The Faster I Go, The More Behind I Am!

 So tonight I am late getting home from work...well, a little later then usual.  I put in a 10 hour day and could have stayed and worked longer!  We had 40 boxes of new clothes and 6 pallets of home decor that we have been pricing and displaying for our big Girl's Night Out tomorrow at the store.  But I was starting to run on empty and I knew Hubby had dinner waiting for me. So I blew through the door and dropped my purse and sweater on the dining room table.  I decided to relax with my feet up and sip on a Mike's Lemonade.

 Hubby made me a delicious chicken spaghetti for dinner. 
Decided I better update my blog and was shocked to see that it had been so long since my last post.  And that means that it's also been way to long since I have had a chance to catch up with all my blogger friend's blogs.  So as soon as I finish up with my post I will be blog hopping!
Wanted to show you my Valentine tree.  

 I just love these little decorations.   I should know the name of the artist that designs them, but my brain is numb right now and I can't think of it.  Sorry!
 Art Group met on Tuesday morning and I was ill-prepared.  Since I had worked all day on Monday I was too tired to get organized and find something to paint.  So I just kind of doodled this one out.  Nothing special but hey, at least I painted something!
The EXCITING news is that I won another GIVE AWAY!!!
I have long been a fan of Sandy's Creations blogspot.  She has a wonderful blog and makes awesome creations.  I was THRILLED when I found out that I won one of her giveaways.
Look how great the packages were wrapped.  I hated to open them and ruin the creative packaging!!
 The bag of Canadian chocolates were an immediate hit.
Check out the pink feather....she even stamped it.  So clever.
 Here's what was inside......a canvas bag, embellished journal and a wonderful winged-heart pillow.
 You really should double click on this close-up of her pillow and check out all the detailed work she did.
It is so cute.  I have it hanging in my studio and it will be a constant reminder of my sweet and talented blogger friend, Sandy.
Now I have just about finished my lemonade and I'm itching to check out all my favorite blogs before I get to sleepy to continue (I was up at 5:30 exercising with Rosie).  
Oh, but before I forget I wanted to give you an update on my daughter, Bre and the MS.  She actually got to spend 4 days down here last week.  It was great to see her.  We did our usual shopping, eating out, 
hair cuts, etc.  She looks great but is experiencing some more MS symptoms.  She will begin the daily injections as soon as the medicine arrives and the nurse can make arrangements to come to her house and train her on how to give herself the shots.  UGH!!!  NOT FUN.  She is an amazing young woman.  She keeps a smile on her face and a positive attitude.  We are so proud of her strength and determination.  We certainly are appreciative of all your thoughts and prayers.  They DO make a difference.  Thank you so much.
OK....time to blog hop!
XOXO Nancy
