Home from the hospital, Breaking Dawn, a giveaway and a DT call!! :):):)

Hi all :)

I wanted to drop in real quick to give an update on Brookie :)  Her surgery was later today than normal and since we expressed a concern to the anesthesiologist about waking her up too fast the last few times and she ended up thrashing in pain... she let her sleep a little more this time and gave her more medicine for pain... we didn't get home today till about 1:30...Brookie is telling us she is in pain (which is expected) and will probably be swollen for the next couple of days, we will be keeping her home until the swelling has gone down :):):)
Her Nana and Papa bought her a Pocahontas doll from the Disney store (which is ironic, as Pocahontas was the movie playing on TV when we got home from the hospital) :):):)
Thank you all for the well wishes and prayers... it is greatly appreciated :)

Also... yesterday... I went to the "Twilight- Breaking Dawn" marathon :):):):):) My friend and I weren't planning on getting there until about 2... but at 10'ish we found out people were ALL READY LINING up for the marathon movie event... we got there about 11AM... and I didn't get home till about 3AM ... crazy crazy crazy... lol :):):):):) But the movie was AMAZING!!! And if any of my friends have NOT seen it yet, and our planning too ---- MAKE SURE you STAY until the credits start rolling!! They give us a SURPRISE in there :):):):):):):):):)

(me and my friend Jenny!) :):):)


Crate Paper is hosting a giveaway to Rahel Menig's "Christmas Book" class from Studio Blue Moon!! :):):):):) Check it out HERE! :) (And make sure you check in here next week... I will giving away one of Rahel's classes too! :):):):):)

And and and and Nikki Sivils announced a Design Team call today for US & Canada applicants :):):):) YAYYYYYY!!! If you ever thought of working for a design team --- I encourage you to apply for Nikki's team --- she is AMAZING to work for! :):):):):):) See all the DT requirements here :):):)

Anyhoo... I am wayyyyyy behind on emails and blog surfing... so I am off to catch up now :):):):)

Thanks again for the love and support... you are all the BESTEST! :):):):):):):)

  10. I'm so glad that your daugthers surgery went well. I've tried to translate port wine stains, but I can't find a correct translation. I do hope she's fine and that she isn't in too much pain.
    I'm still amazed that you can watch movies for so many hours - I'm sure I would fall asleep. :)
