A Great Trip & Sweet Easter Surprise!

Hi everybody! It's been almost a week since my last post. Good grief! I hate going that long.

My daughter & I had an awesome time in Chicago with our friends! We shopped, went to an indoor water park, attended a looooong Easter Mass on Sat. night, saw Mary Poppins at the theatre, ate at Lawry's Steak House & even drove to a small beach so the girls could dip their toes in cold Lake Michigan! We drove around Chicago after the show Sunday trying to find Oprah's studios but no luck. We even asked several people but only got different directions each time - ha. Oh well... The 4-day weekend went by fast. Thanks Andrea & Elle!!!

When I got home there was a wonderful surprise package in the mail from one of my nicest customers & friends! It's the adorable stuffed doll & bunny in the picture above. Thank you so much Heather! You are so thoughtful.

I have GOT to get busy painting!!! Being out of town & helping kids with school projects seems to be taking up most of my time these days leaving little room for creating. I hate it when I have nothing on ebay! I'll be leaving again on Friday for Kansas City with my sister so there's another weekend gone. I'm so excited though cuz we're going to see The Phantom of the Opera & have front row seats! Woohoo! We'll stay at my mom's & my sister-in-law is going too so it'll be a great girls' weekend! There won't be any new art to show for it but when I get home I plan to kick out some new paintings! Happy hump day everyone!
