I am blessed....

For the past couple of days I have had that old song in my head ... You know " I am blessed, I blessed. Everyday that I live I am blessed. When I wake up in the morning til I lay my head to rest. I am blessed. I am blessed". God is so good to me. I have had wonderful past couple of days. Thursday, the boys went to spend some time with their Nanny Mary. I had some much needed down time. I spent most of the day shopping(Ann Taylor Loft ROCKED a sale), running errands(felt old when I saw Andrew P working the bank), had lunch with an awesome friend :)! This gave me time to reflect on truly thankful I am for the life that I have. All the blessings I see and especially all the ones I can't see. You know, the blessings where God is working in my favor and I don't even realize it! THAT IS AMAZING!

Thursday night I cooked dinner for my family and then Tommy had meeting. I hung out with Keri on the power box. ha! We just sat out there and talked and watched the kids play. They were so funny arguing over Bleeze Mustang. My advice, if you live in a neighborhood, don't buy your kid a battery operated vehicle. ugghhh! It was a pretty good night. We were all in bed sleeping at 10:30. That is AMAZING! LOL!

Yesterday was a great day too. I worked around at home yesterday morning. GOT MY MICHAEL BUBLE TICKET! WE ARE GOING TO HAVE SO MUCH FUN!! HE IS SO DREAMY!!! I went outside with the boys and played in the afternoon. They were so funny. They had went to spend the day with Nanny Mary on Thursday and she bought them a blow up pool. Nothing would do them but to bring the stinkin thing home. We could not get the air out so we crammed it into the back of the van. It was Hilarius! So despite they have in ground pool they could play in at the end of the street the opted to get in the whale pool. LOL! It is cute. It shoots water out the top. Bleeze likes it because he says he "swims" in it! Around and around he goes and then comes up gagging! LOL! Eli was calling him Michael Phelps. LOL!!!!!!!

Last night was GREAT! We went downtown with my parents. Greenville is so beautiful. Yet another reason I am blessed. Greenville voted 4th best place to live in the nation!! GO GREENVILLE! We had dinner at Smoke on the Water. YUMO!!!! OMG! That place is amazing. The boys behavior was awesome. Even the waitress commented on how well-mannered they were. She said, Kids normally are throwing bread and screaming. I busted out laughing and said, "thank you, we are having a rare night" LOL!!!!! We walked the entire downtown. Went to some of the shops but the highlight was Mast General store candy section. We always let the boys get some! It was so fun! We took our time and just relaxed. It was great!! Came home, the boys crashed early so Tommy and I had the evening to ourselves. NICE! I attached a picture. It is not that great. Tommy looks half drunk (he's not) LOL! Never the less, it is a reminder of our good night.

That is my past few days. I am headed out to the grocery store. We have our neighborhood annual pool party tonight. There is always some type of drama that occurs. Can't wait to see how it goes. LOL! I have to stay the entire time to help Tommy because he is the HOA president. UGGHH! We are going to have yummy food, DJ with dancing, trackless train, and jumpy rides. It should be awesome! So for now, I hope everyone has an amazing weekend! In the words of my dear friend Elle, "count your blessings!"
