Have you ever started a Bible reading plan? I have. Have you finished it? I haven't. I have started many reading plans and have yet to finish. So, when I saw Mom's Toolbox is having the 90 day Bible Reading Challenge, I knew I would have to sign up. I am a sign up kinda gal.
We will be starting on 7/11 and ending on 10/8. There will be weekly check in's and mentors if you sign up in time. I love this idea of being accountable, this is probably why I haven't finished in the past. Dah!! She is saying to allow yourself anywhere from 1 to 1.5 hours daily to get the Bible reading done. So now is a good time to start clearing your calendar for that alone time with God and dig deep in the Word. I call it my TAWG (Time Alone With God).
Here is the official sign up link.
Just do it. (Sounds like Nike). It will be fun, we can do it together :) Challenge yourself, I am sure going to try.
God Bless and let's dig deeper into God's Word.

The other day, Shane mentioned Elephant Ears and how yummy they are. So, I got to thinking!! Hmmm! Why don't I check out Laura at Heavenly Homemakers for a recipe. Low and behold, she had a yummy recipe for funnel cakes. It is a little more on the healthier side and I did a few changes to her recipes. So, stop by and give it a try.

My pictures are scattered much like my thoughts this evening. Here is just a few things going on around here. I hope everyone is having a blessed summer.
|Abbi and Brady shopping with mom.|
|We found these shirts at Meijer. How cool is that?!! We were looking for Father's Day t-shirts but to no avail.|
|Homemade yogurt and granola with strawberries. Turned out yummy.|
|The sky through the sunroof in the car.|
|My husband while he was driving.|
|Abbi learning to ride.|
|1 st day of VBS. Brady got kicked out on the 2nd day. Such is the life of Brady. But went back the third day and made it the rest of the week. Praise Jesus.|
|Me and Culley hanging out by the water waiting for VBS to be over. Love hanging with just him.|
|Flowers and a thank you card from a neighbor for keeping the dog quiet. Come to find out that she just had a baby and our dog was barking at night keeping her and the newborn up. OOpps. God is great. What a generous neighbor despite our noisy dog.|
|Cullen having fun walking by the water.|

Today I did a little Meijer shopping. There was a two day sale. I took Brady with me, what was I thinking?? Anyway I did pretty good and scored alot.
Let's break it down. First of all, I want to thank Bargains to Bounty. Without her I would be lost.
The Super Sale was on.
My total of out pocket was $90.20 ( I wish I took a picture!!)
I saved $$77.05
I ended up with a few store coupons after for the total of $17.00
so really my final total was $73.20. Whhooo Hoo.
Oh, and I get 8 ears of corn for free since they were out of it today, but I got my rain check.
Little piece of advice: I carry my IPhone with me (at all times) so when there is crazy deals like the A1 Steak Sauce deal and I know there is going to be an issue. I will take a picture of the deal description by the product to show to the cashier or service desk. This saves time in the long run.
All in all, it was a pretty productive shopping trip.

But not to bed a minute later until she showed me this morsel. What the heck??@@!! Oh yeah, it is not a mouse or a turd, it is her hair mixed up with some silly puddy. I tried to untangle, but to no avail. So, the scissors made an entrance and with one snip the culprit was gone and Brady was off to bed or else. This story has not included my 10 yr old crying and whining about her punishment and my 6 yr old talking back, so hefty punishments were given out and I hope this isn't how we are starting our summer vacation.!!??
|She is just cute and diabolical all at the same time.|
|Wanted her picture taken before bed :)|
|The only time she is really good. Sleeping at the dinner table.|
