three in one.

the past few days have been icky. totally gross. like, me not sleeping, maggie being a fussy pants, husband being busy, rain, depression, and a whole giant list of other things. lets just say, i am thankful to have hope, and that grace is continually poured on me and my family. also thankful that things seem to be going forward from here, and i am remembering to pull my strength from the LORD. so, with all that going on, i have become terribly behind on projet31 which makes me sad because i have been really enjoying it. so here are 3 posts packed into one.  in other news, i am really excited about the following things:
* its the month of love (my favorite)
*my husband is out getting ice cream so we can watch 'the social network'
* i took the best nap this afternoon.

 ( ps. any sleeping tips for new mamas? my sweet baby has been sleeping through the night for about 6 weeks now, and i am having the worst insomnia ever.so frustrating.)
day eleven
 Post a recipe.  Or if you don't cook, try a new recipe and write about how it turned out (pictures please!).
i dont have a picture(sorry!), but we eat this all the time! i got this yummy recipe from a friend, it is so easy and so good!
breaded ranch chicken
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup of italian style bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 packet of hidden valley ranch dip mix
1/4 cup melted butter
combine bread crumbs, cheese and ranch mix in a shallow bowl. melt butter. dip chicken in the butter and then into the bread crumb mix. place in casserole dish that is lightly greased. bake at 350* for 45 mins or until golden brown. 
day twelve
Write about what wears you out as a woman.
i could write so much about this one, but because i am posting 3 days in one, i think i should keep it brief. i think that the thing that wears me out the most as a woman is the constant need to feel valued and accepted. i am in a constant state of anxiety and fear of man (and woman, mostly woman). i feel like i am never good enough, pretty enough, talented enough, smart enough, creative enough... the list goes on. i am so thankful that this is not what(or who) i am living for. 
day thirteen
 Write about something you would like to change about yourself for the better.
honestly. i am so selfish. i have talked about this so many times and i know that it will probably be a life long struggle for me. i would like to be more loving to those i dont know. i would like to think of myself less and others more. i would like to serve my husband and my family better. i would like to be a more thoughtful person. i would like to serve Jesus without thinking of myself and my own comforts. i would like to really kick selfishness in the bum and put it behind me. i would like to stop procrastinating and start being a better planner, stop complaning about pretty much everything under the sun,and to wholeheartedly serve and seek after my relationship with the LORD.  i do not know if those relate to selfishness, but they are definitely things i would like to change about myself for the better.
