Ohhhh another Rak... cool!!

I am celebrating today that my car decided not to start right outside the house of our mechanic when I came to visit, and not at the supermarket in the pouring rain!

congrats on all your blessings this year!

I am celebrating a day well-spent with my daughter Sofia - lots of mommy/daughter time and then lots of daddy/daughter time after that (so mommy could have some mommy time!)

thanks for doing this RAK :)

Life is a celebration! - oops '80's flashback there. Anyhoo.. today I will celebrate that I get to go pick up my son from college. He just completed his first year, he did awesome, and now he gets to come home for summer! I'm very proud and very anxious to see him. It's been awhile since he was home for Spring Break and I can't wait to give him a big hug!! I celebrate the health, joy and love our family has been blessed with. I celebrate the Lord. And I celebrate that my nails are finally at a decent length to paint! Yes, that's shallow, but a big feat for me!!
Thanks for the RAK opportunity and the nudge to celebrate outloud!!

I have to celebrate that my son just turned 4 yrs old; he's healthy, active, smart, & full of love. I also have to celebrate a wonderful husband/father; who's loving, supportive, & encouraging.

Congrats.
I'm celebrating that I'm attending my first SB class this evening, even though I have been scrapping for 2 years. I'm also celebrating that my 1yo girl knows how to say terms like "bath", "cut", etc, and also everyone in the family is well and healthy.
Thanks for the RAK opportunity.

Congratulations for all you celebrations this year.

I'm celebrating that we have had some rain (our area has been in drought for some time) and that the countryside and gardens look fresh despite the fact that it is now winter. I'm celebrating that even though it is cold we are fortunate and grateful that our home is nice and warm.

Congrats on all the things you are celbrating.

What I am celebrating is the safety of my dd(6) and her friend from school. They decided to walk home from school by them selves last week. Forgetting that onebody was at home. Lucky for us we live close to the school and her daycare thought to check the house.

I celebrate that I have a heathy and beautiful 10 month old granddaughter. After having two brothers, then I had two sons, following I have two nephews and now I finally have a little girl in my life! Hurray for that and that is why I celebrate today! She makes scrapbooking more fun for me!

Celebrating that I made it to the OB's 34 week cut off and can go back to work on Monday (although I'm not sure that I should be celebrating that one - LOL)!

Give me some tips when you figure out the mouth thing - need to pass them along to DH.....

ooh, maya road paper!

today i'm celebrating that our application for a new apartment was approved! of course it's smaller than our current place and much more expensive (gotta love boston :p), but it'll be close enough for my hubby to walk to work rather than driving when he's been on call all night, or just gotten out of a long surgery! so i guess i'm also celebrating his safety and my sanity! :)

today i celebrate my hubby coming back from a conference! One whole week of being apart!
I am also celebrating that we have finally come to understand somethings together as a couple through this time apart.
Also celebrating that my family and I are in good health. That is often the most important of all!

I too needed a reminder to celebrate!

I am going to celebrate the fact that my son has had no setbacks from his transplant, that my daughter is growing up to be a beautiful young woman who is such a good kid and that my youngest can make me smile when no one else can. I am also going to celebrate a wonderful amazing dh that fixed dinner AND cleaned up the kitchen last night since I just wasn't feeling up to doing it. I am very blessed.

What a great RAK! I love the way it looks.

What do I celabrate today? The beautiful weather. It's so much fun just hanging out outside, doing a bit of scrapping at the gardentable.
It makes me feel happy!
And that's a very nice feeling, after feeling down since novembre through a burn-out.

What I have to celebrate today is a very good friend rescuing me in a state of crisis. I ran out of coffee cream this morning and she handed some over along with her magic frother to take my boring coffee (albeit a necessary boring coffee) to an entirely new, decadent level of latte heavenliness!

That, and my business is ROCKIN' OUT way faster and way more than I expected this early on.

Great RAK!

I'm celebrating that my youngest (4) finally overcome his fear of the dentist and actually sat on the chair and allowed the dentist to examine his teeth! He would always cry before today, after loads of persuasion and bribery, he did it! So proud of him!

I'm celebrating that we moved into our new house! Lots of boxes all around, but at least we're home!

 
At 6/07/2007 03:06:00 PM, Blogger Keely said...

My biggest thing to celebrate today would be that I ran all my errands in an hour while my husband was home with my 2 year old son and 7 week old son. I made 8 stops(yes that's eight!) which included the grocery store, 2 different gas stations, post office, CVS, local home improvement store, the bank and even a garage sale. For me that's fast because I usually am slow especially with both of the boys tagging along! I'm a SAHM so I don't get much time out especially by myself so it was nice just to have that time alone.
Thanks!

I am celebrating that I smelled gas at my friend's house and MIGHT have kept them from serious illness or injury from the gas. This is despite the fact that I feel guilty that because of my nose, she has to spend a lot of money she doesn't have, to repair the small leak.
