Today I Am - a little belated April Edition!

Today I Am:

Reading: Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. It's on my list of 29 Things as part of reading 50 of the Top 100 books of all time. I have already finished To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. I love reading. There is something so very powerful in the written word, don't you think?

Listening to: James Morrison, The All-American Rejects and The Asteroids Galaxy Tour. (Thanks, Carolyn!!)

Obsessed With: The Biggest Loser. I have never watched this before, but I am hooked this season!

Thinking About: How worried I was last month about Breuklyn. Now that soccer and softball have started (plus a self-esteem boosting visit from Grandpa and Aunt Murray) I am happy to report that she is back to her happy self. Can you hear my relief? Phew!

(she is #2 for the Red Team)


Planning To: Scrapbook tonight! The Mosh Posh Design Team is unveiling their April layouts tomorrow at 10:00PM and I am way behind! Shocking, I know.

Dreaming Of: A strawberry birthday cake for Breuklyn's 6th birthday, which is only 13 days away! She wants a digital camera and a strawberry birthday cake. I think I can do that. I just can't believe that my baby is going to be six. It seems impossible.


Enjoying: The excitement over at the GCD Studios Blog! I feel so lucky to have been asked to join the GCD Studios Design Team. I can't wait to meet the girls that I will be working with!

Vowing To: Get more sleep. AND to get packages in the mail! I haven't forgotten you!

Working On: Getting all the materials together to make Egg Creatures and Spring Chickens cake pops. My box from Bake It Pretty came in the mail today, so I am ready to make some Spring Chickens!

What are YOU up to?

I love the Biggest Loser -- I have watched every season. So motivating and inspiring :) I'm getting ready for the madness to start.... three weddings, birthday parties, retirements, graduations, vacations.... you name it, it all starts at the end of this month and doesn't end until September! eek! :)

Oh Estee, I am so very glad to hear Breuklyn is back to her normal self! I can't wait to see all of your Easter creations! :) I am glad you are keeping up on your 29 goals. Good for you! I really need to do more stuff like that. I have been invaded by "Little People". Lots of little Fisher Price people! Need to stick to my scrappy goals.. really need to do better with that one! Got my MP kit today!! Yay!! If I wasn't so tired, I would sit up and scrapbook with you (sort of - long distance anyway!) :) Tell Breuklyn she has a really cool birthday!! It was my Grandpa's too! (4/19)

I'm reading more too now. I've read Note to Self, The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Home - Julie Andrews autobiography. Next is a new novel by Belva Plain and then some more autobiographies. I love looking into peoples lives.

I'm so happy to read that Breuklyn is doing much better! It's so good that your family is there for you and her.

Loved reading your Today I AM list.

Hi! I looked through your blog (don't you love finding a good blog and getting to read all the posts in one day!!...well, maybe that's just me, I don't know!) and I LOVE all the kids crafts. I don't have kids yet, but I love 'em and keep my friend's kids for fun and we make lots of arts & crafts (maybe because I get just as excited as the kids?!)...

...Ahem. I think my original point was..love your blog, love your column, excited to be a GCD girl with you! =)
