My Cup DOES Runneth Over

Last night my sweet friend LaRae handed me a package as we were all leaving Panera and I was SO excited because THIS is what I opened...

I don't know where she found this, but I LOVE IT. I had been thinking that this wall needed something, but had no idea what. As soon as I walked in the house, it was this plaque's destiny to hang there. I asked Shane to hang it last night, he wasn't too interested. He thinks I get a little over excited with my need to get something decorated. I didn't understand why 9 pm wasn't a good time to hang this on a wall that might have woken the kids...ha!

So this morning, once the caffeine kicked in, I got out MY cordless drill, an anchor, and a screw and hung that baby up!

Now I am motivated to set up an appointment to do the next set of pictures to change out all of the ones in these frames. They are mostly of Avery and are going to get moved to the stairwell so that more pictures of Reece and Ellie (when she gets here) can be up there.

Thank you LaRae,
It made my weekend, after a long week, sick kiddos, and multiple cancelled Christmas functions! It reminded me that despite those things, I am one blessed mama! I'm so thankful for our friendship and I won't ever see this sign without thinking of you!

Seriously just needs a spray of magnolia blossoms above the sign to make it allllll come together!

OH I love magnolias. They make me miss South Carolina. I'm not a huge fan of fake flowers though, so I would need you to send me a picture of what I should look for. I would prefer a real magnolia tree! ha!
