What do I know of holy?

Every time I (Becky) hear this song (by Addison Road), the words are so convicting to me:

I made you promises a thousand times
I tried to hear from heaven
But I talked the whole time
I think I made you too small
I never feared you at all
If you touched my face would I know you?
Looked into my eyes could I behold you?

I guess I thought that I had figured You out
I knew all the stores and I leared to talk about
How you were mighty to save
Those were only empty words on a page
Then I caught a glimpse of who You might be
The slightest hint of you brought me down to my knees

That's all. Could you guys please be keeping a few different people and their 'we want to have a baby' situations in your prayers? I don't know any of them personally, but I've gotten lots of second hand stories recently of people who have had adoptions, in vitro, etc fall through.

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Saturday Morning Live: Weekend Update

Becky and I are huge fans of Seth Meyer's SNL Weekend Update. We're often times too lame to stay up and watch it live, but we're pretty addicted and get our fix on Netflix. That's where the title of this post comes in.

This week has been cold and kind of lazy. We convinced ourselves we didn't have to do anything since it was 35 degrees outside. Jed Bartlett would call us "a bunch of tanned-ass Southerners." I will admit that we are wimps in the cold, but I don't want to hear any whining from those of you north of the Mason-Dixon line when the mercury tops out at 92 degrees.

Becky is a Craigslist fiend. Her spiritual gift is Craigslisting. She once bought a bionic arm from a man in Minnesota passing through town for $13**. It now sits on our coffee table. It was such a quick transaction. It literally went from helping him steer his Malibu to sitting on our coffee table in less than 45 minutes. It's a great conversation piece.

She's really wanted a sleigh bed for about two years now. It kind of got put on the back burner until recently. We bought one on Craigslist two weekends ago for $50. We started its rehab last night. With her keen eye and my pickup truck, we've managed to Craigslist quite a bit of good stuff.

Eventually it will go in our master bedroom. We're really excited to have a real bed for the first time in our marriage (we've been sleeping on a frame). Keep pressuring Becky for finished pictures. Until then, here are some cell phone shots of our progress.
