Happy Monday! This week may be one of transition as my hubby started his new job, so there will be new hours for him and a whole lot of other changes for sure…like more income and plans with what to do with that income (pay off our house in a shorter amount of time, wish us luck). But on to today’s post.
Last week my little family and I made Wednesday a “What do you want day?” To play this we all asked each other the morning of or night before what we wanted to accomplish or do that Wednesday and here were the responses and what got done and how that was accomplished:
Me- do something with my hair, something different (so as you see in this post, first attempt at french braid in forever), take blog photos wearing monochromatic pastel colors and blog.
Hubby- update and get a new iPhone, he ended up with a iPhone 6 something (pardon me as I know nothing about updated Apple products)
Nevaeh- just to go to church (which we did, as a family)
Alexander- Ice cream with chocolate- well he ended up wanting a bag of chips instead but got a little ice cream.
Elizabeth- fries, so we got frozen fries from the store and put these in the oven for lunch with pizza.
Max- eat, so we ate pizza and fries and later that night sandwiches. The boy sure loves eating but he is as skinny and as little as any little thing so we joke and say he must have a tapeworm or something haha!
I rather liked the results of these photos as my hubby has become quite the photographer. I read on A Beautiful Mess blog some tips on Fashion Blogging photography and told the tips to my husband and so he is eager to take what he is learning, for example photos in front of an interesting colorful wall or dual colored walls. Here this blue wall brings out the pastels and whites and creates a more natural bright lighting effect.
I also like how my french braid and little side pony tail looked together.
There is more though to “What we want day,” there has been some “God provides what we wanted or he wants” day. This means that there were little things I had wanted to happen or wished for and these look like a possibility or are happening. My hubby got a better job (what he prayed for), and I actually wanted something new done with my hair and some monetary opportunities for the blog and both of these are happening real soon which is awesome. God is awesome!
Have you ever had a “What I would like day?” What would you do? Has God provided for you something you asked or wanted recently?
