I just want to take a moment to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my dear friend -- Sharon -- in Katy, Texas. Last Thursday was her birthday and even though I thought about calling her several times that day, I never did get a chance. My life seriously needs to SLOW DOWN.
Ha! Like that's ever going to happen...

My BEST FRIEND (since the 4th grade!!!) -- Shannon -- is one of the founders & staff-writers for the awesome blog: NWA MotherLode. I have been perusing their site since they first went up and I have to say, it keeps getting better & better! Be sure to check out Shannon's regular column: "Life With Ladybug." Even if you don't live in NWA (North-West Arkansas), there are some great features & contests!

I am SO SAD that some of our very dear friends -- Pat & Lorri Earles -- are moving to the Oregon/Washington State area! Sheesh, could they get any further away???
We are going to miss them SOOOOOOOO much.
Lorri is one of my sweetest friends & I have enjoyed serving with her at the Baton Rouge Dream Center over the past 2 years. Her kids & mine also share special bonds & this move is not going to set well with any of us, but we wish them the very best.

Plus, maybe now -- FINALLY -- I will have an excuse to travel to that part of the country (the only region, except Alaska, I haven't been).

Lastly, (but not least) I want to give a shout out to my SISTER -- Lameis -- who has (finally) started reading my blog!! I love you, little sis. =)

Thanks for the kind words about Motherlode! We're having a great time connecting to all the mamas and giving away "luxuries" in this economy.
Love you, Summer! Your blog has been such a blessing to me. (And you've been a blessing to me since, what, 1979?! WOW!)
