Friend Making Monday

Amber at {aefillkins} is hosting Friend Making Monday.

She wants us to finish the sentences from the Simple Woman's Daybook - I thought it was interesting so I figured I would join.

The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window... the weather is crazy, 60+ degrees on January 25th, 2010 in Washington D.C. I went for a walk with the twins in a tee shirt and flip flops. <3 it.

I am thinking....that I need to write some blog posts for my baking blog, and then send out some emails, and then do laundry, and then...

I am thankful... for the direction my life is going. I am finally in a place where I am truly happy. I am also thankful that my little brother is finally figuring out his direction in life.

I am praying... for my family. My brother leaves in about 3 weeks for bootcamp. I pray for him to have wisdom to keep him mouth shut when the Marines are screaming at him, I pray for him to stay safe and injury free. I pray for my parents, who are going to be experiencing a real empty nest for the first time in 25 years. I hope they take the time to get to know each other again, and fall even more in love with each other. We won't be there to bother them :-D (if only the dog would leave them alone)

I am reading... The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

I am creating... dinner (also in the middle of a couple crafty things)

From the kitchen... Dinner is in the oven :-D

Around the house... I have a lot of piles that need attention

One of my favorite things... Cinnamon crunch bagels from Panera, Matt surprised me with some yesterday :-D

A few plans for the rest of the week... work, run, make yummies for Austin, party for my brother at Grandmother's.


  1. Tell your brother to listen to the DI's, do what he is told and he'll be fine (I'm married to a Marine) Have a wonderful FMM :)

  2. It is nice to just be happy about the direction of you life.

  3. Happy FMM! Your parents will be fine! So will your brother. It's good to be happy with where we are at.

  4. Hooray for direction. We all love when things go how they are supposed to. I just read the lost symbol. Let me know what you think! Happy FMM!

  5. It was close to sixty here in TN last week, and we even had spring like weather with tornadoes and flooding... now it's snowing. Funny.

    Happy Monday!!

  6. Don't you love it when you feel so happy with your life and where you are? I love that feeling. Happy FMM!

  7. Thank you for being the first one to enter my giveaway! Good Luck!
    & I love Alton Brown as well. He is hilarious!
