So, pretty much the best thing happened to me last week. It's so big, I'm still in shock over it! You may have heard of a little ol' blog called "The Sewing Rabbit" (ha, like you haven't heard of it!).
Well, she hosted a giveaway--and the big item was a trip to Sewing Summit in Salt Lake City, UT. Of course I entered...never imagining that I could, or would win.
Well, somehow the stars aligned, and.....I am the lucky winner!! Look, my name is right there!! When the email came on Wednesday morning, I think my heart stopped. I read it, then re-read it, then re-read it again. And I then I read it again. And then I finally understood what it was saying. And then I flipped out!! I immediately tried to call my husband...who was in California last week for business...and is 2 hours behind, so it was 7am there. He didn't answer. So I called again. And again. And still no answer! Gah!! Then I just started shrieking--OMG, I Won! I won! I WON!! At that point my four year old and one year old were looking at me like I had grown two heads. haha!
Finally, my husband called back, and in a rush I filled him in--he's excited for me, and maybe a bit terrified about taking on 4 out of 5 kids for four days straight--but I know he'll do great! (Baby Cecelia will be flying out with me--she's still nursing 8 billion times a day, and I doubt she'll be weaned in a month!)
So that's my big news!! Yay right?!! I'm "sew" excited to be going--it's really going to be like a dream. I have my flight info, hotel info, and class info--so I'm ready to go! Now I just need to sew up some fun stuff to take along. And figure how what to bring along with me! Thank goodness I still have a month or so!
As if that weren't enough--my husband gave me ANOTHER surprise when he got back from California...he brought me home a new mixer.
Not just any mixer either! A brand new Kitchenaid in Aqua Sky. I'm in love. LOVE! It's so pretty! And it was just in time too--we had a double birthday party this weekend, so she got put right to work, side by side by her sister...
Yep, I'm spoiled, and I know it. The white mixer was a wedding present from my Dad..almost 9 years ago. It still works great, but I have been lusting after a colored mixer for a few years now. So, now to decide what to do with the white one--I definitely can't part with it--too sentimental..but hubby was talking about taking it in to have it powder coated...just have to pick a color! :)
We celebrated my two youngest birthday's this weekend, so hopefully I'll get some party pics up on the blog soon! I can't believe my baby girl will be one in a few days--it was bittersweet celebrating her birthday yesterday!
