good night

Tonight eric and I went out for a late dinner, and got home after the kids were already in bed… as I have been writing last minute emails and gathering my things, quincy woke up and wanted a good night kiss… I carried her into my bed and layed down with her for a few minutes, hoping to get a chance to tell her I was leaving town tomorrow, and that I wouldn’t see her in the morning… she asked me where I was going, and I told her Chicago.. and half-asleep she said… “lucky you”, then drifted off to sleep… it put a little smile on my face! I am lucky! I have my suitcase packed, stuff pretty much taken care of – at least crisis level stuff. I feel like I am forgetting something!

My little sister Katie is in the hospital as the moment giving birth to her first child… a little girl… “aspen”… I love the letter “a” almost as much as I love “Q”… so I can’t wait to start scrapbooking photos of my new niece!! Katie went in this morning at 8:30am to start being induced, and as of 11pm tonight, she was just starting the ‘petocin drip’… UGH… I am feeling so bad for her! Hopefully by morning baby girl aspen will be here. I am so excited that my baby will have a cousin so close! Wish I were there!!! Good luck kates…!

Um, a little FYI…
I just got an email from the folks at bazzil, and there seems to be a little glitch with the “creative escape” registration set up on the website… it looks like we may be having to push the online registration back to APRIL 7th at 9am pacific time… I have not heard FINAL on that… but if you are planning to sign up… keep that in mind, and check the site for more info! Gotta love on-line stuff… gotta take the good with the bad I guess!

I think that my second wind from an hour ago is depleted..
Sweet dreams!

    Ok, I know you guys probably aren’t happy about the registration having problems…but that is great news for me! I am scheduled to be on a plane during registration time and was feeling a little uneasy about letting my BIL handle registering me. *Crossing fingers that it gets changed!*
    Have a great time in Chicago!

    you are one of the busiest women in the business…but if you find a minute of downtime- stop on over at Nitty.Gritty. just to see the “custom-designed heidi swapp kitchenaid mixer” I posted a picture of. I was thinking how cool your stuff would look {when, not if =)} you decide to cross over into the kitchen product line…so I made a simple rendition of what a mixer could look like. You are so inspiring- I wish I had a heidi swapp blender and toaster oven too! and of course the mini-flowered spatula and matching apron. Even June Cleaver and Mrs. Brady would be jealous of me!! Okay, enough of my product-line imaginary dreaming, I know. It’s just your stuff is addicting! Have a blast in Chicago. Tell Oprah “hi” from me. =)

    LOVE the name Aspen! Unique! My daughter is Ireland! I love Quincy as well–but too close to our last name.
