Friday Random Thoughts..

 

 

1.  This week I won two three blog giveaways!  Am I lucky or what.  I won an UNO game on Sunday from Tidy Mom and I won these workout towels from Unexperienced Mom.  And I won a gift card to EcoStore USA from Sticky Feet. I can't believe that I won!  I guess it is possible!  I enter these giveaways from time to time because, heck, why not.  I think it would be fun to give things away...and my blog is expanding...maybe someday I can reward a reader with a little treat!  But I am pretty sure I need to get my numbers up before they come a knocking.

2.  Today my boys and I leave on a road trip!  6 Hours, just me and my boys....could make for a long day.  But we've done it before and we'll survive and thrive!  I know Ed misses us when we are away - but I also hope he can put that 'missing' feeling aside and enjoy the quiet freedom.

3.  I get to see my little nephew this weekend.  He is crawling and can do "soooo big!"  I can't wait to witness it in person!  I also get to meet Jack (a friend's new little guy).  And of course time with my sister and mom is always AWESOME!  Oh, and I am going to see my cousin in a play - I hear she is the STAR even though she doesn't have the actual lead.  I. can. not. wait.

4.  Yesterday was Henry's last class of his session at the school where he stays attached to my leg.  And of course, today he played, smiled, engaged with other kids and the teacher.  Isn't that how it goes...

5.  So ski lessons are done for the season...today I signed Charley up for golf lessons - that shouldn't cause me to have sleepless nights...

6.  I have fallen off the workout horse...but when I return from my parents I am getting back on.  

7.  Henry skipped his nap on Thursday and Thursday night was exhausting trying to get him to calm down for bed.  He didn't know what he wanted and he couldn't calm himself down.  Poor guy - I just wanted to explain to him that there is a reason that mama makes him nap.  I didn't get very far with that explanation.  It made me appreciate how smooth bedtime/naptime normally goes in our house.

8.  I have emailed back and forth with new blog friends who comment on my blog.  I follow their blogs...   One of my new blog friends shared that she is pregnant!  So fun to share in her joy - she hasn't even told her family yet!  Honored!

9.  Which reminds me...if you have a blog profile and like to comment on blogs...make sure you have it set up that your email is included in your profile.  By doing this the blog you comment on can reply back to your comment.  It is so fun to get a reply back about your comment.  And most bloggers want to respond to your comments because we appreciate them.

10.  I have a head cold.  I am about to get in our van with my two little boys and trek 6 hours to my parents house.  Am I crazy?  Maybe.  Movies and snacks will hopefully get us there.  Wish me luck....wish them luck.

11.  What to do about my blog design.  I love the black but I get that it is hard to read.  I also love playing around with it...so I am guessing there will be some changes in the near future.  We'll see.

Kelly said...

I heart you new friend!!!

The Crazy Coxes said...

Congrats on your winnings!! Good luck on the road trip. Once you get there, it will be fun.

I love your ski lessons/golf lessons comments. Boys cause sleepless nights your entire life. Sorry. :) Boys ROCK though! They are the best!

Enjoy your weekend!

The Gardiner Family said...

Safe Travels! I know your sweet boys will do well in the van and you will have a wonderful visit!

Crystal said...

wow, congrats on your winnings! loved reading about charley skiing - socool! it's hard to watch them grow up so fast, my little guy is only 3 and i already struggle with him doing "big boy" things. enjoy your weekend road trip!

Crystal said...

(there is supposed to be a space between so and cool. not that you wouldn't figure that out, but the teenagers are coming up with all sorts of weird words and abbreviations these days, so i thought i'd clarify!)

Have a fantastic trip!

I too wish every commenter would have a linked email so I could respond. I tried to reply to a couple of comments this week only to realize the address was a no-reply@blogger.com one :(

Messy Mommy said...

I finally gave in and ordered a custom blog design. I just won my first giveaway the other day for a Rainbow Brite CD. I touched on the no-reply thing to. I can't believe how many people haven't changed that!

Hope y'all have a great trip and that you feel better! I found out today that a couple of bloggy friends are preggers and my new sister in-law is pregnant. What is going on? Something must be in the water. I hope I don't get baby fever b/c after having 4 boys I want a little girl so bad! Yikes!!!

Danifred said...

Wow- big winner this week! Look at you with the prizes!

Have a safe and fun trip :)

Barb said...

They all arrived just fine, but now it's time for the boys to settle down for a cozy night's sleep and I think mom won't be far behind! It's so special that they are here.

Ellemes said...

Lucky lady your are!

6 hours! I'm impressed.

And bloggy friends? Aren't they the best? I think that will be who I tell first should the moment arrive when I'm expecting again.

Sarah, hope your drive is full of naps. So nice that you can see so much family without hopping on an airplane.
Happy travels!

I have said it before, and it will continue to be my motto: I love my blogging friends more than I love the people in my 'real' life. You all get all the good dirt before anyone in my family does.

Yeah for the winnings - and I hope the streak continues for you! Wishing you safe travels!

Terry Elisabeth said...

Bravo on the winning streak !

Beth said...

Dropping by from FF. I LOVE your blog! The quote in the upper right hand corner nearly made me cry ... in a good way (my "baby" just turned 20)! Congrats on your recent good luck! Enjoy your travels and visits with friends and family!

Yeah, the black on gray is kind of hard to read; maybe use hot pink on Fridays?! :)

Hope you made it to your destination safely and that your ride home is a breeze.

Good luck getting back on that horse! :)
