Outside my window… it is still frigid – will there ever be a break in this cold weather??
I am thinking… about Erica and Riley arriving tomorrow! And now there are snow flurries in the forecast. While I would love for Riley to see her first snow falling, I sure hope they do not experience any delays because of weather – Erica will, no doubt, be at her limit with two hours on the plane!
I am thankful for… Maria loaning us a car seat for the week (again). We have to rent a crib (which is okay) and checked into renting a car seat as well – 60 dollars! What?? I hate to repeatedly borrow from my friends but I became somewhat desperate at that price. I am now on the hunt for a good used one to buy and have from now on – goodness.
I am wearing…warm, winter clothes…again. I don’t know if I’ll ever go out without three layers again!
I am remembering…how beyond excited my mom used to get when we would head down to North Carolina for a visit – she planned for days! She would fill the pantry and refrigerator to overflowing with everyone’s favorites and always had little gifts and goodies for the kids (one of her love languages was definitely gifts!) She spoiled all of us and everyone always looked forward to going to Mimi’s house!! I am getting the idea of how much fun it is looking forward to the visit!
I am going… to get my puppy groomed today – and not a minute to soon, I might add! He is looking grungy!
I am reading… all the updates on Baby Ryan at his Mommy’s blog. What a miracle boy – that I actually met and fell in love with while volunteering at Children’s – and such a great story!! He came home this weekend!!!
I am hoping… Jordan can get some leave approved sometime soon – and can come home for a visit!!
On my mind… (and on my heart) is Melanie, another momma missing her boy, and just trying to imagine what that day in Heaven will be like when we are all together again.
From the kitchen… I am trying to decide what to cook while Erica and Riley are here. This new diet kinda takes the fun out of meal planning – I’m doing all the planning (and cooking) but don’t get to eat it!
Around the house… we are getting ready for a toddler! What fun:)
Plans for the week… be flexible!! I have some ideas for things to do with Miss Roo and her mom….but we will see what actually pans out. I DO plan to go to a book signing at the Christian bookstore and hope to meet Dr. Stanley. I’ve never been to one of these type of events – do you actually get to meet and talk with the author? I’ll let you know.
One of my favorite things… shoes for Miss Riley! Could shoes for toddler girls be any cuter?? I could probably buy a new pair every day – adorable ones are everywhere I go! That girlie probably has more pairs of shoes that I do:)
