so much to do

Pinned Image

hey, friends.
i am just bursting at the seams with ideas of fun projects and things to do,
but not enough time to do them all!
have you seen all of the overwhelming pinterest ideas?!?
what's a crafty, crazy busy mom to do?
whoa.
overload!
i'm certain that you all have the same problem at times.
right?!
please? :D
between school, piano lessons, 3 meals a day, and the daily routine of life, there just isn't enough time.
well, there is enough time, but just not always to do the frivolous,
not as important tasks, that i sometimes push to get done.

some of the things that are going to get done, however, are...
i have committed to writing a thank you  note to someone who has been a blessing to me each wednesday in the month of november.
truthfully, this should be each wednesday day #fortherestofmylife.
i am excited to think outside of the box and send my love and gratitude to those who have blessed me.
on paper.
written by hand.
the list of recipients is a mile million miles long.

i also want to participate in the happy day project next week.
i feel like this is an awesome way to bless others and get my children involved.
i'm really excited about it!

with all of this holiday hustle and gratefulness of heart, i don't want to get so caught up in it all that i forget to thank the One who gives me everything.
Jesus, my Redeemer and Savior, Who makes all of this possible.
without His shed blood on the cross,
i wouldn't have a whole lot to be thankful for.
He is my {healthy} Hope.
so, my first letter of gratitude goes to Him.


1.  thank you, Jesus, for willingly shedding your blood, dying, and rising again, for me, so that i can spend eternity with You.   i am so unworthy.


i will still be sending a hand written letter to someone this week,
 and i will tell you about that when i get it done.


with all of the cute projects and thanksgiving goodness floating around out there, 
i found something that we are definitely doing.
it's simple, adorable, and totally doable.

seriously now, how awesome is this tree?
the kids are going to have a blast!
eeep!
love it.

so, do you get overwhelmed like me?
i want to do so much, but being a wife and mom is my first calling, 
so i really have to step back and make sure my priorities are in alignment with His.
and that's hard sometimes, friends.
for me, anyway.
i sure like to push past the work{laundry, grading school work, etc} and get to the fun stuff!

speaking of fun stuff,
my new friend, abbie, has a fun little party that i am going to link up to this week.
the theme this week is my favorite color.
bet you can't guess what mine is right now.
yes, it changes.
:D

well, here are some fun things that have caught my eye recently....
