Easter Eggs Eggstavaganza!!!

So nice to have my husband back home from his golf trip to Arizona!  It's always nicer to have help when herding kids!!! lol  I have been obsessing and obsessing over Gabrielle Messina's eggs I saw on Sugar Sugar's site!  I even bought one on etsy.  So I made up my version and gave them to my Mother in law and sister in law.  I bought some gold leaf today and covered these eggs that I will have to make up next week.  Gold leafing is not an easy undertaking!!  Anyways, yesterday I had an awesome day with my girlfriend Holly.  We had sooooooo much fun!!  We went to some fun artsy stores.  We had a fun lunch at Nicholett's, which is the closest thing OKC has to offer to NYC's Tavern on the Green!!! lol  I had had a cruddy week so it was great to be with Holly and talk and laugh all afternoon.  We found a great antique store with lots of millinery flowers to buy!!!  I was soooo excited!  I think we wore her out considering she is 8 months pregnant.
I have to give my speech to the Jr. League of OKC tomorrow night at the Lyric theater.  This is fine and I do it all the time for the Go Red Association however, I only get 5 minutes and there will be a women with a cue card counting me down!!!  I will feel like I am on the Oscar's I guess!!! lol
Kasey and I fly out Tuesday for D.C.  We are hoping we have all our ducks in a row since it is just the two of us!!!  I will be going to Capitol Hill to talk to our Congressmen and woman about Heart disease and telling my survivor story.  I am excited and a bit nervous too!!! Wish me luck!!!
