Micah wanted to spend some daddy time with the two and so he took them to the park. While they played I was able to clean the house, gut our closets, made all our meals and even had time to shower and get ready for a very special night out with Micah Saturday night.You see we had made plans with another couple to go out without our tots in tow. They were going to be in our neck of the woods, so for the very first time since having the babes we got a sitter. Now I know this may sound crazy to most of you but the only peeps that have watched our littles have been family. We travel with them everywhere and just always have them with us and so on the occasional outing my parents may come over or my lil' bro' and girlfriend watch them. Since no one was available and we really wanted to hang with our friends we had a very close friend watch them for the night. The thing is our friends ended up getting sick and had to cancel and so we initially called off the sitter but Micah thought it would be fun to just go out walking around, shopping and maybe grabbing a bite. Just us. So even with all sorts of anxious feelings in the pit of my stomach we decided to keep the sitter and go have a fun adult evening out. And yes it was glorious!
Sweet kisses being stolen
and just some all around great time together.
Of course Elsie was still awake when we got home and was told Vernon went to bed almost two hours past his bed time but they were safe, happy and slept in today. No harm done and totally worth it.
Today has been so sweet. I was so bummed knowing I'd have to miss church and stay back with the babes...*sigh* again. Then Micah being on a roll with great ideas this weekend said for me to get ready and go solo first service and then come home so he could go serve second service. At first I was like "ummm no, I don't want to go by myself" but then realized that my heart really wanted to go and if that meant having to go solo, so be it.
And I was blessed. Worship was wonderful and the message was full. Full of wisdom, encouragement and applicable insight to push me to want to be better, try harder, do more for my Jesus.
Now that I've emptied my second cup of jo' + finished my grocery list for the week I'm off to snap photos of the last pieces of clothing that will be added to my new Cannoli Closet Instagram Sale. Yes you read that right. I recently have been buying a lot of the kids clothes (and even some of my own) through insta sales and since we are in the process of downsizing and praying whether we should be moving into a smaller home I felt the need to gut some of our closets, and then the idea sprang forth of @cannolicloset. Hope you'll stop by tomorrow as I launch this thang! If there's nothing for you maybe there is something for a friend so just send them my way! There will be new and slightly used, vintage, mens and some toddler goodness!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Also, this scripture rang in my ears this weekend and thought I'd share.
"But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man shall be blessed in what he does."
