Hump Day Ramblings

Nothing too exciting going on in the Layman house this week, which is certainly fine by me. We've been having some very fall-like temps which has given us opportunity to use our firepit on the new deck & just enjoy being outside.

Tonight we've got plans for hamburgers & homemade french fries for dinner. I've decided that we may not have nice patio furniture yet, but I want to eat outside so we'll be having an impromptu picnic...maybe complete with a blanket since we don't have a table! Hmmm...that's actually a pretty good idea. We also have some new mums to plant in pots & I am almost certain that smores & a big fire will be included.
I've still yet to catch up on my DVR, it seems like just when I start to get caught up a new week shows up & fills up the DVR again! Oh well, there are certainly worse things in life! ;o)
Yes, today is hump day but it's Thursday for me which means tomorrow is the last day of work for the week! Hubby & I have BIG weekend plans with something fun for both of us. Friday we are leaving fairly early to head up to STL for some shopping, then a nice dinner, & then....PHANTOM OF THE OPERA...duh, duh, duh, duh, duh....;o) It's playing at the Fox & we have fabulous seats!!! I've never seen the theater performance so I can't wait!
In order to get in as much entertainment as possible (and spend lots of money!) we are also able to catch a Cards game on Saturday at noon. It's the next to last game of the season & I'm already looking forward to ball park food. We haven't made it up to a game at Busch Stadium this year and I have to admit that this is probably one of my most favorite things to do with Hubby. We have great seats for this as well so I'm excited to get some good photos right near the field! They have already clinched their playoff spot, but I'm just hoping we still get to see a Pujols homerun!
On a more serious note, there have been several things happen recently that make me soooo thankful for the life God has blessed me with. I am so unworthy of all his blessings & he has given me such an amazing husband, family, work environment, home, etc. Who am I to be worthy of all these things? Thank you God for saving me, pouring out mercy on me each and every day, & giving me an incredible support system. You are an awesome God who amazes me with your presence.
