Oh, rumors fly fast, don't they now? Well, at least it's good news, no matter how shocking. But it is true...Blooms is expecting. Yes, I know. It's quite a shock, but I thought I could make these announcements to keep my mind free from the endless search of drumsticks, chips and salsa. You know how expectant mother's are.
See, it all started last year, and we were just thinking about it, and the more we thought about it, the more excited we became! So, I've been drudging into work every morning, sick as a dog, yet smiling to think these pains will not last forever. All the signs are there, not sleeping well at night, not comfy in my chair at work. Morning sickness, and how odd that it never really hits me til I get to my desk. Funny, eh?
Yes, I am naming my baby Liberty Belle. Isn't that a pretty name? I love the symbolism, because freedom is indeed beautiful! And I am indeed pregnant- with RETIREMENT! Yes! Only nine months to go girlfriends! Wooo-hooo! Fortunately, I do have a Midwife, Margaret (vintage stamper) who keeps a close eye on me at work. She is priceless. (and soon to be expecting her own retirement baby, shortly after me!)
So Kush, there ya have it. The story is out, and the leak was started by your own sweet hand! Oh, the stories in Jammer Town. No need to plan a baby shower, either. I have all I need, in Cody, Wyoming!
Hush now....Liberty is having some sweet dreams of Jonny and Audrey. Shh......
Thanks for looking!

I've been busy the last few days and haven't had a chance to stamp or even check in on the site. I finally got a chance this afternoon and I thought, "Let's see what Blooms has been up to this weekend."
You never disappoint. I don't know what I enjoy more: the cards or the stories. Thanks for making me smile.

Sis, you are too much. Your card is so cute and yep, it's count down time. I need to start planning Liberty's baby shower. You see I need to start early because as you know, I'm going to be in a very "delicate" position myself soon. So glad we can go through this together. Those sinkin spells around 3 p.m. are killers. Nutter Butters to the rescue. Hugs, Mags

*laughing* You had me! I thought to myself, huh?? When I finished reading I just smiled. Congratulations, Pat, you're going to love retirement. And being near family will be the icing on the cake. We need our families now more than I ever I believe. Let's be sure to keep in touch and encourage one another during this new season of both our lives. I'm going to take a leap here and say I'm sure you're going to be missed by many when retirement day arrives. Very, very cute card!
