Due to circumstances, I've missed almost a month of joining in this uplifting exercise, so I thought I would quickly share a few things.
1. New "daring" manincure:
LOL, I just wanted to show you my new manicure - french tips with a silver line. I feel so rad with my nails done this way. By the way, that is a cake pop I am holding. We were experimenting and although we didn't make it beautiful, we made it yummy!
2. Eating out with my favorite young married couple:
We had a wonderful visit with Janae and Daniel. The best part was they managed to get back home to Oklahoma before the tornado hit in Joplin, MO. They travel close to Joplin to get home, and I'm so thankful they are safe!
3. My three cuties on the night of Malia's graduation:
I have to admit, though, I am NOT taking it well with having my last chickie leave the nest and be finished with high school. How did this happen???
4. Safety - This Thursday night, our area was predicted to have severe storms, possibly even 9 different cells that could spawn tornadoes! Although, a couple areas were hit with major damage, our little neck of the woods escaped damage. Praise the Lord!
5. As I've mentioned, we are doing a lot of remodeling since the flood damaged our home. I figure I might as well really change things up. Below is my new wall color for my kitchen, "Baked Bahama" from ValSpar paints at Lowes. Now, imagine white beadboard and white chair rail covering those open studs. We had to open up all the sheet rock and take out the insulation and spray bleach water inside to kill mold. Oh yeah, imagine a laminate floor there, too! And after 35 years of having a butcher block countertop, I am getting some kind of black marbly countertop. I haven't made the final decision yet.
Well that's Jerralea's world for the end of May. I hope all of you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, and do remember all those who have sacrificed for our freedoms, both national and spiritual.
We'll be celebrating the birth of a very special young lady, our first daughter, Elissa, this weekend. God has blessed us!
