thoughts of the day

--today is a GORGEOUS fall day in kentucky {finally}. the sun is shining, the leaves are turning & i'm not wearing a coat. yippee.
--i love crafts but i get really frustrated {even mean} whenever i am creating crafts so maybe i actually love the idea of crafts and not the activity of crafting.
--i don't want to work. i want to be at home with my husband.
--i always wanted a little puppy. ben always wanted a big puppy. we dog sat for a week and a half & now neither of us want a puppy.
--we don't get to watch our beth moore video this week & i'm scared to miss her big hair
--i am going to eat a fudgesicle tonight
--one of my favorite YL girls told me last night "i'm 16 now, its time to cut the crap & really run after the lord." how awesome is that!?
--we have lots of bills due right now in the brzinski home & it stresses me out - even though i knew all of them were coming. i wish all the companies would communicate with each other and decide to come sparatically instead of filling my mailbox all on 1 day.
--i found the most dainty classic photos on esty today AND they come in card form. i'm getting a set of 4, framing them & using them as art in our guest room {which is on its way to a transformation}. i couldn't be MORE excited! -->i'll show pics soon.
--tonight is date night. i hope this includes a gift card meal, carving our halloween pumpkin & maybe even seeing where the wild things are. i don't know if there will be enough time for all of that though. irregardless {mean girls reference} i know we will have a wonderful evening together. can't wait.

do you have some thoughts for the day? please share.

    ..and really appreciate the mean girls quote. needs to happen more

  3. My thoughts are:
    - I totally agree about the weather - I became 100% happier on Sunday when I woke up and the sun was shining for the first time in a week.
    - I also have issues crafting, something will seem like such a good idea but when I'm making it I get impatient and it doesn't turn out looking so pretty
    - I love that a YL girls wants to cut the crap and really run after the Lord
    - I'm excited to see your dainty photos hung up in your house and the rest of the things you have done around your house
    - I like you alot and this post made me smile :)

  4. I remember those KY days. Which Beth Moore study are you doing? Great news about your YL girl. It is such a pure joy to watch my h.s. girls grow.

  6. wendy-

    we are doing 'living beyond yourself' all about the fruit of the spirit & living that out. we have only gotten through joy but it has been really awesome. i feel like the lord is teaching me a ton just about tapping into this awesome gift of the spirit that i RARELY recognize.

    thanks for all YOUR thoughts...those made me really happy!
