Lil Blue Boo had a baby today! We got to watch my niece Courtney for a few hours while my sister-in-law took my 2-year-old niece Cari to the desert zoo. Here’s Courtney helping me do some computer work:
Today was really windy but warm. We soon moved outside. She’s the best baby….so content and happy all the time. It was so fun to have her for the day……except for the poopy diaper 😉
Isn’t she precious?!
The girls are still working super hard on sorting spring orders! They are all shipping out this week at the same time. Just finishing up a few t-shirts here and there. Gicela silk screened well over 200 t-shirts yesterday and today……so we started working on some new things to move away from the monotony. So look for some new previews soon! We can’t wait for you to get your packages of spring goodies in the mail. Every piece has been made with love and inspected for perfection. Thank you!
Lisa sent me this photo this morning from across the room. She’s always stealing my awesome stapler….so I gave her this little wimpy one I found while cleaning. I wonder what her message was?
No news from Dr. L’s office today….so maybe that means my scans were unremarkable. Farmer’s market is tomorrow morning!
That baby is adorable! I don’t think I’m quite ready to be a mother but seeing cute kids like that makes me kind of want to have one. It looks like you guys has a lot of fun together!
Sending good thoughts and prayers your way!
Lori Harmon says
You are so cute! I pray for you and your family everyday.
Meredith K says
Wow I remember the days of your small desk shelf filled with a stack of orders this is so wonderful to see how much you have grown in just a year. I think no news is good news and gosh you have the most beautiful bald head. Hugs! Mere
You were jealous of the poopy diaper weren’t ya?????? Uh huh! 😉
No news is GREAT news! I prayed for the first time in a long time last night, for you!!
Ruby Lynn says
Those cheeks call for being pinched! Courtney’s not yours Ashley! Really now, I know you’re cute and all but come on. 🙂 hehe
Waiting to hear what Lisa thinks of the Wimpy, Wimpy Stapler. If she sneezes, it’s off the desk.
I agree, no news is good news from Dr. L. – Prayers and Healing Light coming from Oahu. Love, Ruby
Makes me smile and think of the song “what a beautiful day” by u2:)
You truly are beautiful…inside and out. 🙂
“A happy heart makes the face cheerful”
Fingers crossed for unremarkable!!!! XO
Linda Kittmer says
Poor Lisa. Obviously she suffers from stapler envy. She needs to choose Joy and get over it! LOL
Michele M says

Deb Moriarty says

Melanie G says
I always love your photos. The photos of you & your niece make me smile. You can see the love. Have a great time at the farmer’s market!
beautiful baby, beautiful lady!
Shannon Pennicott says
Sounds like a great day…jealous of how easy it is for babies to poop???
Hehehe I love the staplers, and the adorable baby! :O
I hope that no news is good news! 🙂
Yay for no news!!! Glad you enjoyed your visit today! Betcha you were jealous of her poopy diaper! Prayers for good news this week. Xo. Denni
Beautiful photos, you really do have a lovely shaped head. 🙂 I love reading about your days you are an inspiration. I think you need to be on Ellen so the whole world can see how wonderful you are not just those lucky enough to already know about you. I don’t know you personally and will probably never meet you but I feel lucky to have been able to have a glimpse at your life. You have encouraged me to enjoy life each day, appreciate everything I have be it big or small and to laugh often. Thank you for your openness and honesty. You are a breath of fresh air. I wish you all good things.
We have the same stapler and ADORE it! (Is it possible to adore a stapler?)
I only just found your blog a few weeks ago – came for the crafts, stayed for the stories (and crafts!) and look forward to the daily glimpses of your journey…
Your attitude and outlook are incredibly inspiring and empowering, and you are in my prayers daily.
Beth Morrow says
Yes she is precious! Can’t wait to get my tshirt. Praying for a good report.
Meredith M. says
Praying for totally boring scans. Just organs with nothing out of the ordinary going on. Stay strong sweet Ashley.
Beautiful day you both had! Gorgeous pics!!! praying for you Ashley!
Michele C. says
oh goodness seeing all those items lined up makes me so happy! I can’t wait 😉 Looks like a gorgeous day with a beautiful baby, what fun! I’m going to go with the “no news is good news” theory too – thinking of you!!! <3
what a cutie that little one is…i LOVE the picture of the two of you on the blanket.
Ann W says
I was so proud to meet you with Mr W. He cherishes your comments.
My daughter Karen is flowwing you. She is in Cambridge England. He
husband is a proffessor doing cancer research.
Hope we see you at chemo tomorrow.
Only Joy and Love
Hi Ashley! What a little cutie your niece is! It seems like forever since my little angel was that age (she’s 6 now). Just wanted to say thank you for posting and keeping us up to date. You inspired me to start my own blog (among other things like choosing joy EVERY DAY) , but I am still completely and 100% addicted to yours! I am sooooooooooo excited to receive my Choose Joy necklace…..I am checking the mail everyday like a little kid waiting for her “secret decoder ring” to arrive. Haha! I pray for you and am sending positive thoughts you way always. 🙂
I also subscribe to the no news is good news theory! Love and thoughts to you always xx P.S. cute pics
Courtney is totally adorable and the two of you are so cute together! Thank you so very much for sharing your days and the joy you find in each one. The staplers are a bit different, huh? 🙂 Looks like a ton of orders and that’s wonderful!
Have fun at the market tomorrow. Prayers and good thoughts continue ~
I love that you take pictures and share the true experience of what you are going through. Your strength and positive attitude is inspiring.
My husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer at the age of 32. Like you, he had a very positive attitude and we both felt it was just a snag in the road of life. In other words, “Let’s just treat this thing and get one with it!” We have four kids who gave us good reason to keep fighting.
It has been 11 years.
He is a survivor!
Just like you are!
I look forward to following your journey through your treatment and beyond.
Oh my gosh! I have that same stapler! I love the shape and the heaviness of it and I guard it from my children. 🙂 I’ve never seen anyone else with one. What a crazy coincidence! I love your blog and though we don’t know each other, I think of you often and pray for your good health. Have a wonderful day!
Your niece is as beautiful as you! 🙂
heads down and prayers up (as always) for you Ashley!! I’m positive the scans will be “unremarkable” …..but that will ALWAYS be the only thing about you that is…xoxo
Patricia Blomeley-Maddigan says
The pictures of you and your niece are not only priceless, they are beautiful
God is surely blessing you and yours.
Heather G. says
What a cutie your niece is! And wowza – look at all the spring lbb amazingness!
Beautiful pictures Ashley!! I missed you today but I remembered you had chemo..hope your chemo day went well and you are feeling ok..you are in my prayers.
Aren’t they adorable and so much fun! Especially grandchildren…you can give them back when the going gets tuff!! (Not really, mine live across the street and I’m sooo blessed I get to see them every day!!) Praying you have a good week!
God love you Ashley, beautiful babes.xxxx
Brandy M. says
I hope your scans are looking good! Fingers crossed!
What a sweet sweet niece you have! I’m even ok with the poop – I’m a RN, I have to be! LOL
I hope chemo goes well for ya, Ashley!
cindy brickley says
Here we go again, every time I see an adorable baby, (and she is) it makes me want to have another one. My only son is going to be 22 this weekend. And at age 52! I guess it’ll have to be a test tube baby. Well, maybe not. I just have to remember the poopy diapers part and the stinky barf part. Hey, I’ll get over it. Cute pic of both of you. Never stop smiling.
