So fun, thank you, thank you, thank you! And the winner is…

I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.” ~ Maya Angelou

Let me start this off to say, thank you, for  I know how lucky I am.  This started off as a silly little Halloween contest to help take my mind off of everything going on and like each time that I have felt despair to my very core, you have been there, ready to help me however I needed it, even if it was something silly (or critically important for you Halloween lovers out there), like choosing our family Halloween costume. To me, you’re playing along in this vote, was for me like a warm hug and for those of you not so comfortable with affection, a friendly pat on the back.  So, thank you for allowing me to fall down so I could get back up again to be what I need to be as whole person.

Now, with the mushy stuff out of the way, on to the important part of this post…..what will the Pruitts be for Halloween (BTW, still working on KSP, and based on the winning costume, not sure how I will do, but it is fair to say that 3 of the 4 Pruitt’s will be represented in costume)….drum roll please……

Yay! The Flintstones.

I am personally thrilled for I will not have to be scantily clad or wear spandex (you should all be thrilled about this as well), and it will be sooo soo soo cute! For our first annual Halloween costumes vote by ‘mynewfavoriteday’ readers, the Pruitt’s will be….

The Flintstones!

Wondertwins = Pebbles and Bam Bam!

Thank you everyone for playing along and making today ‘mynewfavoriteday.’ I hope that today will be ‘yournewfavoriteday’ and that you will receive and give someone a warm hug or a friendly pat on the back.  Both will give you a nice little boost!  xoxo Shannon

About Shannon Pruitt from 'Mynewfavoriteday'

Welcome to 'mynewfavoriteday. This space is about gratitude and connecting through being open, vulnerable and real. I hope you will enjoy my take on motivation, inspiration and advocacy and will take the opportunity to tell me of your own thoughts and stories. Why I started 'mynewfavoriteday.' I am a childhood surviving, divorced, now happily married, IVF (and now natural pregnancy) success story, working mother of 2 amazing babies who were born 12 weeks premature. As life often seems to surprise you when you least expect it, we added another sweet baby girl M to our family in July of 2013. While our angel minis, Q and E are now 7 years old, our son, Q, has thrived while our daughter, E, has had a much more difficult journey. She is considered special needs and in September of 2012 was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome. And so, as she has grown, so do we as individuals and as family. How to help her, how to celebrate our differences while allowing ourselves to cope with the challenges that we never knew to expect. Thus, while much of this blog is based on our experiences (good and not-so-good), it is also based on how we must not let ourselves become victims of our circumstances but rather advocate in our own lives. A little bit about me and who I am. In my professional life I am a marketer in the Entertainment Industry; however, ‘mynewfavoriteday,’ was not born of entertainment or marketing but rather as a pathway to help myself and others as we try to define who we are as parents, family members, spouses, friends, colleagues and people. I believe in never judging a book by its cover. Every cover is different, and no matter what your cover looks like, you never know how someone's book is written. Like mine. From the outside, you might never know what truly makes me who I am or what I believe. This blog explores the pages on the inside of my book. My vulnerabilities, fears, happiness, and all my triggers through the lens of being grateful for all the amazing blessings I know I have received but sometimes forget in the challenges of daily life. Thanks again for dropping by. I hope you will come back, subscribe, comment, share, and/or just hang out and be inspired or motivated to make each day for yourself or someone else 'anewfavoriteday.' By being here, you have certainly helped to make it mine. xo, Shannon
