I have found myself delighting in the little things this week. And because I like to share the love...
-New Christmas CD: Jars of Clay Christmas Songs It's not a typical Christmas album and I love them for that. So good.
-Dinner with friends and Amazing Peanut Butter-Chocolate Molten Cake for dessert. Seriously, is an explanation needed after reading the name of it?!? Delish.
-Special sales at gap.com that gave me 10% off and FREE shipping. Finding stuff for Haven that wasn't more than $4 was an unexpected delight! (sorry it was only for a day so I can't really share this one with you!)
-Email (and if you don't have a gmail account- seriously, what are you waiting for??!! It is far superior!). I honestly love being able to keep in touch with people this way. Haven came up to me the other morning when I had just gotten on the computer and said, "Emu?" (which was her asking me if I was emailing) Makes me laugh that email is part of my 21 month-old's vocab!
-The Samaritan's Purse Gift Catalog is one stop Christmas shopping. Cale and I are planning on blessing lots of people with "gifts" from here. I know a lot of organizations do things like this, but I am a fan of SP and like being able to support their ministry in this way.
-A new issue of Real Simple ready to dive into. The smooth pages and unused crease are calling my name. The Christmas issue is always a fav- especially the 50 gifts for $50 or less. More than a few gifts have been inspired by this list.
-Sewing! I have been on a roll the last few days and been able to cross several of my projects off my list. And they are so cute! They have been fairly simple projects, but they're adorable and I made them so I am taking pride in my craftmanship.
-And it's Friday! Which we all know means Friday Night Lights! I do believe that my deep and abiding love for this show has been well documented so I won't get into again. I heart FNL.
