We are STILL waiting to hear if we got the acreage we keep dreaming about.  It’s a judicial sale, so we need to wait until the offer makes itself to court.  In the meantime, seeing as all other home projects in our current home are on hold, I am going completely stir crazy hoping that 1. the court approves the offer and 2. no one else puts in a better offer!  It’s hard not to think about every day and still keep my heart guarded (and not be moving in with my thoughts!).  The property checks off nearly every one of our “wants” so if this place isn’t for us, I cannot wait to see what else God would have for us!

Included in my checklist of desired features (along with a mountain view and fireplace) is a wrap around porch.  And yessssss …. this place has it!!  Gah!  Again, I am trying not to get too excited, but how can I not?!?  Any which way, I’ve been thinking a lot about that porch and here are only SOME of the dreamy inspiring porches that have my head spinning!

    our [lately] in pictures. » Sarah Nadine Blog - […] to drive, we’ve been getting OUT to say the very least!  Additionally, as I mentioned in a previous post, we are in a unique situation and there is a very high *possibility* that we could soon be moving […]ReplyCancel

PIN1. I LOVE the show Fixer Upper like nobody’s business.  There, I said it.

2. Being able to drive is a privilege I never want to take for granted.  Not driving for 6 weeks reminds you of that.

3. I need to talk with my grandmas more.  I need to compile a list of things I want to know about them.

4. Having a broken foot, getting h1n1, and breastfeeding all while taking care of a sick husband and 3 sons … not the most winning of combinations.

5. The fact that it actually felt like spring this month is again a miracle.  I could get used to liking this season called spring.

6. God really is out to take care of me and all my needs.  Regardless of what is going on, He is there (whether I acknowledge Him or not) keeping my best interests close.  He is such a good, good Father.

7. You can plant daffodil bulbs really deep in fall then not only will they surface the next spring, but also, the spring following that one (surprise, Sarah).

8. Not that it was new to me this month, but I was reminded of the great support system around me with friends and family, but nothing beats the anchor my husband has been – especially lately.

9. For being so anti “e-reading” (I love books – holding, smelling, feeling, reading them), I have been loving getting through books on my iPad.  Something I never thought I would say …

10. Finishing knitting projects with kids around is not for the faint of heart.  Still trekking along on my scarf(!).

    Calista - I have a crocheting project that I have yet to start. I’ll get there, but I have until May 19th to do it! That’s the date when it needs to be in Hawaii for my nephew’s first birthday by, so I’d better get hopping!

    March sounds like quite a month for you and yours and I hope you are all on the mend. I am thankful your rock of a husband is standing by your side. xo xo xoReplyCancel

      sarah nadine - let’s just say, it’s a month/season that we are happy to be through! thankfully, we are doing MUCH better now – especially now with a bit of freedom and our sun shining weather 🙂
      i find the projects that i don’t give away are the ones that get put on the back burner (i.e. this scarf!). i’m trying to finish it before i start another knitting project (even though i’ve already bought the yarn for it, ha!). i hope you get yours done in time.
      thanks for always coming around to see what’s going on over here … look forward to your comments! xoReplyCancel

PINBesides last night, every evening this week consists of hockey (of sorts).  Matt is in 2 tournaments until Sunday and there’s also a Flames game he is going to one of the nights.  I feel a bit bombarded with the sport this week, and am sensing this may only be a glimpse IF all three of our boys end up playing hockey <gulp>.  Before I get to ahead of myself(!), we are just going to enjoy this week and it’s focus among other things …

. our preschool theme this month is spring – go figure!  planning a few activities in that department.

. start up some seeds (we’ll be eating lots of eggs this week!)

. we went to a garage sale this weekend and I SCORED on housewares big time … always on the hunt for new ideas, now with my new items, for the home.

. get a bone scan done – now that it’s been 6 weeks, I am hoping I can take this air cast off and drive!  it’s been a bit stir crazy over here.

. hoping to get more sleep than last week.

. making travel plans for this upcoming conference … I am SO excited!

. taking pictures for my friend’s new shop – she’s got THE cutest bibs!

. day-dreaming about butler pantries.

. living outside in this gorgeous weather!

. oh, and laundry … that’s never off the list.

Happy week, friends!

    Fawne - So good to hear a bit about what you’re up to. I read this post once quickly and then again to really soak it all in. Missing you.ReplyCancel

PINSeriously, how can my wee babe already be FIVE MONTHS??  I get all choked up, thinking how quickly his first year is already going and at times, all I want to do is document it all – take video upon video, snap photo after photo, journal thoughts … then, I remember that I just need to enjoy the moments and live in them.  So, amidst the teary times, you can find me over here, drinking in this sweet boy.

It’s been a while since Mama let me talk over here, so some of these things may come as a shock to you.  For instance, how big I really am.  Though my age on paper says I’m five months old, my clothing age is telling me different.  My sleepers are 12 month old sleepers and Mama says that both my brothers were walking when they wore the clothes I am wearing now.  Either I really am big, or I am behind with walking (just kidding, I know it’s because I’m big!).

word of inspiration: samples of spring

source of word:  It’s been a beautiful winter, and now beautiful spring … I feel like we’ve had more than just samples of spring, we’ve had a gorgeous spring – full on!  When I see the word “spring” in my mind, I actually see a little lamb with a green wreath standing beside an old wood post.  white lamb.  fresh green wreath.  grey reclaimed wood post.  You see where I’m going with this …
