Random Update Post

I have a couple of little random updates that aren't really long enough for a solo post without much more effort from me than I'm will to use. So, I'm having a random update post.

First of all, the contest that I had, like 2 weeks ago, actually does have a winner. CG picked the winner because I seem unable to do it without feeling like I'm hurting everyone's feelings. So, if there are any complaints, send me an email and I'll pass it on to CG, guilt free. The winner of the lovely prize for best name is.......drum roll please.......
Her name suggestion was MAVIS which is an acronym for Mormon Assault Vehicle In Service...or anything else that uses the initials I and S like In Space! Congratulations Jillytacy! I'll be popping that in the mail as soon as I get up the nerve to take the girls to the post office!

Nextly, we have decided to take our house off the market and just rent it out and, in theory, buy our dream house. So far, we have yet to find anything, but we're keeping our fingers crossed. This should be quite the adventure. We've already rented out th basement and have someone interested in the upstairs, but we don't have anywhere to go. Except my in-laws basement. But I'll keep y'all posted on if and when we'll be moving. And I guess I'll have to change my name to Landlady of Perpetual Chaos. Don't you kind of feel bad for our future renters?!

This is what Babs looked like yesterday morning when I went in to get her up from her nap:
Yeah, I kinda freaked out a little. She looks pretty happy here, but I don't think this is a good way to wake up. Don't worry though because I remained calm enough to take pictures and Lolly was there telling me what to do the whole time.

We were planning on visiting my Dad this weekend, but now I'm not sure if we're going to be able to go. Last night Lolly was sporting a fever of 104.3...after taking medicine. We're taking her in to the doctor this morning so hopefully it's just a virus since she seems to feel fine otherwise and we can still go on our trip. If not I'm going to be really sad, but I will definitely be rescheduling for another weekend soon.

Now, this is more of a question than an update. I've heard of other blogs doing fabric swaps where everyone who is interested signs up and then you get to send some cute, fun fabrics to that person that you think they might like and then you'll get some in the mail too. That's pretty much the only kind of swap I can even think of doing right now and sounds like a lot of fun, but I don't know anyone who is doing one. I would totally do one, but I don't think there would be enough people signing up to do it. Unless you want to. Does anyone know someone who is doing a swap like that? I would do it, but I think you have to have at least 5 people sign up and I'm not sure that I even have that many people who read my blog! ;o)

That's all the updates that I can think of for now. I didn't really get all that much sleep last night with Lolly being sick, but never fear. I do have a Friday Favorite.

Love the name Mavis for the car. That's excellent! Poor Babs with her icky nose and good luck with Lolly's fever. Ugh!

Oh, poor Babs! She really is a trooper! it doesn't seemed to have phased her one bit! What a sweetheart!
Sorry I've been behind on blog reading. Life has been a little hectic here lately but I'll save all that for an e-mail update. Anyway I was excited to see I won! Yeah! Obviously I'm biased but I think Mavis is a great name!
