Thankful Thursdays Top Ten [#9]

Charles and I have been tossing around the idea of going to Chicago for weeks. It's only a 5 hour drive from where we are staying. With our trip being half over and it growing colder we knew we needed to go sooner than later.

Tonight on the couch we decided...lets go...TOMORROW! He's going to use his paid time off he has been holding onto. It's set. We booked a hotel for three nights. I might not blog much because I'll be busy for four days getting on and off the double decker bus.

I'm excited and terrified. It was 11pm when we decided so here I sit at 1:23 am with wet hair, no clean diapers, clothes in piles, dishes in sink, washer running and a growing list of things to do.

What better way to add to the stress?

To keep things short and easy today's Thankful's were inspired from my last 10 iPhone photos.

Thankful This Week For:

1-I'm always thankful when I'm pregnant, and if I am, I'd still be,
but I'd also appreciate a few more months to loose more baby weight.
I didn't run this week, that may not have helped.

2-I bought [and carried] a purse in who knows how long. It's exciting. Although I do miss carrying all my contents out to my car in my hands and loosing things in the stores.

3-A Moses Sandwich. It's low in calories, but high in laughter.

4-the iPhone's ability to snap inconspicuous photos of hilarious people
 who wear fancy sweat suits that match their twin boy and girls'.
[I will need to crop this photo later so you can see more clearly.]

5-McCann's Irish Oatmeal. It's great for milk supply, healthy, real, and my whole family eats it
[with sugar of course].

6-A much needed manicure. I decided to go a shade of Fall and veer from my normal boring clear. Nevermind that my nail tech told me my fingers were puffy from having kids or that I was pale. 

7-Ohio sunsets. They are gorgeous day after day.
I think it's the lack of pollution compared to Atlanta? I don't know. I will miss them.

8-Being able to find things in my purse, that I now carry, yay! Can anyone guess what that purple thing is? Clearly I drink lots of bottled water and steal corn from the corn maze.

9-Boys that do fight, but have moments like this where it's shear love [wanting to sit together on the same row]!

10-My ever adorable 6 month old who is as active as ever...crawling, pulling up and standing for long periods of time.
I wonder when he'll get those two teeth in he is working so hard at.

In conclusion...I can't wait to make my camera wish it was never born this weekend and spend lots of memorable time with my little family.

[and I hope I run into Oprah]


  1. Have a fun trip to Chicago! Maybe you can get tickets to Oprah. Ha.

  2. The pregnancy test end cover. :-)

  3. Darn! Adrienne took my answer! :P I'm happy you are not preggo yet because you promised me a blond haired blue eyed boy and I'm not quite ready to get back in production for your brown eyed girl. :)

  4. we are so like that-last minute trip. i know y'all will have fun but i hope you don't run into oprah-well, you could tell her about Jesus. i saw the preg test and i thought you were pregnant-i had to read the code even though of taken so many. i hear you on the purse-we're just back packing it now but before Love was born i used a purse for a month. that is so cute-we would do pierce sandwiches with pierce-i forgot about that until i saw the pic. we'll have to make a Love sandwich. i liked the black matching sweat suit. i'm eating oatmeal every morning too! i saw the nails i was like-no way candi painted her nails a dark color-i like it! i remember when you used to color coordinate your closet according to color. i CANNOT believe Moses!!! that is amazing!

  5. LOVE these pictures. (especially the mom with her matching twins) AND the nail polish. You've inspired me. Way to go on the spontaneity too! You guys will have a blast. Chicago is so great. What a great post.
