Trent was out of town all week. Every year he takes a fishing trip with his buddies and this year he headed to Michigan.

He said he had to work hard to catch these fish! (Looks like his hard work paid off because these bass are honkers!)

I’ve been blessed with a husband that works hard to provide and take care of his family so I don’t mind that he goes on these trips. But I sure do miss him while he’s gone!


My Closed Kitchen

my closed kitchen

Since Trent was out of town, I decided to close the kitchen for a few days. Other than feeding myself I didn’t do much cooking or cleaning. (I can’t believe I’m showing you a picture of my dirty dishes, but hey, I like to keep it real around here.) I must admit that it was rather nice to close the kitchen for a few days and not worry about it!

Have you ever closed your kitchen? :O)


Relationship Highs and Lows

This week I hit a few relationship speed bumps. I had some low moments (like we all do) and had to remind myself that I’m living for an audience of one.

But even amidst the lows, the Lord provided quite a few highs. I found myself encouraged by precious notes and getting together with godly friends! Hey, there’s no promise that this life is going to be easy, but I’m thankful for the rays of sunshine the Lord gives us throughout the dark moments.


Baby News

Those of you that are moms know how daunting the task of picking out a child’s name is. This is a decision that your child will live with for the rest of its life.

I looked through a baby name book and even looked online at top baby names but nothing jumped out at me. It’s a good thing that we have plenty of time to choose a name cause this may take a while!

Did you find it hard to pick your children’s names?

baby closet

Yesterday my mom came over and helped me clean out the closet in the baby’s room. (I thought I took a before picture when we cleaned out the room, but obviously I didn’t.) I told her that it’s amazing how much junk stuff we accumulate in our houses. Sadly most of this stuff didn’t make its way to the trash or even donate pile but found a new home in other parts of our house!

I’m glad this project’s done. Thanks mom for your help – it would have taken me forever to do this project by myself!

And just in case you’re wondering, no, the closet isn’t yellow. It’s actually white but the lighting makes it look otherwise.

Well, that’s a peek into our week. I can’t wait to hear what you’ve gotten yourself into this week!
