Woo-hoo! There will be celebrating in Nashville! Someone asked me if I'd been snoopy dancing all day yesterday. Since I'm dance impaired, my snoopy dance looks much more like Walk Like an Egyptian, LOL.

Helen Brenna said...

Woohoo, is right! I can't dance either, Kylie, so we can Egyptian walk together.

Man, I woke up at 2am and couldn't get back to sleep my mind was buzzing. NOW I'm looking forward to Nashville.

Paula R said...

Peace and love,
Paula R.

Betina Krahn said...

WooHoo!! I'm so happy for all the riders and for the great books we produce! And Christie-- how did you survive TWO phone calls in the same day? Wow-- I'm just so humbled and so happy. Can't wait to see you all in Nashville and give you great big hugs!

Christie Ridgway said...

Thanks and congrats to everyone! I was awake at 4 a.m., Helen. Then I had a dream where I had to go to the conference AND give a bridal shower at my aunt's house at the same time. I couldn't remember the menu and everything was topsy turvy as they were putting away Christmas decorations.

What was up with that? LOL.

Kathleen Eagle said...

Oh, yeah. Riders rock 'n write. Congratulation girlfriends! It's been a while since I've made the finals, so I'm rockin' on.
