sweet moments to remember: chilly summers, tornado messes, and blessing upon blessing

I don't know about you, but July keeps surprising me by being amazing. :) 

There were lots of moments from the last week that I want to remember...like these girls washing dishes together:


They were just babies yesterday, and now they can do the dishes!! I hope to see that sight hundreds more times. ;) 

Then there was a very memorable tornado-like mess in the office...possibly the first time in year we did a full closet cleaning:


And of course I can't contain it to just one room... ;) {and this is after it was mostly done!}


And then... oh my goodness- it was the coldest week in July I can ever remember! It was 68 degrees and overcast at noon one day, and the highs were in the low 70's several days in a row! :) What is happening?? 

The boys look like they're trying to be friendly here but it was really a ploy to stay warm while we ate outside:


Same with the girls. :) It was so strange- it felt like early November!! 


And in honor of nearly a week of pretend fall we had our first peach cobbler this year:


And then on Saturday, I took my first trip to Tuesday Morning:


I didn't find anything there, but it was interesting! I can't believe I hadn't been before. The prices were higher than I expected on most things. Do they have good sales? I couldn't figure it out.

We actually ran lots of errands on Saturday, and while the hubs and kids went to Lowe's, I hit the gym and got on the stair climber for the first time in ages...


That thing is insane. You're dripping sweat from head-to-toe about 45 seconds in! :) I love that burn, man.

Good thing too, because on Sunday, I ate this entire brownie by myself:


Brownie points for you {ha!} if you can tell me where it was from!!! 

And then a fun {and productive} weekend ended with my some of my very favorite moments during every week:


God is so gracious to allow us to have sweet times like those. I know it won't be long before those little girls and boys are going to be starting life on their own, so I want to enjoy this season all I can while it is here. :)

How was your weekend?

Do you ever have moments when you look around and feel that you are ridiculously blessed too?

Did the cold front come through your neck of the woods last week? 
I loved it!!
