sorry for the delay in posting.
you can thank blogger for being a dumb cuss
and not letting me schedule a post last night.

because it makes me feel like a jerk
for not letting everyone win?
i hate them. i really do.

and i'll give you the deets on what to do.)

boring if you're not her.

thank you to everyone who entered.

and to ease you into the weekend,
here's a lovely little gem of a video
my dad created.

yes he's talented.
and skinny.
did i tell you he lost 15 pounds?
well he did.
not that you care.
but he does, apparently.
he tells me everyday.

I'm very disappointed in the giveaway results. Good thing you added your dad's rad vide, because otherwise this post would suck. I want a crabby apple dress ;-)

I am going to step out of hiding to make a comment here. That was THE MOST AWESOME video, ever! I cried happy tears for your family! :)

I didn't enter the contest so I'm not sad I didn't win. But I am glad that I watched your dad's super awesome video so I could cry like a big hormonal pregnant woman. Everyone needs a good cry now and again, right?

Good LAWD woman, you should have a warning on that video. You KNOW how much eyeliner I wear! Now I have to redo my makeup before I can go out.

What an AMAZING video! I am so glad your lover and the daddy to your kiddos is home! You have such a beautiful family and I am so glad he is home! YAY!

Notes For Nadia said...

Ok girl, so you need to put a warning to not watch it at work where your entire office will see/hear you crying! Oh it was just absolutely amazing, beautiful, breathtaking, and unforgetable. For all that your Lover does and all that YOU do, may God bless you now and forever.

*virtual hugs*

Now where are those darn tissues?


Anita said...

Oh my goodness. It was all I could do not to cry my eyes out! I'm so happy for you. :)

Heather said...

Wow, what an absolutely beautiful video, and glorious day for your family. Please pass on thanks to your husband for serving our country and thank you for your sacrifice of not having your husband with you these past months so that he could. It takes a special kind of people to do what you do so well! Enjoy having him home! :)
