A Surprising Day-Thank you

Today started out as an ordinary day around here. I woke up with my little guy asking if it was time to hop in our bed for a morning snuggle, I love these days. On Wednesdays my hubby doesn't start teaching until mid morning, so we have a little extra family time together before Daddy gets to do school drop off.

I didn't get up early and work out this morning due to our treadmill not working, when you're running it speeds up and then completely shuts off abruptly after 5 minutes. Ouch! So anyway, slightly different but still pretty normal day. After Daddy & my little guy left, we got busy with our usual playing, reading, eating, etc. Then came nap time. I took a few minutes to catch up on some emails and link up to some parties. My ritual is, browse the links, open a gazillion tabs and get back to them later when I get a minute. I get linked up to today's parties, as I do everyday, and I found it to be kind of a quieter day in blog land, not many emails not too many link ups yet, just quiet. Got on with my housework and the day.

Later on, I get a message. I'm over the moon just from this message, and then I get another and then...another. WHAT IS GOING ON??? In one day, somehow, my ideas were being featured in THREE separate places, how am I even writing this? This blew my mind! Quick, pinch me!

I started blogging in December 2011 to share my ideas and hopefully, maybe, give someone an idea or tip that they could find helpful. I can't express how much I LOVE being a mom, and I thought maybe through blogging, I could share my own ideas, experiences, joys & trials, with all these other great moms. Also, I wanted somewhere I could just gush about my kids & my hubby, no rules, no guidelines, just whatever I wanted to put out there. Never in a million years would I have imagined that I would receive acknowledgment for doing just that.

So, with all that said, just saying thank you doesn't seem like big enough words.

But I hope it will do. I really appreciate EVERY reader for visiting, following, participating, commenting and sharing.

I want to send a HUGE thank you to the three amazing bloggers/women, that featured me today:

Kristyn from Lil' Luna -THANK YOU!

  4. You deserve it. I just joined linky followers tonight. It actually levels the playing field because everyone is trying to get followers through it. I found that sites are having linky blog hops just to gain followers this way. There was a tutorial through stuff and nonsenses blog. She's one of my linky followers. You definitely should join. Let me know if you do.
