Catching Up and Playing Tag!

It has been another crazy week, and I've missed getting to catch up on everyone's posts.  But there is nothing better than a Saturday morning, sitting here with a cup of coffee, seeing what you all have been up to this week!

Jen over at Tatertots and Jello is celebrating her 200th post!  Go congratulate her and check out her giveaway -- she's so amazingly creative!

Becca at The Texas Darlings and Kasey at All That is Good tagged me in this very fun game.  So here I go!  I'm tagging 8 people at the end of the game...

8 Things I Am Looking Forward to:
-Date night with my husband tonight
-Celebrating the resurrection of Christ on Easter Sunday
-Hunting for eggs that I'm sure the Easter Bunny will leave for us
-ChellBell's formal portraits next weekend
-Throwing a party next Saturday for my friend Nicholas who just turned 40!
-Flip Flop weather
-Hanging out with Nancy and Renee and other bloggy friends in a couple of weeks
