Mr. Wonderfulest 2011!!

Well, it's high time I actually announced the newest Mr. Wonderfulest, dontcha think?!! I apologize for the delay...I wanted to be certain that I read them all, then life got in the way and it got delayed!

Anyway, thank you to all who submitted a post...I had so much fun reading about the amazing men in your lives. I cried, I laughed, and I smiled a whole, whole, whole bunch!
How did you all feel about the "Like" function? (Personally, I loved it...I would probably still be chewing my nails and pacing and sweating trying to figure out who to pick!!)

Without further ado, she who garnered the most "Likes" is:


Emily's post was one of the ones the elicited a tears from me. She and her husband experienced the best day of their lives and the worst day of their lives simultaneously. Seeing the photos of her husband with their son made me smile for their joy and made my heart ache knowing that there should be two babies in his arms.

Emily, your post was amazing! Thank you for submitting it! Contact me and I'll get your gift certificate out to you so you can enjoy some time with that Mr. Wonderfulest of yours!

Thank you, everyone, again for sharing your posts with us! I look forward to next year's contest!!


In other news, I had the most amazing dream last night! One of those dreams that is so fun and REAL that when I woke up, I was sad it didn't actually happen!!

It totally deserves it's own post though...later!


  1. WOW. What a beautiful tribute to a REAL father, a great husband, a man of God. I think you made a very good choice, Mama M. Very good indeed. :)

    But I also wanna kick your butt. Here I am on vacation and you done gone and made me cry!

  2. GREAT choice! I do not know her and only saw her blog through the Mr. Wonderful contest. I too shed some tears over her post. I was really pulling the one!

  3. I'm still crying over that post. What a beautiful tribute to an obviously wonderful father.

  4. Congrats, Emily! I, too, was reduced to tears when I read her story. Mama, you deserve this!
