Warm Fuzzy Friday is Back! (aka Because I'm the Mom)

Another warning...this post may be filled with rambling....the rambling of an exhausted woman...the coyotes had a rock concert outside my bedroom window for about 2 solid hours last night...I am not responsible for my rambling...

Because I was up all night "enjoying the coyote concert", my restless mind led me back to my "early" days of blogging. Back then I did a post called Warm Fuzzy Friday all about my beloved grandmother, Gigi. Gigi loves us so much that when Catherine presented her with a play-doh heart shaped "cookie" last Valentine's Day, she took a bite, grimaced a bit, smiled and told Catherine how delicious it was! Now Gigi didn't know it was play-doh...she just loves Cat so much that when Cat told her it was a cookie she took her at her word and took a bite! (Auntie G, I know you are laughing hysterically at the memory of this...)

Anyhoo, once again, I was filled with warm fuzzies remembering this and decided that today is another Warm Fuzzy Friday! Here are some things that give me warm fuzzies...

*Hanging out with my kids - This gives me the warmest of all fuzzies!

*"Love Actually" - I cannot watch this movie enough! It always makes me smile and the music is fab too! LOVE IT!

*Love You More - This adorable necklace is made by Kristin over at La Dolce Vita..she has an Etsy shop... (go check out her awesome Rock Star Dad guitar picks too! Love those!)













(oops...it seems I've gotten off track...that was actually a Valentine's day hint for the hubby...I was just thinking about that and my fingers just began typing like crazy....moving on...)

*Sony Digital Cameras



(oh..looky what I did again...dropped another hint for hubby....what' wrong with me today???)

*Philosophy Amazing Grace 3-in-1 Shower Gel/Shampoo/Bodywash and the fabulous Amazing Grace Perfume



(oh my gracious! I just can't stop myself ! More helpful hints for the hubster...)

This apparently gives my mother the giggly warm fuzzies....

"The Mom Song"

video
(it's a bit long, but you might get some giggles...)

hmmmm...I think she's still trying to tell me something....

What gives you the warm fuzzies on this fabulous Friday??

p.s. As I am not responsible for my blogging while exhausted...please note that I've never tried the whole video upload before...hopefully it's working! I apologize in advance for any irritation you may develop if it's not:) Off to bed now...I mean school....zzzz...zzzz....

I watched Love Actually for the second time in my life, this Christmas. I had seen it in the theater when it came out, and I completely forgot what a great movie it is! Definitely one of my all time faves.

I think I have to watch Love Actually again to give it another chance.

I loved reading about your warm fuzzies. And, thanks for the laugh with your oh-so-subtle Valentine's Day gifts. :)

Warm Fuzzies... the little kicks that I feel all day. The excitement my hubby shows when he rubs the belly. And when he says in church he is grateful for our family to be and asks for prayers as we embark on our journey together.

Ummm... I'm spent. Smelling smoke yet? Brain worked in over drive.

My sister and I routinely use Love Actually dialogue in everyday conversation. "just in cases".....

I once was privilaged to be an audience to a coyote concert. What a joy that was. I remember being terrified. Its not wonder you are not rest!

Lets see..warm fuzzies.....when my youngest hugs. He gives the very best hugs! And when my oldest says the word "wuff you" (love you). My heart melts!
Dawn said…
Your blog is just seems to be a 'feel good' blog. I love it! These were great warm fuzzies! :)
LORI said…
I LOVE THE MOM SONG VIDEO, SHE IS KIND OF MY HERO. AND HER SONG IS MY MANTRA. MY WARMEST FUZZIEST IS ANYTHING HAVING TO DO WITH MY SWEET KIDS (AND HUSBAND!), AND SNUGGLING IN ON A FRIDAY NIGHT AND WATCHING MOVIES OR PLAYING GAMES WITH THEM!

Exhaustion becomes you - great post.

I love philosophy, but I've never tried the Amazing Grace scent. Great - now you've got it in my mind that I HAVE to have it.

I hope you get some sleep!

If that was my mother (the video one, not yours), I'd run away. She's manic and frightening.

I love that necklace from La Dolce Vita!!!!!

I would love to hear a coyote concert, although it would probably scare the daylights out of me at first. I love your warm fuzzies.
Kristen Andrews said…

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…

Chilly Update...

I hate this disease with a passion...more on that in a moment...

First and foremost, there aren't enough words in the English language to convey my most sincere gratitude for the amazing love and support you've all shared with my family. I am completely overwhelmed and very humbled by it all. I've shared all of your comments and emails with Chilly and the kiddos. It has meant so much to us! Thank you, thank you and thank you again!

I wish I could write that Chilly is fine and coming home tomorrow. I wish I could go back to last Friday when every fiber of my being was screaming at me that Chilly was having a heart attack. I wish I would have pinned him to the ground and shoved an aspirin down his throat when he put me off about his symptoms. I wish he would have agreed to go to the ER...Sadly, I can't turn back time...

We were told today that Chilly has suffered a stroke in addition to a heart attack. These two events occured together...meaning, he had the stroke w…
