Outside my window...trees with new buds.
I am thinking...that I need to take something out of the freezer for dinner - right now.
I am thankful for...naptime.
From the kitchen...dishes are clean, but need putting away.
I am wearing...a thermal from Old Navy and pajama pants.
I am creating...a crocheted blanket that I will be done with this week.
I am going...to coffee tonight with a friend and looking forward to it.
I am reading...The Shack and think its a really interesting take on the Trinity.
I am hoping...for a placement soon.
I am hearing...Emma working on penmanship and Brody attempting to nap.
Around the house...things need some straightening.
One of my favorite things...is naptime (haha...I have a case of the Monday's).
A few plans for the rest of the week: Bible study, getting my hair done (finally), picking up my glasses (!), game night with some friends on Friday.
Here is a picture that I'm sharing: My baby is using a sippy cup (this pic was taken about 2 weeks ago)!

I am thinking...that the day flew by.
I am thankful for...the wintery day and the fire in the fireplace.
From the kitchen...the smells of the pork roast I made for dinner.
I am wearing...my Newport, RI hoodie and cozy pants.
I am creating...as little chaos as possible.
I am going...to watch Heroes tonight and I'm looking forward to it.
I am reading...Created still, but got The Shack for V-Day and plan to start it tomorrow.
I am hoping...and praying that Mark gets the job that he wants.
I am hearing...Mark and Emma play the sentence game (a game where Mark writes a sentence out on the white board and Emma reads it. If she gets them all right, she gets a prize).
Around the house...everything is picked up cozy.
One of my favorite things...is watching Emma try to play basketball.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Bible study, Bro's Dr. appt., me and Em have eye appts., hopefully get my hair did, cause it NEEDS it, my BDAY on the 20th!!!
Here is a picture that I'm sharing: the Faja das Almas. I haven't been there in 8 years and I'm dying to go back. My grandparent's live there 6+ months a year.

Earlier in the week I stumbled across this blog and my heart has ached ever since. Little Cora Paige was diagnosed with cancer a little over 3 weeks ago and went to be with Jesus this past weekend.

In my (typical) impatience I called the placement coordinator about 10 minutes ago because, HELLO, why have we not received that call yet?!

For today...Monday, February 9, 2009
Outside my window...a (rare) raining day!!! I thoroughly enjoy rainy days!
I am thinking...about when we will get the call for a placement.
I am thankful for...I know I've said it before: My husband. I am so, so thankful to be married to such a wonderful person.
From the kitchen...DISHES!! I should be doing that instead of this.
I am wearing...jeans and a purple long-sleeved Dave Matthew's Band shirt that I got at his concert last year.
I am creating...a reader! My Emma is loving to read (just like her Mom and Dad) and I am so proud of her.
I am going...to do CrossFit today! I have lost a couple more pounds (to my surprise) and will blog about that later.
I am reading...Created to be His Help Meet.
I am hoping...that I have a very productive week. And that I don't get sick. Its going around.
I am hearing...Emma doing school work, Brody just waking up from his nap.
Around the house...again, those darn dishes. And some laundry, too.
One of my favorite things...eating out, which I get to do this week since Valentines Day is approaching!!
A few plans for the rest of the week: Bible study, possibly selling Mark's civic and buying a van, a date with my man.
Here is a picture that I'm sharing: We order this HUGE pizza for 4 adults and 1 child. It was awesome!
