Things I'm Lovin':

I have some pretty cool things to share with you today.
Let me just start with the coolest. 
 For the past couple of months, we've been ordering, sporting, and gifting these awesome Sevenly shirts. 
 Basically this organization designs and sells a new tee shirt every week that benefits a designated charity. 
There are tons of different causes out there, and so many charities that have so much trouble getting their name out there and being heard on behalf of the causes they are working so hard to overcome and lift up. 
Sevenly is an awesome way to spotlight different causes, needs, and organizations working so hard. 
They've got some pretty awesome shirts too. 
I have one that helped bring clean water to a family in Hati, and I have one that helped women in poverty get free mammograms. 
Philip has one that helped bring clean water to a family in Hati, and he has one that helped bring farming seed and supply for a family in Kenya to be able to grow and harvest their own food. 
 Every week there's a new tee and a new charity, and even if we don't get a tee shirt, I always like to check out the charities and causes out there. 
It's really an awesome thing, and I love Sevenly! 
So keep them in mind for some of your upcoming Holiday gifts for both your loved ones and those in need.

You shall give to him freely, and your heart shall not be grudging when you give to him, because for this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you undertake. For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.
Deuteronomy 15:10-11

Okay. So the other things I have aren't AS cool as Sevenly, but they are still pretty cool!

I've got puppy pictures.
Who doesn't love puppy pictures? 
Yep, Scarlet is pretty cool! I love me some Labradoodle.
I've been missing Gracie so badly! I'm looking forward to having a doggie back in our house. I hope she brings us as much laughter as Gracie did!
1 more month until Adeline get's her baby puppy!

Aaaaallllrighty ready for another cool thing?

Preschool Prep Meet the Sight Words
My friend Rachel turned us onto this, and I think it's super awesome! 
[available @ LuLeLo ]
Adeline has watched the first DVD about 5 times now, and she can already recognize 9 words!
(play, for, said, to, he, a, I, to, of)
She's only 2 1/2. 
I want to let her recognize all of the words before I show her the other 2 DVDs, but she really loves watching the DVD and asks for it a lot now. I also got the app on my phone, and she asks for that too. It's an awesome learning tool, and I love and really believe in educational toys, games, and play!!! Thanks Rachel!

Okay, speaking off app, look what app I've recently fell in love with:
Philip has been doing a lot of work in Texas, so he's been driving a lot. This app has come in so handy because he send us a little voice message randomly while he's driving, or Adeline can tell him goodnight if he's busy working and he can hear it at his convenience. Super cool free app. Love the free ones! 

Okay and last thing I think is pretty cool here lately is this Etsy shop: Naptime Diaries
She's got the cutest, sweetest little designs. I love this one!

Alright. That's all the coolness I have for now. 
Until next time, friends <3
