This Week I'm Loving

I have been sick for the past few days and Holland has not been sleeping great {she's teething and I'm guessing she's probably a little sick with me} so I just thought I would take some time to recognize some of my blessings from this week in order to try and not be quite so grumpy! 
  • The beautiful weather 
  • Cute outfits on cute babies {I'm referring to my sweet Holland girl of course!}
  • Race and all that he does for me and Holland
  • Holland's smiles and laughs 
  • Dry shampoo 
  • Water 
  • Yummy & easy to make food. 
  • Birthdays {Race's birthday is on Sunday and I'm so excited!!} 
  • Getting packages 
  • Extra cuddles with my teething babe
  • A clean and {mostly} organized house 
  • Soft tissues 
  • A comfy couch and bed 
  • Warm blankets
  • Entertaining movies and books {I just read Water for Elephants and then watched the movie--the book is better of course--and then we watched Life of Pi for Pi day and Race just read Warm Bodies which I think he liked better than the movie--which we both loved--so that is next on my list to read!} 
  • Long naps 
  • TV shows to entertain me {I've been rewatching Psych on Netflix and watching Catfish: The TV Show on Hulu} 
  • Makeup {to help me not look quite as dead as I feel} 
  • Texts from/Chats on the phone with/Skype with my family. I talk to my sister and my mom all the time but this week one of my brothers called me just because and another one texted me just because. It has been a good week! :] 
  • The night Holland went to bed at 9pm and slept til 7:30 am except for one feeding at 11 pm {This is the kind of night I could get used to! Too bad it only happens once every couple of weeks!} 
  • Working on my Smashbook and Holland's baby Smashbook 
It is so nice to sit down and think about all the good things that have happened this week. Despite feeling sick it really has been an enjoyable week! 

And here are a couple of pictures from Holland and my little adventure outside today! 
{I love this girl in overalls! Also, can you see her tiny wispy hairs?}


  1. You're the coolest. I love this list! Also, I totally love Psych.

  2. Shut up, are overalls a thing? Please let them be a thing haha.

  3. Glad to hear her sleeping is getting better... at least every once in a while!

    This is a great list. I'm having kind of a tough day (Owen REFUSED to take a nap this morning) so it's nice to be reminded of happy things!

  4. Rory has the SAME PHONE!!! My mom saved it from when I was a baby hahaha crazy huh?? ;)

    (Although to be honest, I can't see it without thinking of the poor little phone in Toy Story 3)

    And we're having issues with naps too over here! All three of us are sick and Rory's hacking cough isn't helping her sleep poor thing, but at least she's chipper hahaha

  5. Psych = the best!
    Cute pictures! I love seeing the cute things you get and do for Holland because it gives me such fun ideas for when I have a baby! :)

  6. Love that last picture! So cute! Always a good thing to count our blessings. I need to do it more!
