behind the times

so i wrote this post ohhh like a month or more ago i think and just never hit publish.  weird.  so for a trip down memory lane here's just a little update with some here and there's.  more current info in teal.  and fair warning this is all real random.

made these from a box but look how pretty:

i will pin anything with 'free printable' attached to it.  if you want me to come to your site and stick around, a "free printable" is just what i need.  if you see anything good send it on my way.  and if you're looking for some yourself you can steal mine {HERE}.

saturday was awesome [who knows what saturday this really was].  i slept in {woot woot} hung out with the hubs, and then some of our best friends came over to visit and to help us figure out what to do with our terrible blank walls.  i scrounged up all of my frames from around the house and laid them on the floor.  rach helped lay them out.  after tracing the frames on newspaper & arranging them on the wall i think we have something really good going.  right now the frames are drying out in the garage after some good ol' spray painting. [update: they are actually hanging on the wall now.  all my friends are amazed that something is hanging on my walls....however, they are still without pictures because i'm super indecisive.  whomp whomp.  i'll take & post a pic soon, maybe even if they're still empty.  that's real life for us i guess.]
laying them on the ground was a good idea, tracing them on newspaper to pre-place on the wall [with tape]was also a good idea.  however we didn't label our newpaper so we got worried that we wouldn't know what went where since some of the frames are similar.  so...i snapped this pic so we'd remember the order.  turns out...thats a good plan too because we were totally confused without it.

we made dinner twice in 1 week [ahhh this happened again this week, i told you we're improving.  i shall call that a miracle]

i figured out my second greatest fear {that doesn't have eternal consequence}.  being the couple in the restaurant who never speaks.  do you ever see them?  looks like they're out on a 'date' and neither one says anything the whole meal.  it makes me so sad.  benny, i hope our dates are always full & deep & fun & lively.  i never want to be that couple.

and back to's friday!  in real life.  right now.  i'm so excited about that.  this week has kind of flown by and i have no idea where it went. 
--thank you for your prayers for our meeting last night.  i'm excited about the truths that we were able to lay out with our mormon friends.
--tonight i'm hoping to do some haunted house hunting or at least a scary movie night [like hocus pocus wooooooooo...ghost sound] with hs friends
--tomorrow we get to have a blasty blast party with all our friends, homemade oktoberfest here we come.  i'm way hyped!
--we're currently puppy parents.  just for the week. the furballs are running the house.  literally running all over the place and also like running the show.  they do what they want.  and awesome sidenote: yesterday morning i took the pups outside before i left for work.  they saw a squirrel on the roof and our black furbaby ran over to the air conditioning unit and tried to jump on top of it in order to get to the roof.  1.  he couldn't even make it on top of an ac unit, he's tiny and it's less that 3' tall  2. our roof is way higher than 3' even if he could get up there.  hilarious.  our pups are wild. 
--i keep seeing ladies in really cute outfits on blogs etc. who say things like "belt: thrifted"  i've been looking through old belts for months and haven't ever found anything good.  c'mon goodwill - somebody give me your old, awesome belt! 
--and not to be a complete weirdo but i really enjoyed this sermon on who God is and the reality of Hell [vs. common misconceptions].  i really think you'd be encouraged by it.  listen here.  it's tim keller.
