Much randomness and a giveaway!!

I just wanted to do some follow ups:


Date night was wonderful! We went to Longhorn
Steakhouse with two other couples that we enjoy spending
time with for supper and I got chicken!! {very out of character
for me-I LOVE steak, but I just wasn't feelin it!}

Then we went to Marble Slab Creamery and I got a MONSTER
dish of ice cream with caramel, fudge, pecans...
Yeah, I know...Curves, here I come!!


The aftermath of the Noah poop story was pretty simple,
I cleaned him and Emmie up first, and gave them to
Ashton to keep OUT OF THE LIVING ROOM!

While she kept them occupied I got a bowl and filled it
with some very strong, concentrated, antibacterial
cleaner and wet a cleaning rag.

First I wiped the bulk of the...ahem...mess...up and went
and washed out my rag. Then I went back and got to
work with the cleaner.

My couch was quite wet by the time I finished scrubbing
and rinsing and scrubbing and rinsing, but at least it
no longer smelled like poop! Then I did the same with
the rug and the rocking chair (which I didn't discover had
anything on it until I was leaving the living room!)

Meghan, I would have LOVED to have gotten a new couch,
but it just wasn't in the budget!!

On a somewhat related note, I am having much hesitation on my part
when it comes to putting Noah in underwear...
I can't imagine why.

And strangely, duct tape on the diaper seems a real option.


Finally, in response to the comments on my Sunday's Song post,
I have decided that since NONE of you have seen the movie
Joseph King of Dreams I'm just going to have to
give a copy of it away!!

That's right. I like it so much and am so amazed that
it is so underwatched that I am going to give
away a copy to one of my bloggy friends!!

It's a great telling of the story of Joseph, and it is really
Biblically accurate. I was a bit surprised because it's
a Hollywood made movie, not a Christian film!

All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what
your favorite Bible story is! That'll get you entered.

For more entries;
1. Follow me.
2. Grab my button.
3. Blog about this giveaway, and in addition to telling what your
favorite story is, also tell me why!
Just leave me a comment for each thing you do
(and link if you blog about it)
so that you can get your extra entries!

I will pick a winner next Wednesday!!

Glad you had a great date night and that the mess is cleaned up. Phew...I was worried.
My favorite Bible story would be Joseph and the coat of many colors. So much going on in that story. Love it.

My favorite story is Sampson and Delilah. Not sure why....was just always my favorite as a kid.

But as an adult, I really appreciate the story of Joseph....what others meant for harm, God intended for good. Great message. And one I need today....
