I Heart Firemen.

firemen So last Friday I was dropping off baby girl at my parents' and everything was going great.  I decided to take a different street than I usually do when I leave my parents'.  The street with a Starbuck's drive thru of course.  All of a sudden instead of feeling like I was driving on pavement, I felt like I was driving on a rocky dirt road.  I was on a two lane street so I pulled over to the right.  I jumped out real quick to see what happened and just as I thought, a flat tire.  I was trying to text my husband because I honestly didn't know who I should call first.  Before I could send my text I saw flashing lights in the back and instead of the police, it was a fire truck.

The next thing I knew I was being asked if I had a donut in the back, I said yes and one of the firemen said, "Since you have a spare tire on you we can change it for you!".  I was in shock and still am.  Do firemen really do this?  I guess they do because I was able to sit in my air conditioned car while five firemen changed my tire in less than 10 minutes.  I was beaming from ear to ear when I said, "Thank you!!" and headed to Starbucks after all.

So.  Amazing.  Has anything out of the ordinary like that happened to you?

Do share, such a blessing!

P.S. I have a scanner now and it is the bomb.com.

Happy Birthday Cake!

Whoever thought of the expression, "Time Flies", was a genius.  It is so true.  Two years ago today my baby girl came into the world and I can barely remember life without her poofy curly fro, super-sized smile and joyful laughter.  She is our world and we hope she knows just how much we love her every second of every day.  "Happy Birthday Cake" is what she says instead of "Happy Birthday" and we wouldn't have it any other way.  I sorta rhymed. :)

xo,

Mama and Daddy

Countdown.

Lately I have been living for the weekends.  Sleeping in.  Cuddling.  Being a couch potato.  Running errands.

One more day.  So ready.  There are two things I added to the list though.

  1. Buy tulips
  2. Eat BBQ

Can you tell I am ready for spring to get here, full force?

24 Hour Comics Day

I've always wanted to participate in 24 Hour Comics Day and this weekend I did.  This is a day where you draw comics for 24 hours and you can document a day in your life or you can just work on a comics story.  I documented our Saturday and I loved it.  I lasted 14 hours and the panels I didn't draw would be of us sleeping anyway so I consider this a win.  :)  Hope you can read my chicken scratch. Click the images to make the bigger.  Thanks for checking out my first comic!
