NaBloPoMo Craziness & Things I Am Looking Forward To... Welcome to November!

02 November 2009
So, I have "blog every day for a month" right up there at #2 on my list of things to accomplish.  {By the way click over to check my progress!} I love the idea of participating in NaBloPoMo, but it's not happening.  I'm handing over So Wonderful, So Marvelous to some fabulous friends, blogger and non-blogger alike while I'm on a much needed vacation with my best boys.  I haven't finished asking everyone yet, but I can't wait to see what craziness these girls have in store for you while I'm away!  So, you'll have to enjoy all the NaBloPoMo buzz elsewhere in the blogosphere this month and just come here for the randomness that is GUEST POSTERS!  A little NaBloPoMo secret, my favorite posts happen toward the end of the month when everyone is tired of daily posting and would rather listen to their mother-in-law tell them how to raise their children with a smile on their face than to post.  another. damn.  thing.  but they continue to post anyway and it gets funny my friends.  If you're participating, let me know in a comment!

Aside from the trip & the guest posts, here is a list {in no particular order} of things I am looking forward to this month:
  • The release of The Blind Side.  I can't even remember the last movie I saw in the theater, but this one, I am going to see.  I didn't know the story of Mike Oher until the previews for this movie started when I googled him and you guys, this is one of those stories that make me believe that the right things, the right places, the right people enter your life and make all the difference.
  • Thanksgiving, of course.  The food, the family, the insanity.  I'm working on the table ideas already & can't wait to post them for you soon!
  • Black Friday.  If you're new here, you'll soon learn that I'm one of those crazy people that do Black Friday up yearly... and drag my husband along for the fun.
  • The greatest football rivalry evah... GO BUCKS.
  • Celebrating the 2nd birthday of the most amazing little girl ever
  • Helping Emily with her new house, if she ever gives me any ideas whatsoever to go on and a plan of what to tackle first.  Ha!
  • I get my new sewing machine on Thursday.  Wow, I am going to be messing up all kinds of cute fabrics soon.  Any cute {beginner} ideas you can recommend for me?
  • Secret Santa Soiree I can't wait to see who has me & I am furiously trying to think of goodies for mine!  I've already added her to my blog reader to keep up with her life & try to think of something fabulous to fill her mailbox with.  
  • Best of all... My 400th post is fast approaching!  How should I celebrate? 
Whew.  It's gonna be a big month.  Let the fun begin!

Hi Michelle, I am new to your blog and just wanted to say I love it already! I'm looking forward to your NaBloPoMo - what can I say, it's my favorite time of year. :) Also, we have a mutual friend - Lisa Anderson - and I'm anxiously awaiting her guest post. Enjoyed what you did with Halloween - looking forward to what you do with Thanksgiving!

I can't believe you are doing NaBloPoMo! That is awesome and crazy all at the same time. I swear I will respond to every single post. On my life as your Bloggy BFF.

The Blind Side should be very good. I know you looked it up, but it is a true story from right here in Memphis. Its amazing that the wife just had that instinct to help the kid out, there are lots of kids here in that position. If they would not have helped him out, he likely would've ended up in a life of crime, like most in Memphis. Its a fantastic story. http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2009/apr/23/dream-realized/
