I just read a post written by one of my favorite bloggers, Tara from Between You & Me. I’m pretty sure Tara and I were separated at birth because we love all the same things, we both have a huge heart for adoption, we both live in the south, we both love Friends re-runs, and the list could go on and on. Right about now, Tara is thinking about getting a Pinterest restraining order on me because I re-pin everything she pins. I can’t help it…I love it ALL! Anyway, you need to click over to her sweet blog right HERE
. You need to click around and check out their Family Rules Signs
. Beautiful and so meaningful!
Today, I’m using the highest form of flattery and copying her blog post idea. It’s called right now. I thought it was perfect considering there are so many things I could be doing, but right now I’m procrastinating and wanting to just blog instead. Here it goes…
Watching: Toy Story 2 on Disney. Liz just brought me the remote and wanted me to skip it back to the “Woody’s Roundup” part because they love to sing and dance to that part. I tried explaining I couldn’t because it was on TV and not our DVD, but she just stared at me.
Eating: Chocolate and oats fiber bar. I love them! Eat one every morning.
Drinking: H2O, but seriously thinking about treating myself to a tall, non-fat, half decaf mocha with light whip cream from Starbucks when I go to Target in a few…
Wearing: Oooo. This could make or break me. Pink pj bottoms, a t-shirt and a fleece pull over. And sadly, I’m still wearing my make-up from the Christmas party we went to last night. That wouldn’t be such a big deal except it was a “Tacky” Christmas party. I went all 80′s with green and blue eye shadow. Don’t worry, I’m not going to Target like this. Don’t worry, there will be pictures.
Avoiding: Ha! Do you have time to read a book? I’m avoiding cleaning the house (don’t really know why, but I want it clean before Christmas morning and before we go out of town), laundry, wrapping gifts, last-minute shopping, dirty dishes, blog posts I had planned for this week because I have to edit the pictures….this list could go on and on.
Feeling: Tired. Very tired.
Missing: My family. We didn’t go to our family gift exchange party because Liz was sick with strep. We are going a few days after Christmas, but my sister won’t have her kids those days, so I’m kind-of sad.
Thankful: For our family, our gifts and talents, our home, our kids. And, thankful it will be Christmas soon. I’m so excited about the gifts we’re giving this year.
Weather: 54 degrees. A few days ago it was 70 the other day. Only in the south…
Praying: For my sister, her divorce being final so she can have a peaceful Christmas.
Needing: Hmmm. A job for John Taylor.
Thinking: About all I need to do before tomorrow. About our church’s Christmas Eve service that I’m so excited about. I’ve heard from other’s who went last night that it was AWE-to-the-SOME!
Loving: My husband. He works so hard. He’s been building over time out there in the garage. I love the crosses he’s been building and he’s giving heart.
