Busy Highlights

I've been a busy lady.  Highlights include...

  • Mustering up the courage to order geeky classes online.  Hopefully it will be the most fun $10 I've spent in a while.
  • Running a mile without stopping even once.  That is a big deal for me, folks.  It's taken a while to get to this point.  Praise the Lord for His faithfulness.  I still hate running with a passion, though.
  • Reading a great book called Desperate for His Presence by Rhonda Hughey.
  • Cheering on the Roosevelt Rough Riders at state in Rapid City and watching my crazy talented husband coach the guys.
    • Dear Lord - You are so hilarious to make me a coach's wife.
  • Experimenting with my potentially green thumb with some more cuter-than-all-get-out succulents.
  • Spray painting 7 frames, 4 candlesticks, and 1 miscellaneous treasure from Goodwill in my basement garage.  I may or may not be responsible for most of my apartment neighbors getting mildly high as they park their cars.  It was worth it.
  • Accidentally starting to like the show Friday Night Lights.  I promise that my enjoyment is for semi-deep reasons besides the ridiculous drama.  I have actually had a few profound ah-ha moments.
  • Fighting off a couple of colds.
  • Watching the news, listening to NPR and reading Joel Rosenberg's blog and asking the Lord about this next season in history.  Things might get crazy, folks.  Oh, how we need Him in this hour.
  • Traveling to Castaway Camp for a weekend with our Young Life Committee
  • Designing some more stuff for Young Life and looking forward to Adobe software soon!!
  • Discovering my new favorite (natural!) skin care product.  You'll never guess...
  • Rejoicing as a couple of dear friends from Sioux Center recently moved to Sioux Falls.
  • Loving Matt Redman and my gal pal Christy Nockels's tunes on the Passion album.  
    • Dear Chris Tomlin - We're so over.
  • Deciding that my spring and summer will be filled with skirts, dresses and leggings.  NO. SHORTS.
  • Falling in love with Paper Source.  If I had a million dollars to spend frivolously...  
  • Having a large amount of fun packing a big ole care package for my delightful new friend Sara who just went on a mission trip.  
    • Dear Five Love Languages Book - I have finally come to grips with the fact that I am a gift giver.
  • Singing Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and the Beatles covers at Young Life Club.  Did you know that Hot and Cold is actually a really fun song to sing?  Who knew.  
    • Dear Dad - You would be proud of me for our rendition of I Wanna Hold Your Hand.
  • Rediscovering my love for rubber stamps.
Phew.  I'm not sure if that's it or not, but that's all I can think of for now...  

Hope your week's off to a great start, friends!


  1. You are so funny! Love your post! I have a whole load of rubber stamps if you ever want to borrow any ... they are safely gathering cob webs as I type.

  2. Last summer I fell in love with these: http://athleta.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=50008&vid=1&pid=683764

    I like skirts, but gusts of wind frighten me (and, ahem, those around me). Hidden shorts as "insurance"? Yes, please.

    They are very lightweight and cool and therefore comfortable. So that even if people are pointing at you and whispering for wearing a skirt to the Iowa State Fair, you laugh inwardly at their smoking hot, thickly awkward khaki shorts.

    Also, if there is an item of clothing named "whatever", surely it was made for me. I use that word 17 times a day.

    I can't believe I wrote a whole comment about a skort. Oh, well. Whatever.

  3. Stumbled on your blog, Liza. Love it!

  4. good job on liking friday night lights. and did you know that i do katy perry's 'hot and cold' song when people ask me to sing places? (which has happened like twice in my life) but STILL. it was a hit. today i sent my shelter kids on a scavenger hunt and instead of saying "warmer warmer, cold!" i sang the hot and cold song. they thought i was crazy. :)

  5. Heather - CUTE skirts! I'm going to keep these in mind!!

    Micah - good job.

    Laura - Fun to hear from you! Hope you're well.

    Julie - I might hit you up on those sometime!! Thanks!!
