It's never nice to gloat

But sometimes you just have to...

Today I am gloating! Remember this?

Well I got me one! Thanks to Grams! She said it was an Un-Birthday Present for always helping her with her computer stuff...I don't care what kind of a present it was...I just know I GOT ONE I GOT ONE!! And - she even bought the matching MOUSE! How cute is that? Thanks Grams!

I also entered the Dreyers Ice Cream Essay Contest recently...and guess what?
I WON! Well, me and about 1500 other Americans! But still....we get to host a block party courtesy of Dreyers and I am SO EXCITED to have had my Essay picked as a winner!
HANG ON...Not done yet
Remember this mess? If you have to click for a reminder scroll all the way to the bottom to find the mess! I am THRILLED to report that that mess is GONE, G O N E gone! We had a garage sale, I hated every minute of it, I won't do it again and neither will "he" but we had it and when we were done we loaded both cars and took everything leftover off to goodwill! YAHOO!
And Finally (I promise)
Lauren has been very busy venturing into what you might call Kid-trepreneur Business! More on this soon but we are VERY proud of her and she made $12.00 selling her handmade items in the garage sale! Soon she will even have a website with shopping cart so...Keep you posted!
OK. That's it!

I'm so happy for you. You deserve it. Grams is the best! Glad you made it through your garage sale. Standing by to see what Lauren is up to.

really cute little computer.
Hosting an ice cream block party would be the best!! Nick loves ice cream, and eats it daily!
Looking forward to Lauren's little business news.
I feel the same way about garage sales, we do one @ every 4 years, and I curse and swear off them....LOL.
