Hearting: my husband Jim. I know that sounds sappy, but recently, he has been sweeping me off my feet...by just being a great husband and father.
Jim has been so strong and loving as we've gone through some hardships lately. And he has really stepped it up in helping us as a couple to grow in our faith and prayer lives (see the Anticipating section below - I am so grateful for him!).
|I found the two of them like this the morning after their indoor camp out. So sweet!|
AND he has been just relaxing and having fun with the kids when he's home. I seriously hit the jackpot with this guy!
Reading: several books right now. I'm reading Momnipotent and Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World for two different book clubs I'm in. They are both really helping me to see the beauty in being a wife, mother, and woman. I highly recommend them!
Jim and I are reading Treasure Island together - it is sooooo good! Every night when we come to the end of a chapter, one of us always says, "Just one more chapter...please?!" (Ever since we were dating, we've always been reading a book out loud to one another - usually a fun classic fiction book!)
|Reading during the kids' naptimes :)|
Pinning: toddler preschool and indoor activities for kids. We're snowed in, so I need some more ideas to keep the kids entertained. What do you do with your kids when you're stuck inside?

Eating: Chili! This winter has me on a serious chili kick. Taco chili, white chicken chili, and so many more. It's been a delicious winter. (I'll be posting more chili recipes soon...Sausage Chili...Veggie Chili...mmmm!)
|White Chicken Chili...yum!|
Anticipating: anything and everything surrounding our adoption. After our recent fall through of the twins, we're back to just waiting on the active list again. So I'm anxiously awaiting a call from our agency for another match. Hopefully, it will be in the next few months. (Will you please keep us all in prayer while we wait?)
Jim gave me a card with this verse in it when we first found out the match had fallen through. I just keep going back to this over and over again. God will answer our prayers and bring the perfect little one into our family at the right time! And He will keep us strong while we wait!
So what are you currently up to?
