A Few of My Favorite New Things. . .

I am not a spontaneous type of girl. I am much more of a planning, checking, double checking, triple checking, etc. type of girl. But, last Friday I decided at the very last minute to drive to New Orleans.

6 hours.

By myself.

With four children.

Don't let your mind wander to how I handled potty breaks. Let's just say I had my hands full. And, I obviously didn't think ahead because I wore drawstring yoga pants. Have you ever tried to tie drawstrings with a twenty-something pound wiggle worm on your hip? It was an experience! :-) But, we made it, and I got to see my sweet husband who had been in New Orleans with his parents all week, and that is all that really matters!!!

Jen and Jason were there, as well, and Jen gave me this awesome Mother's Day gift. . .

She knows me well.

I mean, seriously, how cute!! "Mommy's Sippy Cup!" I love it, love it, love it! I have used it the last two days straight! And, I begin my mornings sipping it and holding cute little red-headed boys. But, once they begin to get up and play, I grab my Bible and this workbook. . . .

and head to my favorite chair at the bar. I sip my coffee and do this wonderful study! I love it because I like to talk a lot, and I don't mean just to others. I do a whole lot of talking to myself. And, I don't talk quite as kindly to myself as I do to my friends. So, I am in desperate need of a thought closet makeover!

And, when I glance up from my Bible study, I see this new frame that I bought with a picture of four of my favorite little people!

And, speaking of those four little people. . .
I have a new favorite book to read to them!

It is a take-off of Goodnight Moon. And, it is perfect for our family because the Big Easy will always have a very special place in our hearts.

And, these are a few of my new favorite things!

I have that same workbook. I think I will start on it tonight. I had read about it on LPM's blog and had ordered it a few weeks ago. I am the same way. I definitely could use a makeover in this area. Love you guys! Take care! By the way, I loved the mug. What a perfect gift for you!

AND I cannot believe that you went to NOLA by yourself with the boys. You are fearless!!!! and amazing!!!! So grateful your CoPilot was with you and kept you safe (and sound)!!! Praise His Name!!

Hi! I live in a sweet country home overflowing with love, laughter, and little ones. I have been blessed to journey these days beside a man that I love, respect, and admire. He is my soul-mate and best friend. Together we are seeking to raise our seven children to be lovers of God, to be wise and discerning, and to be all that our sweet God created them to be. I am in the goldfish and cheerio stage of life, but I am keenly aware that these days are slipping right through my hands. This blog is my attempt to keep our memories safe for years to come.
