Hello From Our Pretend Vacation – and a Big Announcement

Hi, y’all. We’re home for naps, then out for more Pretend Vacation excitement. We’ve visited a fascinating museum, and had the honor to be shown around by the nicest, 87 yr old WWII veteran ever.

We had the pleasure of changing a poo diaper in the back of the SUV while it was 40 degrees outside (Just like a Real Vacation!)

The glory of the poo diaper in all its ‘whiffiness’ stayed with us in the SUV for way too long as there was NO trash can in sight. (The 2 yr old, the Originator of the poo diaper held his nose and complained the loudest.)

We ate lunch out. Just like a Real Vacation.

Am doing laundry. Just like a Pretend Vacation.

Having a lovely time, and I strongly recommend you do this in your own town! Or you could come to my town, but then it would actually turn into a Real Vacation, and a rather lame one at that, since we live in the middle of West Texas, and no one really vacations here intentionally.

Except our family.

One more thing. I WON AN AWARD. I’m very proud of it. I wanted to put up a banner in my sidebar, but since my site went all fancy, putting things in my sidebar is much more complicated, i think. But please celebrate it with me, as it is worthy of some hoopla! It is the Jeana Likes Me Award, and I am most proud of the category. "I Need Depends In Order To Navigate Her Site."  Isn’t that the BEST?! (It’s totally mutual, of course, the co-like we have as well as the needing Depends) Only a precious few of these awards were given, which can only mean that y’all need to be introduced. Go say hi, and don’t forget anything that might… be… necessary.

Congrats on that award, Kelsey…I think. Depends? Okay, I guess it just depends, right? Get that award up ASAP,girl!

And enjoy that pretend vacation. Sounds like a good idea for us to do during Spring Break since we’re probably not going on a real one.

Kelsey,

Congrats on the award! You certainly do give me a good laugh (especially when I’m in computer class)!

Pretend Vacation sounds like so much fun!

What a coincident. I was coming back to recommend Depends for you for Sunday. As much as I would love to hear the story about you having an accident in front of the church due to your fear of the public…well, it’s just not lady-like, especially for a southern woman. Congrats on the award!

Hey, as a kid we vacationed in Midland Odessa TWO YEARS. Okay, I had an aunt and uncle there, so it was a cheap trip. But we had fun–oil well museum, sand dunes, and we drove over to Carlsbad Caverns.

Glad you’re having fun! You crack me up.

Way to go on the award Kelsey!

And I LOVE the new look. How fun. I showed my husband and he said…”It reminds me of yours.”

Great minds…have designers that think alike:-)

WTG on the vacation at home. We might be forced into doing that from lack of $ to go anywhere else. We live in the center of four Civil War battlefields and people travel from all over to come and see them..

Yeah, somehow standing in the middle of a field is about as appealing as changing the poo diaper.

Since you’ve gone fancy with your site I’ve looked into doing the same w/EWebscapes for mine, too! :) AND you’ve encouraged me to do the same pretend vacation in our area. DH has a week off soon, I think your idea is very inspiring. I’m already making plans of things to do here. THANK YOU for sharing!

Congratulations on your award, Kelsey! I hope you had an entertaining afternoon with your family and that you’re worn out enough to get a good night’s sleep. Rest well and remember Matthew 6:34. You’ll be fine at tomorrow! Have a blessed Lord’s Day!

Holy Mama, you make me laugh! Depends? I definitely need it on your site. But is that because you’re funny, or because I’m getting older? Hmmmm….

Congratulations! You definitely deserve an award in that category. Personally, I’m horrified that you didn’t win the Humor award in the Share The Love awards.

Leann made your design, right? Maybe she could suggest how you can add the award to the sidebar…or if it’s possible.
