{Daily Letter - October 12, 2014}

Dear Husband, Thank you for knowing when I need a nap more than anything else. You always take care of me. Dear Nolan, Your adorable. The end. Dear Eyeballs, Thank you for not bursting out in tears when we had to order another pizza after slipping and spilling the first one in my passenger seat. Dear Pizza Hut London, Thank for giving me a free pizza after the above happened. This Mama is appreciative. Dear "Mom's Day Out," I could really use a laugh. Please be funny. 

Are we sure this isn't Monday? Sure does feel like it here. Happy Sunday night, folks!

{Thankful Friday}

Today I'm thankful for....
- Husbands who feed me dinner, so I can pump and feed the babe.
- Heating pads that make a clogged duct feel better. (Sorry TMI)
- Fleece Halloween jammers that keep my little warm. (And look super cute)
- Plans for Porter cousins to meet this weekend at the Pumpkin Patch
- Celery with almond butter
- Sleeping in
- Taking a hot bath
- The smell of wet leaves
- Apples, apples, apples. 
- Scones made by my Mama. 

Sorry I'm late posting! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Dear Hubster, You looked so hunky playing video games with my bro last night. I might have a crush on you. Come home from work so we can eat chili, and snuggle. Dear Nolie, You look super sweet in your Halloween jammers. I can't wait to see you in your costume. Dear Littlest Brother (but also the tallest), THANK YOU for visiting us. We love having you around. Please come back soon! Dear Patagonia, I took advantage of your 50% off sale. Ship my package ASAP!

It's a cold, rainy Monday. What's everyone making for dinner?

Dear David Jacob, I think our date of pizza, snuggling the offspring, while watching Once Upon a Time was the perfect way to end the day. I love you more than crisp fall nights, and Ale 8. Dear Sleepy Babe, Watching you sleep snuggled on my chest is one of the greatest things ever. Dear Mama, Remember that time three generations of women went to the Smokies, and snuck onto the Appalachain Trail, even though the park was "closed" because of the government shutdown? I loved creating a little civil disobedience with you and Gram. Dear Crookshanks Piper, Please stop walking directly under my feet. This is for your safety, as well as mine. 

It's the weekend! Yippee!

{Fresh BiB!}

A week ago, one of my favorite blogs (@todaysletters) hosted a give away for an adorable bib. Naturally, I thought I would enter because what Mama doesn't  need a good bib? Bonus points cause it's cute. (Why is it so hard to find cute bibs for boys?) 

Anyway, with a stroke of luck, I actually won! 
I was definitely surprised, and really, really excited to have won Nolan one of these suckers. :) 

Here are a few pictures of the adorable package I received via "The Pony Express."
Who wouldn't be excited when the package looks like this? I can totally appreciate it when a company takes the time to make their packaging look stellar. 
And just when I couldn't get anymore excited to open that little box, I discovered this..........
Can I say, YES! It even has a party horn?! You know you're on to something grand when there's a party horn in the package! 
This was the bib we received. Part of the fun is being surprised by which bib is in your box. Elephants and geometric prints? Perfect for Nolan. 

And last but certainly not least, here's my little man rocking his....
We are so thrilled with our bib! It looks adorable on Nolan, and it's so functional. Bonus points for collecting tons of drool, etc saving me from having to change his outfit a zillion times a day! 

If you're expecting, or know somebody who is expecting, this would be an excellent shower gift. :) You can find them at 

Happy Shopping!

Dear Hubby, 5 points for packing my lunch last night, minus 2 points for leaving the turkey on the counter. So excited for date night! Dear Cherub Cheeks, I'll trade you a huge bottle of warm milk, for you to stop crying every night at 9 when you get sleepy. Dear Maddie, I miss you every. single. day. I think about you each time I take Nolan for a walk. P.S. That pesky neighbor dog is still trying to follow us, and Molly from down the road says she misses you also. Hope you're burying pizza crusts all over heaven. Dear New Shower Curtain, The few extra inches you give us make us feel like we are showering in a palace. Dear Scrub Jacket Pockets, You enable me to carry a crapton of extra stuff around. It's definitely a love/hate deal. 

It's almost the weekend! Yippee!

Dear Mr Mosley, You have brought the 90's back with nightly episodes of Power Rangers. 3 points for reminding me of watching it with my brother as a kid. Dearest Nolan, You're growing so quickly. And I love watching you take in your new world. Ceiling fans really rock your socks off at the moment.  Dear October, I have been waiting all year for you! Welcome! Dear Freshly Mopped Floors, I adore the way you look and feel. Please stay clean. Dear Starbucks, Your oatmeal makes me happy, but your coffee is lackluster now that I'm grinding my own beans. Dear Kale Chips, I'm crushing're a great afternoon snack. Thanks for being on sale at Kroger this week. 

Happy October! So excited for fall!
