Tis the Season

To give.

Local food banks have empty shelves. In our part of the country, the boy scouts are having an emergency food drive to help provide food for the banks. With the economy in a slight slump, a lot of families are relying on the food banks to feed their family. And if the shelves are empty? There are kids who aren't eating. I imagine everyone could at least donate 1 can of tuna, or a package of ramen noodles. They're also in need of hygiene items, like shampoo and toothpaste. Every little bit helps someone in need. Count your blessings that you're in the postion to give, and not in the postion to recieve, then give with a big heart.

Pack a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child. What a wonderful way to teach children to think of others and serve them in this season of normal greed. And for not much, you can give a child a Christmas they wouldn't have otherwise.

There's lot you can do to help those in need. These are two causes that have touched my heart lately, and I thought them important enough to share with you all. For me, I'm lucky enough to have all that I have (which isn't much) but others aren't so lucky, and I feel the need to help them out. I hope you all can find that place in your heart that will give a little bit this season!

Time for a change

Sometimes I need a change. Like this past week.

I don't know what it is about this week, but I needed a change.

I went and bought this new comforter. We've actually never had a comforter. We have piles of blankets we kept on the bed. I've wanted to get a comforter since we got married, but it just hasn't happened. Until Target put these on clearance, and we both agreed that they would be perfect in our room.

That's probably the biggest problem we have. Agreeing on something when it comes to decor/furnishings. We have similar tastes, but they're different enough that it can take quite some time to find something we both like.

Then I chopped off 10 inches of my hair and donated it to science.

and ok, it wasn't science, it was Locks of Love. Science makes it sound cooler though.

Sometimes a girl just needs some change in her life!!
