Matter the Most Monday 2010...

a bit eager i guess...i am posting a day early...

I am going to stay loyal this year to my Monday's post of little things that matter to me - things that might have happened the week before that I am grateful for or just little things that I need to open my eyes a bitter wider and recognize.  As I read a lot of the opening new year blog posts, many people have chosen one word to apply to their year.. 
to name a few.
I am not sure I can choose JUST one word - I am not organized enough to get to just one word. So going back to my new year's post of being a SUPER MOM and not SUPERMOM, my one word will be

does that work?
So with that in mind, here are  my little things of the week that mattered the most...

1. I've now played Candy Land with the girls 4 times in two days - just as the Hasbro wording says on the side of the box "when its time for us, nothing else matters." I think Hasbro stole those words right out of my girls' mouths.

2. We've had quality neighborhood time this past week -princess new years eve party, hanging out with neighbors to ring in the new year (well, we toasted at 9pm, 12 am New York time when the ball dropped that still counts, right?) and "scootering" with all the kids and their scooters and bikes in the cul-de-sac

3. Although a bit chaotic because of the computer freezing on us, we used the web cam with my parents and Grandma on new Year's Day - something we fail to do often enough -Learning SKYPE is a goal of mine this week! How great is was to see their faces, even if they were frozen in time for a bit.

 4. a fresh start, a new year, a new white calendar to follow...welcome 2010. a chance to soak in these little moments for another year!

now off to that skype website so I don't make a liar out of myself...

and thanks Graphics Fairy for my fun picture for my Monday logo.


  1. I love that idea... Matter the Most Mondays. That is a great way to start the week. Candy Land... gets you sucked in, doesn't it? We have been on a Mexican train kick and loving it! :)

  2. word cannot embrace one's true intentions. I believe in a theme or a quote for the year to keep one on track.
    Living it up at Lakewood,

  3. Great "one word" for the new year--who can really compress so much into one word? I'm too much of a chatter box.


  4. You'll love Skype! It's really easy to use, and you can even use it for free phone calls.

  5. I think this year I have learned to slow down a bit.....but then I seem to go into hyper mode because I've been in slow down mode too long:)) lol
    Sounds like you have your priorities right!

  6. Jen, Becca here from Blue Cricket! I would love for you to post and link your Blue Frame! That always makes my day! Send me an email when you get it up and I'll show off your skills on BCD!!! Take care!

  7. Such a lovely idea! I'm so glad you were able to use the little fairy for your button, it turned out so pretty! Thanks so much for sharing it for "Brag Monday".

  8. This is a nice graphic. (And Skype is easy to use!)

  9. The collage for your button is very pretty - and I love that soft green. Choosing one word would be tough!

  10. Your blog button turn out fabulous - Visiting from the Graphics Fairy. I love the colors you used...stunning.


admit it! comments make your day! i'd love to hear what you have to say!
