Is it really already Memorial Day weekend? I feel like I just put all my Christmas decorations away. And I kinda did, since I found a misplaced ornament on my kitchen counter yesterday.
How does this keep happening?
While I can’t slow the pace of time, I can, at the very least, try and recognize all the moments for which to be grateful. Before they leave me in the dust, as I scramble to put away holiday decorations (there is still an Easter Bunny on my front door, people).
This week, I’m thankful for:
This article: 20 Things Every Parent Should Hear. Such a great read.
The upcoming 3-day weekend and plans with friends
Modern medicine — especially you, Amoxicillin, thanks for giving me my baby back
Good books — they make the elliptical so much more tolerable
Our new grill
This book. Oh dear goodness it was so good.
You’ve done it again, Trader Joe’s. People, I have not had any Snapple (or any artificial sweetener!!!) in weeks. Those of you who know me understand how PIVOTAL this is. I couldn’t have done it without this unsweetened tea. Seriously.
Our deck. Bring on the BBQ.
This song – AND the video. Holy moly. Cannot get enough. Thanks for finding your groove again, JT.
My current chocolate fix. The Mister bought them in bulk for a nice recovery drink. Don’t tell him I steal one every night
My new watering can. Call me a dork, but it makes watering my flower so much easier (and cuter!)
This side by side comparison of Sawyer and me. Freaky, huh?
What are you loving right now?
It was a rough weekend.
Sawyer was diagnosed with a double-ear infection on Friday. Poor little goose.
Jason also wasn’t feeling 100%.
Sadly, our highly anticipated trip to visit friends in Columbus and Sunday date with Thomas and more friends had to be put on the back-burner.
But I wasn’t going to resign us to sitting inside miserable. Once we got some medicine in the little man, I grabbed Grandma and Papa and went on a little adventure to Chagrin Falls, where we fed the duckies and took in the wonder of the waterfalls.
Bean and I spent the afternoon snoozing on the couch.
Sawyer then gave the Mister and I a little lesson in cloud-watching, correctly identifying cumulonimbus, stratus and cirrus clouds. No joke.
Just what the doctor ordered.
