Here are three small ways we have found a little comfort this week at our house.
What's funny about my current love for oatmeal is that when I was growing up I hated oatmeal. A couple of years ago, I decided to give it another shot, and surprise, surprise! I actually liked it. These days I love it.
Whole Foods is having a sale this week on Three Sisters Oatmeal. Featuring eco-friendly packaging, this oatmeal is full of whole grains, flaxseed, and all natural ingredients, and wait for it---it comes in Dark Chocolate flavor!
As if having healthy chocolate oatmeal wasn't great enough, the packets double as a measuring cup.
No more wondering if I have too much/too little water. No more breaking out a measuring cup just to be safe. Just fill the packet to the line, and voila...a perfectly mixed bowl of oatmeal--not too runny and not too thick.
Emily and Andrew LOVE bath time, so much so, that some nights, it's a struggle to get them out of the tub.
For Christmas this year, we gave them hooded animal towels: a kitty cat for Emily and a puppy dog for Drew. I found them on clearance at Target for $7.98 each, which is is a great deal since the Target website currently has them listed for $12.99. (I am sure Target isn't the only place you can find hooded towels, though).
So besides being cute and warm (I giggle every time I see the little tail wagging behind them), what is so great about these towels?
Emily and Drew love them so much that when we are ready for them to get out of the tub, all we have to do is hold up the towels. Drew starts barking, "AH-AH," and Emily does her best "me-ow." We wrap them up tight and they bark and meow straight out of the bathroom to the bedroom where their pajamas are waiting.
Not all of the comforts we love cost. Imagine my surprise this week when I found this waiting for me:
He even had my snuggle pillow waiting for me!
So thankful to have been wrapped in the comfort of warm and tender love this past week...
