Saturday Love

Today has been wonderful.

Here are some of the things I've loved...

I hosted Bunco last night so I woke up to a very clean house. Love that!

I love this plate and all the fun things I get to use it for. Thank you again, Jill!

I love sleeping in.

I love that John had coffee ready when I woke up. And I love that he made me breakfast--fried eggs and toast--my Saturday favorite.

I love that my girls played dolls in their room almost all day. They were chummy from the moment they awoke until the time they went to bed. It's not rare, but it definitely makes my heart smile. I also love that Sarah is 11.5 and still enjoys playing with dolls. And her little sister.

I love football on Saturday afternoons. Not many more days of football left this year so I'm making the most of it.

I love naps on the couch.

I love popcorn. That I don't have to share.

I loved John being home with me/us all day. Loved joking around with him and sharing smiles over inside jokes. Also love that he's sitting on the couch with me right now.

I love this girl and the fact that she wanted to wear this jersey today to make my best friend smile. (She did!)

I loved that the Colts won too! Woohoo!

Loved the weather that was sunny and warm (for January!)

I could go on and on but I'm tired from all the NOTHING that I loved doing today.

John and I are unplugging again tomorrow (Sunday) and I'm also heading to Denver to spend time with one of my dearest friends who's in town visiting some family. See y'all on Monday. Or Tuesday. Or whenever the urge to blog strikes again.

Glad you had a good day.

We had to go up to Denver to take Chels to the airport today. Sure do miss her already. Then we took 83 back down to Springs. Beautiful drive, can't wait to drive it this summer.

I love eggs on toast. And they have to be ON the toast. Crazy I know.

What a wonderful day! I'm so glad you got to rest and enjoy it. Have a wonderful Sunday!

Sounds like a truly wonderful day! Don't you love it when the kids play happily all day? Such a blessing.
Have a great, unplugged, day!

Sounds like Saturday found you in a good place. Hope Sunday's just as full of "loves."

This made me smile.
I love knowing Jessica's not the only almost-twelve-year-old who still plays with dolls.

I turned the tables and answered a couple of YOUR questions on my blog today! :)

My sisters and I played dolls till we were quite old! I really love it when little girls get to have a childhood! I hope my 3 year old, Ava Grace loves playing dolls and playing creatively (house and school) for a long time! Nothing better than having a childhood! :)

Okay, you'll relate to my drama: I just fried an egg for lunch today, and dangitall if i didn't break the yoke. Ruined. 'Course I ate it b/c I didn't want to waste, but still...

I didn't know people still used words like "chummy". ;)

Glad you had a wonderful Saturday, Mer. Saturday has really become more of my sabbath than Sunday. Sunday can be busy.

I have a plate like that and you've inspired me to pull it back out. Quite impressed with your dice artwork! ;)

My momma-heart smiles when I hear my kids playing upstairs, too.
