Random thoughts

 This morning started with my mom coming over and spending special time with Judah. Paisley and I went and did some shopping together and had some girl time. We went to Michaels to pick up a few things and I was amazed to see all the cute fall decorations there. I shouldn't be surprised because after all, it is almost September. Seeing all those decorations really got me itching to decorate our house for fall. I picked up a few things and when I got home, my new decorations inspired me to hang some of our pictures on our walls.

We've had the keys to this place for 3 months now and I've really procrastinated about hanging pictures. I've over-thought it and been too much of a perfectionist. Hanging some of our pictures today felt so good. I kept on wondering "Why didn't I do this sooner?" I often build things up in my mind to be a much bigger deal than they really are. 

While Paisley and I were out running around, she was waving to everyone saying "Hi" and "Bye, bye". It was so precious. We saw some twin girls that I'm guessing were around 8 years old. They were in line behind us and they were talking to her and making her laugh. I love how sweet strangers can be sometimes! 

I didn't take any pictures today and that so isn't like me. I've been taking pictures everyday lately but today I didn't even think of it. 

Tonight I got into a competitive mood during dinner so, Jeremiah, Judah and I made up some silly competitions. We made "structures" with toothpicks and we also had a contest to see who could peel a grape the fastest. It was pretty fun! I see more family competitions in our future!

I've been thinking about a lot of stuff lately. Basically just life and what I want my life to be like. Who I want to be and what should be important to me. I've been thinking about how I spend my time and what kind of mom, wife and individual I want to be. It's been good and it's helping me sort out what's important to me and my family. 


  1. Your peeling a grape competition sounds really fun...I want to have a contest with Judah like that! Your home is a very special place!

  2. Love your grape peeling contest! Hilarious. And just plain fun.

    It's good to take time to be contemplative about who you desire to be. If we don't spend time thinking about who we want to become we don't get there, it doesn't happen on its own, it takes genuine effort, small (or big) steps that shape how we spend our time and what we commit to investing in....

    Glad you are feeling better!
