Pinch Me....

Ok don't pinch me....
Guess what I got for my Birthday (in June) that I didn't know I was going to get... A trip to Chicago to go to NIADA http://www.niada.org! WOw! I've been to NIADA once before when it was in Las Vegas.
It's quite an amazing adventure, meeting and seeing old friends. I hope I'll do more of the same. I'm NOT familiar with Chicago... but hope the adventurer will get the better of me...
I think I'll take a couple dolls....
  Bella for sure as she is my traveling doll.
Possibly this character...
I'm pretty excited!

Happy monday doll face!!!

Thank you Pattee, she keeps me very busy and is so busy all of the time. The girl never stops.

Thank you so much, I am really having a great time making hearts. I am thinking of many different ways to make them too. Things just keep popping in to my head!

Pattee I have decided that I do not need 58 ways to slice cheese ;-] LOL!!
2 should be fine.
I like to dream, so sleep is important to me.
Who has time to clean house anyway?
I am so glad you are going to NIADA I am sure you will have a wonderful time.
Ya things change, I am sure we will have a beautiful place in time.

My father came back on the 6th. He and Lonnie are really good friends now. They had such a great time and spend 2 days together! I'm so jelours :-(
My wish is to have enough money (hopefully next year) and fly over to your place and we both gonna visit Lonnie! Wouldnt that be great?!

Hey Pattee
I hang out on the south side of Chicago and visit with friends, I go into the city to eat, the food is amazing. On Michigan Ave. I grab a bag of Fanny Mae Chocolate and hop on the Wendella a river boat and take a ride. The Art Institute is a also a favorite, I love the miniatures and all the famous paintings. Pizza deep dish is a must Ginos on Rush Street. I don't do much shopping I enjoy window shopping on the mag mile a lot, usually do a lot of walking around, it is a very safe city.
When is Chicago one must eat lots
LOL

Hey pattee... great name..... my best friends cat is called Trigger, so thats OOTQ! I am going to keep her... any animal that comes my way, does so for a reason. Although odd as it feels, Mousey passed away today, so we still have 8 doggys. My heart is broken, but will heal :O)

I hope you have room for Gothic-ish (really need to find her a proper name!) she'll be in the mail shortly.

Thanks for being there Pattee :O)
