Jumping On the Bandwagon and Lucy Pics

I am officially taking the plunge and jumping on the bandwagon.  I am not a usual bandwagon jumper, actually the opposite, I rebel against the bandwagon.  But the last couple of weeks Twitter has been lit up by this...

Of course my curiosity was sparked and I know that it is the pick for the Bloom book club.  I have never even heard of Ann Voskamp before this, and I still have never read anything by her, no books, no blog, nada.  I want to, I just run out of time each day.  So needless to say I am super excited to get this book in the mail in the next couple of days.  I have officially jumped on the "One Thousand Gifts" bandwagon and I can't wait for the ride to start.
Today the snow has been falling, it is so pretty.  Poor Eric shoveled the driveway and by the time he left for work you couldn't even tell.  Molly and I have had numerous picnics in the playroom, put together puzzles, danced to music, ate snacks, and watched some TV.  Lucy has enjoyed her day of eating, sleeping, and smiling.  I know I am biased, but she is such a great baby.  Not that Molly wasn't great, but Lucy is just so relaxed.  It's so enjoyable :)


I can't believe this child is going to be 2 months next week!  And Molly is going to be 3 1/2...and my 27th birthday is coming up, too.  We are all growing up :)
And lastly...since our computer crashed I have had a hard time reading some of your blogs, literally our browser won't open them.  So if you have not heard from me in a while...sorry!  I am working on getting the issue fixed, well, I am working on figuring out the issue, then fixing it.  Just wanted to say I am not ignoring anyone, I literally can't open your blog to read your posts. 

Have a great Thursday!

I'm a new Ann Vonskamp reader myself, and I am reading her book. I like it! Her style of writing is very different to me, but I'm enjoying it!

Oh my goodness, she is too, too precious!!!!! I just found out about Ann a few months ago and was captivated by her because she did a post on her agoraphobia. I am hoping she talks about it in the book, but I'm not that far into it yet. It seems like a great book so far. I'm with B, her style of writing is very different though.

Yay for everyone growing up. Ha!

I'm reading Ann's book too. I bought it on Cecily's kindle. I was so curious when I read she was ranked #9 on Amazon.com in the first few days after the release. I hadn't ever heard of her either, but I heard her speak at the Blogging conference I went to. I think she's very serious and dramatic (sort of opposite of me), but I also think she's a very gifted writer and a beautiful person.

Oh, that little Lucy is so pudgy and squeezable CUTE!

I'm a bandwagon jumper on-er myself too! The book is giving me such a different perspective on things!

I love Lucy's sweet cheeks and I'm so glad she's been such a joy!

I have run across that book on several blogs. My daughter who is now five months had the same shirt. Happy birthday whenever it comes up.
