This week has been a blur- how is it Wednesday? And the fact that it’s almost May? How?? Here’s what’s up with us:
What are we eating this week?
So far this week we’ve had spaghetti with gluten-free noodles. Knox loved it. Oh wait (remind to tell you a funny story about that later), in fact, he did not love it:
We had a super quick dinner last night of Publix Rotisserie chicken, hash brown potatoes cooked in coconut oil, roasted broccoli and sliced avocado. Tonight I’ll make myself something quick (likely Mexican because I am addicted) since Trevor is at work, and tomorrow I have a dinner with friends at a Greek restaurant, so Trevor will be eating an organic frozen pizza whilst wrestling children. I’m actually working on a food post, so I’ll wait to post pictures to that one!
What am I reminiscing about?
When my babies were babies. They’re five and three, now, and that just seems really wrong to me. Look how squishy they were?! My favorite Brody stage was the crazy curly hair and the gapped front teeth. And Knox had no teeth for an eternity and was so, so cute with his gummy smile.
What I’m loving
My homemade lip balm is still rocking my favorites list right now. It’s tied with my Young Living Ningxia Red- it has really given me a boost in energy and mood since I started it. Anything essential oil-related, I’m pretty much obsessed with right now.
What we’ve been up to
What haven’t we been up to? Mainly working, making sure our children stay alive, fed and don’t hurt themselves, and planting our garden. Speaking of, we have tiny little plants popping up everywhere! Here’s the beginnings of a green bean plant:
What I’m dreading
Waking up tomorrow too early to start the dreaded “routine” of getting the kids ready for school and out the door by 7 a.m. I maintain that life would be better for all people if school didn’t start until 9 a.m.
What I’m working on
I’m teaching a breakout session at a conference in three weeks on social media. So I am preparing that presentation. In addition to working on 1) my job 2) freelance writing 3) Young Living 4) blogging. I make myself tired.
What I’m excited about/looking forward to
Trevor and I are going on vacation ALONE BY OURSELVES JUST THE TWO OF US ALL ALONE next month! Did I mention that we’re going by ourselves?? Bliss and lots of sleep will be mine! I am positive that we will miss our kids, but I am also positive that we need this time away as married people pretty badly. Looking so forward to a week at the beach with lots of relaxation while the boys have a great time with Gigi and Papa G!
What I’m watching/reading
So many things. I’m neck-deep in four books at once right now BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT I DO TO TORTURE MYSELF. Why can I not just read one, finish it, then start another?
I’m reading all of these right now:
What I’m doing this weekend
On Fridays, I work a half day, so I generally go the grocery store right after work, then Trevor will be working on the backyard fence with his dad that afternoon. Maybe we’ll have a date night once the kids go to bed on Friday and watch a movie and eat gelato together- those are the kinds of dates we have nowadays! Trevor is working on Saturday, so that day will be spent praying for patience and chasing two little boys around the house, but Sunday, we always go to church and Sunday School in the morning, and then we have a Night of Praise that night that I cannot wait to attend.
