Scottsdale Day Trip

The kids both finished their math books last week and we usually like to celebrate this milestone by taking them out for a treat. One of the kids' favorite places to go for things like this is Streamers, but they closed several months ago.
So sad.
Anyway, Kayla said she wished they were open and so I went online to see if there were any other old-fashioned ice cream parlors around town. I found this place called the Sugar Bowl in Scottsdale.
We've taken the kids to Scottsdale on another occasion for a free trolley ride around Old Town Scottsdale, and so we thought we would do that again and treat them at the Sugar Bowl. The weather was beautiful and it made for a nice time together.
Here's some pics of the day:

I've never seen a limo like this one... only in Scottsdale:

The free trolley! If you ever visit Scottsdale, this is a fun thing to do. Here's some info about it if you're interested.

Cute Sugar Bowl napkin.

Cute kids at Sugar Bowl. ;-)

Each of the kids ordered a Desireme Banana Split!

That was our fun day trip! =)

Brave or Crazy?

You decide.

Let me tell you what I did yesterday...
Are you ready?

Okay, I cut my own hair! Aaaaah!
I watched a YouTube video. Yes, seriously. It was actually this video HERE.

Maybe the method is all wrong...

But I was pleased with the results...

And I haven't been pleased the last couple of times I've had my hair professionally cut.

My husband thought I had gone and had it professionally cut, it looked that good.

The question is, would I do it again?

Absolutely!! I really would!

How about you? Have you done anything brave (or crazy) recently?

BTW, yes, I took all these pictures of myself just because I'm weird. I love that reason! =)

Pinch Me! I'm Tempted to Sew!

You read that right!
And if you know me, that's rare.

I'm thinking that this tutorial might tempt me to get my sewing machine out.
In case you're wondering what could tempt me to do that,
you can check it out HERE for yourself.
You may even be tempted to make one, too!
Enjoy your day!

Thoughts from James

Just a little tidbit to share from what I read this morning while I was reading James. I was struck with the simplicity of this verse:

"Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praises."

James 5:13

Either way, whether things are going wonderfully or going terribly, the focus should remain the same - on the Lord. The suffering should turn us to God to pray. The happiness should turn us to God to praise Him.

Hoping you have a day today that is focused on the One and Only who truly matters in this life that is merely a vapor. May we find our minds fixed on Jesus today.

The Beginning...

Today marks the first post for my new blog: Faith, Family, Food, & Fun. I have another blog that I share with my mom where I post about card making, stamping, and papercrafting, but sometimes I have other things I want to share that, frankly, don't belong there. Soooo, meet my new blog! I'm looking forward to sharing little bits of this and little bits of that about life.

I'll be back soon!
