For Today....

I am...

thinking... that I should get some work done this morning so that Luke and I can go get our Christmas tree this afternoon.

reading... "Sacred Marriage" and learning that marriage is not about making me happy, but about making me holy.

going... to Starbucks for a peppermint mocha, then Lowes to buy our Christmas tree. We've bought our tree from Lowes for the past 3 years and they definitely have the biggest trees for the best prices.

making... chili for dinner.

hoping... that I survive Luke's trip to Germany this week. I HATE when he travels out of the country and I am stuck here. It makes me nauseous thinking about not being able to get in touch with him if I need to.

talking... to Rage :) He is the only one up right now.

remembering... what Christmas is really all about. We are trying to be more purposeful this year on focusing on the true meaning of Christmas.

texting... The world! texting has definitely become one of my main forms of communication.

thankful... for my wonderful husband who spent 6 hours last night putting Christmas lights on our house, even though we don't have kids and he says that no one will ever see the lights.

looking forward to... Christmas with my family. I miss my sisters.

listening to... A Baby Story on TLC. We got Verizon Fios last Tuesday and thus far we are loving it.

Outside my window... The sun is shining! Oh how I LOVE Florida!!

Pictures to prove it... Here is my view from the couch that I am currently perched on :) Christmas decor is beginning to go up, and TLC is on the TV.

Yay for new posts!!! And double yay for one of my favorite kinds of posts. :) I've become a bad blogger of late... my brain is on overload I think.

I have SO been wanting chili lately... even though I made some just a couple of weeks ago. Sacred Marriage has become one of my all time favorite reads. I'm looking forward to seeing your Christmas lights so tell LG that at least ONE person will be appreciating them! I am SO looking forward to FL sun - I closed my curtains at 4pm today because the sun was setting and I didn't want to see it. I had forgotten that LG was going to be in Germany. I'm going to Dresden, Germany this Saturday to their Christmas markets - only 2 hours away by train. I hope he has a great time - and I'm sure you'll be fine in FL. Just remember to breathe... and to post pictures of your amazing Christmas tree!

I am...

thinking... that Elmo and Super-Grover together drive me insane!

reading... Christ in the Carols devotlional every morning when I pee :)

going... to turn off the TV when Sesame Street is over in 15 minutes

making... absolutely no progress on my day.

hoping... that I can figure out something for dinner that doesn't have Turkey in it

talking... to Cadence about how silly Elmo is.

remembering... Teddy and the fact that he had blue eyes and occasionally missed the bench if we moved it over on the patio

texting... I don't text

thankful... that we started our Advent family devotions last night and that Chris did such a good job reminding us that God always keeps His promises

looking forward to... Christmas with my family. I miss my sisters. - ME TOO!

listening to... sesame street and cadence saying her tummy hurts

Outside my window... The sun is shining and there is frost on the roofs. I love it!
