So I had great intentions of blogging about all the fun things we’re doing during our 30 days. And I have a little. I shared about going to Graceland, our trip to the DR, our Italy Memories Night, and going to the Civil Rights Museum & down to the arts district. But that’s all I’ve shared on the blog. And on Instagram I shared a picture from a bookstore date night, a family walk, some thrift store shopping, and a snapshot from the Renaissance Faire. I’ve also put up a couple of pictures of some of the food we’re making, but there is just so much more that I haven’t managed to share yet. I plan to share all the recipes we really enjoyed in individual posts, but so much of the fun stuff we’ve been doing can easily be shared in list form. Soooo… here ya go!
Other Fun Things We’ve Been Up To:
-Bowling (cosmic bowling of course. With the black lights and disco ball)
-Lots of family walks
-Hitting up the gym together
-Lazy nights in watching sitcom reruns with take out Chinese
-Played Wii Mario Kart (we haven’t played this in years and Christopher is still crazy good at it. He’s weirdly incredible with hand-eye coordination)
-Watched a couple of really great movies (a whole blog post coming on this!)
-Downtown to the Orpheum to see Gone With the Wind on the big screen
-Thrift Store Shopping
-Renaissance Faire (a whole blog post coming on this very soon!)
-Too many trips to frozen yogurt (Menchies is our fav because they have great sugar free flavors for me!)
-Board Games & Coloring in coloring books (because the child in us loves it)
We’ve also spent a lot of time talking about future plans (home renovation, career things, volunteer work, etc). I’ll be honest, I thought I knew “for sure” which things I really wanted to do. But after this time of prayer and more discussion, I’m finding that I’m not as sure. And that’s probably good for me, ha! I’ll share more on this as we make decisions.
We also started a new daily devotional during these 30 days, but we just couldn’t take the cheesiness of it (it was a daily devotional to help build marriages and really took a lot of scriptures out of context) and quit it last week. So we’ve switched to reading through the book of James for the rest of this week since that’s what we’re studying at church. After that we’re switching to the SheReadsTruth & HeReadsTruth app/website to study the book of Daniel. I love studying scripture with Christopher and being challenged by God’s word. And I especially love that we have plenty of time every night to do this instead of trying to cram it in after we get home from wherever we’ve been before we crash in bed. 🙂
Travel Coming Up
This week we leave for NYC and we are super excited about it! We are also a little sad that our 30 days is coming to a close, but this trip will be the perfect way to end it! We’re just hoping that we both manage to stay healthy on this trip, ha!
So all in all, the 30 days has been AWESOME! A few more blog posts on the fun things we’ve been doing are coming soon! And plenty of delicious recipes will be up on the blog soon. 🙂
Have you played the Wii lately? It is sooo 2007-2009. 😉 But we still have our Wii. I’m glad we brought it out last night. We had fun!
Do you have a favorite frozen yogurt shop?
Any recommendations for a good daily devotional or Bible study? Most of the really great ones I’ve seen have been geared toward women. Which is great for me, but we like to study together sometimes, too.
