Twilight - What have you done to my wife?

There may be an elite few of you, who have wondered where have I been?
Well, there's a long story, but the short n sweet version is - manual labor. AKA working. The last few days I've been working with a friend of mine who owns a cleaning company, & as she needed help - and I don't mind extra money, I was happy too!
Of course - that left little time for family, sleeping and blogging, so as much as I love doing this - it was the most expendable.
But - I still have some absolutely fabulous (did anyone else beside me used to watch that show? With French & Saunders?) giveaways coming up - and I mean some really GREAT companies have signed on board to  bring to you some amazing products - so stick around for that!
I'm also doing a "Be My Valentine" set of giveaways, so that will be coming up shortly.

So, this morning I woke up - and guess what I woke up too?


Fog! Can you believe that! It was so thick, I could barely see across the street form my entryway (shown in the photos) My kids asked me if there was a 'no school' day, when I asked them why they thought that, my 6 year old gave me a look, well beyond her years and imperiously said "The fog Mom?"
Even crossing our backyard to get to the busstop, I lost sight of them quickly, and it's been raining here for over a week, so every now and then I could hear "Don't leave me you guys! Where are you? Wait for me! I slipped in the mud - GROSS!"
It left me with a very fond "mom" moment that I'll never forget. Something as simple as that just makes me grateful that I am a mother to 5 wonderful, amazing, super fantastic kids, as I'm sure every mother feels when odd, seemingly nothing moments, become heartwarming.
I'd like to hear of anyone that's had one of those "to-anyone-else-it-would-seem-mundane-but-to-me-it-made-my-day" times in your life as a mom.

I wanted to quickly add a shout-out to "Jess", who won the Krishala Burchill Painting giveaway. A nice new stunning piece of artwork for her home, I'm so excited. She emailed me and told me she really really wanted to win this, so I'm happy for her! Congratulations to Jess! :D (And don't forget to enter the other giveaways I have coming up, because there are some awesome ones, that I don't want to reveal just yet ...

Also - one last thing, then I'm outta here to work on some cool 'V-Day' things to bring you, I won another giveaway (and yes, as I sit here typing, I am wearing a big cheesy grin) from 'Newly Wed, Newly Bred' (her button is on my list of Blogworthy blogs that you should check out. Anyway, it was for a ... (builds suspense) ... BLOG MAKEOVER!
So even though I taught myself some things to do concerning blogs, I now have a professional who is going to design a whole new look for me! So expect that to be appearing very soon, and I am floored! I canNOT wait! The blog designer is called "Strogirl's Blog Designs" and she has some great graphic designs gonig on over at her blog site, I highly recommend a look-see.

OH! I lied, just one more thing...
My husband came home from work today with this hilarious clip from YouTube - so if you're a Twilight fan/follower/stalker you have to watch this!!



I laughed so hard! "...refuses to sleep, reads her books all night..." LOL!
Also, as an interesting tidbit - if you look in the background of this clip - it's filmed IN MY HOME TOWN!! I live right where they filmed it, on main street (the town, not main street)- how COOL is that :D



20 reactions!:
