Baby find.


Loving this cute little mobile from The Land of Nod. What relevance, you may ask, does this have? Well, all...we're having a baby. Some of you may know this, others may not. But it is true. I am 15 weeks and 2 days along today. Woah. It's been quite a crazy ride these past few months. We found out only weeks before I was to start PA school, so it was quite a surprise. I was able to defer school a year, and we're so thankful for that. The process itself was hard emotionally, but really smooth logistically. Although this wasn't in our plan, I'm confident it's in the Lord's plan. And He's never let me down. I know there will continue to be ups and downs through the coming months, but I've been clinging to this scripture for truth:

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,"
declares the LORD. As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."
(Isaiah 55:8-9)

Looking back on the past years, I can't imagine things having gone any other way, and so much of it was not my exact plan. I never knew I would return home to Carbondale, let alone meet my husband here. I never thought I would go back to school, let alone make it into PA school. But it's all been wonderful. So, knowing this and God's nature, I can be excited for things to come. Because it's a pretty exciting thing. Come January, we'll be happy to welcome a new little member to our family. :)

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.
