A Little of This and That

Ahhh....it's been a very nice Sunday. Worshipping at church, lunch with friends and a lovely nap....How has your Sunday been?

Now I've got to get ready for a busy week. The next couple of days will be filled with getting the house all spic-n-span and packing our bags again--which, if you ask me, are two polar opposite activities. But, hey, I'm up for a challenge!! heehee!

We already had a little trip to Arkansas planned to visit family and celebrate The Princess' birthday. Then Vince received an invitation to speak at a church in El Dorado, AR this Wednesday, so that worked into our trip nicely. We're looking forward to a very fun time with friends and family!

Since listing our house this past Wednesday we haven't really had any interest yet--at least no showings. But it's been yucky weather ever since, too, cold and rainy. I'm hoping that's why no one has been in the mood to schedule showings. I have been noticing people creeping by and looking though, so that's good. We are really praying for a quick sale~if could pray with us we would really appreciate it!

Before I wrap up this very rambling post I just have to show you the newest addition to my cookbook collection. Vince surprised me with it this week on a family outing to Books-a-Million. I've had my eye on it for a while, but didn't really feel it was a justified purchase. I'm glad he did though!:)

Hello, Cupcake! is the cutest cupcake book I've ever seen!! I'm going to be trying it out soon, too, since The Princess' birthday is coming up. She's already got hers picked out, of course. So I'll be blogging about that later in the week, I'm sure.

So, now I'm off to get started on making lists: what needs to be done before our trip, what we need to pack, birthday party plans, etc.....

What a cute cookbook! We call Caboose Cupcake a lot. He's just Caboose on the blog. He actually has tons of nicknames...it's crazy!

Hubby was born in El Dorado. He moved to where we grew up together when he was about three. He loves to tell people that Lou Brock, one of his all-time favorite St. Louis Cardinal players, was also born there.

Will be praying for few showings but a very quick sale. Have a safe trip!

What a sweet cookbook, I think cupcakes are really the in thing right now. I got my taxes all ready for the accountant...but church was really nice.

*Fingers Crossed* for a quick sale of your house. Forgive me for not knowing, but what's on the horizon? Staying in same town? Different city? Nomadic life? :)

Oh and I totally want that cookbook. :-)

Oh my, that really IS a cute cookbook.

Good luck with the packing and cleaning, and we'll keep the house sale in our prayers!
