a lot happened today and giveaway winner announced!!!

I have so much to tell all of you! Really, I do. Let me start with this...

On this day, 37 years ago, my mother-in-law gave birth to her smartest, funniest, best looking child.

Just kidding, Gretchen, I know that really describes you!

Today is the birthday of my sweet husband. We had a party for him. The kids hung streamers and balloons and I made him his special birthday dinner. Wait until you hear what he asked for.

Have I mentioned how much I love this man?

Let me preface this by telling you that most years for Father's Day and his birthday I make a long involved meal. Something he loves that I never make because it is a huge hassle.But not this year!


He asked for.....




You are all going to be jealous.....




Here it comes.......



Frozen pizza.




I know, he does rock. He wanted a frozen Pizzeria Uno sausage pizza.


NO PROBLEM!

Part 2 of my many things to tell you.....

One year ago today Harrison had to have an emergency appendectomy. I blogged about it HERE. It was a harrowing week last year at this time. Needless to say Adrian didn't get ANY birthday dinner last year. We stayed at the hospital all week.

Good times!

NOW there is the little matter of the book giveaway....


I put all the names in a very festive orange bucket and let the birthday boy pick one out. And I took a picture. Good thing, because as soon as he picked one out he threw it back in and said take another picture.

What a funny guy. We let him get away with it since it is his birthday.

I would show you the picture, but my camera died trying to take that last picture, so I have my battery in the charger.

I guess


I will



just tell



you that



it was







The Accidental Housewife!


SO email me at cnhale(at)gmail(dot)com with your address and if you want Jan to sign the book in any special way.

I haven't actually seen Jan since I decided to give her book away in my first ever giveaway. She did not come in on Monday while I was at the library. I may have to call her and go to her house tomorrow after work.

I hope she is excited.

My husband asked me where the accidental housewife lives and I told him she is from Montana. Now he can't stop singing that Marie Osmond song, Meet Me In Montana.


Great, just great, and it is his birthday so I can't complain.
