it's the little things:: kona mud pie ice cream & baby's first portrait

This linkup/series continues to make me grin. I love taking a few moments to think about the small blessings in my week that have made me smile and made the week just that much better. This week has been filled with lots of little things and has left me feeling grateful, loved and oh so happy.

... sweet indulgences. I have been known to find pretty much any reason under the sun to indulge. Deployed husband? Check. 100 sales? Check. No sales? Check. Pregnant? Oh, yes, definitely check. Cuz you know, the baby wants ice cream, right? ;) And this is the best ice cream eveeeer, my friend. Roselani's Kona Mud Pie.




... tiny surprises in the mail. My little brother bought me these earrings from joojooland on etsy for Christmas and they finally arrived the other day. The packaging was adorable and I am in loove. Thank you AJ! 

(He doesn't read my blog, so I could probably say all sorts of embarrassing things about him... but I'll refrain. ;)




... baby's first portraits on the fridge. I love seeing our ultrasound images on the fridge door every day. The top one is at 7 weeks and the bottom is at 10 weeks. So thankful for technology that allows us to see that gummy bear grow.





Got little things for the week? I'd love for you to link up! Or share what made you smile this week in the comments below. Have a beautiful weekend!





party rules.

1. Only link to your specific blog post, not to your blog's main page. See here for more explanation. 

2. Grab a button and/or include a link back to this post so your readers can come see what the fun is all about! You can find the code for the button on the sidebar or on the "little things" page.

3. Make sure you visit (and comment) on other posts linked up-- what fun is a party if no one talks to each other? Make some new friends! 

4. I reserve the right to kick you out of the party if you aren't playing nice-- so make sure your post is relevant to this party and is actually a "little things" post (ie. no giveaways, random posts from last month, etc.).

  10. I'm so embarrassed, in my easily distracted bouncing all around way I totally missed your "rules" for the link party and linked my main page. I just noticed as I popped back in on my lunch break to check out a few blogs. My sincere apologies and it won't happen again... Happy happy Aloha Friday!
