happy monday

hello friends! 
happy monday to you all hope you had a great weekend. i know i did. i got so much done on saturday and enjoy great times with friends. clint and i haven't had a weekend at home since we have been married and it felt great to not have to be anywhere and just relax, catch up on house work, and bake!

some catch up

 lately life has been busy as summer is winding down 
that is why i have been a bit quiet around these parts.
 i have been enjoying bestie time, sister time, husband time, and baking time

i have been sporting my happy days earring this summer and love them! 
you should probably get a pair, or five

 family parties are always a good time.
we were able to celebrate two cute nieces birthdays this past weekend.
i also got to snuggle with our newest niece and 
my brother in law decided to sport his daughters cute clip
this soup
is to die for
if you live in manitoba or if you ever travel to winnipeg you must stop at 
everything there is absolutely amazing!

this weeks goal is to get all our thank you cards written up, 
this task may be slightly difficult considering i have lost one of the lists of people to thank. 
i hope it shows up somewhere soon!

some things i am looking forward to this week are:
sending my mugswap package away / possibly getting mine
surprise dinner date with my dad 
(he doesn't read this here blog so i can share with out ruining the surprise)
printing off some of these pretties

what are you looking forward to this week?

it is full force harvest time around here. i love all the golden fields of wheat, barley, oats and canola. slowly they are all being cut down because it is just that time. 

as i was watching a combine in the field i was thinking about how harvest is brought up many times in the bible.

here are some verse that i found about harvest that i really liked and hit home.

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.  But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.  For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness. 
James 3:13-18 NIV

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
Hebrews 12:11 NIV

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
Galatians 6:7-10 NIV
