February Recap

Today is the last day of February! And you know what that means…time for a little re-cap!

I started off the month explaining why I’m limiting my facebook time to 15 minutes/day.

How to find liberty through limiting yourself. It really is possible!

A review of how my January goals went + my goals for February:

I’ve made & eaten #5 three times this week. I love it. My husband loves it. My daughter asked for seconds. Nate ate it all, but didn’t seem overly thrilled about anything but the boiled eggs. It’s seriously delicious.

And on Wednesday, I shared something God’s been teaching me about worry:

the future is as bright as the promises of God. Amen!!!

This morning, my husband is taking an exam + having an interview to see if he will be accepted into a Ph.D. program at a school in Kentucky. This is a big deal for a number of reasons – not the least of which is how God has completely changed my heart about the whole thing. We’re just taking things one step at a time and trusting God to clearly guide us as we pursue Him & His plan for our family. This is where He’s led us to today; we’ll see what tomorrow holds when we get there.

No need to worry about the final exam when He hasn’t even taught us the class yet, right? {example unashamedly pulled from Running Scared – a book I’m attempting to finish before March. I still have a few hours left. Pleeeeeenty of time.}

So what’s goin’ on with your weekend? Any feverish readers out there trying to finish a book before tomorrow? No? Just me?
Happy weekend, my friends!



  1. so would you have to move to Kentucky? NO!! All my Charlotte friends are moving away – I need you all to be there so I can come visit you all in one place and we can thrift and talk blogging together 😉

    You had some great posts this month – good balance between DIY and some heartfelt posts. 🙂 Sorry if I haven’t had time to comment on them all – I saw them all but usually read them on my phone and can’t comment from there.

    no, we wouldn’t be moving to KY! he would be able to take most of the courses online. 🙂
    and thanks so much for the kind compliment about this month’s posts!
