I Prefer to Think of it as Fashionably Late

Yesterday was actually the day I was supposed to link up with Emmy for her "10 things to smile about", but I had to announce the finalists, so I'm late.  Perhaps I will throw in an 11th thing to make up for it?  We'll see...

Finding out the Sissy is well above her grade level in Reading, and "catches on quickly" to every subject.  I think she got that from me...or Roon.  It's definitely one of the two!
I have really learned a lot about sports since I got married.  Why?  Because it makes Roon happy.  Plus, it makes me happy to see Bubble and Bug get into the excitement, even if it only lasts about 5 minutes into the first quarter. 
The return of our favorite shows!  Roon and I spent all summer watching Doogie Howser M.D. on DVD so it's a little odd to see him again as "Barney", but it still makes me smile.  Yes, I realize it's pathetic that fictitious people made my list.  Let's move on...
I recently contacted a custom illustrator to help give my vinyl website a bit of a facelift.  HE WAS AMAZING!  Very professional, fairly priced, and it only took him about a week to take something I had dreamed up in my head, and make it a reality.  This is only a fraction of the overall picture, but it turned out PERFECT.  If you need a custom illustration, please contact him.  Every time I look at it...I smile.

Yet another successful swap!  Most of my goodies are gone, but the new friend I made, is most certainly NOT gone.  New friends always make me smile...

The overwhelming support I had in making my new party a success makes me grin from ear to ear.  I hope the enthusiasm continues for many months to come.  Speaking of which...have you voted yet?  Do it NOW.  You can even vote for more than one person.  Check out the projects.  They're awesome.

When Roon was in Florida for a week, he found these shirts, and bought them to serve as souveniers for the kids.  Truth be told, they were more for me.  I laugh every time I see them!

Not being forgotten when my mom went to Forks (again) without me.  We may be on different teams as far as Twilight goes, but she'll still shell out money on Jacob paraphernalia because she knows it will make me smile.  And it did.  It really did!
These guys moved closer to me!  Still not CLOSE...they live about 6 hours away, but it's a heck of a lot better than before!  I love my nephews!
A completely amazing and out of the blue package arrived at my door from an incredible friend.  It was a "thank you" for something I did...but I think I got the better end of the deal.  I'm STILL smiling, and I opened it like 4 hours ago.  I know many of you won't get the reference, but she's like the Wally Kessler to my Harold Green. 

What 10 things do YOU have to smile about this month?

Better late then never, thanks so much for linking up :)

That vinyl picture is great. And you had a good mail month.

Love the shirts! I would love if I could get mine to wear them...well Rhiannon at least, Layla would wear anything I put her in

Kim said...

Looks like you had a fun month! I stopped by to vote for Emmy's Video!

Bahahaha! It took me a minute to figure out the Wally Kessler reference (that sounds so familiar...but why?). Joe had to help me out.

Hee hee! I'll be your Wally anytime. ;)

I can't wait to see your new look! And I made your happy list? I am so flattered!

My husband and his 2 brothers bought these shirts and put them on during his parents 40th wedding anniversary party, it was quite the hit.

Your nephews eyes are stunning, I think I want him cuz, you know I always wanted a boy!

I know you're gonna make fun of me but...who is Wally & Harold?
