loving: playing with my sweet boy! He is totally into chase and hide & seek. I love love love to hear him laugh and giggle as he crawls after me.

reading: The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom. And by reading, I mean speed reading before my book club meeting tomorrow night! Eeek! I'm so mad at myself for not reading a single book yet this year. My 2012 Book List just sits over on the side bar all sad and lonely. Someday, book list, someday you'll be remembered.

waiting for: my tax refund. Not that I'm doing anything luxurious with it {hi savings account!} but there's just something about waiting to get the money that makes me excited and impatient. Am I alone here?

excited about: a date night with my hubby this weekend! It's been way too long since we've been able to hang out just the two of us! Many thanks to Gramma and Papa for babysitting our little man.

wearing: this LOFT scarf that I got for my birthday last week. It may not seem like much to you guys, but for this neutral wearing girl, it's waaaaay out of my comfort zone. But its just so cute! And a great piece to jazz up a simple top with jeans. Thanks to my brother and sister-in-law for this sweet gift!

using: my crockpot more and more. It makes meals so much easier

planning: Jake's first birthday party! You guys, I can't believe it. And I'm so so so excited! More to come on this as we get closer.

singing: the theme song to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. The second Mickey comes on the screen Jake throws his hands up and yells. It's so cute. We rewind to watch it over and over again.

needing: a vacation. I'd even take a weekend getaway at this point. This place looks lovely.

learning: to be still. Waiting on God has never been my forte. I'm a take-charge-never-let-the-dust-settle type of gal. When my life is paused in a single place, I get restless, frustrated, even desperate at times to make something happen. But I'm learning to be still. To embrace this place that He has me.

enjoying: season three of Downton Abbey. I adore so so many things about this show! And I will come undone if they do something terrible during the season finale next week. Sometimes people think watching Downtown Abbey makes me snobby. Then I tell them that I also love Catfish and they think I'm normal again.

working on: cleaning out my closet. Clothes to donate, clothes to for a yard sale. It's just that time again!

listening to: lots of fun new music. This is the most played on my list right now:

doing: way too much. I've recently been temporarily covering a few things at my old job while a girl is out on maternity leave. With all of the other things I have going on, its been a lot. I'll be glad for some lazy days when its all over.

dreaming of: spring! Days at the park, walks on the trails, wandering through the outside shops. I can't wait to soak up that happy, warm sun! 

wishing: time would slow down. Jake is growing up so fast and this momma can't take it.


  1. His hair!!!! So cute!!!!

    I'm thinking of starting Downton Abbey. Everyone has been posting about it. I think I'm missing out.

  2. YES!! Start watching it, Heidi! Last I checked, Redbox had Season One.
