Maggie's Memos: Whoo-hoo!!!!! 25 Followers!! :)


Wow, we finally hit 25 followers!  That means we're catching up to Mama (she's up to 52 as of today...it was 53 yesterday, or so she claims).  So Tess and I just wanted to send a big thank you out there to all of our wonderful followers.  We've had a great time sharing our thoughts and opinions.  It's nice to know someone actually cares enough to read them.  :}  

So, Mama talked about her next goal being 100 followers.  I think she needs a nice dose of reality.  But, the goal idea is a nice one.  Tess and I decided maybe we should have a goal too.  We'd be happy to reach 50 followers...that's more than we ever expected.  In fact, last October we were actually thinking about quitting.  We only had 2 or 3 followers, and things were rough.  Now we're so thankful we stuck with it!  This blog has become more successful than we ever dreamed it could be when we were struggling in October. :)  I guess it just goes to show you...don't quit!  You never know what the future may hold. :)

I guess that's about it.  If you're hoping for some super-duper surprise or giveaway or something, tough potatoes.  This is creative as I get after a full weekend.  Oh, Tess is suggesting we post a few pics of Emma and Charlie's day outside yesterday.  I don't know why we should do that, since WE weren't invited and this is a blog about US, but....OUCH!!  Okay, okay Tess.  I'm loading the pics now.  Man, that girl can pinch!!

So without further ado, here are some pics of Emma and Charlie enjoying the fresh air and sunshine, while the rest of us were stuck in our dark, stuffy room.  All I can say is Tess and I had better get some outside time pretty soon, or I'm going to go insane!!!!  I've totally got cabin fever...I might even have to sing the song if I get cooped up much longer.   (You know, from "Muppet Treasure Island"?  Come on, guys.  It's a classic...when you're in the right mood, that is!)






These pics and more will be featured in a future post, at least if Tess has anything to say about it! :}

Katie's interview is still in the works!!!  I know I keep saying this, but I haven't forgotten about it.  Just a matter of getting her completely recovered and editing my post.  Talk to you all soon!

Congrats on your 25 milestone! (You have more followers than we do, but we get it - we were really excited when we hit twelve so the whole space was filled in.)

;-)

Great pics.

Love,
The Green Girls

Thanks, girls! Yeah, Mama had this thing about having her followers section symmetrical when she was starting out. It drove her crazy when she was one follower away from a perfect row! :)

I'll pass your message about the pics on to Mama. She's been really enjoying experimenting with her camera.
