1.The other night I asked Bret to grill up some chops for dinner. He proceeded to put on his headlamp before grabbing the plate of herb marinated meat.
Headlamps come in handy when it's already dark outside at 5 p.m.
2.Being without my computer since Saturday was a challenge. I have this theory that it's the Anti-virus software companies that create viruses...you know, job security and all.
3.Currently reading The Happiness Project and enjoying it thoroughly. There are some gems in there that you can really chew on and digest. Read it. Love it.
4.Jonas looks super cute in his skinny jeans.
5.We went to Disneyland last week after our family pictures. We decided to watch the Christmas fireworks show (even though I really wanted to wait and do it closer to Christmas). I admit that watching the glow of the fireworks light up my kids "in awe" faces made me tear up a bit. We love that place.
6.I have overheard a few mom's say how excited they are to have their kids home for a whole week next week. I just keep my head down and push the stroller the other way, in case they ask me if I'm excited, because...well, I'm not. Judge me...it's cool.
7.It's really difficult for me not to buy something for myself during this time of year. I really try and only buy for others, but when my inbox is inundated with fantastic deals at some of my favorite stores, clicking that delete button is just so hard. Anyone else with me on this?
8.I find what people end up pinning on Pinterest so fascinating.
9.I bought two huge blocks of fresh mozzeralla. I can not wait to drizzle a few slices (or more) with some vinaigrette dressing and devour it. Mmmm...nom nom nom.
10.Mailee has now picked up on the fact that when she is the one saying the prayer everyone is quiet and only listens to her. She has now made her prayers her way of letting us know things.
"Please help me to get some more box tops and that mom won't forget to cut them out. Please help us recycle toilet paper rolls by making them into binoculars. Please help us to have some gum today after lunch even though I accidentally swallowed mine for two days now and Mom said no more. I want a kitty."
She's a smart one.
