wearing purple ... thinking purple ... and rtt ...

wearing purple for maddie and her parents today.
my purple shirt and donations ... just don't feel like enough.
(i'll post a picture later ... i completely forgot the cord that allows my camera to connect to the computer to show our purple support ... i promise ... it will come.)

and i'm thinking purple ...
and attempting to figure out if i can plant purple tulips to remind me each spring of maddie and the idea that i need to grasp every second that i can ... and hold tightly onto it ... because these seconds and minutes are fleeting. and oh-so-completely not guaranteed.
finally asking the know-it-all google and realizing that tulips must be planted in the fall ... and i'm so determined to get some purple out there to remind me every morning. so, i'm thinking that a purple hanging plant will have to do ... and puple hued tulip bulbs are on my must do list for the fall.

and because it's tuesday ... and i can hardly grasp random right now ... a random list of 15 crazy things that bring people to this little place in the blogging world dedicated to me and my family.

1. mamamamamamamamamamamammamamamamamamamamamama
-- this post gets hit more than any other post ... which i think means that cora's previously annoying "mama" over and over and over again ... is something that others related to? god, i miss that ...
2. yo mama jokes the average human will eat 8 spiders while sleeping, but yo mama will probably eat more
-- i don't even know what to say. i know absolutely NOTHING about yo mama jokes.
3. coconut belly
-- someone was looking for me! or else attempting to find out more about a diagnosis of coconut belly ... apparently there is such a thing.
4. lyrics spin cycle out this way
-- i'm thinking they were at the wrong place.
5. when to pick coconuts
-- ok, yep ... the wrong place ... nothing really coconuty here. and definitely no information about the picking of coconuts.
6. mamamamamamamamamamamamam
-- see ... i told you.
7. belly pushing
-- i don't really even want to ask.
8. peeky boo
-- lovely game, isn't it?
9. coconut belly
-- me, again!
10. coconut belly
-- and again!
11. mamamamamamamamamamamamam
-- did i mention the popularity of this post?
12. mamamamamamamamamamamamam
-- really ... not one of my best posts ...
13. coconut belly blog
-- i wonder if this is my husband forgetting the blog address when he's out of town.
14. crabbiest toddler
-- apparently i'm known for having the crabbiest toddler? awesome.
15. that's how i know that it's time to be great, lyrics
-- i don't know this song ... you'll have to check elsewhere.

head on over to keely's place ... for more random.

Hm, Spin Cycle got a mention? Or is my ego bigger than my... never mind.
Purple is a beautiful color.

I know, I have been thinking about little Maddie and her family today.

I wanted to let you know that you won my 200th post giveaway. If you will email me your address, I will send it out to you!

Although I never knew of Maddie until last week, I can't get her out of my head. I bawled tonight when I watched the montage her parents made and read their posts about her. Elliot and I wore purple today..

I've gotten a couple spin cycle searches to me too. I also got "Dental Maven" once and I"m like, um, no...she has her OWN blog...I think it's called something whacky like, oh, "Dental Maven".

The amount of purple and the amount of support for that family is overwhelming. I've been reading a lot of blog posts through tears this week.
