coffee date

hey y’all. i feel like having a coffee date with you. sometimes i get pretty lonely. especially in the winter. especially when i need to keep a semi-consistent schedule for the little miss. i am usually mostly a listener too. it’s hard for me to always start the conversation about random things i’m excited about, but if we could get together for coffee, here are a few things we could talk about!

day 17

first of all, i can’t get over the CUTENESS that is my Pioneer Woman mug. um, agree? ok good. 😉

  • You guys, i am totally copying one of my all time favorite bloggers in sharing this but i feel it must be shared. Emily from Jones Design Company recommended this podcast with Sally Llyod Jones and I MUST recommend it to you. that’s what friend’s do right? recommend things that were recommended to us? well, have y’all heard of the Jesus Story Book Bible? {if not, and you have ANY sort of kids in your life, i HIGHLY recommend it…even without kids i recommend! you guys, it makes me cry at story time!} but this is a podcast discussion with the author’s and it’s just delightful.{partly because of her british accent, i’m not going to lie, but that’s not all! lol} i turned it on while i was doing dishes and making lunch one day and it was just so fun! Happy hour with Sally Llyod-Jones THIS!

  • Removable wall paper? WHAT.perfect for my renter friends and sisters! check it out!  WallsNeedLove.com i think i’m going to have to wallpaper something…any suggestions?

  • this blog post  about motherhood made me cry. i know seriously, what these days doesn’t make me cry? i love Gloria for how she brings theology to motherhood. love love love it! her books are so inspiring and beautiful and this blog post just follows right along that path.  Motherhood is a Gift by Gloria Furman: HERE

  • Also, let’s talk about this store called, Terrain: basically the most amazing garden/house store EVER. it’s Anthropologie’s version of a garden store. just IMAGINE.  but it’s also CRAZY ridiculous expensive…only for the rich. us poor people just get to walk around and try not to drool on something that’s too expensive… but it’s inspring. i went there again a week ago before dropping my mother-in-law at the airport. she usually insists we go. i love that.  also, can i have that centerpiece?

Natural Centerpiece Statements | get the look

also, the other day in MOPS we talked about how important it is to get creative time. about how we are created beings, made by a creative God, and it energizes us to be creative (all in different ways of course). such a lovely and dear topic that is close to my heart. literally! i JUST got some painting in the past few days! as soon as i get a few minutes i’m planning to scan the paintings in and really let ya get a good look. tee hee. so fun! have you done anything creative lately? what fills you up and energizes you creatively?

so basically a coffee date is just an excuse to be TOTALLY random in my blog post. thanks for joining me! i hope you are all well and i’d love to hear from you. leave a note and some love!

sweet things for your evening

bouncer bouncer2

first of all, isn’t this little girl learning how to bounce, and LOVING it, just the sweetest?  baby legs

it’s a little random and a little late at night for me to be blogging, but i wanted to share a few “sweet things” that have caught my eye lately. remember, sweet things are just special little random things i’ve found on the internet to share with you:

**

this post speaks to my heart reminding me it’s ok to “just” be a mother. sometimes i feel like the world expects me to be a million other things. so thanks for saying that.

**

this video: hilarious. will farrell and chad smith doing a drum off. husbuddy made me watch it last night while i was up waiting to feed the little miss one more time. haha. WATCH IT now. ha.

headboard side view

the slow process of decorating… in a world of give me everything RIGHT NOW, it’s hard to give myself grace that my house isn’t all put together and organized…RIGHT NOT. lol. i appreciate what Melissa has to say about it here, maybe you will too? {picture from our new headboard project… working on the side tables right now!}

**

this blog post about saving on groceries: Fun Cheap or Free really, this gal just amazes me with her ideas for budgeting! i have NOT gotten up the gumption or the courage to figure out price matching at walmart…but she saved over half of her grocery bill by doing so. yikes. have any of you ever done that?

**

field of wildflowers3

and so funny that i wrote this post about a field of wild flowers last week, and then these two posts came up in my feed today. APPARENTLY i still need to work on this because they both speak on the same thing…trusting God to provide!! Here for John Piper speaking so eloquently on the verses that i talked about last week and here Lemonade makin mama just being real and making me fall in love with her all over again.

**

last of all,  i’m going to join this “book club” to read Pursue the Intentional Life and i’m really excited about it! it’s for the month of june. it looks like a good book and they’ll be talking about it through blogs and videos. you should join me! let me know if you do!
