Small Successes-July 1st
Celebrating the little things in life that add up.
1. I have survived the first week of summer vacation with both kids. So far we've really only had one day where I wanted to rip out my hair or run away. I think that alone is a pretty big success. Wouldn't you agree?
2. Madeline and I went to Confession on Saturday. After day one of summer vacation with both kids, I think it was glaringly evident that we both needed it.

Bonus: This is Bryan's success but I'm loving every bite of it. He has done a little experimenting in the kitchen this week and has begun making pizza! Sometimes he simply amazes me. On Monday we made a regular cheese pizza that had a crust that tastes like the French bread they serve at Texas Roadhouse (the only thing I like about that place.) and last night he made me a pizza that is very similar to the Rainforest Cafe's Brave New World pizza (Clearly having the Rainforest Cafe BBQ sauce helps tremendously.). This just goes to show that we really can live without eating take out all of the time. I never thought I'd be so excited about eating at home. Since June 18th we have prepared all of our meals at home with the exception of the McDonald's I brought for me and the girls yesterday while we were visiting the beach and my parents. The kids were delighted to get their hands on some food from an outside source.
