I'm Tickled Pink... and Marriage?

Today is a good day! Not only is it Friday, but today I have been Tickled Pink!
I’m Tickled Pink at 504 Main

Holly from 504 Main featured my blog today! So welcome, welcome anyone who may be new coming from Holly's blog. If you have not seen Holly's blog, definitely check it out! Wonderful blog with such cute craft ideas; in fact the birds we made during this Time For Tot's day were inspired by her blog.

And for those who might be new, a little about me:

I am a mid-west born, now California living stay-at-home mom of 2 1/2 great and crazy kids (the half will become a whole in July). I try and see the good and positive in life; though some days this is definitely easier than others. When those days are just really bad.. well then I try and find something funny about it, because hey, it makes good blogging material. I love photography and am currently in the 'building my portfolio stage' of my career. I love blogging and have enjoyed getting to know so many other great people.

Some things you might like on my blog:
  • Time For Tots Day- Once a week I try and spend some extra time creating with, teaching and playing with my kids (to rid myself of mommy guilt). I pick a theme and find activities that relate with that theme. Then every Wednesday I share what we did, along with the links so you can do it with your kids too.
  • Cooking Club-A couple of years ago while in a cooking rut I started along with my MIL and SIL's a cooking club. We would each pick one recipe to e-mail to each other every month. That way we had four new things to make. At the end of the month we would send our reviews of the recipes with our likes our dislikes, our successes, our changes, etc. We are doing it again and every Saturday I share those recipes with you to try out. Then at the beginning of the following month I post the reviews and recaps of each recipe; and I also feature any of my readers who try the recipe and leave a review.
  • Ten Things to Smile About- At the end of the month I like to look back and remember the good/funny things of the month and write a list of ten things. You can join along and link up with your list. This month, Mr. Linkey will be up on Tuesday the 27th for you to share your list. And pictures are NOT required; I just like taking pictures.
So those are a few of the main things on my blog, feel free to look around and comment. I always try to visit anyone's blog who comments on mine.
Oh, and a little birdie told me that part of the reason I was Tickled Pink today was thanks to my wonderful cousin-in-law Lourie of CA Girl who nominated me. (she and my husband are cousins)

And well...last night's dinner conversation ended up being quite timely with this nomination.

Lucas: (randomly during dinner) "Who am I going to marry when I get older?"
Eric: "Probably some nice girl we don't even know yet."
Me: "Who do you think?"
Lucas: "Maybe Emily"
Me: "Me?"
Lucas: "No Ryan's sister Emily" (CA Girl's daughter)
Me: "You can't marry her, she's your cousin. So you can't marry her just like you can't marry your sister."
Lucas: "But then who am I going to marry?"
Alex: "I'm going to marry myself."

My two kids
Lucas wants to marry his cousin... Alex, well herself


  1. Congrats on being Tickled Pink! (I personally think that's just as important a day as a SITS day! ;)

    I loved the conversation around the dinner table- kids really do say the darnedest things!

  2. Stopping by and following from Holly's blog! She gave you such a good recommendation that I couldn' resist!

  3. I don't know how you ever stop laughing with those two!! :)

  4. You deserve this feature cause you are awesome. :)

  5. I love the things that kids say. Have a great day

  6. Oh, I totally needed cute kid comments this morning. :)

  7. Yay! Congratulations Emmy! Love the kid conversation ;)

  8. Awwww! That is so cute. hahaha. I suppose if we lived somewhere in the south, that would be acceptable. Marrying yourself...hmmm, haven't heard anything on that one. ;)

    And congrats on being Tickled Pink!!! I have been looking forward to your day.

  9. That's so funny that Alex said she wanted to marry herself! Ballerina thinks she's going to marry a boy from church because he is always proposing. :)

  10. Nathan wants to marry his cousin too. He really could though because she is his 4th but I've told him that would just be WAY too weird!

  11. I cant blame Alex for wanting to marry herself. Id marry myself too, Im pretty easy to leave with.

  12. Hey Emmy-

    Just wanted to say Hi and thank you for letting me tickle you pink...that sounds kind of marrying your cousin...

  13. Congrats on being tickled. But what tickled me is your photo's caption, I giggled outloud!

  14. HA, your kids are hilarious! Kids say the darndest things ;)

  15. At least if she marries herself, she will always be working to make her wife happy! I don't know how that would work in the eternal perspective but she may be on to something! heehee

  16. Congrats on your nomination! And that is too funny!

  17. Hey..can you email me your email address so I can get you the GTKY questions..for some reason I can't access your email..


    Have a fabulous weekend!! :-)

  18. Oh and one more thing..

    Congrats on being tickled pink!!

  19. Congrats!
    I feel like Alex.
    I laugh at my own jokes so I could marry me.

  20. Congrats on being Tickled Pink! I've been a fan of your blog for awhile! :)

  21. Hahaha!
    Kids always have the best things to say!
    I could listen to them the whole darn day!
    (I just accidentally wrote that poem for you)

  22. My hubby wanted to marry his cousin too! Good thing he didn't...

  23. What an awesome feature! Very cool! I'm feel special just being your sister-in-law! ;)


    And the marriage conversations just kills me. So funny. I don't think Ethan's ever asked something like that before.

  24. Congrats on your feature. Love the convo with your kids. So cute!

  25. Oh Em...I loved the story around the table...your kids rock! AND...I grabbed it for the book...

  26. How fun!! A cooking club with your MIL & SIL. My mom gave me all her recipes she has gathered over the years. Most are handwritten. They will be treasured for many years, I am sure.
