aside from all of the annoying things that happened yesterday there were quite a few AMAZING things that occurred to trump all of the negativity!
i got a package and TWO of my friends had a baby!
ON THE SAME DAY!
first, let's talk package.
the wonderful and amazing jenn from free and flawed held a little contest a while back where she asked her readers to help name her new all things geeky blog. and guess what? she chose my submission! how cool is that? i even got a prize package!
so when i got home yesterday feeling all icky i opened my mailbox and ta-dah! a present!
i got a pedicure set (LOVE), some mint-tastic lip balm (LOVE) and an i-tunes gift card which i am going to make one banging cd out of. yippee!
jenn - seriously this made my day. thank you. also when you posted this about one of my anonymous commenters deciding to cross the line and be a hater on your blog, you also made me LOL - which i needed. you're hilarious.
now you all just have to read her new blog that little 'ol me helped to name : )
check it out ----> must love geek
now onto the babies!!!!!
my record for predicting the sex of a baby is still perfect! patti-o and her husband tony welcomed a baby girl, the beautiful rose francis, into the world yesterday. congratulations! now i only have a camera phone picture so it's kinda fuzzy but here's patti-o and baby rose.
i can't wait to meet her!
now my second friend that had a baby yesterday is my bestest friend d-ray. not too long ago i headed to "the bubble" (grosse pointe), for her baby shower and i can't believe the baby is here already! d-ray and her husband terry welcomed a baby girl - the beautiful eleanor jane!! yay!!
when i got the text that d-ray had her baby i had serious perma-smile. this is such a wonderful occasion! i'm going to be the best auntie alexa, THE BEST. and d-ray i am not going to be able to wait until august to meet ellie, how's this weekend?
i am so thankful for these two healthy new additions for my friends! congrats guys!!!!
also - i am fully aware of the redunkulous amount of exclamation points that i included in this post. sue me, i'm flippin' excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
also x2 - foxxy had the most comical comment about the baby names that just needs to be repeated. when i texted her about d-ray's arrival she replied back, "rose and eleanor, what is this 1912?". haha. foxxy darling, classic traditional names are all the rage.
