::just six weeks away::

Just in time for Christmas!

These are my favorites but there are bunches more in the shop!

I'm telling you...this is the perfect small gift for a "secret sister" at church, stocking stuffer, cousin gift, grandma gift....you name it.

Ten bucks only for pretty Scripture cards to sit on a ledge or dresser or nightstand or desk and be a blessing to someone you love. 

I must say, I think these cards do best on a cute 'lil easel rather than hole punched with a ring.  But whatever suits you best is fine.

Here's the deal:

Buy 4 or more>>>get an one additional free [let me know in "notes to seller" what your choice is]
Buy 3>>>get $5 back [refunded to your paypal account]

::another fun Friday::

On Friday, the kids I nanny had the day off school.  We had a great time visiting a Museum in Chicago.  When we did this trip in the summer, we took the train.  This time, I drove in to the city giving us at least 2 extra hours.  What fun!

Other than a few school groups, there weren't many people there so the kids were able to spend lots of time playing + learning at the exhibits.


We had to get a picture by the cows.  :)

Also, I learned something very interesting.

If you were to drink either a can of pop a day OR eat a candy bar a day for a year, which product would cause you to gain the most weight?

My first reaction: the soda pop [duh!]
Really >>> it's the candy bar.

I don't know why this was a shocker but it's something I learned on Friday.  :)

Happy new week!

Wednesday night, a group of friends got together for a little campfire.

It was perfect....apples with all the fixings, s'mores, and warm apple cider [didn't bring enough of that!].

So many laughs! We played a game called LCR. <<weird name, I know! But super fun and fast-moving with a fun-loving group. 

The absolute best thing [in my humble, unnecessary opinion] about our church is the large group of young people, particularly young marrieds.  Though I'm not a part of the "young couples class" ['cause I'm not married yet], I've made some great memories over the past few years strengthening friendships with other "kids" I grew up with.  

::getting close::

Just a few more weeks 'til I leave.
