It's a....

Baby GIRL! We are so excited for Keira to have a little sister :) I know from experience how awesome it is to have sisters, hopefully they will be best friends like I am with mine!

Baby girl is doing great, everything they checked looked good and her h/b was 141. Ten fingers and ten toes and already beautiful :) Poor thing is going to get a lot of hand-me-downs, but we'll make sure to get a few things she can call her own ;)

Amex Starwood Bzz

I recently joined the Amex Starwood Preferred Guest Bzzcampaign through Bzzagent as well. Like many others, I definitely don't need any more credit cards, but was willing to learn about the card at least since none of the cards I have right now have any really great rewards to them. I also do not carry an Amex card.
The rewards look pretty good - you get pts you can use toward a stay at a Starwood hotel and bonus pts for signing up, room upgrades if you spend so much, etc. We like to travel so it sounds nice, unfortunately we have never stayed at a Starwood hotel and hadn't even heard of the brand before so I have decided not to apply for the card.

Elmers/Xacto Bzz

As a Bzz agent, I am loving the new Bzz Campaign I was lucky to be chosen for!
Elmers has always had the best products for gluing and adhering items for craft projects, and now I have an excuse to try them out.
Last weekend happened to be Gram's 80th Bday party, so I decided what better to start with than a card, made primarily by me but decorated by Keira and her newfound coloring skills :)
So I made a trek to JoAnn Fabrics for some extra supplies (paper, stickers etc) and checked out the goods in the Bzzkit to see what items would work with our project. We ended up using the Elmers glue stick and a few glue spots, along with the Xacto scissors and corner rounder. The end product was super cute & Gram loved it! Keira of course loved adding the stickers and coloring all over it as well :)
Pics will be added soon!
