The Big Three-Oh

Nathan turned 30 last week. He didn't want me to throw him a party, so I didn't. We did have some nice dinners though and he got gifts of course. It was funny but he was kind of depressed about getting older. Poor guy :)
Jaidyn made him this really cute card too that I just had to share. Isn't it sweet?
I'm so thankful for him and everything he does for our family. Love you hubby!

Addison Road

This is one of those songs that will never get old to me, its kind of out of control really, that's how good it is. Wow, have I built it up too much yet? Anyway, its called "What do I know of holy" by Addison Road. I just love this girl's voice. But the lyrics really get me. They put things in perspective about how big and amazing our God really is. Like who are we in comparison with Him? Yet He still loves us, He still allows us to have a relationship with Him. He owes us nothing, yet He gives us everything. Oh its good stuff.
Romans 11:33 says "Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgements and His ways past finding out!"
And verse 36, "For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen."

Home Away from Home

We just got back from a week at "grandma's house" as my daughter now calls it. Basically our time was spent running around outside, enjoying the perfect weather and scenery, playing with the dogs, checking out the pony, swimming at the lake, and eating lots of food of course. And Nathan was also in his friend Eric's wedding. My in-laws are awesome and we have a handful of wonderful friends to see.
Every time I go to visit, I really do feel more at home there, it's so refreshing, and Nathan and I wonder why we are still living in California? Of course there are just a few reasons we are still here, like family, friends, our church family and Nathan's work to sum it up. SoCal will always be home to me, but I often think with how short life is, why just live in the same place the whole time? Lots to think and pray about for sure... but you never know, anything can happen!

It's so hard to get a good family pic of us these days, this is as close as we came. This was at Lake Pend O'reille...the picture doesn't do it justice, its so beautiful...bluest blue sky, bright green trees and really cold water!

here was the scene at the wedding, not too shabby right?

here is Carys with Grandpa and Grandma Barbie

Riding Lily the pony, is she huge or what? (the girl, not the pony) Actually the pony was a midget.

this is what happens when I'm not looking apparently

contemplating life.... this is what I call a vacation!

Tee Time

I am feeling like I hit the jackpot with these new tees.

This slouchy one is from the Gap, it has cuffed sleeves with button tabs, plus this cool exposed zipper on the back. I think it's pretty much the perfect "I'm a stay at home mom, so I have no time, but I'm still putting in effort and not wearing sweats"effortlessly cool look. Plus Gap is having a sale right now, 2 for 1. I got a black and a tan. Sweeeet!

I love you J Crew, I really do. Let's be friends forever. This one looks so comfy but its got some sass.
