Ten Things

ven when I have fallen off the blog wagon (much like now) I try to make sure I take time for Ten Things.  Emmy hosts at the end of every month and it's a great opportunity to remember what the top reasons to smile were that month.  Thank you, Emmy, for keeping me on track and helping me remember that there's always a reason to smile.

JULY 2010

Pedicures and ice cream on Girls' Days with MY girl

Creamy white blossoms on the magnolia tree out back

An easy, family filled celebration for the 4th of July.
Good food, good times -- lots of fun!!

My body reminding me that I can't take care of anything else if I don't take care of myself first

Watching a movie on the patio with E and making our own date night at home

Colleagues like Tracy, Shannon, Lynn and Alexis that are really just great friends that I happened to meet at work

Taking some time to enjoy being a Mom to my wild and wacky two and remembering what a special blessing they are to me

E's parents always being there and offering us sanity in an otherwise truly insane time in our lives

My sweet husband confirming travel plans for our tenth anniversary trip to Maui

An all expense paid trip to a world class destination and still thinking that there's no place as beautiful and charming as my own home

Happy your kids are keeping you happy.
But I'm still jealous.

WElcome back. Hubs and I just watched two movies together and it was so great. I enjoyed that too.
Hooray for pedicures.

I always think about you near the end of the month as you were the first to do the lists with me. I totally understand the not being able to take care of others one. I was starting to lose some of milk supply as I was taking such poor care of myself for a bit there. But I am committed and taking the time now.

So jealous about Hawaii! It will be ten Yeats for us next June... Maybe I will have to start dropping hints. :)

I've missed your posts, glad this got you back, for one day at least :)
