Date Night....

I had an incredible time with The Daddy tonight. Sad to say, but we only went out to eat and then browsed the local bookstore. That would be one of the disadvantages to living in a fairly small town. Regardless, we had SO much fun together! Just laughing, talking and holding hands. It's amazing how just a couple hours of alone time can relieve so much stress. To top the evening off, we had a nice surprise...two of our three kiddos decided to stay the night at Memaw's. WOOHOO!!! Now we are about to snuggle up on the couch and watch a movie. Oh how much I love date night!!!
Until next time,

The little things...

Sometimes in life it's just the little things that make me smile. Right now, here are my top 5:
* Finding out that Coffeemate has made their Peppermint Mocha creamer available ALL year! WOOHOO!
* Knowing I have 5 gift cards in my purse that I get to use for ME! Although, knowing me they will be spent on my kids!
*Even though I'm sad to see Christmas go, I know that I can start dreaming about Spring and gardening! ;-)
*The fact that my cute little hubby is bringing me lunch today. =0)
And last, but not least.... And not so much of a little thing:
*Watching my kiddos play with what they got for Christmas and sharing with each other while laughing together. Pure bliss!
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

Taking some time....

I'm sorry I've been away so much lately. Things are SERIOUSLY busy around here. I have the best of intentions of getting here nightly, but that just never seems to happen. So, I've decided to make myself feel less guilty, I'm officially taking this week off. Not that I haven't had the last couple off. LOL! I just needed to "say" it offically. So, I will be back next week after Christmas with a few surprises. Have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

With Love,

Bah Humbug Blues...

Okay...So I am one of THOSE people that LOVE Christmas. I mean it is my very FAVORITE!!! However, this year I am having a terrible time getting into the spirit. It feels I am being pulled into 100 different directions and that everyone needs something. I'm not enjoying this feeling... I want to savor every moment of this Christmas; remembering the story of our precious Saviour's birth. One night. One star. One set of two weary-eyed parents. One name...JESUS!

Hope you are having a blessed day,
