1.  My best quality is   that you can count on me. When I say I am going to do something, I do everything in my power to make it happen  .

2.  One of my less flattering qualities is  that my goals can cloud my focus. I get in my own little world and tend to ignore everyone around me    .

3.  I'd rather be    home with my girly working on Christmasy things  .

4. Something I have been challenged with lately is    truly loving my husband in a way that communicates love to HIM. How can I serve him and respect him the way he wants to be served? .

5. I am looking forward to  Christmas! I just cannot wait for it to come--well yes, I can. I really love preparing for it but this year is super busy so I need the days to be a little longer so I can get my stuff done :).

6. A super random factoid about me is   I eat a spoonful of peanut butter almost everyday when I get home from school. Its not an addiction--really.

7.  I want to  finish up student teaching so I can focus on celebrating my family and Christmas!! 

Happy Weekend fellow bloggers! This weekend we're traveling to DC to visit my sister and I'm super pumped about it! Let the road trip begin!

A lovely weekend

Happy Friday ya'll! 
May you enjoy today and the coming weekend!

1.  I like   chocolate, peanut butter, cookies, coffee, cozy blankets, hot showers, good books, building relationships, spending time with people I love, long walks, the beach  .

2.  A life goal of mine is   to live a life that is for the sake of the gospel. This includes so many things: building into people, allowing others to build into me, living in community, pointing my children to Christ, loving my husband through fulfilling my biblical role, etc   .

3.  The last thing you would ever expect me to like (even though I secretly do) is   crocheting. I had someone comment last week about how you don't see many people "my age" doing that .

4. Some wise words that I love are    not exactly quotes, but things that I try to keep in mind--Let go of expectations because they will destroy your joy. Don't complain about something you can't change--complaining only robs you! 

5. Most mornings you will find me   rushing around to get ready, eat breakfast, and get out the door by 6:30. After December 7, that will change and life will *hopefully* be a little more slow-paced.

6. Right now I am super into   Christmas. My mind has been reeling with things to prepare, bake, etc. I am so excited for Christmas music!.

7.  Right now I am super over  school. I am SO ready for graduation next month  .

Wishing you and your family a happy weekend! 

P.S.- I have Christmas on the brain! Be on the lookout for some of my Christmas-y thoughts and ideas :)

link ups and a link for you!

has come and gone. Once again, we are blessed with a Friday! 

I'm joining a couple of link-ups today! 
First off...
life rearranged

Trick or Treat was last night (don't worry I'll post the photos from my camera soon! 
Little E went as Lady Bug Girl (google her if you don't know her).
This was her tutu. 
Frankenstorm's havoc on our backyard
Seriously--we had snow in October!
Look at those two. 
Aren't they precious?!? My silly little lady wanted to wear her hat to bed
and her Papa was going to let her. 
I love them--they bring so much laughter to our house. 

I'm also linking up with Lauren for Fill in the Blank Friday! 

1.  Something I swore I'd never do, but have ended up doing anyway is    feed my children super-processed food--like chicken nuggets. But seriously--it is just too easy at this point in life. Once student teaching is over, my good intentions will return, I'm certain of it!  .

2.  Something I've always wanted to do is  Travel to Greece! Someday...   .

3.  Something I have absolutely no desire to ever do is   sky dive. I HATE heights! Also, I have no desire to see or touch any kind of snake...dead or alive. .

4. The best thing I ever did was    go to Uganda for 6  month. L I F E C H A N G I N G .

5. When it comes to trying new things, I am   usually excited about it, as long as it isn't something too crazy.

6. One thing I've never done is   gotten a tattoo. It's been discussed, but I just don't know that it will ever happen.

7.  My favorite thing do do is  different based on the season. Right now-curl up by the fire with a blanket and my loves .

Here is something I thought you might like! 
Simple living during the Holidays can be tough, but our family tries to do that. 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Fridays are just amazing in my opinion 
(especially after a week that included two snow days)! 

Spread some Friday love today,
