Remember how there for awhile I was constantly blogging about my college friend Jamie and how she was going to Malawi, Africa? Well, you've got to see what she and her husband, Daniel, have been up to! I mean seriously, I can hardly believe she's in an African village killing her own chicken dinner! Keep praying for them!

And Nathan is now Christian's most talked about "best friend."
We were so thankful they could come for a visit, even if it was just for 24 hours!
This house is heading to foreclosure and we like it, but it's in a neighborhood.
Then there's this beauty (hmmm...not quite). I don't even think we could live in the house... yes, it's that bad. Let's just say the only thing that lives in it right now is a multitude of cats. But it's headed to auction and it's on over 4 acres. Love the land, not the house. We would have to tear down and build ourselves.

Okay, try not to be jealous of my room. I know, those are in fact my old living room curtains in my bedroom that don't match the bedding and they're even hung on 97cent white metal curtain rods from Walmart. And what you can't see is that there are 3 windows in the room and curtains at only two of them, but you can't see that...right? And don't look at the frumpy bed....LOOK at the black four poster bed!! This picture doesn't do it justice. I'll have to show it to you again when it's in my new house and there aren't unpacked boxes in the corner of the room. Anyway...I LOVE IT!
Alright... I hope nobody thinks it's tacky that I tell you how much I paid for this but here goes! It was $99.00 Now that might now seem like a great deal to you until I tell you that it's from the Pottery Barn Teen line and I looked it up online and that thing originally cost $1,100.00 WooHoo! What a deal! Won't that be cute (when it's not in my kitchen...apparently those metal drawers are really heavy and Ryan refused to carry it up 30 steps to Christian's room) in Christian's sports themed bedroom one day. My only regret is that I didn't buy the bed or the side tables. They were selling the side tables for $45 each and they cost $350 new. Ugh...why didn't I buy them. Oh well!
Aren't these apothecary jars the best! Can't you just picture them filled with Christmas ornaments at Christmas time and acorns in the fall and eggs at Easter....so many possibilities!
And McKenna was very proud of her sunglasses. And the matchbox car is still there!
