Happy Anniversary Material Girls!!!!

Wow!  I am feeling a little teary eyed about this post, (a happy tear I might add.)  Five years ago, November 1, 2005.  I opened the doors of The Material Girls Quilts.  It was a dream come true. I couldn't have done this without my awesome hubby Tom and my 2 amazing kids Shelby and Parker. They have put up with an absentee mom, a messy house, and Tom cooking a lot of "Hamburger Helper"  I have been truly blessed with the most amazing family and friends, I love you!.  You, my customers and friends have watched me grow, cry, laugh, and have supported  me through it all.  I  wouldn't be here if it weren't for you!!  Thank you all for supporting me, and my shop!!  You are the bestest!

Dinner with Zane's parents!

Parker, Shelby and Zane before a Jazz game!
Tonight we are going to dinner with Shelby's boyfriends parents.   He is getting ready to leave next week for a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for 2 years to Bogata` Columbia. Zane has hung around our house for a few years now, but I could never call him her "boyfriend" but now I can (I know, I don't understand the whole thing either).   He is a great young man and is going to be a fantastic missionary!!  We are truly going to miss him, I get teary eyed just typing this.  He has stopped by almost all of our late sews at the shop and has seen some of the Woodraska's at their worst!  (I guess I can stop wearing the BYU t-shirt he got me!)  Zane we love you and are so proud of you!  I will probably lose weight while he is gone because every time he comes over he brings me a treat in the form of gummy savers.  Zane your the best!!
Love ya,
The Woodraska's

PS.  I have to give kudos to his mom and dad they raised a fantastic son!!
