oh friday, i am happy to see you. where have you been all week?
tonight malena wanted to go to the pet store to say hello to the animals, one of the routines that she does with her mema and papa. she had so much fun checking out the animals, she is such an animal lover. there was a little stool in the store, and she just started moving that stool around to wherever she wanted it to be in the store so that she could see the animals. it was hilarious, that girls knows what she wants and makes it happen (i know, i think that she gets that trait from me too;)) random thursday outing, very fun.
i am looking forward to this weekend and catching up on life.
a couple of highlights:
+++ soccer and swimming for malena
+++ i am going to buy happier at home, i really, really liked the happiness project so i am expecting the same for this one. saw good reviews on it today, including this one and this one
+++ i am going to complete my first assignment for my "unraveling class" which i am so thankful that i signed up for - class started this week and i am soaking it all up
