it's the little things:: lizards and turquoise toes


There's so much big stuff going on this week as we wait for Si, it's been refreshing for me to think about the little, every day things that make me smile. I'm constantly amazed at the way God continues to bless us, not only in major ways, but through the seemingly mundane too. 

I got my hair cut two weeks ago and haven't been really happy with it. I called my salon and asked if they would be willing to fix it for me. Not only am I super excited about my improved trim, but the stylist who cut my hair was an adorable girl from Moldova, who I know I'll be going back to often! A haircut that finally feels like me + a new favorite stylist = big smiles over here. 

We have two adirondack chairs that sit outside our front windows. If the heat and humidity ever subside, I'm sure we'll spend many a night watching the sunset from these chairs, but until then, the little lizards (I think they're called anoles?) get pretty good use out of them. It makes me giggle a little to see them perched on the chairs, just chilling. 

I can't reach these toes anymore and I was hankering for some pampering so I went for a pedicure last week. I opted for a bold turquoise shade in honor of my little boy. Also, this is the least swollen my feet have been all week. Hallelujah! 

Those are just a few of the things that have been keeping me smiling as we wait for Si. What are the little ways you've been blessed this week? Link up your posts below!

  4. I love those little lizards!

    it's hard to find a good stylist. we just moved to a new city and personally i'm kind of afraid of going to a new place. people always cut off several more inches of my hair than i ask and i've been trying to grow it out for about a year now.

  5. I was praying for you this morning! The last week of my pregnancy was the hardest - so much anticipation and anxiety and discomfort and excitement. It was just such an emotional time! I remember taking a bath one night while Andrew went to pick up dinner and just crying, crying, crying because I was so ready to meet my son. I imagined how many other moments like that had taken place between God and his daughters - mamas who were just READY. And how exciting it must be for Him to know the joy they were about to experience. And the next day, I went into labor :)

  9. This post made me smile!

    Your hair looks adorable. I'm so glad you found a great stylist.

    Aw...the lizards! We have geckos that come and climb one of our windows during certain seasons. It's so fascinating to sit and watch them catch bugs and climb about.

  11. Loving your haircut! Always great to feel awesome about how it looks and feels!

    So getting matching turquoise toes next time I get a pedi (which is like once every year - since I'm madly ticklish during the exfoliation part... eek!)

    Feeling dumb, but it can't hurt to ask... I LOVE THAT PATTERN under your toes! Please, please... source? :)

  12. Those little lizards are so adorable! My grandmother had a place down in Florida for quite a few years before she passed away, and we loved playing with those little guys. I'm sure once your lovely baby boy arrives, it won't be long until he starts causing mischief this them too. :)
