My next post is #100

"Every problem has a gift for you in its hands." ~Richard Bach
The past 4 days have been extremely hard for me...but things are looking better. When things get tough one of my favorite things to remind myself is that God will not give me more than I can handle. But yesterday (while brushing my teeth - go figure!) it was like I was hit with a ton of bricks and I found major relief in the fact that the bad experiences I have had really are making me a better person. We all face our own "problems" and it is usually very difficult to look at these things at the time and be thankful for them...but today I am finally at that stage. I am thankful for my recent experience. Yes, it was an extremely tough day...and I'm sure that there will be tough (or tougher) days in my life...but next time hopefully it won't take me so long to get to the point where I am now.
That said...on to more fun things.
My birthday was this week. We celebrated early over last weekend. My sister made my birthday cake and it was de-lish!
Today is my sweet Grandpa's birthday! I can't wait to celebrate with him over this coming weekend!

DH & I finally used our fire bowl for the first time this summer! Whoo-hoo! I love that thing. Looking forward to using it again this weekend since we finally found a place where we can get firewood that is cut small enough to fit in it!

Still working on exposing myself. It seems I can't follow deadlines well but mine is to hopefully have it all exposed by the end of this weekend.

Just had to let you all know about these...

I am a BIG fan of The Black Apple blog (who isn't after her spot on Martha...she's a celebrity now!). Emily's designs are always so cute. I fell in love with this little ghost a while back but missed out on getting one of my own from her shop (things sell FAST there). So, when I found out Miss Emily had teamed up with Sublime Stitching on a pattern set and it included this little ghost I just had to have one. So while I was browsing about to purchase this:

I came across this:

I just had to have this one too!
How awesome and perfect is this for me???
I can't wait to get these.

Holiday! Celebrate!

Happy 4th of July!

DH & I are going here today...
To do a little of this...
Fishing on the 4th of July! Then we will be seeking some fireworks later tonight! Have a great 4th everyone!
(Again, sorry for the lack of blogging. I've had pneumonia! Being sick stinks but it is even worse when it happens in the summer.)
I've got some things all lined up to expose myself. I'll show more on that over the weekend. :)
