My Very First TooT! & Wedding Pics

First I need to share my excitement because I just can't contain myself anymore :) On Friday, I received an email from Cantata Books saying that they want to publish one of my layouts in an upcoming book! I was so excited that I was literally shaking & crying! This is my first time being published, so as you can imagine, I'm on cloud 9 right now :) I never even got a chance to post the layout in my gallery on 2 Peas, but now I'm glad I didn't because I would have to just remove it anyway. I'll just say that it's a layout I did about my granddaughter. As soon as the book comes out, I will share the layout here, but that will still be a few months down the road, I'm sure.

Now, onto the wedding pics.....this is my sister Donna & her son (my nephew) Christopher. He just got married the first week of March. I was supposed to go to the wedding with Donna in Georgia, but things came up & I couldn't make it :( As you can tell in the picture, he's extremely TALL!

Here he is with his new wife (sorry, but I can't remember her name). I haven't had a chance to meet her yet, but from what Donna has told me, she's a very nice girl. I'm just so happy for Christopher & wish them all the best.

I am definitely loving this Spring weather that we're finally having! It was still a little chilly this weekend, but today it's supposed to be in the 60's & then tomorrow, they say we're going to reach 70! YEEHAW! :) Hopefully that snow we had last week is the last of it until next Winter!

Now onto a blog meme challenge that I just found today. Lisa posts these Manic Monday Meme's every Monday & they sound like a lot of fun. Here are my answers for today's meme:

1. When eating pancakes or waffles, do you put your syrup on top of the pancakes/waffles or on the side and why? Always on top.....I'm not an 'on the side' kind of person :)

2. Do you cut your sandwiches on the diagonal, straight up the middle or not at all? Either way.....doesn't matter to me just as long as they are cut.

3. Do you tuck your top bedsheet in with hospital corners or do you like it on the looser side? Definitely looser.....I need to be able to wrap them around me at night :)

That's it for now.....hope you have a wonderful Manic Monday :)
Benita
