We have a couple of items of business today. Follow along while I make this short and snappy.
ITEM OF BUSINESS #1: I've got just a few spots still open for Sponsorship in September. Hurry your little buns over to reserve your place. Think about it, September really is the best time to sponsor because now that I'm going back to work, I'll have a whole football field of students who will inevitably stalk me on twitter, find my blog, and start reading it religiously. Lots of potential traffic! Also, teenagers are idiots, you can tell them anything and they'll believe you, so I'm basically giving you 500 people who you can make do whatever you want. Who doesn't want 500 teenagers alongside their $8 sponsorship? Check out the deets here and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
ITEM #2: Eryka has been my blogging buddy since the early days. She was the first person I contacted about doing a post swap, and I tell you I was terrified out of my mind! Now she's opening her own shop and because she's a total doll face, she wants to give some away to you lovelies. She's giving away one shop item to three different people. Three winners, oh my, can you even imagine?!?

ITEM OF BUSINESS #3: A love story.
I fell in love with Hubs the weekend he mowed the lawn.
We'd been dating a mere three weeks. I took him home to meet my mom. She seemed impressed. Impressed enough to say, "Well, Greg, I hate to say this but if you're ready and willing, I do have some work for you."
"Could you mow the lawn?" She was obviously serious about this.
Hubs was confused, no doubt. He gave a quizzical look and stumbled just a bit before rebounding completely, "Sure... I'm here to work... afterall..."
The next morning, Hubs was up bright and early, making perfectly straight lines in the grass, back and forth, back and forth. He came in smelling like grass and sweat and man. I remember giving him a hug right then and there in the middle of the kitchen, thinking how sweet he was to mow the lawn of a woman who's daughter he barely knew.
And I thought, "I hope this man is around to mow the lawn for the rest of my life."
That's why when Hubs offered to mow my mom's lawn this week, I couldn't help but follow him out and watch as he mowed- cutting perfectly straight lines, back and forth. He gave me a small, boyfish wave that reminded me so much of that summer morning two years ago when I first fell in love.
