The Minus 1 Project

Sorry I have been terrible at keeping up my blog lately-honestly, it has been b/c I have been BUSY with ORDERS from my shop-YAHOO!!!!!! God has been AWESOME and right on time as usual. I have my first $ turn-in deadline this weekend for my trip to Ethiopia this summer and so far I have raised exactly what I need for that turn-in. Surprised? I am not-I know how God rolls ;)

So, while I am posting spottily at best, PLEASE go check out my very good friend Kelly's blog, The Minus 1 Project. They are beginning their second adoption, their 1st blog, and will be having some AWESOME stuff for sale soon to raise funds-stuff that is not out there already and I am EXCITED to get my hands on!! I will show myself holding it and laughing with glee as soon as I get it (that's a hint as to what it is.....any guesses??) and give y'all a link to the goods. :) She had been my good friend for years, was instrumental in opening our eyes to adoption, and just all around awesome. GO. Read her blog-be a follower. Go NOW.

Bring Out Yer Dead!

I AM alive!! However, we had 2 weeks of being sick, and last week was HORRIBLE with 5 of 6 of us with the barfy flu (including mommy!!) so needless to say, blogging did not happen. Nor did much of anything else. I'm still trying to catch up on laundry (hahahahahaha, not even a possibility) and just stopped in to say hi so...HI!!! I just have a minute before I fall right over asleep but wanted to tell you if you have not checked out my Etsy shop, I listed a bunch of new stuff so go see it-and BUY some stuff, too :)!! (you know, if you want, please?) I also wanted to give you the amazing news that I am OVER HALFWAY to my fundraising amount for my trip to Ethiopia, all while I have been playing with jewelry!! Is God awesome or what?! Also, and totally unrelated to fundraising or my trip but very related to God being awesome (as really all things are, you know)-THE COUNTER TOPS ARE COMING TODAY, THE COUNTER TOPS ARE COMING TODAY!!!!!!!! YAY!! There is a light at the end of this winterstorm-damaged tunnel!! (there is also STILL a homeless potty next to my bed-we must not speak of it while I am giddy about my counter tops, 'mkay?) I will post pictures asap-poor counter top guys, bet they don't know they are going to be featured on the innerwebs makin' my house all purty.....

Oh! and guess what? For Mother's Day, my AWESOME family gave me the teensy tiniest little cutie netbook computer so that I can take it to Ethiopia when I go and be able to email them and journal my trip while I am there!!! I am typing on it right now-IT IS SO CUTE!!! You can just about fit it in your little pocket...and it's name is Sylvester.

(What? You do not name your computers? Well, you should. Sylvester would have friends then...)
