Free amazon $25 gift card!

In order to get the $25 gift card, you have to follow a few simple steps!

Use that link to sign up for the Christmas contest (which just requires giving your name and email address) then invited 15 friends to sign up too. You could be the next person to win a free amazon giftcard!

Thanks to for this tip!


Saturday is here again, which basically means Mike is working all day and I have some time to myself (except for the time I'm planning to spend with Mom today).

Also, as it seems to be becoming a habbit these days, Zoe (for those of you who don't know Zoe she is our little Yorki-Poo) has been waking me up almost immediately after Mike goes to work...which by the way is EARLY!

So needless to say, I'm up much earlier this morning than I had planned on being! As I was sitting here eating breakfast and browsing the web, I finally found a blog that I had been looking for! Mom had shown it to me a few days ago and it had these great reuseable snack bags on it and I really wanted to try my hand at making one! I found the tutorial here and I think I am going to try it out today! I'll let you know how it goes!

Happy Saturday everyone!

Letters of Love

"Letters of Love"
I believe that's what I am going to call this!

This project actually began because I had the idea to hang photos spelling the word "love" in our baby's room! But, I wanted to offer it to others of you out there who might be searching for a Christmas gift for a loved one, or something to decorate your own home with!
I can make just about any word of your choice, either in sepia tone or black and white. My thought is that I would simply sell you the prints and allow you to frame them or hang them however you wish. If you would like, I will frame them for you for an extra cost (as long as you give me the type of framing you would like).
Please contact me if you'd like more details/information.
Prices would be $1.50 per letter (4x6 inch photo)
$1.75 per letter (5x7 inch photo)
plus shipping (unless you are local, I can hand deliver) :)
As I mentioned previously, if you would like for me to frame it for you, that can be arranged but there will be an additional price depending on the length of the word, etc.
I would love to hear any thoughts you might have! :)

Diapering I think this post is officially marking my blogging as a Momma! :) But I wanted to put it out there for any of you who may have some words of wisdom, thoughts, advice, ideas, etc!
I am pretty certain that I want to use cloth diapers when diapering my baby. This may seem like a strange concept to some of you, but to others it is very familiar. Cloth seems to be gaining popularity! My only struggle is knowing WHICH brand to buy!
There are SO MANY CHOICES! I think I might be set on Bummis brand,but I'm still not sure.
Anyone out there tried Bummis? Or cloth for that matter? Any thoughts on what's worked best for you?
All comments are appreciated! :)
Thanks a bunch!

Believing & Trusting

Recently I have been going through one of Beth Moore's Bible Studies called Believing God. I must say that it is definitely challenging me right at this particular moment.
At the beginning of the sessions I was challenged to compose a list of areas in my life where I would like God to teach me to REALLY BELIEVE HIM. Last week I took a glance at that list (because I didn't remember what I had written) and to my surprise the item on the tip-top of the list was exactly what God had been and is continuing to work in me.
My struggle isn't with knowing that God will do what He promises (I KNOW that in my head) but the struggle comes with living like I KNOW it!
The past few weeks have really been a struggle for Mike and I as we try to decide what is best for our family in the days we are living now and in the near future, but God is using this trying time to cause me to have to BELIEVE and TRUST Him for things that I would typically try to handle myself.
Believing IN God and Believing God are two very different things, and though its hard sometimes, I'm Believing God, His Word, and His promises in this trying time. :)

chilly days, candles, and coffee!

One of my very favorite things about this time of year is when Starbucks begins serving coffee in the red holiday cups! I'm not exactly sure why, but for some reason it just gives me warm fuzzies! :)
Yesterday Michael said that his store broke out the red cups for the first time, so this evening it was rainy, dreary, and cold, but we decided to warm up with a nice cup of Starbucks Thanksgiving Blend (one of our favorites).

While we were at the mall we stopped in for coffee and went into the Yankee Candle store (because I had a coupon). It just seemed to festive to be in there with all the Fall and Christmas scents wafting through the air. Needless to say, I have begun to get super excited for Christmas and it is only the beginning of November. Oh well! Going to enjoy every second of this Holiday Season!

Sewing Attempt

For the past few days I have been wanting to try out a little sewing project. I am really not that much of a seamstress, so this task was something that I was both nervous and excited about!
I was wanting to make some diaper burp cloths for some friends of ours who recently had a baby girl (I will eventually make some for our baby too).
So here is the finished product. It really only took about 45 minutes to make both of these, and I am sure as I get more practice it won't even take that long!
They aren't exactly PERFECT, but I thought they turned out pretty cute! :)
