let’s have a coffee date

… actually let’s make in an herbal tea date since I’m off coffee now. 😉


Life has been going 1000 miles an hour around here and we finally caught a break. A big break. John finished his last semester of seminary on Saturday. He turned in his last paper at 4:30am and Sunday we all took naps. Then mama and daddy put their date clothes on and went out to dinner to celebrate! Just a summer project left and then school’s out foreeeever!!

Arsema figured out how to jump on Mareto’s trampoline now that she can reach the handle bar. It’s pretty much the cutest thing ever.

John has three graduation ceremonies this week. One for his degree in theology, one for his degree in Christian education, and one big graduation ceremony with the whole school. Yes, my crazy husband decided to get two master’s degrees instead of one. I’m ridiculously proud of him.

I need to post some stitch fix for you asap! I’ve had three boxes come that I haven’t blogged yet. The 8th box was the charm — I kept every item!

Our clean eating, whole foods, mostly plant based thing is going so well! We’re over 6 weeks in now and still feel wonderful. I haven’t had meat in over a month. I don’t miss it at all. I’m also off dairy and heavily leaning toward going vegan. One step at a time, but it’s something worth working toward.

I need to start exercising more. (I say more, but anything is more when you don’t exercise at all… unless chasing babies counts.) I’m trying to figure out a way to do it that doesn’t involve a lot of money or time away from my kids, and is fun for me. Let’s face it, if I don’t enjoy it I won’t keep it up.

John and I had some long talks last night about my book and the goals I have for that. Once his summer project is finished we’re finally going to be in a place to commit to my writing. I’m getting so excited to have a timeline in place and a goal for pursuing publishers and even looking at future writing projects. Pray for me?

What’s going on in your life? Big plans? Little plans? New goals? Accomplished goals?
