Bloggers for Birth Kits

Today, while trying to catch up on blogs since being gone half the week, I came across this atypical wonderful call for help on Dear Baby. I had NO IDEA how something as natural as childbirth is still such a hardship in our world. Please take a look at the link HERE and read what Melissa has to say and then head over Adriel's website for even more information!

Vegas or Bust

Goodbye, world! Phillip and I are headed to Sin City tomorrow for a few days! Neither of us have ever been so we're both pretty pumped. We have no set plans. Also, we have no money. We'll see what happens!

A Week in Review and a Look to the Future

The past week or so has been great, but tiring! Last weekend alone we had two weddings. At work, I've started precepting a new employee. While it's been a good week at work, there's a little extra added stress teaching someone the ropes. Thank goodness she's so sweet and she picks everything up so well. Wednesday, I tagged along with the staff from New Life to the Diamondback's game to hear the Tremble Clefs {yes, that's really the name} sing the National Anthem. They're a singing group comprised of Parkinson's diagnosed men and women and one of New Life's own, Dave, is a member. I cried.

Also, now we're sweating. Thanks, but no thanks, Arizona heat.

That's my segue into the important stuff. We're leaving the Arizona heat. We don't know exactly when we're leaving, yet, but we're here definitely until a week or so after Houseboat camp {Yep. High school camp is on houseboats!} which is June 4-8. Yesterday, Phill's departure was announced at his staff meeting. Today, I turned in my formal resignation letter. We don't know specifically where we're moving TO, exactly, but we know we are moving closer to our families.

Basically, we could still use a lot of prayers for all the wide open blanks in our plan. Prayers for Phill to find a job, prayers for Alyssa to find a job, prayers for health, prayers for smooth transition with finances and everything else along the way, and prayers for safe travels once the time comes!

Bachelorette parties are commonly filled with various sorts of debauchery, as seen above. As maid (well, matron) of honor for my lovely Natasha come July, it is my duty to plan said event. Needless to will look nothing like the above picture. I do, however, want this to be a super fun night for the leading lady. I looked up some stuff via the all-mighty Google, but I thought I might as well turn it over to the great, and vast, blogging world to see what YOU guys think are some classy, but still super fun ways to spend a bachelorette party!

So hit with me with your best shot, world.
