New Look!

Well....I'm just about finished with my re-design so I guess time to ask, "What do you think of the new look?" Yes, it's extremely simple and kind of plain, but it fits me better that way! : )

Also, check out the new tabs across the top!

***Caution: Construction Ahead***

I have severe ADD when it comes to the layout/design of my blog. For a long time, I've been wanting to take the time to completely design and customize the look and feel of this, so it is completely "me." Know what I mean?

Well I'm happy to say, the time has come!

Therefore, if you check in at some point during the next few days (or week...who's counting?) and things look a little "off" please take heart I will get it fixed! :)

See you on the other side, hopefully with a new fresh look!

Recent Events

It's finally Friday again!! Does anyone else feel completely different on Friday than any other day of the week? Since there's a party going on in my brain and I'm having a hard time organizing my thoughts, I'm just going to give you a random run-down of recent events (in no particular order) for your reading pleasure.

Humor me, okay?

1. We joined Gateway Church last Saturday! I was excited, but had NO idea the sense of "belonging" we were missing out on without being an official part of a church. So thankful to be part of the body!

2. I'm headed to The Fabric Yard with Kari tomorrow, to look for fabric to re-cover my kitchen chair cushions. Just being in that store makes you feel all crafty. Love it!

3. We recently got a new kitchen table! It has a glass top with iron legs and iron chairs with a cushion. Right now the cusions are white, but I'm thinking re-covering in a bright pattern would be a fun way to brighten up our white kitchen. (Um, told you this was in no particular order. Please see No. 2 above...)

4. TOMS are the best shoes ever. Period.

5. FPU has started up again. If you haven't heard of the class or aren't sure if it's for you or not, I promise you that it is! Whether or not you have debt, this class is life changing and I can't express that enough! We are hoping that we can continue to be involved in this great ministry, and are looking forward to being small group mentors in the fall!

6. I think God is going to do something amazing in 2012. I can just feel it, can't you?

7. Please see Number 4 above.

8. I was able to go to the women's event at church last night. Big bold step for me, because I didn't know what to expect. Thankfully I was able to meet a friend from our last FPU small group, so there was a friendly (and familiar) face expecting me. It was an amazing night and I am SO glad I went!

9. It's Friday!!!!!

10. We paid off our first debt last week. You would have thought we won the lottery, we were THAT excited. So excited, in fact, we took a picture of the check before we mailed it! (now.....what do you do with a picture of a check???)
