I love reading about what’s currently going on in the lives of my favorite bloggers. I’ve noticed a fun, new trend (although I suppose it isn’t that new) that I’d like to jump in on. My friend Charis from This Journey of Grace inspired this post — who knows! Maybe I’ll keep at it!
designing – I’ve been playing around with Picmonkey trying to design an intro I just love … I spotted a few spelling errors (gasp!) but am having a hard time figuring out the new widths I need.
I’ve also been making several handmade cards … a few for the upcoming giveaway and a few for some special friends who will be marrying soon!
enjoying – Sunshine and rain! We’ve been having some hot, humid days lately (eeeek) but the changing weather has been lovely.
Oh, I’m also enjoying a good Saturday at home where I had a nice, long phone call with my mom and enjoyed some classics like Emma and Little Women. Lazy Saturdays are very enjoyable. 😉
ordering – Some fun things! A few weeks ago I cleaned several apartments and now we’re having a lot of fun with the extra cash. I ordered a few books (Naturally Healthy Pregnancy by Shonda Parker and Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers) as well as a few fun food items (like roasted chicory root, dandelion root and loose-leaf tea).
My favorite purchase? A beginner set of essential oils by Fabulous Frannie (I may be prejudice 😉 I’ve been a skeptic of essential oils for a long time but have decided to give a few select ones a try. Fabulous Frannie’s products received excellent reviews and had very reasonable prices compared to the more famous brands. Can’t wait for the orders to come in!
celebrating – Several birthdays! My daddy’s, momma’s and sister’s birthdays (along with several cousins) had birthdays this last month. We’ve had a lot of fun treasuring these special people this last month.
tasting – Lots of homebrewed peach tea! I love knowing that mixing boiled water with steeped tea can produce a yummy, healthy drink that can help ward off my Dr. Pepper addiction. 😉
dreaming – I’ve been doing a lot of home/baby dreaming as of late. After spending a few weeks away from home I’ve been relishing being back in my own place, following my routine and going to sleep next to my beloved in our own bed. Needless to say, I’ve got a lot of crafty/homemaking ideas floating around.
As far as babies go I am more content then ever as I await God’s timing and work. I’ve also got the drive to prepare my body for the possibility and so I’m doing a lot of reading and making a few adjustments to provide a more healthy place for a little one. 🙂
