Thinking of Blogging Friends Today...

Hey there & happy Friday!  These 4 day weeks fly - do they not?  I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend.  Non-stop action for us as usual :)

This blog has been so good to me and has put me in touch with so many sweet friends.  Your support and kind words mean more than you know.

Today, I am sending love and warm thoughts to my friend Emily who is the mama of three + two this week.  This many kiddos equals a lot of hooks in the hallway.  We may as well call her Wonder Woman, jeez. 

I am also thinking of my dear artist friend pve who recently sent me lovely stationery of her illustrations.  She is one talented lady and if you haven't explored her etsy store, you should go do that now.  I especially adore her pet illustrations.

I am especially excited to get the chance to meet the talented and incredibly energetic Cassie this weekend.  She and her husband are coming to town and we have a double date planned.  Yippee!

Last but not least, I am thinking of my friend Pam, who continues to remind me that I haven't posted about the stairs.  Hopefully none of you are waiting with baited breath on a stair runner update.  Here's what happened.  The carpet installer came several weeks ago and was prepared to do the installation.  When we took the final measurement, we realized that we were 2" feet short of having enough carpet.  This is when the old measure twice cut once rule comes into play, duh.  You may have heard me scream at that point.  I quickly ordered a third runner from Ballard which arrived within days.  The only problem was getting the carpet guy to come back.  I may have scared him away - yikes!  He texted yesterday to say that he would be here around 1:00 today.  Please send positive stair runner energy my way.  I think I need it ;)

That's all for now sweeties.  Have a great weekend!
