listening, eating, making, reading. vol. 3

I feel like if I tell you these four things I'm giving you the perfect snapshot of what I've been up to. Plus, they're all things I love to do and love to tall about. So here goes! 


25 by Adele. I'm always a little behind the times, so I'm only just now going crazy for Adele.  But seriously! I can't get enough.  If you were to catch a glimpse of me driving in the car you would surely see me belting out the Adele at the top of my lungs.  Also, Adele has been my choice of music when I make my feeble attempts at running. Not you're typical workout jams, but I am so mesmerized by her voice, it's the only thing I can listen to that will truly distract me from how much I hate running. 


It's finally cool enough to use the oven again! We've been cooking up lots of bacon to use for BTL's with garden fresh T's. I also made this tasty coffee cake the other day.  Even Johnny liked it!(Also, Hatch Prints mug.) 


So many things. Or should I say, sew many things. I made some bloomers for Trixie.

And some little drawstring bags for storing knitting projects in. 

And over the weekend Alex and I made a headboard, so now I can lean my head on something while I'm nursing Trixie in the wee small hours. Our room used to look like this.

 Now it looks like this! Yay!!


Gilead. Recommended to me by so many people. It took me a while to get into it, but now I understand why everyone loves it.  It's truly beautiful writing that speaks so tenderly on the mysteries of the Christian life, and love, and parenthood. I really need to hustle and finish it though, because this one is next on my list and I want to get it read before Fountains of Carrots does their book podcast on it!

  1. 1. Adele is the best, love her even more for saying no to Super Bowl Halftime show because she felt it wouldn't be authentic to her style and music.
    2. the headboard looks just gorgeous!

  2. I love the headboard and the bloomers you made Trixie... so cute!

  3. That headboard. *swoon*
    I think we're on the same reading wavelength. Both of those are top on my list TBR.

  4. I was just culling books and found Gilead. It almost went into the giveaway box, but I had a second thought and put it back on the shelf. I'm glad I kept it. Now to find time to do some reading.
