It's the lil moments that count...

This weekend was full of moments that if I could I would want to relive them over  & over again. That’s what makes life so precious. Those lil things that tug at your heart & make it smile…

 ~Taking a West Coast Swing class with your boyfriend & actually completing the steps. Seeing the determination on CJ’s face to learn the new moves was awesome! I was so impressed. I’ll admit the thought creeped into my head of maybe just maybe I might dance with him like this on our maybe future wedding day...

~Being all snuggled up with CJ in bed & then in the middle of the night feeling a lil sleepy kiss on my shoulder that went straight to my toes.

~Early Christmas shopping in the mall NOT by yourself, but with someone who is there merely because 
you’re there & wanted to spend the day with you.

~A lil kitty snuggling between CJ & me in the morning just to be petted by both of us.

~Shopping for all the ingredients for Shrimp Tacos & then cooking them all together. It was so yummy we sorta sat in silence just enjoying it.

~Cleaning behind the oven & finding a sea of cat toys & a penny from 1938. Hehe. I hope it hadn’t been there THAT long.

~Sitting at TGIF’s watching the end of the NJ Jets game together & CJ turning to me saying, “I just love you so much.”

~And realizing that for the first time ever that I have everything I ever wanted all wrapped up in a 6ft man with dragon tattoos. It took me years to find him & I’m don't think I can ever let him go. =)

What was your Favorite Lil Moment of the weekend?

This week is going to be a whirlwind for everyone. Baking, shopping, eating, traveling, and rushing around. Hopefully we’ll have lil moments of happiness to enjoy & tell. I hope so very much. Can’t wait!

I had a great time at a local bloggers meetup last night and loved visiting a friend that just had a baby today. Then we went with our families to look at our new house, which I'm super excited for.

All your moments sound absolutely lovely! For me the best bits of last week have been laughing with my colleagues, eating pizza for breakfast, gazing longingly through the window at the Lulu Guiness store and listening to music on my iphone while the countryside rushes by my train window.

Those are some sweet moments. My best friends came to visit me for the weekend which is always a blast. I got a little slice of home while I was still at school... And I really needed that. (Getting homesick. At least I get to go home tomorrow for Thanksgiving.)

P said...

Wow, what a post! I'm so happy for you I could burst. And so jealous too. I want a guy like that!!!

Christina In Wonderland said...

I'm not even the romantic girly type, but I seriously wanted to go, "Aw." I'm glad you have someone you can share those special little moments with. :) Enjoy it! Always treasure the little things.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

This whole post made me go "awwwwww!!!" out loud. Lol. You and CJ are just too freaking cute, I swear. I love it!! I'm glad you had an awesome weekend. xoxo

Jen said...

Those sound like the perfect little moments.
I think mine was the first snow fall of the season. I just got my hair cut and spend lots of money at the bookstore. I stood waiting for the bus in the snow feeling so happy :)

Lady Grey said...

Such a sweet post! I wore a long dress this weekend - completely out of my normal style, but it impressed my husband and my close gal pals! My husband kept saying how much he loved me in that dress. It fed my ego and boosted my self esteem immensely so I gotta admit, that was my fav part of the weekend :)

Pop Champagne said...

I've always wanted to do a swing class. and awww kitty. my million dollar idea is make some pill for kittens and puppies where kittens stay as kittens and never grow into cats and dogs. lol

ChinkyGirLMeL said...

Awww...this is such a sweet post. Sweet simple moments are moments that I definitely treasure. Oh and by the way, I've never had Shrimp Tacos, that sounds sooo good.

Swing Classes! How fun! I love swing music - the sax, the clothes, all of it. Fun!
