The Good the Bad and the Ugly

First, the good. I was hand picked by Catherine as one of the new designers for her store, Your Memories By Design. I am thrilled to be designing for her and thrilled that she gave me this compliment by choosing me to be on her team. Cat is so talented, that she has begun to focus on creating these wonderful handmade products in her etsy store. I can't wait to get my hands on some of her products!

The bad: I really thought I was going to win the "I want a new" contest at a peek into yesterday, but I didnt. It's kinda funny at this point. I just dont seem to be able to win a contest over there. I really thought that my "I want a new body" page was going to be the winner, but oh well. I still love it, and I will still keep entering becasue their contests are so much fun.

Onto more personal stuff:

This weekend was busy, but fun. Renee came over on Friday and we had some wine and cheese and watched the kids play. Just like old times only less relaxing and no Gilmore Girls. I had really missed her though so I really needed it.
Then on saturday I took Ellie over to my mom's and we went to Frank and Tracie's for a party. We stayed sooooo late! And I drank just a tad bit too much, but it was a much needed adult night out.

The bad and the ugly: One of Seth's best friends, Kyle's wife slipped and fell and broke her knee, and severed some arteries and almost died. Then they thought that she was going to lose her leg. Now things are looking up. She isnt completely out of the woods yet and there is no telling how much physical therapy she will need and if she will ever walk again, but she is young and strong and improving, so that is good.

I am still trying to figure out what to do today. Seth is sick so I stayed home from work to watch Eliana. Plus, I was really missing her! This is kind of a new thing for me. Maybe it is belated bonding or maybe it is because I am finally not depressed for like the first time ever. But she has stayed overnight with my parents and Seth's parents lots of times and I never felt like this. I just couldnt wait to hold her!
