Merrie Monday...Just Made of Awesome!!!

Mood: Excited (really, super excited!)

What I'm Watching: TMZ (have to catch up on my celeb gossip!)

Monday or not, today was just made of win. I mean like epic win!!!

First, I logged on to my Twitter account this morning to find a message from Rhonda Stapleton, super cool author of "Stupid Cupid" and all around awesome blogger, telling me I'd won her "Flirting With Disaster" contest. My prizes? A signed copy of Flirting With Disaster (which I totally wanted because I've read Stupid Cupid and can't wait to read the next installment) and, as if that weren't enough, I'm lucky enough to get a $50 gift card to the book store of my choice (Barnes and Noble in case anyone is wondering). So, I'm all totally Squeeeeeeeeee!!!!! I never win anything and this is made of nothing but amazing win!!

Then, another amazing gift in the form of my new little neice!!!! Finally, after literally a month of labor, the doctor finally conceeded and broke my sister's water. An hour later? We had a brand new addition to our family.

Happy Birthday Madelyn Sue!!! She weighed 7 lbs 2 ozs and was 18 inches long. Mom and baby are both doing well.



  1. Yay! Glad you had an epic win. It has been SUCH a long winter, huh? Whatcha gonna buy at B&N??

    Your niece is a total cutie. Congrats, proud Aunt Duh. ;-) I love that story about your nephews. It is a fun nickname. One of my nephews used to call me Aunt Whirl. Isn't that awesome? We would pretend to be in kung-fu movies when he was little. Now he's 17. Yikes.

  2. What an awesome, epic day. Congrats on winning two contests and the new addition is beautiful.

  3. Yay for you! Whatcha gonna buy, big spender?

  4. @Frankie: I'm a bit biased, but I do think she's a little bit of precious. :)

    @Laurel: Thanks!!! And yes, they still call me Aunt Duh...but I think it's so cute. It's probably going to be a sad day for me when they all finally learn to properly pronounce my name. Although I have to admit, Aunt Whirl is way cooler...and I know that they grow up way too fast.

    @Mary: Thanks!! I don't believe I've ever been so excited on a Monday. :)

    @Jmartin: That's the big question...I got the e-certificate today and now I get to shop...hmmm...I'm open to suggestions. :)


I love comments. They're like cake without the carbs.
