It's Never Too Late for Popples

Thanks to this blog, a childhood wish of mine came true this Christmas. A few months back, I had shared some of my favorite toys from the 80's, and while I showcased a few of the toys that I actually possessed, I also shared a few of those that I didn't but always wanted and coveted.

Thanks to my mom, a loyal blog reader, I finally received my Popples. Two Popples and they're all mine! I love them both, but Polka Dottie is my favorite. I loved her back then and I love her now. Isn't it fun, even 25 years later, to receive something that you wanted but never got? Thanks, mom, for making a childhood wish come true this Christmas!

And just because I usually do my High Five Friday post, I figured I'd share with you a few more things that make me a happy girl.

These are just a few of the gifts that the Hub lavished on me this Christmas. (He did a great job this year; thanks babe!) It's slightly sad how excited I was to get a real respirator mask for my painting projects. It wasn't even wrapped and I'm pretty sure I squealed a bit. No more shaving years off of my life when I prime or spray! And the shirt he gave me is perfect, along with the mink wine sleeve. Who doesn't need a mink wine sleeve from Restoration Hardware? Um, pretty sure I do.

And lastly, this little man is usually sound asleep again by the time I leave for work, but this morning he was frolicking around the house as I got ready and led me to the couch where he let me know he wanted to be lifted up so he could nap there before I left. When he could tell I was going to oblige he started spinning around with his baby in his mouth to celebrate. So I gladly gave him a lift onto my cuddly blanket and he nestled in with his blue BFF on this chilly morning. It's the little things. He has my heart.

I hope you all have a great weekend! If you're in Rockford, be very careful out there. Freezing rain is just one more perk of this amazing winter we're having apparently. Ugh.
