yesterday was such a good day! i did miss having hubs be able to go to lunch with us girls, but i am thankful for his job change last august (even if he is DTO now instead of just a few blocks from home)! the girls & i ran a couple errands (mailing uppercase living orders & some banking), went to the bookstore and got 3 (yep, three!) new books and Easter Basket books for the girls...and then lunch at our traditional birthday place: red robin! ah...good day! i did go into work last night, but even that was okay! they surprised me with a yummy ice cream cake...and then when i got home...another surprise: hubs and the lils CLEANED UP THE LIVING ROOM, KITCHEN, BATHROOM & GIRLS' BEDROOMS! i had asked hubs to just have the girls pick up their toys since we have our babysitter, kristyn (who my littles L-U-V! she is awesome!!), comes this afternoon...he went above and beyond!
a few days ago i had a couple minutes to myself and beelined it to one of my fave fabric stores. i am feeling the urge to sew (after tax season of course!). so i got some swatches to make fresh-springy pillows for our couch/living room and each of bedrooms! i will post a photo of my purchases another day! this leads me to a fabu site that i have fallen in complete unabashed love with: http://www.javisdavis.com/index.html i think i must have the "cottontail toile"...since it has 2 of my faves: toile & whimsy! the only thing that could totally make me nearly faint would be if it were damask! i found this site through blog-hopping and ventured on a new blog that i will stalking, err i mean stopping by, on a daily basis from now on! http://makeroomforstyle.blogspot.com/2009_04_01_archive.html
(and it doesn't hurt that she too does accounting AND is creative, too...it can happen!)
oh, the photo? some of my birthday loot!
oh, the title? yeah, sometimes i need to remind myself that contentment does not always lie in big, amazing moments but in the tiny, seemingly ordinary, real-life ones!
