It's the little things...

...that sometimes make your day bright.

Here are some things this week that made me smile, despite the crazy, hectic, already-nuts week I've had.

-Receiving a card in the mail from a blog-friend just to let me know she was thinking about me and praying for our little baby girl. Thank you Lauren!

-Getting a $99 check back in the mail from something I overpaid a few months ago. Hello money!

-Putting together my swap-mate's package! I can't wait for her to get it.

-Getting all my credit card rewards in the form of gift cards to: Best Buy, Panera, Chiles, and Starbucks. Yessss!

-Reading all your sweet comments about my l&d trip yesterday. You all really care and I can feel that, totally. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

-Feeling my little lady move literally ALL day yesterday just to tell me she's 'okay' and to ease my mind.

-Getting an unexpected thank-you gift in the form of a lovely gift card to a favorite restaurant, all for watching a doggie we already love, who's welcome at our house anytime!

-Opening the microwave and standing in awe at the amazing cleanliness of it. Smiling because these are some of the little reasons that I just adore my husband.

-That same husband who says, "Hey Babe, want me to make your lunch for you?" as I'm sitting on the couch with my feet up.

-An unexpected helper showing up to help me hang the Art Show at my school a few days ago.

-Going through the resume's of people hawking my job when I'll be out on maternity leave, and realizing that the kids will be in good hands.

-Just the sheer thought of snow coming, and a possible 2-hour-delay.

Happy Wednesday!
