Today feels like a good day for some unabashed, gratuitous bragging. So here goes:

1. My 4 year old understands and practices sarcasm. I'm so proud!
2. My 3 year old can write her name, and is an extremely good dancer.
3. My 17 month old can climb anything, and has taken to pushing furniture around the house.
4. My husband is the smartest, wittiest, most modest man I know. (ok, two of the three are dead on)
5. My new business, which is less than 6 months old, is doing extremely well. Tis the season.
6. My cats have taken to excreting in their litter box. Something that should've been obvious, one would think. One would be wrong.
7. We have a gorgeous new house, freshly built even, with beautiful, authentic, originals, made with only the best Crayola, on many of our walls.
8. We are soon to be the proud owners of a brand new Mini Cooper. Eeeee!
9. Our current vehicle is a purple mini van. This deserves credit for its uniqueness. How many purple mini vans do you see in a day?
10. My husband, although normally well-grounded, has convinced himself said mini van is actually a lovely shade of blue. I'm no longer alone in my lunacy!

There you are, my ten brags for today. Feel free to share your own.

Ready, Set, Brag!

Great List. Would love to see pics of the mini cooper when you get it. Love those cars.

In my defense…

In the correct lighting (read as: dead of night, possible full eclipse), the van could pass for a smoky blue.

It’s quite handsome really.

Love you baby!

Two equally important questions:
What is your new business, and what will be the color of the Cooper?

How'd you get a purple mini van...mine's soccermom blue...that's not fair! I wanted the purple one!!

JEA - I sell doll clothes for popular 18" vinyl play dolls, such as American Girl (R), and our Mini will be Silver with black detail. We're expecting it around Christmas!

Suzanne - Ahhh, Soccermom blue. Sounds heavenly. I wish I could offer a trade.
