Exited about: making my own shampoo!! I have officially crossed to another side I tell ya. I've caught the "make your own stuff and feel awesome because you know what's in it" bug and I can't wait to share how it goes with all of you. I'm really hoping it doesn't completely flop, but I told Andy that even if it does, it's still a fun adventure. I'll also be sure to do a cost breakdown like I did with the bread because currently it's costing me an arm and a leg to buy all the ingredients. You don't use all of each ingredient for one batch though, so I'm hoping once I have everything I can get a lot of good use out of the recipe before having to buy more.
Freaking out when: my phone rings. I feel like we could hear any day (or not) about an adoption referral, which is making me a little twitchy. I try not to get all crazy, but it's hard not to. Now whenever my phone rings I get all gladiator-like and dive to grab it to see who's calling. Imagine my dismay when it's Verizon telling me I'm over my texting limit. Or my doctor calling to confirm my appointment. Such a rapid rush of emotions.
Enjoying: grilling! Well, eating food from the grill. Andy grills, and it is soooo good. Now when I go to the grocery store I just buy things that need to be grilled, and then get home and load them into the refrigerator, and turn to Andy and bat my eyelashes and tell him I bought all this wonderful food to go on the grill and "your grilling is soooo good" (because it is) and hope that he is fine with making dinner for the rest of the week. ;)
Watching: this. Ugh. (GMO's, our food, etc.) You may not want to watch it if you're feeling especially stressed or agitated, because it's bound to make you more-so, but I think it's good information to have. I haven't quite figured out what to do with it yet, but for now I'm just doing a lot of reading and thinking.
Anticipating: the arrival of my Young Living Essential Oils Starter Kit. I know, I've crossed to another side. Haha. I've been reading for over a year about essential oils and health, and how they can really be a help with treating common health issues naturally instead of with medication (because I cannot admit to you how much Advil I consume). Andy bought me the resource guide for my birthday and the go-ahead to purchase the kit to give them a try. I've been really struggling with headaches, and allergy season is upon us, so I'm hoping to try some oils and see if they help. I'll be sure to report back if I have any success :)
Getting ready for: a little family road trip soon! Chloe is coming with us which will thrill her to no end! I love little road trips, and the chance to see family members who we don't see often enough.
I think that's all that's going on in our neck of the woods recently! Lots of tidbits and not too much earth-shattering to report, but all good stuff :)
