The Daily Dime: August 2017

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Sweet Kristin sent me an email last week to remind me of the Daily Dime linkup, one of my favorites, and I was so grateful. But then life happened and we didn't really have a good day that I could record our day in its entirety until yesterday, and I kind of forgot. BUT I take enough photos on an average day that I could put together almost a "dime" :) So this may be a bit choppy but it's a look at a real life day in our life, towards the end of summer when life is all over the place!

9:37 am sent this selfie to my friend Nicole to record the fact that Beau was climbing all over me like I am his personal jungle gym. 

In between here is where I could have really used some more photos. :) I spent some time cooking in the kitchen, worked on a few calendar related things for fall, booked our family on a local "Polar Express" steam train in December. We also ran a few real estate errands for Ben. 

12:42 pm I made a quick whole 30 lunch I've seen on some blogs, avocado egg salad. Smushed up hard boiled eggs with avocado mixed together.. looks not so great but was so yummy and filling!

2:24 pm Sent this text my friend Kayla to let her know that we were on our way to deliver her new family of THREE some dinner! They welcomed their sweet girl on Friday. I made them lasagna and included a caesar salad kit, a box of garlic knots, and also made brownies. Easy... but comfort food! 

4:12 pm Sitting on my bestie's couch, snuggling her girl and talking about what's going on in our lives.. literally nothing better!

7:05pm We had our friends the Hamiltons over for dinner, and ate the same meal we dropped off earlier in the day. Towards the end of dinner, McKenna had fed their sweet baby, Anna Lee and Ben asked to hold her sweet sleeping self while McKenna ate dinner. Sleeping baby on your chest is the ultimate happy place! 

9:32 pm A late night for the kids! Ben was leading them through the telling of a "ghost story" before they all left!

10:23pm My friend Sarah had me login to her blog to read the post she had scheduled for tomorrow (today!) on their journey with infertility ahead of time. I would highly recommend reading her testimony of the struggle they have endured and been sustained by Christ through. It's been an honor to walk through this with her and pray for a baby for their sweet family with her since the beginning. It is Sarah's heart for people to see the goodness of God through their story, and I'd love for y'all to check it out and encourage her! 



  1. So fun! I love that sweet pic of you and Beau in the mirror!

  2. Looks like you had a busy but productive day! Your sweet Beau is absolutely precious, and I'm praying for Sarah and her family during this difficult time. Such a sweet soul.

  3. I loved your post, but I especially love that (like me) you have enough photos for a post on any given day! Thanks for linking up, friend.

  4. What a fun link-up!! I definitely need to jump in because I'm constantly taking pictures. For me it could also be titled "The things I text my sister about on any given day" haha.

    Thanks for sharing!
