Label Me

I don't know if anyone is as excited about this as I am, but Martha Stewart is now doing a big ol' home office line of labeling products with Avery and Staples. I know, I know, can you barely stand the excitement???
Who knew labels could be so fun....

Chalkboard Labels for the kitchen

Labels for parties...

For whatever! Oh Martha, Martha, I totally forgive you for your white collar crimes....

Touch of Gray

We painted our house a couple months ago. Unfortunately I will always associate it with our little turtle escaping and getting run over when the gate was open. He was not long for this world. He wanted to live free or die! And he almost made it across the street too.
RIP Tebow!

OK so aaanyway the house looks great, I love it. The color we picked was called Charcoal Smudge by Dunn Edwards. And we spray painted the mailbox yellow. I like to think of it as the handkerchief in the suit pocket...or something like that.

This is the before....we also tore out the bushes and plan to replace them with something else.

Here's the me it looks classier without the christmas lights

So last year...

Let's see, what did I do this year. Cooked a lot of meals, had a lot of play dates, and had another baby! I'm excited this year to get out there more and have some adventures. As I've shared before, I have so many ideas floating around in my head of things I want to do or get done, but once I am faced with free alone time, I remember....wait, I can sleep! Or one of my other faves, sitting on the couch and doing nothing. ha!
So long story short, this year I would like to be more active. More active in physical exercise and in spiritual exercise: being in the Word more and in prayer more (in touch with headquarters as they say), and basically, more active in life!

"Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning, great is Your faithfullness. "The Lord is my portion", says my soul, therefore I hope in Him!"

Lamentations 3:22-24

And here are some pics from the end of the year:

First Christmas :)

First Christmas where she was really excited about it!

Here we are Christmas Day at my mom's house

She got nail polish in her stocking, and so it begins....

Here are Nathan's parents and Grandma Charlotte with the girls

This is our serious look.
