Owl be honest with you. It's me!
About five weeks ago I was shopping at Joanne Fabrics and came across an adorable owl dish towel.
There was only one. I bought it.
On the way home I debated with myself.
Keep the owl towel, or give it to our daughter who really, really likes owl stuff.
I gave it to my daughter.
Cuz, yeah, that's the kind of mom I am.
A week or so after the gift of the owl towel, we were invited to the same daughter's house for dinner with the rest of the family. Her husband and she prepared a sumptious repast (aided perhaps by the cute owl towel hanging over the kitchen cupboard!)
After we ate, she brought out two small gifts. One for my husband and I and one for her grandparents.
I was excited.
I'm not sure why my head said, 'owl dish towel', but it did.
I have faulty wiring like that.
We opened up the little gifts and there was no owl dish towel inside.
There was this.
I cried. I laughed. I cried some more.
Cuz, yeah. I am an emotional wreck about things like that.
She is due in March and her little bump is growing bigger each week. We are all totally excited.
And to be totally honest, here...
I'm not even a LITTLE disappointed that she didn't give me an owl towel.
In the spirit of sharing wonderful news, though, I would like to do a giveaway for two brand new owl cotton dishtowels!
