Things I want to tell you about this week…
+ Isabelle’s 2nd birthday was a week ago, and we went out to ice cream to celebrate. At the ice cream shop Clara says “Mom, tell me again… how does God get the baby in a mommy’s belly?” at which point the lady next to us almost choked trying to keep her laughter in.
+ We’re officially house hunting in Seattle! If you don’t know, Seattle is the fastest rising real estate market in the country right now, and it is CHAOS trying to buy a house here. I could go on and on, but I’ll save it for a different post, once I’m on the other side. Keep us in your prayers! This will be the first house we’ll be buying together and it seems like a very adult decision!
+ Last month I took two trips (solo!) to San Francisco and Denver to be with old friends. There is nothing like hanging out with people who know me. But also, it’s interesting to hang out with people who knew me long ago, when I was pretty different from who I am today, at least in my opinion! It got me to thinking… do our old friends know our truest self, or do they have opinions formed about who we are that may not necessarily be true anymore? Something I need to think more about…
+ Tim is working on big things at Starbucks and this article explains a lot of it. I’m proud of him!
+ My dad organized a little competition to predict the winner of the Kentucky Derby this past weekend – and I won! I actually picked THE TRIFECTA! We each had to pick three horses and I picked the top three! Now if only I had actually bought a ticket and won some money… (But let’s face it, if I had actually put money on it, my horses would have been dead last.) My prize is a nice bottle of wine – so I’ll take it.
+I read “How Not To Die” a few days ago and it immediately changed the way I view food, and has changed my diet a bit, too. I highly recommend it if you like reading about nutrition and are trying to eat more intentionally.
That’s it for now! I’m exhausted right now and I still have an entire week to get through with my two little crazies.
