Seriously? Since I posted about the giveaway yesterday afternoon, a whole bunch of you guys have become followers.
Da-huuude. I had no idea there were that many of y’all out there. Silently lurking.
And now the tables are turned. I get to sneak a peek into your lives. And I am diggin’ it.
It’s been ridiculously fun to check y’all out, read your comments, visit your blogs, see your profile pictures. Or in some cases just that strange little happy face that google uses in the place of a picture. Which is really sort of eerie.
Anyway, it’s been quite the treat to get to ‘know’ some of you guys that have been following along, without officially ‘following’. It’s made this bloggy birthday quite the celebration.
Well, that, and the cookie dough I scarfed down this afternoon.
Instead of celebrating properly, as I’d hoped, my ‘consumption of something decadent’ turned into hastily downed sugar cookie dough I found in the condiment shelf of the fridge. And, because I highly doubt my husband will be walking through the door tonight with a Macaroni Grill Turtle Cheesecake, that’ll have to do.
And my kids don’t seem to comprehend fully that today is a special day, either.
For example, this conversation that occurred this morning at the breakfast table with all the littles…
Shepherd: “Mom, did you make that big nose by yourself?”
Me: “What? I have a big nose?”
Jude: “Mama didn’t make her nose. God did. And God made it just the right size. BIG! Right mama?”
Me: “I have a big nose?”
Sophie, detecting my downward spiral: “It’s not big, mom. It’s L-A-R-G-E.” … stopping to think… “It’s large AND big.”
Me (to self): “Is there any cookie dough hidden in the condiment shelf of the fridge?”
But in spite of my evidently large proboscis, and really because of all y’all, today has been a true celebration. This day that marks four-years of Ni Hao Y’all.
So thank you. Wish you could have been standing here in my kitchen with me to stop me from raiding the fridge. Then my jeans would thank you, too.
