I have been making arrangements to get this next raffle going and I am SO excited! You guys have to check out some of these great shops who have donated items... {Lewas Designs} {My Tree House Treasures} {Elly Nelly} {Mia et Gigi} {Lil B Designs} {Lovenit} {MEG Baby Boutique} I will tell you now that if you're a recovering vinyl-rexic, this may be too much temptation for you to handle! I am still trying to set a date so keep checking in!

This morning I finished Callie's book of Love Notes finally! It is headed down the mountain and on it's way to her as we speak! I wish now I had done a bigger book. I had to really squeeze things in there! Thank you to all who sent well wishes and love her way. It really is a treasure!

Today is a windy day to say the least! I can really hear it howling now as my boys slumber. It makes me want to hide out in my house all day. So far I have, but I am thinking that a trip "Into Town" as we hokies say it, is necessary! The Hubby hasn't been so impressed with the meal choices lately as I have not stocked up on ground beef lately. A meal is not a meal to him unless some obscure cow had to die for it. So it is off to the store we shall merrily go. Hopefully sooner than later. I think that there are eighty year olds who would be more lively than The Hubby and I after 10 pm. We're pretty much worthless at that point! But perhaps we can find a sitter for our men and sneak off to the theatre and enjoy a nice dinner while we're in Show Low. It has been ages since we have actually been on a date, just the two of us. I have found myself craving that over the past few weeks. I had better get myself looking loverly just in case! What will The Hubby think when he sees me all done up? He will probably ask me what important event I have going on tonight. I will tell him..."YOU!"

That book sure did turn out cute! She's gonna love it! A little windy? LOL...that would be an understatement! I swear we slept through a small hurricane this morning! Good luck on the date night. Ronnie and I could use one of those too!

Ashley Marie, Callie is SO blessed to have a sister like you. You are one of the most amazing people I know. If you need any help with coordinating all these things, I will help you whatever way I can! I still haven't figured the Arizona thing out yet but when I do, I will call you first! Love you lots!
