Feeds Available Now! And a little Jen Lancaster worship...

I am a new blogger and still trying to figure everything out. I finally got my site feed working (I think...) so please add me to your list.

The two-year-old starts her pre-school program this week which will give me two mornings to myself. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things and share some finished products with you!

My mom has requested a quilt donation to a Breast Cancer Fundraiser Auction. I have a charm pack lap quilt that is already basted so I have decided to try and quilt it quickly so I can donate it to her auction. My mother herself is a breast cancer survivor so this is obviously personally worthwhile for me. Stay tuned for pictures of that this coming week.

On a side note, please check out Jen Lancaster's books if you are looking for a fabulous read and some pants-wetting laughter. I started out of order with her third book "Such A Pretty Fat" and laughed so loud and so often that I started to think that maybe I had a problem. Could this book really be THAT funny or am I having a breakdown? I had to read many passages outloud to Andrew so that I could have someone to share their fabulousness with. She is so adept at speaking the truth about life's challenges. I then went back to her first "Bitter is the New Black" which is timely for us since we're unemployed right now. This book is about going from the dotcom boom where our generation thought we were wealthy successful GODS to the shock of 9/11 when reality started tumbling down. Fabulous insight into a shared reality and growth experience of our generation.

I am currently reading the second "Bright Lights, Big Ass" which is worth the purchase price even if you only read the bit about trying to keep 2 dogs, 4 cats and her crazy self quiet during Fletch's conference call. I have lived that scenario many times myself and can't help but read that part out loud to anyone who will listen. PLEASE go buy these books and give yourself the gift of side-splitting laughter.

Have a great Sunday and tune in later this week for updates!
