How is it already Thursday!? I swear the weeks are just flying by lately!
Here are some of my thoughts running through my head.
*One of things that has me the most excited about moving back to NC is being close to my family again. It will only be a 10 hour drive which is FAR better than the 15 hours it is now. I miss not seeing them regularly and it will be so great to have them come up to visit us with ease (we won't be living on post this time!).
*Thanks to so many amazing friends (some who follow this blog) and family I have successfully reached my fundraising goal for Team Homes for our Troops for the Chicago Marathon! While I may have reached my goal the fundraising doesn't have to stop, I want to continue to support and raise money for this organization. You all have been amazing! Speaking of this event, I booked my hotel and my airfare! It's really happening!
*I took both Emma and Fishy to the vet this week and $250 later they are up to date on everything. Let me say that taking pets and a toddler to the vet together is interesting haha. It's hard to decipher which one is whining the most.
*I am OVER this Kansas weather. It honestly does not know what it wants to do. We had beautiful and sunny 60 degree weather over the weekend followed by horrendous winds and cold temperatures again. Get your act together, I want to enjoy it here for the next 2 1/2 months. Don't ruin it.
*We have a lot of fun things planned over the next few weeks. We are trying to take advantage of the time we do have before the chaos of moving really kicks in. There is a lego exhibit called Art of the Brick at Union Station that I've been wanting to check out, hoping to check that off this weekend since it's only here for a limited time.
*Lastly, I've been thinking a lot about my Mom lately. This is a constant occurrence but this month marks 7 years since she passed away. It's hard to believe that it has been that long, some days it feels like yesterday. We are working on coming up with something to do on that day to honor her. We have a few ideas but I hope we can make it a special day and share with E how awesome her grandma was.
Wishing you all a great Thursday!
