Sunday Fun Day

Is it wrong to call it a Sunday fun day if there is no booze involved? I guess that just goes to show how getting old will shift your mindset.

I had brunch with one of my best friends of many many years yesterday morning. It's like an act of congress to get together with girlfriends these days so I wanted to make a strong effort in relishing every moment.

 As I was getting dressed, I noticed Hudson watching me the way a little girl watches her momma get ready for a fancy event. I swear this dog appreciates style more than most people do. 

I decided to change things up a bit and whip out the old leggings (no worries they're really thick and are actually pants) and went for the all black look. Somewhere along the way, I looked in the mirror and realized I looked like the grim reaper, so I added in a few colorful accessories including a lightweight paisley scarf and a bright berry colored lip stain. 
The brunch was delicious and left me feeling crafty for some strange reason. Maybe it was the hipster scarf? Who knows. 

I've had a project in mid of several weeks, just haven't actually gotten around to it. After a good 30 minutes in Michaels, I came home with a few goodies. 

After I set everything up, I put on some Mumford at a level that will most likely get me a noise complaint notice. I started with my main project which took much more time than I had anticipated.

Now this may look easy but I can assure you it took a bit of time. There was a lot of measuring, re-doing the font and spacing over and over and layering several coats of gold paint before this sucker was done.

Yeh it's random, but I promise there's a story behind this.  A month or so ago, I went a bit overboard and decided to clean out the white frame inventory at ikea. With dreams of a gallery wall like the Petersik's, I may have bought a lot of frames that I have nothing to put in. They're all scattered around, all empty. So I really stared to think about what I wanted to put in them. This isn't  as easy as you would think. I knew I wanted something simple. And I knew I wanted something inspirational. So I started combing my Pinterest boards but everything was was too long or came from a website full of inspirational quotes. So after writing out what seemed to be 300 short phrases, I gave up. And then shortly after that, one of my absolute favorite songs came on. I knew it right then and there that I wanted a visual reminder of this in my house for everyone to see.

I'm rather fortunate that my church is home to the most incredible Christian artists (Chris Tomlin, David Crowder, Kristian Stanfill,  Christy Nockels) with occasional surprise visits from Matt Redman as well. Any given Sunday, one of them will lead worship, of not all of them. It is incredible to say the least. 

10,000 Reasons
Matt Redman

Bless the Lord, O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name

The sun comes up, it's a new day dawning
It's time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

You're rich in love, and You're slow to anger
Your name is great, and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find

And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore
