I got dressed this week!

Well, I did it! I completed the "Get Dressed" challenge. I can't say that I hit the mark every single day, but I made the best and most valiant effort that I could every morning. There were some mornings when Rowan's morning nap dictated when I got in the shower & fully ready. Sometimes I made it by 8am, other times, it was closer to 8:30 or 9:00. But you know what? I quickly realized that the time wasn't the point... at least for me.

It was great to get out of bed, pick out some cute clothes, hop in the shower and make an effort at improving my appearance. I got the bed made, ate breakfast, drank my coffee and worked through my first five days of reading the Bible cover-to-cover in 90 days... all while Rowan took his long morning nap. I definitely felt a bit more productive and I was much less likely to sit on the couch and watch Lord of the Rings.

Overall, it was a great challenge and I'm glad I participated! I'm really enjoying my morning routine.

And I'll leave you with a "Have a great weekend!" Because, I'm headed here with a bunch of high school kids, some great leaders, my husband and my kid for a weekend retreat:

I'll be back sometime on Sunday. I'll try to post pictures and give an update after we're settled home. Here's hoping the weather is beautiful, wherever you might find yourself this weekend.

  4. I'm visiting you from Gather Inspirit. I read a little further down your blog and read your story and it really touched my heart. Thank you for being so honest and open!

  5. wait wait the Bible in 90 days? Revelations alone took me a month to read and only somewhat comprehend. How are you doing this?
