What I've Been Doing Instead of Blogging

  • Going to a women's Bible study at church. We're doing the Beth Moore study on Esther. I've done one other Beth Moore study in the past, Believing God. I think I liked that one better. Some of the homework for this one seems a little superficial, but I really enjoy the videos and our small-group discussions.
  • Getting ready for Hannah and Matt to come. I'm so excited! Darby and I are going to pick them up in Chicago on Saturday. We're going to spend the night there and do some sightseeing, then they're coming back to our house until Thursday! Yayyy!
  • Eating ice cream. My beloved Custard Cup reopened for the season last Friday, and, embarrassingly, Darby and I have already been 3 times. I told Darby last night, "We can't keep this rate up." We'll be broke and very fat by the end of the summer. But it's just so good!
  • Enjoying the spring weather. The past two days we've had highs in the 60s! (A little rainy, but who cares?) I'm not getting my hopes up that winter is completely over yet, but I'm enjoying being coatless while I can.
  • Being excited for my friend Kalyn. She is having a baby! I have been praying about this for a year (as many others have), and I'm so thankful that God chose to answer our prayers in this way. Baby Gensic will be making his/her (I think her, but Kalyn thinks his) appearance in October. Many excited phone calls and e-mails have been traded back and forth among the Fat Tuesday girls about our 2nd little addition to the group.

First off, I've done the Beth Moore Esther Bible study and am currently doing my second Beth Moore study. I enjoy them, although I am really bad about procrastinating on my homework and doing all five days in one or two days. Is it bad that the thing I enjoyed the most about the Esther study was seeing what Beth Moore was wearing each week?

And secondly, yay for the baby! Unfortunately, I get sick every two hours or so, but it's for a good cause. There are a whole slew of other disgusting symptoms, but I'm not going to tell you about those until after you get pregnant because I don't want to totally freak you out.

And lastly, have fun with your siblings! Can't wait to see the pictures!

Esther wasn't my favorite but I always get a lot out of the videos. Glad you are having a good time and looking forward to Hannah and Matt! I'm happy for Kalyn, too.
