I've got some friends who are celebrating some exciting moments today.
First, go visit John and Steve over here, and you can enter a contest celebrating some great news. New parents can enter to win oodles of cool, cool stuff. Oh, and if you mention my name, you'll get some additional entries.
Also, my friend Elise has a lovely post about The President's speech to kids. Frankly, I loved it- and I'm happy that someone else did as well.
My friend Barrie has a new YA book out - go check out the cover!!
And this is the time I beg shamelessly for some votes over at the blogger's choice awards.
I don't like to be competitive, but I wasn't a collegiate gymnast for nothin' people. I know most of you voted, and it takes a bit of time to register (four or five minutes) but I would appreciate it. I wish I had some cool prizes to offer (like the other blogs who are now in the lead) but all I've got left from all the swag I managed to snag from BlogHer are some reuseable grocery bags (about 10 of them), some key chains, flash drives, fake nails and eyelashes and a couple DVD's about photography.
So, if you visit these friends, manage a vote or two for me and want ANY of these items, feel free to let me know. I'll zip you out a package. or two.
Now, I am going to go gloat about the fact that Sassy scored the WINNING GOAL in her varsity field hockey game in OVERTIME last night. I am still walking on cloud nine as a proud mama- and will never forget the look of joy on her face as she leapt a HUNDRED FEET IN THE AIR after the goal.
I have a feeling last night will be one of the top ten moments in my life. whew.
