And not just any Friday, but the eve of a date night with fabulous friends.
I can hardly contain myself, I'm so excited!!!
Last Friday we were riding bikes in jackets or long sleeve shirts...
This little boy loves his fruit.
He follows me around saying, "open, open?"
I got my sign!
I am spastically, crazy, over the moon excited about how it turned out.
I have been looking for the perfect sign for a long time.
Something that says what we are all about. What is truly important to us.
The values that build our foundation and are at our core.
I l.o.v.e. everything about it.
I love, just love such a refreshing reminder as we come and go.
A reminder for how to live life as we go out into the world and return home each time.
This week I had the honor of attending an enchanting evening of inspiration. An evening soaking in how to truly build up a peaceful spirit of excited anticipation for Christmas...
How not go into the season bracing for impact and the breath-gripping stress of hurried event preparations....to-do lists...self-imposed pressure to create magic.
It was refreshing and motivating and exciting to have someone I look up to and admire so much speak to how to get back to experiencing the awe and wonder of Christmas that we experienced as children.
The evening was such a blessing and gift to receive going into Advent.
I feel like I could burst at the seams and go yell on a mountain how excited I am for Christmas this year.
Instead I'll just blog about it...for the sake of my perceived sanity by others.
But you get the idea. Kinda.
It's a joyful thing.
I've kinda gone Christmas crafting crazy up in here.
A few projects will need to await their blog debut till later...so as not to ruin any awesome surprises...because oh they are going to be so good. Surprises are hard for me. I just want to do everything this second.
But some I can inundate you with now!
Like this super-fab project I was inspired to create by Meg over at Whatever!
The second I was gifted with Grandma Jody's beads, I knew what they would become. It was fate. They were destined to be on my wall!
I love vintage/retro anything. But there is something so awesome about vintage/retro looking funky beads. They just scream, "Make something fabulous with me!"
I hope I did them justice.
They sure make me happy.
A BFF gifted me with these items this week.
I LOVE her for so many reasons, but Candy.Cane.Oreos seals the friendship for life.
I mean till death do us part and beyond.
Target. They can only be found at Target. Go there now.
Buy all they have on the shelf. Don't forget the milk.
Then call me. I'll be right over.
In other news, he has learned to escape the crib and enjoys stripping down to his birthday suit and streaking through the house...when he is suppose to be napping.
And the brown mystery substance on the bathroom floor has passed "the smell test" and been identified as brown paint.
Thank you Jesus, it was just brown paint.
You know "the smell test"....don't act like you haven't done it.
Have a great weekend.
It's been real.
