Re-posted: Monday's Review

This is my favorite Nie post...well, there are so many, it's hard to choose. I love this one because it shows how grateful she is for her life. I look to her as an example and I think...how can I be more like her. With a post like this, you realize it is her attitude. I am pregnant with my first child and I hope and pray I can be anywhere near as good of a mother that Stephanie is.

Thank you for the updates,
Katie Slade

Today's highlights included:

1. the deadly combo: listing to motab (love is spoken here) + changing a diaper = sobbing my eyes out. sobbing because of the confirmation i received that I know what i am doing in my life right now is exactly what i am supposed to be doing right now.
its awesome.

2. calling mr. nielson at work to tell him how much i love him.

3. wearing my apron all day today, feeling like my wonderful mother

4. calling my wonderful mother to chat. loving that my sweet father is in the background making her dinner. those two, i tell you what.

5. my silhouette wall. i am not finished painting, but i couldn't wait. it looks rockin, i am happy with it.

6. fhe was a hit. we sang love is spoken here...again. cried again. something about these lines:

'i see my mother kneeling with her family each day,
i hear the words she whispers as she bows her head to pray'...
and
'mine is a home where every hour is blessed by the
strength of priesthood power'

7. re-covering my nana's chair (s) this one is covered in pink. love it.

8.watching cspan- i really really REALLY want him to win.

9. thought about lucy and her sweet note/pictures she sent me. while she was in england 2 1/2 years ago i stole her necklace- i found it today lucy, sending it your way. i love you

10. oliver and i swung on my porch swing for one hour while we watched the birds eat the bread we put on the fence for them. it was bliss.
11. thinking about my AZ sister in-laws. They are always genuinely happy. i love that about them. thinking about sister-in-law darin who had a hysterectomy today. i love you.
12. looking at courtneys/matt's blog and loving my own family so much!
and best of all,
13. watching mr. nielson giving himself a haircut in his birthday suit.
