The Goings Ons, v.11

in what i'm into

daring greatly

Reading: Daring Greatly by Brene Brown, Love & Logic for Early Childhood, and Tell it Slant. 

Listening to: Per Jonathan’s recommendation, Imagine Dragons’ Night Vision and Darius Rucker’s Wagon Wheel. I refuse to listen to Taylor Swift’s Never Grow Up because it makes me cry.

Cooking: Shauna’s Mango Chicken Curry and Simplest Dark Chocolate Mousse. (I’m telling you, the mousse is SO GOOD and SO EASY.) This weekend I’m going to try her cobbler and mexican corn for our Memorial Day barbecue. Have you bought Bread & Wine yet?

Baking: Peanut Butter Banana Bread, inspired by this recipe (although I substituted the mini Reese’s for peanut butter chips instead.) It was a little dry…maybe I did something wrong? I’ll be honest, my mother-in-law’s recipe turns out much better. 

Watching:  We’re going to the movies tonight to see Mud. Have you seen it?

Wearing: The same pair of jean shorts and a black skirt, because my stomach is taking over my entire body. Oh, and a cute new pair of Reef sandals that make my feet very happy.

Working hard on:  Nesting, resting and guessing when baby boy will be here. Also working hard to not complain about my constant congestion and hip pain, both of which popped up this week. Pregnancy sure does weird things to the body…

Thankful for:  Our front porch, perfect 80 degree days in the yard, the ability to kick my feet up when I need to, and a very generous group of women at First Covenant who gave me a surprise baby shower last week.

Anticipating:  Aunt Sarah’s visit in June

Some techy things you should know about: An app I’m loving this month is PrayerMate, which helps organize the people you’re praying for! Sounds nerdy but I promise it’s really cool. (Thanks for the tip, Brandee!) Also, has been a fun new way for me to attempt memorizing bible verses. I’m terrible with memorizing but I’d love to have more verses memorized than I do.

Any good music, book, tv, movie or recipe suggestions? 

Have a great holiday weekend!

I made the cobbler & Annette's enchiladas last night - both were DELICIOUS.  The cobbler is stupidly good for the lack of butter & sugar in it :)  Devouring that book - in so many ways. Happy cooking!  


"Pregnancy sure does weird things to the body…"

I know! It made my wife's belly huge! Is that normal?!
