Coffee and Pearls – STQ: Sugar, Sex, Lent

Thinking of decluttering for Lent? The Kindle version of my book Not Of This World is free from March 7-11. Get it here: https://amzn.to/2Tl2Cgk
 
The free Lenten Minimalism Challenge started yesterday! Join at www.facebook.com/groups/catholicminimalism
 
2. I’m totally off sugar and feeling like a superhero for all the things I’ve said no to. I did buy a sugar-free caramel syrup to put in my coffee though and that’s been delightful one or two mornings a week!
 
3. Your goals are like a campfire, not a chair. When you build a chair, you can expect it’ll be there tomorrow. When you build a campfire, you know you’ll have to rebuild it every morning. Focusing on goals and reigniting that fire should be a daily activity!
 
4. Did you see that all 9 Season of Little House on the Prairie are now on Amazon Prime??? This is one of the few shows we let our children watch. Check it out here: https://amzn.to/2EVmbmI
 
5. I’m 12.5 weeks pregnant. My morning sickness and exhaustion are fading so I’m looking forward to a smooth sailing second trimester! Food is still a complete wildcard. I have no idea what I can eat or not but the baby promptly tells me when my husband says a food or when I smell a food! Currently, the baby always wants cheeseburgers and I’m blessed that my husband makes ah-mazing cheeseburgers! He won’t tell me how he spices them!
 
6. Sex in the middle of the night has been surprisingly good and has a lot less pressure! Listen to the podcast version of this and I explain why!
 
7. I am doing the Jesus Tree from Catholic Sprouts https://catholicsprouts.com/Jesus-tree with the girls for Lent. I love the Jesse Tree of Advent so I was excited when she put this out. Order it now and start late because you know what, anything worth doing is worth doing poorly!

Coffee and Pearls – STQ: Pregnant, Speaking, and Rosaries

1. Still pregnant, not eating sugar but eating all the crackers. 
 
2. Still biking and doing kettlebell swings.
 
3. My parents moved out so we have more rooms for our many, many nappers. 
 
4. Going to be in Vancouver, WA on Feb. 23rd and in Batesville, IN on March 9th if you want to come see me speak!
 
5. I’ve been praying the rosary every night with my husband, a practice we’ve said we would do for eight years but… hey…. surprise pregnancies tend to bring you to your knees so now felt like a good time! Will be telling you all about the Aroma Rosary I’m using next week!
 
6. My brain is filled with cotton balls. 
 
7. Been embroidering and playing Rack-o in bed with my 8-year old. Thanks Happy Nome Nest Goods Theresa for holding my hand and showing me what to do!
