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...
