Keeping it Extremely Real!!!


So in the spirit of randomness and fun I thought I'd let you take a look at my kitchen right now as we speak, uhhh blog, uhhhh you know what I mean ~~
Please note: This is the "extremely real" part of this post :O)
Yes it is a "REAL" mess!!

Here is the stove at current moment . . . is that an ice tea pitcher on your burner?
And I hate to point this out . . . but is that a (gasp) hair holder back thingy on your stove?

Yes people to both of those questions?
Yeah I don't know why ~~ moving on . . .

Do you see the hand-held cheese grater in the lid? Yep that is nice touch I think :-)
Oh and the Christmas glass . . . again nice touch!!

Oh and speaking of nice touches . . . this is the tape that we use to tape my knee cap in place everyday . . . yep fun times :0) and yes it is by the microwave and no it doesn't belong there!!!

But through it all this is our sentiment . . . really and truly . . . we are thankful.

We are thankful for this season, because we have learned so much and are still learning so much. Our neighbors got this for us as a gift . . . thanks L & J. . . . oh and the yellow and pink flowers you see there are from our garden . . . their strawflowers. They dry beautifully!! Love them!!

I picked this up today. My friend K and I will be finishing up the Bible Study we are currently doing (see next pic ~~ my chronological arranging needs some help ;o) so we decided to do the follow-up for our next study. We will start that next Wednesday.

Notice the title ~~ yep very fitting for this season!!

This is current Bible Study . . . Again the title ~~
Oh yes and this is the book I got at the library . . . It is really good. It's different than what I usually read, but I'm enjoying it. . . I'll be letting ya know about that one.
Then this is my mail find for the day . . . . ahhhhh I love this kind of mail. In the last week I've gotten MSL, Cottage Living and this one . . . and just in time for our road trip ~~ yeah!!!!
Okay and now for the self portait. I felt it was necessary to document in pics the present time for me. . . look at the eyes people, the eyes (and not the eye brows) yes I am extremely tired ~~ But I'm hangin' in because
"I know whom I have believed and am persauded that He is able to keep that which I've commited unto Him against that day!!"

Thank you so much for your prayers and all of your sweet comments. I hope you all have a restful and fun weekend. Tomorrow we are off to Dak's SWCL conference meet this weekend about an hour and a half or so from here and then we're going to go get baby Sky ~~ WOOHOO!!!

Blessings to you, Dawn


  1. I, too, get excited when new magazines come in the mail! My Cottage Living came this week, too, and hopefully I will have some time to look at it over the weekend. I also love Real Simple magazine. It has so many helpful little hints and short articles on things.

    Praying for you as you travel to the conference meet this weekend and praying for Dak! Enjoy that baby, too!

  2. What precious pictures of that baby!!!!
