Happy Wednesday everyone!! Its been several weeks since I linked up for:
So it's nice to be back!
I really have SO MUCH to be thankful for this week, considering we are celebrating THREE birthdays and an Anniversary. My niece Nia is going to be FIVE years old on Friday and my Grandma is going to be 85 years old on Sunday. Eric and I will also be celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary this Saturday and TODAY is my Mamacita's birthday!!! The big 5-8 (opposite of Grams. Ha!).
My mom didn't ask for much this year, but one thing she did ask for is a video of the kids singing. Now, I seriously tried 4 different times to get both kids to talk and/or sing together, and this last time was the FUNNIEST and sweetest of them all. Oh, Blake. I actually planned to say more at the end of this video but I ended it before anyone had a meltdown so...you know...you can thank me for that later.
So without further ado...here are the vocal stylings of my two sweet kiddies.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NANA!!! WE LOVE YOU BUNCHES!!!!
Now...like I said quickly in my video, the real theme of Stop & Smell the Roses this week is Life Insurance, or rather the importance of Life Insurance, and Mandy & Jeff are asking one big question:
To be honest...I think there is really only one answer to this question.
Life Insurance is important because it is another way to take care of the people we love.
We are celebrating my Grandma's 85th birthday and she tells me all the time how LUCKY she is to have had such a full life so far. She has been able to take care of her own children, her grand children and now her great grand children. And because she made the right finical decisions, she is going to be able to take care of all of us even after she is gone.
I know that's a goal for my parents and it's definitely a goal for Eric and I too. But I didn't realize how important life insurance was until someone explained it to me. And that's what I think this movement is all about. Informing people and spreading the word. So I encourage all of you to visit my friend Jeff's blog and learn more about the Life Insurance Movement and of course visit House of Rose today to enter to win some FABULOUS prizes for joining in on the conversation. Word on the street is that he busts out some pretty sweet dance moves for the occasion :-)
