Plus and Minus

I can't believe...
I waited almost a year to get a haircut!
But I'm thankful...
that Jackie got me a super deal with her stylist & I have short hair again (photo by EJ).
 

I can't believe...
I made red scrambled eggs for the kids' Valentine's dinner...end result = gross!
But I'm thankful...
that we can still get a heart-shaped pizza for our Valentine's dinner tonight when the whole family is home!
 
I can't believe... 
that I am a grown woman reading Star Wars themed books (but they have to be pre-read/approved by someone, right?)
But I'm thankful...
that Jack and I get to work together creating origami Yodas like this one.


As if! Our origami Yodas resembled wadded balls of (white) paper. This is spectacular though!

I can't believe...
how incredibly crazy this week has been.
But I'm incredibly thankful...
for Moms who upended their life to spend 24 hours taking care of yours, so you can be with your extended family and husband.

I can't believe...
how much I love my new glasses!  Driving at night is actually not painful now and I can see the big screen clearly at the movies...yay!
I'm especially thankful...
for the fun styles available (I went nerd, Jack went cool).
 
I can't believe...
that I didn't try cherry M&Ms until this week. Yum! They remind my of the chocolate-covered cherries my Grandma loved (but without all the messy, runny, gooey center).
And I'm thankful...
for friends who have kept me stocked in my favorite cherry candies this week...M&Ms, Mike & Ikes, gumdrop hearts...yum!  Oh, and Sandy's cherry chocolate chip cookies were pretty incredible too!

Love the new 'do and glasses. Nerd is in, yo.

It was a whole year?! Wow!
Love the glasses! I love nerd glasses. Aidan just got some new nerd ones last week.

Aren't cherry m&ms divine? I hope they are seasonal, otherwise my clothes will cease to fit.

I can't believe it was a whole year either but I LOVE your hair (not biased at all!) and I am thankful for an awesome friend who will listen and console to random babbling through any social media or heaven forbid the actual phone!! :)

oh and I'm with Karri on the m&m's...they better be seasonal or I'm in trouble too...love those!
