Outside my window…
It’s the best winter of my life. I hate, hate, hate cold weather. This week we’ve had temperatures in the 60’s and I am in love. I am a much nicer person when I’m warm.
I am thinking…
That I should really start running again. I’ve been like, twice in the past few weeks. Both times have been tough but have felt SO good afterwards that I really need to make it a priority.
¬†I am thankful for…
A happy week. And the generosity and kindness of my friends ūüôā
¬†I am learning…
To use my time better. Hopefully I’ll keep learning that lesson.
¬†I am creating…
My home! Today during naptime I put together a shelf in my room and cleaned off the top of my entertainment center that has become the collection spot for allllll the junk we have. It feels so good to actually have accomplished something!
¬†I am going…
 to Craftcation!  Eeeeeeeee!!!!! (totally kept this answer EXACTLY the same as my friend Ashley because I, too, am freaking out about this. I am SO beyond thankful and blown away that I even have the opportunity to be a part of this adventure. There are no words.
¬†I am hearing…
Dogs barking, tv, Geoff pouring a soda…
¬†Around my house…
It’s generally covered with dog hair and toys. 3 dogs + 2 toddlers = constant havoc.
¬†One of my favorite things…
is Groundhog Day. It’s pretty much my favorite holiday, though I’m a bit ashamed of how much I neglected it this year. Like, I reaaaaalllly love it. When I went away to college, my mom sent me a Groundhog Day card every year. When I was a manager, my staff used to also get me cards (or hand draw them, which was even more amazing.) One of my dreams in life is to go see Phil live the morning he looks for his shadow. This morning, I was watching Barney instead, which is terribly sad. Next year, I will pay Phil all the respect he deserves. (And yes, I know I’m a weirdo…)
A few plans for my week…
Tomorrow is Geoff’s last day at the bank! This weekend we have some shopping to do and some things to get ready for Superbowl! Wings, pizza, and buffalo chicken dip…mmmm.
A picture…
 I LOVE this picture of my Piper girl. She is every bit as sweet as this picture makes her look. Most of the time.

Ok, so, I was uninspired this week. So for my second post, I’m stealing/borrowing this from my bloggy buddy, Ashley.

Outside my window…
¬†There is ice and snow on the ground. Apparently, we’re having a mild winter. I can’t feel my fingers when I go outside though, so that really means nothing to me.
¬†I am thinking…
¬†That I’m really happy I’m not a football fan right now. My hometown team just lost the game in the final seconds because their kicker missed an easy field goal. (Easy, comparatively. I couldn’t kick a football 5 feet, but I also don’t get paid for it, so I feel like I can talk.) If I cared, I’d probably be having a bad night. As it is though, I got chili for dinner and rice krispy treats for dessert, and I care way more about food than football, so my night has been great.
I am thankful for…
¬†My hubby’s new job! He is going to be working at Starbucks with me in 2 weeks and I’m excited for him. And excited for his new hours and getting to see him more!!

I am learning…
That God’s goodness is constant. It doesn’t change. How I see it changes, and how I experience it changes, but his goodness never, ever, ever changes. Life would be easier for me if I always lived that truth.
¬†I am creating…
The fact that I have nothing to say here is really sad. I MUST make time to get back into the fun crafty things I was doing. I also need to create a nice space for my family in our new home. Lots of work to be done.
¬†I am going…
 To bed. A per my usual. Though last week, I stayed up until nearly midnight on several occasions. I was awfully proud of myself.
I am hearing…
 The dryer, and more football.
Around my house…
It is disorganized and cluttered. Two things that I’m working on.
One of my favorite things…
¬†Sam screaming, “SET, WEADY, GOOOOOO!!!!” and Piper having dramatic meltdowns if she wants some sort of electronic device she isn’t allowed to play with. Also,
A few plans for my week…
Couple of playdates! Excited to see 2 friends I haven’t hung out with since before Christmas. Also, this week we will find out if we’ve officially gotten our house rented out. We have an application that has been put in on it, so just waiting for everything to check out….the positive feedback on our house is such a HUGE answer to prayer!!!
