Before I write anything else - I want to share with you that my dad (he's a pastor) is writing a series of blogs about why bad things happen to good people. I know as we constantly see such sad things on blogs or hear of people losing children or having cancer - it's hard to understand. I hope that you will hop over and read what my dad writes - hopefully through the Bible - we can better understand. I also recently saw this video which I thought was great as well on the same subject.
So I've been on a quest to spruce up our bedroom. It's been the same for many years and I've never really liked it too much. Lately it was covered in baby things but sadly - Harper has outgrown most of it (bouncy seat, activity mat, etc) so I have begun packing them up and putting them away.
The next thing I want to do is get several gallery frames - big white mats and frames like the ones from Pottery Barn below (only I'm going to search for a budget option) and frame family pictures for the 2 walls on either side of our bed.
I am so lucky to have a big group of friends from church/Sunday School who are all stay at home moms and we get together every other week at a different house for lunch and for the kids to play and for us to visit. I've been working hard all week to get my house ready (as clean as I can with a baby and limited time) and I just realized that we are having "Martin" day at play group tomorrow - because I'm making my Dad's enchiladas, my mom's salsa (recipe below) and my brother's guacamole. And a strawberry dessert!
My mom found this recipe for Chili's salsa (which we love) and she makes it like every week now:
(We'll work on eating a little neater later)
P.S. Harper HAS been in her own room for about a month now and is doing great!!!
