Finish This

1. I don't get enough...I want to say sleep but that is not the case. I get 8-9 hours everyday but I think all moms can agree with me that child rearing just wears you out. I could easily go to sleep at 8pm each night but husband time (or me time) is way more important. Right now I feel like my life is pretty well balanced, I get enough sleep, I get "me" time, we have date nights. Sure there are things I'd like more of but right now I feel full.

Gym daycare= just the motivation I need for a mama break


2. My favorite indulgence is...relaxing when Ford is napping. The day we got home from Hope Spoken I was beat. I had stayed up late with my roomies, gotten up early, and was "on" the whole weekend. I put Ford down for a nap and Jon told me to go lay down. I quickly responded with a list of stuff I needed to get done, vacuum, unpack, laundry. I am slowly learning that those things can wait. I can't seem to fall asleep when he's down but sometimes laying in bed in the quiet, alone, is just what I need to energize me for the next part of the day. I may or may not doze off while watching Real Housewives Reunion shows....don't judge. 

3. I made a major change in my life when...I met my husband. I prayed, the Lord showed me His path, I left all I knew, and took a chance on Jon. Some things in life are easier said than done, and this is one. I followed my heart, fell in love, and now thank God everyday for revealing what a true covenant relationship looks like.

4. You should read...A Case for Christ by Lee Stroebel. Jon and I are both reading it now. Skepticism isn't just for unbelievers, this book is absolutely incredible. Not only do I feel like A Case for Christ gives me concrete facts to share the gospel with unbelievers but also truths I need for myself. 

5.. My secret ingredient is...dry ranch seasoning. Oh. My. Gosh. It is a staple in our house. Added to potatoes, chicken, dips, eggs....do yourself a favor and stock up. 



Linking up with these ladies (Nicole {Three 31Lisa {The Coastal Chicster}and Becky {The Java Mama} Jen {The Arizona Russums}) for a weekly series called Finish This.

I was just thinking yesterday morning on the way to the gym that I am way more motivated to work out these days because it means I get at least an hour of alone time thanks to the childcare ladies. I have a hard time napping during nap time too... but yesterday I totally fell asleep!

Dry ranch seasoning sounds like a really tasting seasoning. I never thought of it. I'll have to give it a try.

I am watching you on house hunter now. Tell Ford I said, Hello from Raleigh, North Carolina. I just had a day working out at the Gym enjoying my day.

Oh my gosh I am SO lazy during naptime. Naptime=blog and social media time. I know we're rapidly approaching the end of naptime as a whole so I'm trying to soak up as much mid-day laziness as I still can ;)

Lee Strobel books are amazing! I am reading "More Than a Carpenter" right now by Josh McDowell. If you like "Case for the Christ" I highly recommend it. It is the book that answered so many of my husband's questions (a man who questioned Christianity for most of his adult life). Also, The Language of God by Francis Collins is one I want to read. He is a scientist involved with the human genome project who shares how his discoveries support creationism.
