Seven things I like about

my life right now....(besides the 5 you already know....C,T,L,M & N)

1. This adorable dress I found at Old Navy for $12! Fashion accessories(smile, sneaks, toothpaste stain on the front) provided by Lindsey.

2. A semi-clean kitchen...just kidding. Our new fridge & stove! Oh, and the new green paint on the wall. Still have to pick up a new range hood, but I am okay til then.

3. My crazy hair 2 year old singing her heart out with bunny ears on...all the while holding a margarita glass(hey, they were on clearance and are so much more fun to play with). What was she singing? See you again from Miley Cyrus. I told you guys, Disney is invading our home and not Mickey Mouse(that I could handle). 4. My wonderful husband priming the back room. Finally. Am I the only one who sings that song by Cece Peniston whenever I say finally?I can't wait to paint it and make it our playroom.5. That my husband is happy with my gourmet sandwiches of swiss, turkey, lettuce and tomato. Seriously...include some pickles and some iced tea and he is sooo happy!6. Lindsey wants to help me cook all the time. Here she is perfecting the art of mashed potatoes. Really, could her smile get any bigger or cuter?

7. That our kids are this excited about FFFNOs. What you don't know about these? We call them Family Fun Friday Night Out. We hit Sonic....and I meant to make Jill proud and order a bag of ice, but forgot. Next time.

Oh and how could I forget this wonderful highlight of my week so far.


From my friend, Lori, I rec'd this huge box. Okay, yes we are partners in her fall swap and I knew she would be sending something nice, but I didn't expect all these goodies!Can you see why I was jumping up and down with giddiness? She was so generous and sweet to send me 8 pumpkin placecard holders, yankee candles, fall pasta, very cool autumn dishtowels, Bath & Body works antibacterial soap in my FAVORITE scent...irresistible apple! And the nicest sign in the shape of a gourd that says...Friends Gather here. I absolutely love it!Did I mention that she included candy corn and peanuts for my sweet tooth? Also, the most adorable card w/a sweet message inside, along with a basket with a bunch of fun ribbons tied to the handles. I can tell you this box made me pretty excited for fall to arrive.

Lori, thank you so much for it all. AND for hosting the swap. You are really a sweet person.

I'm so glad that your package arrived safely! I hope that you enjoy all your goodies, my wonderful friend!:-)

I love the pictures of your beautiful family! I think we should start having FFFNO at our house, too! Lori

Did you like the earrings?:-)

Jill said...

Lindsey's dress is darling, and I must say I'm happy about the toothpaste stain because it seems that a lot of people send their kids to school without having them brush their teeth first...ew!

Your new fridge and oven look great! I dream of having such things.

A 2 year old singing is always a heart-warming thing.

I find that any sandwich made for me by someone else is a gourmet treat!

I'm honored that you thought of me while at Sonic, though it's too bad you forgot to get a bag of ice. I just finished my 3rd cup full of the day, just in time to fill up my bladder before bed.

Jill said...

P.S. I forgot to say "Holy Cow" about that package from Lori! Did she use one of her good mail labels on it??

mysteryhistorymom said...

Jill- I most certainly used my darling little labels! They make me so happy! Are you the Mail Queen??? Lori

Isn't it nice to reflect over the little/big things that make life so wonderful?

Hi Heather,
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and wishing me a happy birthday...I had a wonderful day.
Isn't Lori just the best? I got a package from her too for my birthday and just loved everything. She really is great about figuring out who a person is and what they like...She is very special.
Your photos of your family are so cute... Looks like you all know how to have fun. Love that!
Take Care,
