Juggling all the things that need started, finished, finalized, created, discussed, prayed about, and visualized is really tough. I’m grateful for the help I have in my life and the grace they’re giving me in this transition time. However, my DD habits and principles have helped with breaking down some of the larger tasks in prepping for Cookie and the baby shower!
[Shoutout to my momma for being so thoughtful and amazing! We love love love love love Cookie’s baby blanket and I cannot WAIT to pick out some more things for his space! Thanks, Grandma T and Grandpa C!]
Don’t care how dodgy I look, WE GOT SOME DAIRY CREAM CORNER!!! I’ve had a hankering for a raspberry shake for a week or two and tonight was date night. Cookie and I are very happy.
[This ice cream place is a local hot spot and it just opened for the season about a week ago. They have AMAZING raspberry milk shakes. So, even if it is a bit of a drive, and was kinda late at night it was a blast to go. There’s always a bunch of people really excited about their ice cream. lol]
Been a tough week, so I’ve been taking time to relax and have missed posting. Don’t fear that I’m not DD-ing when I don’t post, it’s just not much worth reporting…
[Probably the best part of my entire week was chillin with my bff and this guy. Carson came into my life and totally changed my heart.]
When you’re growing up people will tell you ‘if you can’t say something nice don’t say anything’. I guess there’s a place for that, but some ‘not nice’ things NEED to be said. As we mature we have to discern what needs said and what doesn’t… It’s a learning process.
[Dinner at Denny’s at 9:30? Dessert too? Yep, it was a day. Thank God they’re only 24 hours long.]
Cookie Room Craft Project is a go. He was gonna need a dresser and this one fit the bill, we’ll keep you updated!
[We’re making baby registry progress and buying this dresser was one less thing to worry about! Daily effort compounded over time yields big results!]
Naming a human is thoughtful work…
[The future of naming babies?? 😂😂]
I wanted this mug back in 2013 when I was working on being more colorful, and as life sometimes goes I found it at a TJMaxx a few months ago! Taking time to reflect on progress I’ve made on my DD journey is humbling and surprising at times…
[Peppermint tea is heaven. How had I forgotten that??]
You know, your body has ways of making you rest, so just get the rest you need on a regular basis.
[Probably headed to MedExpress tomorrow morning, but feeling 1000x better. I also look about 100x better than I did earlier today.]
[^^ Earlier today.]
When you’re asked to give your opinion on a topic it’s a privilege. That person trusts you, so take the opportunity given and speak the truth in love. If you go around just spouting off what you feel is true you’ll find that people won’t ask for your thoughts, you’ve made them cheap.
[Last Wednesday I got to use the AC in our new car!! That will sound so trivial to a lot of people, but we’ve never had AC in our Bronco. This pregnant woman is rejoicing in this new car blessing daily!]
