Well it’s been almost a month since the last installment of Five Things Friday on Quote the Rabon, so it doesn’t appear that it will be a regular thing. It might make a cameo every now and then.
1. Today we had a little get together with our Thrive Moms Local group. We did a simple time of hanging out and drinking the most fatteningly delicious hot chocolate with some extra fun toppings. There were four of us moms and four little boys ages 7 months- 2 years. When it’s nice, we try to do park dates and have even been to the zoo! We’re working on building the group, so if you’re anywhere in the South Metro Denver area and interested in joining us, please let me know and I’ll add you to our Facebook group!
2. I’m starting another round of Whole30 on Monday, so it’s a good thing that I drank that hot chocolate today! Although it won’t REALLY be a Whole30 because I already have two cheat days scheduled (a late birthday dinner for my brother-in-law at Benihana and our anniversary dinner). Oh well, I’m doing something mostly healthy for myself!
3. I just finished reading Fervent by Priscilla Shirer, and it was awesome. I’ve been looking for resources to improve my prayer life and this was a great read. It inspired me to be more deliberate and specific in my petitions to God. I also picked up a journal so that I can start writing down my prayers. This should help to keep me focused and provide a record of what I have prayed for to make it easier to see how God answers me.
4. We had a great Easter. We invited Dan and Joanna and Matt and his girlfriend, Victoria to join us at our new church home. Then, Dan and Joanna joined us for some delicious Easter tacos. Matt and Victoria came by after dinner with her family to hang out, watch Matt do some Crossfit in the garage and eat brownies. Overall, a good day was had by all.
5. Jonathan saw Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 on Netflix when we were looking for a show to watch. And now he’s totally into them. I fully embrace this because: I loved Fantasia as a kid, he’s listening to classical music and it embraces both abstract and concrete methods of animation. I feel like it might be making both of us a little smarter. Also, my two year old is not at all afraid of Chernabog from “Night on Bald Mountain.” I knew 4-5 year olds at the school I worked at who were afraid of the hyenas in Lion King.
Also, how did I never notice that Night on Bald Mountain is interrupted by Ave Maria when the sun rises?
