Back at Saturday again folks and this Saturday, the girls are starting their very, first Saturday of Soccer. Also, Emma is having her 4th birthday party at the local gymnastics party with her school friends. Yet, it seems like I blinked earlier in the week and somehow here we are again back at the weekend! Another great week behind us, but now it is time for another weekend.
Once again, I am adding my ten thankful things from the week here to the Ten Things of Thankful.
- Having a 5 day weekend, starting with the 4th of July through this past Monday with Kevin being off from work to enjoy the holiday weekend with the girls and I.
- Getting to go out to dinner and dessert, too with Kevin, while his parents watched the girls so we could have a bit of alone time to celebrate our 7th Wedding Anniversary.
Celebrate Our Anniversary With Yummy Ice Cream!!
- Seeing Monsters University on Saturday with Kevin, the girls, our niece and nephew, Kevin’s sister and our good friend, too.
- Lots more pool time too, especially since it has been 90 plus degrees for over a week now (no complaints here, because we all know how much I love this time of year and the hot weather).
- Wonderful barbecue time with Kevin, the girls and our family including hamburgers, hots dogs, grilled chicken panini’s and more during this long weekend.
- That my car ended up not needing to be fixed at the mechanic’s when we thought for sure there was indeed something amiss on the weekend, when it was acting a bit strange (seems it was just a batch of bad gas that caused the problem).
- For wonderful bloggy friends who left me such lovely messages on our anniversary, as well as on my Letting Go post. Truly meant the world to me and put smiles on my face.
- Having a reliable and reasonable plumber that came right away when our sink was backing up, fixed it and didn’t charge us an exuberant amount.
- Believe it or not, I am excited and happy the girls are trying soccer out for the summer time, because they have been talking about it for months, but couldn’t join as it would have conflicted with dance.
- For another long weekend, with Kevin having another Monday off for vacation and getting to take the time off to enjoy it with him!!
Hopefully with More Fun Pool-Times!!
11. Adding a number eleven this week, because I can. And that is that I am so happy that I have the skills and no how to update and redesign my own blog (Had a bit of fun on Thursday afternoon, in case you wondering about the new look!!!
