Just a little bit of guns & dresses

Some self thought

Sorry I have been slacking on the Ole blog, but things have just been about crazy over here.  Lots and lots of different things going on. Plus, being a grown up is tough.  I definitely feel like I am in a crazy season. I have started house hunting and that is an experience in itself.  I am pretty sure that I have been in every dump and dive in the 29464 in the past month.  But I'm determined to get my own abode sometime in the future and live into my Pinterest fantasies.  This week I have had the pleasure of staying with 2 of the Senf girls.  It has been quite delightful.  And I kinda love em.  We've been doing some straight up chilling.  We chill with the best of them by the way.  One of my favorite parts is ending each day with this:
So each morning the alarm clock goes off at 5:50 am.  I cuss it and hit snooze.  The second one fires at 5:55 am.  I drag myself to Allie's room and wake her up.  Only to slip onto the recliner and sleep 10 more minutes... I am the perfect personal alarm clock:)  Each day, I have been going on evening walks. I get to do a lot of good self thinking.  Yesterday, I had a lovely visitor, but today I rocked it solo.  Which can sometimes be dangerous.  Today was ok though.  I had my new tunes on and was rolling.  Today I kept thinking about living on a rock.  What does that mean?  Well, I kept thinking that I wanted to be really intentional about building my life the way God wants me to.  I do a lot of things (99%) because I want to do them.  I often bypass even asking God about it.  I just go for it.  Well, I am going to really try and not do that.  This could be a tough one.  But, I think I can try a little harder.  I want to live and walk and operate in the Spirit.  Sorry if this freaks some of y'all out, but it has been on my heart big time.  I don't want to skate by on a wobbly foundation.  I want that sucker to be rock solid.  Word.  I don't want to become spiritually content or spiritually bored.  I want to always be on the journey.  Okay, this is sounding a bit cheesy, but I don't know how else to say it.  So while thinking about this I thought about thankfulness.  (I am also reading One Thousand Gifts so thankfulness is on my mind.)  I want to live in constant thankfulness.  So I am going to be more adamant in being thankful.  Today I am thankful for:

Iced coffee
John Legend
a good backwards hat
Sitting on the dock in march with my feet in the water and not freezing
wise people in my life
a good burned cd
being able to laugh at myself
Biz's wedding pictures

So there you have it.  I know this is a bit jumbled, but take it for what it's worth.

Make good choices,
