I would like to introduce you to...

I would love for you to meet 2 wonderful blog writers!

The first is my wonderfully talented mother. She's blogged before, but finally found a name that catered to all of her gifts! It is called Sew. Cook. Create., and I enjoy everything she posts. I know she is my mom so I am biased, but she is truly amazing! If you have read my blog for awhile you know that she owns a small business that teaches sewing lessons. Check out her facebook page here! Her blog is full of great recipes, crafty things she has done around the house, and cool hand-stitched creations!



The next blog you have to go check out is my friend Samantha from She & Him. She has read several blogs for awhile now, but now has been inspired to begin her own. I have the privilege of working with Samantha! She is a fabulous first grade teacher! She is one that actually does what she pins. So many of her cute lessons are pins that she has made her own. Now, she and her hubby have placed a house under contract and they are ready to make it their own. Please go leave her some love and follow their journey as they make their house their home!


I hope you all have a fantastic Friday!

Money! Want some?

Money. Not the most glorious topic of conversations to have with ANYONE, but a necessary one. Instead of small group on Monday, we all made it out to church to hear Joe Sangl give his two cents (aren't I a comedian) about green! He was humourous, knowledgeable, and with-it! He even gave us free...yes FREE...documents to balance our money. 

I will say that my handsome hubby was really in his element. When I walked out of church I asked him if he learned anything new. He responded with a simple no, but said he really enjoyed it! At one time Joe asked if anyone was driving an older car and asked what it was. People were saying 2003 Grand Caravans (not too old to me), and I decided Ryan needed to share. I flailed my pointer finger up in the air and aimed at Ryno's head. Joe asked what he drove and he proudly shared about his dependable 97 Toyota 4Runner with over 200,000 miles on it. I am so proud of my hubby for standing by his statement, "drive it to the wheels fall off". Cars are ridiculous, although we love taking Pearl for a ride! Joe spoke about how the Bible teaches us so very much about managing money. After all, God owns it all . . . are we managing it correctly?

My sis and her friend, Abby, came along with us, and we all had a great conversation from the presentation to home. It was so nice to see them, and I am proud of them going to a financial class at such a young age! We all learned that in order for us to have money, we can't spend money. I also found out how much longer I have until I am completely debt free with the house and all! :)

I wanted to share these great tools with you all! Mr. Sangl has a free app: I Was Broke. Now I'm Not. LOOK IT UP! I absolutely love it. You can find a ton of tools on his website, Facebook, or Twitter page as well! Please, do me a favor and check it out!
Let me know what you think!

Up All Night


Have you seen it? It is one of our favorite shows. We used to love Wednesdays even more because we would get Up All Night added on to another favorite show, Revenge. NBC moved Up All Night to Thursdays, so now we have to wait! It's worth it!

It's about a quirky couple (Christina Applegate and Will Arnett) who are making it through their married life with a new baby! Ryan and I relate to so much of the show, so it's hilarious to us!

Let us know if you enjoy this dose of weekly humor!!







 

Announcing our new addition!

 Announcing our new addition...the bathroom!  We have an awesome bathroom...if I do say so myself! So, to make it even more awesome, we are adding some beadboard. Our inspiration is from the cabin we went to a couple of falls ago.  It was 100% perfect, so we are having my baby brother recreate it! 

Here's the inspiration! 

Here's what my bro is creating! Looks good, right?! :)

Right now, it looks like a construction zone, but it's well worth it. 

 Lyla is amazed!
My favorite part is this gorgeous mirror. It's a Martha Stewart special and Greg has made it look like part of the wall. How awesome is that? 
 I can't wait to show you all the finished product! Come back soon!
Thanks Greg!
