Monday Madness December 6, 2011

Ok, so it has been like almost a month now since I last posted… For all of you out there who follow me (I am assuming there are some of you…) I am so sorry if you have been checking my blog in anticipation for the next inspirational or intriguing post by yours truly. I have no excuse. I’m STILL learning to balance all my crazy wants/needs/desires/coulds/shoulds while being a mama. I think of you often, honestly, I do! Like my husband CONSTANTLY tells me, I need to write a list. Everyday.

So, usually Mondays are supposed to be “Monday Munchies” (as of one other time…) with a new recipe I have tried, but today I am telling you about the “madness” that has been/is my life currently. Not necessarily a “good” or “bad” madness… just aaalllllll the things that I am behind sharing with you.

To start out, we are looking to move. NOT one of my favorite things to do, but I love to rearrange and start fresh. However, we have yet to find a place and that is one of the most stressful parts (for me anyway). We are looking at a house to rent tomorrow morning and I am so hoping it is the one. I am tired of looking and wondering if it should be the one. You know? I am always wondering if I am too picky, or need to be ok with less comfort. I just want the answer to be clear! Maybe it’s like getting married. You know when it’s the right one… I can at least dream of such things.

Mathias is becoming more and more like a little boy and less like a baby. Good and sad. He is so awesome. I love his little personality. He is goofy, quiet, sweet, observant, snuggly, wild, sneaky, and smart. He hates wearing shoes, loves books, loves balls, eats smoothies everyday, loves raisins, loves outside, hates when Poppa leaves, loves dancing, and smiles big, cheesy grins.

I am working on growing my art repertoire (thanks to Pinterest— another technical advancement taking up too much of my time, but full of awesome ideas!). I want to try and sell some paintings and things from home. Let me know if you would like to buy some art for a Christmas present for family or friends! (: Don’t worry, I won’t start self-advertising on here… too much.

We have been having wonderful conversations and fellowshipping with beautiful souls. Friends that are cherished intimately. We are so blessed. There are babies to be born, commitment to be vowed, and food and art to be created!

I have been getting creative with squash lately and that has been fun! I will share some recipes soon. I hope you are all having a wonderful December already and not stressing about any holiday preparations, but enjoying your amazing lives every day. I am going to work on not procrastinating (:

Love, Alisha
