Pretty blogs and stuff

You all make your blogs so pretty.  Kris made mine pretty, but I have no idea how to change it for the seasons like you all do, or add cute designs.  I don’t make the time to figure it out either though, so I guess that’s my bad.

I have been reading a fabulous new book!  I hosted the Ladies Luncheon at my house a couple of weeks ago, and one of our lovely church ladies loaned it to me!  It is called Passionate Housewives: Desperate for God.  It’s co-written by Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald.  It is SO wonderful!  Every woman should read it!  I blogged about it a few entries ago, but never thought I would be able to get my hands on it so soon!  If you can get your hands on it, DO!  Ask for it for Christmas!  It is SO pertinent, and timely for me.

The first chapter paints a picture of a harried mom with 5 kids, who dreams of the "good" life.  I was really feeling like that just a day before it was loaned to me, and then my Scouts got sick and needed to stay home from church, so I stayed with them and spent most of the day reading this!  I usually take forever to finish a book, and I think I will have this done in three weeks, which is a major record for me!

Anyway, I just wanted to prompt you ladies to get ahold of this and read it.  I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Oh!  I just remembered this!  I got an email from Homeschooling Today, and if you subscribe, they send you this book for free!  It’s a $16 book, but you can get the magazine subscription for $21 (I think) and then get the book for free!  I was thinking about doing that, just so I get more for my money!  I want one of these books on my shelf to re-read regularly, and for my daughter to read when she is a teen.  Hey!  How about get one of these for your teen daughter for Christmas!  Then you can sneak read it, but you won’t be spending the money on YOU!  That’s how I am anyway….

Ok, dh just got home, so I am getting off now.  Ah…and he brought me a treat from town!  How sweet!!!  I love my dh!
