I'm so excited to tell you that I am the featured crafter today on Crafts On A Whim. She makes me look really good so I hope you guys will go over there and visit!

I made this purse/pocket yesterday with directions from Lauren's blog.'ll find that it looks a lot like hers as when I make something like this for the first time I typically will make the exact same one (or very close) and then go back and add my own flair to it the next time. I have taken this purse and put some tissue paper inside and then filled it with Ghiradelli chocolate. It is for the dentist office too. Although Kyler did say...maybe we shouldn't give the dentist chocolate. To which I replied...ah...they will just go brush their teeth right away. I'm sure they will love the Ghiradelli! I mean who wouldn't love those caramel, mint, and cocoa little squares? And, if they don't like them they better just give them right back! Are you getting the idea that I love Ghiradelli? Brunette

I'm just is March 28th right? Well, guess what? We have a snow advisory in effect from 11 a.m. this morning until 10 p.m. tonight. WHAT? Shocked 3 That is absolutely crazy. Thankfully it will probably melt within the next couple of days but sheesh! Who wants snow this far into March?

And, a little update on Kyler. Yesterday was the first time since Monday that when I asked him if he wanted Tylenol after school he said no. That is great! He has his appointment on Monday but Jon has a cleaning today so I'm hoping that maybe the dentist will take a peek at it today just to make sure all looks good for the weekend.

Oops...there is my signal. The clock is going off and that means it is 7 and I turn into a pumpkin. No, actually, that means it is time for Kyler to get up and our day to get started. So...I'm off!

Have a super fantastic Friday!
