Don't laugh, but I don't even know Velvet Bricks real name, but I do know that I really like her. She has a sweet spirit and is a elementary school teacher. I would love for her to be Cole's teacher. She is already back to school molding the minds of her new class.
Amy Mowbray has been my good friend for several years now. She should be at the beach right around now for her annual family vacation. She is the organizational queen and the most amazing scrapbooker. Plus she's cute to boot!
Elisha gave birth to a very handsome baby boy named Kyler a month ago and already looks fabulous. Her toddler son Ryan is so darn cute....which you can tell on her blog, because she is the best photographer. Her photo's ALWAYS blow me away and leave my jaw sitting on the keyboard.
September is another long time dear friend who is an amazing mother to her teenage son Josh. She is a very talented photographer and has the biggest heart. She has gone back to work full time so she deserves her very own parking spot. I love her!
Deanna is book publisher and a new friend to me. We have so much in common and I immediately clicked with her. I truly enjoy everything about her. She's a real sweetheart! I look forward to a long term friendship with her.
Chad doesn't have a blog, but I saw this and had to add him. I just got a phone call from him. That was the second one since he's been in Afghanistan. I miss my boy so much and my heart aches everyday. I'm just going to say it....I HATE having him there and I don't care if that makes me look bad, but I'm his mother and in my mind KIDS should not be recruited in their high schools. They are too young to make those kind of life altering decisions. They clearly don't have all their brains yet. Yes, I am proud of him and fully support what he and the troops are doing, but he has committed 8 years to the military and that is something they shouldn't be able to hold over an 18 year olds decision that was pressures into by a recruiter...sigh. Done venting. He says he's doing good and getting ready for guard tower duty. He has received 10-12 rubber duckies and he loves them and proudly displays them in his room. He's going to take pictures for me. Thank you ladies for those of you who sent him ducks. :o)
STILL NO BABY! Brittany is frustrated...I'm frustrated! Okay clearly she is more than me since the baby is in her tummy, but I'm having sympathy pains for her. Brek works nights and has Wednesday and Thursday nights off so what we are hoping for is a Wednesday delivery. Keep your fingers crossed!
