happiness and bloggy love
You like me?!?! Oh goodness...
Rachel gave me an award.
Isn't she the sweetest?
I started reading Rachel's blog a couple of months ago.
She's a cutie.
She and her soon-to-be pastor husband are currently in the process of adopting a sweet little baby from South Korea. Check out her blog if you get the chance.
I'm supposed to pass this award on to another Bloggy Buddy, but before I do - I have to tell you 6 things that make me happy.
Thinking about happy things just makes me feel...happy...
and since I'm a bit of an overachiever, I did 8.
I know. Obnoxious.
By the way -
I should totally write down the things that make me happy more often.
I found writing this post to be such a good thing for my crazy, postpartumness (I have no idea how to spell that because I'm pretty sure it's not a word.) .
In a world that seems hyper-focused on negative things, remembering God's grace and goodness is so important.
Maybe that's what God meant when He inspired the apostle Paul to say,
"Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things."
Phil. 4: 4-9
That being said...
1. The Gilmore Girls
(Yep. I thank God for The Gilmore Girls. See how I can ever-so-smoothly transition from the spiritual to the televisional? Talent.)
I love watching The Gilmore Girls. Rory and Lorelei's cute back-and-forth banter, sweet mother/daughter relationship, and the crazy characters on the show make me SOOO happy.
I gotta tell you - The sudden loss of The Gilmore Girls was a tough one for me.
I miss my Rory and Lorelei.
They talked me through morning sickness with Avery, late night feedings, and those early postpartum days.
The final season was terrible. It's like the writers just threw together and ending and called it quits.
Where's my CLOSURE people?
It's just not right.
With the exception of the final season, The Gilmore Girls is definitely a happy thing and deserves a spot on my list.
2. New baby smell and sweet cuddles
3. Glitter and buttons and crafting...oh my.
Misty - here's my stocking I finished last night (I just learned how to make paper rosettes. Fun, huh?):
Think of something.
Type it in the search box.
Lovely things appear on the screen.
It's a beautiful Miracle of Modern Science.
I have wonderful friends.
Yesterday, my friend Maribeth texted me to see how I was doing.
When I told her that I wasn't doing too hot, she got a couple of my other girlfriends together and they all came over to keep me company.
They brought me a Diet Coke from Sonic.
And pizza from the yummiest pizza place in our city.
I LOVE THEM.
Everyone should have ladies like those in their lives.
6. Sugah. In all of it's beautiful forms.
Reunited and it feels so good...
Look what I found: Chocolate SHOES. WHAT???
7. This guy.
Cause he took 9 months of abuse, and still loves me like crazy.
Mommy needs coffee.
Must. have. coffee.
So now I pass this award on to Maribeth.
Showin' the love for my sweet, sweet friend!
