So my buddy Rachael did this and I thought it was a fun idea, so here we go:
On my nightstand:
The Strawberry Shortcake Murder by Joanne Fluke. I recently read 3 pretty heavy books and I needed something light and fun. The murder series by Joanne are super cute and include fun cookie/dessert recipes. Easy, fun, lighthearted read
Expecting by Marla Taviano. This is one of those week by week pregnancy books. What I love about it though is it's link in with what is developing with your baby and a verse and prayer for your baby. I highly recommend it for any pregnant mama
Comforts from the Cross by Elyse Fitzpatrick. This is an "Ohhh!" or "OUCH!" book. I adore Elyse and love reading this book. I really don't think I can describe how awesome this book really is.
Grace Based Parenting by Dr. Tim Kimmel. I'm just gonna say I am needing some grace and I am needing to extend some grace to my boys right now.
Movies I've Seen
Monday on my day off when Spence took the boys for the day to his parents, I watched Just Go With It. It was a cute chick flick that I would totally recommend.
Also, on Monday I watched True Grit with Spencer. I fell asleep, he said it was really good. I think it was really slow...
*The Chew- if you haven't caught this yet, you gotta see it! It is on at 1 on ABC everyday. It is a The View with food. Each day has a a fun theme and you can get the recipes from their website. LOVE IT!
*Parenthood- I am not a "let's solve all the problems so we can smile at the end of 30 minutes" show kind of girl. This is a great one that doesn't work out everything each week and deals wtih some real life issues. Some of the topics covered over the past year have been: adult daughter returning home to her parents house with her two teens, a child being diagnosed with Aspberger's and the family learning how to help him best, a guy finding out he has a 5 year old son he didn't know existed, fertility issues/adoptions falling through. So it is just wow for me. It is on a 10 on Tuesdays on ABC I think
Those are really the only ones I gotta see, but we do also watch The Office, Glee, Bones, and House
In my ears:
*Christmas music, of course! The kids and I turn on the directv channel and love it!
* In the car the boys always want to listen to "our music" which can be anything from Go Fish Guys to a cd I made with tons of kids music from church years ago to the current kids worship music from church
In my kitchen:
I am in such a baking mode right now. The combo of Christmas and my pregnancy nesting is baking is out in full force! I am baking about 2 different things each week right now. Up this week is Saltine cracker toffee and whoopie pies. YUM!
Looking forward to:
*Christmas parties we have coming up. Can't wait to hang with some friends and also with our church staff (who are our friends too of course)
*Spence preaching on December 18
*Christmas services at the Summit. We are having 5 services between the 22, 23 and 24. You can get more info at http://www.christmasatthesummit.com/.
