On My Mind

1. I do not think I could do this Whole Living Challenge. No dairy, sugar, coffee, gluten (pasta!!), or processed foods. It seems impossible to me. I love my cheese. I cannot imagine life without my morning coffee. Or pasta. And I am a very picky eater.

2. For that exact reason I want to do it. Just to prove myself wrong. And I think it would be a great way to try new foods, eat more veggies, and be healthier. I eat too much processed food and I think this would kick start a healthier lifestyle.

3. The weather has been in the 60s lately. That is insane! And I love it so much. We have been grilling and making the most of this tease of spring we are getting.

4. I made these Cheddar Biscuits a couple weeks ago when my family came over and they were amazing! They tasted just like the Red Lobster biscuits and were so easy to make!


5. So my next DIY project is taking longer than expected. It is more complicated than expected which is disappointing but I hope to have an update soon.


6. In other news, I want to do this project next from The Small Things Blog with World Market napkins. So pretty and simple!



7. Our small group has started the Hole in the Gospel study and it is amazing. It is all about having a passion for the poor and for our heart to break for what breaks God's heart. I think it is going to be a tough, but very influential study for us.


8. We have only read three chapters, but it has already had an impact on Garth and I. We read about the poverty in Uganda and then flipped on HGTV and it was a special on million dollar homes. How could we watch that after what we had just read?!


9. Everytime I hear James Taylor I think of my dad. I think they kinda look a like and my dad used to always sing "Fire and Rain" to me when I was young.

This weather is awesome! James Taylor makes me think of my mom because she is a big fan and he also makes me think of the hubby and MIL because they dance to "You've Got a Friend" at our reception. :)

we did the "hole in the gospel" series last Spring and it was very powerful! you'll be wanting to adopt an African baby by the time you're done!

No dairy? No sugar? No thanks! On a related note, those biscuits look awesome. I must try them :)

I was actually telling my husband I wanted to try a similar challenge sometime. If my baby doesn't outgrow his milk protein allergy we are going dairy free so I want to try it beforehand!

Amen amen amen to number 1! I LOVE my cheese and pasta. ;)I love hearing about your small group- it sounds like God is doing big things with it!

Crystal said...

I LOVE James Taylor. I had the chance to see him at Jazz Fest last time we were in NOLA but I passed...still regret it...3 years later.

Hey! I found out (about a year ago) that I am allergic to gluten. Pasta was my FAVORITE food in the entire universe, so I was slightly depressed over the news. BUT after eating gluten-free for a year now, I can tell you that it isn't as bad as it seems:) You will get used to it! There are some awesome gluten-free foods that taste great (pasta included). Good luck!
