Celebrating the Small Things

This hop comes with easy instructions:

Full instructions and badge here.
 
This week I'm celebrating:

1- That I did NOT get sick along with my kids and husband. #ThatWasClose
2- Fantastic helpful feedback from a beta.
3- An awesome drawing given to me by Brandon Ax. 
(Go follow him if you aren't already)

Backstory:
You know how we become all friendly online with people but we are not sure what level of psycho they might be... AND... might be scared to meet them in person? Well, we created a Psycho-Meter to check on those levels. The thing is... until our machine is done with the reading, we are left vulnerable.  So obviously its only natural to bring weapons along, just in case. Also, I request a bag of money in payment for my fantastic friendship, FYI.

This is us meeting for the first time:
(Apparently the cop thought this was suspicious activity o_0)


What are you celebrating?

  1. Psycho meter - yeah, might need one for that! Although most of the folks who have met in real life have had a pleasant experience.
    Glad you didn't get sick!

  6. Just coming in from The Hop, looking at the drawing (and will be off to visit the artist next) and trying not to laugh aloud because I'm in my place of employment where grinning at funny drawings is considered somewhat subversive! LOL!

    Have a great weekend! Diana from http://dianawilder.blogspot.com/

    1. lol through emails sure... the real life thing is still to be determined. I'm shopping around for my Axe just in case :D

  11. Phew, that was a close one. It's always touch and go when your family get sick. Normally I'm the one who gets sick first, and then I kindly share the germs with the rest of the family :D

    Bag of money for your friendship? Do you take credit cards? Though PayPal would be great - it's safer... LOL
    Glad you didn't catch the flu bug!

  14. I remember one year when my family of six all got the flu except me. I couldn't believe it, and I was so happy, but busy taking care of everyone. So glad you received kudos from your beta, I need to get one of those.
