Counting Our Blessings - Link Up!

What a blessed week I had! I hope your week was full of blessings, too! I'm always so amazed at how God shows Himself in so many ways - large and small. We just have to be watching and keeping our heart open Him!

43.  It's been a very poodle week and that's always a good week. :) I found these adorable things at WalMart when I was with my hubby. Can you believe it? Aren't they just too cute?

A ring holder and a little box with poodles! They were very reasonably priced and so I got them both. I just adore the colors and, of course, the poodles!

Then after our Mother's Day dinner, we popped over to TJ Maxx to check it out. I have never been there and wanted to see what it's all about. I was very pleasantly surprised to find this!

Cute, huh? It's quite small so I won't be using it to drink coffee out of (I need a big cup of coffee! lol) but will use it on my desk to put some of my favorite pens in. I'm so happy to have found this!

44.  Speaking of poodles, we had the girls groomed with our favorite groomer and they came out so cute! She does such a fabulous job and I'm so glad I was able to find out where she's working now. Here's a picture of them.

Poor little Mitzi's ears get so tangled, even tho I brush them daily, that they look quite think from cutting the lumpy tangles out. She's slowly growing in her adult coat so this will get better, but right now, she looks a little pitiful. I adore her, tho, so her ears don't bother me in the least. Such sweet girls!

45.  I had the best Mother's Day - actually I got two days of pampering! We relaxed on Mother's Day and the guys put a casserole in the oven. I didn't really want to eat out on that day because I knew the restaurants would be packed and I'm not a crowd type of person. We did head out to Goodwill to check things out and I found this:

A really heavy duty lap table with a side pocket for my pens! This one is extra special because if you see, it has those silver clips on the top. That's so I could do this

Put some of my favorite pictures under the thick plastic cover. Don't you love this? I really needed a lap desk. I had one, but the top was so thin, it finally cracked and I couldn't use it anymore. This one is so thick and well made, I'm sure I'll be using it for years. I just love that I can put pictures under the cover, too.

46.  On Monday, we went to a restaurant that we've been hearing about for years but have never been to. Oh, my goodness...it was SO good! Plus the prices were really reasonable, which is always a plus. I think it's going to be our new favorite place to go! Then we went to TJ Maxx where I got the poodle mug and this

Aren't they gorgeous? Sticky notes and flags that are Parisian themed! I just love them! Again, very low priced so no guilt about getting it. I tend to be rather frugal and love to find a good deal.

We then went to the library where I needed to pick up some things on hold and popped into the little store they have there where they sell used books, cd's and dvd's. I found this beautiful old book for only $1.00!!

It didn't have a price on it, so I was very concerned that they would want a small fortune for it, but nope! Only one dollar!! Yay!

47.  I had such a lovely week. I had one day that I slept until 1:30 in the afternoon...I know! I'm still recovering from the past year and still have days where I will sleep and sleep. This day stands out, though, because I woke up, looked at the clock and it said 10:00 (or so I thought - I wear glasses and can't see very well without them). I got up, looked at the clock again, and it said 1:30!! What a shock! I guess I shouldn't look at the clock until my glasses are on! lol I'm so thankful that I can sleep when I need to, though. It so helps me when I'm really feeling weak!

What are your blessings? I'd love for you to share on the link up! You don't have to actually link up with your blessings - if you have an encouraging or fun post on your blog, I'd love for you to share!

Blessings - Julie
