Having a Blessed Day!

I am feeling very blessed today! I had a great day just hanging out with my girls. I took down the little ones crib and turned her room into a playroom, then shipped her off to her big sister’s room. Its so nice to sing one song, read one book and say one prayer with them instead of doing everything twice!

Counting a few of my blessings:

Walmart.com has a great deal on uniform bundles that comes with five shirts and two pants for only $43! And it includes shipping. I did get A some hand me down uniforms, but since they wear out so quickly, I am glad she will have a few new ones of her own.

I finally made the delicious Buffalo Chicken Wraps that I saw on pinterest. They were not as good as I hoped, but I think next time I will use a different wing sauce and it will be a score!








I completed brainstorming and writing my first week of plans.

I found pink high heel shaped paperclips at Office Depot, and I even had the willpower to walk away from them. (I regret this already but I am proud of my restraint)









I got four new books from the library- Shopaholic and Baby, Thanks for the Memories, The Book Whisperer, and 65 short science mysteries.

Tomorrow I get to spend the day at the lake swimming with the girls, talking with friends and eating peanut butter and jelly with sand in my toes. Can you believe this is in CO?













Sometimes during this time of year it is easy for me to think about all the things I did not accomplish or how much I am going to miss being home with the girls, or staying in my pajamas all day. But I am loving the moment that I am in, and I am looking forward to jumping back into teaching. Not to mention, my high heels are feeling very neglected and they are also ready to get back to work!

I hope you are able to sit back for a minute and count all the blessings, even the little ones,  in your life!
