I've been working on this 4-6 months comprehensive post about Molly, because she deserves it and because I already have mommy-guilt over the unsurprising dip in monthly-status posts about my second-born (like I should). That post will come, once I have some time in front of my iPhoto, with her calendar, to properly chronicle everything.

This, I saw on Sydney's blog, and thought, what the heck, let's bust this writer's block or whatever you want to call the radio silence I have going on over here.

Making: (this is honestly the first thing that came to mind) milk for my baby. Pumping, pumping, pumping, while I am away from her.
Cooking: I've made this turkey-quinoa concoction twice (via bf Erin's recommendation), and it's so yummy!
Drinking: water with lemon in it, out of my beloved Target water bottle
Reading: The Pomegranate King, written by my friend Nishta. I am almost finished, and I don't want it to end yet.
Wanting: more hours in the day with my children
Looking: forward to legit fall temps (layers! scarves! etc)
Playing: "in the middle" with Jules (a song she learned at school)
Wasting: organic greens from Costco. It's dang hard for us to eat that whole box before they go bad.
Sewing: um, excuse me?
Wishing: for some Minnetonka mocs (these). Maybe this is my year.
Enjoying: watching my babies interact with each other. There's absolutely nothing like it.
Waiting: for my nephew and then niece to arrive, in the next 8 weeks!

Liking: shopping at Costco. They have so many real-food items there these days. I love Lauren's post about it.
Wondering: when exactly to work out, now that the daylight is waning? 

Loving: having my bangs back (!) (Thanks to Hannah for the encouragement!)
Hoping: to finally start really journaling again.
Marveling: at the season change that has begun. It's simply amazing...every year.
Listening: to music that reminds me of a lifelong friend I lost last week. I love thinking about her and honoring her this way. It's been really tough
Needing: 8 hours sleep. It's but a fond and distant memory, at this point.
Smelling: nada. I've been out of perfume for months.
Wearing: a grey cardigan from Target nonstop. I love the length. (this one is similar but not exactly the same--can't find the actual one on the website)
Following: theSkimm. Have you heard of it yet?
Noticing: our butts are currently getting kicked by Dave Ramsey, and it's a good thing. Much-needed, actually.
Thinking: TGIF. I mean, really.
Feeling: bone-tired. See above.
Bookmarking: real-food recipes/philosophies. Trying to make simple changes, one at a time (we quit buying cereal, for example).
Giggling: at all of Juliette's sentences that start with, "How 'bout...."
Feeling: thankful for my family. every single day.


  1. I love posts like these. So full of great conversation starters. Like Dave Ramsey--you need to fill me in!!

    And my fave line, Sewing: Um, excuse me?

  2. This is such a cute post! So many comments I want to make! But I will just say this one: Hang in there with Dave Ramsey. It is so incredibly worth it. I've been there- let me know if you need some encouragement!

  3. I wanna do this! Love it. And I, too, want to hear about how Dave Ramsey is going. Way to make me feel guilty on the cereal.
