Tidbits - read if you're bored - ha!

My site is completely done, but there's a hold up with getting it "live" which is pretty discouraging, but hopefully SOON! Believe me, I want to share it with you! Alexis has seen it since she is my editor-in-chief (seriously, she is, that's her job), and she is even antsy about getting it up! I hope soon soon soon. Cross your fingers that it gets to be "live" this week. I'm so anxious, it's not even funny!

Big news! Two of my dearest friends had their new baby boy, Anderson Troy, September 25th in the wee hours of the morning. He is so beautiful! Check him out with daddy Rusty. (Rusty and I have gone to school togehter since kindergarten all the way through college. We lived together one year in college -- what great memories. I still remember one of our conversations at the dinner table when we were talking about marriage and babies. He never ever thought he'd see either. Now he's a very amazing father to two!)Congrats, guys! Love ya!

While I'm not shooting and getting orders organized or working on the site, I am trying hard to get ready for this Halloween party that I'm throwing, which seems to be getting bigger all the time. I need to plan the menu and my decorations. But I'm not sure when. Someone I'm sure I'll squeeze in time. Probably during one of my late nights (mornings) staying up when there is peace and quiet in my house. I haven't seen much sleep in the past few days. That's okay. I'm seriously not complaining. I love my coffee.

One of my bestest friends, Kristin, is coming to visit me tomorrow. She wants to see the house. What she doesn't know is, she's coming into a house full of boxes, clutter and dirt. It's so messy and so, uck. There just isn't time. If you're reading this, K, now you are prepared! ;c)

And, big news, Maia pooped on the potty last night! I'm so excited! Maybe NO MORE DIAPERS is in our new future. I really really really really really hope so. Really!

Alexis is having a big huge interview today for a kick-arse job for her at-home PR business. Thinking of you, Alexis!!!! Can't wait to hear!!

Ok, off to get ready for the shoot and package up some things that are going off to the post office today. I swear the next post I make will be "It's Live"!!!!! I promise. You won't see me till then. Can't wait to really be "back", too. I hope soon.

Way to go Maia!!! I'm dreaming of the day Aidan tells me BEFORE she poops. She's fabulous for telling me after the fact...stinker. Do you want me to help you with planning the menu for your party? Let me know if I can do anything at all.

Yea for Maia! Libby has pooped on the potty twice now. Of course...both of them happened more along the lines of, "Oh, you're grunting. Let's run you over to the potty NOW...yea, you made it, don't you feel like a big girl now?" As she's screaming, "NO JUST CHANGE DIAPER! NO POTTY!" Oh well, you'll have that. We'll just keep waiting (not so) patiently.

How old is Maia again? I know she's not much older than Lydia...I still haven't had any luck w/the potty.
