What is making you smile today?

the rain we're getting every night/Friday/payday/almost the end of the school year/free donut today at Dunkin Donuts/the cupcakes I baked my 5th period last night/having a 16 year-old chauffeur/my cats/the birds chirping as I type this/

This morning I am smiling because it is Friday, Megan is sleeping in (kids are so precious when they are sleeping!), my green beans are getting big enough that I can see them from my kitchen window and I looked at the calendar and we have no plans for the weekend!

Lovin' your hydrangeas in the jar!! I cannot believe I haven't seen FPFG's party-that is such sweet inspiration, right there!!
Oh, one little side note...I had gotten some of that delish-smelling Mrs. Meyers Lavender dishsoap, countertop cleaner, etc. BEFORE I found out I was pregnant with Fisher. Big mistake!! I cannot handle that stuff anymore-made me so sick. And sad...

I am smiling because~
it is Friday (Friday, Friday, Jump up high day!)
the sun in shining
I have a chik-fil-a reservation for free sandwich today
It is errand day
after school activities are winding down
love the new color of my kitchen hardware (hubby is spray painting it brown bronze)
I finished my CASA training last night!

Can't wait to see how you interpret that fantastic picnic inspiration!

today is one of the "UGH" days, so my smiles are purely from thankfulness, and thoughts of my future home in God's Kingdom.

Where was that ferris wheel pic taken? Love the blooms! I didn't know you had/used Mrs. Meyers . . .

Love you!

Mom said...

found your blog not to long ago and love it!

lets see...smiling because my husband is off work for the next three days, my kids are sleeping with their cheeks all smushed on their pillows, and there was no thunderstorm tonight!

all of yours make me smile too, except that ride! (hello, nausea!)

Lots of camera, the beautiful Oregon mountains, coffee :) :) :)
I love your pretty and fun :) :) I'm going to challenge myself to do the same and look at life in a new way. It should make for some beautiful photos :) :)

Oh, I have Mrs. Meyer's clean day's great. Mrs. Meyer was a real lady who raised NINE children...count 'em ...and her book is funny and full of practical tips. I've used the hand soap and the dryer sheets...both in lemon...:) :)

Have a great weekend.
Greetings from Oregon, Heather :)

Neat post, Monica. Being home is making me smile! Been on a nice long vacation, but as the saying goes...there's no place like home. :-) I do feel *our home* is whereever our family is, but it's nice to get back into the routine a bit after very unscheduled unroutine days. Glad to catch up a bit on your blog here!
