miscellany monday

write random and join in below.




Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters




1. if you're out in the country with your kid-uncle, andrew, on a hunt for wild animals, the only hats to wear are the camo kind.

2. my girl got the camo hat memo a day late.

because one camo hat, pink frilly tunic wearing picture isn't enough.



3.  a favorite snack that could also slightly qualify as a dessert.  bananas + peanut butter + chocolate chips.

4.  if you're in a pinch, down on your granola making skills, or just plain lazy, this is a good substitute.

5. i went to an island wide bi-annual yard sale on saturday.  the good and bad news is that i only spent $4. which means i didn't find much of anything.  there's some redemption, though... i got this jacket type piece for $2.  the original target tags were still attached, marked $24.99.  the best part is that i bought this a few years ago when it was at target, paid full retail, felt guilty and returned it.  and now we're reunited for $22.99 less.


6.  my honey recorded a cd in a studio this weekend with his worship band.  i've heard a snippet and it makes me proud.  can't wait for it to be mixed and mastered so i can tell you how to get it on itunes.  you will have happy ears.  : )

  2. I will be getting that worship music via itunes. totally. I am so excited for you and proud of him!!

    Love the garage sale find. That is a cool story -- really. It's one of those great faithful stories. When Samuel was still in his super sick days I had gone grocery shopping at Trader Joes. Our budget was tight, and I was keeping a mental tally in my head. Well, then I realized I was over and put back some things that I really loved -- extras. Anyways, I stayed right within budget, and came home. Within about 10 minutes of getting home we hear a knock on our door and it's a lifegroup from church. They wanted to bless us with food -- since Samuel was so sick. They brought in boxes and boxes and bags and bags of food. And in one Trader Joe's bag was -- not kidding -- every single item that I had put back.

    Talk about a God moment. Humbling. And such joy. Your shirt story reminded me of that night of mine.

    Love the camo pictures as well. Fabulous. And super cute.

    Have a wonderful Monday, my friend.
