Status Update

I saw this idea on Elizabeth's blog the other day and decided to be a copy-cat!

at my kitchen table finishing up some lunch and reading a few blogs.

Drinking... sweet tea with lemon. 

Listening... to nothing. I like silence.

Drawing a blank... about what to do for the next 1.5 hours until the afternoon madness begins. Clean? Rest? Read? Blog? (Clearly blogging won!)

Hoping... to feel better soon. I seem to have caught Abbey's cold from last week.

Refusing... to take medicine. I have a weird hang-up about putting meds in my body. 

Amazed... at the unseasonably warm temps we're having this week. SO ready for spring.

Eager... for the weekend.

Trying to decide... between chicken noodle soup and enchiladas for dinner. Hmmmmm... (either way the chicken is prepped and ready!)

Currently reading... NOTHING. I'm very open to suggestions though! FYI, I decided not to finish Breaking Dawn. My Bunco friend told me how it ended and I realized I'm not going to miss anything by not finishing it. 

Loving... the sunshine! the Vera Bradley bag that John's mom gave me for Christmas! the white chocolate coconut creamer I bought for my coffee! and my church! (we had an amazing Ash Wednesday service last night.

Not loving... my dog who can't decide if he wants to stay IN or OUT. 

Spending... the next forty days without Starbucks. 

Wondering... how Will did in his spelling bee today. I didn't get to go!!!


John said...

"Chicken noodle soup!" he passionately exclaimed.

Passionately exclaimed? Oh my.

Carpool Queen said...

I was going to say enchiladas, but I'm not going to get between you and John's passion.

Stephanie @ My Answered Prayer said...

Just think you'll have a lot more $$ without Starbucks! It was 70 here today...felt so good! Hope you feel better soon!

Unknown said...

I had chicken noodle soup tonight. Progresso. from a can. Wish I was at your house.

The kids had Mac N Cheese from a box. They probably wish they were at your house too!

The Mister is having dinner out with the pastor from our church...He was grateful to read John post yesterday. He's probably telling the pastor "no" as we speak.

No Starbucks?...i'll join you on that one. (Did i just say that?)

Yup. I did.

Teri H said...

I got some of that White Chocolate Coconut creamer too... it is SO GOOD!

Tiffani said...

It must "white chocolate coconut creamer" week! Cause I just bought it too!!!

I think I may have to do this one too...'s my suggestion have you read the "mark of the lion" trilogy by francine rivers?? The first on is called "A Voice in the Wind"...the series absolutely changed's AMAZING!

I'm with you on the meds...

And, which Vera bag did you get??? I love some of the new prints out for Spring!

Cathy said...

I love reading things like these! I'm breaking from writing on my blog and cutting down computer time mucho, but still grabbing snipits of time to read a few:)

I totally refused the meds with my cold too.

but starbuck?! you're brave.

Brenda said...

I'm the same way with silence. As much as I am a music lover, especially worship music, I would rather just have silence.

Elizabeth said...

I love it! And I feel the same way about so many of these things, especially the silence and the upcoming weekend. Both are things I need so badly right now:)

Anonymous said...

Yum! That coffee creamer sounds really really good! :D

Jennifer said...

I thought of you and Starbucks today actually. I had some coupons for JCPenney's and went up to our local outdoor 'mall'. I like it better then an indoor one. Anyhoo, I stopped by Kohl's and they had all their Starbuck's Valentine sets (who knew there were Starbuck sets....LOL) on clearance for 75- 90% off. This one set had two gigantic mugs with two bags of coffee on sale for $4.45! If you lived near me........

How was the soup? I'm assuming John got his soup. LOL

So which Vera bag did you get? You'll have to snap a picture. :)

Melissa said...

I love Vera Bradley. Yes, you'll have to show us a picture of the one you got.

Have you read The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society? I really enjoyed that. Edgar Sawtelle is good, too.

Lauren said...

Oh, I loved this idea :) And girl, I'm a Vera Bradley fanatic!!!!!

Becca~CapturingSimpleJoys said...

I too am amazed at our temps this winter. Been really nice!
Your friend was correct about Breaking Dawn, you're not missing much. Got really wierd.

Jackie said...

Yes and amen to putting medicine in my body. I know sometimes it's necessary, but more often than not, I think we can do without. I'm so glad to hear someone else say this!

So which was it...soup or enchiladas?

Michele said...

I'm with you on loving listening to silence . . . and I have a weird hang-up about medicines too. I vote enchiladas (although it's too late now). I am currently reading the Mitford series and I love it! Hope Will did well in his spelling bee. Have a great weekend Meredith!
