thirty-three

February 5, 2015

Today is my birthday! I am 33. I love the number 3 so I just know this is going to be a good year. And Meredith is excited because she thinks I’m the same age as her. ;) I wanted to do a fun post to commemorate the day. There isn’t anything special going on because I have to work and am going to Bible study tonight; and in fact, it was a terrible morning, the worst in recent memory and I already cried once (ah parenthood!), but I am trying to move past that. Last weekend we went out to eat at Cheesecake Factory with my family, my work had a birthday lunch for me yesterday with cake, and…

february 2015 goals

February 3, 2015

Happy February! I know this is lots of people’s least favorite month because it’s winter with no sign of spring, but thankfully it is my birthday month so I’ve always had a sweet spot for it. :) Here are my goals! Nagging task: replace dead light bulbs This is pretty straightforward, but it’s one of those things that I tend to put off and then when we finally get around to doing it, it makes such a huge difference. Anyway, we’ve got a bunch of dead bulbs right now. Purchase: iPhone tripod I wanted to make my purchase this month something fun, but also that is practical and has been on my wish list for a long time. Since my phone…

what i read : january 2015

February 2, 2015

I’m patting myself on the back over here for all the reading I did this month! Not only did I finish five books (which is a lot for me lately) but they were all good ones. The Magicians by Lev Grossman : I was so into this. One big criticism I had read that had kept others from enjoying it was that they didn’t like the main character. I liked him fine, though, despite some of the awful things he did. I could also see him changing and redeeming himself by the end which makes me excited to see where the story goes. I just love a good fantasy. (4 stars) Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng : I expected this to be a…

LIGHT : january

January 30, 2015

Necklace from this Etsy shop and I love it. I am one month into the year of living with the word “light,” and I wanted to share a bit about how this process is going for me. In our prompts this month (for the class run by Ali Edwards) we set intentions and there were some suggested categories to focus on, so that’s how I’m going to structure these update posts. spiritual what’s been going well : so far I have been keeping up with my scripture memory challenge (one verse every other week), volunteering to help out at church, being involved in our life group and my own personal Bible study. still weighing on me : here’s the thing. Being…

week in the life 2014 : tuesday in the album

January 28, 2015

Hi there! Just want to quickly share my layouts for Tuesday of the week in the life album I have in progress. This one came together faster than Monday since I knew what I was going for. I’m starting every day with a full page photo with date stamped on the gold foil labels. I also plan to do a rundown of my meals on this narrow 3×8 page for each day. On the back of this one I wrote out a few Meredith quotes. The right side is some morning photos. The below layout encompasses the bulk of my day. Work (with pumping) and running on the treadmill after. It’s funny because I really can’t document much of what…
