Quick Takes-vol. 20

Pin It
--- 1 ---
Last week's trip to CA for my brother-in-law's wedding was great.  We didn't do a lot, but it was relaxing.  Unfortunately, I sprained my ankle during a hike on Wednesday and have been swollen, bruised, and limping since :-(  My biggest concern as I was on my way to the ground was that I wouldn't be able to dance at the wedding.  Luckily I managed some modified moves at the reception.

The wedding itself was right off of Pinterest, which figures since if you follow me you may have noticed the Bricky (combo of Brian & Vicky) wedding boards I have been working on with my new SIL and her sisters for over a year :-)  Here's a taste:

I'm still on the job hunt here, but it looks like some good things will be materializing soon.  I'll wait to share that for now, but I have something else to share now.

I have been toying with the idea of becoming certified in NFP now for awhile and I'm now actively pursuing that.  I'd like to be certified in Creighton since that's what I know and like, but because of the price tag (tuition, books, travel, etc.), I am also applying to STM and Billings programs.  If you happen to have any advice about getting funding for a program from personal or second-hand experience, I'd love to hear it.  My application for Creighton is due next week!

I have come across several links lately that I'd like to share, even if most people have seen them already.  Just in case!

First, I loved this post about living in community (a topic that seems to be coming up a lot lately).  What do you think?  It sounds great, but I think back on stories I've heard about neighbors and worry that a disagreement over something could really ruin the setting.  I shared it with my cousin as well and she told me there is a community like this in Durham, NC.

And this "Seussian mass" from Rita at Open Window.  I'll just let you take a look first.

And the last two are just funny.  If you're a fan of The Office, you'll look forward to seeing more than just this snippet of other actors you know originally up for parts on the show.

And finally, this has made me laugh out loud both times I've watched it now:

  1. Oh, you linked to my Seuss post! Thank you! You have some great stuff in here. So sorry about your sprain. How awful. The wedding looks amazing! Will we get to see more photos?

    1. Yes indeed, Rita, there is another post with photos of the wedding :-)
