The Great List {9.14.12}

For the last few weeks, my friend Jen at Leilaland has been writing a post every Friday called "The Great List", which highlights the positive points from her week (this is an ongoing meme, started by Betsy at Betsylife). I've enjoyed reading her lists and have wanted to get one of my own up too, so now I am!
It's so easy to get bogged down in all the difficult and not-so-rosey moments of being a SAHM. I could give you a list of 50 things that sucked/went wrong/never got accomplished this week... but let's face it, you don't want to read about them (and I'd reallllly rather pretend they didn't happen). It's nice to take a moment and reflect over the good things that happened, otherwise they could get overlooked altogether.

So, here are a few highlights from our week:

1. This past weekend was the Mountain View Art & Wine Festival. The Fest takes place once a year, every Sept., and is literally footsteps away from our house. It's a really cool all day event that has... you guessed it, art and wine. And beer. Yummy beer! There are kiddie rides, bands, and some of the most delicious garlic fries! The weather was gorgeous (of course!) and it was so nice to get out of the house as a family and walk around and just enjoy ourselves. And drink a beer. Outside. Did I mention that?! It was a wonderful weekend!

2. We got not one, but TWO Bears games on TV this week. Neither game was worth writing home about (one win/one loss), but the fact remains that we got to watch them play TWICE already!! That's definitely a luxury around here as we don't get many Bears games in NorCal. Cole was really excited to sport his Urlacher jersey (hand me down from big bro Brady), even though Dad would have preferred to see him in his Roethlisberger jersey instead. Maybe this Sunday.

3. Papa came to visit! Certainly THE highlight of the week. My Dad was in Sacramento on business, so he rented a car and came to visit us on Wed. night. Even though he was here for less than 24 hours, Brady was over the moon to see him and we were happy to have him here. I was glad that he got to see Cole before he got too big, and hope that he and my Mom can come back and visit sometime in November as well.

Now that the weekend is upon us and we're all ready to kick back and relax, I hope you too can find a moment to celebrate the great things that happened to you this week!


  1. Yay so glad you joined in! I love knowing that when I look back I will be reminded of all the great things that happened in our week.

    1. Thanks for the idea! I need to take more time to find the joy in our days. Have a great weekend!
