A good day!

Wow. 2 blog posts, back to back. Try not to fall out of your chairs!

I am having such a good day. It started this morning when Mitchell crawled into bed with Chris and I before we were ready to get up. He asked if I was still sleepy and I said yes so he said "Well, then I'll just rub your back, Mommy."

And he did, too! Little sweetie.

Then, he decided he would pick out clothes for himself and for Georgia. They are all matchy matchy today with jeans, the same long sleeved shirt and a short sleeved shirt over the top. So cute!

Two of my three clients cancelled for today, but my in-laws still wanted to keep the kids the whole day so that means I get time *gasp!* to myself!! Amazing. On top of THAT, my dad called and asked if I had time for lunch today, so for the first time in years...I got to have a little date with just my Daddy. It was so fun!

I stopped on the way home to get a Chipotle gift card for my brother's birthday and well, Starbucks is next door, so you know I was all over that. (It's snowing today - definitely a coffee day since I skipped having any this morning!) Last year sometime, Sarah posted about one of her favorite drinks there and while I've tried it iced, I've never had the hot version.

'Til today! And girlfriends, it is gooooooooood.

Oh, and because it's soooooo not the way I ordered it, but it's the way the cashier told the barista to make it, I will share with you the official way to order it: grande, decaf, 1 pump cinnamon dolce white mocha with no whip. It really does taste just like a snickerdoodle! Mmmmmmm!!! Such a great little treat for me today.

Now, I'm off to fold laundry and run the vaccuum. Later, I think I'll lay on the couch and watch tv until it's time to get the kids. I still have 2 and a half more hours of me time! So cool.

Thank you, Lord for giving me days like today and for people who love me so much to make days like this possible.

Wow, I did do a double take when I saw your name in my bloglines. Okay, I may need your number so I can call you on my cell phone when I'm in the Starbucks line next time...not sure I can remember all that ;-)

That is awesome that you had time for yourself. A little ME time is always good and refreshing. I like reading your blog. Got from my friend Mari and you sound so upbeat and full of life. Awesome!

What a fun day. We need those once in a while. I wish I would be able to remember that drink when I would order; I would feel kind of stupid reading the ingredients off a paper...

WOO HOO for "me" time! That's great and what a sweet Daddy to take you to lunch!
