A great read for wives

Had to take some time out from teaching my 4 year old her letters to post about a GREAT article I read this morning. I am constantly soaking up as much as I can about how to be a better wife to my husband. I fail so often in this area but know that it is so important that I continue to try. I also feel that I cannot be the mother to my children that the Lord desires for me to be if I am not first and foremost being the right kind of wife. It's all interconnected in my book. ;) And it couldn't have come at a better time for me as the things mentioned are the very things that the Lord has been dealing with me about.

Anyway, being a DIY type of gal, this article caught my attention and I'm so glad I took the time to sit down and read it. The Time-Warp Wife has some great tools for us to improve in our role as daughters of the Kind and wives to our husbands. It doesn't matter if you are newly married or have been married for years, I believe that the truths written in the article will be a blessing and a challenge for your role as a wife. Please take the time to sit down and go read it. You will be glad you did!

Rainy Day...It's Okay, We Have SLIME!

So we woke up to pouring rain this morning. Gray skies, wet soggy yards and cold temps usually leadsto indoor chaos...but not today.

While perusing Facebook very quickly this morning I came across a post a friend of mine over at It's Just Laine had up. She is an amazing woman who dabbles in all sorts of creative things...and the results are usually pretty great. 

Anyway, she had posted a few ideas for rainy day fun. You can find that post here. I was intrigued by the coolness and simplicity of the Gook. So, five minutes later we were doing this.

Let me tell you this stuff is so cool!!! It's hard at first but turns to slime in your hands. The 4 year old is LOVING it! She's been occupied for about 30 minutes straight now. And for her that's a BIG deal! 

So if you're interested in stirring up some quick fun head on over to It's Just Laine and create your own slime. You most likely have all you need in your pantry anyway (cornstarch, water and food color) and with the bad weather encompassing most of the US today I'm sure some of you could use some distraction! :) to find something for this cutie!
