Alyson, Brothers B & N, and Sister Little C have been working on memory verses each week, they’ve been having troubles the last few weeks, so I decided that they needed a visual reminder. I sent them this print to use as backgrounds on their phone/tablets. Hopefully this will help. ;) If I remember I will be making these available every week.
Well hello there stranger. It’s been a long time.It’s been a crazy busy first 2 weeks of April for us already. This morning we had our first downpour/thunderstorm/hail in the new house! It was weird. Also, it then turned into snow, bordering on a blizzard. No accumulation they said, not very much snow they said. They lied. But I’m sure it will be gone by the time I wake up, if it isn’t already. It was beautiful! And the moisture from it all was a major answer to prayer!
Biggest news first: My baby turned 13.
I don’t even know:
1) how the last few years have flown by. She is an awesome young woman now. She’s always been shy and prickly, and she still is, but once she lets ya past the shy, she is hilarious. And seriously amazing. She is the biggest help to me with Nephew C, and especially since we moved in to this house. It’s been a pleasure to see the person she is becoming and being so hugely blessed to be her mom all this time.
2) how in the world I have a 13-year-old daughter! My sense of humor isn’t even at a 13-year-old maturity, how in the world can my daughter be? lol
My parents had their 35th anniversary on the 1st, and we had a little get together, although with all of us expanding into families, there isn’t such a thing as a little get together. 4 years ago, my sister told my parents that she was pregnant on their anniversary. Worst April Fool’s joke ever. Best gift resulted from that though (speaking of that gift: nephew c is potty training, and he is hilarious about it.) So this year what could be funnier than claiming it again, only since she isn’t this time, she had my sister who is pregnant take a test for her, and she wrapped it up with a note. We all thought it was hilarious. The folks? Not so much.lol
There was so much that I was going to say, but ya know? Blank. I have suffered from major migraines the last few weeks, and my brain power is leaking quicker than normal because of it. There are several things I’m looking forward to showing y’all though, including something I built with my dad. But I’m waiting for a sunny day and to be home to do that! ;)
This week’s song is: You are I am by Mercy Me (as of this posting, it was on the .69 song list on iTunes if you are interested!) What is your song this week?
So we have been living here in the new place for almost 2 months…and I still haven’t showed you much of this place. There are some areas that are kind of sketch; pink and burgundy tired bathroom? with floral cutout border? Yay. Shiny-ish border in our bedroom? Super hot. Fully Wallpapered kitchen with a border, in a farm motif? Be still my heart.
The good news is our new landlord is a nice guy. He already said it would be okay if we painted and stuff, as long as it’s not wild and crazy. Like red…. guess I shouldn’t have asked around my wild and crazy coffee table…lol I reassured him that I am looking for a light gray almost white, because I was looking forward to having the accessories shine this time… well I didn’t explain that part to him… just that I wanted to go with light gray…. The color isn’t bad, it’s just a lot. It changes color all the time, at night it is almost a bright green, and during the day it varies from blah yellow, or aaah yellow.
On that note: Here is our living room right now:
My gallery wall: the front door is to the left, and to the right is our pantry door and dining area.
The short wall that the couch is sitting on:
Then the other wall is where the bookshelf and tv are. That’s it. Yeehaw. ;)
Hopefully I will be able to share pictures of some other spaces we have soon. Our weather hasn’t been super cooperative, and when it has, we have had plans. But I will work on it! =)
