It’s Wednesday and that means we are all about sharing what we are waiting on! I was seriously waiting on Wednesday after a long weekend and honestly almost skipped right over this linkup thinking it was TUESDAY! Link-up your post with Royally Waiting and share what’s going on in your world.
Tin Cup….do you ever just see an old movie and totally forget how hot you thought an actor was? Good grief Kevin Costner just makes me swoon. I really think The Bodyguard is the only movie he’s ever starred in that I didn’t see. Maybe it’s just the fact that he’s in so many baseball movies that I adore him but watching Tin Cup this week reminded me I think he’s adorable.
I did splurge a little over the weekend and indulged in a few beers and some fried shrimp but other than that I kept my eating on point. Cutting out heavy carbs and my daily chips and hot sauce and too many sweets hasn’t been the end of the world. I am still eating really, really good food and lots of protein so no feeling hungry. Here is a little sample of my breakfast, lunch and snacks for a week.
I am loving this book! It is an easy read and I’m fairly confident I know how the love story piece is going to turn out but the twist and turns along the way have definitely kept me interested! Do any of the rest of you feel like there are just so many books and so little time?!!
Jesus! I think Easter is always the time when the height of our passion for Jesus culminates and it is hard not to become a little emotional. If you missed it, I shared a little about Why Jesus is my Favorite on Friday!
I can keep the two beautiful twisted hibiscus plants I picked up from Sam’s club alive! They are currently covered in blooms and have survived the week so I’m optimistic. I seriously have zero green in my thumb but a friend promised me these would be different….yikes! I also spent way too much on some gorgeous blue pots to plant them in!
Patiently waiting on several home projects. Next week we have landscapers coming to update our front beds and I could not be happier. Driving up to the house and seeing some curb appeal makes me happy! In the 13 years we have lived in our house rooms have been painted here and there but I’m at a point where I really just need it all done; woodwork, doors, walls, everything fresh all at once. I’ve tried several grays but so far the right one has not surfaced but I’m hopeful this Revere Pewter will be the one. Isn’t it crazy how the lighting in your house can make such a difference?!
I’m also looking for a little more functionality in our “drop off” area. We do not have a transitional space from the garage to the kitchen which means when my friends walk in the backpacks, shoes, purses, wallets, etc are all dumped on the bar or the kitchen table. Currently we have an old china hutch of my grandmothers in the breakfast area but I’m thinking of having something built in similar to the picture below. I’m thinking I would add a bench in the middle with bead board and hooks behind for backpacks and such. It’s my vision anyway…they would probably still toss the backpacks on the floor!
And yes, I am STILL waiting for that new couch to arrive!!
Now it’s your turn….what are you waiting for?
