Thankful Thursday Top Ten #43

Ready for vacation!

Sorry folks, I meant to post more but every time I sat down to write that nagging little "you have other responsibilities to take care of" voice popped into my head.  I have a couple half finished posts so hopefully next week will be better :)

1. Vacation
-my parents are watching the girls next weekend so my husband and I have some alone time.
-the girls, Morgan and I are going to Indianapolis soon to spend time with family, go to an indoor water park and the children's museum!

2. Spending
-Hubs and I were talking last night about my spending "game".  I think I mentioned the goal is to do all shopping one day a week and stay under a specific dollar amount.  If I think of it as a restriction, not so much fun.  If I think of it as a game it is quite entertaining!  My first week went out the window because I bought myself jeans (50% off with an additional 15% $10) and diapers for Grace but this past week I did pretty well!

3. Story time
-we went to the library's story time on Wednesday.  Grace did a great job and had a lot of fun!  I think we're going to try to go every week.

4. Flexible kids
-they really need a better eating schedule but they do pretty well with what we've got now.  I need to be more purposeful about this though.

5. Babies
-my good friend is going to have a baby sometime within the next week (although if I had to put money on it I would guess tonight or tomorrow - don't tell her that though!)

6. Information
-tonight I have a meeting with some people that we work with to see what we can be doing better.  I'm excited and nervous all at the same time!

7. Dad
-my dad's birthday was last week so we are going out to dinner and to a hockey game!  I'm excited.  He's an awesome man and I'm glad he's my dad!

8. Princesses
-they are doing such a great job and we only have two Bible studies until we're done!  Then it's Princess Day!!

9. Experiencing God
-I think three of my girls are going to go through Experiencing God with me when the Princess Program is over

10. Truth
-I'm thankful there are absolutes out there and we can always fall back on them.
