I read this today on someone else's blog and thought it was interesting to sit and reflect on myself and my life. I pulled this from SweetFunkyVintage.. my amazing friend Missy and her friend Liz have a darling clothing line made with fun and funky fabrics and darling patterns. They amaze me to no end. I really need to get this blog rolling along, so I thought that this was a great way to do so...

For Today

Outside my window: It's dark. Night. Cool. Night brings me creativity.. quiet. It's good.

I am thinking: about my future. I plan to go back to hair dressing this fall. I am excited and nervous and happy and sad all in one. I love being home with my boys, but I love the fullfillment of working in such an amazing and creative way. I MISS doing hair. With all my being I miss it... but I am sad that I will miss being my sons' Mom at home.

I am thankful for: my life and the blessing I realize everyday. I have an amazing husband. He is a good man, good father. He has put up with me and my kooky ways for a long time now.. we met and started dating in 1991. We married in 95. 15 years in FEB. He's still as handsome as ever...

From the kitchen: I'm making friendship bread. Over and over again... and it's wonderful. I keep a starter with every batch, and bake it again in 10 days. I keep one loaf for us. We don't eat all of it, but we do enjoy what we have. I send one loaf in for the guys in Derrick's office. They devour it quickly and send home Thanks with Derrick. I enjoy the whole process.

I am wearing: my capris. A blue T shirt. Bare feet. I'm comfortable. I am wearing something saucy for my 20 year reunion in two weeks, though... *whistle*

I am reading:- No books. I want the new one by Cecelia Ahern. I've read all of her books and she is wonderful. I do read my newspaper every morning.

I am creating: cute owl jammies. I bought vintage looking velvet ribbon for the tie string. They are capri legnth and I"m putting a bit of cotton lace around the bottom. I cut them low so they sit on your hips. Cute Comfy Cool.

One of my favorite things: Housewives of OC, NY, NJ... I love those crazy housewives!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Derrick is working on finishing the yard. I am working on my jammas, a few purses... getting Gavin ready to go to Tucson for a week with his buddies. My reunion is in two weeks! Going to the beach with the Dewey family and my boys on Weds. Life is good. The air is sweet and I am feeling so blessed with my life.
