"Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon."

Hello, all!  

No A+A post today--my apologies--but I've decided to take them every round-about Friday, simply meaning every two weeks.  Hope you're not too disappointed. . . *winks*

So, the purpose of this post is to update you.  Briefly.  Again.

That seems to be all I ever do on here. . . Anywho!  First things first.

I've found my wedding gown!!!!!
So sorry, but no photos!  Can't risk HIM seeing. . .  Ahaha! But it's beautiful and so very much me.
On that same note, today marks six months to the day of my wedding!  Wow.  I can hardly believe it.  I remember when it was a whole year before, and looking back now, it seems to have flown by.  We're currently keeping busy working on Operation Overland (our duplex property) as much as possible, I'm playing around with invitation designs, and we're slowly getting our preparations together.

Secondly, I hope to have some book reviews for you soon.  The first of which will be Mary Weber's Siren's Song.  And maybe a few more Rated, Not Reviewed posts, as well.  

And lastly, I've been procrastinating.  On many things.  I'm trying to get my applications and resumes to a couple banks in town and pushing off and pushing off working on items for my shop, that is STILL not up and running.  New goal: Open Penmaiden's Wordshoppe by the end of this month, with at least five items minimum.

With all that said, I could so use your prayers right now.  That includes prayers for the wedding, of course, but also for a new job that's closer home and with better hours, and motivation to get this shop running.  It's really what I want to do and I enjoy.  Thank you in advance, dearies!  You're the best. 
Well, enough said.  I gotta go!

Have a lovely weekend!!


P.S.  The quote-title is completely random and has nothing to do with this post. . .  I just liked it.  xD


  1. Hurray on finding your wedding dress! So exciting!

    Definitely praying for you, girlie. :) Job-hunting can be rather exhausting. Hope things go well!

  2. YOU HAVE A WEDDING GOOOOOWN! *twirls* So exciting!!! :D :D :D

    Don't you worry about just giving us brief updates here and there. I'm sure we all understand your busyness right now!

    I'm certainly praying for you all. God's got it all under control! ^_^


To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
