Project Life: Week 6 + a few other things.

Sunday, February 6
It is official. I am now a Gleek. I saw a marathon on the Oxygen channel and I was hooked. I love the character of  Emma Pilsbury!  She has the best clothes.

Monday, February 7
 This is one reason why I have been feeling so poorly. The weather has been crazy here. Hot and Cold. Rainy and Dry. Snowy and Sunny. My body doesn't know what to do with itself! 

Tuesday, February 8
These are the movies that I watched during the beginning of February. I watched one romantic movie a day until Valentine's Day. My favorites are Must Love Dogs and Return to Me. Do you have a favorite romantic movie?

Wednesday, February 9
It started snowing! We got about 2 inches. People still went to work the next day and we had electricity...maybe Alabama is moving up in the world! ha! 

Thursday February 10
Can you see her little eyes peeking out at me? I love my little Holly. This is her, "Please, don't bother me right now", face!

Friday, February 11
I was really blue and Mom said I needed to get out of the house for a little while. We were going to TJ Maxx. I love that store!

Saturday, February 12
Holly was mad at me for something. (I can't remember what.) She didn't want to be close to me. She is pouting in my chair. Silly dog!

I am linking up at The Mom Creative today.

There are a couple of more things that I am going to include in today's post.

The first being that my friend Rachel nominated me for a blogger award last week. How sweet was that? She really is one of the sweetest people ever! You must go visit her blog!

Now, I need to thank the person who nominated me. Rachel, thanks so much for the award! You are so encouraging and wise. Your love for God and His word really is so powerful. Because of you, I learned about the Siesta Scripture Memory Team! I have always wanted to memorize scripture but I would quickly loose motivation. Being accountable has made such a difference. (And I also learned about baking potatoes in a crock pot from you! Who knew?!)

Now, I have to tell you 7 random things about myself.
  •  I feel the (obsessive) need to eat small, individual things (like candy or cookies) in multiples of 3 or 5. 
  • From about age 4 to age 6, I intentionally spelled my name wrong because I liked  the letter A better than the letter E and therefore, I thought the letter A should come first in my name. So, my name was Haether Thomas for about 2 years. No red marker or sad face was going to convince me that E was anything other than a second-rate letter!
  • I think the library is the happiest place on earth.
  • I love shoes!
  • I love pretty pajamas! My favorites are by Carole Hochman and Karen Neuburger. And thanks to TJ Maxx, I can now afford them!
  • I am Psychology major at the University of AL. My hope is to get my Masters and then work with children with chronic or terminal illnesses. My minor is in Judaic Studies. (In case you were wondering!)
  •  My favorite snack is a Triscut cracker with a slice of cheddar cheese and little bread & butter pickle on top.
And without further ado, here are the lovely ladies that I think deserve
The Stylish Blogger Award as well! 

1. Kelli's blog is In My Life. She is a new blog friend. We became friends though our weekly Project Life posts. She is seriously so sweet and so funny! She has a really amazing scrapbooking room. I am so envious! ha! She also journals and creates beautiful watercolors during her quiet time. She is just the neatest person!

2. Rachel is my oldest friend. (Honestly, I have known her since I was a baby.) We went to church together as children and then our families changed churches. We lost touch but we ran into each other in Target a couple of years ago and now we keep in touch through Facebook and our blogs. She is pregnant with her first child, a boy that she and her husband are naming Barrett. I was supposed to go to her baby tea on Sunday but (shockingly!) I was too sick to go. I am hoping she posts some photos so I can see what I missed!

3. Kat has a really beautiful blog. It is called Secrets of a Butterfly and it is as dreamy as it sounds. We "met" a year or so ago, after she posted about a really great Etsy shop that I was a fan of. She too has a chronic illness and she is so encouraging and inspirational.

And finally, today is the 15th which means it is time to choose my 4th bible verse for Siesta Memory Team. My verse is Job 16:19-21
Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high. My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God; on behalf of a man he pleads with God as a man pleads for his friend.

I hope you all have a great Tuesday and if you read all that...you are a super friend! ha!

I thought I was only person on earth who absolutely loved the movie, "Must Love Dogs" -- it's so good, isn't it?!?

And I love your verse! I'm going to have to jot that one down...it's a good one!

The Pilston's said...

Thanks for the nomination! I feel so honored. I missed you terribly at the shower, but I totally understand. I am trying to get pictures uploaded so I can share the day with everyone. We will get together, I promise!

The first time I read this post, I must have skipped over the fact that you're doing the Siesta Scripture Memory. Me too! I've never really been motivated to memorize scripture until now. It's been so useful already in my life!

Don't you love Emma Pillsbury's outfits?! Ahh out of a crew catalogue or something.

And Return to Me is husband and I's favorite! Such a good one!
