Spoiled Sweet?

This week has been...something. I don't know what's gotten into everyone around me, but EVERYONE is surprising me with sweet gifts and gestures. It's been one blessed week for this Mama.

It started with my husband deciding that he was going to get rid of his Cadillac and (finally) buy me a mini-van. I've been asking for a mini-van since before Henry was even born. I'm not a sporty person (obviously) so I see no need to trade the style of an SUV for the size and room of a mini-van. If you know me, you know I pack around pretty much everything and my car just hasn't been cutting it for awhile. I need more room, plus this allows us as a family to travel in a little more comfort. Hello nap-time on the backseat!

I hate that it's silver, but I LOVE everything else about it. It has the flip-down dvd player in the back and a SIX disc CD changer. I'm going to be in heaven. (And yes, I still prefer to listen to CDs.)

Then my best-friend surprised me by ordering one of my custom headbands. On top of supporting my crafty adventures, she also surprised me in telling me that she's going to be in town this weekend. I CAN'T WAIT! Mama could really use some girl time.

Then last night I invited my mother-in-law to dinner and she surprised me with this new mug. I LOVE IT! My obsession with owls makes me SO easy to shop for, but to be surprised, mid-week, for no reason with this little gem really made my night. It's even my current favorite color: teal. I enjoyed my morning tea in it first thing this morning.

As if my night wasn't already night, then my husband came home and surprised me with this:

This cute bird house is made from wood from the Eldean bridge which had to have a few renovations done back in 2006. This is Jeremy and I's 'spot'. He took me down below the bridge by the river to propose to me and we took wedding photos there on the cold December morning that we were married, and when we left the hospital with Henry, we drove through the bridge on our way home. He is seriously the sweetest, most sentimental person I know. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband!

I hope you all had a great, short week! I'm looking forward to the weekend. I have to work tonight and tomorrow, but Sunday I'm off for our family reunion!

And because I'm feeling all mushy, here's a few of our wedding photos from the bridge!

    1. I'm glad to hear that someone else loves their van! Every person I talk to says they will NEVER be that mom that drives a van. I couldn't wait! Haha!

  2. What an awesome husband you have! High five to him for spoiling you! :)

    1. He really is great. Thanks Jessica!

  3. You deserve it! What a beautiful post!!!

  4. You deserve everything wonderful and more! :) Happy for you!

  5. I do not need a new car at all as mine is pretty much brand new but I think a van or anything bigger would be heavenly! It seems the older Connor gets the more crap I have to drive around. More space would be needed.

    Enjoy your reunion on Sunday!

  6. Woohoo for an awesome week of being spoiled! You deserve it momma!

  7. Awwww! You so deserve it! And I absolutely love that you have a birdhouse that has a very sentimental meaning behind it. What an amazing surprise gift!


You don't know just how lovely you are...thank you.
