I'm going to get working on adding links to their blogs in my sidebar so you can get to know them along with me and check out all of their amazing creations!

Today is the first day that I woke up feeling almost back to normal. I have had a yucky cold since Thursday. Now Special K is sick so we're all just taking turns. My friends Jenn and Frank made me chicken soup yesterday and brought it over for dinner. That just blew me away too! I'm always the one taking dinner to peeps so it was such a treat! Thank you, my friends!!

I love all of your upbeat sayings and quotes that you have been leaving on my last post. Keep them coming all day today and I'll have Melissa pick her faves tomorrow. Post them right here!! We all need a little uplifting these days! Here was the paper in Boise this morning:

Forcing myself to take a break from reading the paper and watching the news. So depressing. Maybe I'm sticking my head in the sand, but why not pretend it's the sand on a beautiful beach in Hawaii! :0)

There will be a new challenge up at The Design Experiment today. Go check out the challenge here.

Here is my layout for the challenge. I did it on my favorite color, RED!

March started out pretty darn great for me! I hope you all had a great weekend.
