Lovin’ Me Some Summer Reading!

At the end of the spring/beginning of summer my little girly went to spend some time with my parents. I was so excited because my man and I had planned to go on a MUCH NEEDED date night and he had said that he’d take care of the plans. As I arrived back into town he called me and said for me to meet him at an old theater here in town for a  newly released movie that he was SURE I would love!

BLESS HIS BABY HEART! He has been a student of his wife for 15 years (almost!) and knew that I loved period pieces like Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, etc.! I was SOO excited to drive up to the theater to see this:

The movie ad for Jane Eyre! along with a line of eager and excited WOMEN waiting in line to buy the tickets. We walked in and sure enough… there might have been 5 other men in the theater.. the rest were excited, bathroom waiting, popcorn wielding, chitter chattering women in every seat! (Well, those still waiting in line at the potty were not in their seats yet, but they were all talking about how excited they were while they were in line!)

I LOVED THE MOVIE! He scored big brownie points that night!

Well, I decided to see about reading the book and much to my surprise there is a FREE DOWNLOAD on Kindle for many classic titles! I WAS BESIDE MYSELF!

So, I am currently reading Jane Eyre and can hardly get anything done for having my Kindle plastered to my face!

Though Jane was reared without much of a family tie she became educated and independent is amazingly confident and  just a tough old girl! Perhaps I’ll  do a book review! Ha! What do I know about reviewing books?

Two Posts in ONE DAY!? Can it BE?



Well, I just finished my monthly post and started looking at other blogs when I cam across this awesome pillow…


I’m REALLY trying to adopt the motto!   Off to the gym in the morning! Again. Bleh.

Here’s A Little Of Everything!

Well, I guess I lied! In my last post I said that I was going to be better about posting and here it is, almost exactly a month later, and I am just sitting down  Honestly, I am good with it. I have been trying to keep one little girl kind of busy this summer and not in front of the T.V. so we’ve been on the go! Well, as on the go as you can be without vacation plans! It has been amazing to me how quickly the time has passed and we’ve been right here the whole time!

One thing that has kept me a little busy has been this Bible study.


It has been such a good time in God’s Word and the study really has dealt with some very real issues for women. It is very relationship oriented so there were many times that the ladies that participated would share that the Lord was really speaking to their friendships or family relationships in a wonderful way! I am very thankful for the time spent with the women and with the Lord as we studied 2Samuel.

God is really working in the lives of so many at our church and we are just sitting on the edge of our seats as we wait on the Lord to show us the next steps in some efforts to reach out to our community. I am so eager to see how God works and can’t wait to share things as they unfold. Just asking God to work and then hanging on has been the most awesome sense of excitement for us lately! 

To keep the little girly busy we’ve been doing SCHOOL! She loves to read and she found out last year that she loves science so we have been talking about the life cycle of a plant and habitats! She has loved it all!! Trying to keep her from falling too far behind in the areas of math and reading are really important because we DO NOT need to lose ground! She has enough struggles without us going backwards so we have also continued to go to speech and to do occupational therapy during the summer. If we are going to be here we might as well make the most of it!!

With the funds being a little tight we’ve tried to get creative so that our family can have a little fun, too! Last weekend our friends kept little girly so that we could go on a date. I packed a picnic basket and called my hubby. I asked him to meet me at our first date spot where we sat under an overhang in the rain (very romantic!) and had a sweet little picnic together! MAN DID WE NEED THAT!? Sometimes we just let life keep us busy and we don’t slow down to spend time together. I was so thankful that the Lord provided a sweet time for the two of us and friends to keep the kid! He is so faithful!
