I wanted to start out my first entry and let you all know how excited I am that we are online and functioning. This isn’t to say that we may have to work out some bugs and that we may have some growing pains, but we are here!! This site has been a long time dream. Now, when it first came about, it was a bit different, but then again, it was several years ago, and the internet has come a long way and there are so many new and exciting things that we can do that we couldn’t do back then. Even last year at this time, I wasn’t sure how we would get some of these things to actually work. It didn’t seem feasible. And here we are…Really!! I can’t begin to explain how excited I am!!

In the beginning I thought, you know there really should be a place where you could go and visit with friends and also get good information. At that time there really wasn’t much out there. And what was out there was difficult to find. Now, with all the new tools and all the behind the scenes work. We can go online and find exactly what we want with relative ease.

Not too long ago, my husband and I celebrated our anniversary. The thing is, we don’t get out very often together, so when we do we try to make it worth it. Well, our plans were to go out of town, but everything was stacked against us. We ended up going to dinner and decided to go shopping. My husband made his first mistake by going into Joanns Fabrics with me. We ended up shopping for stuff to use for my site. At first, he just followed me. Then he saw the 90% off sign. He isn’t a shopper, but he is always up for a good deal…the sign really got him excited! Of course, I love shopping and it’s alway's fun to spend money!  Scream praises to JoAnn's Fabrics!!  We went in prepared to spend whatever it took to get the few things we needed.  What we ended up with was 3 large bags full of stuff and we had spent only $100!!  Now, That is my kind of shopping!!  I got the best of both worlds…I got to go shopping, spend money, and go out to dinner with my husband.  I know that it wasn't what we had set out to do, and my husband would have rather done many other things!
