I saw several bloggers following this awesome idea from a girl and a glue gun and thought it would be great fun.  I love getting to know everyone better and hope others want to play along.  Just go to her page,copy and paste, and link back to her

MAKING:  I will give you 2 guesses - give up...stairs.  Also decorations for an upcoming surprise party

COOKING:  Salmon and veggies for me and the Honey.  Our kids run screaming when we have fish, it's a great way to clear the house.  Hahaha. 

DRINKING:  Cucumber water by the gallon!!  Seriously - try it.  Put about 15 to 20 slices of cuke in a gallon of water and keep in the fridge.  Super refreshing!


I am about halfway through - it is different than the more recent in this series, more like the older ones.  But all are really good!!

WANTING:  New bedroom furniture
Maybe something like this
But I cannot decide - and it is too hot to shop.

LOOKING:  Through incredible blogs and swooning!!

PLAYING:  Like I can DIY

WASTING:  as little as possible  - remember the R's!!

SEWING:  Nothing right now - but youngest wants a tee-shirt quilt from all her cheer shirts.  I keep pretending she did not ask.

ENJOYING:  Our first taste of empty nest - youngest is gone for 2 weeks.  It is a wonderful time for just me and the honey!!

PRAYING:  for my family - always!!  God has truly blessed me in the family department

WAITING:  for paint to dry - literally!!

LIKING:  That this opened this week  - 10 minutes from my house!!

WONDERING:  How time passes soooo quickly!!  If I could figure that out - I could figure out how I always fall behind on things!!

LOVING:  (see PRAYING)  and on a lighter note

Dremel 6300-03 Multi-Max Oscillating Tool Kit
the handiest tool - EVER!!

HOPING:  That I will finish the stairway to.... (you know) this week.

MARVELLING:  That my girls have grown into young ladies that I call friends.  They are sooo uniquly different from each other and yet still good friends - always there for each other
