Pink and Gold Monogram Door Hanger

In my previous post, I showed you my latest crafty effort -- this cute pink and gold front door hanger.

How much is that doggie in the window?

I wanted to have something pink and gold to match the baby shower theme. I dug around in some of my (still unpacked) boxes and found this large wooden "S" I'd bought years ago.

I think it cost about $12 at the time, and it is HUGE.

Sweet Pink and Gold Baby Shower

Y'all, we've been in the house for four months today.


Dining room, sans table -- still waiting for that bad boy to go on sale.

That seems crazy to me, but at times it feels like we've been here for years.

Welp, It finally happened...

We knew it would. Only a matter of time.

And, being who I am, I figured it would be me.

I fell down the stairs.

My sock-covered foot slipped off the edge of the tread and WOOSH! Down she goes!

Thank the LORD that I was on the 3rd step from the bottom when it happened, and not the 3rd step from the top.

I was coming downstairs from my office after work, following my "daily commute" to the kitchen to cook dinner. Had a closed water bottle in one hand and a glass mason jar half full of sweet tea (as you do) in the other ... thinking about "what to cook for dinner but first I need to get the mail oh I'll get Beebee to get it for me so I can start..." and WHOA NELLIE! My right foot slipped and my left foot dragged under me all the way to the floor.

All I could think was "Lord, please don't let me break the glass!!"

Yes - I had my priorities in order. After all, it's an aqua blue mason jar, people.

Our New Adventure -- Pretty Girl Update

Hey, peeps,

I apologize for my lack of posts lately. We've been stupid busy.

  • We packed up the old house (which took over a WEEK. Seriously -- we have TOO. MUCH. STUFF.)
  • We cleaned the old house. And then cleaned some more. And then cleaned some more. And then did some cleaning touch-ups.
  • We moved into the apartment -- AKA our temporary domicile. 
  • We learned that our pups are VERY picky about where they poop, especially when it's not in their own yard.
  • We learned that our pups can hold their bodily functions for a full THREE DAYS. 
  • We realized that just because you have a closing appointment for a specific date/time, that doesn't always mean the closing will happen on that specific date/time.
  • We found out that the VA can be difficult to work with and that they like to decide 90 minutes before a closing that they have "some more questions that need to be answered before giving final approval to the buyer."
  • We grew (and are continuing to grow) in our faith and trust in God to get us through a very trying time, especially when it comes to our closing being indefinitely postponed.
As you can see, these past two weeks have not been the most pleasant of our lives. But we continue to see God's fingerprints all over this process, and we're waiting and watching for him to show up and show off! 

Now -- to the fun stuff ...
