Friday Coffee Date…

Hello there.
I hope you had a great week.
Mine has been been busy but good.

Go ahead and grab yourself something to drink.
I have coffee, tea, water, juice, and fruit smoothies.

Lets pray.
Dear heavenly Father, thank you that my friend was able to join me here today. I am so thankful that although we are not physically together right now you have allowed us to bond. I am thankful that we have this time together. Father God please continue to be with my friend today. Protect my friend from the evil plans of Satan. Lord, please continue to help us each grow closer to you, seeking your guidance in all things big or small. Help us to remember that no matter how tragic the circumstances that you are in all things. That you have our best interest in mind. Help to trust in your plans. Thank you Lord for being so loving, just, and gracious. Please have our conversation today be pleasing to you. In Jesus name, Amen.

Before we begin sharing about our week, I would like to ask that you help me help my friend Heidi of Honeybearlane raise money to help her brother raise his 3 kids after the sudden loss of his wife.

from Heidi’s blog:

The loss of a loved one is a strange surreal reality.  Life is completely normal except for one large, gaping hole.  Each day the pain seems to become more real and defined as the actuality of what has happened sinks in.
My dear sister-in-law Alice gave birth last Wednesday to a beautiful baby girl.  Unfortunately she contracted a horrible infection, strep A toxic shock.  It hit her like a tidal wave and after a hard fight, she succumbed to the illness.
Alice was released from this world on Wednesday night, although she may have left her body before then.  Her husband, my sweet brother, was left behind to take care of their two little boys and newborn daughter.  He is not alone, of course.  All of his family will be there to help him raise these precious little kids.

So will you help? You can head over to Heidi’s blog and in the right column there is a place for you to donate.

Please also take time as you feel led to pray for their family. I know they will greatly covet all prayers sent their way.

On a lighter note. did you know it’s teacher appreciation week?
I shared with you on Wednesday some of the gifts I made for my sons teacher.

Today’s gift is by far my favorite that we made.

Thanks to the fab girls of eighteen25 this gift was possible.
they have an amazing tutorial :here:

I am enjoying this months photo a day challenge a ton.

Hubby and I celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary last Saturday.

(our actual anniversary was this Monday the 7th)

We went to our friends wedding , it was a perfect date night because we got to get dressed up.

I attempted and succeeded in curing my own hair…

Hubby and I dressed up all snazzy..

The wedding was a blast..
the Bride was breath taking…
The groom looked great too..
We acted a little crazy…
and for sure got our dance on..

What about you? what did you do this week? Anything fun?
Okay the kids are about to hurt each other. All I hear is screaming and crying as i type. Guess that’s my cue to get off the computer…
