Thankful Thursday: May 24, 2012

It's 1pm at my house.

The two babies are snoozing to the hum of 
the dishwasher, the dryer, the washing machine, 
and Sesame Street (downstairs entertaining the anti-nap preschooler)

I wouldn't mind zoning out 
with a little SS myself
but I've got other things on my To Do list

newborn shoot edits,
Thank You notes,
budget listing, 
grocery-list writing,
package preparing,
and my newest time consumer...

browsing local MLS listings
to find the best bang for our buck.

In the middle of 
what feels like
a very crazy week
I definitely need to sit down 
and sip on a tall glass of gratitude.

I'm Thankful For:

-a fantastic first family 5k adventure last Saturday
-lovely sunshine & outside play with my 3 monkeys (littlest monkey enjoys quilt time under the shade tree)
