A Blog Award and some ramblings...

My bloggy friend Melissa over at Shimmermeblue gave me this award! She's so great and I think you would all enjoy reading her blogs (she just started a second one called outnumbered 3 to 1).

Now I must pass this award on.

1. The winner may put the logo onto their blog

2. Put a link to the person who sent you the award.

3. Nominate 10 blogs

4. Put links to their blogs.

5. Leave a message for the nominees.

I may not get around to number 5 because well...I have work to do...and I guess while I'm at work they expect me to do some work...what a concept??? haha. So if you don't read my blog today and I gave you this award...well...you may never know it...and how much would that suck??? LOTS! That's how much.

I feel like I've rambled alot already and I haven't even started the rambling part of this post...lol.

So, the boy...what's new with him??? How about all this kid can talk about is his upcoming birthday party! I totally understand his excitement...afterall, this event only comes around once a year...BUT my child must have inherited some sort of OCD gene that skipped over me somehow. He was quite obsessive last year about what time everyone would arrive, what time we'd have cake, what time we'd do presents, etc. If I remember correctly he even wrote out a schedule lol.

This year it is much the same. Quite frankly, I don't believe the little guy has an ounce of faith that I could plan this party without him taking the reigns. Perhaps that's because I can be a bit of a scatterbrain at times...but this morning when he went on again about how we'd have to buy all the decorations and invitations I said to myself (not out loud of course) that "I wish I could fast forward and just have it be party day already".

Those of you that have been following a little while know that this obsession with the party started say around...ummm...mid-February...so it's been a long few months. Remember back then when I was trying to convince him to have the party at a bowling alley or movie theatre (less effort for me the better)??? He would have absolutely no part of it!!! But just 2 days ago he suggested we not have it at the community club and have it at one of the places I tried for months to convince him on. Sorry little buddy...the plan is set in stone and the community club is paid for!

Enough about the party...because as much as I'm sick of hearing about it...I'm sure you all are too!

One other thing...totally unrelated...

How do I get my child to agree to a haircut??? When did the 'shaggy' look come back in. Both the boyfriend and the boy have decided they want to look like hippies...great.......*insert eye roll here*

Oh and I guess I should get around to changing the background on my blog...Easter has been over for awhile now...maybe later! I really don't want to give up the cute bunnies...

I just realized I forgot to link to your blog Melissa! Sorry! I'll get to fixing that.

Bunnies are still cute!

Yes, I think shaggy can be cute sometimes. Bribe him if you want!

he made a schedule, that's so cute! Sounds like something I would have done as a kid...but now I'm an adult and I've been officially diagnosed with OCD...hmmmmmmm

so funny. And I had to laugh a little about how you mentioned you thought you were rambling way up there at the top. It FEELS like rambling when you've been working on the post for awhile {especially tracking down all those links!} but I assure you, I did not think you had rambled ONE bit! You were just getting started.

And yes, the shaggy hair IS in. It's been in for awhile around here. All of my cousins have had shaggy hair for the past couple years, and just recently they all got clean shaven again. I guess it's a phase.

Um, apparently my brain has gone to mush, b/c I can't remember what that email said that I JUST read from you. But, did you see my post about the free blog designs? There are some really cute ones when you get tired of the bunnies!

thanks so much for the award! What an honor to be in your top 10!!

Oh ya, did you like that my cheating plot to get to your #1 commenter spot!? It worked!
