Today I have a little "stuff" to share.
First a RAK (Random Act of Kindness)...
Joy tried out for the Wags 'n Whiskers Guest spot recently and was the runner up. So we sent her a stamp of her choice. She also won one of my blog candies recently. So she created a card using both of her stamps and sent them to me....along with a Gorjous Girl stamp!! I was so excited to receive my package!! Thank you so much, Joy...that was so kind of you.
Stamp and Create update...
Wags 'n Whiskers Blog will start weekly challenge TOMORROW!! In honor of our first challenge,I have a special on Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamps. For each stamp you purchase, you will receive a set of charms of your choice for free!! Make sure to state which charms you want in the comment section at check out (US and Canada only).
A funny story...
A few weeks ago, we went to the pediatrician for Ryan's check up. The doctor pointed out that he had a heart murmur...which is the first time we have been told this (Ansley actually has a small whole in her heart called VSD). Anyway, that's not the funny part (obviously)...we have an appointment on Nov 9th to get it checked out.
Anyway, last night Ansley saw a commercial for something that mentioned "being born with a heart defect". She start talking about her heart condition. When Ryan bursts out with "I have a Heart Mermaid"!! LOL Instead of a murmur, he has a mermaid in his heart!! ;-) I just thought that was funny!
Today I went to the mall to get a pedicure and grab a few things I needed. The stores are in the process of putting out the Christmas decorations and the "Photo with Santa" spot. They had Christmas music pipped through the mall and Bath and Body Works had some sort of evergreen scent burning which spread throughout that section of the mall! Thanksgiving is still weeks away...but the malls are already looking forward to Christmas!!
This is really my favorite time of the year. Although we don't get the normal "Seasons" here in South Florida, I enjoy this time of year. Slightly cooler weather (is was 82 degrees today with overcast skies and a VERY strong breeze)!! Christmas music playing all around and the kids starting to write their letters to Santa!!
Oh, it's also my birthday in less than 2 weeks...so that's another reason to celebrate. My sister will be here for Thanksgiving. Then we are all going to Disney World together (which happens to be a HORRIBLE time to go to Disney...very long lines) but it's the only time we can go with her family.
For Christmas, we have a 2 week trip planned to visit family...South Carolina to visit Scott's brother and family...Tennessee for Christmas to visit Scott's parents (need to write a note to Santa telling him we will be at Nana's this year)...Georgia to visit my sister and mom...then Jacksonville, FL to visit our old friends and for a New Year's Eve party!! Whew...I am tired thinking about it!
Anyway, if you are looking for some Christmas gifts for your crafty friends, get a head start by shopping on-line at Stamp and Create. Gift Certificates are also available. Email me for details at LaceySoLiving@bellsouth.net
See you tomorrow for the Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge!!
