Annie is in Good Housekeeping!!!





    Last night, I was checking my email & I got this sweet comment from another Libby (My Life on Earth)...

Uh. Where on earth did I miss on your blog that you are in Good Housekeeping, page 199... Annie's Bracelets!!! You know, I thought...wow that little girl looks familiar...and then...I thought... wow, that mom looks familiar...and then... I saw...Libbie...and I was like... um... she looks like Libbie... and then there was your blog address... do you have that the fact you're in this issue of Good Housekeeping.. actually the June issue... on here... ???



Your a Superstar.... Super duper star... wow... come sign my blog so I can have your autograph... !! WOW.... I'm deeply impressed... my mouth is still on the floor but I'll pick it up now....
 
She is so sweet!   She made my night! 
 
    Expecting to be in the July issue I was so surprised and JOYFUL!!!  I wrote a quick note back, jumped in the car & bought a whole stack!!!   It was REALLY hard not to wake up Annie & tell her!!!  I stayed up late getting a little party ready for this morning. 
 
 
   I had to run to the grocery store again very early this morning.  I was so excited & I was telling the cashier, who was super excited too.  We were talking so much that I loaded all the groceries back into my cart without bagging them & I didn't even notice until I got out to my car & had 50 dollars worth of groceries unbagged.  What a dork I am!!! 
 
Anyway, we had such a FUN morning here!!!
 
Annie just thought she was lucky to be able to stand on the counter!

We wrote messages to her on these flowers:

Annie noticed she also has a little pic on p.17.

    She signed a few copies.  This one is for her Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Meyers.



Then, Nana & Boppa joined us for the Breakfast Party.  They brought flowers & balloons & their copy to be signed :)





We all  feel pretty blessed today.
Thank you Lord!!!

And off to school she went!

Thanks again friends for your encouragement!!!

So mad that I accidentally got the May issue when I ran to the store last night as it was closing. Will have to go back today for a JUNE Good Housekeeping! :) So proud of Annie & her mom!

Marla said...

Ok, Libbie. I am sitting here bawling my head off. I am crying because of what a great mom you are. And because of the amazing daughter you are raising. And because that boy is such a stinker and I love him like Fiddle Faddle. And where's the baby? I want to steal him, too.

Seriously, I feel so incredibly blessed to know you and your family. How in the world did you people sneak into my heart so quickly?

Going to buy magazines now......

They call me "Deb" said...

I don't know whether to laugh here or cry! I do know for certain that I am going to go out and get the June issue!!!!!!
Ohhh what can I say? "GO ANNIE!! We are so proud of you!" I imagine I'd have forgotten to bag my groceries too! How exciting! (Well poosh... I can't help but keep putting exclamations marks at the end of everything!!!)
May God bless you and Annie and your wonderful, beautiful, God-filled family.
HUGS!!!!!
Deb

Kristin said...

That is wonderful! Congratulations! It looks like you had a wonderful celebration for her this morning!

Auntie Cake said...

Just wondering why the firemen and I weren't invited to your little celebration party this morning... Wait, maybe it's because Little Fireman doesn't wake up until 8:00 AM, about the time your party ended.

Well, totally super cool I need to go buy a copy and have that girl sign ours. Captain Awesome is the most excited of course, I am quite sure he will be calling you as soon as he gets out of school!

Rosie said...

LibbyLibbyLibbyLibbyLibby said...

And you know what???? I don't even usually get Good Housekeeping, it was actually just one of those spur of the moment grab a magazine type things! :-) And Yeah she is on page 17 and I saw her and a little light went off on 'familiar'... but the pages kept turning because its not like any remote part of my brain would even connect the dots on Annie and you being in Good Housekeeping...This has just made me sooo thrilled with a HUGE smile, ear to ear grin! Annie is remarkable, a beautiful beautiful heart! SupahStar!

LibbyLibbyLibbyLibbyLibby said...

And I just want to mention that I think your kitchen should appear in the July edition of Good Housekeeping...!!!

Karen said...

Oh, my, I have to run out right now, this very minute and buy one! I know somebody famous and they got that way for doing good!!! Yippeeee! I'm honored to have a couple of those heart-strung bracelets. Congratulations to you and Annie!!

Totally have to grab me a copy. She is so precious. Congrats Annie.

Jessie Thompson said...

I got so teary-eyed when reading this for two reasons:
1. This is such a big day for Annie and one she will never forget! I am so excited and proud of her!
2. You are the best mom on Earth to go out of your way to make it even more special. I am touched by the effort you put into motherhood. You are a fine example for the rest of us.

Chrissy said...

I AM SO JEALOUS! First of all, 'cause you've got that cute curly-haired girl. And secondly because you're in Good Housekeeping! Picking it up tomorrow when I'm out doing my errands! :)

Hope to see you soon!

Angela said...

DORK? I don't think so girl! My goodness gracious, don't even ask how many magazines I would buy if I was in it,lol. Seriously, don't ask..blush blush.

Your daughter is just adorable. My goodness, she made my heart melt. Guess what I'm going to be doing and buying when I go to Walmart? And I will be telling everyone when I show them the article,,"I know her"..lol...

koralee said...

Cottage Way of Life said...

Congrats to Annie (and you)! I'm going to have to make a point of looking for that issue of Good Housekeeping. Oh, and Annie looks super adorable posing up on the kitchen counter with "her" magazine (pretty cute autographing them too)!

OMG how exciting and wonderful is this news. I can not even imagine how excited you guys are...this is the best news I have heard in a very long time. Can not wait to go to the store and get my copies. Tell Annie I am sending her mine so she can autograph it for me. Also tell her how very proud I am of her.
Can not wait to see it.
I will have to of course do a post about it soon because this is just awesome and what she did to get in the magazine is too. Kaci loved her bracelets. I will buy a copy for Kaci too.
Love the celebration and you tell that young lady to get down off that cabinet....take it from one that knows better....hahaha

T's Daily Treasures said...

Oh Libbie, that is so exciting! Annie is such a sweetheart. How absolutly adorable that she is signing one of the mags for her kindergarten teacher. I'll have to get an issue here. Ironically, the June issue won't arrive in Kuwait until probably July. Ha! Best wishes for your weekend and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! Blessings, Tammy

Bliss said...

I picked up an issue yesterday, and showed it to everyone I saw! Of course. they'd already heard about it so it was no surprise. The power of one (and her mom) is so great -- I bet Annie will inspire other youngsters to do good in this world.

Thanks for your comment about our snow. Got that extra bedroom ready? jk...so far.

Two Shades of Pink said...

OH MY WORD!!!!!!! It is already HERE? Good grief, you all must be over the MOON! Way to go Annie! You, sweet Annie girl, have inspired sooooo many people and most importantly you have loved others with the Love of Christ. This magazine article is an incredible encouragement yet how much sweeter is it knowing Jesus in heaven is so proud of you too? Libbie, I am so excited for you and I am so mad I just came back from Barnes and Noble and could have bought a copy while I was there. Just incredible and I could cry just remembering how moved I was was when she started doing those bracelets. Now I am just rambling on and on...so happy.

Rosie said...

Ahhh...thank you so much for the lovely mothers day wish...right back at ya...We are truly blessed...I have grown quite attached to your sweet little site...glad to have found you and A*N*N*I*E...xoxo Rosie

Love, Anita

Love and big hugs,
Karyn

Congratulations to you for raising such a kind hearted child! She is obviously a sweetie and what a totally infectious smile! It's so refreshing to know that in this day and age of many self centered adults and children who can't seem to focus and see projects to the end, we can see in you, a loving, dedicated and giving family.

Lynn Ruthkowski said...

I was so touched by the beautiful adorable little girl. How wonderful she is to want to help others at such a tender young age. I would like to help Annie make bracelets by donating beads I have that my grandchildren used to make crafts with when they were younger. They are all young adults now but I held onto the beads. Please let me know where I can send them. Thank you. God bless Annie.

Libbie said...

Hi Lynn...That is so sweet of you! I tried to contact you but it wouldn't let me click on you to send you a reply. Do you have an email address where I can reach you?

Thanks
Libbie
