Wow what a week!!! Election crazies, busy schedules, a lot of heavy things going on with people I love. Could there be any more crazy in 2020!?
I am ready to focus on those things in my life that are good – that are bringing me happiness and life this week. It’s time to focus on the blessings. There is a season for everything, and I do believe we have to make time to mourn and go through the hard. However, it’s also good to be reminded of all the good as well – and sometimes it’s the littlest of things.
For starters my family. Man am I thankful for these people in my life that grow me, challenge me, make me smile and laugh, do the daily grind with me. I could go on and on over my love for my husband and kiddos. We recently got family pictures taken, and I am in love! Jamie did an incredible job!!! So thankful for these snapshots into our world right now.
Secondly – lunch dates. This is something John and I are attempting once a week. With all of our kids in school, we are finding this to be the easiest time to carve out for weekly dates. Our nights are so jam packed right now with sports, work, meetings, etc. Even our weekend nights include kids’ sports practices and games. Dates are just not easy nor really possible in the evenings most weeks, so lunch dates are perfect. We carve an hour out of our Thursdays and catch up. It’s amazing how much you can catch up on when uninterrupted and dialed in! We catch up on work, business, strategy, family issues and goals, life, etc. It’s been awesome.
I am such a sucker for words and quotes. Most of my home decor includes a quote or words of some sort. They are inspiring and uplifting to me. So naturally, I also love graphic tees. This week I have been wearing my graphic tees exclusively. My heart needs the reminder of the words. Today this shirt just seemed right. “In the waiting God is working.” I got this particular tee off of Crazy Cool Threads.
Also, pictured here are these blue light glasses. I ordered these because I keep hearing about the benefits of these glasses to shield us from all the blue light given off by all of our electronics. I am on electronics all day – my computer screen for hours, phone, and then television for a bit at night as well. I get tension headaches pretty regularly. And although my eyes are still pretty good, they are aging.
So far I am really liking these! I don’t know if it’s mental or not, but I feel like they reduce the tension the computer screen puts on my eyes. Also, I feel like the tension in my head has reduced as well! They are super reasonable on Amazon, so I figure it’s definitely worth a try!
Also pictured above and below are the bracelets I am loving. I love a good set of bracelets, and my friend at Shoebox Market has the best bracelets! I can’t get enough.
I finished this book this week. I loved it! It was very well-written and an amazing insight into the hard world of single motherhood as well as poverty. The perspective was very eye opening, and I loved the insight the read gave me.
Lastly, would it be a typical blog post if I didn’t talk about food? I don’t think so. This breakfast has been a hit this week. I made a batch a couple of days ago, and made a double batch the very next day. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal. We love baked oatmeal, and this recipe is next level.
What are some things you are loving right now? I love to hear about it all!!!
