How was your weekend?

Mine was good. Nothing in particular happened, but it was still good. I was, yet again, reassured that I have the greatest husband in the world. One who has been tested by those vows "In sickness and in health" and has passed with flying colors. I have had a lot of health issues over the last year, and Mike has been wonderful. I know that there are times when he drives me nutty, but I am always reassured, at the end of each day, that I am the luckiest girl on the planet. Yesterday afternoon, he even went out and bought me cupcakes.
Now, anyone who knows me knows that not a day goes by that the thought of a buttercream frosted cupcake does not go through my mind. I love them. LOVE THEM! I collect things with cupcakes on them, Anne got me a cupcake Christmas ornament this year, all of my friends call me to tell me where the cupcakes decorations are if they see them. I just love them. Look at the decor in my crappy cubicle... It doesn't take much to make me smile. I even own 2 yards of cupcake flannel. Not ever sure what to do with it, but I HAVE it, and that is what matters. (things with birds are a close second)
We went to the parenting seminar on Saturday and I feel like I learned a lot.If you ever get the chance to see Hal Runkel speak- go. He has been on The Today Show and is so great in person. He actually lives right here in Atlanta. I often found myself looking at Mike whenever Parker pulled a "parker" and we tried to figure out the "new" way of dealing with the situation. Mike was much better than I was. He generally is.
In a completely unrelated note, this week is the big Craft and Hobby Association show out in Anaheim CA. I was invited to go, but had to pass. Tickets to CA aren't cheap. So, I have just had to resign myself to obsessively looking at all of the new sneak peeks on the manufacturers website. Look at some of these new lines: Girl Friday by Cosmo Cricket (LOVE THIS!!)

And last but not least, a new company called Scribble Scrabble:

Ooooh I am so excited. I know that Tonya and the girls are out there right now. Hopefully they will be bringing back some great stuff for me to work with. I love the colors and patterns. I never knew paper could make a person so happy until I started this crazy hobby.

Have a wonderful evening and make sure to tell your special someone that you love them.
