It was the first week of my new job! It’s been a fun change and I am enjoying it so far. My body is still trying to get used to waking up an hour earlier and driving further, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it in the next couple of weeks. I got to catch up on my sleep yesterday though. I slept 12 hours!! Woo hoo!
The drive to work may be longer, but the view isn’t bad…
This weekend was a fun and productive weekend. I finally got around to cleaning the office. I can finally see my desk!!
The hubby was busy this weekend building stuff for Little Mr. and mounting our T.V.’s on the wall. He built a toy box and put together a picnic table for him. He’s such a nice daddy!
This is the TV in our living room. I strategically took the picture when the Cowboy’s logo was up on the screen. Don’t hate me; I’m from Dallas. Who else is excited for football season?!
This is the other TV that my hubs mounted in our son’s new play room. This pic was taken before he neatly tucked away all of the wires. Guess who’s favorite show was on? 😉
Here’s Daddy hard at work putting the new picnic table together. This will be the perfect spot for snack time! You can also see Little Mr.’s toy screw driver. He wasn’t anywhere to be found though. Ha ha! Hopefully, he’ll be a good helper when he’s a little older.
I was really happy when my package of free stuff from Ivory came in. I won it from Influenster from the Ivory 2-in-1 challenge. Score!!
Last, but not least, here is my favorite picture of the weekend. Cuddle time with my little man. 🙂
I hope you had a great weekend with lots of happy happenings too! What was the highlight of your week or weekend?
Let me start by saying that I rarely cry. I have never been one of those girls that can cry at the drop of a hat. Sometimes I actually wish I were able to cry more. I think it would make me feel better to get it all out when I get really stressed or sad. But, I’m just not a crier.
This morning I was sitting outside in my backyard drinking my coffee and watching my son play in the yard. I was watching him look around at the trees and stomp through the grass. He was in his own little world, picking up pieces of mulch and picking flowers, just exploring and doing what he loves to do. I sat in awe watching him. I thought about how much he has grown over the past 14 months. I thought of his innocence and how I never want him to lose that part of him, but how I know it’s inevitable that life will eventually take that from him. I thought of how overwhelmingly happy I am to have him in my life. And, I cried. I only shed a couple of tears, but I cried today. I cried happy tears.
Sometimes it feels good to cry and release emotions that get tucked away behind the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This was one of those times. Watching my son play in the yard at this young age, where it is his whole world, will be a memory that I treasure forever. I love you my little son, more than words.
Why are you robbing me of my weekend? I don’t want to go back to work already!! It was a great weekend, and I just don’t won’t it to end. Wah!!! 😦
Don’t rob me of sunny days with my boys, playing outside and soaking up the sunshine…
His favorite thing to do is get in and out of his pool. In and out! Hehe…it’s too cute!
The hubby and I finally got a date night. It was long overdue. We went to dinner and walk on the pier afterwards. It was a great time!
I had the beef short ribs and the hubs had filet mignon. Sooooo yummy!!
We also finally watched Bridesmaids. It was hilariously embarrassing! It was hard to watch at times, but it had some really funny parts!
I am sad to see the weekend go, but at least this week is a short one. Yay 4th of July!
How was your weekend?
I’m sitting here at jury duty trying not to pull my hair out. Bored doesn’t even begin to describe my feelings at the moment. So I thought, what better time than now to reflect on the happy things in life.
Like this little guy smiling at Mickey Mouse on the T.V. or playing in his new Elmo tent…
And my new lovely finds from HomeGoods
Our living room was in need of some more color so I was really happy when I found these colorful chevron pillows! I also found a new comforter set. I have been on the hunt for the perfect one for at least a year now. I knew this was it right when I saw it…
I wanted lighter, neutral toned bedding to lighten up our dark room. I think it’s a nice contrast with the black bed frame.
What do you have to be happy about today?
