10 Things

I know, I know. You're supposed to be doing these lists on Tuesday. Whoops! I'm very bad with time. All my days are a blur of diapering and crying and feeding and laughing and, if I'm lucky, a little sleeping here and there. Better late than never...

10 Things I am thankful for today:

  1. Phonecalls from the hubby throughout the day. It's nice to be thought of.

  2. Portable DVD players. We're going to the big Mountain View for the weekend. It's only about 2 1/2 hrs. away but the girls just can't handle it without a little Barbie cinema!

  3. That my in-laws didn't have any major damage during the 5 tornados that hit Mountain View about a month ago. They were very lucky.

  4. Make-up. I should probably wear this more often.

  5. Hot chocolate, hot tea, hot coffee. See a theme here? I have a sore throat.

  6. These shoes. Sophie told me to throw them away today. They are broken, she says. They've been good to us, I say. Only seven dollars and let's face it, since they are hot pink, they go with just about everything in her closet.

  7. My semi-new (Christmas) serger. My seams have had an extreme makeover.

  8. That we have a deck to play on when the backyard is all wet and mushy.

  9. Seeing my brother yesterday. Law school + Texas = never getting to see him. The girls haven't stopped talking about "Uncle Danny" all day!

  10. Three little girls in three years. I know it's cliche' to say this, but God gave me just what I needed, instead of what I thought I wanted. What a blessing they are to me. And what a blessing they are to each other!

Have a great weekend!

Personal request.....could you do a tutorial on using a serger? I got one for my birthday/christmas that has never even been out of the box. Brian usually helps me w/ instructions since my reading comprehension after I had the girls dipped to a 3rd grade level. However, I got the machine from him in December and now I am ashamed to admit to him it is still in the!!!!

My uncle, aunt, and cousins are from Mountain View! I saw the damage in the town from her blog, it looked awful. I'm glad your family was okay.

I loved your number 10. So sweet! What was it you thought you wanted instead?

I wish I was as crafty as you with the whole serging thing. All I recall is how horrible I was in home ec when we had to make that short set, and mine turned out large enough for a pregnant woman!
