Random Awesomeness

Last night, sitting in the recliner with Jason’s oldest daughter, age five, playing Italian words off my 24/7 Italian app on iPhone. She repeated each word perfectly. She even rolled her R’s. I love this kid. She is awesome. I can’t wait to take her to Italy, for Italia-awesomeness.

Jason’s youngest daughter who is three, with no prompting, throwing her arms around me saying, “I wuv you.”  And always, always pooching her lips up for a good-by kiss when I leave. A child’s love awesomeness.

Sydney cooking cheese enchiladas for her Spanish class fiesta. I sure didn’t teach her how to cook, but she just loves to. Breaking the cycle awesomeness.

My mom coming for Thanksgiving, FOR REAL. Awh-SOME! Oh, and bringing her famous cheese balls. Nummy food awesomeness.

Jason buying a new mattress, and a new nightstand for the guest bedroom in his house. Doing it for my mom when she visits  for Thanksgiving. Taking her out for Sushi, putting up with her five dogs.   Full throttle – oh my heart – awesomeness.

Still tucking Sydney in to bed, at age fifteen, shhh don’t tell her friends. That last kiss and hug is my nightly being a mommy AWESOME-ness.

Heart swelling up when I get a thank you call from Carter Bloodcare about my donation. I get to hear a blood recipient detail their story of how a blood donor saved their life. Tear jerking awesomeness.

Wearing Jason’s pajama pants in the winter while running around my house. Thinking of him in my pure comfy awesomeness.

Volunteering in the Church nursery, playing with three boys when in struts  a two year old diva wearing these. Pink Texan boot kicking awesomeness.

Petunia flower pot in my driveway blooming in November. One-of- a- kind, never say die awesomeness.

A short blog post from me – hated by spell checker – bloggedy  blog AWESOME-ness.

Have a most AWESOME,  Thanksgiving Eve!

May all, and I do mean ALL, your foodie dreams come true.

  1. Don’t you love finding so much ‘random awesomeness’ in life?! It’s wonderful. And you find the awesome in not only the big things but the small as well.
    Have a super terrific (my generations’ ‘awesome’) and blessed Thanksgiving.


  2. A Thanksgiving Limerick, DC-style:

    I just heard that two turkeys’ demise
    Was avoided, to their great surprise.
    The big turkey in power,
    In the eleventh hour,
    Gave them pardon, along with the pies.

    Hope you and yours have the Happiest!
    (And no, I did not write that limerick…but I did Google it!)

  5. Well, I was going to say something about fairies when I got side-tracked looking at your “What I’m Reading”. I love fairies. I love crosses. And I ‘specially love dragonflies. I think Dragonflies are the most perfect combination of fairies and crosses. Ever notice that?


  6. Weezer– I never thought of them that way. That makes perfect sense. Very cool! I got my mom the neatest perfume bottle dragonfly. I will definitely look at them in a different light. Thanks for sharing that!

    Bliss– Thank you for bright comments. You are such a beacon of warmth and happiness.
