Things I loved about today...

-walking to Starbucks in the morning with my sister and mother-in-law, my two nephews and one foster niece (beautiful day for a chilly fall walk!)

-taking my two puppies to play in the school field with my husband, we ran in all the leaves...wish I had my camera!!

-going to a rich ladies house to buy her son's old clothes (I found her on kijiji, and yes I have started to buy up some older boy clothes!!) I scored some beautiful Hilfiger winter coats, Dr. Suess converse that her sons just didn't have the chance to wear and some other really cute items! I may be jumping the gun, but a boy is pretty much guaranteed as I was informed on my phone call with MoT last week!!!! LOVE IT!!!!

-Getting my butt whooped at boot camp with my sister... actually the feeling after the workout I should say...I can't say I love the feeling of working out, but I do love the good feeling after the fact!

-Lounging in a hot bath after said butt whooping, eating popcorn and drinking a blood orange San Pellegrino. Yup that's right, I love to eat after I work out!!

-and now I look forward to an evening with my husband and my furbabies!

-Oh and I also LOVE this:

Psalm 113
Hallelujah! You who serve God, praise God!
Just to speak his name is praise! Just to remember God is a blessing-now and tomorrow and always.
From east to west, from dawn to dusk,
keep lifting all your praises to God!

God is higher than anything and anyone,
outshining everything you can see in the skies.
Who can compare with God, our God,
so majestically enthroned,
Surveying his magnificent heavens and earth?
He picks up the poor from the dirt,
rescues the wretched who've been thrown out with the trash,
Seats them among the honored guests,
a place honor among the brightest and best.
He gives childless couples a family,
gives them joy as the parents of children!!!!!!

One last thing I love about today:

-that the creator of the universe loves my child more than I do

And just in case you missed that last part:

He gives childless couples a family,
gives JOY as the parents of children!!!

That is the best!

And just for fun some photos I uploaded today that I love:


Nephews, nieces and friends at Arnie's 30th birthday, lined up watching Veggie Tales...looking so innocent...only moments before the basement was destroyed and 5 fights had broken out!

Dogs (who act like babies!!)

Oh man he is funny!!


  1. That is exciting Beka!! A boy - buying boy clothes... love it :) I've bought clothes for Giselle next summer, in faith that she will be here to wear them. Matching dresses with her and Amara. There is just something about the planning by preparing.
    I love that scripture as well. Beautiful. Children are such a joy!

  2. I love that you are preparing... that it is getting so close!

    I love that you are choosing to be positive and see the good things.

    And yes, God will bless the childless with children!

  3. Yay!!! How exciting buy things for your little boy!! Hope we hear some news soon!!
