"Won't Turn Back"

(by NEEDTOBREATHE) Needtobreathe - The Outsiders - Won't Turn Back





I love the sound of this song! My favorite line is, "So tell me why I should run for cover at the sound of the coming thunder?" The melody makes me happy, and the words are good, too. I love all of NTB's stuff! :)

This week hasn't really been too eventful. I'm sorry to bore y'all! I mostly did typical Mom stuff like laundry & grocery shopping! I had a little bit of fun, though! When I sang with Dad at my childhood church, I received a gift card to LifeWay that I spent on this cute clock:

Now, if only I could get the rest of my fireplace mantel decorated! All I have is this on the other end:

& absolutely nothing in niche in the middle! My mister has plans for it that involve iron work & stained glass (did I mention that he's wanting to learn that art?)... Maybe it'll be done in a few years!

Anyways, back to my week...My friend Laura came over for coffee & scones on Wednesday. Then on Thursday, I stayed at home with my baby girl (who had a stomach ache). On Friday, I went shopping with Amy & Kyla for goodie bags ~ for yet another ladies' retreat that I won't be able to attend! I don't mind, though, because I like the challenge of a limited budget & a bag to fill!

Elly & I went shopping this morning, so I could find a few things for my latest projects. I had this idea for a fabric-covered, framed board with fun knobs to hang my necklaces on. Because I'm cheap, though, the fun knobs have become somewhat ordinary knobs. Can you believe that a pretty knob can run $12 or more?! Oh well! I hope to work on it soon, and I'll be sure to post pictures! My other project is a fresh coat of paint on a new-to-me patio table set from my friend Amy. I was going to keep it the same shade of green that it was, with just a little freshening up. But, I happened to have some indoor/outdoor paint in an olive green, so that is what it will be. I've only just begun, though, so you'll have to wait for pictures of that, too!

This afternoon, I went to a baby shower for a first-time mom. It's so fun to look at the cute baby stuff! Then, this evening, we went to a housewarming for Bently's parents! Am I silly that I'm so proud of how well he's doing with his house training?! Dogs learn so quickly, and I'm amazed at how far he's come in such a short amount of time!

On to other random news: Coffee Crowd (the blog I "help" my mister with) hit 100 fans on facebook this week! My mister is all excited because we got a custom page name! If you like coffee (or you just want to be part of the "crowd"), you should join us! ;) I hope y'all are having a wonderful weekend!

i've gotten some really cute knobs on clearance at Anthropologie for about $2-$3 each. if you have one in the area it'd be fun to check out. and i've been there on several different occasions and found them that cheap...
can't wait to see your project!
