ten on tuesday.

1. I think I missed last week’s ToT post, which is a rarity for me. You’d think I’d have a backlog of good stuff for you this week but, sadly, I don’t.

2. The stuff I do have though is really, really good. Like the “i am a photographer” collaborative project that ClickinMoms members created recently. Have you seen it? For every member submitted image, ClickinMoms will donate $1 to RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual assault organization, through March 31st. There’s still time for you to get involved.

3. You might find me in the video. I’m a little bit incognito though. 😉

4. After a months-long process I’ve finally committed to a new logo! I’m over the moon about it. I asked the designer to create something to helped me “grow up” the logo I’m using now and I think he totally hit the nail on the head. I can’t wait to show it to you guys!

5. Today is sweet little Hayden‘s 5th birthday. It’s so hard for me to believe that he entered this world five years ago today. I can so clearly remember when we found out that Amy was pregnant, then celebrating (at Sonic!) when we found out that Hayden was a boy. Samantha, Amy, and I were sitting outside enjoying an ice cream when a group of young teenage boys pulled up near us. They created a raucous (as young teenage boys often do) that ended in some sort of ridiculous yelling about body parts. It was gross. And hysterical. Samantha and I giggled uncontrollably as we teased Amy, “you’re going to have one of those!” Of course, now that we’re all the mother of boys, it seems the joke is on us. Happy Birthday sweet baby Hayden. You’re a treasure.

6. This morning I headed down to the Huntsville Times to help style our regular “Style About Town” feature for the next issue of Spark. Technically this project is Heather’s baby but she lets me along for the ride. =) One the way home I had to drop off some items we had borrowed from a local boutique and somehow I ended up buying a letterpress-inspired side table. I have no idea where it’s going – cottage or home, bedroom or family room – but it’s amazing. I wish I had a picture, but it’s similar to this Apartment Therapy feature.

7. Last week Sarah’s class celebrated the 100th day of school and I found myself smiling back on the memory of my own class of kindergartners who celebrated the 100th day each year with the appearance of Zero the Hero. Remind me to tell you that story sometime when Brent is out of ear shot. It’s involves a sequined cape, an eye mask, poetry, and a boy I love. It’s a good one.

8. Today is the last day of January and I think I’ve successfully made my New Year’s resolutions into habits. That might be a first! My 2012 blog book is well on its way and 8 Minute Abs and Arms are here to stay (although you can’t tell it from my abs OR arms!)

9. The four month cottage move-in countdown is officially on. Woot!

10. And last but not least…WE’RE HAVING A BABY TOMORROW! And by “we” I mean Heather. =) But I’m tagging along with my camera to photograph every bit of it (minus the actual c-section which the hospital won’t allow me in for. boo.) Our entire street is a-buzz with the news of baby Jude’s arrival tomorrow. And I’m going on record with my weight prediction of 6 pounds, 8 ounces. Happy Baby Jude’s Birthday Eve!

I remember the Zero the Hero – the kids thought he was REALLY COOL!!!! If they saw that now they would just roll their eyes (as all 15/16 year olds do) thanks Brett for allowing your wife to make a fool of you

I saw you, joker!!!!! 😉 You’re awesome. Can’t wait to see Jude!!!!

Enjoy tomorrow! How exciting!

It’s funny that you referred to Hayden as “Baby Hayden” because I had such an urge to text “happy birthday baby Hayden” to Amy all day! Those years are just frozen in time. :)))

PS – Now of course I have added Sonic to the list of places we will be visiting together in CA! Add it to the list of states in which I’ve dragged you there…

I remember Zero the Hero!!!!

Now you have some little song about Zero the Hero in my head, something I think I am remembering from Alla’s kindergarten – something about making all the other numbers stay in their place, is that the one? I’ll have to get her to sing it for me when she gets home:)
