morning, coffee, reflections

as i woke this morning with my husband at 1am, as he was coughing and hacking, ... after his wonderful skiing trip has caught a cold, i knew i would meet exhaustion as my alarm went off.  i can't imagine how he felt at 4 am this morning as his went off.  so, as i sit, swimming in my coffee pot, i can't help but thank God for him, our life together, and our jobs that we both are sleepily arriving at this morning. we both worked a majority of the weekend, also lending itself to a grumpy monday morning, however, again, one cannot help but be thankful & grateful.

this weekend i....

• we were treated to an amazing lasagna dinner Friday night.  my wonderful sis-in-law, Leah, fixed an amazing italian meal for us.  it completely hit the spot.  we then had a relaxing evening, sitting and visiting, and laughing hysterically at levi.  it was a good evening.

• saturday came early, as we both got up, had breakfast together, then headed off to work.  my day consisted of a very successful day at our homeshow.  we wrapped up the evening cuddling in bed and drifting off to sleep around 8:30-9pm... yep.  we're old... and work hard!

• sunday came early as well, as we both headed to work again.  our day was a bit shorter yesterday.  i got home, and then we somehow found ourselves at costco buying a new couch! we are so blessed! again, we are very simple people. we really don't have a lot of "things", but we definitely had been wanting a new couch downstairs in our "tv room"... we had been using Rob's old futon, and well, it is not very conducive when you have company over.  so now, we have a huge sectional, which i absolutely love!!! it feels almost like a football...super soft leather.  we wrapped up the evening cuddling on the couch, watching a bit of the oscars...have i mentioned i am not a fan of award shows?! i'm sooo reminded of this around this time of the year!

As I start my Monday, I am hopeful and expectant of a great week!

Have a great one everyone! xoxo
