I love our sweet little tree in our dear tiny apartment. The LED lights look blue in all the pics I took, but they are, in fact, very white. :-)

What a good week! Had some ups and downs, but still such a blessed week!!
Sunday morning it rained... and the trees looked SO cool through our car's windshield.

Need a yummy and easy chicken recipe??? I've got one for you that my family has done for years! It is SO easy and fun to make!
And it's called Crumby Chicken... how great is that?!
And, believe me, the name describes what it looks like, not how it tastes!

LOTS of pictures today from my AMAZING trip to South Dakota! Andrew and I drove out with my friend, Hannah, to stay with friends, Jake and Mikayla (and their new baby, Lydia!), for the week of Thanksgiving. What a fun time!

The first snow has come and is almost gone.
My husband and I were staying with my younger siblings while my parents were on a weekend trip. My youngest sister was snuggled up in bed with me when eight-year-old Samantha came into the bedroom to wake us up.
"There's snow outside, Rachel!"
Bekah's eyes flew open and I knew it was time to get up.

"I now pronounce you man and wife," the pastor and father said, a smile on his face. Then he turned to look at the groom, "Andrew, you may now kiss my daughter."
To the surprise of all, the young couple turned away from each other as the maid of honor and the best man each squirted a few sprays of breath freshener into the bride and groom's mouths. Laughter rippled through the guests.

These pictures weren't taken this week, but I know that sharing them is long overdue!
My sister, Jessica, is wrapping up highschool this year and I asked her if she wanted to do one huge photo-shoot with a couple different outfits OR multiple shoots during different seasons throughout her senior year. She opted for the latter (my preference, YAY!). So, here are my favorites from our first photo-shoot of Jessica's senior year!

I LOVE sweatshirts. When the weather turns cold I am ALL about staying warm!
I also LOVE cuteness. When the temperature drops I am ALL about staying warm AND cute.
So... I would like to share FOUR ideas for restyling a sweatshirt so you can be cute and warm at the same time these autumn and winter months!!! These are all VERY easy. I'm only capable of the basics when it comes to sewing; if I can do this, so can you!

Quite unintentionally, both of my outfits have a color theme of blue and grey this week!
And, as a special treat, there is also one more outfit worn by my lovely sister, Natalie.
Hope you enjoy!

What a fun week! Busy at times... crazy at times... but really good!
Samantha, Natalie, Jessica, and Josh with two of our friends who took part in a reenactment last weekend. The whole festival was great; very crowded and so many things to see!

This week's outfit has a bundle of pictures to go with it!
My sister, Jessica, took so many shots that turned out so nicely that I couldn't get it down to the usual three or four. :-) She did such a good job of capturing the mood and style of this outfit that I had to share!

This week's group of pictures covers a range that made it quite impossible for me to come up with a title to tie it all together!
Hopefully the diversity will be enjoyable!

I'm learning so much about life...
that it is not always perfect hair and makeup, a dreamy look in the eyes, the perfect kiss, mouth-watering food, hot coffee, and pleasant and profound words...
that sometimes it is frizzy bedhead and worry lines, weary eyes, missed moments, not knowing what to make for dinner, the coffee getting cold again, and nothing much to say...

Last weekend my dear friend, Caitlin, was joined in marriage to her true love, Zach.
I wasn't able to sit terribly close to them, but I did want to share some of the pictures I took at their lovely wedding.

this is the title of the prayer my little black book flips open too.
This book has been an amazing source for me these past six months or so. Now it hits me hard with the first word I read.

My little sis
has officially freaked me out by turning
My mind is whirling, thinking,
"Hey, wait a sec??? Didn't I just turn seventeen?".
Apparently, without my awareness or permission,
the years have continued to fly by and now my
sweet, adorable, loving, crazy, awesome
sister, Jessie, is having a birthday.
