Monday Medley.... Refashion, New aquarium, linkee luv & more:)

OH Happy DAY! 
I have managed to get a little done WHoHooO!YipyipyipEEEEEEEE:)
I finally sat down with this refashioning project on an outfit for Goose.  I think it's kinda cute:

I know it's alittle hard to tell but the top is a hoodie. A friend gave it to her, but it is a 3T.  The pink striped material( and pink pants) came from a 3T outfit she had last year. I cut the sleeves and ruffle off the top and added them to the hoodie to make it a little longer. I also, added a lit bit of the sleeve to bottom of the pink pants to extend them as well.  The hardest part of the whole thing was the sleeve add on to the hoodie. Every thing else was EASY PEASY!! Now Goose's 3T's will last another season!!
The next pics are of our  new AQUARIUM!

Can you see ALL the little ones??? We stopped by A Yard Sale on Saturday. ONE yes ONE!! They had little plastic containers with these babies in them. For a couple of bucks we got approximately a dozen new Family Members:) 
YOU may notice our "tank" is an upcycled coffee pot! Luckily, I had a spare out in the garage. NO I am NOT a hoarder THANK YOU!!  And the little stones were also, stashed from previous projects. UNfortunately, we had to go buy the plant and water conditioner AND food.  That little plant cost more than the all the fish! But, I know they need the oxygen SEWWWW.....

We aren't sure exactly what kind of fish they are. I'm almost positive they are livebearers, as those reproduce the easiest. I'm guessing   that they are probably mollies or platys.  Everyday, Goose asks are THEY bigger yet!???
 You can find more of my Salen finds here at our shop 4given Outlet:)

Just a quick note, I had a comment on My Last POST  that made me realize I wasn't very clear{{{grin}}}. I thought most of you would pick up the references I was making, but that was not the case.  The person "IN The Media" I was referring to was the Pastor here in Florida who was threatening to burn the Korans. While I can appreciate that He does have the right to do so, I can NOT agree with him.  It is MY opinion, that He should have just kept his lips closed!  If you really want to make a difference, the first step is in showing that you care. Demeaning and Antagonizing only produces anger and strife.

My Proverbs for Today:

Prov. 13:10  Pride only breeds quarrels, but wisdom is found in those who take advice.

I have to ask myself:

What areas am I "proud" in spirit , instead of being humble & gentle?
Does being "right" really make things better??
Do I seek advice from the Bible and Godly Men/Women?
Am I only a "hearer" of God's Word or am I a "doer" also??

I am thankful that I serve the God who forgives me when I ask and repent. I am fortunate that my God isn't a scorekeeper.  When I humble myself before Him,  He is merciful and compassionate.

Meet Me on Monday Questions:)

1. What is your favorite pasta dish?  Mac & cheese

2. What is the last thing you do before going to bed?  I thank God for the blessings He is pouring down upon me!

3. How many nights a week do you go out to eat? We may eat out(usually fast food) once every couple of weeks or so.

4. Are you an avid book reader? I love to read. But can't always fit it in:(

5. Would you rather have x-ray vision or bionic hearing?  Well. if Xray vision would enable me to find all the toys with LEAD PAINT in them, I would have to choose that. If not, I wouln't want either, the anxiety of it all would probably keep me locked in my bedroom! :)

Have a Happy Week. Don't forget to check my partay page to see who I'm "hooking" up with!
