Guilty as charged

So in the last 2 days, 3 girls have either mentioned my blog, or mentioned my lack of posts lately. True. It has been a while. And there is no real reason why. I did get a new job as a nanny 2 days a week. I could complain for a bit about this job, but let’s just say it’s the most awkward experience I’ve ever had… Each time I go! I don’t know why they need a 9-5 nanny when the mom is home ALL day… Or she invites her friends and family over for lunch and we ALL eat lunch together… Awkward.

In other news, brian and I got iPhones! In fact… This whole post will be written from the phone… Oooooo πŸ˜‰

In sewing news, I made 2 yellow seersucker pillows for our couch. It really “springs” the place up πŸ˜‰ around easter, my sis and u were remembering how each year my mom took us shopping for Easter dresses. A fun tradition since we were kiddos. This year, we didn’t. Partly because my dad lost his job, but probably more cus I am old and married now. Boo. Once realizing this, I decided to get domestic once again and I made myself an easter dress. The funny thing is that I was so determined to make it and wear it to church on Easter, that even tho I am a procrastinator, I sewed the dress at 8am… 1 hour before church! Haha. But I wore it with pride πŸ˜‰ I’ll have to get some pics eventually. I’m also flipping stoked about my new camera. I got a canon eos 20d. And since I’m a dealmeister I have to share my deal. This camera was selling for 1200 when it first came out. Now… Even tho it’s a couple years old, we got it for 500 new-in-box cus the camera store is going out of buisness!! Yay! I’m so excited about it πŸ™‚

I know this is a long post this far, but 2 things I would love prayer about:
1). My parents are in Redlands,ca right now interviewing/candidating for an executive pastor job. I pray that the lord would make things clear for them and that they would follow HIS leadership. Selfishly, it would be hard for me to have them so far away… Especially since we buddies πŸ˜‰ we double date with my parents probably once a week!

2). Brian and I are praying about our future. Specifically for next year. A unique opportunity has presented itself. It would require a lot of faith and trust on my part (brian is a lot more easy going about change than I am). I’m not going to say a ton cus we are still in the begining stages of thinking/praying about this. But I will say it is a 12 month committment that would give us great insight about what the lord has for us in regards to co staff and other ministry in the future.

More posts to come… πŸ˜‰

These are pics of the pillow I made, the kids I nanny, our new camera, and my parents πŸ˜‰

Andrews wedding

So how sad am I? I had a lovely time in Atlanta at a dear friends wedding and I wore a dress that I made… And I forgot to take pics!!! Silly me. I have these 2 pics from my phone, but they don’t do it justice. It was so pretty. On a dock overlooking the lake. Ken currie married them under a arbor of lillies. Sara was gorgeous! Andrew cried when she walked toward him. A sweet tender moment. I got choked up listening to ken describe the relationship between the bride and the bridegoom like that of Christ and the church. I remembered our own wedding. Each wedding is like a vow renewel for brian and I as we hold hands and knowingly nudge eachother and smile. The reception was a couple blocks away at the home of the woman so wrote gone with the wind. So pretty. White twinkle lights and candles and flowers everywhere. We ate and danced under the stars.

I am so happy for them! I can’t wait to see how the lord will continue to use them in the lives of students in mn. Congrats andrew & sara!

(ha ha… i wrote this on my iphone while on the ride home… i just reread it! funny typos! i think i fixed them all now tho πŸ™‚

I forgot how much I love colores! Blue sky. Greed grass. Purple and yellow flowers. God is so creative and wonderful! I don’t think us minnesotans would be as thankful for spring and sunshine if it weren’t for the tough winters! These trees are in bloom all over Atlanta! I LOVE them!

So we left for atlanta at 9 last night and got to our hotel at 7 tonight. It shouldn’t have taken that long! I guess we were having too much fun sleeping at rest stops for an hour and eating at cracker barrel… Yummy breakfast. But we are here. We had a dinner date at steak n shake. Yummy butterfinger shake! Now it’s time to actually sleep while horizontal! (although sleeping in the element for an hour or two wasn’t that bad cus the seats lay pretty flat)

Tomorrow is Andrews wedding. I’m looking forward to a warm sunny 75 degree day! And I’m excited to wear the dress I made πŸ˜‰
