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 small...in 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. Four Peas in a Pod
One of my quad mom friends posted a few weeks ago that one of those Groupon-type websites had a deal on peapod necklaces. What?! I really like stuff like that, so Sean said that I could pay the $12 to get one. It just came in mail, and I love it! Now people can look at it and be like, "Hey! You have four kids!"...you know, just in case they don't notice the toddler quadruplets racing around underfoot.
2. Shoes, shoes, shoes!
My girls love shoes. And jewelry. And purses. We are putting together a dress up trunk for them for Christmas, but I just couldn't hold back the play shoes any longer. I think I paid a whopping $0.50 per pair, but you would think I just presented the Steve Maddens. It's hilarious to watch them shuffle around the house in their plastic heels.
3. Take Sean Out to the Ballgame
I'm thrilled for Sean! His friend asked if he could take him to St. Louis to see the Cardinal's in playoffs. Of course! He's been trying to be all laid back about it, but I know he was over-the-moon excited! Even better? The Cards won! Big thanks to Charles for taking him to see his favorite team live!
This is kind of fun! One of the perks of being is blogger is that sometimes brands send you stuff just because they feel like it. I can get behind that! This week, I got a box in the mail with an assortment of new makeup brushes from Real Techniques. I haven't actually used them yet, but they appear to be really good quality. And my brushes are old, so this comes at the perfect time! Although, goodness! Do people actually use eight different brushes to put on their makeup in the morning?!
5. Rustic Dinner
Our dinner last Sunday was so fun! I remember my mom setting out a meal like this a couple times while we were growing up. Everyone gets what they want, and all food groups are represented. It was a hit at our house, and I'm sure we will do it again!
6. CSA: Week 18
Week 18: This is it! The last bag of the CSA season. *sniff* I'll miss it. This week we had: 2 bread bowls, 8oz of homemade egg noodles, 2 lbs of flour, 1 jar of peach pie filling, 1 lb of stew meat, 4 sweet potatoes, 1 radish (I think), 1 parsnip (I think), 1 loaf of zucchini bread, 1 container of tomatoes, 2 onions, 1 head of butter lettuce...and a bonus: 1 pumpkin!
