Inspiration

Jared has banned me from working this afternoon and instructed me to sit on the couch and read. Here are a few things I found that inspired me. 

Our women's retreat this year was about journaling and I have been trying to do better (as in two or three entries a week instead of two or three a month). I enjoy it when I do it. This article on desiringgod is especially useful. I am thankful for it.

Scalloped shorts!! When I have my first girl, I am making these for her.

This shirt is cute. I would probably make the front a bit higher. It could even be made into a cute dress.

Martin came running out the other day holding my can opener, which is stored in my knife drawer. It was a bit scary. I need to make something like this or buy one of hose magnetic knife racks. I have always wanted those.

Wipes from old t-shirt!!! This is awesome. I am doing this for baby two. I wish Jared hadn't just thrown away a bunch if old undershirts last week. Boo.

Also, has anyone ever made ratatouille? I have all the ingredients in my csa box this week and I am thinking of making it, but I don't know if I will like it. Maybe I will make it for Sunday night dinner and then I can share it. Ha ha. Thoughts? I like the Pixar movie. :)
