This weekend and then some

This weekend is busy like the rest.

Friday I'm pretty sure is free but as I type that I fear that the hubby may call saying "hey girl we got plans".
I really just want to pull out my fall decor Friday night and decorate. Fingers crossed it stays that way.

Saturday- My baby girl Libby turns 8!!! I can't believe it. I remember when my sister-in-law went into labor with her. I mean I die every time I think about it. So we have her party on Saturday night. So Saturday is the clean and laundry marathon.

Sunday- Is football and shopping. Our dear friend is turning 21 and we are all going out in a limo!!! So I want to run to the store and get some fun "21" stuff for her. We go out on the 28th. Michael has the next day off and my mom will have Grayson. I'm excited for a night out without having to worry about driving home and getting up with a baby at the ass crack of dawn.

I had a light bulb moment the other day when thinking about Grayson. I'm trying really hard to stop saying things like. "I can't wait until he crawls, or walks, or talks, or waves goodbye." I neeeeeeed to stop wishing time away. Instead I'm trying to focus on the moment I'm in and enjoy the squishy baby I have in front of me at this moment.

I truly do love my life. I know I'm blessed. My husband and I have started a new routine at night by telling each other what made us feel blessed that day. I always use the word blessed because I remember a sermon from church a while back and the pastor said there is no such thing as luck it is purely about being blessed. So from that moment on I try to be conscious of using blessed not lucky.

The weather is supposed to be crap-tastic this weekend so I'm looking forward to bundling up in jeans and sweatshirts! Also crock pot meals!!!! And I'm in full party planning mode for my Michael's birthday. He wants a taco party so I'm just trying to figure out appetizers. Oh yeah and trying to stay in a $100.00 budget for food and drink. Bring on the coupons people because I'm bound and determined to get it done.
