…wishing I wasn't so bad at summer. I remember a time I couldn't wait for hot weather, beach days, tank tops and shorts, tan legs. Now, all I want in life is for it to be October. I miss wearing cardigans, beverages with a hint of cinnamon, scarves, and not sleeping in a pool of my own sweat. I'm just not a summer girl anymore—nor do I own even one pair of shorts. In addition, I'm sporting what I like to refer to as the "mom tan": freckled shoulders, a flip-flop tan on my feet, and a stomach that is basically transparent. Oh, life.
…currently visiting my homeland (Washington State) for a couple weeks—with Eisley, without Jay. Quite the adventure, my friends.
…thinking a lot about friends I lost touch with over the years. It's hard to believe it's been almost a decade since I moved to California, and it makes me wonder about people I used to be so close to, but have completely lost touch with throughout the past decade.
…not very fancy, not really that fashionable, not willing to put effort into doing my hair more than a few times a week at this point in time.
…back on Facebook—but only to take part in a bible study. I'm keeping my page like a ghost town (AKA: friendless) in order to not get sucked back into the abyss. I still hate Facebook. Of course, it is already recommending me to people and sending me almost daily emails, "Do you know this person? How about this person? START ADDING FRIENDS ALREADY, YA FREAK." Suffice to say, if you try to "friend" me and I don't add you back, I'm not being a jerk. I promise. Facebook is just…not my jam.
…ready for Christmas movies.
…nearing my twenty-ninth birthday, and am oddly excited to be so close to thirty. Something about thirty has always appealed to me. I feel ready for it. I think it will look good on me.
…dealing with some fairly intense baby fever. Jay and I have talked a bit about baby number two, and we do hope we're able to grow our family by one (this is where God decides to be funny and give me triplets next time around) sometime within the next year. But, we'll see! It's tough that there is so much to think about in this day and age. Especially when we live in an expensive part of the country and in such a small place—and live on one income. But, man. Babies. They call to me. And something in my heart of hearts tells me that we could make it work. I worry about absolutely everything else, but this I don't worry about, strangely enough.
…in one of my crazy moods where all I want to do is go through everything we own and throw away half of it, and reorganize the half that remains.
…loving this post on Criticism vs. Cruelty from Momastery. Read it, read it, read it. "If you're not kind on the internet, then you're not kind."
