Salisbury Saturday

We spent most of our day today in Salisbury. It was a beautiful day! We started out going by Tastebuds Coffee, because sister-friend here needed some coffee! Even if it was decaf, it seemed to help wake me up! :) And then, we were off to the Farmer's Market!

Our spoils! Challah bread, Whole Wheat bread from nice Mennonite people, Banana Bread (okay, we like bread...) Maple Almond granola, Zucchini relish, and Inferno Salsa! Yummmm!

Michael sportin' our new Boba Carrier! We love it!

Cutie-pie... he loves being outside and being around fun happenings! So many things to see!

I love this lady! She is my good friend, Neta Monroe. She makes cute bags and homemade laundry soaps. She's also got lots of cute chickens and super cute gardens. In case you missed it, she's just cute!!!

She gave me one of her bags for free! Yeah! Should I say it? It's super CUTE!

I'll say it again.... I love this lady! We had lunch with her and her husband, Rob.

I got these at an antique store. Vintage children's books for 50% off! Sweet!! I'm gonna make children's artwork hopefully with these and maybe rent a booth of my own at the market. Maybe in the fall. I'll keep y'all posted :)

Then we came home and crashed! Family naptimes are so sweet. :)

**update on baby bunny- he likes living here and he's popping around quite a bit as I write this blog. So cute! He's grown a little but he's still super little. I'll try to get a picture of him :)
We live in a Disney movie.

the news 5.26.11

Cinnamon Raisin bagels really stink up a pantry.
I wanted a big bowl of my homemade gumbo last night at about 2am. A nursing mom is worse than a teenage boy... I could eat us out of house-and-home, for real!

GUMBO!! Yummy!!!!

The garden is planted! I can't wait to sink my teeth into some fresh watermelon and make my own pickles! I've never done that before and I'm curious to see if I'm any good at it! I know they probably won't be shimmering gold and sing and dance for me, but they might be alright. :)

Woke up this morning with PRAISE on my lips!

Oh, for a Thousand Tongues to Sing

By: Charles Wesley

Oh, for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise,
The glories of my god and King,
The triumphs of his grace!

My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of your name.

The name of Jesus charms our fears
And bids our sorrows cease,
Sings music in the sinner’s ears,
Brings life and health and peace.

He breaks the power of canceled sin;
He sets the prisoner free.
His blood can make the foulest clean;
His blood avails for me.

Look to the Lord, who did atone
For sin, O fallen race.
Look and be saved through faith alone,
Be justified by grace.

See all our sins on Jesus laid;
The Lamb has made us whole.
His soul was once an offering made
For every human soul.

To God all glory, praise, and love
Be now and ever given
By saints below and saints above
The Church in earth and heaven.

John is 5 months old today!

We've had almost half a year with our little John! How time flies! Here's some photos to celebrate!

rainy days and sleepless nights

I should be napping.
John is napping but he is king of cat-naps so I don't dare get too comfortable. Instead, I am watching the dreary morning pass by. I got to make myself coffee this morning. I don't always have time for that so when I do, I try to do it right!

My espresso con panna (espresso with yummy homemade whipped cream!) Decaf of course. It was delicious. J-bird wanted a sip too! He about knocked it out of my hands a couple times trying to steal it away from me. :)

Like he needs coffee! He needs to sleep! At night preferably!

Welcome back to the world of blogging!

I'm gonna start blogging again. Because my life is so blessed that I have to share!!

Firstly, since my last post, obviously I gave birth to a brilliant, handsome, amazing little boy. My sugar-pie, John Isaac is the joy of my heart. He is almost 5 months old now. He started rolling over and skooting around pretty good. He's a tough little guy too. He'll bang his head on something and not even flinch. Oh, but he'll cry and yell at you if you put him down to cook some dinner. :) He's a snuggle-bug and I secretly love that about him.

I love being a stay at home mom! I wouldn't want it any other way! Michael is working for his dad again and he's really enjoying that. Our God and Savior has provided so beautifully for my family, it amazes me. :) Here's some photos to properly usher in this new season of blogging fabulousness. The picture at the top are some of my favorite flowers in our garden!

The boy! Sleeping soundly as I type this :)

I left some carrots out for our baby bunny who lives in our bushes!

Me, my mommy-do, and my sweetie.
