I've Been Tagged

I almost forgot! Kundhi Creative tagged me and here's the rules(taken from J's blog):
1. Once you’ve been tagged, you have to write a blog with ten weird, random things, facts, or habits about yourself.
2. At the end, you choose five people to be tagged, listing their names and why you chose them to be tagged.
3. Don’t forget to leave them a comment “You’re It!” and to read your blog.
4. You can’t tag the person who tagged you. Since you can’t tag me back, let me know when you’ve posted your blog so I can see your answers.

I don't find these things weird, but "Sarah-normal" (haha, para-normal, get it? Ok, getting on with it):
  • I could stay in my pajamas day, night, and after-shower. They are more comfortable to me than my favorite pair of jeans! However, I don't think Valentine's heart pants go with a checked sweatshirt. Yikes.
  • I check my email probably 20 times a day. Or more.
  • I do not wash my hands 20 times a day.
  • I could easily live off of these groceries: eggs, milk, cheese, almonds, lettuce, potatoes (including potato chips).
  • I LOVE doing surveys.
  • I cut my husband's hair, floss his teeth, and even clip his fingernails. I like my husband. I do not like his toenails.
  • The first thing I notice on men and women are their teeth. Are they clean, white, and straight? Good. Brown, Crooked, and lettuce stuck in them? Bad. I may never talk to you again.
  • I own almost every single Disney movie (most on DVD) except The Jungle Book (still waiting for it, my birthday is in a few weeks)--I couldn't wait to have children to have them as my excuse.
  • I owned a pet rabbit when I was in elementary school. My mom got him for me as a 'replacement' as a dog. Complete with leash (I kid you not) so I could "Walk him around the neighborhood". His name was Pepsi, and the little turd hated me...and being walked.
  • My husband says I have perfect feet. This must mean out of proportion (they are incredibly small, however clean, I must say).

You're It: People who I have chosen are people who have blogs, but do not blog often enough for me--I want to know more-- Renee W., Britny N., Emily B., Crystal D., and Susie C. (okay, I know Susie's everyday life well, but you'll do this--you're in the middle of nowhere, Africa, right? you have time!)

How To: DIY Sand/Water Table

How To: Build A Sand/Water Table for Under $30!
Sorry this took me so long to blog, but I had to have a tool list and full instructions before I could do so.
A little history on my love for the sand/water table. I love the idea behind tools for tiny hands, i.e. the Montessori Method, and like to have Lukka 'figure things out for himself', even when he is playing. I try to have the most simple and basic toys available for 3 reasons: a) simple toys generally have less parts, which means less of a hassle for me
b) simple toys inspire way more creativity and imagination than do 'exact replica' toys
c) they are much more aesthetically pleasing to look at, therefore, not making every nook and cranny of our house an eyesore!
I know the last reason is just for me, but it's true. Plastic things don't generally last 1/2 as long as wooden or fabric toys, and they are unattractive. For this reason, I started to look for a wooden sand/water table as opposed to a plastic one …

The Rule of Threes

Costco aftermath
This is what my kitchen looks like for at least an hour after a Costco trip. I haul in everything after an exhausting journey through the busiest store (seemingly) in this country and I just can't do a dang thing more. For an hour. While I get a breather. And eat some obligatory reward chocolate. Eventually I'll get to those piles and everything will be put in it's proper place, but usually it stays like this for that necessary hour. 
                                                                          *** I don't think I'm alone in sensing that our culture has gone hog-wild with unrealistic expectations in just about every department, and I want to tell my friends, and anyone else who will listen, that we can only do so much in a day.  My husband once told me a friend of his pondered the busy-ness of our modern lives and said something to the effect of, "God gives us just enough time in the day to do only the things we need to do." …

Snapshot Story of Malibu, Lake Louise Inlet, British Columbia

top photo: The Blainiacs; self-titled, our group from bible study

There are too many words to share everything about Malibu, so I'm going to share a few pictures, and some words in this post. Malibu is a Young Life camp that is it's own little village in the middle of nowhere, British Columbia, or at least it feels that way--very isolated. It's right at the top of Lake Louise Inlet (right before Lake Louise) but really, there is nothing out there. It is what a leader called "The Thin Place"; the place right in the middle of heaven and earth. It's beautiful, welcoming, joyful, and raw, pristine.

This lodge is where "Club" happens. This is where the large group of the 220+ women who were present for Women's Weekend  would get together twice daily for skits, singing, and hearing speakers before breaking out into small group time. The Women's Weekend follows the Young Life way in how they structure the retreat. Everything we did resembled what t…
