Thankfulness and Sweet Pinkness!

So we're back at Monday and the vicious cycle continues. I'm truly, truly trying to find the joys of Monday. I'm thankful that I have another Monday to wake up to, I'm glad I have a job to go to, thankful to have a school to go to this Monday evening to further my education in a career that will allow me to be successful, and for food in my stomach, money in the bank (may not be much, but nonetheless, it's money, haha), a roof over my head, but most of all, thankful that God's mercies are new every morning, and it's a new week to get things right. And we may not always get things right, but he loves us anyway. Thank goodness for that! What are you thankful for this Monday? :)

As I said, I went to a baby shower this weekend for my sweet friend Carina, and just wanted to share a few pictures :)

Yummy food!!!

Now, how precious is that cake???

Tis I with the glowing pregnant one :)

About ready to pop!!

Opening gifts! She got soo much neat stuff!

It was such a sweet time and so glad I was able to share in the day with her. I know her little girl is going to be a beauty!

And how about that game!!

I was actually rooting for the Cardinals. I always love to go for the underdogs. But it was a very good game and oh so close! Both teams played such a GREAT game. And I was soooo sad to have missed Jennifer Hudson sing :( Heard she did an amazing job. Went over to my brother and sister-in-law's house. They had a bunch of people over. So it was a good time with great food and time with family and friends.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Happy Monday and try to find the joy in today :o)

I think your new design is SUPER cute...and I can't remember if I've told you that already.

I get to go to a baby shower this weekend...I hope the cake is as cute as that one!

I'm having a hard time on this Monday...I don't think I'm a fan. :)

That baby shower looks like so much fun...and I'm wishin' I had myself a piece of that cake right 'bout now! I didn't watch too much of the game, but what I caught was great...and I was cheerin' for the Cardinals as well. Jennifer H. was fantastic...maybe there is a video of it on you tube for you to see?? happy monday to you, too!

I'm WAY behind on my blog reading with my power out.. but I came by to check on you. I LOVE your post about your grandparents - it's so sweet, and so sad. I'll be praying for them.

Your new blog design is absolutely adorable!!!

I love how your always so positive!! BTW, I was rooting for the Cardinals too!

Heather said...

I was pulling for the Cardinals too! We like Kurt Warner and how he always displays His love for Christ. I was really bummed they didn't win, especially after the stunt that Harrison pulled for the Steelers. I love that cake at the shower!

Jennifer did an amazing job and I was so proud for her. Hey, that baby cake was too cute. I'm a sucker for cute cakes. Oh, and today I said a special prayer for you to find that special one God has waiting. You are just too cute. Wish we lived closer.
