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.
