Advent Christmas Decor

Christmas Tree

Back in November one of the Pastor’s at my church (Mars Hill Church in Albuquerque) approached me about heading up the Advent decor.  I was honored, and humbled, and a little nervous too.  I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do it because I was having surgery and didn’t know how it would go.  Greg and I prayed, and we felt like God said WE should do it.  So we said yes, with the understanding that I might be limited in what I could do.  God graciously provided help in the form of interns (you guys are bomb!)

Baby on Board Baby Shower (Nautical Theme)

DSC_7013

This is a shower I did in October for a friend who had a beautiful baby boy named Jude.  She mentioned wanting to do a nautical theme in his room so I figured if we made that the theme, she could use some of the props for his room afterward! I thought it would be really fun to have a yarn wreath with a twist- wrapped to look like a life preserver.  This is what came out of it. It was super easy to make.  Just get a foam wreath from Hobby Lobby or Michaels, and wrap yarn around it. […]

Wicked Update

Friday night Greg and I went to see Wicked.  As I mentioned in my last post, I have been waiting 6 years to see it.  The night started out great.  My mom came to watch Asa, Greg whisked me off to Zinc and we had a nice dinner (review coming soon).  We then went to Popejoy and had to fight the crazy parking garage and the people in it (actually, getting there wasn’t too bad, it was getting out that was a nightmare).  After parking ($7! Whaa!) we went into the theatre and got the headsets for the show. Now, […]

Do you Use Craigslist?

I love Craigslist.  I have been using it *almost* since being back in Albuquerque.  I think it really started (kicked into high gear anyway) for me when we moved into our first rental house and continued after we moved into our own. We have had so much success on Craigslist it has been just great.  While I have some complaints (people spamming the site, etc.), the only MAJOR drawback was having to click on EVERY SINGLE LISTING I wanted to look at and then go back and find a new one to look at.  A long time ago I made […]

I’m a wanna be foodie- Wednesday Review

So a week or so ago I read a statistic that most New Year’s Resolutions don’t last longer then two weeks.  Seeing as how mine didn’t last longer then two days, I can see how that statistic would be fairly accurate.  This year, my resolution was to eat at only locally owed restaurants when we went out to eat (or at least owned by New Mexicans).  The problem is, it’s not really easy to distinguish if they are local or not.  There are some that are no brainers, and others that are a little harder.  So, I busted my resolution, […]
