a few of my favorite things

I know, I know… it has been over a week since my last post. I’ve been working hard on another website and was trying to not get distracted while doing that. And well, general life has happened which means lots of sleepless nights and the normal stuff. ha!

This weather has me down too… we had such a gloriously beautiful weekend two weekends ago and since then it has been DREARY winter weather and that just does nothing for the ol’ seasonal depression.

This past weekend we went to a birthday party for Rory and Ryder’s little friend, Addison. Both girls are still singing happy birthday to her and talking about her bunny. It is so cute! Ryder especially loves Addison- they are the same size and have similar personalities so Ryder is just drawn to her I guess. It is so cute seeing her at an age where she remembers her friends and talks about them.

After the party we went to an Easter egg hunt which is always big fun for the girls! They both had a blast. Unfortunately my blog isn’t letting me upload any pictures so I will have to share those whenever I get that fixed.

So since I can’t upload any pictures I thought I’d share some things that I’m really loving right now.

1) Love & Family by William and Glenna Marshall. My friend, Glenna, and her husband recorded an album that shares their story through marriage, faith, infertility, and the joy of their son that they adopted. It is such a beautiful album and I hope you click the link and listen to it and BUY IT. All proceeds are helping to fund their upcoming Ethiopian adoption.

In fact… I think I will give a CD away to y’all! 🙂 All you have to do is head over to the bandcamp page they have set up, listen to the album and come back and tell me which song is your favorite on this post! I will pick a winner on Friday!

2) I LOVE deal of the day sites. I have no idea, but they thrill me to no end. Well, my new favorite site like this is Pick Your Plum. I am officially obsessed. I want to buy some of the wooden tags on there today but not sure when I would use them. But maybe I need them just in case….

3) I have found myself in a time of life where reading a book is nearly impossible. The only time I can read is at night but by then I’m so dog tired I can’t get past a single page without falling asleep. So, I just have been reading blogs mostly. One of my favorite post is this one- To the parents of small children: Let me be the one that says it out loud.

Hopefully I will have my picture uploading thingamajig fixed soon!

  1. No way, how do you know Glenna and William?? I went to college with them (only really knew Glenna, though). I don’t want to enter the giveaway because I want to buy their album myself, but I love that you’re giving one away!

I love hearing from y'all! Leave a comment below!
