1's are yours as well.
