It's been a while since I linked up with Carissa, so I'm excited to do so today!
One-- We've had numerous snow days lately. And in all honestly, I'm loving them. What's better than an unexpected day off where your hubby is off as well? And let me be honest about something else, I get really tired of hearing people say, "Just wait until June when you're still in school." Really? Hm, I had no idea. (Yep, that's sarcasm.) I'm okay with it...so please quit trying to make these sweet blessings seem not so great. They are just what they seem...perfection!
Two-- We are temporarily attempting to live on one income right now. Justin's job is off and on during the winter, so whatever he makes we're putting straight into savings (or using toward any unexpected expenses each month). How awesome is God that he blesses you tremendously in times where you think it will be so rough? Our budget balanced at $0 today when I re-hashed it all. Nothing extra, not at a negative...zero. That $0 tells me that God is once again supplying exactly what we need. What a precious blessing.
Three-- Am I shallow if I say that The Bachelor makes my Mondays a little brighter? If so, I think I'm okay with that. It's a couple hours of relaxation that I need after a non-stop day of orchestrating the every move and every second of the day for 22 nine and ten year olds.
|not mine but they look just as delicious!|
Four--I made homemade, made-from-scratch, chocolate chip cookies last night. I have no idea what got into me...I'm usually a break-and-bake type of cookie gal. They are scrumptious. Perfection. I'm convinced I may need to own a bakery one day...all my recipe triumphs are sweets. (And I sort of felt like I finally arrived as an adult and wife when I had everything needed to make them in the cupboards.)
Five--I love reading everyones pregnancy updates. Maybe more than I enjoy reading books. Okay, actually, more than I enjoy reading books. Really, I'm living vicariously through y'all. I'm at peace with that...and feel so blessed to learn from all you sweet ladies for when I'm in that season of my own life.
Six--Whew. It's felt good to be random! I have missed this!
