Friday's Favorite Five...

Here are my 5 favorite things from this week -



1. Finally having Karen go to her OB appointment; finding out everything's fine so far (well, except for the PP); being able to brag about it! And just the thought that I'm going to be a grandmother is almost overwhelming!


2. Losing 2 1/2 more pounds (that's 13 total, ladies & gents!).


3. Receiving yarn yumminess in the mail. This is so soft (wool, angora & alpaca blend) and the color is much more beautiful than in the photo. It's called Tandori Spice.

4. Finding stacks of books tucked away in a chest I forgot I had! I was cleaning and opened up a little wooden chest in the livingroom. It was FULL of books! So a lot of them went in the ever-growing TBR pile; some (like the Winnie the Pooh books) are being put away for future story-times); and the rest went to my offer list in either Paperback Swap or BookMooch.

So...did you see anything from CHA that you can't live without? I honestly didn't look through too many of the paper lines. I figure I'm in 3 awesome kits clubs, and I always get a great mix of papers from them. However, I am pretty excited about all the new Slice cartridges coming out. And I have one of these in my shopping cart at Memory Making Crafts.




Although it's not new, I ordered a Scor-Pal finally! They were a really decent price, and the shipping was free so...what the heck!

Hey! Have a great week-end, and
