Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment and to enter my recent Starbucks contest!
Well, as luck would have it, Hope is our winner! In case you missed it, here's what she says she appreciates about her friends:
This was fun to think about! I am noticing that in this season of my life it has been very important to have girlfriends who share my interests that are beyond being a mother. I have been blessed lately with becoming closer to girlfriends who share my passion for the Lord and scrapbooking. Time with these girlfriends is always encouraging and uplifting. Thanks for this post!
Congratulations, Hope! Just email your address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send your Starbucks card pronto!
Even if you didn't win, I hope you'll take time to connect with your girlfriends this week. Really good friendships are just too precious to let them slip away!
A few other items:
1.) Please notice that I am now Twittering! Please feel free to Follow! Yes, a month ago, I said I thought the whole Twitter craze was a bit pointless. But a girl's allowed to change her mind.
2.) Don't forget about the "Child Chatter" feature I started (see right-hand sidebar). I'd love to publish your kids' funny and cute quotes, so please keep 'em coming. Email me at email@example.com.
3.) Look for a new post from me tomorrow!
Hope everyone had a great 4th. I just dug out from the carnage that was my house post-festivities.
Food + swimming + Sparklers + Pop-its + 9 children + 6 adults = one messy good time and one tired mom!
A final question ... A male friend of mine told me of his great distress at being excluded from this contest. My husband chimed in and told us of a wacky case of a man bringing a class action lawsuit against the Oakland A's because they wouldn't give him a plaid reversible bucket hat as a part of their Mother's Day promotion!
So what do you think ... does my friend have a case?! ;0)
