So how was your weekend??? I hope you had a good one. We are experiencing a cool front in July here in Arkansas and it felt like fall to me all weekend. It was in the high 70's with no humidity - I kept thinking I should put the car flags on our car and head to a football game.
The highlight of our Saturday was picking up our barstools. I LOVE them. I'll post more pictures of our made over room soon. I'm waiting on a new rug I ordered and a few other details but I am super happy with the bar stools - and they are VERY comfy! Yeay! (and for all of you who asked - I got them at I O Metro).
Today was kind of hectic. We went to church and the worship service today was SO great! I just really felt the presence of God this morning. And then it happened. Our church (like many others) has these electronic things on the wall and if your child is screaming in the nursery - they will flash up your number as a sign that you need to come check on your baby. Well - right in the middle of the sermon - my 4 numbers popped up. ha! Harper was just hungry and gassy. Her tummy has been out of sorts for about a week - but I think she finally got some relief this afternoon! yeay! And then right after church - Scott and I filmed a video to show during August for Sunday School Emphasis Month. We shared about how much our Sunday School Class meant to us while we were in the hospital with Harper.
I have to encourage you - if you go to church (or if you don't) and you feel sometimes like you just go in and leave each Sunday and don't really feel apart of a "church family" - PLEASE find a Sunday School Class (or life group or whatever your church calls it) and join. I promise you will not be sorry. We have made the best friends in our class and have grown so much in our faith because of the last 5 years we have spent in our couple's class.
So after church - we met up with Laurie and Steve at a local restaurant for the Sunday Lunch buffet. (Do you notice that Scott gave himself a summer "do" while I was in Texas?)
I've been getting a lot of e-mails with similar questions so I thought ON MONDAY I would address several of these and if you have any other questions - leave them in the comments and if I get many of the same - I'll answer those too. The 3 questions I've gotten a lot lately are:
1. The home tours - "I can't see the links or can you post a list of each Friday's links so we can quickly access them."
2. What kind of camera do you use and did you take photography lessons?
3. How do you get so many blog followers/a successful blog/anyone to read your blog?
Also - between my email (I have 2 addresses) and the comments on this blog and the prayer blog - I've been left a ton of prayer requests and I have to be honest - I can miss a few. So if you have left me one and you don't see it posted (I'm still working through a lot of them) - please send again to firstname.lastname@example.org. I definetely don't mean to miss any - but it can happen with as many as I get. They are all important!!!
