Why did he send me this video? Surely he doesn't think that all my meaningful chatter sounds like this...right? HA!
Happy Friday =)

1-6 Sing, barren woman, who has never had a baby. Fill the air with song, you who've never experienced childbirth! You're ending up with far more children than all those childbearing women. "God says so!" Clear lots of ground for your tents! Make your tents large. Spread out! Think big! Use plenty of rope, drive the tent pegs deep. You're going to need lots of elbow room for your growing family. You're going to take over whole nations; you're going to resettle abandoned cities.
Pretty incredible right? After I read that, I looked at scripture references to it and found this-
Tell me now, you who have become so enamored with the law: Have you paid close attention to that law? Abraham, remember, had two sons: one by the slave woman and one by the free woman. The son of the slave woman was born by human connivance; the son of the free woman was born by God's promise. Galatians 4:24
When I read this I was reminded of God's promise to Sarah and that His promise for me is GOOD. Then His Word led me to this-
Those who were well fed are now starving, and those who were starving are now full. The childless woman now has seven children, and the woman with many children wastes away. 1 Samuel 2:5
AMAZING stuff! Why would I NOT put my trust in such a faithful God? I can't find a reason either. Sorry this is super long but God put this on my heart and I just wanted to share it. Hope it blesses you where you're at.

From the back.
9 inches later...short and sassy! I love it! It was a crazy day. The original plan was to go to the Bartonville Health Fair, chop it all off for FREE, and then run to get a highlight from a friend of mine's hairstylist. I called the Health Fair the day before and they were only giving a cut and not layering, razoring, etc. I decided that wasn't for me. So I made a last minute apointment with ANOTHER hairstylist in the morning....craziness. My morning went like this-wash hair, 8 am hair cut, wash hair, come home, 1 pm highlight, wash hair, come home, wash hair, play with the new do! My hair was washed FOUR TIMES! It was nuts but it's over and now my hair is sassy and the hair that's gone is going to make a fancy wig for a sweet child dying to have some hair of her own.

Saturday is the big day...hair donation day! I'm going to get it ALL chopped. I'm SO nervous and a little bit excited. This long hair business is too hot for summer. Here's a few pic ideas
I've asked Chris a million times which one he likes and he doesn't care as long as I'm blonde(er). I haven't been able to put any bleach products in my hair because of the donation and Chris prefers it blonde. Lucky him, I'm ready for a change. I'll post pics on Saturday after the big event. Wish me luck!

Here's some pics for proof-
It's hard to see here but there's quite a bit of swelling.
Just wait until it starts to bruise! Just really red and swollen right now.
Poppin the muscle relaxers and pain killers. This tough guy wanted to try to go to work tomorrow. I didn't think that was such a good idea on HydroCodine!
I'll keep you posted on Coach's injury!

Here's my random thoughts for the day-
- Boo Swine Flu! It looks like our "Swine Flu Stay-cation '09" is coming to an early close. We were suppose to be off until May 11 to prevent the spread of the flu but now we're reporting back tomorrow. Apparently our districts thought it was a little ridiculous paying us to sit at home all day when this illness isn't really looking as bad as originally thought. I knew it was a little too good to be true. Oh well. I did get my master bathroom painted, house clean, and Chris did some work on the garage. It was definitely fabulous while it lasted.
- I just mentioned it above but our master bathroom is finally painted! I LOVE to paint my house but I'm terrible at all that it entails. I spend a good 45 minutes in the paint aisle deciding between 15 shades that I know would be perfect. Then I get home, open the can, start spreading it on the wall, and I hate it. NEVER FAILS! I tell myself I need to paint the whole room because it's impossible to tell if I like it or not by a few strokes on the wall. And guess what? I LOVE IT! Our master bedroom is a dark gray/tan and I wanted our bathroom to be the same color but lighter since it's such a small space. I went 2 shades lighter and PERFECTION.
- My goodness May is busy! My dad's birthday was this week, Mother's Day is Sunday, and my sister's birthday is the 17th. I'm terrible at buying gifts on time, especially since we live so far away from my family now. Looks like I need to go shopping!
I think that's about all my super exciting-stay at home-life has to offer right now. I'm sure it's going to get much more thrilling now that I'm going back to school tomorrow...

And if I have a boy he will be ADORABLE in this cute little beanie. I love them on baby boys!
And Fabulous K...I really, REALLY need a blog makeover....PLEASE!!!!!
Then, of course, we'll head to STL. We booked this trip so we could be there for the 4th of July and celebrate with friends, family, and some fire works. Can't wait to see everyone!
You know that saying "When God closes one door, he opens another"? Isn't that the truth! After he closed the door on IVF, we were blessed with HUGE vacation opportunities to spend time together before we do become pregnant and our lives are forever changed. This may be the only time that we will be able to travel like this alone and we're thankful for it.
All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful for those who keep the demands of his covenant.
