Week 7.

Well, we still have not heard yet from Anderson University...we are on pins and needles around here!

I am currently sitting in a VERY quiet house......Steve is at a men's retreat, Jason had to be at work at 5:30 am and Jared is still asleep.  I am not one who usually likes the quiet, but today I am drinking it in.  Feels like my life has been very loud lately.

Here's my week.
 On, the way back home from Indiana today.  We stopped to get the missed picture of Jared in front of the school sign. I don't think this is their main sign, but seeing as we had 11 hours ahead of us, we used the first one we saw!  Doesn't he look grown up?!  That's my baby.  waaaahhhhhhhhh.

 Today was a great day for our first snow because it allowed Jared and me to have a recovery day. What you see is about all we got.
dusting of snow in south = no school = all grocery stores out of basics 2 days ago.

 I made red velvet cake balls for my family for Valentine's Day.
wow, were they yummy!!!

 Rosemary Potato Soup tonight.  Recipe from Rebekah.  So, so good.
And you can't have soup without some good bread!

 Tonight I had a Norwex party.  You might recognize this lovely's Lori!
If you don't know about Norwex should.  They are simply amazing.  Google it and find a distributor near you......your welcome.

This took my breath away today.
That is my BABY'S name.
How is that possible?

Spent this morning finishing up my friend's laundry.  She had reconstructive surgery a few weeks ago from her cancer and last week developed a staph infection from an abscessed tooth.  She has had a rough time and is on IV antibiotics in her home.  If you think of it, please pray for a quick recovery for my friend, Ann.

Well, that's my week.  I have a very exciting week ahead of me.  I haven't been able to really think about it until this weekend (so I could keep focused!), but I leave for my yearly girls weekend!!!  More about that next time!

Haven't finished my post yet but had to read yours ASAP to see if there was any news from AU, have been watching all week and Mike asked today. As I suspected, it doesn't happen that quickly :(
Glad you got your photo by the AU sigh :)
All your food always looks delectable. i must find that bread recipe. Never heard of cake balls.
We just got back from an amazing concert by the Marion Philharmonic performed at Taylor. Another reminder of Jared and you all. You come to mind often. We were so blessed.
Have a wonderful girlfriends week.
Will pray for Ann.

I'm waiting to hear from grad schools right now, and it's excruciating! I hope Jared gets good news soon!

The snow looks lovely. We had some too, but it didn't close anything down, so I'm a little jealous!

Those cake balls look so good. And what a sweet idea for Valentine's Day. I'm so glad you liked the soup!


Waiting for those acceptance letters is mind boggling. I hope you hear wonderful news soon. The cake balls look so yummy. You should try the red velvet whoppie pies from pinterest too. The soup and bread looked wonderful too.

Cathy said...

Hope Jared hears soon. The cake balls and bread look wonderful. Hope you have a great time on your trip.

The Semi-Domesticated Mama said...

Snow. You have snow. I'm a little jealous. We haven't had any days cold enough for it to even think about snowing this winter. Thanks for hosting!

Bekah said...

I saw from your son's letter that you are in Little Rock- that's my mom's hometown! She had very fond memories of growing up there.

Lisa said...

For some reason I thought it was Jared's decision to make, not that you were waiting to hear from them.

Have fun on your girls always looks like SO much fun!

skoots1mom said...

we're waiting to hear from U/A's Nurshing School...she was .1% away from making it directly in with her grades, can you believe that...point 1...too close if you ask me, hahahah.
anyway, hope you hear positively soon.
i'm jealous about your girls' weekend...i haven't been able to do that recently, and I miss the girls.
i want S**W, too!!

StephieAnne said...

Yes, Jared looks does this happen?!

That snow...ha ha! I think that's even worse than us. But, hey, it's all about the ice layer underneath the dusting - that's the key to school closure! Around here, however, we do NOT sell out of products in grocery stores. =)

I wrote it as a comment on my blog, but OF COURSE, you are free to copy anything, ANY TIME from my blog - and never again need to ask.

(And yes, HUGELY powerful, I read the story to the family - it's gonna stick with me for a long time...)

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

Skoots and made those cake ball for her daughters open house...they were a big hit!

yea the selective service thing is a weird realization...momma's see our babies the military see able bodies if needed.....


Rebecca Jo said...

Hey - are you by Anderson, Indiana? We're bring our youth kids up in April for the Believe Conference :)

He & Me + 3 said...

I hope that you hear from the University soon. Yum to the cake balls and the soup. They look so good. I will totally have to google Norwex. Thanks in advance :)

I made cake balls for Valentine's day too! How yummy! I haven't tried REd Velvet, but want to. Hope you hear from Anderson soon...not fun to wait {i hate waiting!} Not sure I would like the soup but that bread looks DELISH! Hope you have a great week!

Lori Davidson said...

That look on my face is cracking me up. haha

Poor Ann!! I hope she's better by now. Bless her heart. You are so sweet to help her out. I do so miss her.
