30 Days of Lists - Day 26-29

It's been a few days, and I apologize for that. I was gone this weekend and didn't even have a chance to look at the lists until last night. So, I will now attempt four lists at once. (drumroll, please...)


  • Elisabeth Elliot's Passion and Purity: Learning Christ's Control and The Path of Loneliness
  • Amy Carmichael's If
  • A.J. Bueltmann's White Queen of the Cannibals: The Story of Mary Slessor of Calabar
  • Jamie Zumwalt's Simple Obsession
  • C.S. Lewis' The Screwtape Letters and Mere Christianity
  • Carolyn Mahaney's Feminine Appeal (reread)
  • Joshua Harris' Dug Down Deep


  • Marriage is harder than you ever thought it could be, but it's also more rewarding than you could ever imagine. 
  • At 27, it's still okay to miss your mom sometimes.
  • Wax paper is not oven-proof, and it's not the same as parchment paper.
  • If you follow the recipe, chances are you can make pretty decent food.
  • God blesses us so that we can, in turn, bless others. 
  • It's completely possible to live without cable television. You'll probably even learn to like it.
  • Sometimes, you just have to admit you're wrong. 
  • Taxes are just inherently evil. 
  • Every girl likes to dress up every now and then.


  • The Gospel Coalition 2011 in Chicago - yep, we're going. We are super, super, super pumped about this one. Three days of awesome Christian speakers, authors, bloggers, and pastors such as: Matt Chandler, Mark Driscoll, Don Carson, Kevin DeYoung, John Piper, Joshua Harris, Tim Keller, and tons more. 
  • The Grand Canyon (maybe next year?) - I've never been.
  • Seattle - we went for our honeymoon, and I fell in love with it. I want to go back!
  • New Zealand - John and I are thinking maybe we'll save up and go for our 25th anniversary. Fingers crossed. 
  • Switzerland - I so, so, so want to stand in front of Swiss chateaus and nibble on Swiss chocolate...


  • Favorite Dessert - cheesecake, hands down. On our honeymoon we had red velvet cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory, and I almost melted with happiness. It was the best thing I had ever tasted in my life, and I am pretty sure if I had a week to live I would consume the entire tri-state supply en masse.
  • Favorite Vegetable - sweet potatoes. They're delicious in pretty much any form you prepare them: baked whole, baked as fries, mashed, cubed and roasted, boiled....yep, pretty much delicious all the time. 
  • Favorite Side Dish - broccoli and cheese. Yum.
  • Favorite Italian Dish - lasagna. It's been my favorite since I was quite little, and I still love it.
  • Favorite Mexican Dish - chicken enchiladas. With sour cream and no guacamole (I'm allergic to avocados).
  • Favorite Snack Food - Ritz peanut butter snack crackers.
  • Favorite Splurge - Pretzel M&Ms. Especially if they're frozen.
  • Favorite New Food - Greek yogurt. I think I like it because it reminds me of cheesecake. I just found it about a month ago and have been seduced by it's health benefits. 
  • Favorite Coffee - skinny caramel latte from Mama Carmen's on College Ave.
