Today has been absolutely wonderful so far.
My day started with breakfast in bed. :O) It’s our sixth anniversary today, and Stephen made me chocolate chip waffles topped with a chocolate peanut butter sauce. It’s really not as fattening as it sounds, but even so, it was still a treat. I so love that man! He loves to make me breakfast in bed, and I’ll gladly enjoy it there when he does it!
After a lazy morning, we dropped S off at Grandma’s house for the day while we went and explored a new-to-us thrift store. I found a pretty blouse for myself, got Stephen a few pair of work jeans, and I think I completely outfitted S in the next size jeans for when he outgrows the ones he’s in now. All of those clothes combined cost me a whopping $5 – I think that was pretty good, lol! We also found an ice cream freezer for only $2 – which was great because Stephen’s dad had been looking for another one and this was exactly what he had been wanting.
We headed up to town to do some more errands. It’s tax-free weekend in NC, so things were a bit crazy, but we got what we needed. It was also fun to dream about some of the laptops that we looked at. We won’t be buying one any time soon, but it was nice to dream anyways. I also had some things printed up for a new item I’ll be adding to the notebook store soon, so stay tuned for a post about that in the near future.
Now we’re home and enjoying the peace and quiet before we go get S from Grandma’s house. I’ve had some fabric sitting around for a new dress, so I think I just might start it. It’s supposed to be a 2 hour pattern, so maybe I can get it done for church tomorrow. . .
It probably helps to actually hit the “publish” button, huh? Oiy. I got so involved with sewing the new dress that I completely forgot. It did get finished though, and seems like it’s going to be rather comfortable. I’m already trying to think through my stash to see if I have a big enough piece for another dress, but I’m not sure about that yet.
We went to Stephen’s parents’ house to go get S, and ended up staying for dinner. I never realized how much I enjoy spending time with them until we moved away. Now it’s a treat to be able to go over there.
My darling husband did the dishes when we came home too (we ran out the door in somewhat of a rush earlier and they didn’t get done. Oops. I try to always have them done, but it doesn’t always happen yet).
Either way, it was a wonderful day. It was so nice to just be able to spend time with Stephen – even though we were just running errands for part of the day. We really didn’t do anything big or out of the ordinary, but it was a special day regardless. I am so thankful God brought us together!
