books. books. books.

Okay, I know. It's been a while. But, I have a great list of excuses. One of which involved the continual Feng Shui/Clearing Clutter situation. (I keep making lists of things I WANT/SHOULD do BEFORE I turn on the computer to check/create posts)... hence, the reason for my delay.



Another excuse involves this special lady. She came to Texas to dance the Two Step---oh, and to play with Tillie (who, by the way is doing MUCH better in the "stranger anxiety" department!).


And, why post when you have FANTASTIC friends that do such a good job at it?! My darling friend, Jandee, per my request, did a post about how to find and purchase "screamin' deals" (no, she didn't use that phrase, but I thought it was appropriate). She is the MASTER at finding wonderful reads, and I thought she could tutor us all on how to build our libraries. Which, I too, fully support.

So, feel free to learn! Click HERE for the link. Thank you, JANDEE! You are the bomb diggity. Seriously.

and about our life? well, I just downloaded 403 new pictures from my camera. I have to play catch up again... sometime... in the... near... future...

just think, when it happens, you'll be SUPER surprised!!! exciting, i know! here's a sneak peak!

see you on that one day at that time we decided on...

p.s. for all you google reader people, i did a new header.

oh my! beautiful shots. I love the classic brick backdrop! But I do have one request- I like the old header better. The color was lovely and I loved how the trees connected the words-not that this new one isn't awesome, I just loved the old. I guess the new are silver the old are gold, right?

So I just saw your post was called shout out. I called mine today shout out x 3. I didn't intentionally steal that from you. True story. As for my trip...Im just going to Austin today till Friday night for a conference for work. We will be staying in a hotel for a couple nights. I think it will be fun! I hope you are having fun with your mom! Oh, and I am glad miss Matilda is doing better with strangers...I will have to test it out sometime!

Good suggestion about the quilt. Unfortunately I have no idea where to even start making one. So I guess I won't REALLY do it. Oh well. I guess when I am in heaven and my memory is perfect, then I can think of all the goodness. It's bye-bye for now.

it's about time!! not that i am being bugged, i just rely on the updates. goodness gracious your books look spectacular!! i can't wait to see them in real life.

i completely agree with becca on the header. i don't so much love the thicker lines. but, it's your blog and i guess i don't remember you asking for opinions . . .

TILLIE!!! i think i am going to make a count-down chain until you bring her!!!!

love, me

a few thoughts from the pettijohns...
one: tillie mae has got to be the cutest thing in the entire whole world. i really mean that.
two: the picture of you, your mom and the wee one had better be somewhere in a frame in your house.
and finally: please tell tillie to stop growing up so fast!
