As I reached for the top and sweater hanging up, I noticed that my man had left me a note, neatly printed in his customary all capitals, on the back of one of his business cards. He said "This is very cute. I can't wait to see you in it. Have a great day. I love you!"
Um. Yeah. That's pretty much all it takes to make a girl's heart flutter for a week. My man (the stud on the mountain above) is so good at saying the right thing at exactly the right time. I was struggling the other day, saying all kinds of mean things to myself about my appearance and I looked up at him and said, "I need you to speak truth to me right now." He said nothing. He just reached down, took my face in his big hands and kissed me soundly, like a romance novel.
That was the perfect thing to "say."
And yes. He gets a gold star for the year.
(FYI my phone camera makes me look way skinnier than I actually am. I think that's weird... but also kind of inspirational. Just keepin' it real.) And side note.. I think orange and blue gingham might be my favorite combination on the planet right now.
I spent the day after Becky left, cleaning, organizing and shuffling everything in every room around. (I get bored and like to hang pictures in different places, move pillows, drag things out of closets, and put other things back into them. It's so fun.)
blue mason jars. I filled it with Daisy's potty treats. Bwahahaha.
Really, I did. (And yes, she is finally doing better asking to go outside thanks to the poochie bell and these treats. Whew. Thanks to everyone who weighed in with the AMAZING and helpful tips!!)
Plaid wool throws. Does it get any cozier? I ask you.
And no. It does not.
Sweet simple welcome. I'm not very into fussy Fall decor. I tend to gravitate toward simple and clean. Pumpkins will soon be out though... I do love to add in a few of those.
pies in jars for family this weekend. It can't be helped.
There may or may not be red and white gingham checkered oilcloth toppers for these too.
vintage thermoses right now. I kind of want two more.. but alas Dave Ramsey says "no."
Darn you Dave!!
Dave's a good guy.
How are you all?? Fill me in on what I missed!
