.:Market Yourself Monday–Diet Coke Glitterblast Sign:.

Happy Father’s Day!

I hope you are spending the day celebrating the special dads that are in your lives! I know we are!

We started off our morning with a highly caloric meal, just for Daddy. The girls gave Daddy his gifts and the cards they made them, and I think those cards might be his favorite part! My four year old is just starting to draw people, and it’s basically the cutest thing ever. For Daddy’s card, she added his spikey hair – the first time she’s done hair on a picture! Super cute.

We had church, and then we’ll be off to a family dinner in a bit here. Which usually means I don’t have to do much with my kids because their favorite person – their Aunt Em – will be there and she pretty much takes them off our hands at any family function. (This might not always be willingly, but she does it regardless; they adore her!)

But in the spirit of Father’s Day, I just have to share how blessed I am to have this guy as the father to my girls. He works long hours every day, and still comes in the door ready to play with them and help with them. And the reaction of squeals and excitement that he gets every evening when he comes home is an indicator of how they feel about him! He’s such a hard worker, and a great example to our girls, and we’re all pretty happy (and smug) to call him ours!

(With each of our girls as brand new babies! Harper is on top, Reece bottom left, Remi bottom right).

On top of an amazing husband, I’ve got an amazing Dad. He’s the one who taught me what was important when looking for a spouse. He cherishes my mom, and was always there for each of us growing up. My dad is a pretty important and busy guy, but he always made sure to be at our games and recitals. He has always put family first,  even though he somehow got stuck with our crazy family, (We’re slowly turning him over to our weirdness!) My girls love their Grandpa Paul, and we all love PSTEW!



I’ve also been blessed with two fabulous father in laws, and I’m grateful to each of them for the parts they played in shaping who my husband is. They are great grandpas, and my girls adore them both!

Okay, okay. Mushy, mushy, I know, but it’s okay to get a little personal on here sometimes, right?

Well, let’s get partying, shall we?

This week, I’m sharing this Diet Coke sign that I made. We all know that I have a love of Diet Coke. Bordering perhaps on addiction, but that just makes it sound bad, so we’ll call it love.


I’ll show you how I made it tomorrow!
