things i love thursday! (august 16, 2012)

My baby boy is four weeks old today! They grow up so fast, don’t they? Ha. Anyway. This week has been great. Here’s why…


  • Taking Dax on excursions.
  • Sleeping at night (even if it’s only in 2 hour increments).
  • Snuggles.
  • Sweet Emily coming over and making dinner for us, washing our dishes, falling victim to Dan “forcing” her to eat Marble Slab, and holding my baby WHILE giving me a massage. (Seriously. This lady is talented!)
  • A1 sauce.
  • Onion rings.
  • Having Hamlet sleep with us each night.
  • Bath time!
  • Discovering (and then watching the entire series of) “Up All Night”. YOU GUYS IT’S MY LIFE. SERIOUSLY. I AM WATCHING CHRISTINA APPLEGATE AND WILL ARNETT LIVE OUT MY LIFE kind of.
  • Sweet texts from friends.
  • Mail! Lots and lots of mail! INCLUDING international mail! Baby Dax is sporting some sweet London swag, y’all!
  • Tori visiting from out of town!
  • Being encouraged by my husband via Twitter.
  • Catching up with friends on the phone, even if it’s long overdue!
  • Having friends over for lunch.
  • Blowing through Mad Men.
  • Returning to bible study! And bringing Dax! (He was so good!)
  • Buffalo chicken and grilled cheese.
  • Meaningful conversations.
  • Meaningful conversations… with my cats.

What about you?

  1. That sounds like an amazing week. Thanks to your blog, whenever Thursdays roll around, I tend to think about the week and the things that made me smile too. This week: definitely going out to brunch with my mom. It was the first time we’ve been able to do that since my car accident. These days, even the simple act of being up and able to walk is something that makes me smile. Happy four weeks to Dax! 🙂
