Six on Saturday

1. John and I went on a date last night. This week was one where we were each a bit distracted by all we had going on and we weren't connecting. John recognized that and asked me one morning if I'd like to go out with him on Friday night. Sweet, huh? We went to dinner at a mexican place we've been wanting to try and it was amazing (local friends: you must order the tequila-lime chicken!) and then we knocked around a few stores trying to finish up some Christmas shopping. It was a nice, unhurried evening and we both need that time together more than we realized. I'm so thankful for my husband--he is a good man.

2. A few days ago, my friend gave me a stove-top potpourri kit that she'd put together and OH MY GOSH! My house smells amazing! People, you've got to make this. I promise you, you will love this and won't believe how heavenly your house will smell. Here are some cute ways you could package it and give it as a gift!

3. Thank you for all of your skinny jeans feedback. I bought a pair of Rockstar skinny jeans at Old Navy and I like them. I think I could probably find a more flattering fit, but I was smitten with the $18 price tag. I always feel guilty spending money on myself in December; it's a month that we seem to bleed money. But jeans under $20? I can go for that.
One of my commenters sent me this Pinterest link showing how to tuck non-skinny jeans into boots. It is brilliant! I tried it the very day she sent me the link and it worked GREAT. Nice to have an option for the jeans I already have. Thank you, Ginger!!!

4. I got to spend some time with one of my favorite friends yesterday. I met this particular friend last year after Will briefly dated her daughter. Isn't it amazing how God uses different ways to bring people into our lives? I told Will this week: Thank you for dating Maddi so I could meet and become friends with her mom! The blessing of that short-lived dating relationship was all MINE! 

5. I'm super sore this morning after trying a Pilates class yesterday with my friend. I haven't worked out in ages and I overestimated my fitness level when I chose a set of "light" weights to use during the class. My arms and shoulders might never be the same. It even hurts to type. I liked Pilates though! 

6. Thursday is the last day of school before Christmas break begins! I am giddy and my kids are sooooooooo ready. My older two have finals next week and I know they will be relieved once their exams are behind them. Bring on the family togetherness!!!!

Well, it's another December Saturday for us--full of fun and function. Hope yours is MERRY!

I'm going out for Mexican tonight--yay!

Potpourri sounds great, and I have all the ingredients already. Totally trying later.

Thanks for tip on folding jeans into boots.

I've been doing Zumba, and we use weights for part of the time. I can relate to what you said!
