I know I've mentioned before that I've failed a few times at reading the Bible in a year. For the last few years in a row I have attempted to do it and usually there comes a time...either summer time or a super busy time for PaperDoll Designs..that I get off track. I am determined to complete it this time around. I feel super convicted to do this and I am determined not to just read it through but to really soak it in. I'm using the YouVersion app...chronological Bible in a Year and I've been loving it so far and have actually gotten a little ahead of schedule. I know at some point though, I'm going to have one of those days or one of those weeks and be really tempted to skip a day here or there OR give up all together. That's where you come in.
I've realized recently that I need accountability with this sort of thing...big time. So I'm looking for some of you to join me and hold me to it. Since I'm obsessed a little with Instagram, I'm thinking an Instagram hashtag is the way to go. If you'd like to join me in reading the Bible in a year or just commit to a daily devotional for the next year, I'd love for you to share pictures as you go and use hashtag #thywordinayear.
I think it will be a fun and encouraging way to hold each other accountable. I'd also love to send the first 5 people that commit to do this with me a "Thy Word" bookmark shown above. Just leave a comment if you are in and then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address (no international shipping, please) and I'll send the bookmark your way. I'm excited about this! Please join me!
We finally have some beautiful grilling weather here in Oklahoma!!
MONDAY: Breakfast for Dinner
scrambled eggs, biscuits, bacon, the works...
TUESDAY: Taco Salad
The younger littles are finally coming around to our Mexican nights...yay!
WEDNESDAY: Crescent Chicken
This is probably my kids favorite meal. Got it from my favorite blog.
THURSDAY: Pasta Bake
I'm still all about Pizza.
SATURDAY: Broccoli Cheddar Soup
This is my favorite soup...tastes so much like Panera's broccoli cheddar. It's even better as left overs so I like to make a big batch. This one didn't happen this past Saturday so it's back on the list for this week.
That's what I'm making this week! I'd love to hear what you are having!! I'm always looking for new dinner ideas!
Christmas orders are coming in!!! Every year, I am so surprised by how early the Christmas shopping starts! I LOVE IT!! I know it's still early but make sure you plan ahead. It gets crazy busy the closer it gets. Start planning now if you know you want some of the items that take a bit longer like blankets, pillowcases, puzzles, coin purses, flip flops, etc.
Although I'm positive that several of my friends now think I'm crazy, I'm still having fun with the Instagram challenge (#planneraddictsphotochallenge1) that I'm participating in. I seriously had no idea how many people shared my planner/list/cute calendar obsession. I'm getting a lot of organizing inspiration over on my Instagram feed. Here's an update on my challenge posts in case you care and aren't following on Instagram...
Day 10: Lists...can't live without my To Do list in my work planner
Day 11: Sections...again this is my work planner. Can't live without it.
Day 12: Month at a Glance...I don't really use the Month pages but they still have to look pretty.
Day 13: Selfie with Planner...I'm not into selfies. Just can't do it.
Day 14: Stuffed Full...not really. I'm still working on building the perfect planner so I just have September in here right now.
Day 15: Leaning Tower of Planners...I've started saving them...they are like journals.
Day 16: Supplies...a few of my must haves.
There you go. I may be crazy but I'm organized (on paper.)
