Getting ready for Baby: A high chair and a dresser

So, here we are.  It is August.  Cooper is due this month.  We’ve been really busy this summer with camps, baby showers, conferences, reunions with friends and family, and trying to get things ready around our home for the arrival of our little guy. So Kelly and I make a great pair in a lot … Continue reading

A list …

Saw this on my friends Leslie and Fran’s blogs … thought that it could be fun.   You copy and paste the list on your blog, and then bold the things that you have done. I made the items red and then commented on some of them. 1. Started your own blog – you are … Continue reading

A letter to my son…

Son, Hi. I’m Eric. You’ll call me dad. It won’t be long now before you enter the world … and change my life forever. I couldn’t be more excited for your arrival!! Seriously, I sometimes am still floored that you are there … growing big and strong in your momma’s belly. I’m excited, but I … Continue reading

I feel exhausted…

I’m tired this morning. This week I’ve had the privilege of leading worship for a revival at a church in Poplar Bluff.  I love leading worship, and music has always been one of my creative outlets. Initially when I was asked to participate in the revival I was all in , and excited.  The closer … Continue reading

Dresser project.

So in my last post, I eluded to the fact that I was refinishing an old dresser that I’ve had since I was a kid for our guestroom. Here was a before: It is a pretty solid piece of furniture, but looked “old” and rough.  It had old brass knobs on it, and needed to … Continue reading

Makeover Monday …

So, Kelly and I have been beginning to think about the nursery for Baby Barb (we find out Monday if it’s little boy Barb or little girl Barb), and once we find out the baby’s gender, I’m sure nursery prep will kick into overdrive.  The room we are going to use as the nursery is … Continue reading

I am …

I’m an insecure person, and compare myself to others. I’ll say things like “man, that guy has it all together – I’m not even close.” I’ve caused hurt feelings, deep scars and perhaps even someone’s distaste for Jesus. Anger can tend to overwhelm me “Seriously!!… Use your freakin turn signal … Go the speed limit … Continue reading

It’s a …. BABY!

Well, by now if you know Kelly and I you know that we are expecting our firsts baby!! We had our first ultrasound yesterday and are 12 weeks and 2 days so far.  It’s been a little torturous not being able to just tell everyone, but we are SO excited and blessed that the Lord … Continue reading

Thursday is for … thrifty crafters.

I guess I’ve always just been wired as a “creator.”  I love making things.  Taking random items and coming up with an entirely new object/product at the end. Not every craft project, painting or new meal turned out great … I’ve had my fair share of epic flops, but there is something about the process … Continue reading

Why?

Why. Toddlers are notorious for asking the question “why?”  Kids love asking questions and finding out answers to, well, just about everything. Ever known a kid like that? I’m 33 years old and I’m sure I’ve asked the question “why?” my fair share of times.  Times when I have wondered WHY schedules were changed, something … Continue reading
