It's that time of the week again. Insta-Friday.

I'm linking up with...
life rearranged

Wait, it is friday right?
Thses past two weeks have been a bit twisted.
My little guy was so sick last week. It took almost the entire week for him to get past it.
So the first trip out of the house in 6 days was to, where else, Target.
Not to get anything in particular, just to walk around.
We love our Target! Oh... and all the spring/summer outdoor things are out! I so need to get some furniture for our porch. We love to sit out there while our little guy plays.

My little guy also started to write his own name this week. It is a little hard to read but I can see it.  It may be that I'm the mommy and that's why I can read it. I maybe a little biased, maybe.

In our new house we have HUGE windows in our living room.
Like a wall of windows! So I have been struggling trying to find some kind of treatment for them.
I'm loving the wide horizontal stripes for drapes. However everything I found to buy for the size I needed was way out of my price range. So I made my own for $20, for both. Thats right, my husband was so happy I didn't buy the ones I wanted to $120. He loves me.

All the men in my house hate to have their nails clipped. It is a battle to clip my son's.

Sunday we hosted all our youth, volunteers, and their parents to our hosue for an easy fellowship. I wasn't ready. My hosue wasn't ready. But on thing God has taught me this week is that if I wait until I'm fully ready I'll miss out some amazing things. He uses me the best when I'm not ready.
After all was cleaned from the fellowship, my son curled on the couch with a bag as big as he is.
He really is just like his daddy. Too cute.

Mr. Coffee Love

I love coffee, everything coffee. My kitchen is even decorated with coffee things. But in this house, I'm the only coffee drinker. My husband says he likes it but really only has coffee once a week.
Sad, I know.
As much as I love coffee, I have to admit, I only drink one cup a day. However I make it an experience. I put it in one of my favorite cups, use my best coffee, and the best creamer.
When I got married almost 8 years ago I was gifted my first Me. Coffee pot. I loved that thing. It was the kind with the insulated carafe. I loved it and used it until this past Christmas. It still works after 8 years and we will continue to use it when, we have guests, for years to come.

So all of this to say, my hubby knew exactly what to get me for Christmas. Can u guess...not that... no not that either. Ok, I'll tell you. A Mr. Coffee Single Serve Brewer! Oh look how cute it is!

I'm in love! Sorry honey.
It fits perfectly on my counter.

I don't like a lot of clutter on my counter, mostly because I don't have that much space to begin with. This Mr. Coffee even fits the larger cups, which is wonderful.
Now I can use any of my favorite coffee brands, hot chocolate, and teas. Heaven!!

I even found the insert, from another brand, where I can put in my own grounds. Like this coffee, mmmmm....

So what are your favorite coffee products? I would love to know.

I wrote this post to thank you to my wonderful hubby who gave me this brewer for Christmas. I have not received anything from Mr. Coffee and they have no idea who I am.

Adjustment Time

We have moved! My husband is now the new Youth Minister at a church near Houston. So we moved clear across the state of TX. Are we crazy? Possibly, but not for making this move. We followed God, period.

life rearranged
So I decided to join insta-Friday and show some pics of how my son is adjusting. (he loves it here).

Poor baby only wants to take naps on Mommy and Daddy's bed. I give in so easily.


First trip to Burger King!

More naps on Mommy's bed.

Our morning alarm, every morning! I don't mind too much. It's an awfully cute alarm.
This is how mommy was adjusting! Yummy....  We were doing really well until this happened...
Ugh... now we are cleaning up.
