May 6, 2014

We're seven days into May now and so far it's mostly been really good! These mornings are feeling more like summer all the time.

Currently, I am...

cooking: lots of salad, old favorites (tacos, waikiki meatballs, baked alfredo, hamburgers, etc.), and I'm dreaming of grilling everything. Actually, I'm dreaming of someone else grilling everything because I'm a terrible griller. 

reading: In the Bible I'm landing in 2 Corinthians. I've been reading The Westing Game with my brother and sister. Shauna and I just finished What Mrs. McGullicudy Saw by Agatha Christie. On Saturday, I started a review copy of "One More Last Chance".

wearing: my maxi dresses and light summer skirts. It's still a little chilly, but I'm going for it!

loving: the time I get to spend in my gardens again, the excitement that *16* is bringing in my sister's life, and the special times I get to have with my friends and family. I just want to hug everyone and never let go. :) 

anticipating: I'm trying hard to just take one thing at a time. This balancing act is soooo hard for me! Right now I'm really looking forward to going to a play (the Wizard of Oz) with my family soon. 

You can join in the current fun by heading over to Jenna and Anne's blogs! 


  1. yay for maxi dresses, sunshine, tried & true recipes, family love, and more! it looks like you're having a LOVELY currently life.
    ALSO wizard of oz = yes!!
    and girl, the balancing act of life is always a challenge

  2. Haha, I love that you are "dreaming of someone else grilling everything". I'm the same way!
    Oh, and I've been looking for a really nice maxi dress for summer. Cotton ones look pretty terrible on me since they cling and I'm a bit too curvy for that. Any recommendations?

    Thanks for linking up!

  3. A really big salad sounds delicious!

  4. I read the Westing Game years ago and was so fascinated by it! The twists and turns keep you guessing until the end!

  5. I love it when grilling season comes around again - partly because it's tasty, partly because it means my husband takes over a chunk of the dinner prep that way, since he's in charge of the grill :) Thanks for linking up!

  6. I just got my first maxi skirt and I'm obsessed. I'm dreamin' of grilling, too!

  7. I've wanted a maxi dress of skirt for a loooong time now it's not even funny. Do you have any recommendations for where to get them? :) And I'm loving the idea of a grilled dinner! That makes my mouth water just thinking about that summer must for me and my family.

    Also, those photos are so pretty! I love how bright and spring-y they are. :)

  8. the westing game sounds like an interesting read! i'm always looking for book recommendations. my favorite agatha christie book was "and then there were none". i remember thinking it was both incredibly good and scary/thrilling at the same time. i would recommend it!

  9. Haha, I'm the same way with grilling. Not only does it make for some delicious summer meals, but it's also my excuse to pass off some of the cooking to my husband. ;) We don't really have our own grill right now though, so I'm going to have to figure this out...


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
