Happy Friday everyone!! This was only a 4 day work week after being off on Monday but I am still glad for Friday. I need the weekend to get caught up. I have my company Holiday party tonight and my second Mom’s birthday party on Saturday night. It will be busy but I am still hoping to get a lot done. By now you know the drill, I share five things I am loving lately.
One. One of the things the million Lifetime movies I have watched recently is, that there are good people in the world. This cute 5 year old signs Christmas songs for her deaf parents during a school concert. Here is a link to the whole story. This is what Christmas is about, sharing the heartfelt stories that touch your heart.
Two. Every so often I will check out the up and coming lists on Bloglovin to find new blogs to read. Well guess what I saw when I checked Wednesday night….. yup that is me on that list at #17!!! I can’t believe it and I know the list changes all the time so it will probably be short lived but I never dreamed this little blog oh mine would make any list! I couldn’t be happier or more excited.
UPDATE: As I was preparing this post I checked to see where I was currently ranked, prepared to see I dropped off the face of the earth and saw this instead!!! Oh my FREAKING goodness!!! Pinch me I am dreaming. I never want to be a “huge” blogger because I always want to be able to correspond to everyone who comments by myself, and I want to always read other blogs and connect with others, but it is still really cool!!! More than anything I am so thankful to those who actually read my blog, comment on my blog, or lurk quietly in the background. You all make it worth it.
Three. After seeing these Overnight Apple Gingerbread Cinnamon roll from Baked by Rachel, I am going to be making these for Christmas morning. All of her recipes are amazing! If you want to make them too click here for the recipe.
Four. I have been stressed out all week. Mostly just because I really don’t like being behind in everything. From work emails, to blog emails, to blog reading it was a little much but Seamus always finds a way to make me smile. He really puts up with a lot, and all he asks for in return is a few extra belly rubs. Who can complain with that request. Not I said the fly! This just may be next years Christmas Card. He just looks so adorable. He has been doing this grunting thing at me lately which is kinda a new thing. I am trying to record it but, no luck yet.
Five. I put out a feeler last week to see about the interest for a blogger collaboration for my One Year Blogging Anniversary and doing a giveaway. Well I received interest from a few of you and I am pleased to announce the Jessica from Wonder What’s Next is going to be co-hosting with me since her Anniversary is so close to mine.
