7 quick takes friday!

1.
So...Justin hurt his ankle on Monday night playing basketball. Thankfully, we already had a set of crutches in the attic from previous incidents like this. Let's face it - when we started dating, he was on crutches...so I signed up for these little accidents!! It seems to be healing well, so that's good.
2.
Elijah slept through the night (8-9 hours) from Saturday night to Wednesday night!!! Last night he only made it to 5 am, but I'm still so thankful! My precious 10 week old is doing pretty good. He likes to sleep like his mom and dad!
3.
I feel like I left my job to stay at home with my son and do laundry. Was there this much laundry when I was working?? I know I've added the cloth diapers to the load, but those seem so easy compared to everything else! Whew!...now if I could just keep up with the ironing.
4.
My mom came and stayed with Elijah for about 5 hours yesterday while I was at a church event. I'm so thankful that she was able to come up and she was great (of course) with Elijah. Stay tuned for a hilariously cute video from her visit that I'll post tomorrow.
5.
One of my best friends from college, Sarah, is coming to visit today!! I can't wait...she hasn't seen Elijah yet and I'm excited for her to meet him. She's driving up from Georgia as I type this! Yay Sarah!!
6.
I'm excited to be playing some "background music" tomorrow for a Mother/Daughter tea hosted by the Arts Council in Elkin. I don't get to play piano a lot lately, so I'm excited for the opportunity (even though I have a lot to still prepare tonight) and hopefully it will mean some good contacts for piano students in the Fall!
7.
I'm planning to organize a community yard sale for May 16th. Be in prayer for this because I'm kind of using this as a way to meet all of our new neighbors. God has given me a burden for our neighborhood and gave me this idea as a way to jumpstart relationships with those around us. I hope lots of neighbors will be excited about this.
Have a great Friday!!
