The first FIVE people I KNOW to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It'll be done this year. (might be a little while)
4- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be a joke book, autographed picture of myself, handmade bag, or a little invention of my own! I may create you a blog header or paint something for you with my food. (That would be scary). I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows?
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. Believe me... it may blow your mind! The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must re-post this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it! Sounds like fun, right?
So let's play!
And--if I don't have your address (and I'm not going to be near your home this year), please get that to me. Send me an e-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks.

Now onto Shaun's 29th birthday!! It was February 20th. We went our ultrasound in the morning, then school and work. We went to lunch together at Bayou on the Bay downtown. Then for dinner we grabbed some mexican food from El Tapateo (roach coach on Meridian at the yellow gas station by the Bellingham Althletic Club) and watched Brian Regan's comedy act we'd gotten from Netflicks.
We ate German Chocolate Cake--which I made from a box--with the Booths and enjoyed the company. (We only put 1 candle in the cake because we couldn't be bothered to use a whole box and a half.) The next day Shaun's parents and sister came up for Saturday and much of Sunday. Shaun had a good weekend. AND--we went out with Steve and Teri Booth to Anthony's Hearthfire Grill on Monday (a gift from them for Shaun's B-day) for dinner. It was delicious and fun to spend some alone time with the masters of the house. (Wink-smile)
Although, if you're interested, Shaun was working on the chicken coop that he's been building in the backyard for the Booths the day before his birthday---and unfournatley injured his right middle finger with the tip of the electric screw-driver. It cracked his fingernail open and he bled a bunch. It seems to be doing better. We hope the nail doesn't fall off. But--now your basically caught up. THE END...for today.

The whole thing is really very amazing. It was Shaun's birthday on Friday too-- (more info and pictures to be posted later from that event)--so, he had a special treat seeing his son that morning.

Hey--and on another related topic. Pregnant women are suppose to eat a healthy diet. So, I picked up this book, "Eating Well When You're Expecting" back when I first found out I was pregnant. Has anyone checked out this lady on the cover? She's NOT what I call the best "drawing" the publisher could have picked out.She looks so annoyed to be eating a salad. I feel bad for her every time I pick this book up. I was thinking about cutting a smile out of a magazine and MAKING her happy. What do you think?Oh, By the way, a few weeks ago, Shaun and I travelled to Canada to eat Brazilian BBQ food in Vancouver, BC. This rice and beans dish on the plate is FAMOUS Brazilian food, Feijoada with Farofa sprinkled on top. It is awesome and we highly recommend this dish to our friends who have not yet experienced the simplicity and delight this meal can bring! Go to http://www.cookbrazil.com/feijoada.htm for a recipe. (I haven't tried making this recipe yet.)
