Unequally Yoked

I'm grateful to be married to a fellow believer, but I know there are so many Christians out there who are not. This is the best article I have ever read on being unequally yoked. Absolutely beautiful, well written and encouraging-in fact, I love Courtney's whole blog altogether!

Thriving In A Spiritually Mismatched Marriage

The ending is spectacular, and I think there are several principles we can use in marriage even if our husband is saved.

All aboard the Disneyland Railroad...

At the end of the day we went on the Astro Blasters....

We were having so much fun we didn't even take very many pictures! I'm so happy that I got to spend a day with my family at Disneyland. My littles had never gone before, it was an awesome experience.

Valentine's Present

For Valentine's Day, my hubby bought me new kitchen appliances. A fridge, and a new electric stove. I'm so grateful, because our last 2 stoves were awful-the first one kept making these big popping noises and then going out on us. The second one had one large burner that kept going out as well, and a very small oven with only one rack. It also burned almost everything. Even when I turned it down to low it kept our food happily boiling (burning). It was very frustrating. This...is my new stove. It's a Frigidaire Gallery series freestanding electric range with ceramic cooktop.

Please excuse the blurry pics, there was not much room in my kitchen to take a pic of the front of the stove. My kitchen is pretty small.

Our fridge has been making these terrible groaning noises, mostly at night. It sounds like it is dying a long, slow death. It also freezes just about everything in the fridge compartment. Making salad out of frozen veggies is pretty yucky. They thaw and get all wilted. Ack. William and I were seriously afraid the fridge would go out before we had the money to buy a new one. Thankfully, it didn't. Our new fridge is a Frigidaire, is black and has the same texture as the sides of the stove. They match! Of course, the way the stove is shoved into it's alcove, you can't really tell, but, I think it's kind of fun to have matching appliances. I didn't do it on purpose, they were both on sale, and happened to be going for a really good price.

Autumn wanted to be a in the picture. :0) It has water and ice features too! Yay! I waited so long for a fridge like this!

I think i'm going to have to repaint my kitchen. That yellow is seriously loud against the black appliances. I'm so happy to have a working fridge and a stove that makes cooking enjoyable again! 3 cheers to the best hubby in the world!
