What a GLORIOUS day!!! So much to be Thankful for!!!
First… I missed Made for Monday!! I actually made something too :) Look at this little card I made for Mia’s birthday party… She’s 1 and just the sweetest!!! I triple cut the butterflies and layered them for dimension… I thought it came out cute…
And now… Thankful for… a stretch (ok, 2 days… but that’s more than we’ve had!!) of beautiful days!!! It is so nice outside!!
We had a wonderful time at little Mia’s birthday party last weekend!!! It’s so wonderful to be able to get together with family and celebrate!! We’re not going to be able to call her “little” for long though, holy cow, She’s getting big!! Kathryn thought she was just wonderful, and had a blast playing with her!!
I picked up my glasses this week!! I don’t think they’ve ever seen anyone so excited to pick up glasses!! I can SEE clearly!! It’s taking some getting used to because they are progressive, and it’s a little tricky to find the “clear” spot, depending on what you’re looking at, but I’ve been psyched to not have to squint so much :) fewer fine lines and wrinkles :) I think they’re cute, and have worn them all day at school the last couple of days… I haven’t been driving with them on yet though, I’m still getting lots of “wishy washy” stuff at the bottom of my vision…
Just got home from Kohl’s and getting the kids some summery clothes, Sean didn’t have a single pair of shorts that fit him… Of course, I had a coupon, and saved more than I spent (does anyone ever go to Kohl’s without a coupon?? I know I never do…)
I’m also thankful that Mike is going to need to go to CA for work, ’cause we’re going with him!!! I’ve never been, and am so excited to see everything out there!!!
The kiddos are going to have a sleepover party this weekend with Meema and Auntie!!! Just one night, but it’s a night off :) They’ll have a blast, they always do :)
You may be wondering… What’s that crazy girl doing about her Theology Degree decision?? Well… For the moment, I’ve decided to take some continuing education type courses and try to ease into it a bit… I’m already signed up for a class that starts in June… It’s through the University of Notre Dame’s STEP program (Satellite Theological Education Program)… I figure it can’t hurt to know something before I jump into things, it’s not hugely expensive, and I’m *just kinda* OCD, so this may satisfy my OCness :) and if I win the lottery and discover I can actually afford the $500 a credit for the program I want to get into, then at least I’ll actually know something going in…
I hope the weather stays nice… And that everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!
