I'm A "Loyal Commenter"!!

My friend Tara over at "Keeping Up With The Kelly's" awarded me a "Loyal Commenter" award! Reading her sweet post made me tear up a little...which is fairly common, but I was super touched. Tara is a special IRL friend. (You can hop over to her blog to find out how we met many moons ago) I enjoy reading her blog and staying in touch via the word wide web, which is my primary form of communication these days!! Tara's comment about always finding "truth and honesty" on my blog made me laugh. Maybe I should write a post about trying to decide on whether or not to explore permanent birth control for me or Big Daddy just to keep it real!! I was also touched by her loyal blog followers that hopped over to leave a comment. (And just to answer TMM's question, of course I made my own wreath!!)

Now, about my day and why I'm just now finding out about the award.

I spent the ENTIRE day away from home...a rarity for me! I left with the little girls around 8:30 this morning to meet the big girls (a.k.a. my mom & sister) for a little antique shopping at a nearby antiques festival. We walked and talked and didn't buy a thing...except my mom did buy us drinks! I wore Baby Ellie and my mom and sister took turns pushing The Muffin in her stroller. Afterward, we had lunch (at Sir Pizza, Tara) and then sat around my mom's and talked. We decided to sort of combine our food and just cook dinner together. I called Big Daddy so he met us at my mom's to eat. We returned home around 7:30 and I washed a load of diapers, a load of clothes a sink full of dishes, put both girls to bed and decided to check my email and my favorite blogs.

So, that's what I've been up to today.

Thanks for the award, Tara, but most of all for being a great friend!!

Glad you saw it. I left for the beach early Friday morning and have been without internet until just now (*Gasp*)! I feel like I've been away forever!
