Haven was singing this song tonight so I asked her to sing it for me so I could record her. We πŸ’• Agathos!

This is how I am having to fold laundry tonight guys. A whole new level of cold. #58daysuntilspring

Kicking off... mmmmm, πŸ€”more like slowly unwinding... πŸŒ€into 2018 from 2017. Still pj clad. 😬 My heart is excited even though I'm still a little slothful on the exterior. I'm choosing to be *intentional* this year. I'm fully prepared for it to be a little awkward at first πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈbut that is how we grow, right? #nothingwillchangeifnothingchanges So, here is to the year of living life on purpose. #wordoftheyear {also...can I whisper in the ear of mamas with babies and toddlers.... When I would read about other mamas choosing a word of the year I would immediately feel overwhelmed. That stinking comparison. Like- I have to do something in addition to survival?? 😩Hear me. Do not worry about thinking of any other word other than LOVE for these little years. Hey, if God gives you one- amazing. Just don't feel like you have to chase another purpose down. LOVE is really all you need. And grace- heaps of that! So there ya go. Go pick up those tinies... or go take a bath/ go for a run/ get out of the house (love you!!), so you can refill to love them better. ... you have incredible purpose in these years that are filled with sacrifice}
Ok- back to more unwinding and laundry. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜¬

Happy Birthday, my unicornπŸ¦„. Perfect name for you!! I treasure you more than you will ever know. Love that the whole world celebrates your birthday πŸ˜‰πŸŽ‰ Hope you have the most golden year ever!! @nancyray ✨#31onthe31st ✨

It's finished!!! I read the whole Bible this year. 😳😭 I have tried to do this so many times and have failed, and honestly thought I would fail again. It definitely wasn't perfect. There were a lot of catch up days. BUT... God called me back again and again. I used a 5 day reading plan that I will try to link in my profile on IG & in the comments on FB.
I love this plan because 1) 2 buffer days really made this doable 2) I love checklists!! πŸ˜‚ 3) I love reading Psalms all through the years!! I really debated sharing this- the main reason IS NOT for accolades- the fact that I finished it is totally enough for me. I share because I truly want to encourage you to do it!!! If you haven't ever done this- commit to do it this year. If you need encouragement I would love to cheer you on!!! My sweet @annawoerner totally cheered for me! We were honest with each other about how at times it was hard! We got overwhelmed with life & had to carve out times to catch up. But it was so worth it!! Seeing the big picture of the entire story God has given us is breathtaking. At times I was so mad at the Israelites. I was always in awe of God's patience & love. I cried tears over the redemption he offers to us. And sometimes my cheeks turned pink because the Bible is not G rated. πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ Get your plan together today because tomorrow is a great day to start! πŸ˜‰ I'm praying for you!!!!

Babies, new puppy, family, memories, and pink hair. I liked you 2017! #2017bestnine

It's here! It's here! Up at 5:59am only because we set a time limit of 6am. Harper says she has been up since 4:30. Haven came in bed with us at 5am. πŸ˜‚ So much fun in the anticipation! Treasuring these years. Merry Christmas! 🎁

Merry Christmas!!!! πŸŽ„πŸŽ 2017 πŸ’•

Love my girls so much. Missed you @mama.normie!!! #bslchristmasparty 2017 πŸ’•

Happy Birthday Haven Joy!!! Our sweet 6 year old πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• We celebrated her this morning at breakfast with cinnamon rolls. Then at school, we ate donuts and her friends told her what things they have noticed in her- kindness, she is a good friend, she is fast, she loves to laugh! So sweet coming from her buddies! Early dismissal today followed by some family Christmas shopping. Then on to Culver's for an early birthday dinner. Home for birthday presents and learning to play her first song on the piano- Chopsticks (that she calls Chapsticks!πŸ˜‚) We love this sweet and feisty girl! So thankful she is part of our family!

We had family pictures made by the talented @joannamariemorris yesterday! Even though getting ready for this photo shoot proved to be quite challenging (Haven cried for over an hour because she couldn't pick her outfit πŸ˜‚πŸ™„πŸ™πŸΌ) and it was freezing cold- I love that this season of life was captured!! And to make it all the more sweet- yesterday was our 10 year anniversary of living and serving in Tennessee! I was 7.5 months pregnant when we moved here in 2007... God has abundantly blessed us. πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ˜­ We praise you, Lord for this family, our marriage, an amazing church, precious friends, the hard times, the silly times, the wonderful times. It is all yours and all comes from You. We are grateful!!

So you KNOW you love the place you work when you go there on your day off! I got one of @thedottedlime new To Go salads & a cup of soup (which was delish!!) AND I picked up their ready made gluten free lasagna for dinner!!! Chris isn't home on Wednesday nights so I wanted something quick and easy! Just swipe to the right & see the ingredients/ directions and the kids' reactions!!!!! It's a πŸ”Ÿ for the Blanton's!!!!! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ˜‚ THANK YOU FOR SUCH A YUMMY DINNER
