Chrystal, Congratulations! You've mentioned before that you own a butcher shop and that sounds so strange, not because you own one, but because we never hear of butcher shop around here anymore. I'm in Kansas.

thanks everyone.. im so very excited..can't wait to tell my other half... umm.. I grew up in a butcher shop. When i graduated college last year.. the one that iw as working in was for sale.;. so my grandparents put in 1/3 and my parents threw in 1/3 and i had to come up with the rest.. The shop has done real good. We are more gourmet than what people think.. not the old fashioned type.. no animals hanging and no whole sides of beef for anyone to see... we keep that stuff behind the scenes..ahha..
anyways.. we have had good luck wtih this place and have had a few good offers.. i bought it for just under 100 grand.. and now its appraised at almost 250... so the improvements we made to satisfy me... obviously helped a bit... im so so excited.. but i plan to move back up north after a few years and have a few more kids... whoa sorry i completely got off the topic.. but thanks again for everyones happinesss!

My daughter made me a cake lol... she decided she wanted to say congrats to me.. she knew i was irritated cause i wanted to tell her dad but hes not near a phone for another few days... so i baked a cake for a neighbor and i left the room so it could cool a little more.. i was making an ice cream cake for her... and i came back.. and my daughter finger painted with her paints rigth onto the cake.. im gonna post the pic..its so cute.. she wanted me to eat it..and i told her no because i saw she used her finger paints as icing...shes a goof ball... lol

How sweet of your daughter to make you a cake--finger paints and all! Well the paints are usually non-toxic...not sure how they'd taste though--LOL!
