*sigh*,,, im feeling a tad bit emotional right now. *good* emotions. grateful, really. grateful for *YOU* {truly ~ YOU}. i dont ever quite get into my personal life... sure ill mention a bit here,,, a bit there,,, but thats about it. i know ive said this before {and nobody believes me}, but i promise,, promise,,, promise i am a very shy person, {think about the first time we met},,, and if our paths have yet to cross,,, i promise i will be shy. im scared. scared of rejection. i also am very aware of my excitement and lack of the ability to contain it. i am an all or nothing kinda chick and if i think you might not be able to handle it, i refrain. on that same{ish} note you have no, No, NO, NO idea how much it means to me when *you* leave me a blog comment. i really appreciate it. it makes me soooo stinkin' happy. putting myself out *there* {wherever *there* might be} is an interesting thing, really. like the people that have *joined* my blog. *followed me* per say. i want to thank *you* so very much for showing me support. it might seem so silly to one, but think about it like this. a marathon. ive never ran in one, nor do i plan on it {like, ever}. but im thinking about the people in the crowd. cheering,,, screaming,, clapping. i never really thought that if one person joined in, it would make a difference. now i know it does. one comment or a few more, make my day. make me happy. everybody who wished me a congrats for making it on the design team ~ truly ~ thank you. THANK YOU. where was i?? oh,, the whole *follow* this blog. i hadnt added it to my side bar for fear that nobody would *follow* me. promise. i see others that have eight or twenty two or nine million {sorry, had to throw something sarcastic in,,, its getting waaay tooooo serious around here} and i was scared that i wouldnt have any. i finally got over that {because really, i did have three faithful followers from the get go}, but once i put it out there now i have twelve!! twelve!!! thats awesome. thank you ladies for *following* me. i appreciate that and i makes me wanna rock on harder just to keep you inspired,, {alright, alright its kinda cool to get a chuckle here and there too ~ gotta be honest here}. maybe a lil' ROFL action you know or how about you LMAO?? {inside joke},,, anyway,,, the whole sassafrass blog thing,,, sent me sailing over the moon. still on cloud nine. making a design team ~ sweet. to be completely honest, i havent {until lately} ever tried out for a design team. didnt want to find out that i hadnt made it. it would break my heart. when i want something, i put everything into achieving it,,, and i hate hearing no. i sooo badly wanted to try out for the hambly design team this past summer. i was gonna. then i totally lost my courage,, chickened out. making a design team is so rad to me and *you* have been there and showed me love, and for that im truly grateful. {if i ever won an oscar or an emmy they would for sure be playing the music,, like,, seven minutes ago, yes?? like,, "hey,, hey you,,, get the heck off the stage!!!!! we wanna see angelina jolie"}. anyway,, i kinda felt the need to express my gratitude for *you*. you freaking rock!!! thank *you*

on another side note {also adding to my emotions},, my baby brother graduated from *a* school today {navy}. top of his class. my eyes are filling up with pride {alright, alright,, maybe tears}as i type. he is eighteen years old and ready to take south korea head on. just like a man should. amazing. he makes me so happy. i am so happy and proud to be his big sissy and i cant wait to see him when he comes home {whenever that is}, but it will be very, very soon. we wanna get matching tattoos {dont worry mom we really wont ;-) }. mainly because he thinks ill wanna get mr clean or the monopoly guy tatted on my booty ~ ahem, noooo thank you baby brother!!! non the less, we are sure to have a blast hanging ten together. cant wait.
moving right along {and trying to break away from the emotions} i went to petco today to buy a new ball for our hamster {which my children cleverly named *mousie~mousie*}. well, i ended up with another hamster. meet rino {like from the movie bolt}. she {yes, she has a boys name, we know} is a roborivski hamster and tiny. she wont get any bigger than sofias two-year-old-fist. my hubby was a little surprised, but he actually got over it really quick, {thanks mom}. she is freaking adorable.nexxxxxxt,,,,

Ally--Oh my word, that was such a special blog today, I definitely had some tears. You are so entertaining and I love to read your thoughts (a blog is such a good way to do that). I look forward to what you have to say every morning at 8:00 a.m., that's how I start my day with xoxo,ally. I'm happy you and Cardo are taking a few days to get away, it would totally be cliche to say "have a good time," I don't have to remind you to do that, it comes naturally with you. Enjoy your time away, be safe.
Love you, Mom
