A Huge Thanks to Kelly!

For Kelly

Miss Kelly has again come to my rescue!

First off, she totally helped my blog out with my new look. I can't describe to you how much I am now married to my look. She just brushes off my compliments with comments like, "It's Photoshop 101, babe!" She's so humble that I can't believe that I'm friends with her!

Then she rescues me from crying my eyes out even more when she takes time out of her new life to make me a personalized cd of songs that DON'T make me cry. (Which is so much more than I can say for my daughter! That night that I was crying, Bec came up to me and put his head on my lap. I reassured him and told him that I was fine, just sad. I then saw Ivy looking into the kitchen from the doorway. I said to her, "Honey, when you see someone crying, it's ok to give them a hug to make them feel better." She looks at me for a beat, then says, "And it's ok to call them a crybaby too." Then she walked away. What a little toad!) My cd came in a totally cool card filled to the brim with tiny, sweet words. Like, "On behalf of Ivy and Bec, thanks for being an awesome mom!" Can you imagine? Every mom's dream!!

My new cd's playlist is as follows:
Let's Get It Started- Black Eyed Peas
I Will Survive- Stephanie Bentley
The Way You Make Me Feel- Michael Jackson
Put Your Records On- Corinne Bailey Rae
Let's Stay Together- Al Green
Down in Mississippi
The More I Drink-Blake Shelton
Before He Cheats- Carrie Underwood
Trouble- Bonnie McKee
Love Shack- B-52s
Everyday SuperHero- Smashmouth
New Shoes- Pablo Nutini
Gettin Jiggy Wit It- Will Smith
Sreetcorner Sympathy-Rob Thomas
Groove Me- Angie Stone
Nothing Better To Do- LeAnn Rimes
Firecracker- Josh Turner
Better Days- Goo Goo Dolls

She also included instructions to "shake your booty" and include some shoulder action while I'm "gettin' jiggy wit it". I briefly thought about videoing myself getting down to the cd, but after dancing with myself in the mirror, decided that I'd wait until I had on a cuter outfit and did my hair, just in case I become the next diva on youtube! HA!

And lastly, last night she texted me as she does often to check on me. But last night was a text of wonderful news about our friend and Super Roommate Charity. Whew!

If I wasn't already married to Chris and my blog, Kelly is next on my list!

YAY! Thank you so much for the dedication!

Today started out frustrating (Didn't have all my papers at the DMV) and got better (got all my work done). This was definitely the cherry on top for the day! :)

I'm glad I could be there for you like you were there for me! I'm so grateful for you!

Let me know which turn into your favorites. It's always fun to hear what sticks out!

Your new look rocks!! Very edgy and cool. About your daughter... :( Eventually they grow up, mature, and become sensitive to people's feelings... I think. xo
