Me standing next to my dream car...
This car fits my personality. Zippy, orange, little, fun, not too fancy...

Last weekend we (Janelle, Trung, & I) went to Rockford Illinois

We spent the weekend with these lovely people! (Solverson)
Thanks for a fabulous time. We love you.

We also got to spend time with Janelle's amazing friend, Jodi.

I'm homesick, GOD, for your salvation,
I love it when you show yourself!
Invigorate my soul so I can praise you well,
use your decrees to put iron in my soul.
And should I wander off like a lost sheep--seek me!
I'll recognize the sound of your voice.
---Psalms 119:174-176---

A couple of months ago we found Pali furniture on Ebay, and it happened to be only 3 hours away in Cleveland Ohio, so we rented a Uhaul and transported it home ourselves. We got it for less than a third of its retail value. A huge find!

The beautiful green Afghan is a handmade gift from my program director's wife, Merri Lewis.
The french country wall hanger is a handmade gift from our dear friend Shirlene.

The print of the shepherdess was a wedding gift that fits nicely in the room. We have a large print of the Peaceable Kingdom that will be hanging above the crib. The theme of the room is going to be the Lion and the Lamb from Revelation.

We also found Italian bedding last week on clearance at a local specialty baby store. We are having fun finding the good deals!

I got tagged to play a game by a more inspired runner than I.

Here are the rules:
1. Write your own six word memoir
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you want
3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere
4. Tag at least five more blogs with links; and
5. Leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!
