List: Friday Ramblings


My son was shook that...
...he caught a foul ball during the Ducks' baseball game!  Sitting behind home plate, I disregarded the foul ball sign.  I assumed that hitting a ball backwards would be highly unlikely.  When I heard my husband scream "Watch out!!" and I saw the foul ball heading straight for my baby, I jumped on top of him to shield him with my body.  There was just no time to move him.  The lucky and VERY happy baby boy, had the foul ball land right below his feet.  There he is modeling his perfect birthday prize.

I'm VERY distracted by...
...all the baby birds!  They're quite noisy outside of my office window.  All they do is chirp and beg for food.  Once I hear their sweet sound, I end up glued to the window snapping a million pictures of the little birdie bambinos.

I was surprised to see...
...a blue package addressed to me in the mail.  When I opened it, I saw an adorable stuffed pig my favorite animal and a note.  The note read "Thanks for all you do!!  You are a huge part of our success and keep this office driving forward!".  It was signed "your friends" and listed three of my peers at work.  This simple gesture meant so much to me that I almost got teary.  As much as I complain about my job, I have to admit that the family like bond some of us have developed is irreplaceable.

We're still laughing at...
...the joke we played on my husband!  The theme of my son's birthday party was Toy Story.  When I saw a man's t-shirt with Rex from Toy Story on it, I had to give it a closer look.  The shirt read "I'm a nervous-Rex" which describes my man perfectly.  My daughter and I bought it for him as a joke, but my husband wore it with pride and made sure that everyone knew what it said at the party!

I'm feeling extra...
...blessed this week!  I'm not sure why.  Maybe it's the relief of school being done.  Maybe it's because my baby turned three.  Maybe it's the influx of celebrations.  Or, maybe it's just everything.  Whatever it is, this feeling has me almost on a high and I don't want it to end.  I'm extremely grateful and am ready to relax with my family this Summer!

What are your Friday Ramblings?
