Proud To Be An American!
This week I choose not to do a "Red Letter Friday" post again. I started out sharing Bible verses that were in Red. Then, last week decided to share one that was not in the "red". This week, the same. Am I phasing out of the red? No. Just from time to time, I will share a verse that really spoke to me this past week and I hope it will speak to you, too. Enjoy and have a great weekend!!!!! I'm really excited about mine.
My babies have birthdays 2 weeks apart, exactly. The number one question I get is did we plan that. The answer is no. I like to start planning for things like this early. I've actually had in my mind for months that I wanted her birthday party to be a Tea Party. A lot of people have said that I could have their birthday parties together, but ummmmmm, no thanks. I went ALL OUT for my son's 1st birthday (I'll post about it one day), so I'm going to do the same for the little Princess Pie. :) My mother-in-law and sister-in-law were nice enough to give me an adorable white table with 4 little chairs and I'm thinking she'll just be getting into using it when she turns one. I would love to get her this tea set for her birthday to go on her little white table.
As you know, I'm collecting inspiration photos for my little Buddy's big boy room one day soon! We are still in transition mode since we are renting our current house and I can't wait to paint and make everything our own. I do love these photos I posted the other day for big boy rooms, but I came across this post and I have to say.....it takes the cake! I love everything about this room, I'm just in love with it! I hope Sarah doesn't mind that I copy her just a little bit. :) I've always been told that copying is the highest form of compliment. Here are some photos that Sarah was nice enough to let me share of her
I actually took these pictures at the end of last summer, but their mommy had a new baby and they bought a new house, we we are re-visiting them! I'm so glad we did because it gave me a chance to edit some and make them even better! The above are a few of my favorites.
Today I'm sharing a Bible verse I really love, but it is not the words of Jesus. Just a verse that really spoke to me this past week. I get a Bible verse automatically emailed to me every morning from this site. It never fails that it's just the words I need to read that morning when I check my email. So, today's red letters (without the red) are:
Now that my baby girl is 8 months, I'm starting to run out of time to finish her nursery!!! I probably need to clarify from my last post about her room. Did I make it sound like I had done NOTHING?! :) We have done a lot. In fact, I counted how many things I had left to do while rocking her the other day. Yea, I'm weird like that. I then went and made a list of those things. Seeing things on paper makes it better in getting those things done. And, my friend Angela once said it so well --- "I get great satisfaction from crossing things off my list". Me too these days. So, all the major things are done. The room is painted. The baby bedding is complete (my mom and I made it!). All the furniture is in there. Here is what I lack:
