Jeremy and I are oficially homeowners. I will post pictures soon...I promise! We love the house! We feel so thankful that God has made it possible! It was through a program that my work is now starting that we were able to afford the home. They helped us with the down payment. So, today the non-profit organization that partners with the employers wanted to interview me on video to use for promotional videos they will be doing since I am one of 3 test candidates for the program. They had the whole front yard filled with a camera, lights, etc. I am sure that the neighbors are wondering what was going on. It was an interesting experience and fun, though! I actually enjoyed it even though it was so hot.

We painted last Saturday/Sunday and we are moving in this coming Saturday! We are SO excited!

This is my first time, but I thought I would give this a try. You can post your weekly menus each monday and it reminds you to plan and gives you a chance to see others menus. Just go to to see lots of other menus if you want to check it out.

Well, this week there is some fasting going on in my house and we are working on moving into our new house this week/weekend. So, the menu isn't too exciting, but I wanted to start nonetheless.

Breakfasts: organic brown rice cakes w/peanut butter(they are actually good and filling), vanilla yogurt, and cinnamon tea w/Stevia

Lunches: out to eat some, tuna fish w/crackers or wheat bread, egg salad on wheat bread, string cheese, veggies

Dinners: Homemade chili, grilled chicken, mexican night at small group...need more quick ideas for this busy week.

Well, that wasn't too exciting, but I'm hoping it will motivate me to start planning more!

well, the time has come that we can try again soon to get pregnant. i am SO excited! it seems like it will be forever until we have a baby now because we were anticipating a january birth, but i know it will be in just the right timing! please pray for a healthy pregnancy when you think of us. i am preparing to trust the lord and not allow myself to worry that i will miscarry again. hopefully i can do that!

i just returned from Michigan on Sunday afternoon for Alicia's wedding! it was so wonderful because I was able to spend lots of time with her the few days before the wedding. we both couldn't believe it had been 2 years. thank goodness for seemed like not a day had passed since we had seen each other! she was a gorgeous bride and everything was perfect at the wedding! i can't imagine her wanting to change a thing! hopefully i can post pictures soon! it was fun getting to see old and new friends from teen mania too! i also loved getting to know her family so much more! it only made me feel closer to her! i love them a lot too now! i don't typically feel comfortable in new situations like that...i was staying at their house...and i often worry about imposing, but they made me feel welcome.

we are closing on a house on august 14th! so much is happening right now. we haven't even begun packing!! ahh!! we are excited! i am praying that the monthly payment turns out to be what we need it to be. please pray for favor for us as I am worried. gosh, it still feels like there is so much more i could update on, but i don't want to overload you! i'll be back soon:)
