{love list}

Soooo....it has been awhile since I've done one of these suckers. Did you miss it?

Life just gets too crazy to make lists of the things you love sometimes.

But I'm making time today because I love a lot of things right now. Like...

1. Being a Mom.


Seriously...it gets better and better every day. During the first year I had major doubts about this motherhood gig. I didn't know what the heck I was doing. And God gave me two of them at once. I thought it was a sick joke.

But now.

Well...amazingly wonderful only touches the tip of a ginourmous iceberg of loveliness that is motherhood. I think it makes me glow more than I did when I was pregnant. It is THAT good.

And now for some completely shallow materialistic items because we all love that stuff too...

2. These chairs from Overstock...

The hubby and I really want these for our hopefully soon-to-be midcentury modern-ized dining room space.

3. This necklace from Jess LC...


If my hubby were to get me a Valentine's Day gift...this would definitely not upset me.

And honey...if you are reading this, I have a coupon code for 25% off, so do us both a favor and get me a gift WHILE saving money. That would make my frugal heart skip a beat.

4.This inspiring nursery space...



I LOVE this room. And you could totally translate it into an adult space.

5. This guy...



Thanks to good old Uncle Sam we were able to pay off all of our credit card debt today.

Yeah. Pretty darn sweet.

I don't talk about it a lot on here, but we've lived with a pretty tight budget the past year and that has meant charging items that we normally would have paid cash for in past years. Having my husband stay at home with our boys has been priceless, but not without plenty of stress at times. So when we did our taxes last week and realized how much we were getting back, we were both very grateful {and a tad giddy} to find out that not only would we be able to pay off our debt, but also buy a few fun things for the house {HELLOOO #2 on this list!}.

Turns out being broke does have its advantages, at least according to our government.

Happy Friday friends! Here's to a lovely weekend!

Love love love love love love love love love love that nursery. I've seen it floating it around several blogs this week and I'm completely in love. Such a great space.

Congrats on the debt payoff and having extra to buy something for the house!
