Thank you!!!

Yesterday was my was a wonderful day where I was showered with love :) Not only was my little man glued to my side and loving nobody but mommy....but so many other wonderful things happened as well. It was a really great day!

My day started with my mother in-law and her best friend, driving 2 hours to come and reorganize my kitchen. Months ago they offered up to me their fabulous skills in organizing and cleaning. I could pick any space in my house and they would come and make it a clean, organized and usable space. S and I went back and forth between the basement and the nursery. Then one day I opened one of my kitchen cabinets and a box of pancake mix fell on my head. I looked at my crowded and disorganized cabinets and pantry and knew that this was the room that needed attention. Very soon we will have lots of baby stuff filling the cabinets once again and we needed more space.

They worked for 4 hours and did a marvelous job. I now have a space for everything and they got rid of so many things that we didn't use. My kitchen is like a breath of fresh air and I am so thankful to them for coming and doing something that I no longer have the energy to do. It was a wonderful gift!

I wish I had a before picture of this looks amazing now!

I spent the afternoon with my feet up while Z played with our Mother's Helper and then the girls came over at 7:30!!! They brought the party to me and it was wonderful :) Virgin Bellini's, red wine (for them), pumpkin beer (again for them) and apple cider were the beverages of choice. For food they had a gorgeous cheese platter, a yummy focaccia bread with sun dried tomoatoes, mini quiche, spanikopita, a delicious taco dip and for dessert double fudge brownies, rice crispy treats with craisins and pumpkin seeds and a fabulous strawberry cake (which I had for breakfast too). It was all so delicious and I am so glad that I skipped dinner so that I could eat all night :)

The evening was very casual and I sported my yoga pants, a comfy top and my slippers! We chatted about many things, laughed and scared my youngest sister away from ever having children :) It couldn't have been a more perfect night! Thank you so much girls for coming over with food and drink and hanging out with me. And to those who couldn't be there.....we missed you but you were there in spirit.

On another note, today is the 11th anniversary of my first date with S! Can you believe it....11 years!?!?! Time has flown by and I can't remember a time without him in my life. Thanks for 11 great years honey :)

Those crispy treats with craisins and pumpkin seeds sound YUM-O!

p.s. please don't tell Rachel Ray I said that...I don't want her to sue me. ;)

Aw! That sounded like a fantastic evening! I'm pleased that you enjoyed yourself and that you now have a spick and span pantry! Now, just sit back and wait for that baby to put in an appearance!
Big Hugs!

that sounds like a fantastic day! I wish someone would come re-organize my pantry! I try and try, but now both of m kids like to play in there! I'm glad you had a great day!

Mom said...

Thanks for scaring your youngest sister. Looks like the only grandchildren we will have from K and M will be four-legged and hairy.

So glad it was a fun time and that your kitchen is done. Do you think E and J will come to my house and do the same?

Love ya!
