Great news!

My eldest son Shaun called this afternoon, and told me he is engaged to be married!! I was kind of in shock but it's settling in now. WOW! Another daughter to love! And... they are getting married in the Temple! =)

Looks like it will be a May wedding. So that's really fast!! I have so many weekends already filled up until July. Kids come first though.

I have so much dejunking, cleaning, uncluttering, to do around here cos they are getting married in the Vegas Temple which is REALLY exciting for me, cos that is MY temple.

I want to make them something but I just don't know what... so much thinking to do. =)

I also need to lose 20 lbs before then. (yeah- I know, it's a goal anyhow!) And I would love a new dress. I haven't had a new dress since 1997 - wow- that's 10 years. I wore it to Christopher's wedding so it would work for Shaun's too, but maybe... if I lose that weight I can get a new dress as a reward.

Shaun sounded so excited and happy! I am really happy for them =)
Joanna is marrying into a nutty fun family and I love her already!


Haven't done much in the way of knitting or crocheting in the past day or so, but I am going to start a loomed bear tonight. I have yarn picked out and everything.

Tonight Katie and I are also going to a meeting for the RELAY FOR LIFE teams. Need lots of info on that so we can get started working on it. Our Relay for Life event is April 20th and 21st this year.

Well, when I get that bear all figured out I will post the pattern either on here or on my site.

How exciting! A wedding in May! My eldest son, Jeremy is getting married this coming September. So much fun! Of course, I'd like to lose about 100 lbs, but will settle for 40 by then, lol! ( Or anything at this point, I'm not doing so well in that dept!)
Looking forward to seeing that loomed bear pattern! Always love to see what new and wonderful ideas you come up with!
