What I'm Loving Wednesday

After taking last week off of blogging, I'm glad to be back in the swing of things.  Link up with Jaime at This Kind of Love if you want to play along!

I'm loving that we FINALLY got our tax money!  Yep - you read that right.  It is August and we just got our return $$.  And yes, we filed in MARCH.  They put some dumb hold on our money and wouldn't give it to us!  It has been such a battle and even our accountant has been calling them constantly.  In the end, they never even asked us for additional information - just gave us the money.  They held our money for so long that THEY ended up have to pay US interest!  So glad to finally have it!

I'm loving that I finally got to book our vacation for Disney!  We've been waiting on that tax money to do it, so I was super happy that I could quit talking about it and make some reservations!  We're going for 5 days over the week of Thanksgiving and I know that LL is going to LOVE it!

I'm loving that LL is POOPING IN THE POTTY!!!  We're still in the learning stages, but she's doing it!  I wish I could tell you what a huge deal this is for her.  I promise when she's been doing it consistently for awhile I'll do a post telling you what we did.  Because I know you're dying to know.  ;)

I'm loving that we had such an awesome Sunday at church this past weekend.  We missed it the week before because of Ben's birthday and I was so happy to be back.  We absolutely LOVE our church and I think that's such a blessing!  LL has also been loving church, too.  As a parent, I think that is probably one of the best things every - seeing your child enjoy church.  Sunday on the way home, she randomly said "I love church!" and it just melted my heart!  When I picked her up from her class, she had colored a picture of a whale.  On the way home, I said to her, "You did a great job coloring your whale!  Can you tell me about the whale?" and didn't say anything else.  She didn't answer me right away, and I actually thought she wasn't going to at all.  Then after a minute she said, "The whale swallowed Jonah!" and then proceeded to tell me how to open my mouth like the whale and to say "gulp!".  I just LOVE that she's learning in her class and taking so much in!

I'm loving that I survived my first week at school.  I have been absolutely exhausted, but I've made it.  Is it too early to start the countdown for summer?  ;)

I'm loving that I finally got my massage from the gift card Matt got me a few weeks ago.  It was literally the best massage that I've ever gotten and I needed it so badly!  Now if I could just get one every week - haha.

I'm loving that Matt and I are taking a mini-vacay with some friends this weekend.  We didn't really do a vacation at all this summer, so we very much need to get away for a little bit. 

What are you loving this week?
