Here goes another list before the weekend! We are headed to my in-laws tonight for our annual pumpkin picking party. My father-in-law has the best garden. You wouldn’t believe how many pumpkins he grows! I always try to grow a few pumpkins myself but it just never compares. Maybe it is my lack of attention to the garden…the abundance of weeds tend to give me away. Anyway, here are a few of my random thoughts and links for the weekend…
Revive ’15 | Are you listening? I just finished listening to Jen Wilkin and oh my goodness…so challenging. Her love for the Lord and desire to point women to Truth shines so brightly. I wrote down that she said, “A vision of God high and lifted up is what drives the teacher to teach.” That is what I see in Jen as I have listened to her teach. And that is what I am praying for myself even as I teach my boys everyday in our home. That they would get a vision of God high and lifted up. You can still sign up for the Revive ’15 LIVE stream and listen in tonight and tomorrow. I wish so much I could be at this event in person but how awesome that we can listen in at home for free?!
Shark Party | Griffin’s shark party was last weekend. It had been horribly windy all week and then on Saturday the weather was perfect. We were so thankful because the party was outside. Outside parties are my favorite. Thank you, Jesus, for the gift of good weather. That can be hard to come by in Kansas. We had so much fun celebrating Griff with his little shark cousins running all around our yard. Lots of sugar was consumed…of course. Kerri of Big K little k designs designed the most adorable shark invitation and favor tags. They turned out so cute! Her shop is taking a short break as she gets ready to have a new baby (yay!), but bookmark her shop because I am sure you will want to check out all her adorable invitations. You can look through her past sales to get an idea of her style. Here is a little peek at our party. I can’t wait to show you more!
Fall Outfits | I do not consider myself someone who stays on top of fashion but I like a cute outfit just as much as any other girl. Emily’s blog, Jones Design Company, is one of my favorites. She writes about so much more than fashion, but did you see her “Seven Favorite Wearable Outfits for Fall” post? I love her style so much…I wish she could pick out my outfits everyday. That is probably not realistic, but I did get some great ideas for how to mix and match my current wardrobe. Our family pics are coming up and I was definitely needing some outfit ideas. I also found a good use for my birthday money and bought this stripe sweatshirt. Cute, comfortable and stripes…I couldn’t think of anything more perfect to wear. I probably won’t be wearing it for family pictures but maybe every other day this fall.Where is your favorite place to go for outfit ideas? Not that cute outfits are the most important thing in life, but it sure is nice to know a few fashionable people to help the rest of us out!
