I’ve been loving the September 2016 edition of 30 Days of Lists! Today I’m sharing another batch of lists with you:

On My Camera Roll

  • Catch-up Reads photos
  • Picture of a drawing of our house Jonas’s “girlfriend” made

  • Post-dentist full family selfie sans [our foster daughter]

This weekend’s plans

  • Jonas dance
  • Dance in the Park
  • Art Westport
  • Avery’s birthday party


When things don’t go my way

  • I try to convince others / get my way anyway
  • When it’s out of my control and I’m upset, I focus on self care
  • I make the best of it
  • I consider the benefits of the other person’s way

On my calendar this year

  • Family appointments
  • Parties & events
  • Foster appointments
  • Birthdays
  • Holidays

  • PYY Discussion Q’s


Things that didn’t seem like a good idea at the time

  • Looking for a house when super pregnant
  • Spending money on a fancy camera
  • Switching majors
  • Blogging less

How I stay busy

  • I have 3 children

Lies I tell myself

  • Scrapbooking supplies are a business expense
  • My house will eventually be clean if I just figure out how to organize it
  • I’ll figure out what I want to be when I grow up

My best tips for marriage

  • Don’t argue hungry
  • Let the other person know if you are having a bad day so they handle you with kid gloves / don’t misinterpret tones
  • Talk about what you are interested in & vice versa–you’ll learn about each other’s fields

I feel in control of my life when

  • I make the schedule & have my calendar
  • I feel heard
  • I delegate
  • I can have some time alone

  • I remind myself I’m really not
