If you follow me on instagram, you know we started potty training this week.
Day one was tough. But, day two was better and day 3, I am ecstatic to report that we were accident-free on day 3! That's a major big deal.
With all the staying home and working with the 2.5 year old, things can get a little bleak at times. So, in an effort to look to the bright side, I decided to make note of things around around the house that I'm thankful for.
1. This necklace.
I had Hannah, do a little custom color combo of her necklace from her shop. I love it for so many reasons and one of those is the fact that it reminds me of my dream! I know, a lot of you are still waiting for me to share to details on that dream and I will. Just not today. Hopefully very soon though.
Anyway, Hannah has tons of other super cute things in her shop. Go now and see for yourself!
2. This album.
Every morning we pump it up after breakfast and fill the house with praise. It's amazing how a little worship music can help a sour mood when an accident happens. It's been vital to my sanity this week and I ended up making a little print with the lyrics from one of my favorite songs.
Also, little bit of history for ya, I met Chris Tomlin back in the day. I was in high school and kind of thought we would get married. I mean look at us, we were even matching.
God had different plans for both of our lives. I'm pretty happy with how mine's turned out so far but I can't speak for Chris :) Ha.
3. The Vitamix.
I got it for Christmas after
oooohing and aaahhhing over it for years. I have used it EVERY single
day since. No joke. Every day. Sometimes twice a day. Like yesterday, smoothies for breakfast then salsa in the afternoon.
It's the real deal folks. I'll
devote a whole post on my love for the Vitamix later, but just know, I
4. This print.
I got it from Heather's shop before Christmas and now it sits proudly on my mantle. It's just perfect for my house. The quote is pure awesomeness and on top of that - the antlers and added touch of girly. Love it. So yeah, go to her shop and bookmark it as a fave.
And two more.
5. This song.
It's really catchy and gets stuck in my head
every time I hear it. I can't really understand all the words - and
will probably end up googling them after I type this - and I don't
completely understand the meaning but goodness, it just makes me happy.
If if weren't super cold and there weren't two kiddos in the backseat, I
would roll my windows down and crank up the volume every time it came
Also, the husband had KC lights on his high school car. So there's that.
6. The mug.
My friend, Katy, shipped it to me. Our
Target's were all out and she loves cats so much she just had to pass on
that love with me. Kidding. If you know Katy, she doesn't really care
much for the feline variety. It probably pained and embarrassed her when
she was in the checkout line with it but she's super sweet like that.
Mug-swappers for life.
She also has an awesome shop. Go see for yourself.
Sometimes it's the little things. Sometimes it's the big things. And I'm going to keep this pretty light, as most of my posts are, but really folks, none of those things matter.
Sure. They make me smile. Dance. Sing. Drink. Whatever. But without Jesus in my life, I wouldn't even know happiness and he's been my real strength this week with the potty training. He's teaching me to enjoy life more in him and just be free.
Bet you didn't see that coming, especially since one of my loves was a questionable country song!
Ha. Just keepin it real folks.
