SWEET CHEEKS BILLBOARD GOES UP

THERE SHE IS!
Remember my post
about our own
Little Miss Broadway?
You can read about it here.
And she was a live model
in a Broadway window here.
AND NOW....
Well, here she is!
Her face greets everyone
that is driving East on 
Mason Street in Green Bay.
I was driving home after
running errands when
my daughter called me.
Look Mom!
Look straight ahead!
I see it!
I see it!
I see it!
I am really close now!
The billboard is right
across from 
Happy Joe's Pizza Parlor.

I am smiling from ear to ear
and everyday I make sure
I go that way at least once.
Oh-Come On...
You would do the same thing.
Happy Sunday!!!

Hi Diana, Beautiful, awesome, and I am like one of your previous post. I would have my picture under it and take it with me wherever I went to show her off. All grandparents are proud of their grandchildren. I know I was several years ago when my youngest was the premie for the March of Dimes Campaign and on tv. We love them to pieces and I can see Sweetcheeks smiling ear to ear when you talk about her. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend
P.S. Christmas shopping done.

Tete said...

;)- that must be the best feeling in the whole world, just driving by that sign. Or would it be being her biggest fan? Hmmm.
I think the billboard came out great, not just her photo but the whole dern layout. Awesome. Hope you are feeling better today and got some rest last night. You know you may be getting too old for all this excitement!

How thrilling it must be to see SweetCheeks larger than life! I am so excited! I bet you were more than tempted to camp out beneath the billboard in a sleeping bag, weren't you, Diana? What does SC think of all the excitement?

Ruth Kelly said...

Of course you are smiling. It is simply thrilling to see her on a billboard. I am happy for you.

Smiling from ear to ear and beyond.
