I’m literally dancing around the house from a spontaneous onset of excitment about life in general. Maybe it’s because of all the sweet things you all have been saying to me in my last post about the blogroll and what could be improved (did the post come off as a plea for praise? It was not intended to be so.)
Buy you’re all so lovely and sweet, and your kind words combined with That Husband coming home from his trip to Houston a day early have me beaming from ear to ear.
Here are a few other things that have me prancing:
I gave That Husband his Valentines day present yesterday. Can you guess what it was? It involved looking like this for a little while.
This is what color it was in December:
And this is what it looks like today: (Yes I’m being kind of shy in the photo because I have no makeup on)
I gave my husband blond hair for V-day. He likes it, I like it. And I promise you will see better photos of me wearing my new hair soon.
Then I went to the leasing office to pick up a package and saw this on the ceiling. They pained the dome to look like a birdcage. It made me so happy I had to take a picture and show you.
One of the packages was from That Mom. Among other things she sent me the bookends That Sister gave me for Christmas a few years ago. I was momentarily saddened by the carelessness of the USPS system.
Luckily That Mom taught me the magic of Gorilla Glue a few years ago.
Not quite good as new, but I’m just so happy to have my pretty bookends with me once again.
The other package was something I had been waiting and waiting so impatiently for.
My etsy alchemy request for a custom wall vinyl from seller Wall Creations and More! I’m planning on moving the bridge shot to the office and working on making the bedroom a space full of pictures of us, using some of the spicy and sweet engagement and wedding photos we have. I’m working on making the bedroom as calming, relaxing, and intimate as possible.
That Husband was really skeptical about using one of these wall vinyls. He thought it would look cheesy, but I don’t think it looks cheesy. I think it looks lovely and inspiring. I love the line “Accomplish thou my manhood”, it reminds me that I want to keep working every day to make our marriage better.
Tonight, if That Husband gets home early enough, we are headed to a temple session and afterward to get some dessert with some friends we haven’t seen since last summer. If works keeps TH late we are going to invite them over to our house for some homemade ice cream.
I’m just so thrilled to be alive right now, I don’t know what it is but I’m grinning from ear-to-ear and shaking a little bit from excitement about the greatness of life.
I hope you get the chance to feel the same way this weekend!
