Winners and What's Going On

I want to thank each and every one of you who voted for Lily Bird in Friendship Circle's Great Bike Give Away.  While we didn't win, I was so touched by the outpouring of love and support from all of you.  There were so many deserving kiddos and I'm just so excited to hear how they do with their brand new bikes!

If you're interested in checking out the winners, click here.

Well, it's not a bike, but I did win something during the Ultimate Blog Party that I took part in last month.  It's called Time Dog and it's a virtual personal assistant service.  It's the coolest thing and I've got it free for a whole entire year!  I'll tell you more about it later but for now, have a look around their website. Be sure to watch the quick "How it Works" video and try not to be too jealous!

A few other things going on in the Rush house this week:

Our oldest daughter, Ryley, is graduating from high school.

Our middle daughter, Reagan, is taking her finals.

Ryan and I are visiting a potential school for the Bird.

And Ryan is tying up loose ends at work because he is taking off the entire month of June (Hallelujah and Amen!).

So this is a week of big stuff!

And yes, it gets a little nutty around here sometimes.

And yes, you should see people's faces when I tell them that this fall, I'm sending one daughter to college and one daughter to kindergarten.

And yes, sometimes my mom talks to me on the phone and then changes her plane ticket to come a week earlier than expected because I am temporarily losing my mind and she is worried about me.

And yes, sometimes my mom and I spend that extra week cleaning and organizing because while it might not help make decisions, it sure feels better when your closet is clean and your mom is close by.

But hey - that's how we roll around here.


  1. I'm sorry about the bike program... But a lot of really deserving kids were blessed with bikes... So you have to feel good about that. One of my other friends (the Roberts boy) didn't win a bike either, but he was selected for a gift of $500 toward a bike. The Friendship Circle is doing some amazing things and even if Lily was not selected, she is a winner in our hearts!

    1. I love The Friendship Circle! I'm always lurking around their blog...
