and here you have it….

Well, hello out there! I’m gonna have to get some of the girls at 435 to help me out with the blog. I am always so behind on blogging then when I step up to the plate my mind goes blank.

But fear not my friends, I am sure there is some kind of interesting information upstairs in my little head that is really aching.  Hmm…2 minutes later..nope not much.  Better yet, let’s talk about 435 gals.  It seems Chris has been coming up with some pretty wacky ideas, hence, Myrtle Madness Monday. Yup, we all wore our Myrtles, brought in green food and celebrated  Funday Monday! I got the pics to prove it.  This weekend we all  (well, almost, 23 strong) went to see Down the Line. Once again, Chris employed David in on her great idea to get a limo. Yes, we are dorks, so we celebrated our dorkiness in perfect style.

I can’t wait for you to all come to 435 Art Fair this summer. Kayla and Kelly are working on a little flashback from last year so we can entice those of you who are not planning on coming to join in on the festivities. It will be held on June 25 and we will have the pre-family affair as always on Friday the 24, and after hours party on the 25. Kacey has been driving  me crazy with all the details. I am a last minute planner. Yup, I told her it was best not to talk to me till April 1 cuz my mind doesn’t work that far in advance. But I do know it involves some real pretty prom dresses. Oh, I do know you will need to RSVP for the family affair and after hours party to  But we will give you firm details on all that later.

Joe was up all night sick but seems he is feeling fine now cuz I can hear him upstairs bossing Gabe around. I can also hear my stomach growling. I should’ve stayed at work where all the green food is. My house never has food.  We never know what to buy at the grocery store side milk and cereal. Poor Sam is sitting on the other computer working on fabrics with a real sad looking face. We are working on Spring 2012 and let’s hope she turns that frown upside down real soon…ooo there it is.

Myrtle Monday sounds like a fun day. I wish that I could come to 435. Maybe I will get lucky and win the contest. I know I am dreaming, but my head has been in the clouds lately, lol. Sorry, I couldn’t resist the pun! I am glad that Gabe is feeling better! 🙂
