One of those days ... hooray!

Yep, it's been one of those days that leave me with a feeling of contentment. Boy, did I need that! It's been one of those days when nothing really special happened, yet I feel truly blessed and somewhat relaxed. It's been one of those days that don't happen often enough, but now that it has I am practically glowing with gratitude.

Are you wondering what it's like to have one of those days?

Well, for me, it went a little something like this ...
  • Made my bed ... with my new creamy delicious bedding!
  • Cleaned my bathroom; I multi-tasked while blow drying my hair this morning.
  • Washed and dried my hair - it's so rare to manage both!
  • Felt cute (and somewhat put-together) when I walked out the door this morning ... on our way to a delightful playdate.
  • Visited with mommy friends while NHV played and fell in love with a doll house.
  • Served up a yummy lunch of chicken noodle soup and grilled havarti sandwiches (even though I seriously contemplated hitting a drive-thru because I can't stop thinking about french fries!)
  • Read lots and lots of stories - and cuddled like crazy - with my sweet, smart little girl
  • Took a seriously rockin' nap and still had an hour to myself before NHV woke up from her nap
  • Talked to my dear friend Heather in VA; it was so good to hear her voice and catch up on the latest at the school where we both taught
  • Had a silly and fun dance party with NHV; love having my iPod updated with kids' music and docked in her room!
  • Vacuumed upstairs and down, which was probably more work than I should've done.
  • Cooked a new recipe - uninterrupted while NHV played and pretended and made a huge mess
  • Savored delicious Spinach Chicken Parmesan and heard rave reviews from hubby
  • Waved good bye to NHV and her daddy was they set out for a walk to the park
  • Cleaned up the kitchen - it's spotless
  • Looked around, breathed a deep sigh of relief, and realized ...
I just had one of those days ... hooray!
