Celebrate the Small Things-July 22, 2016

It's Friday!  Let's Celebrate the Small Things with Lexa Cain! Tonja Drecker and I are her co-hosts.

First of all, I'd like to mention that I'm over at Patricia Lynne's blog today with a post about my Self-Help 101 series and why the books have such long titles.  Please check it out if you're interested!

This week has been really hot.  The heat index has been hovering between 105 and 120 degrees the past few days. Since I'm also awkwardly pregnant, that's made it difficult for me to function.  Heat doesn't normally bother me much, but it does now.  I guess I'll celebrate the fact that the excessive heat wave is almost over.

Don't think I'm complaining, though.  A lot of good things have happened.  The kids had a great time last weekend at our local town celebration.  Here are a few pictures.

Now for the really big news of the week.  My sister-in-law had a baby boy on Tuesday.  His name is Finley and he's healthy. Having a new nephew is definitely worth celebrating.

What would you like to celebrate?


  1. I hate the heat and it's been freakily hot here this past week. But it was a pleasant break from the rain. :)

    Those kids of your's are adorable!

    Enjoy the weekend!

  3. Congratulations on the new nephew! Looks like the kids had a lot of fun, but then they don't notice the heat as much. Hope you're feeling comfortable again soon!
