Day 59

I was in my car listening to the songs on my phone and one of my favorite Christian songs popped up.

While I'm Waiting
by John Waller

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident
Takeing every step in obedience
While I'm waiting
I will serve You
While I'm waiting
I will worship
While I'm waiting
I will not faint
I'll be running the race
Even while I wait

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it's not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve you while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting on You, Lord

Day 58

My dear friend Jen had a baby shower for her first baby today! I forgot my camera, but I did get one of the burp cloth I decorated. I can't wait for baby Jaylin to arrive!

Oh, Target. We've missed you so.

Day 53

Taking pictures of a dog can be such a pain. Jack treats me like I'm the paparazzi and will not look at the camera. But he's such a sweet puppy that I'll take a profile pic any day. :)

Day 52

We went over to my parents tonight and had a yummy seafood gumbo that my dad made.

Day 51

Today, I went to a Tastefully Simple party at Brian's aunt's house. It's like a Tupperware/Pampered Chef/Southern Living at Home party, but you get to eat every product. I ended up spending waaaaaaaaaaay too much money, but I had a great time.

Day 50

Nothing like getting brand spanking new cookbooks while you're home on a sick day.

Day 49

Pizza night!

Day 48

Last night, Brian heard a mouse running around in the wall and ceiling of the utility room, which totally creeps me out. I can just totally feel their beady little eyes staring at me from my ceiling. Just thinking about it now gives me the shivers.

When I was in elementary school, I woke up one night to a weird sound coming from the trashcan in my room. I made my parents come into my room to figure out what the noise was because I was definitely not going to look in there. Turns out it was a mouse that had worked its way into my trashcan and got stuck. So my dad took a Hans Christian Anderson story book from my bookcase, covered the trashcan, and heroically took it to the garage.

This time, the heroics are coming in the form of d-Con under my house. We'll see if those mice want to mess with us again.

Day 47

It's been a while since we've checked in with my desk calendar. Today's verse seemed like it was good advice for everyone.

Day 46

Jack's started something new the past few days. Whenever someone is coming over, he'll jump up on the chest beside the front door and wait to see who is going to come through the door. Tonight I told him Brian was coming home, so he hopped onto the chest and looked back at me like "Well, open the door!"

Day 45

Growing up, my brother and I would take turns saying the blessing at the dinner table. When I saw this sign on the facebook page of a local store, I told my mom that I had to have it because it brought back so many great memories. So, my parents gave it to me for Valentine's Day. I can't wait to hang it up in my kitchen.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Day 44

I've been playing around in Photoshop today and using my Valentine's day flowers as inspiration.

Here's the before:

Day 43

This morning I was out of my office and when I came back, I had such a lovely surprise! I got my Valentine's flowers a few days early since Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday. Brian always does such a great job!!!

Day 42

A nightly sight whenever Brian eats dinner. I can eat and Jack will be sound asleep on the floor. As soon as I hand a plate to Brian, we see the above picture.

Day 41

Going through my cookbooks to start a new project for TTK. I stole the idea from my friend, Pamela, who said she was going to go through her cookbooks and pick recipes from them to make in a rotation schedule. I started with five of my cookbooks and have marked recipes that caught my eye. Cookbook rotation begins soon!

Day 40

I'm sick of snow, so I'm burning my spring candle in an effort to make it spring earlier. The snow is pretty and all, but it would so much prettier if I had a garage to park my car in every night.

Monday, February 8, 2010

Day 39

More snow today! We got a few inches overnight and then at about 11am, it started really snowing hard. So, my office closed at noon (yay!) and Jack and I are having a nice snow day today.

Day 38

Decorating cookies for the Super Bowl. Go Saints!!!

Check out my main blog to see the finished project.

Day 37

Ok, so I know I'm a day late in the posting this, but once I change the date on the posting, no one will ever know the difference! hahaha Oh wait, now they will. Oh well.

Saturday was our annual trip to the Tulsa Boat Show with Heather and Caleb. Inside the boat show, they had this HUGE slide of a shark chomping on a boat. However, the disturbing part of the slide is that you start at the butt of the shark and come out of his mouth. I'll let you ponder that for a while...

Day 36

Ah, the lovely gym. How I did not miss you.

Thursday, February 4, 2010

Day 35

God bless my wonderful mother. Thanks to her and her amazing organizational skills, this closet is beautiful. Before, you could not walk in this dark pit of despair, but now, you can run laps. It's awesome! Thanks mom!

Day 34

Today I'm doing things a little different. After seeing this on Kelly's Korner I thought it was such a good idea to capture the simple pleasures in life. Some days we get so caught up and need to refocus. So here are my simple pleasures.

Coming home and being almost tackled by Jack because he's so happy that I'm finally home

Getting a random text/call from Brian during the day

Crystal Lite Raspberry Lemonade packets

Archer Farms Strawberry Fruit Strips

A nice, hot Skinny Hazelnut Latte

Getting an email that I've received a comment on a blog post

Hearing a great song on Pandora

Having a full lunch sack to bring to work

Reading cookbooks

Making a new recipe and having Brian tell me it's the best thing I've ever made

Gmail chatting with best friends

Finding new wedding ideas so that I'm totally prepared for when he does ask

Listening to doggy snores

Finding money in a coat when winter begins again

Snow days

The fact that Yankee Candle catalogs are scratch and sniff

Day 33

Ok, so I didn't take a picture today, but I can't hold my excitement that LOST starts tonight!

Monday, February 1, 2010

Day 32

This would be what happens when you have snow on the roof of your car and hit the brakes at a 4 way stop. Thankfully, I was close to my office and had a little hole to peek out of, I just couldn't see anything else.
