Thinking about... Becoming a Jamberry Nails consultant. Actually, I've decided I'm going to do it, so it's more thinking about all of the possibilities! I've still got my Etsy shop going (please go take a look!), but I've really been wanting to do this, too. I just keep coming back to the idea of doing it, and there's only so many times you can hear "I love your nails!" before thinking, "Hey, maybe I can do something with this..."

Also thinking about how stinking big my girls are getting. Is there a way to stop this?! Please? Just for a little while?

Planning... a trip to NC for the 4th! I'm super excited about this for several reasons. The first is because I love the 4th. Seriously. Maybe it's because deep down I've always been patriotic. Maybe it's because OMG, the history. Maybe it's the fireworks. Maybe it's the BBQ celebrations. Maybe it's because my birthday is 5 days afterward. I don't know. I'm excited. We haven't been to NC in a few months, and being so close it's hard not to want to go. Plus, Charlotte has practically been begging to "see cousins" for at least a week now. I know we'll all have a great time. Plus, the potential for free babysitters (thank the Lord for grandparents ;-))! So basically....I'm excited. And now I need to find our leftover sparklers from last year. Hmmmmmm.

Watching... Duck Dynasty. I'm a teensy bit obsessed, and so is Joe. I don't know if it's because they're rednecks (and remind me of where I grew up), because they're hilarious, or because they're a good, down-to-earth family. Either way, we are enjoying it. And buying all the Duck Dynasty things! Haha!

Craving... all the chocolate! You'd think I was pregnant with all the cravings I've been having lately. {I'm not. I swear.} AF has reared her ugly head, {SEE?! Not pregnant! :P} so along with her presence I apparently get pregnancy-style cravings. Never noticed that one before. Anyway, I made this Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup the other night and it totally hit the spot! I think it's going to be my go-to we have nothing in this house that I want treat. You can thank me for sharing that later. ;-)

Nope, she's not mine. Not at all. 

Loving... that we've cleared out a bunch of junk in the house, and things are finally starting to look the way I want! It's kind of sad that it's taken this long to get things arranged the way I like, but I guess that's just the nature of having little ones around. We still have some clutter to get rid of, and things to put in storage, but I'm thrilled with our progress. I can relax so much more without all the junk in the way! I have conceded that we will have toys all over the place, but I can't handle clutter in every corner of the house. I didn't completely realize how much it was bothering me until we rearranged some furniture last week. But when I sat down and saw what our hard work did, I felt a little lighter! Once we get things a bit more cleaned up around here, I'd like to do a tour of our house. Because it's better late than never, right?!

Trust me, it looks so much better now.

Hoping... that our summer PWOC study goes well, and will provide me with some friends. It's no secret that I'm super introverted and have a hard time making friends. I really just want someone I can connect with - someone who will "get" my introvertedness and be willing to deal with it. Someone who will challenge me, invite me over (or come to me!), and deal with my craziness. That's not too much to ask, right?

I'm also hoping that your week is off to a great start! Happy Monday, friends. Make it a good one!


  1. Everybody has been posting about Jamberry lately. I had never heard about them until a few weeks ago. Let me know when you start selling because I am going to have to try it out. I love anything to do with nails/nail polish!

  2. I love Jamberry!!!!! :-) I have my 4th of July ones all ready to go. :-)

  3. Totally pinning that cookie in a mug recipe! Also, have fun in NC! Jamberry is apparently all the rage now, isn't it! I haven't tried them, but I hear a lot about it everywhere.

  4. So glad you all will get to spend the 4th with family. Us too, except they are invading our house. Haha.

  5. I love Jamberry nails - I've been toying with the idea of selling them too. Good luck with it :) Enjoy your 4th with your family - it's always fun to spend time with family for the holidays!
