All weeks are not created equal. Some are just better than others for some reason. This week has been filled with sweet blessings all around and I’m basking in the sweetness of it.
Here’s some of the highlights this week, I have so much to be thankful for!
My friend Katie (yes the same one that took me to the concert last weekend) took me to a Blazers game this week. I had no idea that we would be sitting down by the floor and it was so fun. I’m not a huge basketball fan but I’m not gonna lie, it was fun. We sat right behind the “Free throw guy,” were on the big screen a few times because we were right behind the basket, and the best part is we had a great time talking about life and getting to know each other. I know, not game talk but that’s how we roll. I just have to say too, those players are seriously so young. Some of them looked like they were 15, but in a very large body. Now, I’ve got to find a fun activity I can take Katie on. Any ideas for me friends?
My kids have been exceptionally sweet this week. Isaac has actually turned a corner and has obeyed. It makes all the difference to not be giving time outs (recovery time) all day. Here are two pictures that pretty much sum up the kids and what they like to do. And they’re adorable, but I’m not biased at all I know.
The weather has been amazing this week and I can’t help but take pictures of it. It won’t last much longer so I’m loving every last day of beauty. Matt even mowed the lawn again this week. It’s weird that I’m thinking about when we’re going to go get a Christmas tree and we’re still mowing the yard.
I’ve also enjoyed a long walk and good talk with my friend Rachel, went to the cafe for music time with Jessie and the kids, had a great MOPS meeting this morning, and our life group with our church was so fun and refreshing last night. We had a new gal come that is a new Christian and she was so refreshing to be with. She is trying to eat Vegan and when I told her that the brownies I made were indeed vegan she was pretty excited. See people, my new crazy eating habits are in fact blessing the lives of people around me. Who knew that would happen?! One of the guys in the group even ate two saying he would have never known and really like them. It’s the little things that make me happy 🙂
For those of you who like crafty things here’s a link to some great Thanksgiving ideas (Thanks to Pinterest). Many of them are quick and easy, fun, and you still have time to do one before Thursday if you want. I did mine while making dinner last night. Nothing fancy but a reminder to be Thankful and makes it feel a little more festive anyway. (Don’t mind the fact that I’m in the picture. Just focus on the cute banner.)
This weekend is the first weekend in 7 weeks that our whole family has been together at home. Whew! I’m ready for that. To celebrate that fact, Matt and I will go on a date, Yay! And we get to have dinner with friends tomorrow night.
Seriously people, I’m feeling incredibly blessed this week. Our lives may be crazy but we are so rich in relationship with others and I’m soaking it all in.
I hope you all have a blessed weekend.
