It is an hour until Thursday on this great hump day.  While the house is still trashed and the laundry not finished... it has finally stopped raining.  Just in time for the afternoon sun to shine in as a pleasant surprise that stopped all of us in our tracks for a moment or two earlier today.  A reminder of how life can catch you off guard in the simplest of ways sometimes.

So, how about some happy thoughts?

  • The Royals are up TWO games to NONE against the Mets in the World freaking Series.  It is our year baby.
  • Our master bedroom is unpacked and everything but the curtains are hung up.
  • I've started to feel the bubble feeling of this little one inside of me.
  • Grace ate real chicken today (as opposed to McDonalds chicken...) on her own free will.
  • The delight of daddy coming home from work has returned to our house.  Crazy dog limbs everywhere and our beautiful girl stopping to smile as the boots trudge up the stairs.
  • Fall TV shows are back... and I'm slightly obsessed with Blindspot, Blood and Oil and the Blacklist.
  • I had to take the 1 hour glucose test early (because of the gestational diabetes I "had" with Grace..) in this pregnancy, which resulted in Grace going into the free child watch program at the hospital for a while.  The happy part?  No tears were shed.  (Which could also be sad too... she's growing up...)
  • This year will be the first year we take Grace legit trick'or'treating!  It is also Rob's first year to be here for Halloween.  Last year he was at WOCS during Halloween and Thanksgiving.
  • Every morning I wake up and I am alive and free.
Happy almost-Thursday my friends!

  2. Sweet photo! I am so glad that everything is going well. :)

  3. Such an adorable picture! My daughter turns one tomorrow and we are going to wait another year for the Trick or Treating. I would end up eating all the candy this year anyway and that is NOT something I need right now haha

  4. Girl, I have a very, very sad long list of fall shows I love. Especially Quantico! So glad things are pulling together there!
