What I'm Into

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/
