TDOT: Day Ten

On this blustery Saturday morning, I’m thankful for:

  1. Old friends and new babies! I’m having lunch today with a dear friend I met nearly 13 years ago when we were both working a retail job at the mall. Then, we both got a much better desk job (read: more money plus benefits) and worked there together for a few years before both becoming teachers! It’s been so awesome to keep in touch through the years, and I’m excited to see her and her little one today! I hope my little one is good at the restaurant!
  2. A husband who is committed to physical fitness. I haven’t always appreciated this in all instances, because I’ve never consistently been dedicated to working out. I will work out for months, and then not work out for months, so I feel like kind of a slob during those not working out months while my husband’s out running half marathons and such. But honestly, it’s important to him to take care of his body so that he feels healthy and can look forward to a long life with us. I love that about him. (Plus, he’s pretty hot!)
  3. A chubby baby. I have been so blessed to not have had any nursing issues, and my little Bubs has steadily gained weight since leaving the hospital. He likes his groceries, and this Momma has been able to keep up with his  nutritional demands. That, if you didn’t know, is a HUGE blessing. It’s saved a lot of stress and a lot of money, since we haven’t had to buy formula to supplement. And the fat rolls and chipmunk cheeks are just so cute!

What are you thanking the Lord for today? 

My Favorite Things…. (and a cute baby as a bonus)

Longer video than I meant it to be, but it’s about some of my favorite things! You just might find something you’d love, too. 😉

And for the grandparents…

****Disclaimer for my “My Favorite Things” video: I stumbled over my words when talking about the book by Dr. Laura because I know that some people would prefer to read a book about marriage that is from the Christian perspective. This one is not, but I still found it to be biblical because the author is Jewish. I found it to be great because she’s very smart and very practical. I love this book, and I love Laura Schlessinger and her show. So if it in any way sounded like I didn’t, or if anything seemed negative related to her being Jewish, that wasn’t intentional. The fact is that I was already on my second take of this video, and I knew Bubs would wake up at any moment! Hope you get where I’m coming from. 😉
