Waiting on God

I saw this great post on Waiting on God over at Crystal's blog. I really needed this reminder as we are in the midst of waiting and deciding so many things. We want things to work out our way, but how many times has God shown us His amazing goodness, something so much better than we could have planned ourselves. He is God, and our own limited views most often are short-sighted. It's good to remember His faithfulness.

A Prayer for the FedEx Man

O Lord,

Please hasten the truck that carrieth the precious box, for which I have been waiting an eternity. I thinketh I can no longer bear the atrocity of this behemoth thou calleth the PC. Each page loadeth at the pace of the hard shelled tortoise. My patience waneth with the broken enter key and unbearably slow reconnection to the network of wireless. How I miss mine Macbook. Please grant the FedEx man with unhindered travel and clear skies that he may quickly bring me my dear LCD.

Thy humble Apple fan,
Mandy

I'm a Carrot Cake Girl.

This is a cute little meme I got from a friend today. It's random but fun.

If all of the eight desserts listed below were sitting in front of you,
which would you choose (sorry, you can only pick one)! Trust me...this is
very accurate Pick your dessert, and then look to see what psychiatrists
think about you.

REMEMBER - No Cheating. Make your choice before you check the meaning.



Here are your choices:

1. Angel Food Cake

2. Brownies

3. Lemon Meringue Pie

4. Vanilla Cake With Chocolate Icing

5. Strawberry Short Cake

6. Chocolate Cake With Chocolate Icing

7. Ice Cream

8. Carrot Cake

No, you can't change your mind once you scroll down, so think carefully
about what your choice will be.





OK - Now that you've made your choice, this is what the

researchers say about you... SCROLL DOWN---No Cheating






1. ANGEL FOOD CAKE -- Sweet, loving, cuddly. You love all warm and fuzzy
items. A little nutty at times. Sometimes you need an ice cream cone at
the end of the day Others perceive you as being childlike and immature at
times.

2. BROWNIES -- You are adventurous, love new ideas, and are a champion of
underdogs and a slayer of dragons. When tempers flare up you whip out your
saber. You are always the oddball with a unique sense of humor and
direction. You tend to be very loyal.

3. LEMON MERINGUE -- Smooth & articulate with your hands, you are
an excellent caregiver and a good teacher. But don't try to walk and chew
gum at the same time. A bit of a diva at times, you set your own style
because you do your own thing. You shine when it comes to helping others
and have many friends.

4. VANILLA CAKE WITH CHOCOLATE ICING -- Fun-loving, sassy, humorous, not
very grounded in life; very indecisive and lacking motivation. Everyone
enjoys being around you, but you are a practical joker. Others should be
cautious in making you mad. However, you are a friend for life.

5. STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE -- Romantic, warm, loving. You care about other
people, can be counted on in a pinch and expect the same in return.
Intuitively keen. You can be very emotional at times but a true person in
every way. You like to do things for yourself and help others learn about
themselves.

6. CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH CHOCOLATE ICING -- Always ready to give and
receive. Very creative, adventurous, ambitious, and passionate. You can
appear to have a cold exterior but
are warm on the inside. Not afraid to take chances. Will not settle for
anything average in life. Love to laugh.

7. ICE CREAM -- You like sports, whether it is baseball, football,
basketball, or soccer. If you could, you would like to participate, but
you enjoy watching sports. You don't like to give up the remote control.
You tend to be self-centered and high maintenance.

8. CARROT CAKE -- You are a very fun loving person, who likes to laugh.
You are fun to be with. People like to hang out with you. You are a very
warm hearted person and a little quirky at times. You have many loyal
friends. You were meant to lead and teach others. A wonderful role model.

These Shoes Were Made for Walking...

We bought Isabella a pair of everyday walking shoes. I remember seeing these adorable little girl shoes last year and imagining having a baby girl to put them on. So of course we had to get some this year! At first she wasn't sure what to do with them but she got excited after a little while and started kicking her feet and laughing.

In other news, Isabella started walking this week! She will be one on the 27th. The girl has some really good motor skills. She can also put a wand back into the lip gloss container over and over again. She is very coordinated! I can't believe my little baby is already becoming a toddler.

I joined PaperBackSwap. :)

I've finally joined PaperBackSwap. I can't believe I've waited for so long! We have a bookshelf of books I haven't picked up in years. I just signed up and added 10 books to my list and got 2 credits for free books!

Within the hour someone requested a book of mine, so I will soon print the label, affix the postage, and stick it in my mailbox! As soon as they receive it, I get a free credit for any book I want on the site.

I used one of my free book credits to get a beginner's Spanish guide for my husband. It says it should be in the mail in a couple of days! And, if you use the link or banner on my website to sign up, I get a free book credit! :) So exciting.
