What an Exciting Day!!!!

My very good friend Cindy had her baby today! Cindy found out in January she was pregnant and we were sooooo excited. Cindy's due date September 24. Cindy & Kurt decided not to find out the sex of the baby. Cindy and I were convinced it was a boy since day one.

Last night I called Cindy on my way home from work to find out how her doctor appointment went. She was over due by 4 days. She said they scheduled a c section for September 30. I asked her to tell Kurt to text me boy or girl afterwards.

This morning I sent her a text saying only 24 hours left. I received a text back saying Maybe not at the hospital now. WHAT?!?!?!?! So for hours I sat on pins and needles. I must have checked my phone 100 times a minute.

I received a text message a couple hours later saying It's a GIRL! Little Miss Libby has arrived. I am soooo excited!!!! I can't wait to go out this weekend and buy her a little dress. Kurt sent me a picture of her earlier today. She is beautiful! 9 pounds 2 ounces 20 inches long. She has the most ADORABLE chubby cheeks! I can't wait to meet her!!!!

When I walked into work this morning my boss was walking by the front door. I had my ipod on, so I couldn't hear a word she was saying. I turned it off and she was all excited. She said we heard from the client we sent an RFP and we are schedule to make a presentation next week. You are going with us to LA. YIPPEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! This was soooo very exciting for me. I haven't ever been involved in the process of acquiring new business. Next week I will fly to LA with my boss and the regional VP.

5K Breast Cancer Walk

Today Art and I got up at 6am to get ready for HERS Breast Cancer 5K walk. My goal was to finish the race in under and hour and NOT be last. We finished in 59 minutes. I jogged to the finish when I saw the time. I was determined for it not to say 1 hour. The walk was around Quarry Lakes in Fremont. It felt really good to finish the marathon for such a good cause. The money will help local women who are fighting breast cancer. There were so many survivors there. One lady said she is a survivor for 35 years. She was elderly and did the whole walk with a walker! AMAZING!!!!
Cancer survivors released doves
Doves circling over head

Tshirt Refashion Class

The first weekend in October Art always goes away with his buddies for lumber jack days. This year I was trying to plan something fun to do. I was just reading some of the blogs I subscribe too and read mymamamadeit.blogspot.com was offering a class in Santa Cruz, CA. It's a tshirt refashion class. I called the studio to see if they still had space and what I would need to bring with me. I just need to bring at least 2 tshrits. I signed up immediately! I love how "my mama made it" refashions clothes! I have been wanting to make tshirt with ruffles, so here is my chance!!!!!

Thursday night I went to see PINK!!!! It was an AMAZING show. I can't believe how much energy that girl has. She had dislocated her shoulder, but she ran around that stage all night long in high heels!

Fruits of our Labor

Remember my post on my "city garden"? Well here are some of the tomatoes that we just picked. Art also planted potato peels and 2 dime size potatoes have popped up.

Tail Light

I am happy to report my left tail light has FINALLY been replaced!!!!! I think it's been 4 yrs ago someone rear ended me and smashed my tail light. I covered it in red tape and honestly didn't think about it again. My FIL has been on my case to get it fixed. I ordered a tail light from Ebay a few months back. Accidently had it sent to "the dark place". I was told by H R that they sent it back to the company because they had no idea what to do with it. OBLIVIOUS!!!! The company never received it back.

I ordered another one last week. It arrived DH put it on and it looks AMAZING! I will no longer look like a red neck in my red mustang.

Met Grant from Myth Busters

Today is the grand oening of Art's new store! So excited for him! They had a big open house and lunch. I left work early, so I could go. Someone mentioned the guys from Myth Busters are here. I look over and there is Grant from Myth Busters. He was standing right beside me, so I said could I take a picture with me? He was gracious enough to do so!!! 2009 is a year for me to meet celebrities!

Art's company will be featured on an upcoming episode of Myth Busters. They donate a lot of different stuff to help Myth Busters. I believe the episode is something about blowing up a Christmas tree. Grant said it should be on after October 7. It's not the season premium but shortly afterward.

I did a lot of cooking on Sunday. I put stuff in containers for us to take to work this week. I am trying to cook enough on Sunday that we dont have to do a lot during the week. We take lunch and breakfast with us 4 days a week. This was sooo easy!!!

1 package of refrigerated Pillsbury Pizza Crust
1/2 cup freshly shredded mozzarella
2 teaspoons fresh grated parmesan (I omitted this I do not like parmesan)
1 cup pasta sauce divided
1 pound of ground turkey
2 teaspoons of milk


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Cook ground turkey meat
3. Layer the turkey and mozzarella cheese over the sause. Cut 12 strips of the dough. Fold strips over filling, so they overlap. Brush with milk and sprinkle with parmesan.
4. Bake for 12 minutes

Jessica Simpson's Chicken & Dumplings

I made this on Sunday and it was DELISH!!!!! I will for sure make this again!

1 Rotisserie Chicken, off the bone, shredded
3 cans crescent rolls
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup chicken broth

Roll chicken into the cresent rolls, and pace seam side down in a greased 9x13 pan
I used 2 cans of the rolls and it covered the entire pan. I had a lot of chicken left over though.
Whisk together both soups with the broth and pour over the chicken rolls. I also mixed 1/2 pound of frozen veggies in the soups. Use the 3rd can to make a crust over the top of the rolls.

Bake 30 minutes at 400 degrees.

Ready to go for a bike ride!!!!

Phone & Camera Case

Camera case

One of the nesties sent me a picture of a case she found and wanted to know if I could make her one. I sent her a couple pictures of fabric and she picked the birds. It was super easy. I put batting in the middle of each layer and put a small pocket in the inside. This way she can put her ID in the case with her phone and head to the gym.
