Date Night | Pastors & Wives


Just got home from an amazing night hanging out with amazing couples.  All the pastors' wives drove up to Brea, where we met out husbands for dinner at Cheesecake Factory.  Our husbands are currently away enjoying a retreat together where they are working hard for our church, Compass Bible Church.  It was so nice to be able to share this sweet time with the other wives in fellowship and praying together.  Lots of laughs and of course delicious cheesecake.  Mike and I shared the Snickers cheesecake--yum!  I'm so glad our men get this opportunity to be together and work hard and enjoy this time...but I miss Mike when he's away.  He will be back tomorrow though, and hopefully I'll be able to resume my normal sleeping habits when he's home.

Dumpster Diving



While I was taking a stroll with Miles around our complex I spotted a cheap desk by the dumpster that someone thew out, and I thought, "Hey I could do something with that!"  Yes, I really do think these things when I walk by the dumpster and see things setting outside of it.  (Ok, I admit.  I don't "dive" into the dumpster. I only check out the things sitting out beside the dumpster.)  So, after we finished our walk, I grabbed my screwdriver and headed out to disassemble this thing.  These are the pieces I salvaged from the desk, and honestly, I have high hopes for them!  I'll show you what I have in store for them (Spoiler alert: they are all Pinterest ideas!).

For the 3 panels (Mike and I for the longer one & Miles and Trenton for the other two):


And for the largest piece of wood:


I'm always on the search for free projects! I'll post a followup once I actually get around to doing these projects.

Los Angeles Overreacts to Cold Temperatures



This is actually pretty funny and true.  Being from Toledo, Ohio I've experienced blizzards (I'm talking about storms, not Dairy Queen). I have adjusted to California weather since moving here in 2004.  That being said, I've been "freezing" the past couple weeks.  This baby isn't doing much for my body temperature.

4 Years


I am beyond blessed to be married to this man.  We went to Roy's in Newport Beach tonight, and it was absolutely romantic night.  Also, Mike bought us tickets for Circ De Soleil - Iris for Jan. 11 and I'm so excited!  We've seen the Kooza show on the Santa Monica Pier a few years ago.  I'm pretty sure if I knew about Circ De Soleil when I was a child, it would have been my dream job.  This year is going to be great and I'm so glad I get to serve this man and be lead by him.  He is truly a godly man and God was so gracious to give him to me. I love you babe! xoxo
