(B)ig (H)uge (G)inormous news!!!

Hello everyone! The week is halfway over! Yay! Wednesday is my day off and tonight my sister and I are taking the girls to the county fair! Can't wait to eat crappy fair food and lose lots of money on impossible to win games!! Real all american fun!  haha!

Natalie is almost back to herself. She has her check up this morning.  Hopefully she will get the okay to eat some normal foods again. She is tired of yogurt and applesauce!  It's been a roller coaster but all and all she has handled it like a trooper!  Thanks for all the well wishes!

So in my last post I mentioned I had some big news. Like really big.  I have been holding on to this little tid bit of info for months and it has been hard to not blog about. What is this news?  Did you get a hint from the post title???

No? Well how about this...

Those would be three copies of the Holiday Craft issue from Better Homes and Gardens. Oh yeah and one of my crafts is in it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I still can't believe it!

When I received the email from the editor, I was 95% sure it wasn't real. I mean this stuff doesn't happen to little ol' bloggers like me! But sure enough it was legit!  Yay for that!!

Wanna see what craft they featured? Remember these....?

When I got an advanced copy in the mail I was expecting this...and only this...

...which by the way, was exciting enough!!
But when I opened it up I saw this...

What the whaaaaaaaat!!!  Front page of a section!!!

Look there is my name...IN A MAGAZINE!!!!!

I about fell over!! BHG thinks I am a designer! haha!

I am among some really cool creations by other talented ladies.

And look...I'm even credited for my work :)

In all seriousness,  I am truly honored and thankful for this opportunity!! Thanks to all of you 10 people that still read my blog ;) I'll be available to sign autographs after the press conference. hehe.

The Queen, surgery, and a new Etsy shop.

'ello, 'ello!  Everyone enjoying watching the Olympics? I am borderline obsessed.  Okay maybe that is exaggerating. Kinda. I just love the variety of sports and the fact that it is in London makes me love it that much more. And how about the Queen? What a good sport she was...jumping out a plane and all. ;) Although during the parade of nations she seemed a bit stiff.

he he. You never cease to amuse me pinterest.

In other news, Natalie got her tonsils and adenoids out on Monday.  She did REALLY well! Slept most of day one, yesterday she was up but resting all day and even ate some noodles. Today she seems a bit more sore but still recovering well. I am just looking forward to a winter without strep!  Lily is up next for surgery, the tubes in her ears have not fallen out after 2 years so they have to remove them.  Recovery from that is much faster!

For those of you who are keeping tabs on the topics to be discussed, as mentioned in my super original post title, we are up to the last and final topic. A new Etsy shop!!  No, not mine but close.  My sister's!! She is a fantastic artist and painter.  Right now her shop is still in the beginning stages.  Not that I am an Etsy pro but I am going to help her as much as I can so you guys can also see how talented she is! So pop over to Kilora's Kreations and take a peak.  Make sure to check back often as her inventory will be increasing and different things will be tweaked. If you want, show her some love and hit that favorite button!  And if you have time, feel free to stop by my shop, I won't be mad if you buy something...just sayin' :)

I'll be back really soon to share a BIG announcement!! I'm mean BIG people! Seriously. It's huge.
