comfort food.

When returning home from MI, we walked in to a perfectly clean home, with beautiful flowers in all the right places, and our favorite foods and drinks (not just the basics..our favorite ice cream from Sebastian Joe's, JD's treasured cracklin' oat bran, a full bag of frozen mahi mahi, mango apricot greek yogurt from TJ's, beer, wine, Izze for me :), freshly baked brownies) stalked perfectly in the well as the most yummy lasagna ready to toss in the oven and meals planned for the days ahead.  ***If you are sick of your traditional lasagna recipe try this one.

It was overwhelming, shocking, distracting, gave me goosebumps and joy after one of the hardest weeks of my life...thank you, thank you so much friends and sister.  This beautiful act of service that I was blessed with is a picture of this verse:

2 Corinthians 1:3-4
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have recieved."

I haven't been the best comforter, but through this God is teaching me how to be a better servant to Him and the people I love.

Thank you Lord that...

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, are You, God in your holy dwelling. (Psalm 68:5)

You, O God, will never leave me or forsake me (Heb 13:5)
I will cling to the one thing I will never lose.

Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.

little feet and big bellies.

Thinking about little d's little feet.  Last night I could REALLY feel ld's movement as I was laying in bed.  The little one was moving around like crazy.  JD set his hand on my tummy and felt a big kick three times.  Such a miracle.

I saw a former co-worker at Starbucks this AM that is due any day...her belly is so beautiful.  Have you seen forever 21's maternity line?  It's not a very large assortment but they will be introducing new denim styles for under $20.00 soon.  The last styles they had sold out before I was able to order any...bummer because I CAN'T button any of my jeans.  Thank goodness for my belly band (gracias CZ).

cute with leggings or black skinny pants, blazer, and a scarf for work.
17.80 + tax and shipping (Maternity is only available in maybe 3 cities?) plus 21% off this week.
great deal.

i'm off to the lake!!!  happy weekend.

God is good.

My little one is growing and is now the size of a banana or cantaloupe depending on which book/website you look at.  Last night I got overwhelmingly excited about being a parent.  Even more exciting is that I get to see JD be the best dad.  I can hardly wait to see him hold ld.  Speaking of ld--here is the most perfectly unisex onesie:

I get to see LA tonight.  and I got to see GEM last week.  and MKP is the most beautiful mama.  (see ladies, I blogged!!)

Thankful for my friends, a great job, an amazing church, the best family, and to God who gives me every single thing I need.
