Little Moments - v4

May is almost over!  Hooray! These are my little moments of the past week...

23 - Getting to see my boss's daughter as he brought her into work before her dentist appointment.  She was adopted from Ethiopia and is such an adorable little girl.  We share a love of the color pink.  :) 

24 - Getting sucked into a really good book (Room).

25 - My boss let me go home a couple of hours early so I'd have plenty of time to do a practice exam.  He is a CFA charterholder, so he gets what I am going through, which is really nice.

26 - Getting a thoughtful email from my Grandma (who is 89 - how cool is it that she emails?).

27 - A delicious dinner prepared by my aunt and uncle + 3 games of bananagrams. Oh how I adore that game.  This was a REALLY tough day for me - I cried a river of tears (over a tough practice exam).  My spirits were lifted by spending time with family.

28 - Having some delicious watermelon as an afternoon study break snack.

29 - A spontaneous lunch with a good friend that I hadn't seen in 6+ months.

What were your little moments of the past week?

Man- I have tried to get into Room so many times and I can't! What am I missing?! So many people love it.

Love your Little Moments!

I'm glad you're doing this in the midst of all your CFA stress. It has to be a great way to find the good in things! That's why I love doing it so much. :)

I'm with Stephany, I'm glad you're doing this while under this much stress and pressure!

Let the little things add up to a big win this week!

I also wanted to pass along this:

What a great week, in particular, for you to take a few minutes to think about the good things in your life. I love that you're sticking to this weekly post this month!

I am glad you are remembering to stop and smell the roses every week! Sometimes months can easily go by where we forget! You are almost through this! I am glad that your boss is so accommodating and supportive. I think that has made a huge difference in your studying!

Last week I had a really great trip to Target (I found those "pots" in the dollar aisle) and I made brownies and "cookies" (and ate them all) and I had a few REALLY good runs on a new trail!

Those are great moments to be thankful for this week! :) Mine would have to be seeing my husband, mom and MIL on the side of the course at my half marathon on Sunday. I wasn't expecting to see them at all, and it was a nice surprise!

I love this weekly post of yours! Definitely important to pay attention to the small, good things in your life when you in the middle of such a stressful time!! XO

I just love your little moments posts.... it's so easy to forget the good things that happen every day (even if we're so busy with life that sometimes we don't notice!)

t-minus 4 days!!!

So who did win Bananagrams?

Sounds like you had a really lovely week despite the stress of studying. Another reason I just love these little moments posts, totally reminds you how there is time for things you love even though there is a lot of less-fun things going on.
