What a great time. Go HERE to see what we saw at Oprah. Well part of what we saw. The behind the scenes is alot of fun. That is when funny things are said and alot of joking happens. Oprah is gorgeous! I knew she was, but in person...she really is. It was cool to see Marie do one of her Dancing With the Stars routine with her partner Jonathan. Marie is so tiny. Much much more so than on tv. We had wonderful sunshine driving up. No major issues finding the hotel. Something we did that I was waffling on and Deb was smart enough for both us, was taking a cab downtown to Harpo Studios. We left at 5:45am and it took about 45 minutes to go 13 miles! And this is with our cabby knowing all the ways around highway construction and traffic jams. The stress would have not been a happy way to start the day and that is IF we had even found our way. It was such a great trip and time spent with my sister Debbie.
We are on Baby Alert with Hillary, Debbie's dd. They kept her last night until this afternoon and sent her home. Anytime now though. Please help us pray for an easy delivery for her. First baby and first grandbaby and first GREAT grandbaby.

I posted a few finished goodies on my website. Take a looky if you like Raggedies and pincushions please.

Hi Angela! I'm Michele from another blog and I did a post on Marie and her fabric line, one on her father dying and then one on the family being on Oprah. So, when Connie W. left your link at my site...well, how neat is that! Wow, what an experience for you! Off to read more of your blog, now...come visit mine!

What a cool trip! I'm not sure of the details, but did you get to go behind the scenes at Oprah? Very fun, either way!

Being in the audience at an Oprah show is amazing isn't it? I went to a show about 10 years ago when I lived in downtown Chicago - I'll never forget it.
