The Little Things Thursdays: #17

Welcome to The Little Things Thursday!! 

If you are new to our link-up, we like to take a minute to look back on the little things that brightened our week. So often we get busy and forget all of the things that we enjoy as we go through our daily lives. This is an opportunity to stop, remember, and enjoy those things! Nothing is too fact, the smaller the better! That's the whole point! If you have a blog, link-up below. If you don't blog, I'd love for you to participate by leaving a comment. Ready?

1. Google Calendar
Okay, I know I'm late to the party, but Sean set up a shared calendar for us today. It's so cool! We can both add things to it and both see if from our computers or phones. Seeing as how I still write down everything in a traditional calendar, it's a big leap for me to have an electronic version. I think I'm going to like it!

2. A Little Tomboy
It's not just socks that catch this little girl's fancy! She loves hats almost as much. Even better if she can wear hers backwards with Daddy. Ellie might just turn out to be a tomboy!

3. Disney on Ice
We went to Disney on Ice last night! It was totally fun! I won't say much more at this point, because I'm going to post pictures of it later. But let's just say, I'd like to go again next year!

4. Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cupcakes
A friend asked me to create something special for her best friend's 50th birthday. This is what she decided on, and I think they came out pretty well! It was definitely a decadent dessert: Double Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Icing, topped with a fresh hand-dipped Chocolate Strawberry drizzled with White Chocolate. These are the most elegant cupcakes that I make. Yummy!

5. Next Week's Diet
I'm actually getting pretty excited about the four week challenge that is starting next week! We already have 21 players signed up and with a pot worth $525. Fun! Okay, not fun that I will most likely spend the first three days with a massive headache as I cut out sugar, but overall, I think it's going to be a lot more fun than losing weight by myself. If you haven't joined the game yet, you really should!

Now it's your turn! What Little Things brightened up your week? Link up your post below (or leave a comment if you aren't a blogger) and make sure you come back next week to play again!

  1. That picture doesn't look to bad, what did you end up using for pictures, your phone? And you'll have to provide a future update on the Google calendar, I use a paper planner and am terrified to switch to an electronic one. Curious how you end up liking it.

    1. I used my phone. I couldn't believe that I brought my camera and not the memory card. Argh!! But at least that photo turned out well.

      I don't know if I'll ever be able to give up my paper calendar, but the idea of Sean and I both knowing each other's schedules is intriguing! I'll let you know what I think in a few weeks!

  2. I don't know what Mike and I would do w/o our shared Google calendar on our phones and laptop! I was stuck on paper too but WOW! Wish I'd found this sooner! You will love it. -Andrea from Blue Ridge

    1. So far, so good! Sean put a calendar on my phone that pulls in our Google calendar, plus I get an email just before anything that's scheduled! So awesome!


We would love to hear what you think! Please know that all comments are on a slight delay as we approve them on our end. Thanks for commenting!
