What Spring Means....

What does spring mean to you? It could mean tiny spotted eggs divinely created in a lovely array of pastels. Does it mean silently growing new beginnings of all of God's greenery? Or gathering with loved ones and celebrating Easter with a feast after church. Or the annual hunt that children of all ages engage in to find as many brightly colored eggs as they can! Well however you define it, the designers at PrimRoses Boutique have found a way to match or enhance your definition. If you are looking for that special outfit or accessory for spring 2008 then you can look no further! Search PrimRoses Boutique today and see for yourself what spring means.

An Update On My Pregnancy

So I went to my usual doctor's appointment on Monday, and I am now dilated to 3cm and about 80% effaced. My midwife sent me over to Labor and Delivery, because I hadn't felt Mason moving as much as usual, and she wanted to get an ultrasound, and also monitor my contractions. After 3 hours spent sitting there hooked up to machines, they decided to let me go home because my contractions were very few, and very inconsistent. They did tell me that Mason looks great and his heartbeat is normal, everything looks good there. So now I am just walking around, going to work, doing my normal routine, but always have in the back of my mind that I could go in to labor at any second. I am pretty stressed out, because I have this fear that by the time I actually feel some strong contractions, I will be far in to labor, and maybe I won't make it to the hospital. Plus, my aunt, on her third pregnancy had a similar story, and her water ended up breaking and the head of the baby was coming out almost simultaneously. Good thing she had just made it in to the hospital, or else she would have delivered wherever she was. Just wanted to let my readers know, if you don't hear from me for a few days, I probably, finally, went in to labor and am taking it easy!

A Few Days Left For BethAndAngels Auctions!


I don't know much about Bethany, but from what I do know, she was a women who was in eBay groups, mainly to do with Gymboree clothing. Herself and 4 of her and her husbands children were hit by a drunk driver on Dec. 30th, 2007, and tragically their lives were taken. She has a husband, and two children that survived the accident. The eBay community has come together and listed a wide range of auctions, from photography services, to custom clothing, to collectibles, and all the money raised is going to help the surviving members of the family. Here is a little information I got off eBay:

"As fellow Ebay and yahoo group friends of Bethany, we have banned together to support this family in the best way we could. A launch has been organized to benefit the surviving family members in an effort to aid them in their financial distress as their physical healing takes place.

We are holding these auctions from January 13th through January 20th."

Click here to go straight to Beth&Angels auctions. There is still a few days left to bid, and anything will help!
