watching: portlandia. i just started and i do the most unattractive snort-laugh over and over again while i'm watching. i also watched pitch perfect when it came to the redbox (twice) and LOVED it! "i'm going to finish them like a cheesecake!"

thinking about: my talk this sunday! our church invites members of the congregation, rather than a paid minister or pastor, to speak every sunday. david and i are speaking together on goals, with my focus being spiritual goals. i'm excited (/terrified) to speak and i'm enjoying preparing. any resources you have on the topic would be mucho mucho appreciated!

reading: too many things at once. mere christianity by c.s. lewis, fairest by gail carson levine, and a million miles in a thousand years by donald miller. oh...and i'm open to suggestions if you've read anything un-put-down-able (it's a thing) lately.

celebrating: everything joony does. sitting up, standing up, rolling everywhere, babbling. it seems like every day calls for celebration with a baby in the house.

making me happy: this mug that my mom found at a thrift store and gave me for christmas:

other bits and pieces composing our "currently:"
comfort food: chili and cornbread (dairy/gluten-free!)
joons "helping" in the kitchen
orange juice and a homemade iphone speaker ;)
his obsession with my laptop prompted us to give him an old keyboard. best toy ever.


  1. I just finished kisses from katie by katie davis, a major must read!

    1. Ooh, I'll look it up! Thanks, Lacey!!

  2. the mini joons place setting with his spoon and jar of baby food. i die.

  3. hi, you don't know me... but i love your blog. :) anyway we just had a lesson in relief society about goal setting and one thing that i had never thought of before was the importance of including the lord in our goals that we set. Maybe that one is completely obvious (most likely) but like who better to share our goals with then with the person who knows us best and can truly help us and guide us. Another thing mentioned was the importance of goals and constantly trying to improve. they shared a quote that went something like "if we aren't acting, then we are being acted upon." good luck with your talk. :)

    1. Hey, Megan! Thank you so much!! That's perfect and goes right along with the topic of my talk. You are awesome!

  4. I just started a book everyone was raving about in blogland called "The Happiness Project." I haven't finished it yet, so I can't say that I love it, but I'm liking it so far! And it also has to do with setting goals and making yourself better, which is perfect for this time of year. :)

  5. Giving him the keyboard is so smart! Wish we would have thought of that a long long time ago!


oh, hey!

i think you're smart, pretty, and entitled to your own opinions.

i'd love it if the feeling was mutual!
