Twofer Tuesday–Realizations and Pipedreams
Two Favorite Search Terms That Lead People to my Blog
#1. Treadmill program for Squash
Sorry, no training plans for those of the squash/gord/pumpkin kind here!
#2. Will a tic tac melt if it gets stuck up your nose?
Yes! A raisin, notsomuch.
Two Books I’m Reading
I finished this book last night, and if I were one to sit and read for a few hours, am sure I could have read it in a day. It was SO good, and really forced me to sit and think about how it’s awesome that I am able to depend on Scripture to help guide my reactions to less-than-pleasant situations.
#2. After turning the last page in Unglued, I promptly began my next book, Heart of the Matter:
I’m only a few chapters in, but Emily Giffin has never disappointed, and I’m excited for this light and fluffy fictional read. The only one of her books I haven’t read is Baby Proof because I don’t know if I can relate. Has anyone read Baby Proof who doesn’t have a baby/isn’t around babies all the time?
Two Things I Realized This Week
#1. That I don’t have to let my situations define me (see: book I finished this week.) One of the lines that really stuck out to me in Unglued is this one:
I can face things that are out of my control, and not act out of control.
And it shouted to me that I who I am not from my daily situations, or even how I handle those situations, but the fact that I *can* and am able to react positively to those situations.
#2. When in doubt, make a list.
Lists can take a scrambly mess of a day and give it some sense of structure. I like that.
Two Foods I’ve Been Loving
#1. Three words: bacon. wrapped. dates.
I made these as part of our half time spread for game day this past Sunday. They’re SO damn easy to make, too!
#2. Toasted baguette
Shane and I have become obsessed with toasting baguette and dipping it in melted brie cheese. Obsessed!
Two of My Current Pipe Dreams
#1. Million Dollar Rooms (on HGTV)
I’m a big fan of this show, but I would LOVE to have this guy give me his house. Or at lease his guest quarters.
#2. To be an avid skier!
Right now I don’t even like to ski (but I’ve only tried in Wisconsin, lol) so this might not come true
Your turn! What’s one of you current pipe dreams?
