My new toy

So, I got the Clip it Up last week and finally put it up and stocked it. OMGosh I still have so much stuff and I actually ran out of clips!! It looks like there are a million little clips in those bags and I thought 'No way am I gonna use them all'. Well, I did. I love having everything so handy! Just got my Archiver's 30% coupon too. Guess what I'm getting next. Yup, the top. Mmmm....addicted much? (*I have that map of the US on the wall so I can mark where all my LPSC friends live!)

I got my 7 gypsies ATC revolving holder thingie on Monday and OMG I'm DYING to play with it!!!! BUT I have a list of projects to finish first. I decided I'm gonna do a 'my favorite things' display with it. I can't wait to get started! I have another one on order, thanks to a dear friend and enabler!!
What else can I tell you?....Ethan's been so sick all week with a terrible cold. It just breaks my heart to see him all teary and boogery; poor thing. He's getting better now though cuz he's starting to test my patience like always. And Ava's a little out of sorts with a runny nose. I'm hoping it doesn't make it to a full fledged cold!
I made a KILLER chili today! One of the moms from the MOM's club here posted her mother's SECRET recipe but for the right price, I'll share ;) It was SOOOO good (and I don't usually eat chili) and the best part is: I made it in the crock pot! WOOHOO!

Marcene, I am SO PSYCHED to see the dolls!!!! OMGosh, you guys, I went to her blog and saw the ADORABLE raggedy dolls she makes. Of course, I had to get Ava one!! I told dh and he says 'tell her to make one of Ethan too so Ava can have the pair'. Aw, isn't that sweet. So I have these two CUSTOM dolls coming!!

Oh AND I went to Target today and found this Foosball table that actually has like 50 games (ok maybe less LOL) on sale! My sister told me about it last nite. I just happened to go today to get some curtain rods (thanks Mom!) and there it was - originally $120 and I paid.........drumroll please............$30! That's right folks! I'll take a pic when dh sets it up - so cool!

I'm off to finish packagin my Secret Cupid gift. Hope you like it, secret sister!

PS Mom I asked for prayers for Pastor Carl. We've got the whole LPSC family on it!
