one. Pay It Forward.
This morning a stranger paid for the woman in front of me. She then turned around and said, “Hey, I’m going to buy your coffee!” This is the first time a stranger has ever paid it forward when I was involved. I, of course, paid it forward and bought the man’s coffee behind me. While I waited for my breakfast sandwich, I saw the act of kindness continue through the line of TEN people waiting in Starbucks.
two. You’ve been BOOED!
Another reason why I love my school – the teachers are booing each other! In my pumpkin I received a “Trick or Treat” bag filled with pumpkin spice k-cups, a “Smell My Feet” bag with nail polish, lotion, and socks for ANNABELLE (so thoughtful!), a “Give Me Something Good To Eat” bag with garlic stuffed olives (for bloody marys) and then a Halloween bucket with Halloween pencils and an apple candle. So. Fun.
three. real life blog friends.
Yesterday Annabelle and I met my REAL LIFE blog friend Kim and her daughter Lia for a bit after work. She started reading my blog while she was pregnant (and due a week before me) and emailed me last year to chat about being pregnant. We became pen pals and when she told me she was moving to Georgia I knew it was kismet!
Now we are real life friends and our daughters – well we have big plans for them. Clearly Annabelle felt threatened by Lia’s cuteness (which she is seriously the cutest baby ever with the most adorable SMILE and dimples!). I am so thankful to have Kim and Lia in my life – they are from New York and I feel like we can really bond over not only being new Moms, but also being New England transplants in the South.
four. Bearitos Veggie Puffs. Get in my belly. Now.
Annabelle, Brandon, and I are obsessed with these organic Veggie Puffs from Whole Foods. We may or may not have eaten a whole bag on Saturday. Then I went and bought 2 for $4 on Wednesday and we’ve already powered through another bag. I think we are addicted.
five. blog awards.
I totally forgot about blog awards! A few years ago they were always going around… and then they disappeared. Thank you to Ashley from Girl Talk for the Lovely Blog Award!
