Today.

Today was a nice day. We woke up late, went out to lunch with my parents, went to the evening service. And Zach and I got to hang out a bit, which is especially nice knowing we will be apart for yet another week starting on Tuesday. This is stinky, not being together. He's going to Switzerland for two days. Only slightly jealous. Even if he will be working the whole time he's there. And then I'm off to Texas on Thursday.

I really enjoyed the sermon tonight...our pastor talked about busyness, and how it can become a disciple killer. SO true! I let busyness and little things rule my life so much at times. I know we're told not to be anxious about anything, yet I find myself struggling to keep that in mind every day. He was talking about how this can be part of busyness...when we're worried we do things to help ease our worries...we work more, we help more, we look to other activities. I surely don't want this to be my life. I want to work hard and honor the Lord with my time, but I don't want to constantly strive in hopes that it will ease my worries. I want to live in true freedom, which is the point of the gospel anyways, isn't it? I'm glad God is gracious and patient with us as we learn. :) With that said, he gave some really great, practical ways to beat down busyness when it's become a bad thing. I believe I will work at putting those into practice!

And, finally, I ran two miles straight for the first time in quite a few years. And it felt darn good. Even if it was inside, and despite the fact I was breathing sooo heavily that I'm sure everyone across the room could hear me.

HAIR.

You guys.  These are by far these worst videos ever made.  Yet I made them.  That's your first piece of information.  Second - why?  Why on earth would you post these silly, low-quality videos? I've had some people ask about my hair recently, specifically the waves/curls I've been doing. And, we've all talked about getting together, but sometimes it just doesn't work out.  So, here you go.  I can't wait to get my first thumbs down on YouTube.  Also, I am completely aware that there are much more important things going on in the world right now. 🙂
The main product that makes the difference for me is my curling iron, The Beachwaver (I use the S1 most of the time, S .75 less often).  I swear I'm not trying to sell it. I just really, really like it.   I realize it is a lot of money for a curling iron, so it's an investment (the 20 % off coupons from Ulta apply to this product when they're available and you can apply for their points system - I got min…

Current clothing faves.

Regular blogging, she said, right?  Whoops.  Seriously...I'm trying.  I swear I'll get more consistent.  Anyways...  
Madewell is killing me right now.  The idea of spending more on maternity clothes that won't fit in three months is too much to stand, but I am still running out of stuff to wear, so I decided to try some things on the in the store recently (Holla - store close to home!) and holy cow, they are winning this season.  Madewell is one of those brands that I find doesn't look as cute on the website or hangers as it does in person.  Here were my favorites...Some outer layers to wear over maternity tanks and tees and then a few other tops that can expand. 

This long cardigan.  I typically don't wear long cardigans because of my height, but this one seems to work - I think it must be the weight.  

Look at this you guys.  You are wearing a sweatshirt.  But you look like you are wearing a structured jacket.  BOOM. 

This shirt is incredible. Works with a belly, bu…

This. Girl. - I love her.
Two is hard sometimes, you know that?  So fun and so taxing - all at the same time.   This little person becoming their own human being, little by little.  Our girl, she is very much her own person.  Stubborn, strong-willed.  But sweet and cuddly.  And SO much fun.   Asking Jesus for help as we aim to shape this little being - allowing her to blossom, yet to obey. In my frustration sometimes I imagine this will of hers standing up to something more substantial in the years to come (not just potty training or foods she dislikes), which gives me some relief - She'll stand strong to her faith being rocked; She'll ward off that idiot of a boy (they'll all be idiots in my opinion, I assume) who thinks he is worthy of her attention.
He has created her this way - our feisty, silly, sweet little girl.  I am so thankful.
