HIGH FIVE FOR FRIDAY | 12.20.13

-one-
J and I were gratefully given a few gift cards for “restaurants we probably wouldn’t go to on our own budget”.  One from my grandparents {which we are saving for our next date!} and one from my parents.  We used one of these to celebrate my employment on Tuesday. 
And it was so good.
-two-
Even filling out paperwork for this job is exciting. I couldn’t sleep the night before. And I couldn’t get it done fast enough.  Josh teased me for reading the handbook so thoroughly. I’m thankful I have a job I can be so excited about.
-three-
While perusing the aisles of Hobby Lobby. A dangerous pastime, I know.  I spotted these photo albums with little pockets and an adorable set of inserts that go with them.  I love documenting this silly life and love the permanence of a physical, printed picture.  My mom has a cedar chest full of photo albums.  One for each year from 1988-2013.
I want at least a little taste of that for our future children.
-four-
Josh and I are joyously living our Christmas break days.  Yesterday we made the trek halfway across town to St. George’s.  Morris vote for best donuts. And we know our stuff.
-five-
Yesterday we scoped out a local used book store and I stocked up on several children’s books. I want my preschoolers to have an excellent library, filled to the brim with good books. While on a budget, this is tricky.  But I am thankful for used book stores and a few donations from my childhood library.
