I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited for the weekend as I am this weekend.  It has been a long busy week at our house as we count down the days until the Road Warrior’s 2nd daughter’s wedding in the British Virgin Islands.  In true ‘ Our Big Busy Life‘ form we are also hosting an important Board dinner 3 days before that and a special birthday party 2 days after we return.  If you want to keep up be sure to follow me on Instagram or join the TMD Facebook page where I will no doubt be asking your opinion on many things.

Did you know that in 5-7 days you could have your instagram or hipstomatic photograph imprinted on a chocolate bar?  I’m contemplating doing this for Pixie’s upcoming Candyland Birthday party. Do you think that would be cute or too over the top?

  2. That post about My Child is in a Mental Hospital was a good reminder to have the courage to speak out that you care… even if you don’t know what to say.

    I like the chocolate bar idea because it is fun. I just wonder if they would be tasty?
