What We’re Eating this Week: Monday blessed us with dinner salad courtesy of my husband S. I promise the man does things with salads that are just ridiculous and so yummy! It had sliced turkey, ham, strawberries, cheese, lettuce, boiled eggs, and even a few grapes for those adventurous enough to try. It was SO good and we’ve pretty much crushed it. Last night was spaghetti, but tonight is Beef Enchiladas. This recipe was shared with me by a friend when the family travelled to Florida for New Year’s two years ago. It’s so yummy and so filling! Here’s a recipe that closely mirrors exactly what we do.
What I’m Reminiscing About: High School. Recently the family attended Bug’s High School Orientation. It got here so fast. It seems like yesterday he was just 10. Walking around the campus and experience all that he has the opportunity to be exposed to has made me think back to my high school days. I was certainly an awkward thing. Bug is so much more extroverted than I though. I think he will be just fine!
|Reallllllly awkward phase lol!|
What I’m Loving: 100th Day of School! This was awesome. Yesterday was Honeybee’s 100th day of school and her teacher asked that the students dress as if they were 100 years old. I was slightly disappointed that more didn’t participate, but my girl did and rocked the heck out of this wig!
|Love my Honeybee!|
What We’ve Been Up To: Goal Digging! I promised God that I was ready and willing to walk out of my comfort zones. I felt that He’s been nudging me to do so for years and I’d been clinging to comfort instead of trusting Him in the unknown. The absolute moment I said “I will trust You”, things started happening. Professional and personal goals have been coming together like crazy BUT the big things are stepping out on faith. Next month, I start a Masters degree program in a concentration that has been my passion for years. I feel like this is where God wants me to be and I can’t wait to begin. Don’t worry! I’ll share where once He says it is okay to do so. Still, what a blessing it is to trust God!
|Let’s Get It!|
What I’m Dreading: Nothing. I have a meeting next week that I’m not too excited about, but I’m not really dreading anything.
What I’m Working On: Sooooo much! I was recently blessed with the opportunity to pitch a social media management campaign to a potential client. She looked the pitch and asked for a contract to be drawn up. That’s awesome! Add that to the social networking I’m doing for a few others and the branding and modifications I’m doing with So Frequently Frazzled (coming soon) and I’m a busy Mama!
|Hurry up and return!|
As for reading. I finally finished the Slow Burn series by Bobby Adair. I started it years ago and kept getting distracted while waiting for a new book to drop. Finally, all were done and I read the entire nine box set. It was awesome! I was pleased with how it ended, but kind of wanted an epilogue somewhere. Now, I’ve downloaded Bobby’s Ebola K: A Terrorism Thriller. I haven’t had a chance to get beyond page one, so pray for your girl…especially with this outbreak of Corona virus going on.
What I have been reading are Bible plans on my Bible app. I’m currently on Day 29 of 365 for Bible in One Year. And the last day of Confident Moms, Confident Daughters by Maria Furlough. Unfortunately, I’m not enjoying that one as much as my previous plans—Goodbye Grumpy Mom and Proverbial Girl: Wisdom, Values, and Being Fabulous. (By the way, I enjoyed the latter so much that I’m actually ordering her book from Amazon). I’ll review it later and share my thoughts.
What I’m Wearing: I’m back to business casual! Today it’s black business slacks white a white peplum top and a gray cardigan. It’s a favorite outfit and I love it.
