making me happy

learning to knit makes me happy.

Learning to knit. This was my first ever cast-on. It has grown a couple inches since then, but it is also messier. I think I’ve got the knit stitch down, but if I make a mistake (which generally happens when I’m trying to watch the kids at the same time) I have no idea how to fix it. I also don’t know how to carry the yarn yet, so I have to drop the needle every time I wrap it. But I’ll get there.

a new bible study makes me happy.

A new Bible study. There are only a few more of Beth Moore’s that I haven’t done yet! I’ve had my eye on this one for a long time and so far I’m really enjoying it. That is, when I am actually able to DO it – for some reason Liam has been waking up even earlier since the time change. What gives, buddy?

my new ninja blender makes me happy.

We splurged on a blender – the Ninja professional with single serve. I’ve been making smoothies every morning and it is amazing. I also plan to make a lot of sauces in it, and it can be used as a food processor too.

frugal real food meal plans make me happy.

This week I signed up for and started Frugal Real Food Meal Plans. That’s an affiliate link because I am a BELIEVER. I’m going to write all about our transition to real foods once I get some more experience, but so far this week we have had delicious dinners every night that haven’t taken long to put together and I have a plan and staples bought for the entire rest of the month.

more light in the evenings makes me happy.

Finally, these kiddos make me happy. They’ve been in pretty good moods all week long and we’ve enjoyed having a little extra light in the evenings to take walks to the park after dinner. Also helpful for getting my Fitbit steps in!

What’s making you happy this week?

    From Nora:

    Things making me happy…
    * Holding a friend’s newborn and my other best friend having her baby last night (all the baby snuggles!)
    * Daylight when I leave work
    * Pants that didn’t use to fit… fit! Love it when my diet + exercise work pays off
    * It’s already Thursday.
    * Busy weekend ahead: meeting a blog friend, bachelorette party for a dear high school friend and grilling out with friends Sunday night!

    From Alisa Beth:

    Hmmmm… I had way more in that comment before I pressed publish! I don’t know what happened. I mentioned that I lovd Beth Moore and haven’t done that study either. I’ve only ever done her studies in a group setting where we watch the corresponding DVD teachings which I love just about as much as the homework each week. Do you watch the videos on your own through her website (and if so, do you have to pay $5 each time?) or do you just forgo them?

    From Kathleen:

    Triple nap is impressive! You’ve got skillz. ;)

    When I do the studies on my own I just skip the videos. I really wish I could watch them but I haven’t found a way other than buying each one and that’s just too expensive for me! I still get so much out of the homework though.
