little things i’m loving this week

Bring on the coffee this morning!  Last night was a bit rough for Jon, myself and the little guy.  Sissy slept right through Bubba’s yelling – amazing how she can do that.  Yesterday the twins had their 6 month check-up, which of course came with their 6 month shots.  They are on a slightly delayed shot schedule, so they only got one, but it was still rough.  Both babies were fussy and didn’t nap well the rest of yesterday, so I was a little nervous about how last night was going to go.  First Linc didn’t want to go down at bedtime, which never happens.  Then he woke up at 12:30 and again at 3 and just cried and cried.  We ended up giving him Tylenol, which I always use as a last resort, and after I rocked and cuddled him for awhile, he went back to sleep.  Poor little guy.

So we shall all push through today, and make it the best we can.  The zoo with friends is on the agenda, and I’m debating about whether we should go or not.  But for now….it’s time for this week’s edition of all the little things that helped make this week great.

The Lumineers Album.  I’m sure you’ve all heard their song “Ho Hey,” and maybe I’m late to the party and everyone has already been rocking out to the album.  But if not – almost every single song is amazing.  I love their vibe and it’s just perfect for having on at the house when the twins and I are just hanging out playing all day.

I found this yogurt a couple of months ago, and I’ve literally eaten it almost every day we’ve been home since then.  My favorites are blueberry, peach and strawberry rhubarb.  I boil water in the tea kettle, pour it over 1/2 cup dry oats until the oats are completely covered, let it sit for about ten minutes until all the water is soaked up, and then add in 1/2 container of yogurt.  The result is smooth and creamy with little bits of sweet fruit throughout.  And let’s be honest, the packaging is beautiful.  But the best part is the company that makes it.  According to their website, it was created in Noosa, Australia, but is “hand-crafted daily, at a family-owned dairy farm of happy cows in Colorado, USA.”  The ingredients are simple and contain no artificial ingredients or preservatives.  Check out their website if you get a chance – really great people with a great story.   Oh, yeah, and you don’t have to make an extra trip to the health food store to snag a container.  It’s available at Target!  Okay, I’m done now:)

One night this week, we were happily leaving Whole Foods after a delicious dinner when an employee approached us and thrust a beautiful bouquet of tightly closed tulips into my hand.  She mumbled something about closing, flashed a sweet smile and then disappeared back into the store.  All week they’ve brought brightness to our living room, and I’ve loved watching them open up a little more each day.

What was the best part of your week?

    they do carry food just not an entire grocery selection like super T. I usually frequent yukon or rockwell/nw expway. Rockwell has a much bigger selection but still not complete :-/ But I’m seriously up north at least once a week (was up there today) so next time i’ll have to swing by and pick some up.

    I could do next wednesday. It would probably work best. I have to be home at 3 because that when Colin gets out of school so I was wondering if you and the babes would like to come over to my house?
