Never blog on an empty stomach...

Well, here I am... blogging, as promised again.

It was supposed to be "Show Us Your Life" Friday, but then I realized, the topics only went through June.

Normally I would still be able to think of something, but as of right now... I can't. What I can do is show you something I found this week on the internet that completely has made my week. It's the cutest thing!


Agh! That is entirely too much cuteness! I have it on my desktop here at work and it literally brings a smile to face everytime I see it.

I think I am about to order a pizza and pick it up before going home. Sounds tasty... and I am starving!

Tomorrow, Saturday, we will be introducing a new service at church. This is called "The Message" and will be held in the evening. I'm on the team and need to think of creative ways to decorate and set the appropriate mood. Guess I'll be heading to Hobby Lobby tomorrow morning!

THEN... Sunday morning, during second service, Chris will be doing communion! First time! He did his second baptism last week and I have been so proud of him. This week, he'll say it all... words of institution alllll the way down to the benediction! Prayers for a successful Sunday to my husband!

We watched 'Adventures in Babysitting' last night after our (oh so refined) meal of hamburger helper. That movie is truly ridiculous, but I love it.

Looks like slop doesn't it? Eh, it tastes good though. Speaking of tasting good... I have a pizza cooking for me at Papa Johns. It's pretty exciting. Well, as exciting as I am going to get today.

Have a blessed weekend!

Seriously... I never keep up with this! I say I am, have great intentions... and never do! I'm going to try and change that. I need to keep up with this. Not only can I chronicle our lives, but I can use it as an outlet. It's good for me. Something to hold me accountable.

We'll see how this goes. If you ever DO read my posts (the two a year) then you will notice a new background and header. I have also added some songs...

Before you continue to read, you need to know something about my last post. I was in a really dark place. Chris and I had been having some problems in our marriage. Nothing major, but in a way, they were. We just weren't "us". It was in this time, I wrote that. I considered deleting it, but then thought maybe it's fine. It's my blog afterall. It was exactly what I was feeling. So it stays.

I am happy to report that we are getting there. We have to still work at it, like any marriage. Our lives are so hectic, ALL the time, that making time for us usually takes a backseat. We are managing that and learning how to work around it. In March of 2011... we'll have been married 5 years! God has really been working in both of us and it shows in our lives and our love for one another.

To hold myself accountable, I'm going to try and do a daily theme for awhile. Monday's will be a weekend recap. On Tuesday's I'll discuss something in the news, a book, or the likes. Wednesday... 'What I'm loving'. Thursday will be what is going on in our lives or what is coming up. And finally, Friday- I will participate in Kelly's Korner "Show Us Your Life", or just randomnly blog about something. Surely I can find something to say on each of those days, right?

So, with that said... Thursday it is!

Last week, for the third year in a row, I spent time in Allen at my best friend, Keri's school. I did her bulletin board and Chris helped me redo her library. The theme for her school this year was 'kindness' and I really had a hard time with it. We decided to go with "pour up a cup of kindness" and have a coffee theme! Pics below.
Here is her outside wall. The kids' names are on coffee beans!

For each square (where work can be displayed) I put a decorative corner and spoon!

Here is the library. It replaced the covered wagon we did a few years ago.

One wall of the library. I found the wall decals at Hobby Lobby. LOVE them!

The orchids are stuck in actual coffee grounds, looks like dirt- but smells much better!

The entrance to her coffee "shop".

I really enjoyed doing her room, as I always do! Chris also did a great job with the awning. And look how organized her library is! She finally got her baskets that she has been wanting! Love it!

Okay, that's enough for today. Until tomorrow...
