Five for Friday

1. First up, a mom moment. A couple of days ago I learned that my son took part in a school wide contest where each student had to make a Safety 1st poster. My little guy second place. There will be a ceremony for the winners and he also gets a $100 gift certificate to Barnes and Noble. I'm so proud of him!

2. I'm starting Days of Blood and Starlight today! Pretty freaking excited.

3. Thanks to all who posted their encouraging comments on Monday's post, I really appreciate the pushes you've given me to take that jump!

4. Now that my family is fully recovered from their sickness, I'm starting to feel it. Yeah, isn't that how it always works? Ugh, I just want one month where I don't have a sore throat, sinus infection, or runny nose. This winter has been a bad one for the flu and cold.

5. Today is my Baby Princess #1's birthday. I can't believe she's three! And all she wants to celebrate is a bike and a cake. We've got both covered.

Hope you guys have a delightful weekend!


  1. OOoh Days of Blood and Starlight is AWESOME enjoy.

    Yay to 2nd place!!!!

  2. Congrats to your little boy. Sounds like you have an artist on your hands. I hope you don't get the flu. The mom is always last, but maybe it will be quick. Take care of yourself.

  3. Happy birthday to your little princess AND huge congrats to your little boy - sounds like you have a lot to be proud of! :) I got over sickness myself a little while ago, and there is no blessing like being healthy. I think it's good for me to get sick sometimes so I remember that. :)

  4. Sounds like a week of celebration for your sweet family! Hope you get feeling better soon. I hate winter for all the bugs that get passed around. :/

  5. Such great stuff! Happy birthday to your princess, and congrats to your son! That's quite the prize. Do they let adults enter? ;)

  6. 2nd place and a BN giftcard? Whoohoo, he hit the jackpot :) That's awesome!! And I also hope you feel better. It really stinks to be sick.
