hearting : Always this man. He does his best to be good at his job, be a good husband, be a good father, and he is blowing me away at his pursuit of the Lord throughout the week. I may get frustrated with him quite often but he is a constant source of encouragement and I am so happy when he comes home to us. And as of yesterday, we have officially been a couple for 9 years.
reading : for a while now, I have been wanting to find an older woman down here to become my mentor to help guide me through being a mom and a wife and a homemaker, and to point me toward the Lord; well I found two. The sisters in our small group are now meeting with me weekly and we are working through Feminine Appeal by Carolyn Mahaney together. It is based on the teachings found in Titus 2. I appreciate that Carolyn so far is using real, honest examples of her life to get the point across, and that there are good questions in the back for each chapter, to guide our conversations. And some of those questions are homework to talk to our husbands about.
googling (I don't pin) : with a toddler, working in the kitchen is really frustrating. While big scary areas are locked down, others are not, and a lot of the frustration is exacerbated by the fact that my kitchen just really needs to be rearranged. Lately Myles' focal point is the drawer with the baggies and wraps in it... So I am googling all sorts of ways to make that sort of stuff easily accessible in the higher cabinets instead of in the low drawers. I just need to move everything in the kitchen around one day.
eating : I noticed this big candy bar in Aldis the other day... so I bought it. I was pleasantly surprised that inside the giant bar is 4 individually wrapped smaller bars. And it is slightly spicy deliciousness. Myles is rather in love with it too. Yeah I'm a rockstar mom... (major eye roll emoji here).
anticipating : Kyle is working on Valentines day. All day. Not that we would really do anything anyway... But wouldn't you know, I received an email from the church last week letting us know that they are giving parents a night out this Saturday the 7th! We don't have our plans nailed down yet, we usually go to a movie, but I might just have something up my sleeve this time!
