Making: lists of things to do here in AZ this holiday season. Pumpkin patches, train rides, Santa!
Cooking: rarely....Since G's been gone, my homemaking juices have run quite dry by 5pm.
Drinking: hot chocolate. Even though it's still stinkin' hot here....but that's never stopped me before. Year round, baby!
Reading: No Doubt About It, by Sheri Dew. It's goo.oo.oood.
Wanting: to be a better me.
Looking: at houses. All day, erry day. Less fun and more stressful than I thought it would be...
Playing: with my girl, Rae Kae. Blocks, stuffed animals, hide and seek, catch...the usual.
Wasting: all my shopping talents with this dang house-fund sucking up all the money.
Eating: lots of fruit and veggies. No prep...just how I like it.
Sewing: a quiet book for Rae. It's coming together rather awfully, if I do say so myself.
Wishing: upon all the stars....something that has always made my soul happy.
Enjoying: this phase of life. Just the three of us, doing our thing. I feel very comfortable with where I'm at in life right now.
Waiting: for the weather to cool off just a teeeeensy bit more so I can pull out some of my favorite fall outfits!
Going: to Zupa's yesterday was the highlight of my week. Everything was free. Everything! It was like a really really really good dream....but in real life.
Liking: this place called Arizona. A lot.
Wondering: how much longer I can last without chopping a few solid inches off my hair. These split ends will be the death of me.
Loving: how Rae's little personality is starting to peek out throughout the day, more and more.
Hoping: Garrett's flight isn't delayed tomorrow.
Marveling: at the love one can feel for their family. It's nearly impossible to explain, but I didn't even know I could love like this. It's the most beautiful thing I've ever experienced.
Needing: my husband next to me when I fall asleep. To protect us from all the bad guys, obviously.
Wearing: my retainer for the first time in years. Ouch. Also.........sexy. Or shall I say, thexy.
Following: all the coverage on this government shut-down....it's made me rather sad. And disappointed. And worried.
Noticing: more than ever that God is intricately involved in the simplest aspects of my day-to-day.
Thinking: about what the future might hold for my little family.
Bookmarking: couches, paint colors, lamps, rugs, art.
Giggling: as I read old letters and notes between Garrett and I.
Pinning: quotes, recipes, and decorating ideas.
Feeling: so much gratitude for this imperfectly perfect life I live.
Seeing: lots of colorful desert sunsets.
Missing: my iphone for the maps and the camera....but not for anything else. We're totally digging this little 'unplugged' experiment over here!
Teaching: Rae the names of all her toys.
Writing: letters to my favorite missionary in the Philippines!
Listening: to the Civil Wars Pandora station. Seriously my favorite.
Watching: Rae follow an ant around at the park today. Pure entertainment.
Trying: to figure out a new, inexpensive, challenging, fun hobby to pick up. Any ideas?
