I stumbled on a link-up, and it felt like just the thing to do!

Cooking: Let’s be real…I want to be better at cooking. Not that I’m bad, exactly, I just don’t even try! Everything just requires so many ingredients…However, I am eager to try this recipe on my own! Carrie made it for small group this past Sunday, and it was awesome.

Reading: I have started and not finished so many books in the past year. Seriously. I should be ashamed. I just started I Am Malala last night, but it’s due back to the library tomorrow. Now I’m in the limbo where I decided whether I actually want to read it right now or not! I’m not much of a non-fiction reader, unless it’s a celeb’s auto-biography, but I’m trying to branch out. (Let’s be friends on Goodreads!)

Wearing: An old black dress, a green cardigan, and sandals from Target several summers ago. And a bunny necklace – I got the chain and charm from Hobby Lobby a year or two ago and fashioned them together. Obsessed.

Loving: My husband and what God is showing us. (That sounds super profound. He’s showing us little things right now – like that we can and should trust Him more.) The view from my office is still wowing me. Spring and summer weather are doing the tango, and I like it!

Anticipating: The weekend! As long as all the logistics are in order, Jordan will be graduating on Saturday! I could not be more proud of him.

Be sure to check out Jenna and Anne, the hosts of this super fun link-up!

Have an amazing afternoon!

P.S. Check out my first post on Mississippi Women Bloggers!

  4. I loooove Mexican rice! I like recipes with only a few ingredients, too. Congrats on your Mississippi Women's Blogger's post!

  5. i've never even thought to make my own mexican rice, but it's always so good when i get it at a mexican restaurant. congrats jordan graduating! that's a huge accomplishment! (i'm new to your blog so i am assuming he is your husband? haha.) happy friday!

    1. Yes ma'am! He's my sweet husband. It's been a long time coming, but we're so happy that graduation is finally here!!

  6. I know what you mean about too many ingredients. I always feel guilty that I don't like cooking more than I do. But really, the fewer ingredients needed, the more enjoyable it is! It's almost like a game to see how simple I can make it. ;)
