I am so glad that you made a list! So fun! I think it is so neat that you cut up your wedding dress to make your girls blessing dresses. My plan has always been to do that but I don't know that I am talented enough. I like fashion too and also wish that I had enough money to be fashionable. One day! I am glad that you posted today because every day I wonder if you have had your little guy yet. I am so excited for you to meet him.

Happy Birthday yesterday! You could have had a birthday baby! It was the Anniversary of Shaun and I's first date yesterday too! What a good day! You are getting so close to having your little guy! Good luck with everything.

Jennie's bunch said...

Jen said...

Katie... um, what was so funny? You're worrying me here!

That was so much fun to read. I learned so much about you. I agree with the dumber after school comment. I guess I've only been out a little over a year so maybe I'm not quite so dumb yet :) Oh, also, I watch OTH and Gossip too...I don't tell anyone though! Haha. They are soooo good!

Happy Birthday yesterday. I wish I would have thought to call you. For some strange reason I was thinking about you yesterday. Thanks for dropping me an email, I would LOVE it if you would stop by and see us when you are in Iowa. Good luck the next couple of days. I loved reading this post. Very fun!
