I recently heard that Bath and Body Works was having a really awesome sale, but I didn't really need anything, so I decided not to go. But the thought of a good sale got the best of me, and I ended up going last night. And it was an AWESOME sale!

I ended up getting all of this stuff for $13!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Much of it I can't use until the fall, but that's okay. I have a pumpkin candle from several years ago, and it is the best candle I have ever had (even better than Yankee candles). So go to Bath and Body Works to find some AMAZING deals! The sale ends tomorrow!

Still here!

We are still here, we just haven't been doing anything exciting. We did go shopping this weekend and found some AWESOME deals on clothes and shoes. I love bargains!
Daisy and Oscar had a good night tonight. Jason got home before I did and then left again, but I did not realize that he fed them, so I fed them when I got home. They had two dinners! Of course, they didn't tell me they had already eaten--they just ate it right up!

Suggestions, please!

Okay, I need some help. We are going on a Disney cruise in a few months with Jason's family. We have been instructed to pick Disney characters to represent ourselves. Any ideas on which ones we should pick? I am not good with decisions, and there are so many to choose from! Jason told his sisters I could be Grumpy, so don't pick anything nice for him. Thanks for your help!


This morning I was doing a quick blog check and read Punchy's blog about Tricia, Nathan and Gwyneth Rose. I have found links to their blog on several blogs that I read, and their story is so touching and their faith so amazing.

Their story, and several others from blogland, were heavy on my heart this morning. Shortly after reading Punchy's blog, I came across this verse, which held special meaning to me today:
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul."

May you all be blessed with rest for your soul today and always.

Our Weekend Fun!

We spent the weekend skiing! This past weekend was one of the few weekends we didn't have anything going on, so we decided to take advantage of that and go ski! We headed up Saturday morning.

Some of the scenery on the way up

We have to go through this tunnel on the way to the ski resorts

In the tunnel

More roadside scenery

Saturday we skied at Beaver Creek--they have escalators that take you up to the lifts!

Saturday night we ate dinner at the Blue Spruce Inn, and it was delicious! I had Steak Diane, and Jason has Texas Venison medallions. It was YUMMY! And we had a bottle of Malbec, my new favorite wine. Mmmmmmm!

Sunday we skied at Breckenridge, and we had a great time! The sun was out, the slopes were nicely groomed and it wasn't terribly crowded. It was great!

This week, we are planning to go to Vail and ski on Thursday. Fun times!

Girls' Night!

Tonight I met up with some girlfriends for a girls' night! We had dinner together and sat around and just talked and laughed and drank milkshakes! It is such a blessing to have such wonderful Christian girlfriends.
Say cheese, Andrea

That milkshake was REALLY good!

Susan, our wonderful host and milkshake maker

Sweet Andrew entertained us with his dancing skills

Nothing exciting.....

My mom was worried about us since I haven't updated in the last few days, but we are okay! We have just been taking it easy so there hasn't really been anything exciting to write. We also have been working out harder and eating healthier to get ready for our cruise that is coming up in March, so that has been tiring! But we are still here!

Last weekend I did quite a bit of scrapbooking--I worked on our Thanksgiving pages and also my trip to Texas from this summer. I am struggling a bit with page ideas and inspiration, but I am hoping that, once I get back into the swing of things, ideas will come easily.

Hope everyone is having a good January!

Happy Birthday!

Today is my mom's birthday!

I know I have said this before, but I am so very blessed with such a wonderful mother. She is a living example of Christ's love and faithfulness. I love you, Mom, and I am so thankful for you. Happy Birthday!

And yesterday was Jason's mom's birthday! I am also very blessed with a wonderful mother-in-law. Happy Birthday, Linda!

Happy New Year!

Can you believe it is 2008? I say this every new year, but the last year just seemed to go so fast!

We stayed home last night and just watched TV and had some champagne. But we did stay awake until midnight!

I looked back at my post from last year on New Year's Day, and many of my goals for this year are similar to the ones I had last year.

1. Eat 5 servings of fruits/vegetables and 3 servings of calcium per day
2. Work out regularly
3. Finish painting the inside of our house
4. Plant a small garden in our side yard
5. Read through the NT
6. Do more traveling

Again, Daisy's goal this year is stop eating poop, and Oscar wants to lose some weight and take more walks.

Hope you all have a wonderful and blessed 2008!
