3 Things 4/11/11

Well hello there my dear and loyal friends! How was your weekend wherever you are? Ours was great! Beautiful weather, good friends and lots of outdoor time. Can you ask for more??

Three grateful things-

1- signs of spring!!!


Hello, lilacs!


our lovely spring flowers making their appearance


Yes, that says 80 degrees. Fahrenheit. In April. In Illinois.


2- soccer season begins

It truly doesn’t feel like spring in our home until soccer season starts for our oldest. She has been playing since first grade and loves it so much. We are a soccer family: my husband and ex-husband are the coaches (yes, we are a regular Modern Family) and now my Ellie is starting soccer for pee wee’s on Tuesday. This year, however, Annie will be playing on two teams, regular and traveling so should be quite the hustle and bustle to get to and from games and practices especially with my husband’s crazy schedule. But feel like we can make it work since she likes it so much. That and I read “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother” and I really feel like the least I can do is take her to a couple of practices a week. What a book.

3- My 100th post!!!

As the lead-in states, this post you are reading is indeed my 100th post to date! It almost passed me by but as I logged in to my “dashboard” of my blog, there it was- 100 posts. Wow. Thank you so much to my great readers, I wish I had a nickname for you like some bloggers do, I will keep thinking of that one. But you are all wonderful in my eyes and I can’t thank you all enough for your love, support, and tolerance of my posts.

In honor of this occasion, I thought it would be fun to list my top 5 favorite posts (since I love lists).
