surprise! & an award!



Surprise! Moses is just full of surprises in the book of Genesis. Like I said -- I've never read the whole book of Genesis, just certain parts.. which means that I missed some weird (crazy) little details.

Like Lot's daughters getting him drunk and getting pregnant by their dad?! Um, woah.


But really, this little 90 day journey is so fun! It seriously is like reading the best story ever told (is that a quote from CS Lewis?) -- but different, because I'm finding little bits of (crazy) information that I never knew! I'm mostly excited about reading the OT, because I've read the NT multiple times -- even so, I know I'll find a ton of more things that I never saw before. Pretty thrilling! In 86 (or 88) days, I'll have read the whole Bible! Wow!


In other news, it's official: my mom, dad, and Clayton are coming to visit me in early April! My sister is busy obtaining her second master's degree, working a full-time job, part-time job, growing my third nephew, mothering my first and second, and packing up her house, so my parents are bringing C with them! I've been diligently scrounging the internet for things to do in the area. So far I've come up with a fun-filled day spent in Richmond: the children's museum, the big science museum, and their big mall! Should be really fun!


And surprise! Brittney from Back to the Quarry gave me an award! I'm sure most of you know her (especially because I see you blog-hopping from my blog to hers!) but if not, you should check out her blog! Her husband is Mark's best friend, and we love love love them! Oh, and of course I love Brittney!!!! (a whole lot!!) and our dogs just happen to be best friends as well. So basically we're like one big group of best friends. Yep!

So getting this award means that I have to list 10 things that make me happy:

1. When Piper rings her poochie bell, I take her outside, and she immediately goes to the bathroom and I don't have to wait for her to find a good spot on the grass.
2. Getting packages from my Air Force Wife buddy, Tara!
3. As of recent -- finding new bits of info in the Bible!
4. My nephews... :)
5. Getting calls from my nephews and hearing new words that Huds is learning.
6. Discussing The Young & the Restless with my mom.
7. Taking pictures with my hubby and dog!
8. David Crowder Band!!
9. Teen Mom, Secret Life, Biggest Loser, and 18 Kids & Counting.

and now I'm passing this award to...

Emmy @ The World Inside My Head
Erin @ Air Force Bride
Maegan @ Maegan, Jack & the Baby
Stephanie @ The Nurse Is In
Stephanie @ Uniquely Normal
Meaghan @ M and J Hooray
Kris @ Family of Little People

See you all tomorrow!
