Life lately

It has been a while since I bored you with random thoughts and pictures of our every move.  So here you go


Jeremy likes to make fun of me because I am usually wearing two seasons at a time.  Like in the above picture, summer and winter.  It's because in my head I have this idea of how much skin can be showing for me to feel comfortable.  If I am wearing shorts, I want at least a 3/4 sleeve top.  If I am wearing pants then I feel a little more comfortable going sleeveless.  Weird, yes, but I am nothing if not crazy.

I have had these sandals for 3 summers now.  I love them and wear them several times a week.   Sadly they are starting to show their $16 price tag and I need to replace them but I am having the hardest time finding a new pair.  Right now I am leaning toward a pair of Saltwater Sandals but I buy them for the girls so I am having a hard time doing it for myself.

I have been trying to share my faith a little more.  It is not something I am very vocal about mostly because I have been hurt by people's idea of "faith" and I never want to do that to someone else.  But lately I feel it is something God wants me to do, so even though I am majorly ill equipped and a huge sinner, I am sharing. Because I know I can be a fumbling idiot but if God wants to use me He will.   I am trying to be more aware of how I act as well and the things that come out of my mouth because I don't want my words to say one thing and my actions to say another.  I want to be more encouraging to others, I am trying not to gossip so that people wont wonder if I talk behind their back as well.   It has been a lesson, one I am struggling with everyday but thankfully God holds my hand through it all and picks me up when I stumble and fall.

Eldon was helping me, (read tasting), make the whipped cream for Brighton's strawberry shortcake.   Note, off brand heavy whipping cream sucks and does not whip well at all.

 That didn't take long.  Did I mention Amazon accidentally sent us a twin doll stroller instead of the single I ordered?  I was too lazy to ship it back.

 I hate putting her down to do things like make the other 3 lunch or put them to bed.  If it was up to me, I would sit and stare at her all day long.

 I highly recommend this book.  I am half way through and I am loving it.

Right now I am currently reading the book about cleaning up youth entitlement along with a book about finding God's goodness in the bitter things,  a book on homeschooling, and I just picked up the 2 books pictured above at the library today because my holds came in.   I think this is the most books I have ever read at once.  And there is no fiction, MUST FIX THIS.

 I made this braid in my hair this morning because I am in desperate need of a cut, Bristol asked if I could give her a matching one.

 Then she spent the rest of the day trying to be like me.  Except, I wouldn't wear a dress unless forced too.
I got sick of my boring meal plan for the week and made a pretty one.

Now I am off to do a little more reading.
