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???)



  1. So much fun!!! And tes i am confident God is going to do something amazing this year!! Very exciting. Cant wait ro be crafty qith you tomorrow

  2. I'm so excited for you and your new membership at a great church!! Also for your recent debt reduction....fantastic! I too love Friday's and finally, wish I could go be crafty with you girls tomorrow!
    Love you

  3. Sandi! Congratulations on paying off your first debt! That is absolutely incredible!

    Jordan and I went through FPU our sophomore year... we really couldn't apply to much of the knowledge just then... I'm excited to be able to go through the study again when we've graduated so that we can relearn the information when we can truly use it our advantage! Such a fabulous thing!
