Happy Nie Nie Day – Benefit Auctions

Please help if you are able!

Happy Nie Nie Day

Last week Christian and Stephanie Nielson were in a very serious plane crash. They are a young couple with four children under the age of six. They are in critical condition. Stephanie has third degree burns covering 80% of her body and Christian has third degree burns over 30% of his body. The recovery will be very long and very expensive.

If you are able, please consider contributing to this fund that will go directly to the family.

Today, several websites are auctioning off items for their benefit. Go here to see the comprehensive list:

We went to the Apron Gala last night at the North Market.

I made Desi his apron, and he won best male apron! 
Pretty cute.

Right now, my favorites are blue & white and aqua & orange.3. I really don’t like small talk. So talk to me about something real. Because if you want to small talk I will probably be unresponsive!4.

Christmas Tree Stand

I finally found the Christmas Tree Stand I have been hoping to find for awhile. And it is at Lehman’s hardware! Maybe Zettler Hardware can get it in sometime, but if not will have to stop in at Lehman’s later this month.
