LISTENING to this beautiful cd. I love it, I love it, I love it. Can this be an advertisement, please? Seriously just go buy your own. My current favorite instrumental cd.

THINKING that I have been a horrible blogger lately. As in, nonexistent. (sorry, peoples! its life)

WISHING for a tan. but it seems to be successfully avoiding me. the other day I even scheduled a time to mow yard for my brother so I could get some sun whilst working + still being productive + helping him out. so much good rolled into one.
would you believe it, the mower died on me. DIED.
guess the tan was not meant to be yet. (sigh. #keepingitreal)

WATCHING our house slowly being transformed into a more clean + organized haven. we have been on a deep cleaning streak here-organizing + sorting + scrubbing + such.

DYING laughing over the marriage proposal my sister got in her email inbox.
in.her.inbox. don't even ask.
but seriously. some GUYS....

DRINKING water. and coffee. in constant rotation. =)

SMELLING farm smells. best ever.

LEARNING so much from the sermons at my church. seriously I just cannot thank God enough for giving me constant access to hearing so much truth expounded from the Word. it is such a blessing in my life.

TASTING pineapple meatballs from dinner. so yummy.

MISSING my sista love who is in the south visiting a friend.

READING Colossians. and still memorizing Philippians. love the abounding of truth. Its taking me a while but the memory is coming! slowly but surely....

DREAMING of the day when our new album will finally be finished + released and I will be able to sit back in my chair and eat chocolate bon bons and snooze (ahem) because there will be NO MORE deadlines for, um, a short while at least.

WORKING overtime so I can take off next week for my trip to Colorado! can't believe the insane amount of stuff that got accomplished this week. yay for finishing up projects + home improvement + garden work + stuff like that.
colorado, you are calling my name. #cannotwait

Happy Weekend!

    1. No, its different. I got it @ Cato four or five years ago. =)

  4. Too fun Chels! Love how you enjoy daily life. I'm dying with you-a proposal coming in your sister's inbox! Well I see your life truly is never dull!=) Blessings and hope to see you again in the near future.

  5. Such a fun post! I feel for your tanning woes, but I console myself with the fact that I now live in Canada, and unless one works out in the sun constantly, I'll just be white. :-P
    Have a lovely time in Colorado!
    Love you!

  6. I enjoyed this "currently" post! It gave me some smiles! =)

  7. Are you by chance going to the Set Apart Girl Conference in CO? :)

    1. No I'm not.
      I'm out here (Colorado) for a wedding!

  8. I wonder what the "proposer" would have thought had your sister responded to his proposal affirmatively via email: "Sure, are you free next weekend?" So many people go overboard with proposals--asking while skydiving, with a flash mob, etc...but via email...that would be something to remember in the happily ever after.

    I was chatting online with a random person I'd never met the other day and he asked me,
    "Would you ever marry an athiest?"

    "Is that a proposal?"

    "Sure, if you want it to be."

    It was all in good fun, but at that point I chickened out...which I almost regret--next time I might not blink so fast. Don't ask me how I get such cruel thoughts (or how I stay out of trouble).

    Fun post, Chels! (And I'll be hoping you get to enjoy the chocolate and bonbons soon!) Blessings to you!
