ten on tuesday.

1. I have a sink and counter full of dishes to be washed. Which makes it a perfect time to post a Ten on Tuesday. =)

2. The Great Stomach Virus of 2010 has finally left our house (crossing fingers) leaving a trail of half-empty bottles of Gatorade and Gingerale in its wake. Good riddance.

3. For the record I have a less appropriate name for the GSV of 2010 but this is a family blog afterall. Or something.

4. I have a little folder in my sidebar where I store fun websites that I think you all would enjoy in a ToT post. And I found three this week! First, I was reading my friend Colleen’s blog when I came across this website called IFoundYourCamera. It’s a clever little site where people who have found cameras can post images in hopes of finding the camera’s original owner. It satisfies my voyeuristic tendencies (I love seeing what other people are photographing!) and my love for a happy ending when the orphan picture owners are found. So cool!

5. The second site that caught my eye this week was DarnYouAutoCorrect.com. Okay, so that’s not really what it’s called but this is still a family blog. Or something. Anyway, it’s funny. I have no idea how they get their material or if it’s even real but it cracks me up. (And by the way, if you’re not comfortable with the harsher version of “darn” then don’t click on that link. Just a friendly warning.)

6. Finally in the world of fabulous links I was blown away by my friend Amanda’s (of kevinandamanda.com…I just love saying that) awesome post “9 Quick Steps to a Better Blog Experience.” So informative. So helpful. I’m so not living up to her high standards here at ThePigbear but the girl knows her stuff! As an added bonus, she’s really, really nice.

7. Did you see our little Thank You video over at the The Creative Mama this week? I had so much fun “meeting” the other mamas via webcam!

8. Sarah said two things tonight that made me want to slap myself for the phrases I might possibly let slip out of my mouth. First, as a client was pulling away from my house (but still within earshot) she demands to know, “who the heck was that?!” (Gulp). Then, not 5 minutes later, she ended a conversation she was having with me with “whatev.” If I don’t check myself she’ll be using “prolly” next.

9. My turkey is brining as I type. I’ve used Cooking Light’s Apple Cider Brined Turkey recipe for the last 10 years. That makes me feel simultaneously very, very old and very, very accomplished.

10. Boo. The dishes haven’t moved. I guess that’s my cue.

I have a sink full of dishes too…why haven’t they moved? And WOW! I graduated with a girl that found here camera on IFoundYourCamera.net How crazy is that?!

I’m not sure about all of the auto correct posts, but my friend submitted one when she texted someone that she was coming over to give them HIV. It was supposed to be a hug. They did PS out the “a”, so that it just read HIV instead of a HIV. ANYWAY! Ha. Love your blog, love your photography, love your kids, and then funny things they say!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am laughing hysterically at the darnyouautocorrect.com. Serioiusly. My 3 year old daughter just came up to me and said “Molly, why you laughing?” with a strange, concerned look on her face.
I promise I have gotten a lot of wonderful, uplifting, meaningful things from your blog. But this is hysterical.
