Monday Musings {7/23}

Monday night is still Monday! I'm joining my friend Charlotte and doing Monday Musings! Feel free to post your own musings ~ tell me in the comments so I can come visit! :)

What I'm thinking: How nice it is to be out of the car after 2 long days on the road! I'm on the couch and relaxing in comfy clothes right now!

What I'm reading: During the road trip, I've been reading One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp and The Money Saving Mom's Budget by Crystal Paine. I'm also slowly working my way through Psalms in my Bible reading.

What I'm listening to: Hubs watching TV and typing on his laptop and a fan blowing.

What we're learning: That using Instagram and Facebook check-ins make a road trip more fun! :)

What I'm watching: News about the movie theater massacre. So sad. My prayers are with the victims' families as well as with the shooter's family.

What's cooking: Had salmon from Costco tonight. Will be eating out a lot while on vacation this week. Looking forward to dinner out for hubs' birthday tomorrow!

What I'm buying: Probably some clothing or other items since I'm visiting a state with no sales tax! And definitely some candy from my favorite candy store!

What I'm thankful for: Very thankful for safe travels all the way from California to Montana!

What I'm creating: I completed the craft I mentioned last week. That is amazing for me!

What I'm planning: Celebrating hubs' birthday tomorrow! Happy Birthday honey - I love you!!

What we did this last weekend: Drove and drove and drove. :)

What I'm looking forward to: Hubs' birthday, hanging out with Dad, sight-seeing, and more!

A picture to share: 
Sunset in Nevada on our first day of driving - amazing that I could capture that with my phone through the car window while the car was zipping along on the highway!

How was your past week? What do you have going on this week?

  1. I don't even want to think about the last week or this week. lol. My husband competes in and runs lumberjack competitions. We are right in the middle of running 2.....when he had to get sent out of town on work. So I'm stuck home with a 4 month old trying to get the details for this week's competition ironed out with limited phone contact with my husband. A bit crazy. :)

  2. Loved this, as usual.

    And I will never forget the time you shared some of the candies from your favorite candy store with us. So yummy!

    Have a lovely time!!

  3. I'm so glad you had safe travels. And was that craft the one I got? You did a FANTASTIC job. I love it!

    Big something and or other about that thing that I can't remember and stuff size hugs to you!

    LOVE YA!
