list 11 : at my best when

December 2, 2013

For Thanksgiving I had a four-day holiday weekend and lots of plans to be incredibly productive. Unfortunately, on Friday night yet another stomach bug hit me and I was awake all night throwing up, so Saturday all my plans went out the window and I laid in bed all the live-long day. It got me to thinking about the conditions necessary for me to be at my very best, and this is what I came up with. I’ve had lots of sleep… and a cup of coffee It’s morning I get some alone time to recharge The house is clean My family is happy I spend time in prayer I snapped this picture on Sunday  morning when I was NOT…

list 10 : road trip must-haves

November 4, 2013

At the end of this week my husband and I are taking a road trip to the hill country to stay in a private cottage in an adorable town for two whole nights alone. I chose this month’s topic in honor of that! a good audiobook or podcast queue snacks: something salty + sweet stitching (if I’m not driving) water GPS The Instax photo is of our street, and I chose the background patterned paper because it reminded me of tires and wheels. Next month: I’ll be posting on December 2 and if you want the topic in advance, let me know! *** Confused by Book of Lists? Read this post! See all of my lists here.

list 9 : when i need a time out

October 7, 2013

This past weekend was great, but it was also exhausting so that I feel like I need a weekend from the weekend, you know? Anyway, this topic seemed appropriate as I recover from all the intense productivity. :) This actually turned out to be one of my favorite lists in appearance, simple as it is, mostly because my Instax picture actually turned out looking good! I think it’s way easier to get a good shot of something far away than up close. find a cozy corner and do something calming that I love (read, stitch) take a good shower eat something yum have a cup of coffee nap (if possible) phone a friend (or mom) drive somewhere alone Next month:…

list 8 : celebrity crushes

July 1, 2013

Book of Lists is back! And it’s a super easy project, and fun, so I should be able to keep up with it from now on. The hardest part of this was actually coming up with what to put on my list. You guys, I am so lame and hardly have any celebrity crushes! And they are so fun to have, too, so I really need more. Right now I’d say I really only have three. The problem is that I hardly ever watch TV or movies so I don’t get a chance to see them in action. Robert Downey, Jr.  Johnny Depp Joseph Gordon-Levitt I’m still as terrible as ever at taking photos with the Instax. One of these…

list 7 : i’d rather be doing

June 3, 2013

It’s time for Book of Lists, and this month’s topic is “I’d rather be doing.” I imagined myself working, or doing something unpleasant, and thought of all the things I could be doing instead. Some of them are fantasy and some are realistic. relaxing in Hawaii with David cuddling Meredith reading a great book working on a craft or creative project visiting my friends across the country hiking, biking, or some other outdoor activity drinking coffee and browsing blogs I am still pretty terrible at taking Instax pictures (probably because I don’t do research or practice that often) but it’s still fun. In this picture is a map of Kauai, Hawaii where David and I went on our honeymoon. Next…
