What I Love About Today

  • I've been feeling the baby move for a few weeks now, I just forget to blog about it.  As I type this, tiny feet are bumping the inside of my belly.  A kick has never felt so good.
  • Sitting on the couch, watching the news, enjoying my second cup of coffee (which I got a great deal on at Meijer this week - $6.99 for Starbucks Whole Bean Sumatra with a $1 off coupon), reading blogs and email...still in my jammies of course.
  • Its a bit cloudy outside, which makes my day easier.  No stress of playing in the yard, weeding or mowing the lawn - just laundry - which I typically hate, but am in a surprisingly good mood about today.
  • We're only 5 days away from finding out what this next baby will be.  I have no idea.
  • Annelise has decided that staying in bed during naptime is boring.  I finally caught her getting out of it today.  She's so sneaky!  Inevitably, I had to spank her to get my point across.  I think she's asleep now, but who really knows.  I don't dare open the door to possibly find her reading books on the floor.
  • We have absolutely no plans for this weekend - no meetings, youth activities, work events, big house projects - we're hoping to spend some quality time at home tomorrow, as a family.  
  • Kelly posted about her great finds this week at Meijer.  I was tempted to do the same, but didn't want to haul all the groceries out of the cabinet.  Basically, I planned two weeks worth of meals and bought $100 worth of groceries - all for $74.  Here's to couponing online (which I'm new to) and shopping the sale ad.  A novel idea, I know.
I hope you all enjoy your Friday.  Take some time to read to your kids today, kiss your husband and tell him what a joy he is in your life and most importantly of all, praise your God for the amazing provider He is in your life.  Really, we're all living better than 99% of the people on our planet.

Here here! It has been a good day, I bought the kids a couple books at a garage sale today, then I STILL ended up at the library!
