 I thought I had rode the 'Goodwill' wave in and was done with it. I hadn't gone to one in about a couple {maybe a few?} months, but I went last week to scope out some frames and got hooked again.  You just never know what you are going to find and that fun part sort of makes up for the itchy-need to use antibacterial asap- feeling. I ran in a couple of days ago and just as I walking to the front, decided to go back down this one aisle just to see if anything had been added. 
And there it was. This 12.99$ candle I've been eyeing at Target. brand new for 1.99. 
And that my friends is why we all keep going back to Goodwill, am I right?

 I have some really good memories from when I was little, of sitting at our open front door during rain storms, with chairs and blankets watching the rain fall. So whenever it rains I always get the urge to do something fun and special with the kids. This day we dragged their little ikea table and chairs to the front patio with some kraft paper and crayons and they thought it was the greatest thing ever.

Speaking of rain, it's been doing it a lot here. It's hit or miss. Sunny one hour and pouring rain the next. I went for a run just after a really good storm the other day and decided I loved it. I was drenched in sweat by the time I got home because although it was somewhere in the 80's, it was 100% humidity.

And it is always fun to come home to my little cheerleaders. 
Asher keeps a tally of my mileage and Bella just wants to hang on me like it's been days apart.

 This was us heading home last night. The kids had some friends over to spend the night. I sort of thought we might be a little crazy at first, but at the end of the night after dinner, baths, play time and  bed time prayers,  I loved laying in bed knowing we had a house full of kids. I think I may have even told Brandon in my half awake stupor, that I'd love to have 6 kids one day and I'm pretty sure he told me I was indeed crazy. 

SheReadsTruth started a new reading plan on Prayer and I am really loving it. Since there isn't a devotional with it, just scripture, it really pushes me to put my own thoughts down and dig a little deeper for myself. Check the SheReadsTruth site out if you have any questions and let me know if you started this one too, I'd love to follow along with you on instagram or twitter. 

Happy Weekend friends!
We are going to see the Dark Night on Sunday and I am really looking forward to it. Mainly because I fully intend on getting the complete movie theatre experience since we rarely go anymore. I plan to consume lots of buttery popcorn, diet dr. pepper and lemon heads.
Oh yes. 

 Have a good one!
