Friday FYI

I've got several things on my mind to talk about this morning, so I'm just going to jump right into it. I just don't see any point in dawdling! First up is the lovely Moroccan prize I won from Maison Douce! Don't you just love what she sent? I know I do. I'm crazy for it all especially the bottle. Thank you Isabel for such a generous giveaway and for picking my name! Secondly, I want to give y'all a little update on our Bella. To say she is doing well would be an understatement. The Lord is truly blessing us every day with her growth. She is close to 2 lbs., if not at it after her weigh in last night(I would hate to think I had to get on the scales every night!), and is 13" long. How great is our God! Her Neo-Doctor(I cannot remember nor pronounce nor spell his actual title!) said she was his favorite patient. Absolutely no problems! He is actually in a little awe of this fact and told Jenn that he didn't know who she had praying for Bella, but to tell them to keep it up...it was working! Little does he know, right? How amazing for a doctor to give the glory to God and not try to keep it for himself. The nurses pray over her and lift her up as well. I don't have any new photos to show because that hussy of a daughter of mine won't share. You'll just have to keep checking hers until I figure out how to photograph through Bella's glass castle. She is starting to put on little fat pads and I swear up and down, she's starting to look like her beautiful mother!
Thirdly(don't you just love to drive spellcheck crazy?), I wanted to run something by all of you who live in my area or anyone else for that matter. I'm thinking of having a barn sale here at the house sometime in May---a one day, down and dirty sale! My question is if I did, would any of y'all be interested in coming? It would mean a lot of work getting it organized...not to mention cleaning my house! Y'all know I have an aversion to any real work. In fact, I was thinking of calling it Miss Lazy S Sale because I'm too lazy to get off my S and work on this stuff! My projects could be your next bargain. I told Cat Daddy I wanted the barn, lean-to, iron pile, and flat bed trailer empty and that I was going to mark things dirt cheap and if he didn't like it, he just needed to be somewhere else when I did it! That's telling him, right? I think we could really have some fun with this...but a party of one just ain't no party.
So y'all think about it, tell me what you think, what day you think would be good and get back to me. Okay?

Great Prize! And our God is an awesome God! I'm so glad to hear of the 2 pound mark being on the horizon for Bella! Praise God!

The 2nd half of May is open for me. And I'd love to come out and load up my truck!

People, I have seen TnT and CD's barns/yards/trucks/fields/home/estate. You will WANT to commit to this. It WILL be worth your while.

Debbie, let me know when and I'll use ink on my calendar. ~Mindy

Deb, so glad to hear that Ms. Bella is growing and gaining wt. I'd love to help you if you want me too and I've available whenever! Unless, I can get into a show I'm trying to get into and if that's the case I can't make it on the 16th or 17th but any other time I'm there.

First, let me say what a SURPRISE it is that you won a contest! :) You are the contest winningest chick I know!

Bella, Bella, Bella. I'm sorry. I just love to say her beautiful name! I cannot wait til the day you can pass her around like a sack of potatoes and we all get to hold her and kiss her and smell the back of her neck. (I love to do that to babies!) I just hope Aunt Cher doesn't scare her too badly. Poor baby has had enough trauma in her life without Cher startling her! :)

Girl, you pick a weekend and I will try my best to be there. I have marked my calendar for the Mindy party...now decide on a date so I can mark my calendar for the Debbie party!

That's wonderful news to hear about Baby Bella! The Lord is good and the angels are keeping watch over her each and everyday as well.

You said the magic words...CHEAP!!! That's my kinda sale. I would love to come and shop with you, but like Theresa I am also trying to get into a show on the 16th and 17th. But you pick whatever date works for you honey!

Sounds like fun! I'm busy on the 16th & 17th -- and then those days that fall on Canton (1, 2, 3, 27, 28, 39, 30, 31) Maybe it would be easier to just say how about the 9th or 23rd?? Those days work for me!! (it is all about me, isn't it??) Did I make you laugh? Or at least smile real big.... Maggie
