The Weekend Send-Off!

February 4th, 2011 - filed under: Furthermore » Feedback

Oh, hello lover! (that would be The Weekend, my dear sweet love). Absence makes the heart grow fonder and I have missed you so! I’ve got a ‘practically family’ friend flying into town just a few short hours from now. We’ve had amazing weather and I’ve been super inspired and yesterday my son turned 11 months old. Hello! Who took my baby and what is this little boy doing here?? We sure had fun playing with other kiddies at the vegan meet-up, though. So okay, little boy, I’ll take it.

Have you checked in on this month’s MMM? It’s a *really* good one, and we’ve already had someone receive a gift and come find the site to say hi. SO COOL! Hi Merlissacorn! Welcome!

Zee Love List!
My favorite part of Friday, finding time to find a little gratitude – and reading all the love coming in from you guys! So please post your lists! Mine:
1. Waits’ rosy nose when we play outside in winter, as evidenced above.
2. Um, the fact that it’s winter and it’s totally warm enough to play outside, with only a rosy nose to worry about!
3. On Monday morning, I’m finally, FINALLY, unveiling the Super Secret Project™ that’s been keeping me so occupied. *squeeeee*

Alright my dears. This happy little post will stay at the top of the page all weekend, so stop by any time to leave your Love List, ask a question, or offer some feedback! Or if you’re new, please introduce yourself and say ‘Oi!’! This is your community, so get involved!

Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Running with my daughter in a 4.77 mile race tomorrow morning! It’s gonna be cold, and rainy, and we don’t care – that’s what the clear bubble rain cover on her jogger is for, right?

    2. My chickens! They have been especially goofy this week, and I don’t know what I would do without my little flock.

    3. Finally knowing that you’re going to reveal the Super Secret Project™!

    Hi Sayward! I found your site today throught stumbling (it was the homemade deodorant page) and I LOVE your site! I love how you write, how clever you and and everything about Bonzai Aphrodite! I’ll definitely be coming back every day :)
    (I also added you to my favorites, so my visitors can check you out as well!

    1. Comfort Food – I had some major cravings for warm and hearty food this week, which were perfectly satisfied.
    2. The new cookbook from Happy Herbivore I received last weekend. I’m not vegan, but I’ve finally read through most of the recipes and I’m ready to get cooking!
    3. A clean kitchen. We don’t have a dishwasher but somehow managed to keep the counters *mostly* clean this week. A clean kitchen means more home cooked meals since I actually want to be in the kitchen.

    I can’t wait to hear the super secret news!

    Oh man, well the Super Secret Project™ has been revealed . . . it’s so highly specified at a target audience, I sure hope it’s not a disappointment to the rest of you! And sorry to keep you all waiting for so long . . . the anticipation was killing me as much as it was killing you, I SWEAR!

    @ Cassandra – Thanks! And welcome to the site, you’ve come at an exciting time. =D

    @ RK – I hope you had the BESTEST birthday weekend!!!

    @ Christa – The West Wing is unquestioningly the greatest television show ever created, for reals. I am jealous that you are getting to experience it for the first time.


    Love ALL the love lists, you guys are the best! =D
