Seven Quick Takes November 20, 2009
I’ve read this bloggy carnival over at Conversion Diary before, but never taken part. Well, today it is the perfect thing for me, since I have some random things to mention, but not much of a coherent post.
1. I missed my own 2nd Blogiversary. Oops. Does a blogiversary count when you only post about once a week? These last few months have been insane, I tell you, and blogging really was on the back burner. I’ve missed it, and I’ve missed my usual rounds and comment-making.
2. My blogroll disappeared at some point. Maybe it was during a WordPress upgrade? I don’t know, but all my linky love is gone. I hope to resurrect that sometime in the near future, and maybe even update it a bit!
3. A guest poster (whom I love dearly) will be sharing here on Monday how to make lefse! I can’t wait for you to read her tutorial and see all the fantastic step-by-step photos to go with it. Also, remember that day will be the drawing for the Disney on Ice tickets, so sign up while you can!
4. Pioneer Woman is here in the Twin Cities tomorrow! Anyone else going to meet her or get your cookbook signed?
5. Another thing I’ve been slacking on is Anja’s monthly progress updates. She has changed so much since her 23-month post (since she’s now almost 27 months!), and I have so much to share. Be prepared for a doozy of those coming up!
6. Though I haven’t had the mind to put up any Christmas decorations yet, we’ve been listening to Christmas music around here for several weeks. I have several favorite CDs that get played over and over. Any you’d recommend I add to my collection? I budgeted for one new CD this year. Speaking of which, if you haven’t been over to see Tsh’s 12 Days to a Peaceful Christmas, I highly suggest you go. We’ve been using it to plan our holiday season. Probably my favorite exercise she’s had us do is describe our ideal holiday and make a plan to celebrate in such a way.
7. What are you doing for Thanksgiving? Do you have any family traditions?
And a photo of my girly girl, dancing in her tutu and jammies…
I Heart Faces – Autumn Beauty November 16, 2009
It’s been ages since I’ve had time or an appropriate photo to share on I Heart Faces. I still read their posts every week, but this week I have this lovely photo of Anja in a sea of pumpkins. Isn’t it fun? She was just enamored, and went around telling us which ones were big, which were small, and telling us which ones she wanted.

Disney on Ice Princess Classics – Giveaway! November 13, 2009
When my firstborn turned out to be a girl (I thought she was a boy—and was I ever wrong!), my main concern was, “What if she’s really girly and I can’t relate?” Turns out she IS quite girly. She’ll ask for a tutu so she can dance if I have music on, she grabs my makeup brushes and puts “pink on her cheeks,” and just yesterday she asked if she could wear a pretty dress to “be like a princess.” I don’t really ever talk to her about princesses, so I have no idea where she gets these ideas!
That said, we’ll be taking her to the Disney on Ice Princess Classics show when it comes to the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul December 10-13. And you can take your family, too! I have a package of four tickets to opening night (December 10 at 7:00 p.m.) of Disney on Ice to give away to one blessed reader! Simply leave a comment if you’re interested in winning, and I will randomly select a winner on Monday, November 23. If you’d like an additional entry, blog about the giveaway and leave a link to your post (not your blog home page, but the actual post) in the comments.
Additionally, if you would like to purchase your own tickets, here is a chance for a discount. Use the coupon code “MOM” to receive four tickets for $44 for weekday shows Monday-Friday and $4 off all tickets for weekend shows. The discounted tickets can be purchased from Ticketmaster by entering the “MOM” code in the “MC promotion” box. Small print stuff: Offer not valid on Rinkside or VIP seating. Cannot be combined with other offers. Service Charges, facility & handling fees will apply. Here are the showtimes:

Saturday, Dec. 12 – 11:00 a.m., 3:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m.
Sunday, Dec. 13 – 1:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m.
I’m looking forward to taking in this event with my family (Husband? Aren’t you going to just LOVE it?), and I hope you can make it, too!
I Heart Faces – Wedding Bells June 29, 2009
I didn’t share this particular photo on my photography website, but it’s one of my favorites from a wedding I shot in May of this year. I am happy to enter it in this week’s I Heart Faces contest. These were the fun, just-finished-the-ceremony shots, and you can see the joy on their faces!
Pop on over there to be inspired!
