The New Normal.

The New Normal.

Thank you all so, so much for your kind words, supportive comments, and encouraging hearts during one of the most difficult times our family has ever experienced.  I’ve thought to myself SO many times… how can people who don’t have faith in Jesus make it through times like these?  The assurance that we’ll all be … Continue reading

It’s Only Appropriate.

It’s Only Appropriate.

Each day, as soon as I get to work, I open up my inbox, and there sits my Daily Devotional, just waiting to be read.  Friday morning was no different, but I found it to be a sweet little “coincidence” February 7th, the 2nd year anniversary of Jarid and my engagement, the title was, “Five … Continue reading

New Things, New Year!

New Things, New Year!

As the New Year made its grand entrance, Jarid and I were, as always, surrounded by friends and family. The night was filled with games, noisemakers, fireworks, and food.  When 2014 began, all I could think about was the fact that I wanted my bed.  I’m just NOT a night owl.  We crashed pretty hard … Continue reading

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.

Our home is completely decked out at this point… the adorned  Christmas tree, the framed printables (thank you, Pinterest), and the end table decor combined makes for one quite festive living room. Of course, I still have a handful of gifts to buy, even more to wrap, and a bunch of baking I’d like to … Continue reading

DIY Anthro-Inspired Coffee Filter Lamp Shade

This blog has been neglected.  I know.  Fortunately for me, that means my life has not.  I’ve spent time doing other things, without feeling as though I had to document every little snippet for posting on the blog. That being said, I did feel the need to remember lots of the things I’ve been doing, … Continue reading

Bowman Family Reunion + DIY Button Art!!

Bowman Family Reunion + DIY Button Art!!

As per usual, the weekend was a blur.  I had my first REAL lab (two weeks ago we had the start of the semester, but the lab only included “safety”).  This week was much more fun.  We conducted experiments using iodine to test for starch in things like corn starch, table sugar, potatoes, bananas, saltines, … Continue reading

Labor Day Loving.

Labor Day Loving.

Allow me to put a disclaimer on this post by starting off with the fact that I, am by no means, a “TV person”.  I don’t particularly enjoy it much at all.  There are very few shows that can capture my attention long enough, or that I like enough to “make time” to watch.  Once … Continue reading

Friday Fun!

Friday Fun!

Well guys, 8/19 marked the beginning of the Fall semester.  Yes, that means Human Biology and Intercultural Communications will be on my agenda until December. While the classes themselves aren’t necessarily going to be “fun” all the time, the fact that it will lead me one step closer to this degree of mine, IS fun. … Continue reading

Tuesday Triumphs.

Tuesday Triumphs.

Well, considering this is my first blog post in almost a week, I consider this alone a triumph.  I’ve been working my butt off on school work… three classes over the summer with a full-time job might have not been my most intelligent decision ever, but it’s what I had to do in order to … Continue reading
