Things I Love…

A tidy bedroom and a neatly made bed

Clutter hidden safely out of sight

The blinds open to let natural light in

Jack’s new Pumas


Origins checks and balances face wash

Burts Bees lip balm

Mrs. Meyer’s cleaning products

When my husband unloads the dishwasher

Toasted bagels with generous cream cheese

Pandora in the mornings

The Message

The smell of my rosemary plant

A fresh stack of new-to-me magazines

The tiniest green shoots promising day lilies and crocuses’

A cleaned-off desk

My new sweater…only $7

When Jack signs ‘please’

Farm Chicks in The Kitchen Cookbook

Facebook messages

Sunshine peeking through tired clouds

A walk outside

Sore legs from said walk

The smell of my son’s hair

Fleecy footy pajamas

Jack’s warm little body heavy against my shoulder as he sleeps

The quite of evening

When my husband takes my car to get washed

20 minute power naps (my saving grace these days)

Laughter floating through the house as made up games are played in the bathtub

Red painted toenails

The ultrasound pictures of my growing babe reminding me all is well.

Tell me…what do you love today?

    When my son says “mama”–never gets old.
    Seeing my son greet my husband when he gets home from work.
    Greeting my son after a nap or night of sleep–smiling and happy.
    Hearing my son’s giggles.
    A hot cup of coffee just the way I like it.
    A warm blanket and a sweet treat.
    Hugs from the hubby.
    Being your prego-blogger bud–I’m due in July, too! 🙂

    Have a nice weekend!

    I just stumbled upon your blog Andrea. Congrats on the new little one! I too treasured every ultrasound that brought good news.

    I am currently enjoying:
    Getting more than 3 hours of sleep at a time
    The smiles that have finally arrived on the boys’ faces
    Cuddling before bedtime with my older kids
    The prospect of a date night, even though it keeps getting rescheduled

    So clear why we are friends. I’d be plagiarizing half your list to make my own! Mrs. Meyers cleaning products are fantastic. (I noticed we both are using Lemon Verbena.) Also try Cucina brand if you have the chance. Pandora in the mornings too– Sara Bareilles is my current thread. All things related to the love of my dear child. Earl Grey Double Bergamot tea. Bergamot generally– loving some Caldrea Cypress Bergamot lotion and soap right now. I love grocery shopping. And talking to Ada throughout the store, even if people look at me strangely. I love working outdoors, but haven’t really had the chance lately. Seeing the green bits of protruding day lily also inspired me! I am tentatively scheduled to go out and hack away at a bush that has been bothering me.

    Nice job on your list of things to be grateful for. I needed a few moments of peace and reflection this week myself, as you know. Another thing I really enjoy is writing a diary to Ada. Instead of just writing in a journal for me, I write to her. It is very cathartic and it makes me happy to think she will it have it someday as an adult. She will know how loved she is! xx

    I love…
    a good home-cooked meal
    a clean kitchen, brought back to order after said meal
    my morning coffee
    my evening beer
    my mid-day herbal tea (I’m a beverage person, obviously)
    a nice, long run
    my son’s belly laugh
    date night
    homemade marshmallows – yum!
    8 straight hours of sleep

    I could go on and on. I’m lucky to have so much to love in my life!
