What I'm Loving Wednesday

One month from right now my arms will be full of love.  Isaac will finally see what I mean by red dirt.  I'll be surrounded by family and friends and ready to be Jesus' hands and feet for three weeks.  A month seems so short, and yet, it can't get here soon enough!!

I'm loving Almond Naturally More Almond Butter.  I've been putting it on bananas, apples, trading it out for peanut butter in PBJs, and pairing it with a sliced banana and multi-grain waffle.  Yum!

I love that Isaac and I treated ourselves to ice cream last night simply because we ate ALL the veggies I cooked.  I sometimes still struggle with textures of my foods, especially certain veggies.  I know veggies are good for me, and I want to eat them.  But sometimes, it's just dang hard.  The taste rarely gets me; it really is just textures.  That's pretty pathetic for a 28 year old, but that's how it is.  Last night was one of those hard nights, so we declared it time to use a Sonic gift card I'd received from a student.  :)

I love that buying tickets to go see Josh Groban was such a complete flashback to high school.  Ha.  I realized that the first CD of his I bought was from 2001.  Twelve years later, I'm still buying his music, and apparently spending ridiculous amounts of money to take my mom and grandparents to go see him in November.  Isaac isn't a fan, so he'll be at home with the pups.  I personally think Isaac's just a tad jealous that I always claimed Joshie-Poo was my 2nd choice for a husband (the joke was that the first choice was whoever I married...).  Mom and I went to see Josh in August of 2004.  It was a hot, sticky, muggy night, but oh so fun!  November 12th will be a great night too!

I love that my parents' month long cruise is officially half over.  Not getting to talk with my mom for this long is doing me in!  I've never gone more than a day or two without texting, emailing, calling, or seeing my mom. This has been emotional torture!  It does look like they're having fun though!  Sunday will be their 40th anniversary.  :)

Kaitlin has been a dear friend since 2005.  Her now husband was a friend from high school, and he knew she and I both suffered from endometriosis and thought we needed each other.  He was right.  Anyway, thanks to the Army, we haven't seen each other in something like five years.  She texted this week that she'll be in town to see Josh's family this summer, and the visit won't overlap with Zambia.  Alleluia!  Let the good times roll (as we poke the baby rolls on her two munchkins!)!

I love my Jesus!

What are you loving this week?

Linking up with Jamie.

Have you tried roasting vegetables? That's our favorite way to eat pretty much any vegetable - covered in olive oil, sprinkled with salt, in a 400-425 degree oven for usually about 20 minutes (depending on the veggie & how much you want it cooked). Adds a nice crunchy texture to a lot of them, removing the sliminess if that's what you have a problem with.
