Remember this post where we pretended like it was just you and me
sitting on the couch, chatting about our lives?
It's time to do it again.
So I'm gonna grab a plate of the gooiest, tastiest cinnamon rolls I recently made
and we'll chat it up, kay?!
I probably would start by telling you I'm so glad winter finally arrived
Or rather as my sister put it, snow finally came to join winter
It's fun to watch Hubs' excitement over all the powdery white
I should probably also mention that I hate driving bus in the dead of winter
Imagine with me. . .
It's dark and cold. Six in the morning usually is in January
I grab my keys. Walk across the frozen bus lot
Climb into the frozen ice box and start it up
The next ten minutes consist of pre-tripping
and scraping off the massive six foot windshield
Let's just say cold and crabby are the words for me
I would be so excited to tell you that today we put $180 towards our credit card debt
Literally I feel like I could run a marathon. So so excited
It's like a tiny little step towards becoming free of it all
Then I would probably be sure you know that I never
want to be that complaining person when it comes to money
Somehow I hope to balance optimism
Life is hard.
God is good.
Then I would probably ask if you remember my words for 2012
Surprisingly, I have been unbelievably encouraged by many people
Encouraging emails from you guys
Sweet comments, tweets, and posts
Then this beautiful, handwritten letter from a dear friend
I am humbled and blessed
And inspired to keep encouraging people
How much it does for one's spirit, we may never know
On an excited note, I would might just give you a sneak peek at
probably the biggest adventure I am embarking on this year.
An Etsy toy shop called Lottie Loves
Then again I may keep it a secret . . .
until the soon coming premiere
happening right here.
I would also probably share how
I am for this year.
I have so many dreams and it's fun to watch some of them start to grow
little by little.
On the subject of dreams
I would probably share how Hubs and I have been offered
an opportunity at our church to
help with highschool ministry
We are so excited and a bit scared
But really really thrilled that God would drop such an awesome
opportunity to get involved with the lives of teenagers.
The chance to do ministry together
investing in people's lives
is pretty awesome.
Then I would probably drag you by the hand around my house to show
you the super awesome thrift finds of the week.
Like another antique chair, some vintage patterns and old string
I have some pretty awesome projects up my sleeve.
Best part of this stuff?!
Two dollars and eighty-four cents.
Oh yeah. I also can't forget about these beautiful white plates
Sixty cents for the whole lot, yo.
The thrifting goddess has been smiling down on me lately.
Then I would probably wrap up the conversation with some random thoughts
Like how excited I am to redo this two dollar chair.
And how I've been so proud of myself for keeping up with my goals for January.
And how much I am adoring becoming a reader again.
And then of course how much I miss my sister best friend and cannot wait
for her to come home in just about four months.
And how much I love Husband for loving me so unconditionally.
And I would be sure to let you know how thankful I am for
You have made this blogging adventure so much more fun.
Thank you for that.
