I’m making monthly goals instead of yearly ones this year. Here are my goals for January:

Some things I’ve learned about thankfulness:

sometimes all it takes is a little change in perspective to see how much we really have.

5 recipes I’ve made and they’ve all turned out super delicious. In fact, I just made #1 again on Wednesday.

A little tour of my master bedroom:


and my bathroom:


If you haven’t made these S’mores in a Pan yet…just do it. I’ve made them 3 times since posting the recipe. The fact that they’re so easy is both a blessing & a curse. Good thing I have some maternity pants in my closet. kidding. kind of. not really. nevermind.

S'mores {in a pan} - 3 ingredients, NO mixing, & only 1 pan for clean-up! Soo delish!!!

something I’ve been meditating on during my day-to-day responsibilities as a wife & momma:

Serve Jesus by serving others.

I guest posted over at Christina’s blog about how I organize my spices. Lemme tell ya – this has made my cooking/baking life so much easier. Not exaggerating.

LOVE this idea! Organizing your spices using an over the door shoe holder! Perfect for different bottle/jar sizes!

I read a book for pastor’s wives & was greatly encouraged by it. Here’s a review I posted on Leah’s blog:

excellent book written for Pastor's wives - if you're looking for the Biblical definition of a pastor's wife, this is a must read!

I cannot believe I’ve been blogging for 3 years. I should have made a cake for myself.


I have yet to pop the questions from link #1 to my man. He’s been sick this past week, so I decided that was not the greatest timing. But I’m looking forward to talking about them on an upcoming date night.

And that’s a wrap!

I don’t know about your week, but this has been an unusual one for us. My man has been sick and home from work for a couple days – which never happens. It has made me super thankful for good health! I’ve also been a hand-washing, vitamin-taking maniac both for myself and my kids. I’m praying we will all stay well & not catch whatever nastiness Jonathan caught. I found a supplement last week that I’ve been giving my 2 older kids. Hoping it keeps them healthy!

How about you? Any sickness floating around? How do you keep your family healthy during this cold/flu season?
