Yup. My favorite midnight snack is a little bowl of cereal. I've been in love with this Raisin Bran Crunch lately even if I'm not usually a raisin person. I had it while I looked at all these lovely Halloween tags in my Stamper's Sampler magazine. So many great ideas in this one. I also have a little story behind this long ice tea teaspoon I always use to eat my cereal with.
Long ago when my son was very young I got sick from a really bad migraine which I get now and then. I get so sick I throw up and have to stay in bed all day. My son is the sweetest thing and he will fuss over me and bring me soup or cereal once I feel like eating a bit. The first time he brought me soup he had it in a little bowl with this long spoon instead of a soup spoon. He had just opened a can and heated it in the microwave but he was so sweet and he had it on a little tray with a pretty napkin. It made me so happy and I felt so much better. Now whenever I use this spoon I think of the little bowl of soup my Sebastian made for me and it still makes my heart smile.
I was going to do the random number thingy tonight to pick the winner for my magazine giveaway then I remembered this little box I made to pick my Mad Tea Party winner last July. So I think I'll do that again instead which is so much more fun. I loved reading all your comments about your lovely homes and how you like to decorate. It sounds like most of us love the look of an all white room but we all agree that in the real world filled with pasta sauce and paint it just wouldn't work.
So I'll pick the winner tomorrow (or later since it is tomorrow) and do a fun post with it too.
I had to share this because I found this picture in my camera when I was transferring my cereal pic to my computer. Sebastian loves the show Ghost Hunters on SciFi and these are the Jason and Grant bobble head collectibles from the show. He's had Jason for a while but Grant just came in the mail yesterday. I guess he was so excited to finally have both he had to take a picture of them.
And here's my big guy about 2 weeks ago after begging me to take him to a pub where Amy Bruni, one of the girls from Ghost Hunters was signing autographs. He got to meet her and she signed a picture for him. I don't know how many moms take their 13 year olds to a pub to meet a pretty redhead but this was a lot of fun and Amy was very sweet to everyone. We had water and then went home.
Any of you have a favorite late night snack or sentimental spoon story?
Tell me I'm not the only cereal snacking midnight blogger out there.
Ok time to get some sleep before the sun comes up!
Tonight I'm grateful for....
Being a mom.
