Here's my story!! :)

I was home with the kids after they were in bed... and this unknown # shows up on my phone... Honestly I thought it was my nephew from out West calling to tell DH about his recent engagement, So, I didn't answer. i was waiting for DH to get home so they could talk! And then the call came again... I ignored it. Then the third time, DH was home... i said GET THAT... IT'S FOR YOU!! "Yes she is... just one minute please..." It was for me? Then my mind started going... within 10 seconds I was off the couch and flipping out!! (That's quick for me at this point in pregnancy! LOL!) "You're joking me!!??" I stupidly said. "Yes, this is a joke... we like to call people and get their hopes up and then tell them we're joking!" she said!! ROFL!!!

I am SO honored and amazed to be among such a list of incredible talent!! Special WHOOT to Erika Taylor... my fellow Magistical Memories team member and fellow Canuck!! Congrats!!
Marci... THANK YOU for sharing about this call at myStampBOX!! Amy, Ellen, Jing Jing, and Lynda... also fellow DT members for MSB or MM... Congrats on the Guest DT spots! You will ROCK it!

Tracy said we could scream it from the rooftop today... but with my steep roof AND my baby belly... I'll have to settle for here.....
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!
Thank you Tracy and Mark!! :)

OK, now I promised a RAK....
I am 25 days from my due date... meaning I really have about 2 weeks or so... And I have NO baby names chosen! I need ideas! Here's what I'm looking for...
I would like BOYs names that starts with J..... Not your common everyday name, but nothing too wacko either....
Here's how to play...
*Join my blog as a follower,
*for each J name you suggest, I'll enter your name in for a fun RAK!!
It's a baby and celebration RAK!! I have some fun PRIMA goodies to add to this RAK too!! Even if I don't choose your name suggestion, you are entered just for playing along! :)
Deadline is May 7....

So, that's my post for today!! :) Hope to have some scrappy goodness to share with you soon too... but nothing yet! :)
Have a great week!!

    I would stay away from anything that rhymes with Jayden... all the rhyming names in that vein are INSANELY popular right now... and there are a million spellings. Not a fun situation when school starts...

    I like Jeremiah and Jared
