Some Monday Silliness

Jim Henson would have turned 75 on Saturday (and yes, that was what the "puppets" on Google were about this weekend). Stumbled across this old gem on facebook. Had to share. It made me giggle! Enjoy!

Happy Anniversary


Today my hubby and I are celebrating our 5th Anniversary.
Well "kind-of" celebrating...

We are not the type to buy each other extravagant gifts, or spend more money than we need to at a fancy restaurant. We are going out for supper with our little boys and my in-laws to Boston Pizza. Nothing fancy, but a place where I can enjoy a glass of wine while my two year old eats chicken nuggets is pretty much perfect in my books!

Also since I didn't have a "Friday Feature" today thought I would share a Etsy find. I just found it last night. If it had been earlier I TOTALLY would have ordered it to give to the hubby today. It made me laugh out loud!


"I LOVE YOU SO MUCH THAT SOMETIMES I IGNORE YOUR FARTS. 
OF COURSE, THAT DOESN’T MEAN I WANT YOU TO START FARTING MORE. 
IT JUST MEANS SOMETIMES I’M WILLING TO LET ONE OR TWO GO UNNOTICED. BECAUSE OF LOVE." 

Love you babe! Happy Anniversary!

I need some motivation. Or hypnosis?


Seriously? No one show my husband (or anyone's husband!) this link please. Scary, Scary thought!

FRIDAY FEATURE - CoCo Rose Couture

I cannot begin to say how much I LOVE this Etsy shop. The product, colors and photography used are just spectacular. I love the owners sense of style!

I have become quite familiar with it as a fellow Alberta Street Team member, but I did not realize until yesterday that the owner Bree, was also a member of the Etsy for Autism Team, and a fellow Autism Mommy. So needless to say, here is my Friday Feature for this week: CoCo Rose Couture!


A little bit about the shop...
`My shop is basically me going to vintage stores buying antique jewelry and using them in my fascinators. With vintage fabrics dupioni silk old buttons rhinestones. I love creating pieces that have a history, a story and just that little touch of whimsy that makes you feel unique creative and beautiful. Everything in my shop is inspired by something and has a story behind why i make it.`




The shop features beautiful and colorful vintage inspired accessories. You absolutely must check out the little girls fascinators. Would be SO CUTE for a little girl`s birthday, or as a photo prop.


Bree also has a wonderful blog at: http://thepolkadothouse.blogspot.com/. Thank you Bree for sharing your style and creativity with us! Your shop make`s me wish I had a little girl!

I don't know if I'm "Highly Successful" but...

Sharing a link to another blog. A great read!

7 Habits of Highly Successful Special Needs Parents

A couple good quotes:
"One of my child’s doctors once told me that I would never see his greatest potential if I was going to feel sorry for him. He was right. If your expectations of what your child can accomplish are clouded by guilt, pity, or hopelessness, you might never see what they can really do!"


"Having a child with special needs can be all-consuming. It doesn’t have to define you, though."


And all of point #7, because it is one I strongly believe in:
"It’s easy to get wrapped up in looking for the eventual benefits of some treatment in your child’s future, but don’t forget they are already wonderful people, just as they are. Enjoy the moments that make you smile. Cherish the person they are today, for all their issues and ordeals. They are precious gifts. And, they are the same beautiful people that they were the day before you found out about their condition, delay or disability. Don’t hesitate to take the time for a day at the park, or just snuggle time on the couch! Those are the moments that give you the strength to keep going."
