I must tell you that My Etiquette Question was answered via the Great Etquette Queen. If you haven’t read the IM post, you must. It’s a social requirement.

Update on the Blog Design Lovin’: Thank you ALL for participating. And see? Now that you’ve dropped trow here, it’s easier to comment, isn’t it? People are really very nice to fellow commentors. Aren’t we?
I’m very glad I’ve left it up to the cards because I want, roughly,


45 (written before there were those extra eleven votes. YEY for eleven more votes!) of you to win. So, uh. Thank god for the random drawing of numbers. I’ll do that sometime early this coming week so you still have time to put in your ONE vote if you’re still stalking. ::I see you.. yes you there, go ahead and speaketh your mind!::

If you haven’t found this site yet, you need to go there. Now. I’ll wait. ‘k. Are you back now? Yea. You had to stay a while and look, didn’t you? As it turns out, my BFFIRL makes one kickass domestic blog. When she starts doing somethin’ she jumps in with both feet. Gotta love that about thems there person.

Last but oh! SO NOT LEAST! We (Mama-C-Ta and Candice and I) are planning a trip to Seattle with some mommy bloggers in late Marchish. So, even if you’re not a mommy, but a Seattle-ite, throw out your fun family ideas and everyone try to make it! (Ayone else from up there?  Amy_M and Holly better get there arses here, too. And y’all over in Idaho and Utah, it aint THAT far, right? ::wink wink:: What’s driving 12 hours with toddlers? PSHAW! And All yo folk in Maryland? Get thee over here! Y’all can fly with the Mama-C!) So, did I mention about the website? No? Oh, ok.. go here and keep up with the plans. I pitty the foo that don’t show.

I pitty that foo.

  5. Sounds really fun, but I don’t know how I’d explain to the hubs that I *needed* to attend a convention in Seattle and leave our ONE MONTH OLD(!) with him.  I guess I’ll have to settle for reading the play-by-play of all the fun!

    By Charla on 2005 12 09

  6. Charla, who said you’d have to leave your one month old? Bring her!! Leave the hubs at home. Just kidding… He can come, too. wink

  19. That sounds like so much fun! I wish I could go, but I don’t know how the husband would feel if I decided I was going off to Seattle for a mini-vacation. Plus, I gotta work to pay the damn bills. Have fun though!
