Me... in a magazine!

If you follow me on facebook or twitter, you might have seen me mention this last week.

I was so flattered a while back when I was asked by Wichita Family Magazine if they could do a feature story on me.

Lots of celebrities wear our jewelry, we've placed ads in magazines, and the business is growing daily. But to just feature me?! That's wild. And crazy. And cool. And very flattering.

Click here to read the entire interview. There's even talk about the blog!
That's how much I love you guys.
Love you even more than my coffee. Maybe. Almost.






Now, lest you start thinking I'm some kind of amazing mom who has it all together (and I know you were on the verge of thinking such things), just know that I forgot to bring my kids home from church yesterday.

Yeah, I really did.
Didn't even know it until I got home.

At least they were in God's hands...

Ok, i had to laugh that you left your kids at church...as i am quite sure it is going to happen to me one of these days :) at least it's a safe place :)

Congratulations on being in a magazine! And yes, I was jealous a tad bit on what a great mom you are...now I feel more equal again. I did the reverse, and accidently picked up my kids and neice and nephew from school recently on the wrong day! This comes from a long time ago, when I accidently left my kindergartener at school and had to get a phone call from the school to let me know...so embarrassing. So I promised I would never forget my or anyone else's kids again! Smile today. Good story! :)

On a side note, what do you do when someone you know is harrassing you on your own blog? I'm pretty sure it's my ex-mother-in-law! Isn't that sad?

What a great feature! You deserve it; your items are just beautiful!

And how funny that you forgot your kids. I haven't done that yet but it'll happen, I'm sure.

That's awesome to be featured in a magazine! Congratulations!

As for leaving your kids at church . . . well, sometimes I have to double-check to make sure I put the baby in the car. After I've already driven miles. I haven't forgotten her yet, but it's a little scary that I don't actually remember putting her into the car.

You said it best - they're in God's hands, and thank goodness for that :)

Congrats on the magazine article and thanks for making me spew my trailmix I was eating at the time of reading this post! Love it! If it's any comfort, I gave up on getting the mother of the year award a loooong time ago! :)

Okay, these are the things that came to mind while reading the article:
I can say I knew her when...
I can say I own some of her jewelry...
I can say I saw pictures of her bad baby when he was still bad and still a baby...
I can say a lot of things but most of all I thought...this is great...couldn't happen to a nicer person because it won't change her a bit!
Then I came back and read what you wrote under the pictures and realized that I was right...you won't change a bit... and I'm thanking God for that!
Congratulations!

Kristi said...

ah, that's cute - you're normal just like us! Just this last Sunday at church I was filling in the form to enroll my kids in sunday school for the next year and drew a complete blank on the line that said parents name.

Congrats on the magazine! Uh, I had to laugh "At least they were in God's hands". I know a woman that once left her youngest at the grocery store.

Jess said...

You rock! The story turned out so great! Thanks for your openness!

Darling Beki,

I laugh and I cry...

I love you and couldn't be more proud!! Congrats on the magazine article. I read every word with tears in my eyes.

umm... to all out there, she gets the "forgetting kids" thing honestly. The "mom" and I got home from church one sunday each of us thinking the other had picked up our little sleeping girl but, surpise, surprise neither had. So, we rushed back to church and there was our little one in all her blonde glory sleeping under the pew.

Keep up the good work and may God continue to richly bless you and you family.

Dad

Oh..you bring me smiles. The adventures your children and life give you are fun to see. You will be thankful you have documented this. I wish my mom had kept the letters I wrote to my folks about my child raising years and kid's adventures. alas..hindsight. It was still good years. ( my babies are 30, 27, and 21)

Wow, on the magazine. good job, you and God.
But the tender note from your daddy, ...brings tears. Such a gift a loving family is.

You're doing a good job little momma. It's all worth it.
