can you believe it is almost april? what is happening folks? wasn’t it just christmas? jeepers.
also, it is 90 degrees here. ninety. nothing much more to say about that…
hubby and i went out to a totally crazy dinner last night at cb&cb [cold beers & cheeseburger]. it was everything that we dreamed it would be…lots of meat and cheese and toppings and fries. so good. i took plenty of snaps of the glorious food and our extreme happiness while consuming said food. these pics will appear on the blog on monday but keep in mind that if you are the kind of person who enjoys instant gratification…you can follow our adventures on instagram. snap by snap. find us @swankyanddapper.
in addition to the fun dinner outings, we will mostly stick to our weekend usual – groceries, a good long run, a saturday morning coffee run, church, spending time with family, and just take it easy. doesn’t get much better than that.
is there anything better?
now, while hubby and i do enjoy some tasty morning grub on the weekends, our weekday morning routine usually consists of some quick eggs, grapefruit, smoothies, or granola. something healthy that i can quickly pull together while i am still trying to pull myself together at 5:30 in the morning. [hurray for working when the market works!] this usually means that the more elaborate meals have to be saved for saturday morning…or, dinnertime!
there is something comforting about coming home from a long day at work and having the ol’ olfactory greeted by the aroma of bacon. this week, we cooked up some turkey bacon and piled it high on top of a crispy fried egg. then, we covered it in sharp cheddar and let it melt until it became one smother-y pile of goodness in the pan. once the meat and eggs and cheese were steaming hot, super crispy, and extra oozey…the tasty concoction was delicately placed between a freshly toasted [and buttered] gluten-free bagel.
oh. my. what a heavenly little sandwich.
i snagged this piece of visual theology from mr. tim challies. he is the author of one of my daily staple blogs, challies.com where he seeks to “inform the reformed” by offering biblical commentary, social observations, book reviews, and much more…all from a reformed perspective. a few weeks ago, i saw this image on his blog and just had to feature it. sometimes, seeing truth in images makes it more vivid. you might remember a few months back, i posted on the topic of elevated thinking following a particularly striking sermon at our church. this section of scripture has challenged me to be more aware of my thought life and to focus on things above. anytime i am trying to focus on something and be diligent in my actions, it is helpful to remind myself as often as possible…post-it notes on a mirror, magnets on the fridge, papers posted in conspicuous places, etc. for me, it helps to SEE IT. may this serve as a reminder for us to “think on these things” and take our thinking to an elevated place.
