Oh, the randomness!

*My husband got up at 4:30 am to go get disaster food stamps for the wages we lost during Gustav. The place opened at 6 am and Matt knew he had to get there early in order to be in and out before he had to get to work. Last week people were spending the night just to get a good place in line! Matt got there at 5 am and was 5th in line (I'll let him tell you his adventures of finding the line). He got in and out with $423 worth on the food stamp card by 6:45 am! How awesome is God (and my husband)?! Matt even came home after that and made breakfast for us before he went to work! What a pleasant morning!

*I enjoyed a nice cup of iced coffee at home this morning thanks to this
and this
...and the awesome thing is that I can get 16 cups of coffee out of the Cool Brew, which cost less than $5. So I am paying about 31 CENTS per cup of coffee! That definitely beats the $2 at McDonald's or $4 at Starbucks for my iced coffee!

*We are heading to Atlanta this weekend for a Switchfoot, Third Day, and Jars of Clay concert. And we're going to spend some time with Matt's family too! It should be a fun time!

*I have decided that I'm going to make Emma's baby food. It's really not that hard and we will save a TON of money by doing this. I've found a great website that is full of resources on making baby food. I'm quite excited about this endeavor of mine!

*Emma will be 4 months old on Sunday. It's hard to believe that much time has passed! She will be getting baptized the next Sunday (the 28th) and we are looking forward to that special day.

So, that was a lot of randomness that I've been wanting to share. Hope everyone is having a great week! I've got some new pictures and videos of Emma that I will upload soon.

Of course you can only get the cool brew in NOLA. That is so not fair!!!!! I want it in Mocha. I would so love that!
