Project 366: Day 40 [March 27th]

Good morning bloggers!!

Guess what came in the mail today??


New clothes!

I forgot to post about ordering these not too long ago. I seem to like clothing online more than I do IN the store. Is that weird? I just think I like the clothes better. But Ethan sold a vehicle last week, so we agreed that I could purchase a few new summer clothes with some of it :) I was so excited! I bought some new ones last year, but I had just had Tayler so they were a bit 'larger' than what I needed this year (THANK GOD!) Yes, it took me about 9 months to shed all of that body weight, but hey-- they say you don't put it on over night, you won't get it off over night. Unless you're really lucky or good, I suppose, haha!

But anyways.

I purchased a new pink dress that I just love! I love wearing little dresses in the Summer! I also purchased 3 new pairs of shorts, 2 new tank tops, a pair of sandals (classy ones, you know? Not flip flops! I wear those too often, haha!), and a new bathing suit! HOLLA! I actually feel confident in this one! Thank the Lord. Last year, I hid under a piece because, well, as I said, I just had Tayler and I was super embarrassed. (I know now, it's beauty marks, not stretch ;)) But I feel MUCH better this year!

Now.. lets just get these warmer temperatures back and I can wear them, haha!

After that, I caught up on 'Secret Life of the American Teenager.' It premiered Monday night and of course, Ethan doesn't like it, haha, so I waited to watch it today. Did anyone else watch it? This show.. I can't stand some things about it, but it's like I still HAVE to watch it. Is that weird? haha! I think Amy is smart with not wanting to get married immediately. She is in high school still, you know? I was impressed with Adrian being honest with Dante. Grace should have been honest with Daniel. And what the heck is up with Ben? Like he thought it would be alright to smoke pot in his dad's house? Okay. Next week should be interesting to say the least..

After I caught up on that, it was reading time. I'm in the middle of reading 'The Hunger Games' and it is as addicting as everyone says it is! I honestly read 151 pages yesterday. I'm on page 251! :) It is SO good! I can't wait to finish. I'm actually thinking about it right now.. willing myself to finish this blog to read it! And yes, I had a little buddy with me while reading. She napped, I imagined Katniss and Rue in the forest. It was a good day!

Once E got home, we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant. I wasn't in the mood to cook tonight and we had both been talking about the food there for quite some time, so we went ahead and went. I got my usual-- fajita chimichanga that comes with refried beans, rice, guacamole, sour cream, pico de galla, and queso cheese. YUM! :) I even share with Tayler. She absolutely loves it!

See her little scrape under her nose? It's healing, but poor thing. It looks just miserable. I feel so bad for her! :( But on a positive note-- how cute does she look in that jacket? Her Papaw and Gigi bought it for her for her birthday! :)

When we got home, we hung out outside for a little bit. She walked around and got in to everything, hahahaha, and I sat in the porch swing watching E work on some things outdoors :) She loves being outside.. and pitches a fit coming in. It's cute ;) haha!

Once coming inside, we spent some time with some friends and we settled in to catch up on 'GCB.' It's on Sunday nights, but it's on at 10PM and honestly-- we are rarely up that late, haha! So it gets taped and watched at a later date. But we couldn't get into it at first because Tayler kept wandering out to the kitchen! So, Ethan decided to put up his own version of a 'gate' since the opening is too big for a gate!

I know she'll eventually learn how to climb over it, but it works for now, haha!

Do any of you watch 'GCB?' I just love it! 

I think Cricket and her husband have the 'weirdest' relationship, but I suppose it works for them. She does truly love him though, you can tell by her jealousy of Amanda. Carlene actually showed having a true heart when she put Amanda's laptop back! But she still manipulated information out of her, which doesn't surprise me, haha! What did y'all think of this episode?

We had such a good day today!

And now for the prayer today: (Tomorrow's the last day!)

Pray that your husband will serve God and others with pure motives. Pray that he will obey the Lord from his heart, and glorify Him in everything. (1 Cor. 10:13; John 7:17-18; Col. 3:23-24)

And the scriptures that go along with it are as follows:

1 Corinthians 10:13 (The Message) No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he'll never let you be pushed past your limit; he'll always be there to help you come through it.

John 7:16-19 (The Message) Jesus said, "I didn't make this up. What I teach comes from the One who sent me. Anyone who wants to do his will can test this teaching and know whether it's from God or whether I'm making it up. A person making things up tries to make himself look good. But someone trying to honor the one who sent him sticks to the facts and doesn't tamper with reality. It was Moses, wasn't it, who gave you God's Law? But none of you are living it. So why are you trying to kill me?"

Colossians 3:22-25 (The Message) Servants, do what you're told by your earthly masters. And don't just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident that you'll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you're serving is Christ. The sullen servant who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being a follower of Jesus doesn't cover up bad work. 

Dear Jesus, thank You for my husband and all that he is to us! Please bless him and help him to obey You regardless of what comes his way. Please help him to trust You and serve You with his whole heart. Please let him have a pure motive to serve You the best he can and to serve others the best he can. I know he might not get the appreciation from others that he deserves, but please help him to remember that when he serves others, he serves You! We love You, Jesus! In Your name, Amen!

God bless you all

and cheers to Project 366!

Yay for new spring clothes. I havent bought anything. I guess I am waiting to lose a couple winter pounds first!


I always love buying new clothes (: can't imagine what it will be like when I have a little girl...Anthony might have to confinscate my credit cards lol. I haven't read or seen The Hunger Games. I am thinking about just going against the norm of what I normally do and see the movie first and read the books if I like the movie. Good to see its addicting (:
