What I Whipped Up Wednesday- Week 16...

...will be postponed until Friday February 25th.
It will open at 12:01 AM (PST) on Friday, and close on Monday at 11:59 PM (PST).

I have some good news, and I have some bad news...

The good news is that there are two fun new sponsors here at Sugar and Dots!
Meet Lauren. She calls herself "the girl behind the trunk" and I adore her blog! She also has a fab Etsy shop full of fun goodies to satisfy the inner-hostess in you!
Meet Courtney. She's actually the sister-in-law of one of my childhood friends. Even if I didn't know her IRL, I would be stalking her Etsy shop for her crazy cute home decor and kids items! And, she has a new Facebook page- yay!
I'm actually thrilled to welcome them this very second! Not only are their products adorable, but right now, I could use some happiness.

The bad news is that today marks the five year anniversary of the worst day of my life.
I need this banner like no other.

Today I will grieve and try to keep myself crazy busy to avoid breakdowns in public like every other year.
And, I will be spending some time with a representative from our car insurance company.
Remember how I recently survived 5 weeks without my car while they completed $12,368.25 in damage from my accident at the beginning of 2011?
Well, 11 days after getting my car back, today I was hit while taking my daughter to school.
We were parked.
The hit was hard, and it was early and 45 degrees, so I think we felt the impact more than we should have, but we're okay.
As if life couldn't bring me down any more.

Today, please forgive me in the delay of the linky party.
I just need to focus on remembering our angel baby and trying to pick up the pieces of our forever-crumbling lives.



  1. Oh Kimmie, I am so sorry.. As a fairly new follower I hadn't ever read that post. I always feel like I don't know what to say in these situations, that what I say will come out wrong..
    I hope you can have peace on this day..

  2. I to am a new follower. Just tons of hugs coming your way dear! :)

  3. Kimmie! That is horrible. I wish you the best of luck and thinking about you.

  4. Hey Kimmie. I usually brake into song when I'm feeling down. Here is a great song. (doesn't fir your story but still a good one)

  5. I'll be sending you some good energy and thinking of you today.

  6. Oh girl, I don't know your story of 5 years ago...but that's besides the point. Praying on ya, and just go and have your day...however you may have it.

  7. I just read your post and it brought me to tears. 8 months ago my sister-in-law lost twins at 25 weeks. I know how difficult it was for her and our whole family. You will never fully heal, but try remember the joy that baby brought you, for even a short time.

  8. I am so sorry Kimmie. My thoughts and prayers are with you today. Riley is in our thoughts as well. I wish I could hug you and help you out today. Take time for yourself and lean on your loved one. I hope you can find peace on this awful day.

  9. It's so hard to find comforting words... You ARE brave and strong... I may not know you personally, but I feel the need to hug you and your family. Have your day to remember.

  10. I just read your story and my heart aches for you. Thinking of you and your sweet Riley today.

  11. I'm so sorry Kimmie!!! Happy thoughts being sent your way all day long!!!

  12. Hi there. I was sent over here by Fingerprints on the Fridge. I read your story, which brought me to tears. I will be praying for you and your family to be strong through this time, even though I know it's very hard to be.

    I am now your newest follower!
