Arizona Bloggers and I found a treasure chest!

Hi, I hope ya all have had a pretty spring weekend. Its been gorgeous here. I have been enjoying all the pretty flowers planted all around the city. On Saturday we had a luncheon at the Back Porch Tea House for some of the Arizona Bloggers. It was the first time I had attended and it was so much fun. I loved meeting everyone in person. I love blogging and I have had the pleasure of meeting alot of my online friend the last couple of years. I truly cherish these meetings! One of the ladies defined our blogging friends in the most awesome way. Because it is online, you get to know your friends heart. That is your first impression, the REAL person, not the physical person. I thought that was very well said. I cant wait until we all meet again!

I stumbled upon a buried treasure! Actually a friend of mine called and said they were given these beads and were going to put them on Craigs List but wanted to call me first. Well, hello! I am so glad he did. There are thousands upon thousands of beads, tools, containers, findings, and STUFF! And I got an unbelievable deal on these. The only thing that would have made this perfect, was if there were all mostly pink instead of blue.LOL But I can go with the flow!

I hope everyone truly has a beautiful week. I want to also thank everyone for the well wishes for my daughter April. She is still in the hospital for tests, but thats a good thing.She needs a couple things fixed, but she is healthy. We just have one sad little boy who misses his Mom. He cant visit her. This time of year they dont allow kids under 12 because of flu season.
