I grew up Catholic and am still a Christian...we haven't found a "home"church yet, but I really want to. I want to belong to that community again, but I really want to find my relationship with God first. For Lent this year, I was going to give up Facebook or wine or something silly like that (although it's great to sacrifice anything), but I decided to join Natasha and Colleen and sacrifice spending: Target runs, Starbucks and GAP.com purchases will no longer exist until Easter. I want to focus on what I have and not "things" to fill my space. I am also going to get rid of STUFF. Donate. Sell. Trash. There are so many people with nothing that it seems silly to me that I have four pairs of black flats. (Although, they are all for different outfits, but I digress.) So, I will spend my time at the Children's Museum with Cam, reading a book (that I already have) by the fire or watching a movie with Chad. I want to appreciate what I have instead of wishing for things I don't.
2) Baby #2
Is on it's way. PSYCH. But, I have been thinking a lot about adding another person to our family and what that would mean. I know that everyone with one child can't imagine adding another person to the mix (How can you love TWO people like this? How are you going to manage everything?), but I can't wait. After seeing all of you lovely ladies welcome Baby #2 (or numbers 2 and 3 at the same time), I cannot wait. I can't wait for the bond. I can't wait for Cam to be a big brother. I can't wait to snuggle a newborn again. I can't wait. But I will. No rush!
There aren't many things I DON'T like about March. There's St Patrick's Day, warmer temperatures and endless basketball!! I am in heaven. I think March may be my 3rd favorite month after July and December.
Throwback to last year: Those cheeks. Those two teeth. That hair. I just fell in love all over again!
4) Reno Update:
The section that we are tearing down to rebuild is almost gone! There is no roof, no walls and no windows...just the little bit of walls left! I love seeing progress!
5) This is so last weekend, but my high school won the Girls' State Championship in basketball. We got to see them win last year and this year, and it's still just as exciting! When I was in high school, we were 1-17 my first two years then lost in the state championship my junior and senior year. Quite a change to where they are now, winning four state championships in a row!
