Mary Kay

My husband says that I should do a blog post about Mary Kay. (He just realized that this is what I am working on. I'll quote him: "Wow! You're such an obedient wife sometimes!" Ha!)

Many of you might already know that I casually sell Mary Kay products. AND, I give a 25% discount to people that I like. ;)

I'll be putting in an order at the end of this month. Let me know if you'd like anything! For new items, check out or ask me for a catalog.

Have a very Merry Christmas!

Kid Not Included

Need a dining room table? Be the first to contact us in response to this blog post and this beautiful, well-used table is yours. This rare collectible was formerly owned by certain high-class individuals (aka Rodney & Stacy Mitchell). Kid and delivery not included.

Each time we move, we seem to be transporting more and more stuff. This time (with considerable help from friends) we filled the largest truck available from U-Haul. So I guess next time we'll be making multiple trips? Unless, of course, we manage to find the time to get rid of some of our stuff.

Some of it is useful stuff that we're just not putting to good use. The rest is probably junk that we just haven't had a chance to get rid of. (I hate throwing things away--I'd much rather give them to someone who will find a good use for them.)

All of this to say, this blog needs some more giveways. (It's been too long since the last one!) Here are a few good resources I ran across while unpacking that I've been sitting on too long. They're free to a good home. If you want to take them to pass on to a friend as part of a Christmas gift, I have no problem with that. I just don't want them sitting on my shelf collecting more dust when someone else could be benefiting from them.

The Bible-Driven Church (John MacArthur, MP3 Audio CD)

Open Their Eyes: Doing What Only God Can Do (John Piper, DVD)

Quest for Joy: Six Biblical Truths (John Piper, Audio CD)

The Pleasures of God (John Piper, MP3 Audio CD)

One item per person, but feel free to claim as many as you want once this blog post is over a week old. Folks who live outside the Sacramento area may be asked to cover shipping costs.

Minority Rules...

It's a boy!

What do you think?

My ultrasound appointment was moved from this morning to this afternoon, so I thought I'd put up the question to all of you and give you a few hours to guess... (Of course David says I should have put this question up a long time ago to optimize responses, but oh well...=). So, at this point in our born children, we're half and half -- 2 boys and 2 girls. What do you think this one is? Get your guesses in! I'd put up some kind of cool poll ticker on the blog, but I don't know how to do that... So you'll just have to leave your guesses in the comment section!
