In A Quandry & Catching Up

Once again it has been one of those weeks.  I thought I knew the answers to every things and figured it all out but alas no luck. A bit discouraging.

I applied for an upcoming mission trip with a very well known agency and unfortunately, I didn't make the cut this time around.  Discouraging yet uplifting because I know that the timing was obviously not right and there is still work to be done to put me in the place that I need to be for something that big.  Not to mention I received a lovely email from one of the well known coordinators who had nothing but good things to say and who wants to continue dialogue and perhaps I can get into one of the upcoming trips.  So that is what I shall do.

In the mean time, another opportunity may be creeping up upon us which I am thrilled about.  A few members of our church are founding members of an orphanage in Mexico and every now and again they take a team down to help out with projects and to work with the children.  A team recently returned from there which included my friend Jill.  They are hoping to get another team scheduled to go down there in the next few months and that team will *hopefully* include either my husband or myself.  I am so excited however it works out.  Just as long as one of us can go down there to help and share the love that these children so desperately need.

We have a bowling party tomorrow for our 5 year old (his birthday was on Monday).  I am making a bowling themed cake tonight.  Crossing my fingers it comes out the way I envisioned.  I am not much of a baker, not that I can't bake, it just isn't something I am totally excited about.  I will share some pictures with you tomorrow.

On Sunday we have church potluck and cake auction.  I am making a SW Tator Tot bake, Thai Cole Slaw and some really cool Rice Crispy Treat Ice Cream Cones.  I will share recipes and pictures of these as well hopefully early next week.

I have a couple giveaways coming up.  So make sure to check back in with me shortly. 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! 


  1. Mexico? Now that's sounds interesting, hope it goes the way you want it to. Sounds like you've found the sort of thing you want to do, it will all fall into place in the way it's meant to I'm sure.

  2. I love that video of the Ranch. I can't wait to go down there with you and some others from Harvest.


I *heart* comments!
