Excitement is not even the correct adjective to begin to describe how I feel at this moment and here is why.
I started the day by not even getting to work at 11 and having Subway for lunch. (Just a sidenote- work should start around 10 or 11 every day!) My kiddos were jumping with joy when I went to pick them up from lunch - tons of hugs and smiles. It was exactly what I needed. After an afternoon with the kids our staff had meetings. My meeting was with my grade level partner - but because she is out until tomorrow for maternity leave - I got to meet with our principal. I was elated because I was explaining what was happening in our first grade world and all she did was COMPLIMENT me! It is such a good feeling to hear the words - "Great job!" "Way to go!" Just makes you want to keep doing what you are doing.
So, after I walked out of school
with a bigger head then normal I got to watch these two little characters:
When I got to their house, they were finishing watching a movie - afterwards we went outside and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine! We played basketball, rode scooters and played with Moose their bulldog.
|My disgustingly beautiful sister with her hubby.|
After playing, I left and decided to stop by the mall to pick up my lovely sister Abby (pictured to the right) a birthday gift... well (Abby if you are reading, sorry for the spoiling the surprise) I wondered into Williams and Sonoma - one of my new favorite stores!
|The most beautiful bowls!|
I found a few items for Abby and then looked to my left when I was at the register and behold what I found....
Now - the utmost reason for my excitement... For our wedding - I had registered for the platter, pitcher, and candlesticks - When I registered they didn't have any plates/bowls. I had received all the above during the wedding - then at Christmas - my mom and dad got me the beautiful SERVING bowl- it is huge and magnificent. Be it to my surprise when I walk back into W&S after Christmas and found 8 of the beauties - ON SALE! Needless to say I bought the 8 and had the lovely lady search all over the world for four more... she couldn't find any more....
Fast Forward to this evening... I FOUND THE FOUR I NEEDED! Now,
I we have a set of 12.
So bottom line.... Who is coming to dinner so I can use them!?!?!
