Fine Friday's Five Gratefuls

I love going to Kristin's house for prenatals. She lives close to Gateway
and that usually means a little break for me, time to browse around. I got sooo LUCKY today!
I found this beautiful book.
~ Thayu nyumba ~
Peace, my people.

I love this little snack stash I picked up at Whole Foods.
A black licorice candy bar,
some crackers that I bought simply for the sweet packaging
and these new IZZE esque drinks.
I had to give up my fave, the regular IZZEs
but these 15 carb bevs are pretty and tasty enough.

At long last, I own "the shirt of my dreams".
Thank you Shari and Matt for making it possible.
My girls were really getting tired of hearing me talk about it,
checking it out every time we went shopping
and calling them to see if I should get it or not.
Today I brought it home!
OK, I know this isn't SeaTown,
definitely not Pike's,
but if I closed my eyes and worked my imagination,
this guy was Marvin Gaye.
His "Let's Get It On" was really good.
I gave him a generous contribution,
we made eye contact, I waved, smiled and moved happily on.
Briana and I waited it out, finally went to Dancing Cranes on the day of the 40% off sale.
We got the batiks we'd had our eyes on. I love mine.
I was drawn to this one because of the babies
wrapped on their mama's backs and hips.

One light, one sun
One world turning
One dream, one song
One love, one heart
One hope, one joy

Hopefully, I'll be in this picture by October 2010.
I'm getting impatient.
