Today -- And I'm Feeling Good

Thanks again to  Nicole  for lots of things, this post idea among them!


Outside my window... this Thursday seems so to wake up. Ok, so was I, so I'll give you that one March, 8. We've had the most gorgeous weather, but showers are headed our way these next couple of days. 

I am certain... that one day the truth will set us free.

I am listening to... my YouTube "favorites" playlist which is currently Jason Mraz's "I Won't Give Up on Us." This song first grabbed me over the normal din of the grocery store, and I had to look it up when I got home. I think it's from the Twilight soundtrack but could be wrong. Regardless, it's beautiful. 

I have am wondering... when a couple of babies will make their arrival! I'm pretty sure their mommas are ready at this point. 

I am loving... playing with the T2i. Now it's time to start working on some editing.

I appreciate.. wifi, a glass of red, picnik, pinterest, and the company of a friend.

From the kitchen... I made homemade mac-n-cheese earlier this week which is a household favorite. I'm the only one who knows what goes into it, and we'll keep it that way. No reason for all to know the insane amount of cheese within. We just make sure to exercise portion control.

I also made a skinny dirty rice dish last night which came strong in the flavor department, but my brown rice didn't cook properly and we had a bit of a texture issue. Hopefully I'll be blogging that recipe soon.

But as for now, we have enough leftovers for tonight, BUT I've got pizza on the mind. Decisions.....

I am grateful... for God bringing me to a place in my life where thieves will not steal my joy. 

I am praying for... sweet friends who not only uplift me but pray for me as well. I know there's power in it. I pray for their families that selflessness may guide hearts.

Sheriff... is becoming a bit more verbal and cracking us up. Nicole told me last night that perhaps W could recite some prayers in his early 2s. What!!! Oh, I believe her. It's just amazing how so quickly these kiddos develop. W is learning to put two different words together, and "get up," "get off," are becoming his favorites. We are working on adding "please." His little tone is too funny. Let's just say that he's a little man that knows what he wants!

He is too funny in giving out the "furrowed brow." We are all the recipients at some point. He seems like such a little thinker.

I am attempting to live the Gospel by... taking ownership when I am wrong but holding fast to the life I believe God is carving out for me. 

A picture thought I am sharing...

Have a great Thursday! The weekend's practically here right?
