This is definitely going to be a 'miscellany sunday' type post so I'm going to give you Topic headliners to help you (and I) feel orderly!
First things first-we are #86 on the girls list for the month of march!! I'm excited about some movement this spring, and hoping it keeps up. But even if it doesn't, I'm praying my faith will ;)
Next, the reason for the name of this post is because we are kicking off this beautiful spring time with a Green fundraiser! Over spring break, I started researching a fundraiser where we could recycle old/used phones and small electronics and be compensated for them-I love fundraisers that "fit" me, and I love to recycle-so it's a win/win situation. You give me (or send me) your old phones, ipods, mp3 players, tiny gadgets that are cluttering up our drawers and help out the environment by recycling them, while raising money for our adoption costs! We have some adoption friends that have made several hundred dollars doing this! Just message me and I'll send you our address if you'd like to send us some.
And while I was at home researching this fundraiser, my hubby was in New Orleans helping a church plant there build garden boxes for a school and do other neat community service projects-including a very tasty neighborhood crawfish boil that I did drive down for!! SO, when he got home, he said he would build us one too :) We just planted this weekend and I'm excited to see how our experiment garden will do!
I also wanted to let y'all know that I'm going to spend the month of April praying for the Horn of Africa. Our church has two mission teams in the"horn", and they are having a prayer initiative for this month. Each day is designated for a specific request for them, the church, the people they are serving etc. I may blog about certain days or things I'm learning as I pray so stay tuned...
Finally, to cap off this past week I'd like to share a pic of some of my favorite ladies :) Three of my cousins, Christa, Jennifer, Katie, and I all got to go to Chicago last weekend to celebrate all of our 30th birthdays because our husbands surprised us and are completely sneaky and aweosme! We all turned (or in my case are about to turn) 30 this year and I just LOVED getting to spend some time with my fellow 'winter croppers', as my grandfather used to refer to us! Here we are at Wrigley Field in the rain...notice that we're almost all wearing green ;) I'm a dork, but they know that-Happy Birthday girls!
