Little Things

There are always things to be grateful for, and it is so fun to wrap them up into a list...

A trip to the fabric store.
The fact that Asher has finally grasped that he cannot hightail it throughout the store and get himself lost.  He's realized that near Mama is best.  If only he'd not get sidetracked by toys throughout the store and take three times to come...
The stranger-grandma-sales associate at the fabric store today, who loved on my kids.  She even asked to hold Asher (of course he obliged), and she gave him a kiss on his head.  On the way out of the store, the kids were lagging behind me when I passed the stranger-grandma.  She asked, "where are the kids?"  I said, "aah, I'm just going to leave them here."  I didn't get a full reaction from her before they came toddling towards us.  She was thrilled to see them again, and I got a good laugh.
Speaking of funny moments, yesterday, while checking out at Walmart, Asher said to the male cross-dressing checker, "you look like a girl."  Let's just say the guy was extremely flattered, and Ash was onto something.
Our puppy, Jet, who is our watchdog (when he's not being retrieved by the neighbors driving up and down the "camel humps" as we call them.  He's been retrieved and returned about six times now.  Yes, we need to get him on a runner, and yay for cautious drivers).
That bowl of cookie dough ice cream.
My mom who is almost always available to take my call, answer my sewing questions and give decorating advice.  Yesterday, she took about six phone calls all in about a 3 hour span.  Thanks, Mom!
Being well on my way to being ready for this weekend's Vintage Street Faire in Camas.
My new business cards and postcards--they'll make my packages look much more professional.
My new vintage copper and turquoise necklace.  I think I may just shop vintage jewelry from now on!
One of my best friends who is only about one week away from opening up Nordstrom Rack, her first store, as General Manager.  I think a celebratory treat is in order!
Returning to a normal sleep schedule.  I love my mornings too much to sleep in. 
Blackberry picking with friends and the kiddos.
And finally, school beginning in under two weeks. 
Brooklynn loves her school time and I do too!

What are your Little Things this week?  Try and put them into a little list.
I'd love to get back to having you guys link in!  Let me know if you're interested!

The 'can you talk a sec' txt messages from my best friend that I get every other hour.

My daughter waking up, taking her pacifier out and saying 'mamma'. Then gently kicking me in the ribs to let me know "MILLLLLLK!!"

Cracking up with my husband because of a stupid joke between us while everyone else looked on dying to know what it was.

Stella D'oro Swiss Fudge cookies.

Nightly coffee with my husband while watching our shows together.

Kissing my daughter as she sleeps.

The feeling that Fall is about to come...

Lori- I love your list. Especially waking up to your sweet babe and the coffee with your hubby at night sounds like an awesome tradition. :)

Theophanie- Great list, too! Ahh...the sense of accomplishment. Just what I'm hoping for this weekend! The rain and crispness in the morning is lovely, too! I'm thirsting for both!

Thanks for your sweet lists, ladies! Loved reading them.

xx, C

I always love your little things. I want to go hunting for fat juicy blackberries now, too.

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
