Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? 63 and Counting!


Hi, all!

It's Friday again, and we all know what that means - - - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!!!  Let's go!


It's been a busy week around here, finishing up some things for the quilt ministry and getting ready for vacation!  But I've got a few big things I'm whooping about this week....

This year's Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge has opened up, with sign-ups starting last Sunday, and we already have 63 people signed up!!  I'm still getting my act together and slowly getting organized, but it's so good to see people ready to jump in and get started.  If you haven't signed up yet, click here and fill in the form you'll see partway down the page.  You'll need to scroll down to fill out questions that don't show in the box.  Be sure to click SUBMIT at the end so all your hard work doesn't go to waste!

And I do have a request - if you are interested in doing a guest post, please email me at salliesue57 (at) gmail (dot) com as soon as possible, as I'm trying to get that all set up next.  I'd love to be able to announce them in this Sunday's post, but time may be my nemesis!

The second big thing we're whooping about around here is related to March Madness.  My husband graduated from the University of Miami (FL) many (many) years ago, and he is over the moon excited that both the women's and the men's basketball teams have advanced to the Sweet Sixteen stage of the tournament!!   We often joke that when he went to school there, you could go to a school football game for $2, sit on the 50 yard line, and be alone - but the band was amazing!  So we are on pins and needles waiting to see how the Canes do this Friday, hoping they advance to the Elite Eight.  Just remember, it's all about the U!

And the last big thing?  I went to my doctor yesterday and she said my CT scan looked excellent and said I didn't need to come back and see her for six months!!! Those words were music to my ears and definitely had me dancing in the aisles!

So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?


And now it's your turn!

What's got you whooping it up?

What's making you do a little happy dance?

Share!  We want to dance right along with you,

And it's always more fun to dance with friends!

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.

Hope to see you there!
