I l♥ve Saturdays.

I love Saturdays. Especially Saturdays like today. There's nothing better then waking up next to your husband without an annoying alarm clock going off and finding that it's already 10:30am. I'm grateful to Simon for letting us sleep in like that. It's fun going in to get Simon up with Peter, seeing him smiling up at us and playfully blowing raspberries as I lean down to pick him up. I also love seeing his happy smile and his eyes light up as he realizes that his daddy is home and not at work. I enjoy lazy Saturday mornings with huge breakfasts consisting of scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes and turkey bacon...and of course a hot cup of coffee. Not every Saturday is like this, but when this happens I'm happy.


My wonderful husband bought me a color laser printer last week and I'm loving it (thank you ebay!!). I don't cringe every time I print something off for fear of running out of ink a few weeks later. It's a beautiful printer and I'm very happy with it. Now I can print off coupons without guilt and become one of those crazy money-saver moms/wives. ;)

On a depressing note, I'm becoming discontented with my current wardrobe, yet again. I'm ready for Spring to come and with it a different assortment of clothing. I'm weary of sweaters and jackets and bulky coats. One thing that stood out to me when Peter and I attended the Song of Solomon conference last Saturday was Pastor Mark telling everyone about how he sets money aside and every few months takes his wife out to buy new clothes, he actually goes with her, sits in the sitting room and tips department workers to bring clothes for his wife to try on. Now that's one spoiled and loved women. lol. I totally can't see Peter doing that, but in his defense he shows me love in different ways, so I'm content. But daaaang! ;)


It's been awhile since I've bought at fun and cute shoes. I just happened to run across these shoes at two different places. I bought each pair for $5. Happiness. I really do love shoes, especially heals. I feel taller, more confidant and my jeans fit better when I have added height brought to my 5'3 figure. Darn snow makes this a difficult feat, but I still sneak them on every so often. ;)

Well, that's all the time that I have to blog. I must now go get ready for the day and the upcoming errands that we must run, library and Target. May the Lord bless you all with a wonderful snow covered weekend. :)

P.S. Happy 18 month birthday, little-boy-Simon!! Mommy loves you. ♥♥

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 …

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 birthday, husband.

My husband celebrated his birthday on Wednesday. It was a very laid-back birthday (per his request). I didn't want his birthday to be boring and yet I wanted to respect his wishes. This year he bought his own present (something that he really wanted and only he could buy since I have no expertise in the world of hunting), so I knew gifts were going to be small and not *that* special. 

I decided to go all out and make yummy food and treats and surprise him with those. I made cinnamon rolls the day before, hiding them in the refrigerator the next morning. The morning of his birthday, I snuck down, popped the chilled dough in the oven and made some coffee, sneaking back upstairs to get the baby up. The smell of them baking+the smell of the coffee brewing was intoxicating and a wonderful smell to wake up to. He was able to enjoy a hot roll right out of the oven with a cup of coffee before heading off to work. They were a yummy birthday treat and I think they were one of his favorite th…
