a snapshot of me

right now…

- I enjoy a bowl of granola for breakfast.  Vanilla almond flavor from Trader Joe’s.  I average a bowl a day.

- I get out of bed between 6 and 6:30 a.m.

- I wear my black lulu pants and my slippers more than any other item of clothing I own.

- I snack on cheese and crackers.  English cheddar cheese with caramelized onions form TJ’s with wheat crackers is my favorite combo right now.

- I aim to be in bed by 10:00 every night.  I hustle to get there so I can read for a while before I go to sleep.

- I go in phases with what I eat for lunch.  I was in a grilled tomato sandwich phase but am now in a regular ramen routine.  Thankfully I think I’m pulling out of it.

- My hair has been long for a while.  Well, long for me.  Denten said the other day that he was surprised I hadn’t want to cut it lately because I am usually not satisfied with my style for very long. 

- I listen to primary songs and scripture scouts when I’m driving unless I happen to be alone.  When that miracle occurs I drift between NPR, current pop hits and a country station.

- Asian is my preferred type of cuisine these days.

- I am currently half-way through the Hearts of the Children series by Dean Hughes.  I began after we got home from Christmas break and expect to be done by the end of the month.  I have Outlander waiting patiently to be next.  Pillars of the Earth and a Love and Logic book are on hold for me at the library and the Five Love Languages for Children is on it’s way.

- My grey skinny jeans from the gap are my favorite pair of jeans.  They are probably not the most flattering, but they are the most comfortable.  The blue cardigan I got at Nordstrom’s with my mom is my favorite and most-worn sweater.

- My mind is regularly occupied with thoughts of schools and education.

- I love my brown sheets with satin polka-dots and my bath towels from the Lowell.

- I lost one of my turquoise circle stud earrings at my in-laws over  Christmas.  They were the pair I wore most frequently.  I lean toward gold and brown more than silver.

- I have not had a pedicure since Thanksgiving.  Thankfully it is not summertime or that would never do.

- I do sodoku when I am in the bathroom for any amount of time over 25 seconds.

- I think Cooper’s room is my favorite room in my house right now.  It is the only one with real furniture and stuff on the walls. 

- I use my green and white McCall blanket whenever I am on the couch.  I use my blue quilt my mom made me when I was in YW when I nap on my bed. 

- I prefer soft toothbrush bristles. 

- I am 31 years old, between 5’5’’ and 5’6’’ and weigh between 102 and 105 lbs.

I told you you would not regret that purchase. I am taking mine to the hospital with me for my wear home pants, please bless they fit. I long for my lulu.

I like your snapshot. I'm pretty good at documenting where my kids are at, but not so much myself. I'll have to try something like this (minus posting my weight...you are brave, and tiny!) :)

I read both Pillars of the Earth and Love and Logic and enjoyed them both. Love and Logic is one I read over and over....and over.

We listen to Scripture Scouts in the car, too. Kids love them. The thick UT accents crack me up.
