Things that make you go hmmmmm

I just experienced one of those things. I just went to the mail box. There is never anything good in there, only BILLS! Well today was different. I received a mysterious card with no return address. And even my name was misspelled (I'm a RobiNson, not a Robison :) The card simply says "friends". But when I opened it up I found TYPING that said :
Dear Miriam,
I just wanted to let you know that I was thinking about you. Please use this gift card to spend on yourself (enclosed was an Old Navy giftcard). You deserve it!
Your friend

Now, this person went through A LOT to be so mysterious....so as Miriam would normally do, I would call everyone that I think it could be, question them....I would some how eventually track them down. But you know, I kind of like the mystery. I know that someone out there loves me and is thinking of me...and that means a lot! Thank you to whoever you are (hopefully one of my blog followers) YOU JUST MADE MY DAY!!!

Pumpkin Patch

We had so much fun at the pumpkin patch. Micah is already ready to go again. He loved petting the animals, riding the cow train, and playing in the corn box (a sandbox filled with corn instead of sand) I'm thinking that it would be a whole lot cleaner if Stacy and I emptied out Micah's sandbox and filled it with corn instead....hmmmm...I wonder how much that would cost? Micah's sandbox is one of his most favorite things. As you know he LOVES to be outside...most of his time is spent in his sandbox....maybe we should just build him a corn box too :) Mama, Laura, Ethan, Stacy and I had a lot of fun at the Pumpkin patch. My favorite was probably just watching Micah. He was such a big little man riding in that cow train. I was so proud of him *on a side note, Micah learned to say his name this week...Until Monday he has always referred to himself as caca which as most of you know is Spanish for Poop....Well I worked real hard on Monday and now he can say Mmmicah....Man I wish I knew how to upload and share videos. Anyway here are the long awaited for pics :)

Fall Fun

Oh, am I excited about the cooler weather! I spent almost all weekend outside. Friday and Saturday we had a yard sale. I didn't have a whole lot to sale, being that I am a Barrow Bargin Barn, GAM, Craigslist, Ebay selling machine :) Mostly the things that I brought to sale were things that had already attended AT LEAST one other sale. I went to hang with the fam and hoped to make $2! I did....I made $40 which way surpassed my hopes!! Any money is good now days....so we'll be going to do the farm activities at the Pumpkin Patch today....it cost $8 a person (including Micah!) I can't wait! I'll update on that soon!
We had a bonfire planned for Friday night, but it got rained out, so we rescheduled for Sunday. Sunday was a busy day. I am so excited to share that on Sunday afternoon we had our pictures taken by the BEST photographer EVER Christy Martin. http://www.christymartinphotography.com/
Mama went along with me (to help with directions) to Watson Mill Bridge State Park. We had been there one time previously when looking for land. It is such a beautiful park. There is a sweet old covered bridge there that you can actually drive though. And the scenery is just amazing. If you haven't been you should go. Micah did great for pictures and even did a little posing! He was a hoot! And Christy (with the help of Hannah) did GREAT with Micah, and I can't wait to see the pics! I just love that family! We had the opp to spend time with the Aaron/ Martin family on Saturday night. We had taken them a moonwalk to play in and ended up spending a while playing and catching up. We all had a blast especially Micah who befriended not only the adults, but Christy's beautiful children Ross and Rayna.
Well, after pictures on Sunday we rushed back home because of our bonfire. We had invited the fam and some friends over for food and fun. We didn't have any accidents (like Ethan's hand) this time and just had fun! Micah probably had more fun than any. He mostly hung out by the food table and ate the WHOLE time.....he also watched where people would lay their cups, and help himself to a drink when they weren't (and sometime when they were) looking. Enjoy the pics and I'll post some of the Pumpkin Patch soon!

So....I've been tagged too

So....My kind friend Jennifer tagged me and wanted me to share a little more about myself....so here goes...

Four things I did today:
1. Moved the children's DVDs to a higher shelf. Micah has become an expert stool/ chair carrier and has on numerous occasions got into the DVS....he doesn't even watch them. He just like to take the out of cases and put them in the DVD player. AH!!!
2. Decluttered the play room closet and found some things to sell :)
3. Went to the Dacula QT and got gas for $3.55!!! Yay!!!
4. Won an auction on Ebay for a monkey costume! I'm SO excited it's Tom Arma!!

Four things on my to do list:
1. Mop
2. Iron
3. Make flyers for Party Jumps to give to Day care centers.
4. Clean out my own closet

Four of my guilty pleasures:
1. Chocolate and icecream, but not chocolate icecream :)
2. I'll go with Jennifer and say my DVR is the BEST thing (next to the internet) ever invented! Stacy and I have a hard time staying awake to watch a lot of our favorite shows...DVR is the BEST!
3. Which leads me to the next...The Office, 24, Lost, Prison Break, The Biggest Looser, Chuck....I could go on and on....we watch something every night!
4. Ebay, Facebook, and Weather Channel.com, I don't know what I'd do without them.

Four random facts about me:
1. I love to scrapbook....but it seems like when I have the most time to scrap (during Micah's nap) I spend a lot of my time online instead of scrapping.
2. I LOVE to cut the grass, and I'm sad that it's almost the end of grass cutting season.
3. I know 18 people who are pregnant, and the list keeps growing everyday....No it doesn't make me wish I was pregnant, I just wish that a baby would appear...or a 2 year old would appear...not sure. I just think Micah would Love a sibling :)
4. I have never been on a cruise, but would LOVE to go on one. Anyone want to take me?

Now you know a little bit more about me. I'd like to know more about you so I tag...

This a a sweet conversation between Micah and me last night....I SO wish I had it recorded

Micah: Mama, I see moon
Me: You do?
Micah: Uh Huh. I wanna eat it.

Me: You want to eat the moon?
Micah: Uh huh.
Me: Hum.....What do you think it will taste like?

Micah: Watermelon.
Me: Mmmmmm

It was too funny, but you know, if I was a little man I might think that the moon resembled a yummy slice of watermelon too :)

Down time

So here I am between moonwalks....both of my boys are napping, I have moped, cleaned all floors, done laundry, and edited some pictures. I truly SHOULD be at the gym but I'm still full from lunch....and you know what working out does to a full stomach :( Daddy and I went to Xaxby's for lunch. I LOVE the kickin' chicken sandwich.....but it's still in my tummy 3 hours later, is that a good thing or a bad thing, not sure.....But I got some pics edited and ready to share. Here are some fun things from last week :)

As if I needed something else to take up my time..... There has been something going on on Facebook and now on other blog sites, that has become highly addictive. Don't try it unless you have a lot of extra time.....I'm warning you! Yearbookyourself.com is the place to be but is too addictive!
