Simple Woman's Daybook *New Year Edition* #3

Welcome to the January Edition of the Daybook

FOR TODAY (1:43AM - 1/5/13)

Outside my window... Dark and starry night that has a nip in the air... or rather IT'S COLD!

I am thinking... great about the new year! New baby, new outlook, new goals, LOVE IT!

I am thankful... that I have my husband to lean on when I need him. I'm thankful that he loves me unconditionally!

In the kitchen... IT'S CLEAN! So thankful (again) to my mother who helped me clean the kitchen during the holiday. And even though the counters are full of stuff, it's a great start to help me keep it clean and organized.

I am wearing... Sweats and the Tee from La Placita that I got during the DIAMOND DIVE! Check out this short CLIP of the event I participated in (while pregnant), and a sweater cus it's freaking cold outside!

I am creating... Great memories with our little Annaleah everyday. She's now 5 MONTHS OLD! And love her to death!

I am going... to stay home this weekend. Even though I really wanna go to the Farmer's Market and support them.

I am wondering... Not sure... I guess, I'm wondering if this year is going to go as smoothly as I'd like. So much to do, excited, nervous and hope it goes well.

I am reading... THE BIBLE! Yes, it's one of my "silent" resolutions this year. I've NEVER read it cover to cover. I wanna find a smaller one, but I'm cheap, so I'm using the big "family," "pretty" bible that we have.

I am hoping... That I have a chance to take a shower in the morning before everyone wakes up!

I am looking forward to... Annaleah's Baptism. We're going to register her for the next class on Sunday.

I am learning... How to follow through with things that I set out to do/accomplish. It feels great. Been working on the dining room. IT'S A MESS! It's probably going to take till March to get it finished.

Around the house... the Christmas tree is still up and we'll probably have it up until the 10th. That's the day I have "scheduled" to have it taken down.

I am pondering... How to get healthy to start the journey to TTCing

A favorite quote for today... “I am realistic – I expect miracles.” ― Wayne W. Dyer

One of my favorite things... Baby giggling!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Get some video editing done!

A peek into my day...

  3. I loved the utube how fun! Your daughter is so cute!!

    I am going to read the bible this year as well, my husband has read/listened to it 4 times now! He also is going to Seminary so it really is no shock for for me.

    Thanks for posting on my blog, the Paleo book I have is really just the best. I would love to hear how it works out if you do buy it.


  4. What a beautiful baby! You can't go wrong reading your Bible through this year. It's so full of wonderful nuggets of gold.

  5. Your baby is so precious! What a cutie!

    What version of the Bible are you looking for? If you are in Miami, I would not mind sending you one. I have so many! Working at a church, I have my share of Bibles that I keep and give out to people. If you would like me to send you one, let me know and I will send it along! You can email me at
