I'm in Love!

Just a quick post today! We have a very busy Valentine's weekend around here, but I couldn't not blog, right? So I thought I'd just share a few things I'm loving right now since we're inching ever closer to love day. :)

1. I am absolutely loving the obviously longer days we've been having. When it's 5:00pm and the sun is still out, uh! Love. It. We are getting ever closer to warmer days, my friends. Which brings me to love number two:

2. The weather forecast! Mid-sixties by the end of the week? Yes, please! Eric and I are actually considering buying our new double stroller early so we can sneak in a walk while the getting is good. And I LOVE the fact that we're even discussing the possibility of getting out for a walk. Woohoo!

3. Evelyn is getting even more artistic, and I adore getting coloring pages like these from her Sunday School class. When you're a stay at home mom, you don't get many little projects to hang on the refrigerator unless you facilitate them yourself, so it's super fun to see something they do when mommy and daddy aren't around.

4. We've paid off two more debts! Do the happy dance with me!! Woot, woot...woot, woot. Gracie is now PAID FOR. Haha. Debt payments had to ease up just a teeny bit when the hospital bills came rolling in. We didn't want to add to our already big pile of debt, so we paid those bills off hardcore. And just last night we completely wiped out our next debt in line. Now it's time to attack my next student loan. I love, love, love it!

5. I was so incredibly happy to see the "Is Renting the New Buying" segment on the Today show this morning. Yes! Thank you! Wake up world...if I hear one more person say "renting is throwing your money away" I might throw up. In the end, it's all about what you can really afford, ya know? I am in love with the fact that the mentality is shifting.

6. Gracie is really enjoying tummy time, and it makes my heart sing. I've been waiting since the day we brought Grace home from the hospital for the day that I would be able to lay her on the floor so that she and Evie could really play and interact. That day is today. :)

7. I am so incredibly beyond thankful for our family's health. Thank you, Lord. So yeah, I guess you could say I love that, too. Haha.

8. I looove the way Evelyn calls for her mommy when she wakes up in the morning. "Mama! Mama!" Cupid takes his arrow and shoots me straight through the heart every single time.

9. I am really in love with my husband, and it's okay if you think that's cheesy for me to say online, but it's true. I love Eric Joseph Robert! Many people know him as a politically-minded jokester, but I get to see his real self every single day. *Sigh* What a great dad. What a great husband. Love, love, love.

10. Tonight my eldest daughter and my man are going out for their first daddy-daughter date. I cannot wait to put a dress on Evelyn and curl her little piggy tails. I cannot wait for the time that she is going to get with her daddy. And Eric, you better take pictures!

So you see, there is lots to love. I could go on and on and on, but I won't. I have many things to do today, and that includes lovin' on my babies! Have a great weekend...we'll share pictures and fun stuff from our next two days on Monday!
