My Sunday Blessings

Happy Sunday!
Is it spring where you are yet???

This week has been pretty great!
* This past week I was officially medically cleared to move!
* Thomas submitted our packet and it was faxed to Vicenzia!
* When received, our sponsor hand-carried it so it wasn't left sitting around and was received back within 24 hours!
* Our military passports have arrived!
* Orders will be cut this week (SQUEAL!!!!!), and then we can apply for our Visas, arrange transportation of our SUV and household goods, and get our plane tickets. Holy Crap! We're really going to Italy!!!!!!!!!!!
* Thomas had a four day pass, starting on Friday, so we were able to have a Date Day! We had planned on going to the movies, but there were too many we wanted to see and couldn't make up our minds, lol! So we went to Target instead and got ALL of Bella's birthday presents (soooo spoiled!), and stocked up on things we these...
Yes, these are sock monkey slippers!
I sooooo NEEDED these!!!
* After spending a large fortune, we went to lunch at Atlanta Bread Co. I am actually going to miss this place because they have the BESTEST homemade soups and sandwiches!!!
* Then we came home to sit around in a carb coma til Bella came home from school, lol!
* We got news that somebunny I reallllly don't like just got orders for a really yucky assignment. (Karma - so gotta love it.) I totally hurt myself trying not to laugh in her face!
* Although Bella had a rough start to the week, she finished strong with two S+'s! If she continues on Mon-Wed, she can finally have her two movies that are gathering dust on top of the refrigerator!! Come on Bella!!!

Bella has been very good all weekend!
She slept in and then played quietly in her room so I could be a lazy Mommy in bed!
Saturday AND Sunday!!!!
And she LOVED her bagel with nutella on top!

The picture of the cherry blossoms on the tree looks so warm and inviting. It's very windy and chilly here today. Waiting for spring to return to us later this week.

Sounds like you had a great week. Nice to hear. And I love your sock monkey slippers. :)

Way to go Bella. I bet she gets to see those videos before Easter.

Have a great Sunday.

It's getting so close - Yahoo!! I can feel your excitement in your words - Don't you just love typing the word Vincenza!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the sock Monkey slippers. Did you get those at Target too? Those would be so cute in the baskets of my grown girls - and, of course, I need some too. Darling!

Allyson said...

I LOVE your monkey slippers!!! I want, want, want. Those are so superfabulous and they look VERY Italian!! So, does this mean that the little countdown clock on the right is inaccurate...because it seems to be me you won't be waiting no 134 days or whatever it is!!!

Thank you for my award, darlin'!! I can't wait to post it and share it with my 5 faves!! What a cute design you came up with!

Also?? Nutella and bagels?? We have the same soul. YUMS!

Way to go, Bella. Keep up the good work so Mommy doesn't have to dust those movies.
