What A Week

I had such high hopes of getting to post this week.

About things such as:

* Valentine's Day
* Fasting
* Why the word, "obedience," makes me want to punch things, yet actual obedience (to God, that is) always plays out well 
* Emotional Intelligence
* Why I love my husband so much
* Beginning a list of Pregnant Fears, from the ridiculous ("What if I go bald because my hair keeps shedding?") to the more serious ("Really!? I'm already worried about how good of a mother I am and he's not even here yet.") 
* The Demon Dog that lives on our street and/or the pack of feral cats that lives around our house and how I want one to take out the other. 

Unfortunately both my husband and I had an intense work week that left little time for anything outside of basic life management skills... like showering. 

However, today was a much needed and lovely day off. The kind of day that finally allowed me to do laundry, and take a long walk with Husband, and cook a decent dinner, and pluck my eyebrows.

I still want to post about a few of the topics above and plan to this week, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, I'd love to hear how your week was (the crazy or not-so-crazy parts of it), and I'll leave you with a picture of an early birthday gift from my amazing in-laws:

I've been wanting a pair of maroon converse for quite some time. I'M GOING TO BE SUCH A COOL MOM IT'S RIDICULOUS. 

Happy Monday! 


  1. HEHE! Love the last part about being such a cool mom. Ryan and I always say how we are going to be the coolest parents.... but I have a feeling the things we think are cool, may not be so cool to our babies later. lol

    Hope your week calms down and you can relax a bit! Love the converse also! My classic converse are about to fall apart. I might have to invest in a colored pair next time around.

  2. I've had the same thought about being cool parents... I have a feeling Kyle & I are going to embarrass our children on a regular basis. Ha! :)

    My friend has a pair of green converse that I REALLY love. I will say this about the colored ones though, I think it's going to be harder for me to see them get grunged up a bit... for some reason the black ones look cooler that way, but I'm already seeing black marks on mine and it makes me sad, lol.

  3. Your shoes are awesome. :)

    And I agree w/ the sentiment that what we all think is cool, our children probably won't. Sad. But, that's okay - it's probably more fun to embarrass them (ha!).

    Look forward to reading some of those posts.

  4. time to pluck the brows? always perfect.

  5. Like Ashley, I'm looking forward to reading your posts. Those are all so interesting!

    Also, even if you DID go bald, you'd still be cute. :) Can't wait to see your new converse!
