My name is Brittani, and I'm a bargainista

So, I've done a little bit of bargain shopping a week or two ago, and these were my finds. I desperately need a little "umph" to my room (or a "wow factor" if you will). IKEA was the perfect place (and what do you know...I went on the morning they were giving everyone free breakfasts. haha). Anyway, and Old Navy is just down the street so I somehow ended up there (really a mystery as to how that happened). Anyway, here are some pictures. Old Navy just feeds into my obsession of birds that I'm having right now. :) Hope you enjoy! XOXO

News and (not so) random thoughts

I must say, I am very excited about the team I am on going to India. It's a group of people who are trying to live out their faith, be flexible, understanding, as well as match their faith with action! We had a great meeting this weekend. And I am so excited about the concert this week and how the team is stepping up there as well! I had a great time at lunch with my dad's side of the family yesterday (where the women definitely outnumber the men... haha). In other family news, my grandma on my mom's side went home Friday and is doing better...they released her because the medication seemed to have finally got out of her system. And praise the Lord that the whole time she was able to get up and work on her knee when she needed to and her knee is doing remarkably, because that could have been bad as well. I also got news this weekend that another friend of mine is engaged! Congrats Jen & Cody!!! My first thought is that I am really so excited and my second is "bring it on weddings!" because now two good friends of mine are engaged and I have the feeling that this is a trend that will be continuing for a while. It's exciting for me...I feel all grown up to have friends making such adult decisions and find such great spouses to spend the rest of their lives with. It's also fun to talk wedding stuff (which I got to do with Lauren last night...can't believe her wedding is slightly less than 5 months away). Something else I'm looking forward to is having my sisters visit this week. They're visiting from Sacramento & Chico. Haven't seen then in a while now, which is definitely weird for my family. Well, goodnight and much love!!! XOXOXO

Where's Brittani????

If you haven't noticed...I've been absent for the last 2 weeks. I didn't even realize that it's been that long since I've written a blog post, because things have been that busy. I've been babysitting like a crazy woman. And as if my life wasn't already busy enough, things for the India trip are in full swing. This includes a concert at Rockharbor Church with Molly Jenson & The Pawnshop Kings!!! I'm spearheading it and it's next Thursday, October 22nd. It's so awesome and I can't believe it's actually happening! What a new experience for me to be leading this trip and planning a church-wide concert! I pray that my agenda does not get in the way of having an amazing concert that helps support our trip and Harvest India. Because I know that with the flooding happening right now in India, a God size task is needed. I am also amazed that I am able to go right after this flooding has happened and the whole team can go and help in so many needed ways. If you could be praying for all of that it would be so greatly appreciated. Also, my mom drove to Arizona 2 days ago to be with my grandma (who had knee surgery) becauseof complications with surgery and the medications administered to my grandma. She's slowly getting better but to me it's kind of weird because a lot of details and answers haven't been given to my mom & grandpa about what exactly happened. They do know she was basically given too much medication and say it happens and depending on the type of person they can go kind of "in and out of it" so to speak...meaning my grandma has had a couple weird hallucinations. But they plan on discharging her either today or tomorrow. Well, I am truly tired but if you could make it out to the MOLLY JENSON & PAWNSHOP KINGS concert on OCTOBER 22ND that would be great!!!! Much love to you all! :) Oh, and here is this poster/flyer that I created for the concert...isn't it just so artsy and lovely and vibrant (and an absolutely stunning picture of Molly --and the Pawnshop Kings)??? I love it. Of course they aren't pictures I took, but I can't believe I was able to do something like that... I really am not the creative, remember? I'm the science nerd in my family (with the glasses & all...haha)
