Currently 11/30

The last few months I have been doing a "Currently" post.  It is fun for me to think about my week. To open up, and show bits and pieces of my daily thoughts, and life.  I'm linking up with Becky from Choose Happy.


Giving Thanks....Each Thanksgiving for the last 5 years we have made Thanksgiving cookies.  Some years are harder to get them done then others, especially since I've added 2 kids to the mix since then!!!



Our cookies from this year.  And yes there was a slight Pintrest fail!


Enjoying...These little girls are too funny.  What are the chances of my friend and I packing the same pjs for them?!?!?!?



Project...I finished my frame around the mirrors.  



Loving...My friend brought her new jewelry to show us ladies Saturday night and I grabbed a couple fun pieces!

What I Wore

This month I am joining 'What I Wore' with The Pleated Poppy but with a twist....I will also be joining Christina at Our Wood Home for 'No Pants November Style Challenge'. 


 Bible Study

 Church

Sister Shopping Trip

Doctor Appointment and errands alone

Some days it is just too hard to remember to take a picture!!!!


It has been fun to put together outfits that work for every day use and things I haven't worn for awhile.  I'm finding skirts I haven't worn in quite a few months.

Guidelines I've been following:

Power Outage....Some family fun even though the power went out at 5:30. Thankfully we were done eating and all the leftovers were put away.  We ended up playing a fun game of 'Life'.



 Awesome man....Even with no power, this man took out his tools and fixed the coffee table!!!!



Sister Shopping Trip...I needed to go to Ikea, since my sister had never gone before she went with me.  So much more fun shopping with someone.



Working on....At Ikea I picked up some mirrors for above my sink.  I would like to frame them in yet to look more like the windows but first I have to get use to them.  It is different and it might make me keep my sink clean!


Quote...I changed the chalkboard on top of the piano for Thanksgiving.

Thankful Thursday Week 3

This marks week 3 of 'Thankful Thursday'.  There is so many things to be thankful for.  Many times I don't take the time to pull my phone out to take a picture of little things during the week.  This has been good for me to document those little things!

My Why....This picture right here is why I get up in the morning, why I have gray hair, why I am exhausted each night, and why I am who I am today!!!!!  And I am going to just post this one picture for my Thankful Thursday Post.


Daily Thanks....

The last few months I have been doing a "Currently" post.  It is fun for me to think about my week. To open up, and show bits and pieces of my daily thoughts, and life.  I'm linking up with Becky from Choose Happy.

Family Time....We took a quick walk on the Red Cedar Trail and then out to pizza with the kids.  Even better I think it was the best time baby girl has ever been in a restaurant so it made for a completely enjoyable outing!






Parents...My parents celebrated an anniversary on Saturday!  Even better, they are standing in the same church they got married in 47 years ago.  They are such a good example to us to follow.




More beautiful weather...Yesterday was another beautiful day!  Today not so much and last year we had snow on the ground.  So I will take the sunny days when we have them.

Yes, they even shingled it!!!!


Entry


Kitchen, when Pa and Grandma were shopping they didn't find a kitchen set that they really liked so they tend to set the dining room table up in that room.  
And yes, they scaled down their kitchen border to put in the kitchen!!!!


Upstairs hallway has family pictures like ours does.


Bedroom


 Bathroom

I couldn't of asked for a better present for her or the rest of the kids.  All four spend hours playing together with it!  Complete with a family mini van....

Thankful Thursday Week 2

This marks week 2 of 'Thankful Thursday'.  There is so many things to be thankful for.  Many times I don't take the time to pull my phone out to take a picture of little things during the week.  This has been good for me to document those little things!

Little helpers....as a mom I tend to not have enough patience for the little hands that want to help.  This week my 4 year old unloaded the whole dishwasher by himself, I had no clue he knew where most everything went.  My 2 year old unloaded part and set the table while doing it!  


Family Nights...Earlier in the week we packed the big kids bikes and took a walk on a local trail then out to pizza for a Pizza Hut Book It.  Everyone enjoyed our short walk and our beautiful fall weather for November in the midwest!


Daily Thanksgiving...For our church I have been doing a 'Daily Thanksgiving' post on our Facebook page each day.  Each day I get the opportunity touch others in such a small and simple way!
