Makes My Monday

Finding this in Darren's backpack this morning as I retrieved his lunch box to fill.
[He had me at the peek-a-boo pilgrim.]

Seeing this smiling girl with a pack-full of My Little Ponies heading out to deliver them yesterday to a much-beloved, and pony-loving, family friend.

Seeing this gorgeous couple in our home this weekend! Oh yes, at long last I finally got to meet face-to-face one of my very favorite friends, the lovely -- and seriously, look how lovely she is! -- Laura of Catholic Teacher Musings. The fact that she happens to be married to one of my oldest friends, Matt, just made the visit that much more special. [We only got to spend a short time together, but in those two hours, we demonstrated that uncanny BFF-ability to be thinking the same thing at the same time. Makes My Monday!]

Being the she-half of this couple. The look on Scott's face is the one he has right before he laughs...and I am so grateful my photographer brother extraordinaire captured it so wonderfully. [Why I am so protective of my husband's nipple, I don't know...but that odd hand placement also Makes My Monday!]

So do tell! After a long holiday weekend, what makes YOUR Monday? Post it, link back, and share it! We could all use a bit of Monday Making...

The picture of you and Scott cracks me up. It's an adorable picture, but of course after your comment, all I can think is you're doing a weird coverup. :-)

i am right there with goddess! i looked at the pic 1st, with thoughts of how lovely it is. and then i read your words, totally cracked up and now all i see is your hand on his nipple when i look at it. haha!

that is absolutely sweet...the drawing and generosity!

Missy said...

So cute! I love Darren's peek-a-boo Pilgrim! And I love the pic of you & Double Daddy! Made my Monday too!

Laura said...

I think I want to play "Makes My Monday" when I come home from the chiropractor tonight...
I think I know what will Make My Monday at that point.
Great pilgrim picture..what is he carrying in his right hand?
AND...little Miss Sarah took a good picture of Mr. and Mrs. Fetters- though my face is a bloat fest...more face to love I suppose.

Tracy said...

Great pic, and I snarfed when I read your "protecting his nipple" comment. :)

You could say your post made my Monday! (though I have much to be happy about in general today and everyday, too...)

I linked to today's post, which has lots of fun pics (IMHO, anyway.)

Brandi said...

Love the pic of you and Scott. Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

They are beautiful pics Cheryl. You and your husband always look so happy together. Love to see happy couples.

Rebecca said...

Great shot! I think it's nice that you're trying to protect his nipple!

Nikole said...

You just made my Monday with that photo of you and Scott. Thanks so much for sharing it. I needed a big smile today.

Two of my favorite bloggers got to meet! Wish I could have been a fly on the wall.

I love the pilgrim picture - the figure on the left is either a Native American or maybe a large puppy.

I never would have notice your hand in the last picture if you hadn't pointed it out! Too funny!

Giovanna Diaries said...

Ditto on what Goddess said. I'm sitting here at work reading your comment about it and am cracking up!

Sara said...

Love love this post, every little tid bit of it down to the odd hand placement. :-)
