Extra Extra!

I had a fun day yesterday in Cleveland at an engagement party BBQ... it was a gorgeous day for it, and I had great company there and on the drive to and from Cleveland. Good times! Today, I made up for my day off with a mostly work filled day. I am getting my beads made and crossed off my list, slowly but surely. I have some big news to share tomorrow! whee! Heading out for dinner in a minute, but I wanted to share the Extra links for the week now.
