I'm Spilling the Beans...

Ok, so here it big news....I am pregnant and we are absolutely thrilled! The details: I am 9 weeks along and due on September 21, 2007. Thanks to those who have been on the lookout, I have been feeling just a wee bit tired and some nausea too. But all in all, feeling happy and getting excited! Needless to say, I haven't had much energy lately for all my usual duties...and I am already starting to worry about the incidentals such as a more suitable current car will fit two car seats, would be a tight fit I'm sure, but it will not hold for instance a double stroller and add, lets say a second diaper bag to the mix and I am looking at some cramped quarters, eeek....I am panicking too early aren't I? I know that most of you are across the states, at the risk of sounding crazy, you just never know...I am looking to sell my car. I will post more details and some photos if there is interest, so in the meantime let me know...

Don't you just love fun surprise packages and scrappy mail?? Well it has been quite a happy little mail week in the Paddack home. Today I received the most awesome swap package from Jennifer Henson, filled with an array of colorful flowers, ribbons and buttons and these never seen before super cool library style pocket thingy's...and the ribbons were absolutely perfect, none of which I already had in my stash--really love that!

I also received my first issue of Cottage Living Magazine compliments of Kimber-Leigh and a super fun RAK giveaway she was holding back in December... I am hooked and cannot wait for the next issue. Besides all the fabulous home decor ideas; which is just my style by the way, I couldn't help but wow at the most mouthwatering recipe for a Warm Artichoke and Spinach Dip... mmmm! Promise to make and share the results very soon.

Until next time...xo

Scrapjacked Layout...

I participated in the first scrapjacking, these ladies have put together this way too cool for school blog called Scrapjacked. You have probably heard of it by now, as word recently swept through scrappy blogs and mssg boards. I highly suggest if you didn't participate this time, you gotta dive in next week!! It was awesome creative fun "jacking" one of Ali's layouts. I was even able to try something new, something I otherwise would not have done on my own. ::hint-hint:: my title sideways...! Thanks for dropping in today, happy day to all!
