The Best

When you open up your photo library on your phone to find 20+ selfies that your daughter recently took.

Finding money in the back pocket of your jeans. Cash that you seldom carry. More reason to go to the park with the carasoul with the kids.

Jumping in puddles. And your kid squealing with excitement at 8 in the morning. The other one? Smiling from ear to ear from watching.

Getting called off work unexpectedly. One of the most pleasant of all surprises.

When you hear loud giggling from the other room and walk in to see your kids rolling around on the ground laughing at each other and glowing. Just glowing with happiness.

Finding a love note in your "love jar" from your husband. One that makes you laugh and brings you back to 7 years prior and the dating life. Knowing he still makes you laugh like that.

Someone complimenting you on being a mom. Whether it's your mom, your niehgbor, your friend, or a complete stranger. It always makes you feel good inside. My philosophy? We should say it more often.

Deciding that you don't want to cook dinner tonight, and having the husband pick up pizza on his way home from work. And beer.

Nap time. Bed time. Kids that actually sleep. Better yet, at the same time. Sleep in general {when you can get it} is the best.

Feeling teeth coming through {finally} on the baby that has been screaming bloody murder for what feels like months. Teething is a whole new world for us {as we never experienced it with E}, and so we feel like we are first-time parents all over again.

Reuniting with a friend and patching things up. While dancing. While celebrating a marriage. It feels good.

A steak and shake milkshake. 

Your baby saying "Mama" for the very first time.

Cute dresses such as this one from Lil Sweetie Designs that has my daughter's initials on them. For whatever reason it makes her look like such a big girl. I love the great quality of the of the material that won't just easily rip like some of our other dresses.  Also, if you love all this monogrammed... then this is the shop for you! They have everything under the sun and moon, including blankets, bloomers, onesies, rompers, shirts, dresses, and more! And all monogramming is included in the price with each item!

Even though it is white, I have had no issues with washing it, and E twirled around in it and said "Mama I love it." I mean, what more do I need?  Use code :mrsten to get 15% off through Monday!

Knowing it's Friday and you have the whole weekend to enjoy the cooler fall weather with your family. 

Yup, that's the best.
