Birthday Countdown: Day Four

Emilee Turner asked: "What is your favorite time of day, and why?"

The time of day that I look forward to the most is the few hours after my kids go to bed, before I go to bed. We have our family devotion and prayer time together (which is just a highlight of the day, kids are the cutest things during times like that!) and we put them to bed (usually between 7:30 and 8pm)...they are just so sweet. The house is all quiet... and Corey and I just can literally "chill out." Sometimes this is when I go do my extended coupon shopping night out...sometimes we watch "The Office" or a movie together... I lay in the bed and read a book....take a long bath... Many times you will find me mixing up some kind of baked treat to enjoy, or pouring a bowl of sweet cereal. It's just the best time of the day for me because I can feel like I have accomplished something for the day and now enjoy some quiet time. It's the thing I miss when we are out too long and get home super late. It isn't that I am going to bed that much later, but that I missed my "just me and Corey" time.

Thanks for that great question Emilee!

Tomorrow I will answer Hannah's question: "What is your favorite Girl Scout cookie?"

(Sorry Chris, I am saving your question for another day...but I have a good reason :)

Sounds relaxing! This is a fun little countdown to your birthday! (also, I don't think I realized we were the same age! I will turn 28 in July!)

I agree, that is a nice time of day at our house too. But I think my favorite time of day is around 9 am. The sun is just so nice and bright and cheerful, but not too hot yet. Breakfast has been had, and perhaps a little "after breakfast chocolate". You still have the whole day to look forward to - activities to plan, books to read, playtime to participate in. My E-mail hasn't been checked yet, so I can still hope that people have commented on my blog, or that Andy has written.
Yep - 9 am, with an east facing window wins for me.
