I teased a LOT about that little town in Iowa but I must admit that it is really a nice town. If Keith were ever to get a job offer there, I think we would go.

It all took place in a small town in Iowa whose claim to fame is the annual Tulip Festival and the locals like to say "If you ain't Dutch, you're not much!" (Not exactly politically correct. I may have to write the chamber of commerce . . . but I digress.) We filled up the Explorer at the local gas station--there are more than one station so don't go that route of thinking. Then we had to have some pics by the giant windmill. We headed down to the Bilby home to meet and greet. When we saw they were not home, we asked the neighbor if we had the right house. He said it was and that they had just gotten out of church as his parents attend the same church. (I don't think our neighbors have a clue what we do . . . I digress again.) A few minutes later, up drive the Bilby bunch in their minivan and out pop all 6 of them with big smiles on their faces.
What a treat!! When we stopped by the Bilby home on Sunday, Mr Brian came over for lunch. If you know a single gal, just send her to Iowa to meet this wonderful man--hey, he cooks, that makes him even better!! Mr Brian wanted pictures of us "bloggin' babes" with him. So I whispered in Becky's ear to give him a peck on the cheek for the picture. Of course, he just laughed. Hmmmm . . . he must be tall cuz we're both standing on our tippy toes. So, that makes tall, good lookin' and a great cook. What more could a gal want???

Today, I attended the annual ASCP conference on the west bank of the UofMN campus. I had to cross the 10th St. bridge which runs parallel to the former 35W bridge that collapsed. It was the first time I had seen it and it is quite a site. Now, it is real to me. Simply amazing.

As you probably noticed, I updated my template AGAIN but there is good reason. I need it to be the best that it can be so that when people look, they will say "Hey, that's one cool template. Where can I get one like that?" They will, of course, look in my sidebar to find out that I make my own templates and then, contact me. The best part is that until November 1, all proceeds from Blog Fairy Templates go toward bringing Ethan Shockley home. Please go HERE to see their story. So, if you are in the "market" for a new blog, header or maybe some LID numbers, please contact me HERE. To view some of my work, go HERE.
Together, we will help bring Ethan home.

So, Mya and I have been keeping busy with housework. The laundry has piled up and somehow the floors can always use vacuuming.

Yep, I'm not doing so good with the "waiting" today. Will try to cherish the moments this evening brings.
School starts tomorrow. Erin is out having one last get together with all the folks she will spend tomorrow with--tomorrow will be more organized and have homework. That's the major difference if you ask me. ;)
Hope you are having a great holiday weekend!
