I’m actually participating in Works for me Wednesday this week!

In my craft room, I use a shoe organizer just like this one on the outside of the closet door. I use it to organize everything from paint brushes to ribbon to tape to feather boas. With clear pockets, it is easy to see where everything is and keep your supplies separated.

Have a tip to share? Join in at We are THAT family.

Ten Things Tuesday

XBOX Wife Ten Things Tuesday

Bet ya thought I had forgotten about these, huh? Well, I haven’t. I have no excuse though. Just laziness. Here are a few things I have been thankful for lately.

1. The weather! Woohoo for warm days!
2. I have only 2 months until graduation. I think I can survive it.
3. I am thankful for my new furniture that should be arriving this week. Trust me, if you saw my pitiful, chewed on, stuffing deprived, down to one last throw pillow, old-lady print living room set, you’d be glad we’re getting new furniture too.
4. I am thankful for my hard-working husband who made that new furniture possible!
5. I am thankful that my hard-working husband is (supposedly) getting time off after tomorrow! He has had only about 6 days off since January 25th, so he is in need of a break.
6. I am VERY thankful that my husband was not hurt in his accident last week. God was definitely protecting him.
7. I’m thankful I only have one more class today. I’m tired.
8. I am thankful that I have been able to attend the Monday morning Bible Study at my church! If you haven’t done Beth Moore’s Esther study, go check it out. I’m loving it! I’m also pretty fond of all the girls doing the study with me. πŸ™‚
9. I’m thankful for bananas. Random, I know. I really like them though. Bananas are my favorite fruit. Lately, I’ve been starting my day with a banana or a banana smoothie – except Mondays. Those are coffee days.
10. I’m thankful for spell check on Blogger. I type too fast. If it weren’t for those little red dotted lines, I’m pretty sure people would think I was illiterate and just hitting buttons on the keyboard. My dad would certainly be embarrassed.

Not Me Monday

Click the banner to join in!

I did not go to FedEx today and mail a package containing a Christmas gift that got left behind when we traveled to Missouri in January and a few of my mother-in-laws belongings that got left at our house at Thanksgiving. Not me!

I did not breath a little sign of relief on the way home tonight because I remembered my sweet husband would not be here, therefore allowing me to watch Dancing with the Stars and hang out on the couch undisturbed. Promise. That wouldn’t be nice.

I was not late for Bible Study today because I was not sitting in a drive thru line at a coffee shop down the street.

I did not go in the dollar store tonight looking down right scary after going to the walking class and running class.

And since I didn’t go in the dollar store, I didn’t purchase a half-size bag of Funyuns to consume while watching Dancing with the Stars.

Since I didn’t buy those Funyuns, nor did I look at the nutritional value (or lack thereof) and say to myself, “Oh well, they’re cholesterol free!”

Ok, I’ve posted my weekly confessions. Now you do it too! Click the banner above and join in.

Not Me Monday

It was not me that spent hours combing out my dog’s hair the night before she went to the vet to avoid him seeing her with muddy tangles.

It was not me that restocked the fridge just to eat out every night for the whole next week.

It was certainly not me that told my husband he could play Xbox360 last night so that I could watch Desperate Housewives undisturbed. However, had I done that, you would think I would have remembered that the Oscars were on, instead of subjecting myself to machine guns for no reason!

It was not me that was nearly late for bible study today because of insisting on stopping by the coffee shop, even though the car also had to be refueled to the point of the little red light being on.

I did not leave my book and bible on the coffee table this morning when I left.

I did not skip an entire week of blogging.

I’m not currently postponing studying for a mid-term in order to post this. I’m a very responsible student.

I do not have a messy, messy house right now. Not me.

I am not going to bed before 10:30 10:00 tonight.

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Thirteen Thursday is BACK!

I just realized that I have not done a 13 Thursday list since the beginning of June! Ooops. Thursdays are just usually a busy day for me. I’m always running last minute errands and doing last minute housework before Steven comes home, so we won’t have to do it on the weekend.

Because I have a few hours before he gets home, I’ll do another photo post. Here are 13 random pictures from my computer.

1. May 7, 2006 – me and Hanna

2. March 2007 – Hanna enjoying some chocolate cake for her first birthday

3. My mother on her wedding day. This is probably my favorite photo ever.

4. Laren and me- December 30, 2005 at the rehearsal dinner for Whitney and Adam’s wedding.

5. Emerald, Biscuit, and Roush were napping together. Roush woke up and was trying to snuggle with Biscuit. πŸ™‚

6. Jill looks really scary when she yawns.

7. Awww! Look at the cute little me when I was 2!

8. Roush napping with Minnie Pearl. I can’t believe how small she was then!

9. The Mr. and Mrs. on the ferris wheel at the NEA District Fair

10. One of the tractors on my grandma’s farm.

11. Steven showing off at a pool party last summer.

12. He was dressed up, so I had to take a picture.

13. November 2007 – My good friend Ashley and her dad, on her wedding day.
