What I'm Into this Month- September

This list was inspired by Megan at SortaCrunchy.  I am definitely echoing her amazement of how fast this month has gone by, but I'm actually glad it's gone by somewhat quickly.  I'm so done with triple digits (especially since I've been reading about so many people's lovely fall weather)!    

On My Nightstand: Sink Reflections by Marla Cilley (The FlyLady) and Discipline: The Glad Surrender by Elisabeth Elliot- I seriously misplaced this book, so it's not technically "on my nightstand" right now, but I'm determined to locate it (or buy it again!) so I can finish it.  So far a lot of good stuff in there that is inspiring me to up my "game" a little (okay, a lot!)

Want To Read:  Dug Down Deep by Joshua Harris, Radical by David Platt, Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon and of course, Discipline: The Glad Surrender by Elisabeth Elliot. Lol.

T.V. Show Worth Watching: Nothing right now. I absolutely feel another TV-free week coming on.  I think we did one in April or thereabouts, and it was nice to break out of the habit of automatically turning it on for no good reason.

Movie I've Seen (in or out of the theater):  I half-watched Sherlock Holmes with my husband a couple weeks ago (I was in and out of the kitchen making dinner).  From what I saw of it, it was pretty interesting.  I might have to watch it again.

In My Kitchen:  Lentil, Kale and Bacon Soup (recipe from For the Love of Cooking) Delicious!

In My Ears:  The newest additions to my playlist are: Revelation Song by Kari Jobe (we've been singing this at church lately, and it's just an amazing worship song) and In My Arms by Plumb.

Three Newest Blog Reads: Modern Alternative Mama, The Blog Guidebook (a great resource for the beginning blogger- like me!  And for more experienced bloggers as well) and Passionate Homemaking.

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:  My daughters 1st birthday celebration!  Hard to believe she is almost 1.  It's amazing how fast they grow, and how fast time passes once you become a parent.  It feels like it was just yesterday that I was pregnant with my son (who is now nearly three and a half!) Wow!  Also looking forward to cooler weather (hopefully).  

What about you?  What are you into this month???


  1. Okay, can I just confess that I had to giggle that you listed a book you've misplaced after you listed The Fly Lady book? That SO sounds like something I would do!!! And if it makes you feel any better, i lost my copy of Radical for two weeks or so. (I lose things a lot.)

    I love Revelation Song, too. Love, love, love.

  2. Yes...The Fly Lady definitely has her work cut out with me! Ha ha. Thanks for coming by!

  3. I'm thinking about buying a Fly Lady book. I found one at Half Price Books actually:) Your soup sounds amazing! I LOVE Kari Jobe's Revelation Song! I used her song, "My Beloved," at my wedding. I will have to check out those blogging info links. Thanks for sharing :)

  4. I have Sink Reflections in my pile of "to read" books! :)

  5. The Fly Lady is wonderful! Even if you just sign up for her daily emails. I'm serious, my whole approach to housework has been transformed since I discovered her about 6 months ago. Especially since I've got two little ones...but even if it's just you and your hubby (for now) it will really be a blessing to you. I know even just having one person other than yourself to take care of can be overwhelming. She's a genius. :)

    Oh, and Emily, that's where I got my copy. Lol.

  6. LOVE Revelation Song!

    When I misplace books, I check the amazon used books. Many are just a penny with $3.99 shipping, so not bad, especially if I have swagbucks for a $5 amazon gift card.

    I really need to get serious with FlyLady again. I have not messed up much on a few things but other things - goodness. I need work! It's totally the perfectionism thing!

  7. That's a good tip for book replacement. Think of all the books I could buy (and then subsequently lose...jk)!

    I just love how FlyLady says "you're not behind..." It's totally guilt-free. But you're probably still trying to find your rhythm with having two little ones. On one hand, I feel like saying "the dust will still be there when you get back into the swing of things" but then I know how good it feels to have things in order. Even if it's just a little cleaner or more orderly than yesterday. It makes such a difference. I also really love the whole "no brainer" aspect of her program.
