Happy Thankful Thursday yall!! Did you remember to vote for me in Circle of Moms Top 25 Southern Moms? If not be sure to click on the little button to your right. This week has been pretty low key. And I'm very thankful for that because I've needed the time to sort through my hundreds of emails that piled up while I was away. So, if you sent me a message and haven't heard back I'm getting around to it.
I'm also thankful that we had a great time at my cousin and friend's wedding this past weekend. It was such a great feeling to be all glammed up and celebrating with my family and friends. Speaking of friends, I made a new friend at the wedding. She has her own business that focuses on women empowerment. You'll be seeing a post about that soon. She's really trying to do something great and I would love it if all my YUMMs would support her as well!
Last night we put Moo in a big girl bed right next to ours and she did well. She's not quite ready to go to her own room yet, but this is progress. A part of me is happy that she's making even more strikes toward independence. However, there's also a side of me that's a little side because soon she probably will be comfortable sleeping in her own room alone. I'm not going to get too started up about it.
JJ is becoming more talkative. I can see that he's learning because he already knows that the remote works the tv, the toothbrush is for brushing teeth or scratching gums and he can take his pants and diaper off. Not sure if I'm too happy about those last two. One night while we were at my mom's, I woke up thinking his diaper needed to be changed and he had taken it off already and flung it to the foot of the bed! Thank goodness he hadn't peed on me.
I'm thankful that fall is almost here! Summer was good but I'm anxious to see if we'll get some snow and to pig out for Thanksgiving. I've already started Christmas shopping and wrapping presents. All that's missing is a fireplace for me to light a few logs in.
Lastly, I'm thankful that my baby sister will soon be a Queen City resident as well. It's going to feel good to have her just 30 minutes up the road. And did I mention, she'll be attending the same college I went to?!! I'm beyond proud of her. It's not easy to leave a school where you've already made friends and start over again. I'm confident that all will be ok.
What's on your Thankful Thursday list.
