Simple Little Things That Bring Me Joy.

1. The Clifford Bag.


He got to bring the Clifford bag home yesterday and Clifford has yet to leave his side. ´╗┐So far, H has been learning that just because Clifford wants to do something, doesn't mean it happens. There are a lot of things Clifford apparently has planned during his stay here.

We loved looking through the book of all the pictures his classmates {or their parents, ahem!} have drawn and written about their time with Clifford.

2. New boots.
We went to Cabela's Saturday evening to look at the animals and all their boots were on sale so I bought H and E's next year boots. But E loves hers so much that even though they are two shoe sizes too big she wears them morning til night.

3. Two of our kids have this habit that in the middle of the night they come and visit us. Sneaking in while we sleep and when we wake up in the morning one is usually sprawled across us and one is on the floor and I know, in my head that we should put a ka-bosh on it. But in my heart, I love it and I know how temporary these phases can be.

4. Preschool love.

Read the note. Enough said.

So, what are some simple little things bringing YOU joy this week?

Spending a few extra hours with my husband due to a canceled dinner date with a friend. Reorganizing our hutch by downsizing what's in it. A fun lunch break with a friend who also happens to be a co-worker.

Dang it, Jes stole mine! LOL
In addition to sunshine, I would say a fresh haircut, I still lament about the higher prices from my stylist, but she makes me feel so darn good when I leave there that I always end up feeling it's worth it!

One of my many joys is when M will draw a picture and write "To Mommy, From Maddi".
A new thing that she has started is drawing an outline of a picture and use paint for the colors. It might take her days to fill it in just that way she wants it, but in the end it is beautiful!

A hug! I have been in such a sour mood lately, wedding stuff is starting to get overwhelming, and just being wrapped up in a hug by a special someone makes everything all of sudden seem ok.

This week there are so many things. An interesting new book. A pedicure with a new friend. A rousing game of Apples to Apples with girlfriends and wine. But perhaps my favorite, is the celebration of an engagement for a good friend and co-worker. I love love... :)
