Welcome, friend! Relax & rest awhile, if you please. I'm an ordinary girl, a follower of Christ, mama to Gabriel, & wife to Evan. Here in this little space of the online world, I share all manner of bookish things, including full content reviews, writerly snippets, encouragement for everyday life, and a whole collection of names & their meanings.

A + A Friday!

Heheheh.  This has been in the drafts for a few weeks.  Or so.  -_-


  • When you unintentionally call a hoodie hood and "lid."  O_o
  • Attempting to say "no" whilst nodding, and "yes" whilst shaking your head. Just because.  Go on, try it.  xD
  • Using the trunk space of your Nissan Xterra to change from your work clothes to shopping clothes. . .  All the while wondering if someone's gonna see you. . .
  • When the heat & air guys come to your house to change your unit and you must ask one of them to move his truck so's you can get your car out of the garage.  They are very friendly, and you say, "Thank you, sir," to which he immediately replies, "Don't call me 'sir,' call me Spam." Because, evidently his name was Spam. . .
  • When a sister changes your phone's lock screen.

  • Working the registers at LifeWay and this older gentleman comes up and--jokingly--asks if you all sell any Star Wars Bibles.  O_O You promptly laugh.  Then wonder if he's actually serious.
  • I find Velveeta cheese intriguing.  It's cheese, and yet, not really cheese.
  • When going into a public restroom and the older woman behind you reminds you that your phone is in your back pocket. . . And proceeds to inform you of how her lady manager dropped hers in the toilet.  O_o  "Um, thank you, ma'am.  I'll be careful."

  • When your awesome fiancé brings you a Hardee's biscuit for an EARLY morning breakfast, just so he could see you before you head to an EARLY morning meeting. 
  • When a nice customer lady brags on you to a co-worker and says that you do good customer service.  Wow! Makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. ^ - ^
  • Meeting up with friends you haven't seen in a little while.
  • When your baby sisters turn 22 years old!!! AH!! :D
Just one of the drawings I've done.  :]  Instagram
  • Enjoying a lovely evening and a fancy, homemade dinner with your fiancé.
  • When you get two days off straight from work.
  • Only TEN MORE MONTHS till the Wedding Day!!

  1. Oh my goodness! That drawing is amazing! It boggles my little brain when I see stuff like that and know that someone actually created it. Good job. :) And a name like Spam? I feel the need to apologize to him even though I obviously had nothing to do with naming him...

  2. Lovely and laugh-inducing post, Sari, during a very busy time of year. ^-^
    Changing in the back of your car? You are brave! I confess I've been forced to do that a time or two.
    How nice that you overheard that compliment. It's always a happy thing to know that your customers are pleased with your work. You are so sweet and thoughtful, I am sure that you provide wonderful customer service!
    I hope you and Evan enjoy your first Christmas season together! ^-^ And don't forget to put your lid on, it's cold outside, teehee!

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.
