some auctions are still continuing through the weekend. Design Mom has all the details. hooray for this wonderful network of bloggers! absolutely unbelievable!!
p.s. as you've more than likely noticed;) i've changed the blog around a bit. it took me FOREVER and if you ask me how I did it, I will never be able to tell you because I don't even know how on earth I figured it out. I also put my music on shuffle mode...because as much as I love that Sia and Beck song...I'm kinda tired of hearing it everytime I click on my blog;) tell me what you think!!

I was just over at Beth's blog and read about Love For Nie. (Please click on the link to read more) Stephanie Nielson and her husband Christian were involved in a terrible plane crash last week and are currently being cared for in a burn center. You can also read more details at Stephanie's sister's blog...cjanerun.com. I'm just really touched by their adorable family and the amazing love they share. I've added a "donate to nienie" button over on my side bar. Her family has set up a paypal fund to help with their tremendous medical bills.
