Monday's: I'm Blessed

This monday (well, really sunday evening) I'm going to take you on a little trip through our weekend and   perhaps through pictures you can see some of the things I'm thankful for!  I'm linking up with Gretchen from "He Sows, She Sews" for a great weekly boost of refocusing on the many things I have to be thankful for- whether big or small. 

one of my terrarium succulents (in fact the only one remaining) has sprouted a new flower! see the little one on the bottom? I thought this little plant would be the first to die (all its roots fell of during transplant) but now it's flourishing! (and I'm really happy cuz I'm terrible with plants)

we had a little autumn-soup-potluck dinner at our apartment this weekend. I made two fresh loaves of bread using THIS recipe. Turned out yummy and pretty :)

we went to drop off overdue library materials after church and saw that pinkberry had opened! it's a frozen yogurt shop with a lot, lot, lot of topping options. We shared an original with brownie bites, cookies and creme, strawberries, organic gummy bears, and caramel sauce. How fun is spontaneous fro-yo? 

Also this weekend, we went upstate to visit my uncle (who is an optometrist) and get our eyes checked. After, I made Karl try on all sorts of AWESOME glasses like these sweet babies. 

While walking TO the library (to return materials and etc) I found this branch of pretty leaves and brought them home to decorate with. (even though everybody I passed looked and me like I was a bag lady for carrying around a stick with dried leaves on it)

I set them here for now. I know, I know, not super creative, but I'll figure something else for them later.  But for now, I still enjoy having a little bit of the autumn outside inside. 

What are you thankful for today?


  1. I love your pics! The leaves have a really great color to them, and I think that they are well placed in front of that bird cut-out. What fun for the frozen yogurt! I will have to see if they have one of those around here. That looks super yummy!

  2. Oh, home made bread! Wonderful. Doesn't it make the apartment super amazing??
    The leaves really are pretty. I like the idea of decorating with them. :)

  3. Home made bread. Yum. It turned out pretty too! Have a great weekend!

  4. Mmm your bread looks amazing. I've been cooking a lot lately, bread is something I need to do next! Those fall leaves are beautiful. I wish they'd start changing where I live!
