{thankful} for rest.

I didn't mince words last week when I hinted that a break was in order.
My man took three days off last weekend, which was so needed for both of us.
We worked in the yard, ate donuts, were blessed to see my sister baptized (woot woot), 
visited with friends, and watched movies after the kids went to bed.
It was awesome.
And this coming weekend... I can barely contain my excitement.
My wonderful, gracious, rockin' parents are coming to stay overnight with the boys
so that Nick and I can take the train to Portland.
I'm going to my first ever blogger meet up (holla), we'll go to the Saturday market,
sleep in (heck to the yes) and eat donuts (do you see a theme?).

I seriously cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to this. 
A night away with Nick in a different city, tax free shopping, meeting new friends,
and uninterrupted sleep. Total refreshment in my book.
Thank you, Jesus.

What happened in your week that makes you grateful?
I'd love to hear about it.
Grab a button, link up, and make friends!
