2 arms and 2 legs and all my fingers,
the 5 senses,
our home and
all the little blessings in life.
We are so blessed!
"I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart,
and I will glorify your name forever." Psalm 86:12

I really can't believe it!
I was blessed with some wonderful birthday gifts!
Alan got me this Candlewick punch bowl. (Not this exact one, but one
just like it). Mine was ordered off Ebay and
hasn't come in the mail yet.
It is very similar to the red and white polka dot one
I already have. Mom mentioned that
peanut-butter balls would be very pretty on it because
of the brown and lime green.
Paige also got me this little glass dome.
It is so adorable!
The present sitting inside it was from Mom and Dad.
They got me some black bling-bling earrings.
Mom and Dad also got me this Cheese ball platter and knife.
Love the black and white and the "S"!
Lauren gave me this fun purse. I love it!
My in-laws gave me this book! I have been collecting these each year since 2006. It has great decorating ideas and recipes!
Please pray that our house will sell soon!
It has been about 2 months since anyone has looked at it.
Please pray that God will prepare a place for us when
our house does sell!

of love for Lauren.
Lauren and I have quite the special friendship.
We have been friends for over 10 years now.
I'm certain we will be friends for many more years to come.
Sometimes I wonder why we are so blessed to have each other.
How do you put our friendship into words?
We know each other so well.
I love watching her as a momma.
And so thankful that encouragement comes right when needed...
For example, I am talking to my friend Sarah H. from nursing school tonight.
She and I have used to work night shift together in the STICU.
We don't talk often, but when we do we have so much to say! :)
She asked me about our house...had it sold? etc...
And of course I had to tell her no activity...in weeks...maybe months...
That it is so frustrating...and it seems like it will never happen...
She told me she knew exactly how I felt...and she probably shouldn't have asked me...
She and her husband recently had their house on the market for a year.
And in God's timing it sold!
She said it will sell...God's plan is perfect...there is probably something better out there for us...
I know all that...but forget about all that...because its thrown in my face almost daily.
It was just good to hear...so timely...so true...
Because "if anything matters, everything matters".
Thanks Sarah! I so needed that!
Well, I am trying to upload some pictures I took today. I took them in RAW rather
than L whatever that means...and I can't upload them...Pioneer Woman failed to mention
that. Oh well...
Well, it's been a great day!
Tomorrow is my Monday!
Time for bed!

I'm thankful for such a beautiful day outside!
I've been working on my Christmas list!
I need to wrap two presents. One for Nathan and
one for Laura and her baby girl who is un-named at the time!
Alan and I spent all afternoon with this little man yesterday!
He has given us a little itch...
cute birthday gift!
Here it is!
It is really hard to capture the cuteness of it!
And for those of you wondering where I got it...Etsy of course!
I just bought William P. Young's The Shack. Maggie posted on her blog about it. Laura told me I needed to read it. And Lauren's mom has read it. And loved it.
Here is a picture of Maggie's new puppy, Janie! She is too cute!
I spent part of the morning browsing online for a new camera lens. I think I have decided on the Canon EF 50mmf/1.8.
Is anybody else ready for the election to be over with?

in the breakfast room...
Even though we are only "home" every few weekends...
I am so thankful for my husband!
The picture below is my take on a mini-caramel apple...
The recipe came from my friend April's blog!
Alan told me they looked better than they tasted and I must agree!
Oh well, at least they were cute!
I really had no idea.
(I always get teased because I inventory everything!
So on Saturday night...I counted them...192!
I spreaded them out on our guest bedroom bed!
Solid in front! Designs in the back!
These are "preppy"!
These 6 ornaments came from Goodwill a few weekends ago!
