Miscellany Monday

It's Monday...not sure yet if it's maniac, marvelous, or mmmhpp...

Here we go...
1. We cleaned out our junk drawer...so exciting right?!  Well, it was amazing to see how much "junk" was in there.  We literally threw almost all of it away, all those I will use that coupon next time, all those we might need this miscellaneous items like screws, nails, paper clips, etc.  It was liberating and now I don't want to put anything in that drawer again.  Well, until next week, next week I will need a place to store my crap!

2. The Just One conference is back again this week...go here for details!  I was so encouraged last week, and I am sure this week will be no different!

3. Molly lost her second tooth at church yesterday!  You know the one that was barely hanging on, all it needed was a day old Panera bagel and it was out.  Thankfully the tooth fairy remembered to visit last night.

4. Our Valentine's mailboxes have been going great!  I have actually remembered to put something in them every night, this is huge for me.  Molly loves reading her note or coupon that is left for her.  On Saturday she got a coupon for a movie night...she redeemed it that night.  We watched 101 Dalmatians and popped popcorn.  Eric even took her up the road to get a slushy at the Speedway.  {Wow, I just sounded really redneck there}  She enjoyed the slushy, popcorn, and movie!  It was a lot of fun.

5. Today Amanda over at OhAmanda is kicking off a monthly mission series with my wonderful friend, Erin, from Home With The Boys!  Please click over to read all about it.  It's a great way to encourage your child and yourself to get involved in missions and helping people around the world and in their backyard.  This month we are collecting nickels for mosquito nets.  Please, please click over and read more about it!  And if you want to send my girls nickels, we will gladly accept them! 

6. So remember a couple weeks ago when I told you all I had a lot of crafting to do with Molly's half birthday celebration at school, Vday gifts for the class, and Vday gifts for the teachers...yea I have done zero!  I need to get motivated...pray for motivation, and that I am not last minute Mary on all of that!

7. I am starting to think my word for 2013 should have been Faith instead of Loving, but when I think about 1 Corinthians 13, I am again reminded why I chose Loving...yet, I am really working on the whole Faith thing, too!
