Fill in the blank Friday

1.   I am currently obsessed with  reading and following other people blogs from all over.

2.  Today I am   tired  because,  it is Friday - it has been a long week.  I know we will find lots to do this weekend but we don't really have any plans this weekend.  Also gas went up to $3.45 a gal. that is just depressing.

3.  The age I am is  38  and the age I feel is  way less this is not what I thought my life would be like at 38.  I just don't know where time has gone.

4.  My favorite place is   out and about - on a vacation or getaway.

5.  Something I have been procrastinating is   hooking up the printer, working on the guest room, tagging clothes for the one week sale coming up in April.

6.  The last thing I purchased was   Nike t-shirt that says BELIEVE on it.  I love anything with Believe.

Loving Wednesday

Can you believe its Wednesday - 

I am Loving my Wed night Bible Study -  We are reading It is on Life You've Always Wanted by John Ortberg. 
This week was on having a DEE DAH DAY -  It is a relatively simple dance expressing great joy.  Its when you are too Happy to hold it in any longer, when words are inadequate to give voice to your euphoria, you have to dance to release Joy.  So you dance. So I hope everyone was a DEE DAH DAY this week.

So we had a celebration with cupcakes and music and we danced.

This coming week is on "hurried" -  If you are always in a hurry you are going to miss the dance.  Did you know that always being in a hurry is a sin?

I am Loving - Ashley Valentine outfit. 

I am Loving - that Tuesday our 3rd qt Midterms were due.  That means I have about 13 more weeks till Summer and Pool time.
 Ashley's new swimsuit for swim lesson we are taking at the Y on Saturdays.

When I need some Me Time - All You Need is Love Challenge Day 1

I am joining Neely, Courtney and Sam All You Need Is Love Challenge.

When I need some Me time I like to

go shopping - not sure if that is a good thing or bad thing.  Cause you spend money.  I like to buy
Then I also like to have my nails and toes done. :)

I also like to tan - I know its not the best for you but I always feel refreshed after.

I really want to try  a Spray Tan.  Does anyone do this?  Do you think it last?

I also like to take Hot Baths, with bubbles and candles, and a magazine, and slow music  - I could stay in there all day.

Have a Great Monday!

Loving Wednesday

I am Loving -  that I have had two days off of work this week!  We have had lots of snow and Ice. 
All Wednesday (Feb. 2) classes at the University of Illinois at Urbana- Campaign are canceled.  This does not happen very often!

I am Loving  that Sunday we get to go to Maddison Birthday Party - Maddison will be 4 -  Happy Birthday Maddison

I am Loving - that Friday Franklin plays in 8th grade boys basketball regionals.  The season has gone fast - except I am ready to be home in the evenings.

I am loving that today I made my first Cherry Pie.  Last time Ashley and I were at the store she some how threw in the cart these rolled up pie crusts.  I had to figure something out to do with the pie crusts.

Share with me about how much Snow you have received this week?  Did you make anything exciting?
