Every once and awhile it's nice to take stock and reflect on what's going on in your life. This way, if I ever go back and read this blog years down the line, I'll remember a little bit of what my days were like during this season of life. (I think this originated here)

making || plans for Pippa's first birthday next week
cooking || skillet quinoa and chicken
drinking || a protein shake and Want More Energy? in my water
reading || "The Jesus I Never Knew" by Philip Yancey
wanting || to get rid of all the excess "stuff" in my house
looking || out the kitchen window, praising God that the sun is out and temps are in the 80s
playing || my summer playlist! bring on the country and Bob Marley
remembering || one year ago at this time when I was large and in charge, finishing up exam week, and preparing for baby!
trying || to eat more vegetables. It's not working.
watching || 30 Rock with Justin. We rotate that, The Office, and How I Met Your Mother on Netflix
deciding || how to fill our day. Walks? Playgrounds? Ice cream? All of the above?
wishing || Pablo hadn't just barked so loud he woke Pippa up from her nap
planning || trips to Wisconsin, Nashville, London, and Paris this summer!
enjoying || communicating with Pippa: roaring like a lion, baby signs, and attempts at words
waiting || for Justin's school year to be over
liking || long slow walks through Stillwater with the Pip and the Pab
wondering || why deli meat has to be so slimy?
needing || ice cream. Because summer.
wearing || my workout clothes...I guess I need to shower
noticing || how different life seems when I focus on gratitude
smelling || spring and mowed lawns and blossoming flowers
thinking || about how to simplify my life
buying || bike helmets for the whole family
feeling || content
