How’s this for a random blog post? (Idea stolen from here).
Reading: A few things - The Gospel Centered Woman (I love this!), The Explosive Child (enough said), Charlie & the Chocolate Factory (The boys are loving this and it makes me soooo happy)
Searching for online: Christmas decorations (mostly on Pinterest). I unpacked my stuff this year and was underwhelmed. In reality, I think I’m going to have to pick up some stuff after the holidays on clearance so I don’t find myself in this spot again next year.
Eating: Poorly. I was great in September and October. I don’t know what happened. January is a good time to start this.
Watching: My favorite shows this fall has by far been The Good Wife (even over my beloved Parenthood) and Parks & Recreation. I really don’t think enough people are watching TGW. D and I love it and this season has not disappointed me a bit. And P&R just keeps getting better and better each season. I had no hope for that show when it started but I think it is amazing now. Oooo and The Sing-Off. The Sing-Off just makes me happy!
Wearing: The Sweetheart Skinny Jeans in Black. I cannot believe I like a pair of Old Navy jeans this much but they are a perfect fit.
Wishing: I didn’t have to spend so much time cleaning my kitchen. Not a real problem, I know.
Drinking: Trader Joe’s Wake Up Blend made with my Aeropress
Cooking: We’re in eat down mode. Money seems to be flying out the window. I’m not into grocery shopping right now. So, we’re eating what is currently in the pantry and fridge.
Making: Rainbow Loom bracelets. A is obsessed with this thing and, I must admit, it is strangely addictive. I’m mostly starting and finishing bracelets that he is making for friends.
Smiling: At my funny kids. Best line recently from A: “I never see my butt.” Said with genuine disappointment
Hoping: To get some time to pull together a special gift we are planning for the boys.
Enjoying: The fact that the Spartans are headed to the Rose Bowl and that, in a house of Go Blue fans, my team is victorious.
Doing: Advent readings with the kids from The Jesus Storybook Bible. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of this book.
Planning: Mostly just in my mind right now, but a going-away party for friends moving out of state
Obsessing: Aztec print. I can’t get enough of it. Really wishing I would have snagged this sweater before it disappeared.
