Perspective

Every once in a while (read: daily) something happens that puts life back in perspective.  Every morning I wake up and thank God for giving me another day.  Every day I thank Him for my husband, my pup, our wonderful families, and the cozy roof over our heads. 

However, on a regular basis I find myself getting caught up in thinking about the things I want right.now. (read: babies, a house, no debt) and forgetting to just cherish the amazing things that are happening right now all around me.  D and I both have jobs that we LOVE, an apartment that has been a perfect little place to start our life together, and the sweetest darn pup you ever did see. 

We have amazing families, our health, and we fall more and more in love with each other every day. 

One of my favorite bloggers Christina posted about her dad finding out he has cancer, and her mother just recently went into remission after her own battle with cancer.  I read her post and couldn't help but start tearing up.  I can't imagine what she must be going through.  I pray for her and her beautiful family.  I pray that they be strong and that her dad can fight his battle with cancer and beat it.  I pray that God watch over them.

During this holiday season, I am trying every single day to just be thankful and grateful for everything I have in this life.  Someday we'll have a house, and until then I'm going to enjoy the fact that I have a roof over my head and an amazing apartment complex that comes to the rescue whenever we have an issue.  Someday we'll have babies, and while I hope this day comes sooner rather than later, D and I are remembering to enjoy the time we have that's just us. Someday we'll have (less) debt, but for now we are working hard to pay it off and that's enough.

I pray you all remember to cherish each day and to always spend time being thankful for all you have, and not waste time on the things you don't.

6 Month Anniversary + Decking The Halls

I had a great week at work last week but I was still more than ready for this weekend to arrive.  Friday night I was long over due for a night out and I had a blast catching up with friends and enjoying a few cold beers.  On Saturday I went to a baby shower and then babysat for some really cute kiddos- fantastic way to watch kids movies, play games, and make some extra cash on the side.

Today was much more eventful and an overall fantastic day with my little family.  D had a meeting at work this morning so I got to ease into my day with a festive cup of coffee and puppy snuggles.
 We may or may not have purchased this fantastic hat at Target today.
When he was finished we made a quick stop at the storage unit to pick up our Christmas decorations and then stopped at Target to get a million more.  I'm obsessed with all the cute stuff we picked up! 
We started decorating, but we're saving the tree for tomorrow, on account of we are stuffed to the brim after an amazing dinner date at Carmine's on Penn. My sister Jen got us a gift certificate for our wedding and we were so excited to get to use it for our 6 month anniversary...they have been nothing short of amazing.  I'll summarize all that in a million pictures...
 Love our new snow globe!

 Branch bundle and candles everywhere.
 This potpourri smells so delicious.
The puppy got some pjs :)
 Great wreath from Target last year.
 Tried and true favorites on the mantel...a certain puppy already has some treats in his stocking!
 Celebratory drink.
It's going to be a Merry Merry Christmas!
I got distracted by eating and only remembered to take a picture of our amazing sausage and peppers.  We also had yummy garlic rolls, caesar salad, and baked ziti.  #foodcoma

Needless to say, the Felecos household had a fantastic weekend.  Now to get some rest before an awesome 4-day work week (Friday off!).  Happy Sunday!
