Favorite Things

I thought I would share a few of my favorite things that I am using this year to help me study God's word.

The first being the Scripture Reading Plan I am using provided by the Journey church. I like it because if you get behind it is easy to get caught up. :)

The second is what I am using to help me memorize verses. I have always wanted to memorize Philippians and shared that desire with my husband. He directed me to this site which has a VERY helpful guide to memorizing Philippians!

Happy Birthday to Me :)

This was probably one of the best birthday's I've had. Several of the kids at school brought precious little gifts. One of my dear, dear friends brought me flowers, balloons and a gift card to school and my sweet hubby brought me lunch and ate with me AND had gorgeous flowers sent to the school. The flowers Josh had sent to the school game during lunch when he was eating with me so our school secretary brought them into the lunchroom and the whole lunchroom sang Happy Birthday. I was a bit embarrassed by that. It was sweet. :) It was a great day. To top it all off, I wasn't quite as depressed about my age this year as I was last year. :)

Sweet Emma and me on my birthday.

Josh and Emma made me a birthday cake. :) Emma is SO proud of it! :) Funfetti cake is one of my favorite boxed cakes. I think they are yummy. :) We treated ourselves to new phones for our Birthday. It was time for us to renew our contract. We have never before acutally "purchased" a phone. We always just get the free phone that comes with upping your contract. This time though, we upgraded to the new Samsun Epic 4G phone with a data plan. I must say that in some weird way being able to check email, etc throughout the day does save alot of time. I find that I'm hardly ever on my computer now unless I'm downloading pictures, updating the blog or working on something for school. I love our new phones and Emma enjoys playing games on them too. :)

Looks like a great birthday! You got some gorgeous flowers! How sweet of Josh to surprise you! Emma's cake looks delicious. Glad it wasn't too traumatic of a birthday for you.

P.S. I love my smart phone too. It IS nice to check e-mails throughout the day. No more daunting e-mails to catch up on when I get home :)
