loving: a clean home. Our home is very rarely messy but a quiet evening with the lamps low, the Olympics, and a cup of coffee, heavens sake, perfect.
reading: A Love of Her Own by Maggie Brendan. I actually just finished it. It’s the last in Maggie’s series. I would choose these horrifically cheesy, Christian, horse, romance novels over Fifty Shades of Gray any day (even though Dillon teases me for it!)
waiting for: my sweet husband to come home. He’s helping his brother move, which is nice, but I sure would love him to be home with me.
excited about: our first dinner party. It will hopefully be in the middle of September and I can’t wait to plan it. The theme Back to School, so lot’s of apples, BBQ, and chalkboards.
missing: every one of these girls. Today is also my sister’s (second from the left) birthday, along with her heart melting son’s. Karilee turns a ripe of age of Still Gorgeous and Kaiden turns 4. Happy Birthday!
trying to: read my Bible more. be active in the word, not just monotonously living.
enjoying: the Olympics. I so badly wish I could be watching them with my mama, as I always did growing up. Gymnastics isn’t the same without her.
wearing: gray pajamas shorts and a navy shirt, it is definitely cozy time in my home right now. Although today I whipped out my trusty brown cowboy boots, which were filthy from the Flagstaff mountains.
planning: I am very lazily planning our meal plan this week. I outline all of our meals and lunches to save us from making unnecessary purchases at the store. I typically plan it based on the weekly ad and try to use one or two ingredients for multiple meals.
learning: how to be a wife. No matter how much preparation we did, it’s a whole different ball game. I’m learning how to communicate, share a sink in the morning when we’re both late for work, how to love Dillon as his wife, so on and so forth.
singing: Home by Phillip Phillips. I have to admit, I’ve listened to it 628 times today.
needing: a good facial or at the very least, a facial mask. Any recommendations?
wishing: dinner was made for me. then served to me right where I sit. Goodness, I am lazy.
praying for: guidance. community within our church. understanding. gratefulness.
dreaming of: someday owning a house in a different state, filled with children’s laughter. A home like this:
Now, back to watch the Olympics!
Have a blessed week!
