Oh my friends. I fell asleep twice writing this post. Yes I did. I fell asleep with this laptop in my lap. With Mr. Oopsey Daisy's travels picking up quite a bit, my Mommy time seems to be dwindling! It may seem silly, but I need this Mommy Time. Even if it means staying up till 1:00 AM, I will find some time for me!
And today I desperately needed that. Today was just one of those days. The phone didn't stop ringing. I felt myself pulled in a million different directions. There were deadlines to meet and appointments to make. It seemed I was always forgetting to do something or neglecting someone. I had some Mom moments that I am simply not proud of.
Maybe because our family recently started our gratitude tree, my thoughts have been filled with gratitude. I really am blessed. For many reasons. I am blessed to be the Mom of the sweetest Little Man ever. He has a natural instinct to take care of his Mom, and I love that about him! And I am blessed to have a sweet, hardworking, determined husband. And yes, today I am even grateful that, when I discovered in the middle of a project that I hadn't purchased the appropriate paper ahead of time... somehow just the right amount of paper showed up in my paper stash. Hey, sometimes it's the little things!
It must be that time of year because I seem to be loving projects with neutral colors! Here are a few projects that caught my eye this week:
I have been in a serious recipe rut lately. This cheesy pesto pasta salad has definitely peaked my curiosity! I will definitely be making this in the very near future. YUM! Thanks, Smashed Peas and Carrots!
I hope you are following along Positively Splendid's "A Swell Noel" series. I am finding all sorts of fun holiday inspiration! I love this book page ornament that Creations by Kara shared. I would love to have this hanging on our Christmas tree!
