currently in september

Hey there! Please excuse my long absence! I had a busy, busy week last week with my mother in law who is visiting from Texas. We spent the week decorating Lani and Evie's new room (what used to be the baby's room) per Lani's birthday request. :) It's too cute in there now... all thanks to my mother-in-law's generosity. how's your September going?

This is what's currently happening in my life: 
currently in september
making last minute invitations to Lani's birthday celebration this weekend. She requested a pajama party.

loving that both of little ones are napping right now (the older two are in school)! Ah. Free time.

listening to the Your Move podcast nearly every day. I recently completed the "Taking Responsibility for Your Life" series. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: this podcast is like free, daily therapy.

starting The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes tonight. I recently picked it up from hold at the library. I'm looking forward to it. (I really liked Me Before You by Jojo Moyes). 

watching Star Wars with Jesse, my brother in law Oscar, and my sister Jasmine. We just watched The Empire Strikes Back. (This is us being nice to our husbands... just kidding... kinda... are you a fan?)

regrouping myself. I fell behind with my goals and activities, but that's okay. Every day is a new opportunity, right??

needing to remember that "a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down." I recently watched the play Mary Poppins, and when I listened to the song "A Spoonful of Sugar," I realized that all work and no play makes life too hard. A "spoonful of sugar" (leisurely/enjoyable activities) will help the "medicine" (housework/other work) go down.

looking for a light-hearted TV series to watch with Jesse. Know any good ones?

drinking Del Taco strawberry lemonades (still!). I will be switching to pumpkin lattes soon. (Hi, Denise! ;)

hoping to finish Addy and Juli's new room (my older girl's old room) by this weekend. My mother in law also got a few, fun additions for their room- a new rug and a new mirror for example.

itching to host a swap... I'm thinking a whimsy jar swap... would you be interested??

enjoying my family. I am very blessed with these people. They enrich my life like nothing else.

celebrating Juli turning 2 today. Oh, happy birthday, my little love. (I've sang the birthday song several times today).

baking cupcakes tonight. She's eager for cupcakes and candles. :)

missing this little space of mine. I plan to blog daily as I have in the past. This blog is a "spoonful of sugar" for me. Thanks for sticking around. :)
