Ok. So I haven't been feeling super adventurous lately. In fact, I've hardly left the house, except to make multiple trips to the grocery store. And to pick up take-out.
Nonetheless, there are a few adventures to be had, even if you aren't venturing out much. Last night our neighbor invited us over for dinner (bless her heart!), and made an authentic mexican dish. Chile Relleno with fried green plantains! My instagram picture does not do it justice. A poblano pepper is roasted, then stuffed with beef, cheese, and (in this instance) sweet potatoes. Then it's dipped in an egg/flour batter and fried until the outside is crispy. Serve on rice, topped with tomato sauce and cheese. Amazing. Thank you, Melody!
Next adventure: The Maximize Your Mornings Challenge! This challenge (#HelloMornings on twitter) is based on the Maximize Your Mornings ebook (which is free, by the way), and the goal is for women to encourage each other and keep each other accountable to wake up in the morning and spend time with God/exercise/plan for the day.
With that said, the challenge is off to a very slow start for me. I'm sickest in the morning, so I'm giving myself some grace with this. My goal wake-up time is 6:30 (30 minutes later than usual), and if I feel super sick, I lay down until Squishy wakes up. Otherwise, I'm trying to squeeze in some alone time with Jesus--it helps so much!
Lastly, check out this adventure that's happening inside me. Blows. My. Mind. Pictured is a seven week old fetus (and I'm almost 8 weeks along). The fingers and toes and organs are developing at such an alarming rate right now. Incredible.
