Bad Blogger Lady :-(

Yes, I know, I have been the no update Lady for too long. So here is my little update :-)

Aaron, as you saw from my previous post, has made it half-way through school. It sounds soooo surreal! I remember when me moved here and thought dental school would never, ever, ever end (bit of an exaggeration there). Now, it feels like the someone finally turned the light on at the end of the tunnel and we can see the little speck slowly getting brighter. God is so good!

This now brings to mind our living situation. Where does God want us? It's becoming more and more clear that we want to stay here in Portland, but time will tell. We are also starting to talk about housing, jobs, future practice for Aaron, and our adoption. So much has come out this year, it's like we're adults :-P It's so amazing how life works. Five years ago I would have never dreamed I would be here with my hubby making life changing decisions. I look back on the past and think hos awesome God is and how He has brought me and Aaron through everything. I know He will continue to lead us where He wants us.

Right now, I mainly need patience. I want everything to happen too quickly; I've always been that way. I pray that God will help me in that area, just give me patience. I hope everyone in blogger land is well! God Bless~


The above picture is from my parents' trip. It's the interior of an old pioneer church, I'm not sure where the church lives. God Bless!

Whoa Half Way There, Whoa Living on a Prayer

It's official, Hubby is halfway through school. I'm so proud of him and all of his acomplishments! It feels like we will actually make it and he will be done someday. To congratulate him, hop on over to his blog and leave him a note :-) God Bless!
Here is Mr. Handsome :-P

Wonderful Weekend

This weekend was wonderful. Mom, dad, grandpa, and Mary came through Portland on their 2 week trip across the west. It was so nice to see everyone. Here are a few pics from their trip, before and during their visit with us. God Bless!



Mary and Grandpa

Dad being silly :-P

Me and Aaron goofing around :-)

I will post more of their amazing pictures later. I'm just running short on time tonight. God Bless!

Someone's Been Playing in My Garden

I've been meaning to post these pictures for a while, and just seem to forget. Anyway, one morning as I was leaving for work I found these...

Weird Weather and Poor Little Cucumber

So we are in the midst of November-like weather, and last time I checked the calandar it was June. Craziness! Anyway, or little garden is doing okay, but our wee cucumber plant died. It was said. We had a rain storm a few nights ago and I came outside to find our little cucumber plant flat on the ground. Sigh... Oh well! The rest of the plants are doing fairly well, but they're small from the lack of sunshine. I heard a report that said we have had 13 days of sun this entire year. It will be interesting to see what the summer is like, if we ever get one :-)

I hope all of you in internet land are well. I will be offline for most of the weekend spending time with my parents and grandparents. I'm sooo excited, I haven' t seen them since Christmas. God Bless!

What We've Been Up To :-)

Well, we haven't been doing a whole lot lately. We had a much needed relaxing weekend at home, just spending time with each other and our fur babies. Today we went for a very long walk down to Reed College, about 5 miles from our house, and back home with Leila Lu. It was nice and overcast, but not raining. And the scenery, of course, was beautiful. Then we headed home for lunch and took a nice long nap :-) It was a wonderful weekend.

I also started on a new project. I'm doing my own version of a 1795 open robe coat, like the one pictured below on Marriane Dashwood.

Here is the start of mine :-)

And finally, I leave you with pictures of our little kitchen garden. It's coming along quite nicely. God Bless :-)
