it's the little things linkup!

After a short holiday break, we're back at it with the Little Things linkup! 

 Things are slightly overwhelming at the moment-- my house is a disaster zone, Si keeps waking himself up from his nap, and I have yet to wash my face this morning. But I needed to sit for a moment and think on some of the little happy things from this week to keep my head from exploding. :) 



I'm sipping on this iced coffee right now and that's my last stripey straw. After a rough night of sleep last night, I'm hoping this will give me the boost I need to get through the morning. 


Si has started to reach around behind him for the globe we have on his changing table. Even though it makes diaper changing a bit more of a challenge, I love seeing him noticing things like that and seeing him try to spin it. Also, it's pretty neat to see my own kiddo playing with something I played with my whole childhood.


The laundry is ridiculous right now. Coming back from vacation is no joke. But as I was getting frustrated about it this morning, I realized how blessed we are to have more than enough clothing to keep us warm and how easy it is for us to keep those clothes fresh and clean.


Up until this summer, I owned a beautiful color wheel necklace from the Yellow Owl Workshop. And then somewhere in our move, I lost it. Chris bought me a replacement necklace for Christmas and it made me squeal when I opened the box. Also, how awesome is their packaging??


Now it's your turn!


party rules.

1. Only link to your specific blog post, not to your blog's main page. See here for more explanation.
