Transformed...an exploration

I am so excited, I am just bursting at the seams! I am going to be meeting with an amazing lady from my church, Debbie Swanson, to discuss Transformed Into Fire starting next Thursday.  I can't wait to see what great things God has in store and to continue on my journey of connecting my head and heart.  If you haven't read this book...buy it, it will change your life and the way you think about your relationship with God.  

{If you are a part of the Foothills family...stay tuned, I heard Debbie might be leading a study on this book in the Fall.}

My Spring Wishlist...

Because it's always fun to share fun stuff, wishes and such.

These Cute Flip Flops from Eddie Bauer, because all that preggo weight really did a number of my flip flops I wore every single day last spring/summer.  They had to be tossed in the trash, not even worthy of giving to Goodwill.

Pretty much the entire spring line from Eddie Bauer..love their stuff!
Vibram Five Fingers Running 'shoes.'  I actually tried these on...and liked them.  They have odd sizing...for example I'm  a size 39.  I've read a lot about barefoot running and its benefits, so these would be so fun to experiment with, plus I'm training for a mini-triathalon, so these would be fun to test out for that too.

Allium Garden Wreath...spring needs a good wreath.

 

A Vitamix Blender...cuz they're awesome.
    

This cozy pillow

A swimsuit for my triathalon


And finally..doesn't this bedding look scrumptious?  I want to dive in a take a long nap!!

Felt Food


Aren't these the cutest little play fruits you've ever seen?  I can't wait to get some for Lucy at feltplayground on Etsy...maybe for your birthday.

We are Family....a trip to Montana

We took a trip back to Montana a few weeks ago in March to visit the fam and introduce Lucy to her great-grandparents that hadn't met her yet.  It was Lucy's first trip to the Big Sky and our first as a family in over a year, which seems impossible.  We spent a lot of time catching up with everyone and eating way to much food.  We would really like to move back to Montana someday, but until then we will have to just pray and dream about it!


Auntie Lisa & Uncle Cliff
 Grady LOVES being outside...so Nana & Papa's yard is a real treat!

 One for Uncle Ry Ry...Grady makes the silliest faces when he eats.

 We went to Zoo Montana one afternoon with lots of Barta family.  They have homestead farm that Grady loves where you can feed the goats.

Lucy's 6 month Photos

When we were in Montana, Grandma Gale took the kids to get their pictures taken.  Lucy is 6 months, and it was the perfect opportunity to catch her smiley face.

Children of God

Watch this video...I love this song. Third Day is one of my absolute favorites and this is one of their newest releases.  Thanks to my friend Erin for the link :)

Hmmmmm!

Grady has fallen in love with Curious George.  I must say, it suits him quite well.  He loves to read Curious George and he has a little monkey that his Great-Nana gave him that he calls George.  After watching the show a few times, he has taken to saying "hmmm" while thinking with his finger on his chin/lips like the picture of George above.  It cracks us up.  Grady is definitely in the curious-overdrive toddler mode.  He climbs everything, takes things apart, opens everything (he loves to 'empty' the dishwasher for me, handing me things and having me put them away).  This is a challenging, but very fun age.  I love watching him learn and the cute way he talks.  He asks "What's This?" multiple times a day.  

The cutest sheets at Pottery Barn kids....I'd love to get them for Grady's toddler bed, but $49 = ouch!  I think he'll survive without them.
