listen to this.....

I wanted share this phone call I got yesterday.....Hello? ...is this Staci? yeah.."Staci this is your brother Larry" What the....?? I knew I had some brothers or sisters out there some where from my biological father.....who sadly I found out passed away a few years ago.....but I guess the kids just found out about the little secret baby born back in 1971.....he said they just found out about me Sunday....came across my birth certificate in their dad's garage....Wow!! The good thing is that he sounds really open....he wants all of us to meet..."all of us" oh yeah..their are 3 sisters and 3 brothers...all older than me..I think most are in their 50's.......and maybe one in their 40's.....he just had such a great attitude...If I never heard from him again.....I would still feel like alot of questions had been answered...I can stop wondering about my bio-father....and it's good to know that they came looking for me.......but I would love to see if we look similiar...he kept saying that I sounded just like his other sister.....so we shall see what happens... Okay today is weigh in day at WW....and since knowing I didn't have to weigh in last week....I kinda was naughty.....so I feel like I need the meeting.....but don't want to get discouraged by a bad weigh in...so I am going to use my get out of jail free card........but I feel pumped up and ready to get back on track....so hoping next week ....I WILL have a loss!!
the other day I came across this stamp online....and lets just say it gave me that tingley feeling.....I mean come on look at it!! it's magical.....So then I find out that you can only get it with the studio calico kit!! so on friday or saturday.. I remember that my friend alison gets the kits..(jealous) so I ask her if she will bring hers to the next crop so I can play with it (the stamp)....
well look what is waiting at my front door yesterday.........she surprised me with the entire kit!! including the magical stamp.....how spoiled am i?? I really don't know how I have been blessed with these friends......

and then last night....I get a surprise visit...from Mrs Jeniece...just doing some girl talk....and then she says oh yeah...look what I got you!! shut up.....2 presents in one day......is there something I don't know about....?? look at these making memories red alphas.....I think she said it's some special edition at michaels..??? I am probably going to put a hurtin' on those today at erins....and speaking of awesome friends.....I think the entire gang is getting together to crop on friday night!!!! can't wait!!!
did my first page in my 30six mini book.....sommer took this picture "way to close" ...but when I looked at it and saw my wrinkles...and age spots....I thought that would be a good first entry.......come on those are well earned laugh lines....and I wouldn't change one of them.....
and then I added another mini page...after I ripped up my box from studio calico.......
look at that stamp.....I'm in love!! finally got to use my prima alpha tape too...
and here's my first layout with the Studio calico kit....lovin' that kraft paper
and another one I did the other day....of us meeting stacy

Wow...I need to hear more about this brother/sister thing Friday night. That is wild! Again, you have always some story to tell. Never a dull moment on this blog! Hey, you need to post your pages at studiocalico.com because they need to make you a guest designer! That would be so cool!

Wow!! Keep us updated about this brother/sister thing. I can't even imagine finding out a whole family I belonged to and didn't know... What a wild ride, eh?

Love the book you're doing. I am going to do it too for my birthday.

I agree with Alison - don't forget to post at Studio Calico - you're work is fabulous! (So can I borrow the stamp?!?! :) J/K!)

Hi Stacey,

I'm also a weight watcher member and I feel your pain. But keep with the program, it really does work.

That is really cool about your brother!

Wow... it's been awhile since I've made a visit to your bloggy! This pregnancy has been making me a slacker!

How interesting that phone call had to have been for you! I think it's amazing after sooo many years to get connected with siblings...Wow!

And how fabulous that your dear friends spoiled you with such cool scrappy stuff... I love Studio Calico but I've never bought any of their kits yet. Someday!

Congrats on your weight-loss journey! I know it's not easy, and after November I'll be back at it again too!

Take care, girl! :)
