Let's Catch Up & Connect

Where did last week go?  We stayed home all week long, but I never got a blog post posted.  Sad face.  I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!  We are getting back into our daily routine (one that does not include sleeping in!).  Yesterday was sooooo hard for all of us.  Last week, I was looking at some really old posts and found something that I had started doing way back when Ethan was a baby (and now he's 7!).  I thought it would be fun to start it up every now and then.  And then you can pick one or all of them and post yours in the comments.  I would love to hear what's going on in your life.

Outside my window... roses are blooming, leaves are rustling and the sun is streaming in.  It's a beautiful day outside! 

I am amazing it would be to shut my eyes, but I need to make dinner soon and take care of some things first.  Oh, and I really need to get organized and make a list. 

From the kitchen... nothing much going on this week.  In fact, the kitchen is a disaster and will be cleaned today.  I am grilling up some BBQ chicken thighs for dinner, as well as Damn Delicious' Pesto Asparagus Pasta Salad.

I am pants, an old t-shirt and a hoodie.  I have no make up on because I got up 15 minutes before heading to the lab to get some blood work done. 

I am creating... Oh man, I have so many works in progress and things to start it's crazy.  Like I said, I need to make a list. 

I am going... to work out tonight and make that list I keep talking about.  I am also getting to share a little of me with some college girls tomorrow night.  It's all about mentoring and It's going to be awesome! 

I am reading... through my Bible Study book, Glory Chasers, written by a sweet friend.  I also am working on finishing For the Love, by Jen Hatmaker. . . it's almost done!

I am hoping... to try out another batch of macarons.  I bought a food scale, so I am excited to see if it makes a difference.  I am really loving the challenge!

I am hearing... kids playing and birds chirping.  Oh, and a dog barking.  It's actually pretty quiet around here.  We call this time "Quiet Time" so the kids are in separate rooms doing a quiet activity.  In reality, they are resting and giving me some peace. 

Around the house... piles. piles everywhere.  Definitely need to clean house.  It's driving me crazy!

One of my favorite things... Right now I am really enjoying fresh flowers.  It really livens up a room and just adds some freshness and beauty to the room.  I also am so excited for season 2 of Fixer Upper on Netflix. . . we are HUGE fans.  I think having coffee with Joanna would be a dream!  I'm even trying to talk Jon into shiplap. Oh, and have you seen the new vintage inspired Pyrex at Target?  Oh my, I think I'm in love!

A few plans for the rest of the week: survive?  Make a list.  I think that that would be the first thing to do.  I feel like my thoughts are scattered and I am going to forget important things! 

What I'm listening to:  This week, I am blasting Greater, by  Mercy Me and Holy Spirit by Francesca Battistelli. 

So, now your turn:

Copy and paste your favorite, or all of them and try it out in the comments:
