things i love thursday! (january 19, 2012)

Happy Thursday, everyone! We are mere hours away from the weekend and I couldn’t be more excited. This week has been a bit tough, but it was still great. Here’s why!


  • Going out to dinner with Nikki and Chris. Hooray, carbs and friends!
  • Hearing Durrenbaby’s heartbeat again. Such a sweet sound.
  • The outpouring of love my husband and I received on Facebook and Twitter after going public with the pregnancy.
  • Spontaneous double lunch date with Zack and Sarah at Voodoo Dog, where I consumed arguably one of the tastiest burgers in my life.
  • Eating meat again, all for Durrenbaby.
  • Getting to Panama City to see Dayle, Zach, and their two-year-old boy Jasper!
  • Troll 2, AKA the WORST movie EVER.
  • Staying up way too late to have deep conversations.
  • Dayle and Jasper handing down a pair of little Chuck Taylors to Durrenbaby.
  • Waking up to the sounds of Jasper in his crib.
  • Delicious breakfast diner food.
  • Hearing Dayle excitedly tell all of her friends I’m pregnant.
  • Beauty and the Best in 3D!
  • Easy and delicious crockpot dinners.
  • Seeing Rupert Grint NOT be Ron Weasley for once.
  • Seeing my buddy Dayle lead worship. (See photo.)
  • Jasper trying desperately to say my name. (Jasper: “DaDa?” Zach: “Yes?” Jasper: *points at me and furrows his brow* “EEEEEEEEEEEEE?” Ha. Close enough for me!)
  • Extensive conversations about music.
  • Sweet surprises from my husband.
  • Nesting.
  • A trip to Gretna.
  • Our bible study potluck and weird phrases in Exodus.
  • Emily. Growing up too fast.
  • A second dinner with my husband and Lori.
  • New opportunities.
  • Finally (I hope) owning a cute cat that doesn’t spray everywhere.

And that’s all she wrote! What about you? What do you love this week?
