Monday, oh how I hate thee!

For as long as I can remember I've always hated Mondays. When I was younger, Monday meant another week of school. When I was out of school Mondays meant another week of work and now that I'm married Mondays mean I have to say goodbye to my husband...early. Mondays always come bright and early. I'm spoiled on the weekend, most times I get to gradually wake up with my husband and we usually have fun things to do that keep us happy and occupied on the weekends. Plus, I have an extra pair of hands to help care for the little one.

I've been thinking lately about my days here at home with the baby. Some days go by more slowly then others...and then some fly by. I think it all depends on what I have going on in the day. Tuesdays for example seem to go by pretty quickly. Every other Tuesday, I have MOMS in the morning and then Small Group in the evening. I tend to like Tuesdays more so then any other weekday just because I'm out of the apartment and doing fun things. I've been thinking about incorporating more things into my daily routine just to spice up my days a bit...for instance, I dragged out my sewing machine from the baby's closet yesterday. I've had some sewing projects that have been adding up and I'm hoping to tackle some of those today. I'm also wanting to start up my scrapbook again too. I really haven't touched that stuff since I got married (yes, that means I have yet to scrapbook my wedding...not to mention my little baby boy). I'm also looking forward to the warmer weather. I'll be able to take the little one out on walks, which will do us both good, getting some fresh air and some much needed sun. I'm also looking forward to having some "mommy time" out on the balcony once the baby goes down for his afternoon nap. That was one of my favorite things to do last year while pregnant. I would go out on the balcony, prop my feet up, and either journal, read a book or call my mom or a friend, meanwhile catching some rays and breathing in the fresh clean air. I hated saying goodbye to my chair and the beautiful view once the cold weather came around. *Sigh* I have a good feeling about this Summer, but I have a feeling I'll still dread and hate Mondays. :)

Here's one of my new favorite pictures of my Son


The cutest Peeps ever! I prefer the taste of the regular ones better though ;)

We are His portion and He is our prize...

I've had this song in my head for a few days now. I love Kim Walkers voice and the passion that she portrays in this song. McMillan did a wonderful job in writing this song, the lyrics are so profound and encouraging and...different (the "sloppy wet kiss" part makes me smile). I especially love the first part of this song...

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves …

Happy {Third} Birthday, Miles!

My baby turned three two weeks ago today. ::Hallelujah Chorus:: 
Two was a hard year for us. Miles' big brother at age 2 was great and so fun! I loved that year with Simon. I would eye-roll whenever anyone would label 2 as the terrible year. Simon got his terrible on at 18m...and again at 3. The odd years seem to be harder for him. But then Miles came along and I was able to fully appreciate the terrible of two. Towards the end of year two (or technically would that be year three?), I started to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Miles is talking more, communicating better and understands at a deeper level. Three has to be better, it just has to!


I believe in birthday weeks. We kinda had to do that with Miles anyway. I guess that's what happens when ones birthday is on a Monday and your birthday party isn't scheduled until the following weekend. We had to keep it alive somehow so he wouldn't be so confused when his party came around. ;)

We celebrated his actual …

My favorite flower. The peony.

The peony is my favorite flower. They have always held a special place in my heart. For as long as I can remember, they've grown in my childhood backyard. My mom has a plant from the house I was born in, their current house - the house I grew up in - and a plant from my Great-Grandma. As kids, we would watch in awe as the ants crawled over the peony buds, almost willing them to open. It was a chore getting those little suckers off once the flowers were ready to be cut and brought into the house. But it was worth the effort.

My dad has always commented that the flowers smell like old lady perfume. Haha!  I still think of that when I bring the blooms up to my nose for a whiff of Spring. They're such a romantic flower. I wanted them for my bridal bouquet, but they had already stopped blooming by the time June 3rd rolled around. So sad.

Apartment living was dreary for me when it came to flowers. No lilacs, tulips or peonies. When we moved to our current house, I was …
