What's Your Mission?

"As believers, we are called to live a life of submission-submission to God. Submission simply involves taking your mission in life and putting it under the Lord. You take what you want to do and put it under what God wants you to do. God has a mission for your life, but you have to put your life under His control to fulfill that mission. And when you do, He blesses you to be able to fulfil what He has call you to do."
-Robert Morris
Have you surrendered your mission to God, so that he can truly bless you?

Grandma & Grandpa Come to Town

My parents came in town for a very fun and relaxing weekend! Our main goal today, actually all week, was to go to the Houston Zoo. Great idea, right? After all, we purchased a Zoo Pass last May and have yet to actually get our money's worth. Well, it turns out everyone and their dog, literally, had the exact same idea that we had. So after searching aggressively for a parking spot for about uhhh...30 minutes, not to mention the restless toddler who was not in his car seat for 29 of these minutes, we got the heck out of dodge. After escaping the mad chaos, we finally made our way to an empty parking garage. We paid 1 buck to park, and made our way to Discovery Green. It ended up being the prefect afternoon, and it was a great way to wrap up the day. Not to mention, Jett LOVED the freedom!

The boy LOVES LOVES LOVES his LIFE cereal. He started eating this over Christmas at his Grandparents house, and ever since, he doesn't care for the usual oatmeal in the mornings. (I'd be sick of it too if I ate that everyday for almost a year.) So this is Jett's breakfast of choice everyday. Yes, he makes choices. Despite being unable to understand what he says, he makes LOTS of choices these days....very, very independent, or so he thinks.

Sewing Lately

Remember this?
Well, that turned into this for miss Macie Grace. My first "Rollie Pollie."

I bought this pattern from made, one of my favorite sewing blogs.
This was no easy task, but it was SO much fun.
I learned A LOT from this project.

I also made this for miss Eleanor Claire...this is also from made.

If you are interested in making these, you can buy the Rollie Pollie
pattern here, and you can find the FREE skirt tutorial here.
