Amazing Kindness

Sometimes people do things that are so thoughtful and kind that it just blows my mind.

I’ve been the blessed recipient of kindness like this and I’m so very thankful.

After a post of mine a few months ago where I was talking about my Pink Teddy, the wonderful, sweet and talented Lisa at blondiesBEARista made for me the most adorable gift and then made the gift a big sister too!


Are they not the most precious things you’ve ever seen???

I mentioned that as much as I love teddies, I’d never received one that was homemade.

Well, Lisa took care of that! And I got TWO!


Look at their adorable and happy faces. their little scarves and bonnets. I just wanna eat ’em up!

I told Lisa that they’ll be drool colored within a year, but that’ll just go to show how much love they’ll be getting.

Lisa, dear friend, you made my heart melt with your kindness and love. That you would do something so special and above-and-beyond for me leaves me almost without words (and we all know how hard that is to accomplish!). Every time I look at them it just fills me with joy. To know you would take the time (and the money as I’m sure the materials and shipping weren’t cheap) to do something so precious means more to me than I could ever fully articulate.

Just know, sweet girl, that these two teddies will receive tons of love and always be looked upon with a smile and an overflowing heart.

Thank you, so very much, for giving me two new little buddies and making me feel loved. You are truly one of a kind.

Love is all about the ham sammich!

Happy almost 4th of July for my lovely American friends! I’m going to try and get at least 50 hours of sleep the next 4 days. That’s my goal and I’m sticking to it!

As for love and ham sammiches, I just had to share this with you.

The hubby, bless his heart, is helping me on my “watch what I eat but not really a diet” diet. Which means I don’t want to eat anything made with a quart of heavy whipping cream, 2 sticks of butter and a cup of oil. Not cooking that kind of food is hard for him, but I begged him to help a girl out.

So, last night I asked him to make me his Grant Sammich without bread. I know, I know…that does not qualify as a sandwich, but in my brain it does.

This is what he brought me:

Ham Sammich Love

How freaking cute is that!!??? That, my friends, is true love. 🙂

Oh, and if you are watching what you eat and wanna make it, it’s just:

  1. 2 slices of super thin deli ham
  2. 1/2 a roma tomato diced finely
  3. A little bit of diced onion
  4. A tiny splat of Olive Oil mayo (very low fat and calorie for mayo)
  5. A medium splat of mustard
  6. 1/2 a black olive, sliced, for decoration
  7. Garnish (celery)

In total it’s about 65 calories and 2 grams of fat. Perfect little treat to satisfy the nibbles.

Have a great weekend!! 🙂 XOXOXO
