This is a new one for me!!
Susanne hosts this every Friday, over at
Living To Tell the Story
You list your five favorite things from the week. This goes perfectly with my "Attitude of Gratitude" I try to embrace every day.
#1, Origins "Peace of Mind" 25% off, free shipping and free gift wrap! I sent out four as early Christmas presents, to help relieve all that pre-Christmas stress and tension! Less than $8 each, what a deal!!
2. All this fabulous Thomas party ware for our son's 3rd birthday party this weekend. All week, we've talked of little else than his Thomas party with cupcakes, presents and all his friends--he is SO excited! My parents bought (and my mom shopped for) all the party ware stuff for us, decorations included. What a huge blessing!
3. November in Arizona where it's warm enough to wade in Nana's pool...
and play with the hose in the back yard.
4. Celebrating my mom's birthday with a yummy steak dinner by the pool, presents and cake!! And this was despite my car breaking down on the freeway half way there and my hubby coming to rescue me! Thank you, Lord, for your protection and providence!
It made her day that it was the first year her first grandson SUNG "Happy Birthday" to her!! He enjoyed the cake, too.
Here's the purse I ordered from Karen of
Baffin Bags on Etsy
Mom loved it!!
5. All this new paper arriving in the mail from
Jane Says on Etsy
She even threw in two extra packs for free! Thanks, April!
This week exemplifies November in our family--busy, but in the best possible way!
