Did Ya Miss Me?

Hello Friday! Holy Hell I'm so glad to see you!

My life has been a whirlwind for the past month. I have had no time and more importantly very little inspiration / motivation to write.

Here's my Friday five.

I swear you will see more of me from now on - not guaranteeing posts every day but, I have a feeling it will be more than none.


1. My friend Amy and I. So silly!

2. I did my first "voice over" work. It was for the North Dakota Association for the Education of Young Children informational video. Apparently, what usually takes people about 20 minutes to read through took me over 2 hours. I guess I forget how to read when there's a mic in front of me! Luckily it was my husband that was working on the video.

3. I was in Bismarck on Monday to advocate for our kiddos! Bill HB1422 was good. Then they went and changed it and not in a good way! Then it was passed onto the senate. We went to the senate committee meeting on Monday to share our thoughts on this bill. Right now it's a waiting game. We're emailing the committee with our thoughts on this bill. Crossing our fingers!

4. My husband raises money for prostate cancer every year through something called Bros on Broadway. It's a huge event in Fargo every February.  You may have heard of the national event called Mo-vember. The folks at the HoDo in Fargo decided to do their own event during a different month to ensure the funds raised for the American Cancer Society stay in Fargo. By participating in the event in November the funds are not guaranteed to stay in your area. So, anywho, I was interviewed by the newspaper. The topic was facial hair and how the wives and girlfriends feel about their husbands and boyfriends growing out some crazy facial hair. It was a fun article and they even included some funny photos of my husband throughout the years. **This year Bill raised the most money for the event!!**

5. When you work with children you just never know what's going to happen from day to day, so, when a little girl arrived with this bag I was a little curious. Then she proceeded to tell me that it's a present for me! Ummm... I sure hoped it wasn't something she took from her mommy's drawer. Thankfully it was a beautiful picture that she drew for me! But, seriously, you just never know.

I also got to spend a lovely evening with my bestie on Thursday night. I can't wait to tell you all about the baby shower I'm having for her this weekend - stay tuned! She's just the sweetest ever! She gave me a gift for putting on the shower. I appreciated it - in fact, I love my new leather Coach iPhone case, but, you only have your first baby girl once. I want it to be super special for her. I know she'd do the same for me.

Enjoy your weekend!
