Making Memories Warehouse Sale!!!

So today Suzanne and I finally made it to the Making Memories Warehouse Sale. We have not gone for about a year, which I am sure made our husbands happy. We weren't there for the 1st day of the sale and am pretty sure we missed out on some cool stuff, but we did manage to pick up some goodies.
  • The Ribbonrie Book
  • 4 sheets of Wordfetti
  • different kinds of rub ons
  • paints
  • Foam Stamps
  • Eyelet phrases
  • Label holders
  • Gem Stickers
  • Metal Signage
  • Book Binding Tape
  • Fabric and Leather embellishments

I love the shopping, but it was fun to get away with a friend and just chat and not have my kidlets with me.

I made it to the library today. I brought Zack and the twins with me while Steve and Belle were off having some daddy/daughter time. I honestly could spend hours just wandering around there. I love just picking a section and looking at the different titles. I always seem to find at least a dozen books I want to read. I just finished reading A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks. It is the selection for this month's book club. It is the second time I have read it and still enjoyed it just as much. Suzanne was talking about a Dr. Laura book that she has been reading, The Proper Care and Feed of Husbands. It is her selection for August. I am interested to read it and see what it is about, but they did not have any copies at the library. I'll just have to wait.

Been thinking a lot about my little brother. He is not little anymore, he is 28 years old. This past weekend my mom called and told me that Chip, that is what his family calls him-to the rest of the world he is Vito, had a heart attack. I guess he was feeling the symptoms on Friday night and just took a sleeping pill and went to bed. When he woke up the next morning he was still having the pressure on his chest. He decided he might be a good idea to goto the hospital. The EKG showed not signs of a heart attack, went he results of his blood test came back the enzymes from a heart attack were there. He had angioplasty later that afternoon and a shunt was placed somewhere in there. It was quite scary. Sure, Pop has had a few heart attacks and even a bypass surgery, but I had never thought of something like that happening to Chip. It has been cute listening to my kids say their prayers, they keep asking Heavenly Father to help "Uncle Chip" get better. We all hope Chip gets better soon.

Wow, that's really scary. I hope that he feels better quickly. My brother just turned 42 and he had to have a pacemaker two years ago. Brothers aren't supposed to be sick! I'll keep him in my prayers! Now, about that MM sale! I wish that I knew the day before when this sale happens because I'd so be heading to SLC!! Looks like a great stash!

Have a great weekend!

That's so sweet of you guys to keep Chip in your prayers. Chip is doing really well right now, doctor ordered him 30 days off of work so he can give his body a rest. Not working and not being busy is something new to him, so he has been feeling antsy around the house. Let the kids know their sweet prayers are working and that Uncle Chip will be visiting them again soon! :)
