Let them eat cake

Warning- this is a completely self-centered post.

I'm in a good mood.

The girlies started off their day on a good foot (I've said before that we are not morning people, so good mornings are, unfortunately, not the norm).

I had a good day teaching with a few kids absent so the teacher:kid ratio was wonderful and my dinosaur skeleton/macaroni project had fabulous success.

It's above 40 degrees so we got to go outside for recess and the girlies are playing in the cul de sac right now with friends getting fresh air and hopefully tired out a bit.

I browsed my blog roll and was greeted with some uplifting testaments of God's provision and was encouraged to see the body of Christ uplifting one another.

I'm having a good hair day- Piper did it for me today in her style (sidesweept and a clip) and I had a few compliments at school.

I just got a few bow orders from my website and a custom order off the gymbo chat boards that will be a lot of fun to make for Thing 1 Thing 2 onesies for a gift for a set of twins.

Did I mention it's above 40 degrees? I can't stand being cold!

It's Friday and we are having breakfast for dinner, we are going to play some new board games (probably my new fav Blokus) and watch a DVD together (joined netflix for a Christmas gift... we have a documentary called Ballerina for tonight about some Russian ballerinas and their rehearsal and performance time picked out- Paul will have to deal) AND...

Our local grocery chain was recently sold and the news reported last night that the change over will happen very soon. That means no more of their simply amazing pound cakes. So I had to stop by the bakery while I still can and get a cake. I think I'll go get another when this one is gone in a few days. I'll miss it terribly. It's THAT good. Tonight I'll get to cap my really good day with some yummy cake.

I'm in a good mood.

And there's a cake waiting.



  1. Did you announce that you were really pursuing bringing another girly girl home?? I knew that you were praying about it - what is the agency that you are considering? I am so excited!!!!!

  2. Enjoy that cake! It sounds like the perfect way to top of your "sweet" day! :)

    Don't ya just love those kind of days! It's God smiling down on you!! <><


  5. I'm catching up on blog reading and I just read your LAST post. I am BLOWN away by your husband's public verbalization of your family's intention. THAT IS SO REAL. SO POWERFUL. SO LOVE FILLED. I am so proud of your family and so excited to see plans unfold as your journey continues from "someday" to "today."

    Wow. I think you SHOULD have cake!
    What a reason to celebrate.

    Sending you a hug!

  6. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
