So really its blog lift in progress. I started last night but it got to late....I am going to add a few more bells and whistles, but basically this is it....do you love my header? Is it horrible that I do and I am not ashamed to say it?! I am so happy with the lastest changes, I needed to refresh a bit.
My new bloggy buddy, Tina at Life's A Journey has blessed me with this fabulous award
Thank you Tina!!! I love that Tina awarded this to some of her new friends...what a sweet idea. I will pass it on...but not just yet...awards deserve to be awarded in a post all their own...no?
So time to play with MamaKat and friends again....I totally chickened out last week as nothing came to me easily...and well...I just didn't want to write...but here we go, time for another fun and lovely (I hope) weekly writing assignment.
The prompt I am choosing:
2.) Other than the birth of a child or your wedding, write about a joyous moment.
It had sat for months, lifeless but beautiful. I tried to hide my longing, but I couldn't keep my gaze from it everytime we passed. We had talked about it, discussed at length the color and where we would keep it. It was purchased as a gift for my 30th birthday, and then it all came down to my loving hubby. He had to work his magic to make her purr, he was the one that would be doing all the work, his blood sweat and tears would be poured into this project, for me.
It took him longer than we thought to get it running, but I'll never forget that day, fully functional and ready to go, I think maybe I even shook a little with anticipation....never again would I have to wash dishes by hand.
(alright...give me a break, I have a husband and two boys a new dishwasher is exciting....this was a very joyous occasion for me!! It ranks right up there with new washer and dryer and my dyson vacuum!!)
OK....two prompts for me this week....
4.) Share the best picture you took last month and explain why it's your favorite.
This one is just too easy and fun to not do...plus it totally goes along with my "every post should have a baby in it" policy.
I swear this has everything to do with the boys in the picture and nothing to do with the fact that I put the train tracks together for him. Its not like I have more fun putting the train together than he does....He does love it, this was Christmas day - post nap - so it was peaceful and fun. The littlest guy was still asleep so we were able to show Tommy exactly what his new train set could do.
And out of fairness....
This is typical Daddy and Jack - I am very proud to say I caught this on the second try. I am also very proud to say Daddy caught Jack on the first try!!
So with that I must bid you adieu....it is time to get ready for work, Happy Thursday!!!
