I can't believe I'm really doing this...

I have been secretly dreaming about starting my own blog for months now. One day I stumbled upon one of the best blogs on the web by searching for a cake pop recipe. (It was for my oldest daughter's end of season lacrosse party.) I typed in "cake pop recipe" in what other search engine but Google and up popped http://www.littlemissmomma.com/. Right away I was like a kid in a candy shop. My eyes were darting all around to take in everything on the page. I told myself to focus and get to work on the cake pops (you'll find as you read this blog and get to know me that I am either over focused or all over the place...there really is no "in the middle"). I followed the tutorial and they were so yummy!! (Not nearly as beautiful as the ones shown in the tutorial but what 9 year old girl is going to scoff at a cake pop, even if it is a bit messy?!) But guess what happened next?! As soon as they were all packaged for delivery to the party I found myself logging back on to the website. I decided to start from the beginning (where else, right?) and find out who Little Miss Momma was. Within just a few readings I found myself laughing out loud, crying, agreeing with shared thoughts, wishing I was as cute & crafty and thinking, "Geez, why can't Ashley live in my town? I want to run into her at her local farmer's market and start hanging out." I have been reading her blog every day since. I know all kinds of things about her and her family and she doesn't even know I exist. I have never once commented on her blog. Why? I'm not sure but today I decided to follow in her footsteps and join the ranks of all of you bloggers. I also plan on making my first comment on her blog today. I know...crazy, right?! I'm sure this doesn't seem like a big deal to most of you but I am a pretty private person. To share my thoughts, my feelings, my life...well, its a pretty big deal to me. Hence the reason it has taken me so long to start this. So, I'm just going to rip the band-aid off. Here goes...

One of my close friends sent me a text in the early afternoon today to tell me that she was still in her pajamas. Now, this friend is usually up with the roosters that crow just as the sun is rising (really she's up because her kids are up and louder than the roosters but you get my drift). She is also usually dressed by 7:00am in the cutest, most stylish outfits. She is normally out the door by 9:00am on some errand turned adventure with her kids. Do you know what my reply was to her? I texted, "I love it!!! Sounds like the perfect day to me!!!"

I can't even keep track of how many PJ days I have had! They have grown wildly in number since the birth of my first daugther 9 & 1/2 years ago. PJ days are the best...You can lounge around and read books snuggled up with your little ones on the couch/bed. You can get down on the floor and play with your little ones/pets without your low rise jean button digging into your lower abdomen. You can eat a sugary bowl of cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner because lets face it...nothing tastes better than cereal when you are in your PJs. You can catch up on all of your favorite shows on On Demand and ones that you have DVR'd. You can call up a friend and chit chat like you did when you were in high school (yes, I mean late at night when your parents said no more phone calls but you snuck them anyway) and feel young again with the phone on your ear, your back on the seat cushions and your legs up on the back of your most comfy couch. PJ Day ROCKS!!!

When was your last PJ day and what did you do?

Wow! Little Miss Momma visited my blog! I am ever so thankful and so excited! If you haven't clicked on her link, please do to find out what started all of this... Ashley is beautiful on the inside and out and she has a great sense of humor! Also, she is quite crafty. Check out her tutorials and her Etsy shop.
Soooo excited!!!!

My sister usually calls by 8 so I think.....time to get going, run errands, cut the grass,.... so I do. Not today!!! I will sit here at my computer making a syllabus while drinking a cup of coffee :) Nice job on the blog, Kristen. A+
