A Very Important Date

Good Friday morning blog friends!!  There are two pretty awesome blog parties going on right now!!

For the Our Daily Bread Designs March 2012 New Releases you still have until 8:00pm EST tonight (March 2nd) to leave a comment on my post that you can get to by clicking the link below:


Hop around to the rest of the designers (it only makes your chances better) and end up at the ODBD Blog to answer the question.  When I had a few minutes last night I read many of the entries and it simply made my heart swell!  So go, go on, be lucky – there four prizes out there!

For the Waltzingmouse Stamps February Release Blog Waltz you still have until 5:59am CST on March 3rd to leave a comment on my post that you can get to by clicking the link below:


Hop around to the rest of the designers (it increases your chances to win) then check on the Waltzingmouse Stamp Blog on March 4th for the winner.  This months release was very popular, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that you’re a winner!

As for me, I don’t have a card today because I have a very important date!!  A date at the airport to pick up my sweet son!  He hasn’t been home in a year and I’m giddy with excitement.  I’ll have someone to talk to!!  Eeek . . . I’m almost feeling sorry for him in that respect.  I have some things already done, ready to post this week but simply couldn’t a project up  today – after two back to back releases I slipped into a “catch up on my sleep coma” yesterday, lol!!  So, I should be back tomorrow with some goodies to share.  In the meantime, big hugs to you all!  Even though I can’t answer all of the emails that come through, I do read them and smile, or chuckle – some of you are real kidsters!

    Whoa! How exciting! Have a great visit with your son. I’m leaving for the airport tomorrow morning to go visit my daughter. She and hubby are expecting their first child and when she sent me a text pic of her barely there preg tummy, I thought to myself – I’m missing out – so I made arrangements to visit for two whole weeks. We find out what sex baby is shortly after I get there and I’m so looking forward to doing some major shopping for baby. Again, have fun. I bet your are bouncing off the walls with excitement.ReplyCancel

  • EileenMarch 2, 2012 - 10:02 am

    Enjoy your son’s visit, I love all the cuddles I get when mine come home for a visit. I am hoping to see my son in May/june when he hopes to come over from Japan with his pregnant wife and his 3 year old daughter YIPPEE!!!!!
    Hope you spend as much time with him as possible, we will wait till he has gone home to see more beautiful cards etc.
    LOL EileenReplyCancel

  • Debbie BMarch 2, 2012 - 10:11 am

    Congratulations on having your son come home! Just think if you talk his ear off, he still has another one he can take back with him. I love it when my son comes by. He tries to avoid me and stays closer to my husband, that way he gets to keep both ears!!ReplyCancel

  • Debbie RasmussenMarch 2, 2012 - 10:18 am

    Becca , today is indeed special. Enjoy every minute of your time together.ReplyCancel

  • Pattie J.March 2, 2012 - 10:21 am

  • Jean HempelMarch 2, 2012 - 10:33 am

    So glad your son is coming home and you will have time with him.. don’t worry about cards right now, enjoy him and talk and take time out.. know when my son came home from 2 years at war I didn’t think we would ever get enough talking done. Now he is off again and I can’t wait for the next visit.. so savor it while you can… Time goes so fast…
    God Bless. Hugs, JeanReplyCancel

  • RaquelMarch 2, 2012 - 10:34 am

    Becca–Enjoy your son and have lots of quality time with him. I know I have a son in Minnesota–he is a policeman–so from one Mother to another enjoy every second. God Bless you both.ReplyCancel

    I am thrilled for you! ENJOY every precious moment with your son!!!
    Bless you both

  • Charlotte ZweigoronMarch 2, 2012 - 10:48 am

    OMGoodness! You sound just like me… no one here in the house to talk to much at all. My DH works unbelievable hours, including weekends, but we are grateful because he was out of work right up to the very last drop of unemployment. And I am grateful because he is here for whatever little bit of time we are under the same roof. I try to remember what you said once about having music going. It does help keep spirits up. All this alone time does tend to make one a real “Chatty Cathy” when another human enters our space! Enjoy your visit with your son. Love is so grand.ReplyCancel

  • rosalieMarch 2, 2012 - 12:11 pm

I’m letting you know I received by Becca Bow Maker(s) this past Wednesday. It’s absolutely awesome and I was thrilled to receive a Becca original hand made card (Inspirational Eye Candy). Thank-you so much!
    Cherish and Enjoy!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    Oh how lovely for you. I hope you and your son manage to spend total quality time catching up; our children are such precious parts of us. Have a fun time with him. As to the sleeping, I think if you needed it your son will be grateful also, at least now he will have your full attention and not a bleary eyed version of you…LOL!! Enjoy my friend.
    All the best LindaReplyCancel

  • Ann Marie GovernaleMarch 3, 2012 - 8:38 am

    Awww…mother to mother (and of a son as well) enjoy your time with him. Too fleeting are the moments with our grown children. My son is coming home from college this week for one week so I so understand how you feel! I could not imagine seeing him a whole year. Have a great time!ReplyCancel
