Multitudes on Mondays...#331-340

Thankful for:

331.  A fantastic date with my favorite guy in the universe.  (Although if you're looking for a date night movie, may I recommend *against* "The Vow"?  Channing Tatum may be the worst thing Hollywood has spit out in a long time, and I think that's saying something.)

Happy-drunk to be having a night alone!
332.  A fun day-trip to Asheville with my parents.  We had a lovely brunch at the Corner Kitchen and then a wonderful time walking around in the warm spring weather, taking in the little shops and the fresh air.
333.  The special relationships my kids have with their Nana and PaPa.
Lucy and Nana, playing peek-a-boo post-waffles.

Will and PaPa, taking in the toy train at the Christmas store.

334.  The way my kids just glow with happiness while playing at the park. 

335.  The Jumping Beans brand of clothes at Kohl's, on sale for $5.99 each piece.  I just couldn't rationalize spending even $2 more per piece at Gymboree, at least for true play clothes, which is what we needed most of.  I love the clothes we got -- see above!  (I will be darkening the door of a Gymboree next month when the budget allows, though; I adore their spring lines for both genders.)
336.  These beauties for only $6.99 (are you sensing that I love to get a lot for just a little?).

Thank you, Fresh Market!
337.  Ghirardelli Ultimate Chocolate brownies.  Diet-schmiet. 
338.  Several nights in a row of uninterrupted sleep. 
339.  That Peyton has landed on his feet in Denver (just like my gut told me).  I know he is going to do great things for the city and for the Broncos...and my husband has promised me a #18 jersey in blue and orange!
340.  The way lemonade tastes after a long hiatus.

Amen to the brownies. Ghiradelli is my favorite! ANd a big yes to the Jumping Beans brand at Kohl's. So affordable that when the kids spill all over their clothes, I don't go into cardiac arrest!

Yep! I'm all about having the really cute clothes for kiddos but seriously -- I'm not going to garb them in $40 outfits for playing at the park or schlumming around the house! (Who does that???) I want some of the nicer items I've seen and we'll definitely get those for church, going out to eat, parties, etc. But until then, Jumping Beans will do just fine! :)

Meijer has that Jumping Beans brand, and I just hit the jackpot with their winter clothes at 50% off. And for the most part, it's very cute stuff...at beautiful prices!
In that top photo, I can tell that both of you have lost weight! You guys look great and healthy and happy. I love it!

Thank you! You can definitely see a difference in Marty (minus 30-some pounds, how could you not?) but not me so much. I've only lost a handful -- STILL. I'm not as disciplined as Marty has been with the exercise, and weight loss really is a partnership of eating right and exercising. I've got the one down but the other is still so tough for me. I don't like to sweat! :)
