Newest Obsession

 I realized today that I hadn't shared yet about my newest obsession - Lipsense!  I bought my first color last summer.  It was too light, so I never wore it.  Fast forward to January and I co-hosted a LuLaRoe and Lipsense party and got two more colors.  Then I got two more.  Now I have a list of at least four more I want and it grows every day.

Today I broke out the black leggings to wear with one of my favorite Amelias - the one I gave myself for my birthday last year.  It's funny, black leggings are so rare right now in the LLR world, that I actually avoid wearing mine as much as possible.  I don't want them to wear out!

At work today I spent some time going through all of my books, sorting what I'm keeping and what I'm willing to part with.  In the midst of some sentimental books, I found the Dr. Suess book my mom had people sign at my high school graduation party.  

This inscription was written by the pastor of my church all through my childhood: 

Claim the future


Phantom of the Opera

We've been on a bit of a musical kick lately, watching Chicago, Mouline Rouge, and the Phantom of the Opera.  It was interesting to watch Mouline Rouge and Phantom back to back.  The love stories in them are exact opposites.  In Mouline Rouge, the main female falls in love with the penniless man, but has to pretend to love the rich man.  In Phantom, she truly loves the rich man, but has to pretend to love the penniless man.  I had never noticed that symmetry before. 

Oh Deer!

Today I was reminded of one of my favorite things about the place we currently live.  We back up to the woods, so every couple of weeks the deer walk right up into our backyard! 



XOXO, Bethany

Leggings Roulette

We tried something new today in our VIP group.  St. Patrick's Day seemed the perfect day to launch a leggings roulette!  The idea is that 6 people purchase leggings, with a 1 in 6 chance to get a coveted black pair.  If they don't get the black pair, they get an awesome patterned pair, and $5 towards another purchase.

One of my favorite parts of serving at Friendship Haven is leading worship twice a week.  Our Thursday afternoon service is short, but meaningful.  I especially love the one time a month that a local pastor comes to lead worship, and I actually get to attend and worship myself.  I really am going to miss this when I leave.

Ski Day!

We got to ski today!!!  We used to buy season passes to Seven Oaks, but this year because of time, money, etc. we decided to forgo passes.  Since it's the middle of March I was afraid we had missed our chance to ski, but then I saw Buck Hill (my favorite place!) was having a special this week, we had today off, the stars aligned...  so we drove to Minnesota to ski today!

It was about 6 hours in the car for 4 hours of skiing and totally worth it.

It was freezing this morning when we went outside to take pictures.  I made Joel hurry to get some so I could get back inside!  I love this new pink Amelia I got from my friend Kerri.  It's so much fun to accessorize in different ways.  I actually wore a belt of my own volition today!  Joel was surprised because he usually has to force me to wear one with a Carly.  But I loved this gold one with the pink dress!

We have snow again!  I am most excited because I noticed our favorite ski place advertising specials for this week...only $20 for lift tickets!  Right now I am super thankful for my part time work schedule because that means we can drop everything and go ski on Wednesday!  It will be our first time this season, I miss when we used to ski all the time. 

Yesterday we did a photo shoot in the snow, so that's the picture you get for today.
