So this may be some what of a shallow post, but I'm trully greatful for my postman
(insert...hey, hey wait a minute Mr. Postman).
I'm pretty sure he has a crush on me because
early last week he dropped this zinger off for me.

I know, big whoop...I love me some Southern Living, but wait!
Hey, hold the phone I know this face on pg. 106!

Yes, folks PW came to my town. Umm, mailbox . Umm, okay she's just in the magazine, but I was SO excited!  Who's Pioneer Women??? WhAtTtT!!!!! Excuse me, please let me introduce 'THE" Pioneer Women, aka Ree Drummond, Aka Mrs. Marlboro Man...

I may have to put out a restaining order on the postman,
because he apparently doesn't know I'm married,
on account of this came later in the week.....

Oh. MY. Word.  I'm speechless....and HUNGRY!  The pages were as pretty as the glossy toy ads I drooled over as a kid!  Okay confession... I totally pre-ordered this baby from Amazon.

And it was a Christmas present to myself, but as my family can already attest...this was definitely a gift for the whole family.  I already have flour marks in the pages, which made me tear up a bit. So thank you Mr. Postman & Thank you Mr. Drummond for lending us your amazing wife!

On to some real GRATITUDE!

I love these guys!  I love our fun filled days of being home together, even when we get on each others nerves.  I love that the kids convinced me Easy Bake Oven cooking would taste delicious...it DID not!  I love that we box our Daddy.  For PE.  In our house.  I love that I homeschool.  More and more everyday.  And I love that I no longer have to have a picture of my family on my desk, because I get to stare into their eyes all day long!

Join the GRATITUESDAY blog carnival at Heavenly Homemakers...you'll be grateful you did!

Beautiful post. I love my Southern Living too but haven't had a chance to sit down and peruse my latest issue. Must do that. And I love your last line about staring into their eyes.

You know today was one of those crazy homeschooling days...I love them...as crazy as they are..they remind me how much I'd miss if they weren't here!

What a wonderful post. There is nothing like being home with our kids is there? I wouldn't trade it for anything.

My family gives Southern Living subscriptions every Christmas, and I mean all my family...everyone ends up with at least two copies of every issue. And between cutting out recipes, spilling coffee, kids carrying them off for diorama and collage, the nursing home we always mean to take the extras to is lucky to end up with a handful every once in a while. They do appreciate the goodies we've made from the recipes, however.

Great post, I hope ya'll are well.
