Day 25

February 8, 2013


I make a really really good carrot cake, I mean it's really good.  I found this recipe in an Alton Brown cookbook in 2006.  I made it one day during my learning how to cook for Matt phase and it was amazing!  I brought it to work one day after a mix up at Bible study the night was gone by noon!  This is my spectacular cake!

I also like to crochet.  This is what I'm currently making.  I haven't decided if I'm going to give it to my friend who had a baby in November or keep it for hopefully the baby(ies) we will be having this year.  I kinda like the pattern and have enjoyed praying while I'm making this blanket that whatever child gets this blanket that they will be blessed beyond anything they could imagine and that they would choose to know God on an intimate level.

Guilty Pleasure

Hmmm, tough one as there are so many things I enjoy that I maybe shouldn't!  Let's start with an easy one...sleeping in!  I also love baths with epsom salts and lavender oil.  I love coffee!  I love to watch documentaries on Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans.  I enjoy documentaries on WW2, the environment and other random topics.

My current favorite indulgence is coffee.  Matt bought me an amazing expresso maker that has a milk steamer on it.  It makes a pretty amazing cup of coffee!  I also enjoy going to Dazbog for a cup of coffee even if I'm drinking decaf :)

Something Old

The slip that I wore under my wedding gown was worn by my grandmother on her wedding day in 1943.

This is my Charlie, he was 'cold'

Day 21

February 4, 2013


I don't think it's any secret that I dream of being a mother.  My dreams used to be filled with seeing positive pregnancy tests and the excited look on Matt's face when I told him that we were finally going to be parents, but as the treatments get more expensive and the emotional cost is getting higher and higher I'm finding that I no longer dream of positive pregnancy tests.  I dream of being in labor (weird right?) I dream of Matt right next to me while we are in labor encouraging me that we can do this, that he's right there with me, that he's so proud of me.  I dream of seeing our baby for the first time of touching his/her fingers and toes, of looking into our child's eyes and knowing that I am finally a mother.

Day 20

Someone you love

This one is sooo easy!  I love Matt! I mean look at that face how can you not fall in love with that smile every time you see it?  And the way that he looks at me when he smiles?  It's the best!

This was taken about 3 weeks or so after I miscarried

Day 19

Hmmm, I have kind of a sweet tooth when I'm in the mood for it and lately this is the sweet thing that I have been enjoying!


Day 18

February 4, 2013


I couldn't think of anything better to meditate on than the cross.  That cross is my whole world, without it I would not have salvation, I would not know Jesus who died to save my eternal soul!
