Three Things Thursday, 5/8/14

Three Things Thursday is an exercise in gratitude… A shout out to the little things in life that make life awesome that originated on Nerd In The Brain, another awesome blog that you should all totally check out!

This week I am grateful for:

Spring, it’s May in NH and this spring has finally sprung! That means Liam, The Bean, Da, the puppy brothers, and I finally can go outside and play! Liam has overcome his fear of the outdoors and the park up the street is our new favorite hang out. I can’t wait until they get the water park part of it going 🙂

Watching Liam and The Bean race each other to climb up to the top of the slide and then head down like they are experts is something I could do every day if weather permitted and I had an extra set of arms 🙂

The second thing I am grateful for is…


Video baby monitors.
That’s right, the baby spy cam.
Some people though that getting a video baby monitor was a waste of money, but as someone who has one video and one sound only baby monitor I have to say I have a very strong preference for the video. I love this little Motorola monitor that I got from the motherland (Target) while it was on sale for less than $100. It is definitely high up there on my list of recommended baby items… It certainly beats peaking under the door to see if the kiddo is still in bed at nap time (it’s an old house).

Last up for this Thursday is…


Chalkboard paint!
It’s pretty cool and fairly inexpensive. This is our first venture into the world of chalkboard paint and we used it as a backdrop to Liam’s kitchen…. Once we get the kitchen put together 🙂

That is it for this week! Have a happy Thursday!
