10 Things to Smile About: August 2010

It's that time again! Another month is over (HOW DID THAT HAPPEN???) and it's time to link up with Emmy Mom! Here's what I'm smiling about:

1. A bake sale at work today to benefit the United Way. And specifically, these Key Lime cupcakes I made. I hope they taste as good as they look! I've already had 2 people ask for the recipe, so I'll take that as a good sign!

2. Getting to see my sweet niece. My sister tells me she's rolling over like champ, now, too!

3. I got to spend time with an old friend from high school and her precious almost-1-year-old son last night! It was so good to see her--and so crazy to think she has a baby of her own! He's just adorable, too.

4. Hubs and I have committed to working out in the mornings. It's going pretty well thus far (though this morning reminded me that I must.go.to.bed.earlier.when.waking.up.at.five.)

5. Having wonderful friends. I'm just so grateful for them!

6. This lovely spot of oceanfront.
7. Back-to-school kickoffs at church. I just love it when we get back into the swing of things for the school year.

8. Getting to use some of my fun serving dishes that we got as wedding gifts.

9. Feeling especially grateful for my parents and in-laws. I don't see them nearly as often as I should--especially since we all live in the same town! But, they are wonderful, and make me smile :)

10. Tomorrow is September.

Head on over to Emmy Mom's to link up!

Great list! Your niece is so cute. When my parents lived in the same town I took it way for granted and didn't use them for babysitting nearly enough.

My husband and I have been married for ten years and I still love using my serving pieces that we got as wedding gifts and remember who gave me every.single.one.

It's so nice to have found you through EmmyMom. I love sweet new blogs.
