Twelve Goals for 2014

1. Study God's Word every day!

2. Be consistent in training Autumn and Eden.

3. Read 1 book per month that's non-fiction, a biography, or a classic.

4. Get physically fit.

5. Run a half-marathon with my sister.

6. Sew a quilt for Luke and I's bed.

7. Eat grains the healthy way -- grinding yourself, soaking, sprouted.

8. Blog once a week (because you enjoy it!).

9. Take more pictures.

10. Play the piano at least once a week.

11. Don't let your electronic devices or entertainment rule over you or waste your time.

12. Build or buy a home. Be a home-owner by the end of the year!

Lets see how I do! I think these are manageable even with my two Littles.

Plan It--Don't Panic! Week 6

So one huge thing happened to us this month which interrupted the Plan It--Don't Panic blogs for a few weeks!

We welcomed Autumn Shalom Redman into our lives! :D I gave birth to her at home on October 10, 2011 at 11:00 am. It was wonderful. Later on in the week I will try to post the whole story for those of you who would like to hear it. We love her so much!

Now for the final week:
October 31st to November 6th--
Monday--Breakfast: cold cereal & eggs
Dinner: beef enchiladas
Tuesday--Breakfast: smoothies & toast
Dinner: ham and navy bean soup
Wednesday--Breakfast: eggs & toast
Dinner: chicken Pad Thai
Thursday--Breakfast: hot cereal & eggs
Dinner: chili w/ cornbread muffins
Friday--Breakfast: smoothies & toast
Dinner: turkey salad sandwiches
Saturday--Breakfast: pancakes & eggs
Dinner: tatertot casserole
Sunday--Breakfast: oatmeal w/ fruit & nuts
Dinner: Harvest Dinner @ church (make/bring stuffing)

Confession: Most of these meals are pre-made freezer meals I made when I was pregnant so that I wouldn't have to worry much about making meals the first month after giving birth. I have been thankful I did this. I have also been very grateful for 2 weeks of meals that our church family has so graciously brought to us. God has blessed us so much!
