31 One Days Closer to A NEW HOME and a GIVEAWAY!!

Sandy, my darling Sandy, do you know Sandy?? She's over at God Speaks Today. Sandy sent me a email couple weeks ago that said essentially, "Hey, I'm starting this blog thing where you do something life-changing in May, wanna join me?"  My first thought was, "Get thee behind me, Sandy."

But, then I got to thinking about how I had recently decided that, since we can't move like I want to for a variety of reasons, I'm just gonna make my old house new. And how I have a tendency to let projects draaaaaaaaaaaag ouuuuuuuuuuuuuut. And how wonderful it would be to be under pressure from both Sandy, crazy disciplined taskmaster (just kidding, she is crazy disciplined, but she's a doll) and from YOU, crazy blog readers.

About how maybe if I had to report on here every day, I'd actually accomplish Just One Thing every day.

About how I could look at 'before and after' blogs till the cows come home, and about how I bet y'all could too. And then I got all tingly thinking I might even get to BE on one of those blogs, like this one, and how groovy cool that would be.

So when she emailed me because I hadn't replied and asked me if I was in, I took a deep breath and typed, okay.

I'm goin in.

She got me a cute lil button and ev-ery-thang. 


Because Sandy is all crazy organized she got a bunch of other ladies to join her, and they all got their posts up last night or this morning, and it's almost 10pm and I've already gotten emails and texts from Sandy asking if I'm okay because why else would my blog post not be up? Certainly not just because I'm unorganized and undisciplined!

(And then Osama got hisself killed and now it's almost midnight.)

This could be a long month. 


I'll get to that in a minute, but for now, here's the other ladies who are joining me:

31 Days Closer to Hearing God's Voice  
(Listen up!)
God speaks to us.  He wants us to sit at His feet and let His Words wash over us.  But sometimes, a whole lotta junk gets in the way of us actually hearing what He has to say.  Over the next 31 days, we are going to practice getting our baggage out of the ways so that our heart is prepared to listen to what He has to say.
31 Days Closer to Your Kids
(I'm pretty psyched about this one)
Maintaining a relationship with our kids is not always automatic, and just because they live under our roof doesn’t mean we’re always connecting with them. Over the next 31 days, I’ll share some practical tips to help you grow closer to your kids.

(You'll recognize her from my sidebar. Love me some Lisa.)
31 Days Closer to the Life You Always Wanted
Since cancer threatened to take the life I had, I decided that any days I lived beyond cancer would be dedicated to creating the life I want to live. If you've ever thought: One day I will ... scrapbook, organize my pantry, create cute looks on a lean budget, adopt a baby from Ethiopia, look toned on the beach or read my Bible all the way from Genesis to Revelation or any other big or little someday thought, this series is for you.
31 Days Closer to A Cuter You
(I don't need this one, since I could not get any cuter.) (Bahahaha)
Have you had that moment yet? You know the one where you unexpectedly catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror? Yeah…THAT one. If you grimaced instead of grinned, join me for the next 31 days for 31 tips and tricks to tweak your look and come closer to a cuter you!

31 Days Closer to Health, Wellness and Bathing Suit Season
(you don't need this one, do you? Me neither.) (Bahahahahaha)
It’s the little things.  All the little things you do in a day either contribute to your health …or not.  Whether your goal is to feel better, drop a few pounds or just strut more confidently in your bathing suit, we’ll cover all the little things you can do to get closer to your goal by June 1st!

Cool stuff, no??
