From scuffing to decorating to craving to splashing to kicking butt … yes, this week has been full of exciting favorite things.
10 Favorite Things
1.) First and foremost, my son had his first accident. He was running on the sidewalk, tripped, fell, and broke my heart. In other words, he fell and scuffed his cute, little button nose. He’s a tough kid, though. He cried for a little bit and then went right back to his curious self. His nose is almost healed which is such a big relief. Motherhood is quite the roller coaster ride.
2.) Our neighbors were getting rid of two white chairs that I knew would be perfect in our bedroom. So, thanks to their awesome kindness and generosity, those chairs are now in our bedroom. Seriously, we are so excited about the additions. They were exactly what we needed to complete our bedroom decor. Huge hugs go out to them.
4.) Splashing in my son’s pool is quickly becoming one of my favorite activities. Watching him laugh, splash, and play is one of life’s greatest joys.
5.) My husband has been kicking bootay around the house. We both hated the gold doorknobs throughout our home. So, my husband took charge and has been switching out the knobs throughout our home. Seriously, you would think that a small change wouldn’t make that big of a difference. Wrong in so many ways. Seriously, so many ways. That one simple change has made a world of a difference.
6.) My son now says “pasta,” “grandpa,” and “Caster” (the name of one of our dogs) … in addition to “dada” and a few other words. He still hasn’t said “mama” in a way that I would count him as saying “mama.” Fingers crossed that any day now he will say my name and tears will roll down my face.
7.) The weather has been hot which means that my husband and I have been trying to find as many ways as possible to spend time on our screened in porch. Hot weather, amazing wine, grilled food, beautiful sunsets, and amazing company (yes, my super cute husband) … that’s perfection in my book.
8.) We’re trying to figure out a great solution for an empty area in our screened in porch. Maybe a drink station is just what we need. What’s your favorite drink station item?
9). We started putting plans into place for a backyard fire pit. I seriously cannot wait to make my son his first s’more. That right there, folks, is the definition of childhood. Am I right or am I right?
10.) We lined up some fun little getaways and awesome visitors over the next few months. Hello, summer and good times! What are you most looking forward to this summer?
