Weekly Update

1. Hannah decided she wanted to go without the pull-up last night. I spoke positively, but had my doubts. She did it though! Totally dry. I am so excited about this. I thought this day would never come. Now that I've done a tough one, all others will be easy, right? :)

2. I got a job! I'm going to be helping improve and promote (I'll put a real link up here soon.) Hopefully will be 10-15 hours/week. This will take a lot of the squeeze off us financially. Thank you, God... Found it on I have probably applied for 10 or 15 jobs there, or more, that I was totally qualified for. Just so you know what's involved before you go pay the $30 fee.

3. We have a Maeve (have you seen the new site?) consultation tonight. We have yet to not have one of these turn into a client, so that's good news! Lots of new gowns will be on the website in the next few months! Maybe we'll even make some money at it this year. ;)

4. I have to say, I love the book we're reading for our small group. Of course, we picked it out, so... :) It just is the way I want to parent...with the understanding of how much God loves me and how I am unconditionally loved, reflecting that to our children, without backing down on important stuff. I'm way ahead in the reading, I must confess.

5. My library books are late again. Why can I not ever get them back on time? It's silly. Does anyone else have this problem?

6. I decided that I would schedule a time and just start playing worship at the prayer center at church. I set it up as a small group so I (and anyone who wants to come...ahem!) can use the free childcare. The only time they had that worked for me was Thursday mornings, so Thursday mornings it is! 11am... I'm reeeeally rusty, but I'd love if you'd come worship when you're free. Or if you want to just bring your kids and worship with them I totally don't mind! My kids would love to roam around in there and check things out... It feels terrific to just sit at the piano and sing in that room. I have great memories of that...

This has taken faaaaarrr too long this morning. Gotta run! How was your week?


  1. I so wish I could get Andrew to potty train...ugh.

    Your new site looks great-congrats! If you need help photographing the gowns, you know where to call:)

  2. It'll happen...I thought Hannah would never come around. Just don't do what I did, and make a battle of the wills out of it - no fun!

    Thanks! We keep getting emails from photogs wanting to help out, but I'm SURE we'll call you again soon. :)

  3. One of these Thursdays we'll show up at WPC...Ava loves praise & worship
