7 Quick Takes with some cute pics

I'm linking up with Kelly at This Ain't The Lyceum   to give you this week's quick takes.  Are you ready?
Yesterday, a friend messaged me...
"Do you have power? I hope you have power with four kids and being pregnant"
I thought she meant it in a 'how do you do find the strength to do it?' way (conceited much?).
So I responded that it's not power, it's grace.
And she was like, 'Ha, but seriously, do you have power?'
And again, I went on to explain it was more like grace.
I even expanded up on it, and how it can be hard when Aaron comes home late, but it's do-able.

I woke up at 5:00 am this morning and realized. She was legit referring to electricity, and was totally confused as to why I wouldn't just directly answer the question.


\Aaron and I are doing Wednesdays with the Wilkersons on facebook live.
This Wednesday I was probably a bit too bitter to be talking about the subject of unappreciated women.
So I am sorry for the man bashing.
Is that better erik?!?!?!
(Erik felt it was too complain-y)

Up at 6:00 am for prayer daily. 
It has worked 5 of the last 7 days.
Pretty sure I am going to switch it up though.  It's hard to pray when I can't even open my eyes.  

John Paul with glasses (that are not his). 
I cannot

I spend my mornings with these two.
How lucky a I? Seriously.

I say lucky. But I have been really cranky this week.
I am hoping this weekend to really deep clean our three bedrooms in our house.
I feel like that will make me less cranky.
The messes in these rooms make me feel cranky every time I enter them.
I should not let them get as messy as they are.
It steals my happiness.
I am reading, 'Resisting Happiness'  Have you read it?  How good is it, for real? I am only on chapter 3, but I am really loving how it's opening up the idea of self-sabotage.

Can I tell you what I am getting REALLY excited about even though it's REALLY far away.
My three night hotel/hospital stay when I have this baby.
I love hospital vacations so much, that I seriously get excited.
I get excited about the lighting.
And the low beeping of machines.
The quiet of mama and baby time.
The 'pick up the phone and have food brought to me'.
I know so many women cannot relate, but man. I LOVE the hospital after birth. I would stay there a week if they'd let me. 

The reading doesn't have to stop here, head on over to http://thisaintthelyceum.org/ to read more quick takes!


  1. Those glasses are adorable :)

    And I'm totally with you on hospital vacations! I stay as long as they let me :)

  2. I'm so glad you're looking forward to your hospital vacation! I think if the bed at my hospital was actual comfortable (and not some weird lumpy horrible mattress), I would have enjoyed my stay more. Getting to call in food whenever the kitchen was open was awesome, though!
