Had a great event today at church!! I’m so glad women had a chance to connect with eachother and get inspired to decorate for this Christmas season. More details to follow; I really wanted to get the photos up right away!
I had to share this cute frame my friend, Sarah Rudberg, made last February. I really wanted to “Pin” it on pinterest but you can only pin from blogs. I think it is such a cute idea!
A word from my husband Mike:
It was windy yesterday. Windy and rainy. The kind of storm that’s fun to watch from inside while drinking a warm beverage. We were enjoying it quite a bit when suddenly our power went out again. The first time it went out it lasted for a second but this time there was a much longer delay. So Lisa and I sat and enjoyed the silence. After about ten minutes we got adventurous and talked about our budget. After 15 minutes I decided to light some candles an fetch the flashlight from down the hallway. It was at this point I noticed a beacon of light shining from under a doorway in the hall. My first thought was “man that’s a bright candle.” upon further inspection I realized it was a lightbulb. It was only then that I realized the entire house had power except the room we were in because the most recent outage had tripped the breaker for our living room and our living room alone. Basically we sat in darkness for just over 20 minutes voluntarily. It was a really nice break.
Here’s just a little trick that works to get that pesky pit out easily
First, I cut in the avocado into two halves.
Then I scoop out one of the sides (the one without the pit)
Next, I do the ol’ “get the pit out by getting it stuck on the knife” trick.
This is where the magic starts. I then take the empty side and use it as a barrier between my had and the pesky pit. I then grab the pit off the knife.
My hand is clean!
Add chopped red onion, lime, fresh cilantro, tomatoes, salt and ENJOY!
WoW! It’s been quite a while since I blogged….
Life took at turn last September when I decided to go to Beauty School! I’ve been liking it a lot, but it’s definitely changed our lives. Now that the sun is staying up longer (and we’re actually seeing the sun) I’ve been feeling the “itch” to get some projects done at home again.
Sunday was mother’s day and it is for-sure my “# 2″ of the 7 years I’ve been a mom (#1 was getting a Kitchen-aid). Mike, Jayce and I spent some great family time weeding and cleaning up part of the flower bed in the front yard. With no baseball right after church, no youth group and no evening church for Jayce . . . it was a slice of heaven!!! We haven’t had a day like that for months.
Now, off to get that “to-do” list out . . . .
I’m feeling inspired by getting something accomplished that doesn’t have to do with cutting hair, lightening hair, coloring hair, perming hair . . . hair.
