“Madziso haana hurombo” Translated, “The eyes know no poverty.”

I have a new love! Window shopping and day dreaming. I am finding that I actually enjoy going to a store, looking at all there stuff and walking out with noting in my hands. Today I went to Hobby Lobby and didn't even bring my purse in so that way I wouldn't be tempted. This may not be fun for everyone though, but for me I feel like I get to go out and shop, I get to day dream about where I would put this or that, and when I window shop I fit into a size six :) and the only thing I had to pay for was the gas that got me there. Yesterday I was watching a church video that said we should ignore the urges of the world that tell us we need instant gratification, I need to remember that being able to afford food is a huge blessing that people all over the world don't have. So I will happily look and not spend, I will have a pleasant day dream about something and walk away then I will walk out of the store guilt free having not spent one cent.

If you don't like window shopping I urge you to find a new appreciation for it. :)

So I am puttting it out there!

Ok so this months post is about the new and exciting adventures Jacob and I are about to undertake. By the 9th of next month Jacob and I will be moved into a home, at the moment it is still kind of a dump but by the end of the month it will be a lovely little home to raise a family in and speaking of family I am 12 weeks into starting it! Thats right im 12 weeks pregnant today!!!! We are so excited about taking these big steps! I cant wate to take some pictures of the house so that everyone can see it. I might need my friend Kylie to come over and give me some decorating tips because I dont know what im going to do with all that space.
I am actually thinking of opening my home a few mornings and evenings for babysitting, I really want to give moms (or dads) the chance to go to the grocery store , to a dr.'s appt, or the temple, maybe even a movie without children. I'm thinking I would keep the cost fairly low since I'm beginning to learn that in the economy that your more likely to get business if you offer something for less. I will post more about it once I work out all the kinks.

This is what iv been feeling these last 12 weeks:
pure joy
pinched nerves
and lots of pressure in my abdomen
