saturday stuff ~

Well, other than accomplishing absolutely nothing! This day is a nice Saturday, perfect weather! I ran out to check the mailbox a little bit ago and found a couple of nice surprises...

Amanda sent the sweetest believe sign with Psalm 107:20 handwritten on the back "He sent His word and healed them." and "I" for Izzy! It came all wrapped in purple tissue paper, so Amanda! Loved it! Thank you!

Then there was another package from my secret mailer! The theme for August was "all about you"... her card said, "Annie, I did not forget about august's all about me theme - I was looking for something that reminded me of you - that when you wore it would know what joy you bring! Sorry it was late- I hope you enjoy it!" Then I opened the little box to find a beautiful little cross that says believe on it. Trust me - I will enjoy it! It is perfect. Thank you.

You guys I hope my tears of gratitude aren't destroying my laptop!

On another note (I know you guys are getting sick of hearing me brag about my mail!) the girls (Amanda and Emelia) were doing the beauty shop thing this morning. Amanda is helping at a church dinner for the senior citizens called "silver servers" tonight. The theme is the '50's. She is going to be Marilyn Monroe. Mom made her the infamous white dress and we found perfect shoes last night... that with lots of curlers, liquid eye liner, and fake eyelashes... voila ... Marilyn! I plan to take some pics tonight before she leaves! But for now, here are the before pics!
Look what Karen gave me!

Thank you Karen!


You make me smile!
Yes YOU!!!

I love your mailbox news! It's fabulous. I only seem to get bills in mine and snails that seem to know not to eat bills but any enjoyable mail. Ha Ha.

I can't wait to see the "after" pictures! That sounds like it was a good time - especially for the senior citizens. I'm trying to figure out the timing...if the 50's was a fun time for the people that are seniors now, what's going to be the decade they use when I'M a senior citizen?....I guess it would be either the 80's or, maybe if I stretch it a little, the 90's. Does that mean the kids will be dressing as Boy George or Michael Jackson? eeeeck! I may have to skip my "silver servers dinner". lol

I love your mail box news. I think it's wonderful to share how blessed we are by others. That's part of God's plan isn't it?

Can't wait to see the pictures!! How fun. We had this type banquet around Valentine's at our church where the youth department served us. It was such a nice, special time. Individual sit down tables for 2 or 4 with linens and all the trimmings. Fun for us adults and a good training for the youth.
