life lately

If you were a fly on the wall around
our place lately, here's what you'd see...

1.  Dorky & cute poses for the self-timer. 
2.  Delish apple pork chops. (made by the hubs with love)
3.  Pink champagne for Valentines.
4.  Multi-tasking. (posing + tooth-brushing, duh)

silliness...and a birthday

This sly sheep cracks me up, so I figured
I would share the joy.  (and get that
dang song stuck in your head too!)

And...on a totally unrelated note, 
I want to wish my lovely Momma 
a very happy birthday!   I love you, 
and am so grateful for the amazing
 lady you are and have challenged 
your daughters to be!

We had one of those quiet, blissfully sleepy weekends.

You know the type - full of movies and naps.  
Leave the house only when necessary. 
Plenty of cuddling on the couch.  Lots of 
laundry and catching up on little 
household jobs.  Stay in pjs as long
as you'd like.  Rest.  Time together.
Happiness.  :)

happy list

1. Sunshine.
 There's nothing like a bright,
sunny skies to lift my spirits! 

2.  Interesting art.
Loving this clever and beautiful
take on postage stamps.

3.  Morning gym dates.
Good conversation and company
makes for a good start to the day.
(Oh, and the actual working
out part isn't bad either...)

4.  Good music.
I switched out cds in my car
this morning, and re-discovered
this gem of a song.  Wonderful.

5.  Vacation countdown.
We leave for warmer places in about
two weeks, and we're currently
obsessing about packing and
other fun things.  :)

busy, continued.

Life has been so busy lately around these 
parts.  I feel like someone hit the fast-forward
button and every day is just blurring by, 
which is total craziness.  It's been a struggle
to just take every day on its own without
being completely overwhelmed, but
God has been so faithful to provide the
peace and rest I need.  Psalm 16 has been
a huge source of joy & strength lately - 
go check it out if you could use some too.

night with some most lovely peoples!
