Happy Friday!! October 31!! Holy cow! It is Halloween and almost the end of the year is here!! Time for the holiday season! SO excited for it!! And time for Fabulous Five!! The best day of the week!!
I have a lot to be grateful for this week! First off thank you to all of you who checked out the maternity pictures!! You guys are so sweet! So many nice compliments!! Emma was so happy to know you all thought she was a fabulous photographer!! SO THANK YOU!!
BABY UPDATE: Another stress test today! And if all is well, Monday is the day!! Coming up fast! A few more things left to do! Last night, I moved some beds around thinking that may move things along….. it did not! Oh well, obviously baby is not ready to come! I have accepted this! So I will do an update on Monday!!
On to the fabulous five!!
My sweet friend Yessica came over for a visit and brought these gorgeous things! I love flowers and I love that she was kind enough to take time out of her busy day to come visit! She has had some tough times lately and I feel like I should be visiting her, not her coming to see me! I am grateful for her friendship! Friends are wonderful and should always be appreciated! I hope all of you know how much your friendship means to me!! Thank you!
Mike came home with these after a kinda hard day…. I was stressed and overwhelmed and he walked in with flowers, I asked him what they were for, and he responded just because. I said you know yellow roses are friendship… he said he knew, that he was grateful for my friendship! SO SWEET!! For those of you that have an ALDI”S nearby… they have the best flowers!! The best! They are inexpensive and they live for so long!! I am grateful for Mike, after a rough day, I needed him to be a little more thoughtful and he did it with out even knowing the day I was having!
This is my brother Tommy’s best friend… Nick! Aka computer guru! The kids did something to the computer….. I am pretty sure it was Marsha while she was blogging with me! Haha! He came over and spent forever helping transfer 48000 pictures! Numerous other files too! What a guy! He is amazing, for his contact info just ask!! Thankful for his help! Emma calls him her BFF! So fun!
Sandy Petersen, Emma’s Kindergarten teacher! YES KINDERGARTEN!! Emma is in highschool now! Well Sandy ordered some bread, she is one my biggest supporters! I wasn’t here when she came by, but Emma was and they had such a nice visit! Emma said she loved seeing her and how much she loved her! To top that off, Sandy brought a sweet little gift for me and the baby! So thoughtful! I am so grateful that we are still friends after all these years and I hope to be friends forever!!
Yes I know it is still October and yes I know that is too early…. but I have a rule, the first candy canes of the season that I see I have to buy!! I don’t know why, it just makes me happy! I won’t eat them for weeks but I do love to see them! The season of joy and love and kindness is here!! I love the excitement! The beauty of the Christmas trees, lights, pretty music and just everything!!! It is coming!!
There are my top five for the week! Next week will be filled with baby joy I hope! Lots coming up!! I am so grateful for all of you!! Thank you again for your sweet comments and messages! They are so kind, thoughtful and make me feel so loved! Please keep praying all goes well with the baby and delivery! I am very nervous! Off to have a “full” day, now that I have accepted that he wont be here until Monday, I am going to just pack in as much as possible!!
Have a happy day!
