A Very Good Day {and Instagram Week Coming!}

Today was a good day. The kind of day that makes me smile. The kind of day that reminds me why we started this blog 5 months ago :)

I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has shared the love with us for our Yarn Letters and other Valentine’s projects this weekend.  You guys are too sweet! I was seriously smiling so hard it hurt as I read some of your comments…. here’s one of my favorites {from Jessica @ Two Shades of Pink}:

“OH MY WORDY WORD! How gorgeous are your ombre letters???!!!! I love, love, LOVE anything yarn and you have taken it to a whole new extraordinary level. So stinkin impressed with you! AMAZING!”

I think “Oh my wordy word” is my new favorite phrase :) So that’s what I woke up to this morning on my phone…. tons of amazing comments from you guys. Thank you.

THEN…. I spent 3 glorious, amazing hours getting my hair cut and colored {sans-kids}. That has to be the best treat ever for any mom.

THEN…. as I was driving home from the salon, I got this e-mail {yes, I check my phone while driving… very bad I know}:

“Your hard work and efforts have paid off for your sister Nat. Random.org selected you from the four finalists as the winner of our SNAP! ticket contest. Let me know if you have any questions. xoxo – Tauni”

Whhhaaat??? I almost had to pull off the road and catch my breath :) We WON?? We actually won something? And it was the SNAP! ticket! Oh my wordy word! I dialed my sister’s number and literally screamed it into the phone :) Now we will get to go to SNAP together! I still can’t believe it! Thank you to everyone who voted for us. We love y’all!

THEN…. I got to go on a date with my husband. An actual date. Where you go to a nice restaurant and you get to eat your food while it’s actually hot {instead of sitting down to serve yourself a full 15 minutes after everyone else’s meals have been: served, cut up into bite-size-non-choking pieces, cups filled, hot plates retrieved from the fridge, rolls buttered, cups re-filled, and spills cleaned up.} Am I the only one whose family dinners resemble this routine?? It was heavenly to have a few hours of him to myself and we really need to do this more often :)

THEN…. Tonight, my baby pooped in the tub. {Not the float-on-top-easy-to-scoop-out kind either.} And I spent a good hour cleaning up the mess and disinfecting every surface that might have possibly come in contact with the tub or my daughter. It was not fun.

But hey, I guess 4 out of 5 isn’t too bad :) I’m still very happy with my Saturday!

OK, now to the REAL news of the night! We have an awesome week of posts coming up for you guys….

Nat has put together an entire week’s worth of fun & creative ideas for using your Instagram photos… and if you don’t have Instagram, don’t worry! It will be super easy to use your regular pictures for these projects too :) So, make sure to come back Monday for our first Instragram post… you won’t want to miss it! {There may just be an awesome printable involved.}
AND one more “good day” moment to end on. Our first Instagram idea will be featured in a video tutorial {starring Nat} on one of our favorite local TV shows, Studio 5, Monday morning at 11:00 am (MST). We’re super excited for this opportunity! Hope you’ll tune in if you can :) If not, we’ll have the video linked up here later!
If you want to grab a button and spread the {Instagram Love} we wouldn’t mind :)


Have a great rest of the weekend!

    Ok…you two are adorable. I mean, ah-dor-a-ble. Love your blog, love the projects, love the bag, love the shoes, love it! I just “followed” the blog and will totally be back. Keep up the good work!
    I too, live several (hundred) miles from my sisters and it sucks. But they don’t craft…and they’re kinda dysfunctional…but that is neither here nor there…I digress.
