Crafting: Handmade cards. I so enjoy hand lettering and creating cards to send to sweet people.
Anticipating: The last day of school! Ah … school lets out in seventeen days and I’m already antsy. Until then, I’m anticipating finishing strong in my last two weeks as well as a few substitute days I’m scheduled to do. I do love working with these young people!
Planning: Visiting family! As soon as school lets out we hope to drive down and enjoy the delights of family. Maybe even visit the river?
Dreaming: Of babies! (It’s that time of year …) 😉 For some reason I’e got baby-fever and I going crazy pinning nursery designs and dreaming up ways I’d house a little one. Follow my Pinterest for darling baby pins!
Smelling: Fresh, clean summer breezes! I am loving this time of year; it isn’t too warm yet and we’re just starting to get our spring thunderstorms.
Eating: Lots of salads and simple (but satisfying!) meals. I’ve begun following Trim Healthy Mama’s meal ideas which is super helpful in planning out the week’s meals. I’ve always been good at meal planning but I struggled in sticking with it. So, rotating between S Meals (Satisfying and full of fats) and E Meals (Energizing with a side of carbs) has been super simple and helpful.
Plus, I’ve been eating a good amount of this homemade chocolate and not feeling guilty about it! 😉
Celebrating: Finding friends! Haha! At the beginning of the school year I met my wonderful friend Amy. I’ve become great friends with her — she is such a joy to me! Earlier this week we got together with our husbands for the first time and had a grand time playing Mario Party late into the night (for us early birds!). 😀
It was so fun and I thank the Lord for giving us a “couple friend.” I’ve been praying God would send a like-minded couple our way to have fun with and grow together with and He answered! 😀
Enjoying: Working out! 😉 I’m only a week in but so far I love this sustainable plan Dalton has helped me get on. I’m aiming to do hard, intensive, short workouts at least once a day. It looks a lot like this:
Monday: 15 Minute Leg and Butt Workout. I’m following this one (warning: tight leggings ahead) 😉
Tuesday: Stretching Day (Since I spend 5 hours on my feet and running around with kids for p.e.)
Wednesday: 2.5 mile walk downtown
Thursday: Stretching Day (Since I’m, once again, on my feet and pooped at the end of my 5 hour library class.)
Friday: Weight Lifting Day focusing on arms and shoulders (I lift until I can’t any more and take a break but come back 2-4 times in the day repeating the process).
Saturday: 2.5 mile walk downtown OR 15 Minute Leg and Butt Workout
Sunday: Stretch Day
Reading: Almost finished with Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss. Lately, I’ve been reading chapters in place of a devotional. It’s so deep!
I’m also enjoying light reading and am working my way through Lori Wicks Tucker Mill Trilogy. 😀
What does your late spring look like? What are you reading? Dreaming about? Anticipating? I would love to know! Leave me a comment below so we can talk about it! 🙂
Love, blessings and coffee,
