Friend Makin' Monday ~ My Simple Daybook

Welcome back to another Friend Makin' Monday! Today we are participating in this wonderful meme: The Simple Woman's Daybook. Head on over to Amber's, link up your own post, and check out other great blogs. The last couple of weeks have been a little chaotic, but I plan to do a better job of making the rounds this week!

The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window . . .

It's gray and gloomy. Again. But, hey, no rain yet.

I am thinking . . .

That maybe, just maybe, I am not a true Oregonian at all. I need the sun, people. I need some warm weather! And if I have to wait until July for regular doses of the glorious sunshine, I might just cry.

I am thankful . . .

That I get to be at home with my daughters every day. Some days I take it for granted, but not today. I cherish the time I have with them. They grow so quickly.

I am praying . . .

For faith and guidance. To follow the path that God has mapped out for me and my family.

I am reading . . .

The Bible ~ specifically Isaiah, for our newest study: Breaking Free

I am creating . . .

Lots o' decorations for Kami's first birthday party coming up soon!

From the kitchen . . .

I hear the breakfast dishes calling my name.

Around the house . . .

Needs some serious organization! I'm trying to simplify and get rid of the clutter, but every time I feel like I'm making progress I find more and more to go through. Ugh!

One of my favorite things . . .

Is listening to my girls laugh . . . together. I love it when they are getting along and playing together happily ~ the way I envisioned it when we found out we'd be giving our first-born daughter a sister.

A few plans for the rest of the week . . .

Schooling, dance classes, and Kam's big days. Her birthday, on Wednesday, and her party day on Sunday! Such a big, exciting week. But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't just a little sad. How can it be that it is already time to celebrate her first birthday??? Waaahhhhh!

I get that it is so easy to be sad about a first birthday. Its like the end of babydom. What stinks even more? Realizing next year your baby will be in JR high. I am facing that and can hardly believe its real.
I am lucky enough to stay home as well it truly is a blessing.
Happy FMM!

Clutter is neverending! I am the same way, get something cleared out and a million more things seem to be lurking!!
Happy FMM!

Rhonda said...

Hey Liz! Sounds like you have a busy and fun week planned. I can't wait to see birthday pictures!

What is your favorite Beth Moore book you have read or studied?

Have a great day!

Colleen said...

You are counting your blessings, and making me remember mine! Thanks :)

Kelli said...

She's going to be 1. Wow! I need the sun too and I will be very happy when it makes its appearance. Happy Monday!

If you aren't a true Oregonian then stay away from MA! We aren't seeing much sun around here lately either!
The first year goes by so fast, enjoy Kam's birthday and her party.
Happy FMM!

Listening to my kids laugh is always a favorite of mine too. Their laughs can always make me smile.

Happy FMM!

I am Thankful to be home with my kids too. I also love to hear them laughing...that was my moment that I will miss from my Saturday post.
I look forward to seeing all the cool pictures from the party!

This looks like a really fun one that I missed out on...stupid work...ugh! lol. And well now I'm just too lazy.

I can't believe Kam is almost ONE...wow that year seemed to fly by...I hope she has a great birthday and party.

Anonymous said...

I too cannot believe that Kam is turning "1 year old"! How did that happen? However, every year is going to bring you something special!! I can guarantee it! I hear ya reagarding the study!
