A little piece of happy news...

I can't believe that I cut big piece of flesh off the tip of my left thumb (OUCH) when I chopped the onions for the stuffing for the turkey! I thought I am always skillful whn it comes to knife! Well, not today! I am bringing the big bird to my in-laws for Easter. I was kind of mad with myself and thought :"what a day"!!! It took a big Band-Aid to stop the bleeding!!! And then I found THIS out. Wow! No more sore finger!

Thank you, Treehouse, for choosing my tree card as the winner of the April contest. I will be guest designing for 4 challenges every Thursday in April. Please stop by and play along with us!
More details for winning a spot as May guest design spot, see here.
And yes, my name was Virginia Liu before I was married to Dr. John. Somehow Treehouse knew that and put my maiden name on the card-PERFECT! That's how I told Dr. John, After marrying him, I became so selfless because I dropped the I in my last name-so true!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I just came back from my in-laws (after two days without internet!! ) and found out about THIS. I'm SO thrilled and yes, my finger is healing. (no band-aid needed any more). Thank you, SRM blog!

Congrats, V!!! Big hugs to you, and I also saw your Easter card featured on... oh, I forgot the blog name, but congrats to you on that, too!!! You have made a name for yourself! (But will that be Liu or Lu?) ;) We ladies could never hyphenate, because then you'd be Virginia Liu-Lu, and I'd be Wang-Yang! Congratulations again, my friend! Have a blessed Easter!
