Misc. Awesomeness... and yuck.

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

TOTAL Awesomeness - I got over 1,000 hits on my blog this week for the first time :) whoot whoot!

Awesome - my birthday! I turned 27 on Thursday and as a surprise Daniel gave me a Bamboo touch pad & pen with a copy of Adobe Elements 7 - yayyyy!

Amazingly Awesome - my birthday cake. Josiah and I made a cookie cake with 2 Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie mix sprinkled with butterscotch and white chocolate chips baked in a 9x13 and then drizzled with melted chocolate, white chocolate & butterscotch chips - total awesomeness.

Also Awesome - brownie cupcakes. Need I say more? They were amazingly tasty.

NOT Awesome - I had to pick up Katie-Abigail early from school because she'd thrown up at school - all over her mat and in her hair. ick. sticky icky ick. She felt better as soon as we got home. That was weird.

Awesome - spending Saturday at our friend's lake house.

NOT Awesome - I forgot to bring my camera. bummer. Katie-Abigail spent most of the day on the beach collecting shells and I so wanted to photograph that moment.

NOT Awesome - Josiah was up at 11 last night throwing up. Awesome - he didn't get much of it on the bed because he threw up all over me. NOT Awesome - getting thrown up on by your almost 3 year old. Awesome - Daniel cleaned up the mess while I cleaned up my son.  Awesome - Josiah and I had a sweet moment to cuddle in the quiet of the night. NOT Awesome - Josiah woke up every two hours asking for a drink of water. Awesome - Josiah slept in a little bit! NOT Awesome - Josiah is super-cranky this morning from being awake nearly half the night. Awesome - I get to stay home with my little man. I'm so thankful to be a stay at home mom today!
