tuesday list

This week is a series of Schrock celebrations. Yesterday was Moses' birthday, tomorrow is Daylen's birthday, and today is my oldest brother's anniversary. What a happy week for them. Monica, my sister-in-law, just ran the Chicago Marathon on Sunday. I love the kissing photo above of my grandparents with Ben and Monica, so sweet. I'm still jealous of their fall wedding in northern Indiana. It was beautiful: leaves changing, warm feeling, lots of dancing. I can't believe how much has happened since their wedding. In eight years, all of us kids married, and my siblings added seven little people. I love our big family. I can't imagine life without them.

As for the rest of this week, I'm praying for that little license number I've been waiting for four months. I'm finding plenty of pretty things to look at, read and make as I wait. I'm working on some posts: more on Henri Nouwen, photos of our home, and a couple projects (birthday presents)! I'll leave you with some other neat things that keep me busy...

Tried these peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies on Sunday. Thanks Mal.

Watched The Pixar Story in memory of Steve Jobs.

Started another documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop on street art.

Eating up this gorgeous nursery. Makes me want to pick up sticks and hang them on our walls.

This new Elizabeth Dye wedding dress is gorgeous.

Adorable DIY sweater elbow patches.

Yes, I really love Jimmy Fallon's Jersey Floor.

Loved Cup of Jo's halloween costumes picks.

Amazing retirement cottages in Washington state.

Ate this crock pot taco chili tonight.

Can't wait to make homemade chicken nuggets this week.

Happy Tuesday.

  1. Lovely random post, Emilie!
    Fall weddings simply are the best....and I want to add elbow pads to all of my tops! It makes them ten times more adorable and classy.
