mom-mode post #148 on what I’m into this month

July 6, 2011 § Leave a comment

I blatantly stole momfessions‘ idea last month and I’m doing it again. Let’s make this a monthly thing, shall we?

On what I’m into this month – July 2011

on my nightstand – This month I got the chance to read a few books, but one reading I enjoyed was ‘The Millennials‘ by Thom Rainer, it was a simple little book that painted a portrait of my generation, the millennials. If you were born between 1980 and 1991, you might actually enjoy it.

in my Bible – I’ve started a study on the book of Galatians this week, and I’m loving it.

on my television – Did you guys watch the show ‘The Voice‘? I know it’s already over, but I’ve caught up with it on hulu and loving it. I’ve also started my now annual summer marathon of the Gilmore Girls. Always a classic.

in my kitchen – in celebration of the husband’s big thirty, I had to bust out PW’s cinnamon rolls. They’re a little involved, but always worth it.

in my ears – I’ve really been into old school Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5. I crank up the stereo and dance to it while I cook. My kid must think I’ve lost it.

in my closet – I acquired a few fun pieces while on vacation and some great new make up. But what I’m really into this month is this lovely silver ring the husband got me while away on a trip to the Black Sea last week. Isn’t it just so pretty? I just love me some simple beauty like this.


mom-mode post # 147 – on the husband’s 30th birthday

July 4, 2011 § 2 Comments

A couple of days ago the husband reached a major milestone. His 30th birthday. Wait. Didn’t we just meet yesterday? And weren’t you like, 19? I guess it was much longer ago than that. I am so blessed to have lived life beside you for the past ten years. My prayer is that I get to celebrate with you many, many more major milestones to come.

You’re still so young. Thirty is the new twenty, I hear. Yet you have lived through so many adventures and accomplished so much. Many older than you can only dream of having experienced and accomplished as much as you have. Your smarts, your impressive good looks and your kind heart are something only the great ones get to enjoy. I know your humble attitude will even be embarrassed by this last sentence, but I speak the truth (and spare no modesty). Ask anyone. You are one of the great ones. I’m just thrilled I get to share life with somebody like you. Love you husband. Live long and live happy until the day we meet with Him.









couldn't find a pic of just you and your parents! so here's them and O.

Where Am I?
