Misc. March

Today is Easter! It was a beautiful day to celebrate our Risen Lord with our church family and with our extended family over ham, potatoes, and yeasty rolls. Easter pictures to come in a future blog post…

I’ve been kind of AWOL here on this blog and that is because we MOVED! A week ago yesterday was the big day (though Ed & I cleaned the new house on the Thursday night before and moved hanging clothes and boxes and such on Friday) and it went really well! We had super help, pretty good weather (as opposed to the snow/hail/wind/sun crazy weather we had on Friday) and we were all in, with all beds assembled and made, and the old house cleaned, by 5:00 p.m. It’s been a busy week of sorting and organizing and getting used to things, but it already feels like home. Pictures to come in a future blog post. This week is spring break so I am hoping for LOTS of unpacking and organizing to be accomplished and hoping for more opportunities to meet and get to know our new neighbors…more on that later.

This blog post is about stuff from earlier in March, so let’s get rolling:


These two goof balls are best friends. This is how they were watching TV at my parents house the other day. Who but your best friend and sister would willingly let you use them as a mattress and pillow?


Becca insisted on shooting hoops in the freezing rain a couple weeks back. This was right after the “time change” so it was light much later into the evening, so she was thrilled that it was still light out even after she had finished her homework and piano.


A couple weeks ago, Ed & went to the BibleTech conference that Logos puts on in Seattle. Well…Ed went to the conference and I just had fun. We left on Thursday evening, ran some errands together (which hardly ever happens), and even went out for dinner at one of our favorite places, Johnny Carino’s. On Friday the conference began bright and early so he was off and gone. I slept in a bit and then had a leisurely Starbucks breakfast in downtown Seattle with my AZ bestie and another Logos wife who came as well. Then they headed north to a mall to meet some other friends and I went to Ikea. Going to Ikea by myself with a new house in mind to shop for = a dreamy couple of hours! I had lunch at Panera (where I happened to see our pastor & his wife who were in Seattle bringing relatives back to the airport – how coincidental is that?) and ate some absolutely amazing mac & cheese. I can’t even believe I’m blogging about mac & cheese, but it was seriously delicious. Creamy & cheesy goodness in a bowl.

I did a little more shopping on my own and then headed to meet up with the Logos wives and friends for some more shopping and dinner. Lots of laughs and girl talk is always good for the soul.

I spent a quiet evening in the hotel room watching cable (did you know there’s such a thing as gluten-free cat food? I don’t ever see commercials, so I didn’t…and I think that’s just plain weird) – specifically a show called “Say Yes to the Dress” which is hysterical and sad all at the same time.

On Friday I got to hang with the two Logos wives from AZ for most of the day. We went to the original Starbucks,


Pike Place Market,



the Gum Wall (GROSS!),


an antique store, and the waterfront.


Here Tam’s trying to make the ever-important decision of which pressed penny to purchase for the scrapbook of her trip. We {{heart}} pressed pennies!

The AZ wives were wanting to head to the Space Needle, but I wasn’t super excited about that and kind of wanted to start heading for home, and Ed wasn’t too excited about his last workshop anyway. So, they went off to the monorail and Seattle Center without me and Ed & I headed back north towards home. We made several stops, including an AT&T store to get my voicemail fixed, Hobby Lobby (what a good husband to go with me to HL!!), and of course, Chipotle for dinner!


Hopefully since this is spring break, blog posts will not be so scarce…
