Acting Like A Kid

November 21, 2009

One of the many perks of being a leader for the church youth group is that when you take them to a bounce house for a super secret special event, you get to jump around and play right along with them and they love you for it. I got to experience this place… …hopped till I dropped in a moonwalk… …climbed to the top of the mountain (which isn’t as easy as it looks)… …slid down the slide… …watched my husband and my father-in-law slide down the slide (and let me just say–priceless!)… …walked around with a goofy smile on my face for an hour… …and most importantly, loved on some kids: This is good, the life that I live.

Photoshoot With Cio!

November 16, 2009

A couple of months ago my lovely friend-of-a-friend Cio, who I had never actually met but I felt as if I had, was blogging about how she wanted to do more photoshoots. It just so happened that earlier that week I had been thinking about how I’d like some updated, quality pictures of myself to use for various things. It was perfect. We met at my house, where she was privileged to be introduced to our pups Eddie and Cleo, and then headed out to my favorite local park. The following are some of my favorite pictures that came out of it: Fantastic, right? Seriously, check out Cio’s photography website, and if you live in her area and need a…

Friday Mash-Up

November 13, 2009

Some randomness for your reading pleasure: *** One of my very best friends, Megan, is somewhat new to blogging. Well, the truth is that she blogged sporadically for awhile, and then stopped updating. So I took her off my list of links, which apparently offended motivated her. After some hearty encouragement on my part, she took it up again. She has assured me that she will be updating frequently, and she is a woman of her word. Basically what I’m trying to say is that YOU SHOULD BE READING IT. I don’t encourage just anyone to blog. Megan is a better writer than I’ll ever be; at once witty, inspiring, thought-provoking, and hilarious. She and her husband are currently living…

Inspiration For Life

October 13, 2009

I stayed with my best friend Becca in Kansas this past weekend, and she inspired me in so many different ways. It was the first time I saw her new house in its mostly-finished state. The last time I was there, last year, they hadn’t moved in yet and it was kind of a wreck. They did all the work on it themselves and now it’s adorable. Talking to her about it really inspired me to get working on my own house again, which I haven’t done a thing for in months. Some ideas I have for the house: Some open shelving in the kitchen, filled with dishes, cute baskets of produce, and spices in mismatched glass jars Plants all…

On Saturday night David and I invited our pastor’s kids Isaiah, 5, and Samuel, 3, to spend the night at our house. We obviously don’t have kids yet, but we love them and Isaiah and Sam are two of our favorites. After their parents Bryan and Misti dropped them off and we consumed some Chick-fil-a chicken nuggets, snack packs, and chocolate milk, we got right down to the business of having fun. We started with a rousing game of Spiderman Sorry, which Isaiah “won”: Then it was time to play hide and seek. My best hiding place was an empty box turned on its side which I curled up in and pushed up near the wall. It was a big…
