The day is looking up

You'd think when you lock the keys in the car at 9:00 in the morning, the day can't possibly get worse from there. Luckily, today hasn't gotten worse. It's gotten better, nothing monumentally better, but better than the "locking-keys-in-the-car-getting-yelled-at-by-the-boss" morning I had!! :)
I moved into our new office this week Tuesday, it's pretty ok. We are going to paint and spruce it up a little bit, slap some paint on the walls and get some nice new shelves and make it a little nicer work environment. So, next week will be filled with moving desks again and painting, but I think it'll be fun.
I went and visited my friend Sarah, the other day. Sarah just had a baby girl, Hailey Pauline, on the 26th of March and I hadn't seen Hailey since the day she was born. It was so good to see the little peach fuzzed midget (her mother's words......not mine!!) She's a doll, with fuzzy dark hair, lots of smiles (and gas!! :) It was good to see her and Sarah too. I did her birth announcements, so I had to bring them out there and show Sarah, get approval :) and just hang out. It was the best day off I've had in a long time.....getting to hold a baby always makes them better!!
I don't think I've mentioned this yet, but since I mentioned the birth announcments, I may as well let you in on the news. I'm starting my own business. I'm starting a card making business. I know, exciting huh? Hailey's birth announcements were actually the first job I got, and it was a ton of fun!! I did a baby shower invitation/birth announcment for my friends co-workers, and I'm doing a friends wedding invitations for her wedding this summer. So, things are coming up that keep me busy. I just need to a) NAME MY BUSINESS (hardest thing I've had to do.......who'd have thought that naming your own business would be so difficult. I can name it whatever I want to....what's the hold up?!?!) and after I get a good name, I need to start marketing myself, selling individual cards at our farmer's market and other type settings like that. So, our summer is sure to be filled with businesss names flying all over the place, and cards and paper and glue.....Pray for Mat! :) Actually, pray for us both as we try and get this thing off the ground, that it would be successful and profitable, and enjoyable most of all. I'm really excited about the future and what will come of this idea. Keep me in mind if you know anyone having a baby, getting married, or in need of birthday party invitations! :) Or any potential business names?!?! :)
My dear friend Heather is having twins (hey, I should do her birth announcments, huh? :) soon here, and I just love being able to keep in touch with her over blogs...... What did we do without the internet and digital cameras?!?! I love you Heath!!
That better be all for now...... I gotta get back to work and be productive! Blah!!
Happy weekend, all!
