I love these monthly currently's with Farley. Go join the fun you haven't already!
Listening: Nothing too exciting there. Washing machine. Fun stuff people :)
Loving & Thinking: So, I have been doing a book called The 7 Experiment by Jen Hatmaker with my Bible Study and wow is it amazing! I'm doing the Bible study version but there is a book too. Anyway. the idea is that we have way too much excess in our lives (especially in America) and this book helps us go through a week fasting through 7 different areas. I have done food and clothes so far. For food, I fasted from all processed and fast foods. Wow, I didn't realize how much junk I was eating! Now, for clothes, I am wearing the same 7 items of clothing all week long. I also counted all of the clothes (including accessories and shoes) in my closet...and I had over 425! So I've also been going through my clothes and getting rid of some stuff. Anyway, if you're looking for something to read this summer, check out her book!
Wanting: I was so crafty this week! I sewed curtains out of tablecloths with my Grandma. I made a chalkboard out of a wooden frame from Michael's and chalkboard contact paper (now I just have to get some chalk), and I also made a couple front door decorations. I'm so productive when I have a week off from teaching (plus, only 2 more weeks of ESY when we start back up next week)! :)
Needing: I had so many good intentions of preparing for next year this summer...and those haven't happened yet, but I'm not being too hard on myself, I still have...oh, about a month....
Plans for the 4th: I'm heading up to Wisconsin with some of my really good friends from college. I am so excited to be able to spend time with them this weekend. (And this is the smallest bag I've ever packed for a weekend, considering I can only bring my 7 items of clothing (plus swim suit, pajamas, and undergarments!)
