I am trying really hard here to think of something totally inspiring to say. But all I can think about is how I had this totally rotten day, and how I really need to do something to cheer myself up, but I don't know what to do- maybe I'll cruise around CuteOverload.com for a while- I dunno. And hey! my blog reader says that Gen is giving aways something in a box!

It's a red box!

and i'm totally psyched because red is totally my favorite color. Right behind teal green and orange.

but anyway, as I said, I'm looking for something inspiring to say and I can't think of anything. And I want to post something but I'm afraid to be the first poster because everyone knows that the first poster never wins (ahem. cough. yes, that was cheesey.) but if I don't post than maybe everyone will be afraid to post and so no one will post and then no one would win!

and that would be sad.

So instead of I'll share a link to a picture I took of my son asking me why he can't run through the sprinklers with all of his clothes on.

it may not be inspiring, but it sure is... uh.. interesting.

love it. oh i want that book oh so badly.

something wonderful to share...

my hubby just asked our 3 year old little girl what she wants to do when she grows up...and she replied, "i'm just going to stay this way for awhile daddy" and he said like what? "i'm just going to stay little"

how sweet is that?

for two months now i have been getting up at 5am and getting to the gym (long before kids i did this monday-friday) some of the same people who were there 4 years ago are still there! but yesterday was a sad day at the gym, there is a guy, bob, who won't be back for a few months, he has prostate cancer and is starting treatment today. when he left he gave us all a hug and said he hoped to see us all again. i started to cry! prostate cancer is very curable i guess but it still made me sad. this is why i like going to the gym so early in the morning

you never know how you will be touched by someone.

EliseBlaha said...

inspiring.
hmm, inspiring is etsy.
the entire site.
inspiring is that you guys made a book.

ania said...

Lol..you know..I LOVE that photo....such a cool angle :)

Inspirational? Hmm...I love this photoblog but thats because I'm so into photography these days...

And while we're on the photosubject, I love the "trash the dress" concept -- hope to be able to do one of those someday....when I'm thinner so I can get into my dress again haha..

Cheers!

mel said...

Hmm, worldly, inspirational, brilliant, fascinating? Now that’s a tall order. Not one I’m sure I can fulfill so early in the morn. All I know is that I’m so excited about this book!!! (And oh yeah. Jaxon, puhleeeeze pick me!)

darl_jo said...

love is sending you children out the front door in the morning, and then waiting for them in the afternoon and feeling even happier to see them come home than when you sent them away.

Valerie said...

Congrats on the book! Looking forward to seeing it IRL. As for inspo, your blog is very inspiring.

Karen O said...

I find inspiration in lots and lots of blogs, magazines, and my childrens' eyes

Stacy said...

Here's some inspiration... mega millions is over $300 million. That would buy a lot of scrap supplies, vacations to make memories, a housekeeper, and a chef... so there'd be more time for making memories and scrapping. Ahhh... a girl can dream anyway.

jenjock1 said...

I'm pretty uninspirational.
BUT.
I am REAL happy for you guys. XOXO.

Anart Island Studio said...

Lauren said...

I lurk on all of your blogs on a much more regular basis than I am willing to admit, but it has been so cool to see all of you succeed, and wath your excitment as the books arrive at your doorsteps. Just too cool!

Mandy said...

Uhm... i think i need that blurry red treasure in the front of the pic for inspiration on this one ;-)

graphics_girl said...

Inspiration....that book. That's my inspiration.

Anso said...

Congratulations on the book!! :)

I'm dying to see it!!!

Inspirational thought: open your eyes and see all "normal" things in a new light. Like you have never seen them before. Notice the shapes and colour combinations of something "ordinary" and let that inspire you.

I'm hoping I have some luck with me so you might pick my post. Please, please, please!! :))

Take care :)

Brenda Smith said...

I want a copy!!! I promise I'll be really nice to it and not take it for granted. I will share it with my friends (heck no I won't, get your own copy!) I will do each and every challenge (and I think pigs are going to be flying soon) and I will never go anywhere without it (more true when referring to my cell phone!) Thanks for the hardwork putting the book together, (that part is true!)

ok, giving it my best shot for the supa dupa red blurry thing (fingers crossed, bigtime).

A quote I particularly like :

"Don't dare to be different, dare to be yourself if that doesn't make you different then something is wrong." - author unknown

Anilu Magloire said...

That deserves a book, I think!

Bekka said...

Trying to think of inspiration...the best I can come up with is having time to myself late at night. I get most of my best ideas at that time!

I'm sure I can get some fresh inspiration from the book! :)

DD said...

Can't wait to see the book! You guys must be so psyched! Congrats!

Je said...

Something that inspired me this past week: the song All Good Things (Come to an End) by Nelly Furtado and Chris Martin.
It's the melody, the mix of so different artists and the lyrics. Love it.
Hope you'll like it, too.

Mara said...

love your super uber creative way that you advertised how you're giving the book away.
you're the best.
and you aren't scary.
at all.
xo.

Mara-May* said...

This spot on the web makes my stomache ache. It aches for the knowledge that they have to do this with such beauty and such brilliance. Gah.

Inspiration is my two kids and their wisdom. My 11 year old daughter made a profound statement the other day while we were at the gas station paying way too much for gas....."Mom, too bad gas wasn't sold at the Dollar Store".

Yeah, there's my inspiration!

Elizabeth said...

Something wordly maybe?!
I have been saying this a lot lately.
Never underestimate kids for they have the power to amaze you.

As for the book, I know that will amaze me too :)

Ólöf said...

Susan said...

Very exciting! Can't wait to see the book!

Beth Warren said...

Am I too late to enter? ;) My 'brilliant' advice - everyone looking for a dog should get a boxer because they are the best. We just lost ours in Aug, and were just trying to pick out a puppy last night (without much success because they were all soo cute, we have to go back).
