post lite

Recently I've been serving up some pretty full-bodied posts, so thought I'd give you a "post lite!"

M bolted through the kitchen the other day (as fast as a toddler can bolt), and I asked, "Where are you going?" Without missing a beat, he answered, "Home Depot!"

I just got this new workout video and chose it specifically because it is broken down into five 10 minute sections. With M's nap being so short, I need a quick fix...I just do a section here and there. So far I like it and, while I haven't felt the "pain", I am seeing a little "gain." But the unexpected blessing in it all is that between the sections you have time to grab a handful of Robin Eggs Easter candy! You know, just in case you need some extra protein....because eggs are protein.


Pray Big for Your Marriage by Will Davis, Jr. is a book I am currently reading. LOVE IT! I seriously suck at praying, and this book offers the guidance I need. I know...praying should be as easy as talking to someone you love because you are talking to Love Himself, but it's just really difficult for me. This book is helping me be diligent in seeking God for my marriage.

Speaking of talking, I recently got a phone call from a CELEBRITY! Yes, THE Stefanie of Ni Hao Y'all rang me up the other day! Now let me say that I suck at talking on the phone (hmmm...notice a pattern with my rotten communication skills). For some reason I never know when it is my turn so I am either silent (awkward) or interrupting (awkward and rude), and I pretty much just hate it. BUT...it was THE Stefanie of Ni Hao Y'all, so I sucked it up and answered my phone. Let me just say that she is even more gracious and wonderful "in person" than I imagined. PLUS, if you don't already know, she is headed back to China for her FIFTH ADOPTION (nine children total)...she is utterly remarkable.

Soon we will be trippin' out to CA for M's first time at the beach! Some dear friends have blessed us with their time share, so we are EXCITED!!! I used to live in San Diego, and I miss it dearly so going back gets me all hyped up...or did I just eat too many Robin Eggs?

Here are some pics I took this morning. M is just way too fast for me. He will not hold his head still for even a half-second. So I got some soft photos, but I really like them! He looks handsome in his outfit, which we bought while in Taiwan.


this is what i get when i say "SMILE!":

Okay, so I'm truckin' along, through your post, giggling about the robin's eggs and wondering if it's true. Then I'm thinking I need to get that book (btw, do I?? It sounds awesome, just what we've been emailing about!) and THEN, whaaatttt??
You are making me sweat, girl! Pit Stain City!!! I SO loved our talk the other day and you, in fact, are not ONE BIT AWKWARD... whatchootalkinbout??
Looking forward to talking again soon, when I'm not sweating quite so profusely.
Love you, my friend.

HeHe. I love the "smile" picture! Your baby is really turning into a handsome little boy.

I'm thinkin I need to get that book and video. 10 minutes...now that's my kind of workout. :)

dan and rachel said...

the smile pic is great. jude has a similar prompted "smile". nicole from http://korenskyjourney.blogspot.com/ gave me the stellar idea of hiding a stuffed animal in my shirt and popping it out for pics. it really does make the kids laugh!

your post was fun! keep up the working out (and the popping of robin eggs!)

Rebecca said...

"Hot Body Boot Camp"??? I busted out laughing when I saw that. :) I couldn't help it. Workout videos have the CHEESIEST names.

The photos of M... GORGEOUS. GORGEOUS. GORGEOUS. I love the one of him in the mirror... you have such an artistic eye. You got mad SKILLZ. (Not to mention you are so CHILL.)

xoxo

The pictures of M are gorgeous as usual! :) He does look crazy handsome in that outfit!

I also COMPLETELY suck at talking on the phone!!! It makes me SO nervous that I do exactly what you said that you do.......AND I never know when the conversation is over and when it is over how to end it without sounding like I just hung up on the person or being overly-nice about it (resulting in a 15 minute goodbye). I have concluded that I need visual cues to have a conversation- I'm not socially astute enough to go without them! :) So- you aren't alone in hating the phone!!!

He's as delicious as those Robin Egg's Easter candy.

I can't wait to see the pictures you'll take while on the beach! I have a soft spot for beach pictures being a Florida-girl and all.

Lisa said...

Thanks for the smile!
