El Salvador and Guatemala

On Wednesday morning, myself and 3 others from The Bridge Church will be heading to El Salvador and Guatemala for a vision trip for our missions month project for February 2011. I am an independent person, but since being married, this has changed slightly for me. I haven't been out of the country without Hubs since right before we started dating...and Haiti was an experience. Granted, I was traveling alone that time and to a place I had never been before.

This will be my 4th time to El Salvador. I am excited to go and see what God has in store for our team and for The Bridge Church and reconnect with those I haven't seen in 4 years. However, I am just now realizing I'm going to miss Hubs and the pups an awful lot.

Craft Monday: Home Made Planters

I have been looking for a hobby, and let me tell you, have I found some.

I made this about a month ago, and had a request from my sister and friend to make one.

So what is better than one planter?


The more times I make this planter, the easier it gets.

My sister got hers last weekend when she was in town and Sarah will be getting hers soon...

I have had a friend tell me I should consider making this item and selling...what do you think? Does it limit me?

Mini Vacay in SoCal

Like how each word in my title was an abbreviation? That's mainly because I'm lazy ;)

This weekend, Hubs and I headed down to SoCal with my parents. My sister and brother-in-law live down there, so we decided to go visit them and do some fun stuff too.

Lunch. Ikea. Snack. Dodger Game. Dinner.

(I never thought I would see so much blue in my entire life! Hubs was there to watch the game, I was there for the garlic fries!)

Breakfast. Disneyland. Lunch. California Adventures.

Best ride, hands down, is California Screaming. Second best, Toy Story Mania.

Nap. Dinner. Disneyland. Dessert.

Breakfast with best friend. Driving. Snack. More driving.

I'm just now realizing we sure did eat a lot!

I sure am glad to be home...now I can rest!

Seems Very Simple

In Matthew 22:36-39, we read this:

"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'

As far as I can tell, we are called to love God and love others (and that entails a lot!!!)

How will you show others they matter today?

Craft Monday: Scrapbook-ing-ish

I don't think I am very creative, so when I decided to make my sister a scrapbook that encaptured all of the memories from her wedding (showers, bachelorette party, rehearsal, wedding, reception) I didn't know what I was thinking. She made one for me, and I felt like I should make one for her.

Although it isn't my thing, I kicked its butt. I'm not gonna lie, I did a pretty amazing job for my first scrapbook ever and especially because I did it all from scratch (bought seperate sheets, stickers, put it all together myself). Yep, I am tooting my own horn.

Here are some of the pictures!
