Finally home after being gone for two weeks! I had a wonderful time in WA celebrating my parents 25th Wedding Anniversary! I had a blast putting the party together with my sister, brother, sister-in-law, and all of the wonderful people who attend my parent’s church.
I love the way the lights formed a heart behind my parents! I didn’t even notice it until I was looking back through the pics the next day! Read The Rest
I am so excited to be launching a new blog! Not only am I interested in home decor, diy, crafts, recipes, and so on… I also LOVE fashion! My new blog is up and running and you can check out My Mod Style for inspiration, outfits, ideas, hairstyles, and more! Let me know what you think! Read The Rest
I know I’m not alone when I say that I HATE car trouble! A couple of weeks ago our timing belt broke on our XTerra, so we’ve been driving my husbands blue work van (Oh joy!). I will admit that I am grateful that we at least had something to drive!!
We finally got the car up and running on Friday after my husband and brother-in-law spent the week working on it. I haven’t been home all week, so I haven’t been able to get anything new up on the blog. It was definitely nice to wake up this morning with nowhere to be (until later this afternoon) and be able to just relax at home!
One great thing about not being home during the day is that the house has stayed so clean! However, I don’t mind picking up and cleaning during the day if it means I get to be in my own home! Sticking to my daily and weekly cleaning lists have also really helped me keep things clean. Usually, it only takes a week and the house is a cluttered mess again, but the to-do list is helping stay me on top of things before it gets messy.
I got an update from my parents about a building they are interested in! (Read their story here!) They should find out this week if they will be able to lease the building. If they get it, the will still need to purchase building materials, paint, sound equipment, and a keyboard. There is also a possibility that they will have pews donated to them for free! Please check out the link and donate or share for support this cause.
I’ll be heading to Seattle in a couple of weeks to celebrate the 25th wedding anniversary of my parents and the birth of my cousins baby boy. I am so excited to be able to go home for a visit! There is definitely no place like the amazing state of Washington!
I hope all my readers have an amazing week! Keep checking back for new posts and share my blog with your friends a family!
Some of you may have noticed the new button in the right sidebar…
My parents pastor a small church in Kirkland, Washington and the church, Apostolic Tabernacle of Kirkland has been renting another church building for the past ten years. Several weeks ago the church administrators informed my parents that they would have to find a new building for Apostolic Tabernacle in 60 days.
Anyone from the Seattle area knows how expensive it is to rent or buy in this area, and the church they were renting had given my home church a great deal so that they could afford to be in a building. Coming up with money to go into another place is going to take a miracle from God, and YOU can be a part of that miracle!
It would be amazing if Apostolic Tabernacle could purchase their own place and not have to worry about something like this happening again. They are an amazing group of people with an incredible message of truth. They have a great music department, and it would be awesome if they could continue to do the music that they love! This won’t be possible if they have to have church in their homes or an apartment cabana.
You can help by donating to help them purchase or lease a building by going to GoFundMe, and you can also share this link (http://www.gofundme.com/church-building-needed) with all of your contacts and encourage them to check it out. It breaks my heart that the church has been put in this position, but I know God can move on people’s hearts to give in support of such a great cause!
I thought I would do a little update on what’s going on in my life… =) Read The Rest
My husband and I just finished a fun project for my living room! So excited about the way it turned out! Check back here tomorrow for the reveal!
