On today's happy list:
*It's DH's birthday - HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the best husband and daddy anyone could ask for! We are celebrating with an overnight to Boston next month, complete with tix to see Dirty Dancing (the play I wasn't even aware had become a play and am out of my mind about seeing!), compliments of my brother - can't wait!
*We have the cutest, most amazing little girl - as soon as she got up, the MH gave her daddy a huge birthday hug and kiss, and ran to get him a few special birthday presents. These included a Mickey and Minnie book (complete with her own special reading), a pink Care Bears elephant to sleep with whenever he wants, and as he was walking out the door to work, she ran after him to say "I just wanted to remind you that Mommy and I would like to take you to lunch for your birthday!". I could eat her up!
*Even though it's hubby's birthday, he brought ME coffee in bed (well, he does that every morning if I'm awake, so it's always on my happy list), and (way before going into her room to get a birthday kiss and hug when we knew she was starting to wake up) made the MH her sippy cup of chocolate milk (without animal crackers) so I wouldn't have to get out of bed to do it. Did I mention he's the best hubby and daddy ever?
*MH and I are taking a ride down to Daddy's work today to take him out for a birthday lunch.
*I finally got a cooling pad for my laptop so I can now rest assured that my motherboard will not burn out as hubby has convinced me it could (also happy the bottom of my computer isn't feeling so hot on my lap anymore!).
*Snowpants! Remember how I couldn't find them anywhere because I was an unprepared Mommy? I found and entire set (one of 4 left and the only size 4T) - complete with parka, snowpants, and mittens for $16 at BJ's yesterday! And it's adorable! And pink! And great quality! And it fits the MH perfectly! And the $16 price tag? Not even a clearance price!
*That huge snowstorm we were supposed to get? Didn't amount to much at all! Had a great time having friends over Saturday night during said "storm" playing Rock Band and American Idol on the Wii for hours. A pee-your-pants great time.
*Loving Twitter. And my new favorite way to use it - TweetDeck. Thanks Spoiled Mommy!
*Fabulous new cozy sweaters bought from Macy's for a steal.
*Exact style of brown wedge boots I've been searching for for the past 3 months - also purchased at a decent price during above shopping trip.
*The iPod Touch DH got me for Hanukkah - it's like having a mini computer with me at all times! I am having a blast downloading apps and walking around the house with my new little gadget.
*A free minute for blog posting! It feels like I've been consumed with so much lately that I have not had time to post at all. The MH walked daddy to the door and has not come back to snuggle with me in bed - I can hear her happily playing away downstairs, which is a rare occurrence (the playing alone part!). I have made it my goal for 2009 I (I figure calling it a goal is better than a resolution because a goal is something you work towards, whereas a resolution implies definite change. Hmm, maybe I should change that to resolution!) to blog at least a few times a week. It's part of my me time. It's part of my sanity. It's part of documenting my family's history.
*My little MH just finished her playing and crawled right into my bed to snuggle up on this cold and gray morning!
I don't think I've had a chance to say it yet, but Happy New Year! I'm looking forward to an amazing 2009!
