SMP 4.15.13

SMP = Seven Minute Post

WooHoo-it's tax day! Good thing we filed an extension last week because we've been too busy to work on taxes. Actually, we don't even do our own taxes. And for probably the past four of five years we've filed an extension. It might be a tax day miracle if we ever again file in April. Yep, we are THAT family.

I'm excited it's Monday even though it begins another full week. The pace of April always catches me by surprise. I expect May to be busy, but April? I think it's the new May.

I mentioned in my post yesterday that I went to a conference this weekend. It was Stasi Eldredge's Becoming Myself conference. The way I found out about it was completely random but I'm a huge fan of hers plus it was local, affordable and my calendar was free so I signed myself up and took a friend with me. It was SO SO SO good, y'all. I'm still processing some of what she said (will be for awhile) but I left with a renewed awareness of truth that affects the way I live and love and hopefully I can flesh that out a bit more when I have more than 7 minutes to post. 

After the conference ended I met my family at church to help package meals for Kids Against Hunger. Our church partnered with this ministry and a huge team of volunteers worked together to pack over eighty boxes of meals to be sent to hungry kids around the world. It was AWESOME and I hope we can do it again next year. And I totally ripped this picture from our church's FB page...the hair nets were NOT awesome but the rest of the experience was.

Speaking of meals, I've made these grain-free pancakes THREE times in the last week. I'm the only one who eats them so I just refrigerate the leftovers and re-heat each morning but they are delicious! You should really try them. I know I linked to that already but they're so good!

Okay...gotta start my busy day. Peace out, peeps.

Hey, Mer. We've done the KAH food packets many times over the years. Both our church and the college campus host packagings (?) regularly, and I love that it's something hands-on and easy to involve our kids with.
