taking stock


Amazed at: The fact that Kate fell asleep on me totally unprompted (see above photo) and then transferred to her crib without a hitch! Mom win. (Also, I may or may not have shed a few tears of cuteness/baby overload because it was so adorable. Judge away if ye will.)

Eating: David brought me a Chick-Fil-A spicy chicken sandwich for lunch because he knew I was having a bad day...delicious

Listening to: Justin Bieber's new single. Ashamed and proud at the same time because that kid is on a comeback, I swear!

Wearing: Caitlin's old popover, leggings, tshirt. Aka the winter momiform. Hey, my philosophy is don't put real pants on unless you have to!

Cooking: Probably taco salad for dinner but I'm just remembering I don't think we have any ground beef in the freezer soooooo that might not pan out.

Reading: Nothing because my brain is still reeling from The Martian. My uncle, who's a parish priest in small-town NE, and I had a conversation last night at dinner about how much we enjoyed it. (There is language, though, a fair amount of it! But it's worth it, I think.)

Drooling over: This Patagonia popover. All the colors, please! I'm giving myself non-food rewards for weight loss goals and I think it's definitely going to make the list.

Realizing: This weekend is November? Which means October is over?? Where...where did the time go?

Working on: My saint peg dolls! David's been a big help already and I'm stoked to see how they come out. But trust me, my expectations are v v v low.

Sewing: Nothing. I started on a quilt over a month ago and got through the cutting stage but haven't picked it up again since. I'm also itching to start a new embroidery project but I've now given one to every one of my friends soooo if you have an embroidery saying or project you'd like that I can gift you, hit me up.

Watching: TV-wise, I'm in a bit of a slump. I finished Parks & Rec whilst bawling my eyes out yesterday over lunch, and now I'm just depressed that it's over. David and I re-started watching Doctor Who from Season 1 for some flashback entertainment, and holy cow bad production value, Batman! It's so bad but soooo good. I miss Rose. Also disappointed that Parenthood's 6th season is STILL not on Netflix. I got my hopes up for nothing!

Excited for: This year's BIS Advent Journal! I'm seriously stoked for it - it's written by one of my all-time best celebrity crushes, Audrey Assad. Excuse me while I drool for a bit.

  1. Yes pants are horrible, in fact I was just thinking that since I have worn real pants for the whole day (so far) I really ought to receive a prize of some kind..
    I made tacos one night this week with ground turkey because we didn't have beef and it actually turned out really good, something I wool probably be repeating.
    And I CANT WAIT for my saint dolls to get here! Although the other day I scared myself thinking maybe I ordered the girl ones when I should be making a boy saint.... I should probably go check that
