Well.........knock me over

My husband usually brings in the mail when he arrives home from his long day working. He places it on the counter and I will usually thumb through it as we chat about the day. If you're like me........you're a bit addicted to magazines. I love magazines. You don't even have to read if you don't want to.........lots of pretty pictures to keep you entertained. Yesterday in the mail, there's this thick mag.........I thought it was one of my boring professional ones toting the latest workout to make your stomach flat.....Let me tell you right now as a fitness professional.........if your stomach has never been flat..........it's never going to be flat.....women are supposed to have a bit of a belly........really............we were designed like that.........all these women who have these 6 pack abs.......freaks.........as my husband said to me once about women like that.........I think it was on our honeymoon.......on a boat with a group of models........in small bikini's............he leaned over and whispered in my ear "one cold would wipe them out" ..............Now you know why I married him.
Anyhooo...........distracted again.........I see this large mag in a plastic wrapper.........that always irritates me too........not recyclable..........I open it up........it's not my boring professional mag/journal...........it's the Artful Blogging magazine..........it's heavy, it's pretty.........I spend a few minutes stunned, trying to figure out why I got this........swearing to my husband I did NOT order another subscription..........as I am flipping through it, I see............I see my "D" with Flat Betty. "Hey that's MY house!"

It was months ago that I had to submit some photos to Artful Blogger magazine for Megan with Flat Betty...........so it's not actually about me...........but one of my photos is in it and it mentions my name and blog! EXCITING!
And you guys must have read my mind yesterday............I wasn't going to do another post until I heard from 20 people...........How else do I know if your reading? How that site counter thingy over there.........oh yea I guess there's that.

CONGRATULATIONS on your fame!
YOU DESERVE IT!
You know that we all check in on you.
It's just that we don't always let you know, in writing, just how much we love you!

Congrats to you! What a fun life you must have. I hope you didn't sleep a wink - out of sheer excitement of course! You are awesome!

Ooh, I'm liking the look of that magazine. With hubby away another subscription wouldn't be noticed ...mmmmmm

Stephanie said...

I am a newbie to blogging, but you were one of my first inspirations. I even used Lena's blog design which I got from your site. Thank you! Your site gave me a chance to look at other bloggers and be inspired by all the beautiful creative people in this world!!

Congratulations! I have recently gotten into blogging. Have really started enjoying it. And as a fitness instructor & PT myself, I agree, there are no flat bellies out there. Brittney Spears in her finest day did not have a flat belly. And (big AND here) just b/c someone has a no fat or a concave belly does not mean they are keeping it engaged while working out.

Great site here! I love it!

Alecia said...

So very cool and exciting!! Congrats to you... what a FAB surprise!!

Melanie Gray Augustin said...

That's so exciting! Well done. Hopefully my copy of the magazine should arrive soon so I can see it for myself ;)

Oh, and I know what you mean about all those flat abs magazines. My hubby is a personal trainer so there are lots of those around the apartment.

Hope said...

How cool is that to receive a mysterious magazine and flip it open and see your house. Congrats! And I view everyday I just don't comment enough. I'll try to be better.

Holly said...

Whew! I'm just back from a little RnR and come home to find you SUPER busy and FAMOUS-ER than ever! Your D looks good girl! I love those mags... They are FULL of eye candy!

Congrats on your Artful Blogging feature! I love Somerset Memories and all their magazines. I recently was told that they are going to do a four page spread on an album I made for Somerset Memories and a few of my photos were accepted for the Life Images Magazine. I am so excited for you! They are such great people too! Keep up the great work and thanks for inspiring us all! Shelley

KarenB said...

How awesome to be mentioned in Artful Blogging! That magazine drew me in and now I'm one of the crowd! Why is it so dang expensive? That's why it's so beautiful, I guess. I enjoy your blog, especially your sidetrackedness. ;-) By the way, I have a similar addiction to magazines, it had it's own special blog post the other day.
Great job! Karen B.

Melody said...

Wow what an honor. Know where I could get a copy of that magazine? I've never seen that one before. I love the look of it though and I'd love to have the copy with you in it.

Sorry I've been MIA from blog commenting lately. Life has just....well got in the way. I've not been online as much as I would have liked to be. I got a couple custom orders over the past two weeks and I've been working hard on them too.

Blessings....

Stephanie said...

That is so exciting! Congratulations!! I have to admit that I don't always comment because I'm so excited about your posts that I click on the blog you're featuring and it takes me away from yours. I'll try to be better :)
