But first, some thoughts and ramblings.
:: I can't begin to describe how done I am with summer. My sister called me the other day that she had snow. I might have been a little jealous since we've had triple digit temps this week. It's so hard to drink a hot latte when it's so hot! Bring on the fall. . . and pumpkin!!!
:: Halloween is starting to come to mind. I think we are going to be staying home again and getting to know our neighbors. I want to do something creative, but I am not sure what at this point. Thank goodness for Pinterest! Oh, and I need to come up with costumes for my Jedi and possibly a super hero or a surfer for the littlest little.
:: I've been playing with Stampin' Up's Yee Haw stamp set. It's so cute and since Ethan's party with a Lone Ranger/Modern Cowboy party I just had to buy it! I can't wait to show you how I used it for the party and then for some baby cards I am working on for our Family Ministries at church.
:: I downloaded this book for free on my Kindle this summer and I couldn't put it down. I then bought book 2 and now I am reading book 3. I had no idea until half way through the book that it was a 400 page book! It's not free now, but it's only 99 cents! So worth it though! I highly recommend it!
:: I found this blog post about decorating your house on a budget. Great ideas! But, seriously! I wanted the same couch (not white, though) and bought an IKEA ektorp! Great minds think alike!
:: I really want to make a family command center (you know, when I have spare time!). I like this idea, this one, and this one.
:: I am always looking for good lunch ideas! Annie's Eats has some great ideas! I plan on trying a few soon!
:: Up until this week, I was probably the only person without a pair of ballet flats. Well, that what I was thinking anyways. But I found some great deals on some at the Gap and Kohls this week and I spent less than 20 dollars total! Seriously excited! Now to find me a black pair!
:: Thinking about starting this with our 6 year old since he doesn't want to play soccer this Fall. I think it would be fun for him.
:: I started a new Bible Study last week! I am co-leading a table this year and I am having so much fun already (it's only been 1 week!). We are doing Pricilla Shirer's Gideon and It is so good! I love that I have been finishing up this Joshua study over the summer and it Gideon just follows right along! I really want to go back and do the She Reads Truth Hosea study. Since it just ended, I might just do that.
And finally, if you are in need of a good laugh. . . I highly recommend this post! It made my day!
Bring on the new week!
