"All Things"

An adoptive mom who loves Christ, family, running, fitness, and all things health related.


Did you know that adoptive parents dread the weekend?  Weird, huh?

Well, the agency is closed on the weekends, which means that there will not be any news of referrals and our phone will not ring.  Such a bummer knowing we have to wait for 2 more days to hear anything.

This wait is excruciating.

The good news is that God is not closed on the weekends.  He is still working to intertwine our story with the story of our children.  He is moving in a mighty way to bring our children into our lives.  I just know it.  My heart knows this; I just have to keep reminding my head that God is in control and that He is not letting us go.

So hard.

Going out for 6 miles to pray, give thanks to God for how He is working, and to shake it out.

Gotta shake it out.


Yesterday was a pretty typical day of eating.  I woke up, ran 4 hard miles, and had my oatmeal concoction.

Lunch was in my mini-crockpot and was so delish.  I finally took a photo of my typical lunch.  I made a crock pot chili with 3 egg whites on top and ate it with plain greek yogurt.  So good- so filling.


My crock pot concoction. So good.


How cute is this little crock pot? My mom got it for me last Christmas and I love it. It plugs into the wall (the plug curls around it and is hidden on the bottom), and gives me a hot, healthy, filling lunch every day.

Yesterday was a half day for the kids, with a professional development in the afternoon.  When I got home from work, I was greeted by my nieces and nephews, who were here with my mom.  So fun to come home to a full house of kiddies <3.  They stayed for dinner- I made a vegetable soup that was a crowd pleaser!

When they left around 8 pm, we decided to put on a movie: “Flight” with Denzel Washington.  What was I thinking? I should know that I am not that cool on a Friday night.  Yep, I fell asleep half way through.  So cool.  By the time I woke up, the movie was over, my neck was stiff, and my contacts were wreaking havoc on my eyes. It felt so good to go to sleep and not wake up until 7:30 this morning.

I woke up and made this:


Egg white omelet with toast and coffee. Don’t be jealous of my “I love teaching” mug.

Up for today? 6 miles, finish cleaning the house, then driving out to Harrisburg to pick my soon-to-be-famous niece, Juliet, up from her acting class.

Trying to make the most of the weekend!

  1. Hope you had a good run today!
    Once I read you decided to watch Flight, I was looking forward to what you thought of it since I really wanted to see it.! hahah! You needed the sleep though 🙂

  2. My run was great! It was one of those runs that I didn’t *really* feel like doing, but turned out to be awesome. That happens a lot: the runs I’m not into at the beginning are sometimes the best!

    I went back and finished Flight- it was definitely not my favorite Love Denzel, but that movie was just eh. You’re not missing out!!
