a few things.

1. i adore this home tour.
like want to redo all my christmas stuff and copy her adore this home tour.
it's so pretty!


photo from here.  

2. i made these cookies today for the kids.
they are our favorite chocolate chip cookies.
and i've tried every recipe out there.
i don't flatten them that much, just a little.
it makes a ton of cookies so just freeze half the dough and use it later.

3. i am washing fabric to make pajama bottoms for the kids for Christmas.
i don't know why i feel the need to do this but i am gonna try.
am i a glutton for punishment or do i really think i can do this?
we're gonna find out.

4. i'm obsessed with the harry connick jr. holiday station on pandora.
tv--off.
harry--ON.

5. by the way, we leave in five days.
five days!
i think i'm ready.
oh gosh, who am i kidding?
i'm freaking out!
my mind is racing a jillion miles a second and fear is all up in my business.
so of course it makes perfect sense that i would open my daily devotional this morning and read this:

"Be willing to go out on a limb with Me. If that is where i am leading you, it is the safest place to be. Your desire to live a risk-free life is a form of unbelief. Your longing to live close to Me is at odds with your attempts to minimize risk. You are approaching a crossroads in your journey.  In order to follow Me wholeheartedly, you must relinquish your tendency to play it safe. Let Me lead you step by step..."

ouch.

"Your desire to live a risk-free life is a form of unbelief."

that hurt.
but i hear You.
i'm listening--i'm just a little shaky that's all.
five days.
praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ!
