One way we can get to know each other better is by sharing how we are currently living life.

Reading Chronological Bible reading plan, emotionally healthy spirituality, unseen, from fear to freedom , yes too many books at one time. Trying to finish them all by months end..

Writing – a currently post for the first time!

Playing – memory with the little girls, more times than I can count

Watching – the following. Totally disturbing and gives me bad dreams, but I am addicted none the less.

Trying – to be less insecure and embrace the body the Lord has given me.

Cooking – lots of Mexican dishes. Can’t help it, we love it!

Drinking – lots more water. Okay and dr. pepper 10. but have not had coffee since December.

Eating – orange muffins, made by my daughter!

Calling – my tween’s cell phone. Still can not believe she has one!

Pinning – ideas for my bedroom redo, kitchen update and bathroom decorating ideas.

Tweeting – fun ideas from friends and family. Don’t forget to follow me on twitter

Scrapping –  nothing these days. I guess you could say I am scrapping scrap booking!

Doing – Laundry. EVERYDAY. Will it ever end? And where are the missing socks?

Going – no where for spring break. Looks like another staycation for the Boerman’s

Loving – My new plum paper planner STILL. It’s everything I ever wanted!

Hating – this Michigan winter. It’s out of control and too cold. There is more snow than I care to look at.

Re-Discovering – my love for list making.

Enjoying – sewing projects for friends.

Thinking – I need a girls night ASAP. A crazy laugh all night, eat too much, drink too much (pop) girls night.

Feeling – blue about the fact that I have been so sick lately. I wish my Crohn’s would just disappear.

Missing – coffee

Hoping for – warm weather, a good coffee substitute, and the ability to eat ice cream without being sick. A girl can hope right?

Listening – to Hillsong everyday!

Celebrating – Hubbies birthday, and the fact Little Lennie stopped sucking her thumb! We are going to celebrate by having a rainbow themed party!

Smelling – tulips that I am house sitting for a friend. Forgive me if they die! I do not have a green thumb.

Thanking – God for my family. For my increased love of reading through the Bible and for a Pastor that speaks truth.

Considering – doing on online Bible study.

Starting – to eat a little better! Less snacks!

  15. The Following is so disturbing isn’t it? I almost watched the whole first season before I said enough was enough. My husband now watches it on his own. It’s creepy.

    I love the idea of sharing what’s going on in your life currently. It’s nice to know a little more about you! I’m reading four books right now at the same time. lol I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one who does this!

  19. Crohn’s is a tough one to deal with. I know it makes getting out difficult sometimes. 🙁 Speaking of staying home, staycations can still be fun!

  20. I am worried my laundry will never end either. Ugh!

  23. You’re quite the busy bee. A girls night out is in order!

  24. I don’t think the laundry ever ends, and I’m always amazed that even brand new socks that I’m sure go straight from the shopping bag to the washer still manage to disappear. . Crazy!
    I love this meme… Do you do it weekly? I’d love to start doing it and linking up! Let me know! 🙂

  30. I am totally loving your paper planner too! I am hating this Indiana winter (it’s probably much like your Michigan winter). I’m desperately in need of a girls’ night out as well! Time for me to plan one with my girlfriends!

  32. I am in desperate need of a girl’s night out too! It’s been WAY too long and I could use some girly chatter with a side of chips & salsa. Being a mom makes me miss those days!

  34. My oldest is nine and he’s been asking for a cell phone since he was in 3rd grade last year. There were a couple of kids in his class who had them, but I told him NO WAY. Maybe when he gets into junior high, but most certainly not in the 3rd grade!
