She also gave me a second award - I know, she's too kind!

This award also has a couple of rules:
1) Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
(Thanks, Crystal!)
2) Copy the logo and place it on your blog. (Check!)
3) Link to the person who nominated you for this award. (Check!)
4) Name seven things about yourself that people may not know. (Done!)
5) Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers (See below...)
6) Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate. (Ditto...)
7) Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they've been nominated. (Umm, see below...)

Seven things about me... Hmmm....
1) I love bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers - especially cold, leftover ones. They are delicious - and you can't dispute it unless you try them yourself!
2) I can never answer those "answer in one word" quizzes with just one word.
3) I am so talented that I sprained a non-moveable joint in my foot last year.
4) I don't eat peanut butter (my former favorite food!) since my daughter is allergic to peanuts. I ate a peanut butter cup come day when she was at preschool. It tasted awful.
5) If my husband wasn't technology-oriented, I would probably not even have a home computer.
6) I resisted getting a cell phone for the first few years of our marriage, even though he had one, until he started a long daily commute to work. Now I don't know how I'd live without it.
7) If I had to pick one favorite food, it would be a toss up between french fries, crab cakes, and General Tso's chicken.

If you are a regular around here, you know that I haven't been posting lately. I've been reading blogs when I can; commenting if I have time. And, Miss M has been sick for several days now with what is most likely the flu. Life is crazy right now. So, I want to award any blogger who is still reading and commenting here! Every time you comment, I stop by your blog to see what's going on in your part of the world. (More often when life isn't so hectic!) Each blog I visit is charming and special in it's own way, and I enjoy reading what you feel is important enough to be documented... celebrated... shared. Thank you for stopping by to see what's blog-worthy around here. And, please, don't be shy about picking up an award for yourself! Let me know, so I can stop by and see you sometime!

Sweet success

I washed a set of iPod earbuds last week. In the washing machine. Using a tip I probably read about online, I put my waterlogged techno gadget into the refrigerator to dry out slloowwlly.
Currently rocking out (well, not really rocking...) to one of my custom stations on Pandora. On the inside I'm doing my own little happy dance. Sometimes, it's the little things....

Done! (Also, Overheard #22)

Just finished up at the grocery store and Miss M says,"Mission accomplished!" Where does she learn this stuff?

Guess where...

We made a last-minute decision to go to the fair this evening. The kids were excited about the rides, and are big enough now to ride a few on their own. (I know! And try as I might, I can't stop them from getting bigger!) The weather was absolutely perfect - cool, with a slight breeze - enough to make it start to feel like fall (my favorite season).
It was a much-needed break from the day-to-day, and we had a ball!

Using your head @ soccer practice

They were allowed to use their elbows, their knees, their noses, their heads.... Anything but their hands! I thought it was a fun (and funny!) way to emphasize the 'no hands' rule. The kids got pretty creative!
