And today? Well.. today I am thankful for beer. And good friends who invite me to us to join them in the drinking of it. Hooray for Friday night plans!
Unfortunately, now that I've sat down to babble, nothing comes to mind. Perhaps it's the fact that the three year old who thinks she runs this house just woke up from her nap and is screaming at me because she is already being sent back to her room for bad behavior. Or the fact that I need to go change another poopy diaper because the almost one year old thinks it's time to unload lol
Either way.. I will leave you with this and call it a day (as I wait for my sitter to get here so I can go blow off some steam with some friends)...

Since I haven't done any blogging as of late (posting or reading), I've missed oodles of awesome Halloweeny things. Bummer. The cool thing about blogging is that I can still go back and see what I've missed. Yay! So yeah, that's what I'm up to.
Check out this awesome video of a girl transforming herself into a pretty kick@$$ lion.. amazing! I totally wanna try it! And the same girl did this one on how to make a fabulous black eye, which I totally want to make my costume for next year. Such a simple idea with alot of PUNCH! haha - get it? black eye? punch? yeah.. ok.. I won't quit my day job ;) Ok.. off to check out what else I missed. Hopefully this entire month's blog posts won't be about last month's festivities, but if they are.. oh well - that's the beauty of owning your own lil piece of the interwebs haha

This year I decided to post this on my blog for two reasons..
#1 Let's be honest.. my blog is growing some serious cobwebs, so this lil project combined with NaBloPoMo outta help get things moving again.
#2 I'd really like a record of these small (or big) things that I recognize along the way.. thinking it will be a great reference for those days in the future that things might not seem so sunny, ya know?
Anyway, today I am thankful for my incredibly supportive friends and family. Without all of these amazing people, I am certain that I would not be surviving some current difficulties as well as I am, or just at all. You all know who you are.. thank you for everything you are doing/have done recently to help me. I love you and appreciate you more than you will ever know.
If you don't have your own blog, or don't feel like publicly participating in the 30 Days of Thanks, feel free to leave your thankful thoughts in the comments section here. I'm channeling the power of positive thinking and I believe in strength in numbers :o)
See you all tomorrow!
Today starts the first of 30 straight days of posts from me!
See - I told you this was exciting :)
Not feelin' it? Well.. too bad, cuz imma try my best to keep up. And if I slack, you can check out some friends' blogs who I'm sure will do a much better job than I at following the every day posting rules lol.... Hillary, Kristen, Jeanne (maybe?).. I know there are others. Heck, google NaBloPoMo and let me know if you find anything good out there on the interwebs. I could use some extra material anyway. Heh. And if you are reading this and are participating, leave me a comment so I can add you to my list of blogs to stalk---err---read this month :)
Today is just an intro to the event, so I'll leave it at that and save the updates and mindless jibberish for another day, ok? KThxBye!

So many of you know that The Hubs and I got our first tattoos together awhile back (Sept ‘09)…
We had Ashlyn’s footprint from the hospital tattoo’d on the top of our foot (her left on our lefts) to symbolize our pride in how our lives have turned out together by showing that we would be proud to have our daughter follow in our footsteps. This is a big statement for us as we have both faced our fair share of criticism over some of the choices we’ve made over the years.
Of course, when we announced our pregnancy with Cooper, many asked if we are going to get his footprint done on our other foot. And our answer is YES! For me, this means pure excitement! For Jason? Not so much ;) See, this was our first tattoos, so we had no idea what to expect. I decided to go first and really, it just felt a little uncomfortable. I was chatting with Jason and Joel, our tattoo artist, the whole time and really was bothered very little by the pain. Jason, on the other hand, was SHOCKED when he took the chair second and felt a much greater amount of pain. I think he probably just has more nerve endings in his foot or something because it’s not like I have a high pain tolerance or anything. Anyway, this has him less than excited about getting a second done, but he’ll do it because how uncool would it be to have one of your kid’s footprint on you forever and not the other, just because you are afraid of a lil pain ;) So we had the hospital get some really good footprints of Cooper’s left foot and we can’t wait to go finish our statement!
This morning, Ashlyn pointed to my foot and said “footprint, mommy, footprint!”, so I told her about how that is her little foot and how we are going to get Cooper’s foot on the other side. She said “oh, nice” and then looked at Guinness (one of our pugs) and said “mommy.. guinness footprint”. Hmm…interesting thought, baby girl. Not quite the same statement, but interesting thought just the same :) And a quick google image search showed me that she wasn’t the first one to think of this…
I <3 it! :) Probably won’t ever do it, but I love it just the same :)
