I Love Thursday #48 – HB Jeanette!
This is our 48th post of things we love for the week. We post these loves each Thursday along with LeeAnna on her blog at Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find something to inspire you.
Sue’s Mom, Jeanette! Happy Happy Birthday to Jeanette. We both love you very much. Thank you for being my second mom for more than 40 years. We are blessed to have you in our lives, and both of you as our travel companions. Many blessings to you in the year ahead. Here is her and Tom on our most recent cruise to eastern Canada and Maine!
American Flag! I drive by this big, huge flag twice a day and it always makes me smile. In the early morning it is lit by a strong uplight, just as it should be. In the afternoon, it is lit by the sunshine or whatever else may be falling from the sky. Just seeing it lazily wave, stand at attention in a stiff breeze, or lay limp next to the pole always makes me thankful to live here. I took this picture at 70-ish mph with my phone – shame on me. I’ve been meaning to get a picture of it for weeks and weeks.
Little Black Dress! Seriously, isn’t this just THE cutest idea you’ve ever seen for your first little black dress?! A staple and necessary in every woman’s wardrobe, for sure. A co-worker of mine saw this in a catalogue and brought it in as soon as soon as she heard that we’re expecting a girl. OMG! You know how much we love our sweet boy, but he’s got nothing compared to all the cute clothes for girls. I hope we can kind of contain or control ourselves, but then I think why?!!
Backroads! When I was a kid, my dad always drove the backroads to my grandpa’s farm. We could have taken the freeway but he chose not to. Now I get it! How nice is it to just have the open road in front of you with no other cars around? I love just driving most of the time, and when you can really take a moment to enjoy your environment as you pass by is just fabulous. Do you often get to enjoy the scenery?
Dominic is REALLY into watching Sesame Street now. The first picture shared this week is how one chills and enjoys his buddy Elmo. The second picture depicts how one must stop whatever you are doing for a good commercial and chew on your sock while you watch. And the last picture shows how to enter your inflatable house via the window rather than using the door. Sue and I actually had to do this at her mom’s house when we were in college. I boosted Sue through the window, and she looked very similar to Dominic going in from my vantage point! The dogs greeted her delightedly by licking her face until she finally got through. HAHA! We love this baby.
It’s a big week for this baby. He turns one and has his first birthday party, plus he will be wishing GG happy birthday today as well. Life is pretty sweet for this boy, just as it should be. ~smile~ That’s it for this week! We hope your week is filled with many blessings. Happy Thursday!
