weddings ROCK

in our recent podcast we stated that divorce sucks, on the other end of the spectrum; weddings ROCK! i came across the video below via @youcanknowgod on twitter (great twitter name btw).

i love the fact that this couple took the time to be so fun, creative and original to begin their wedding. but more importantly to begin their marriage. my prayer for them is that they would continue to put that much time, effort, creativity and fun in their marriage in the days, months, and years to come.

i’m glad they’re wearing boxers

so yesterday my sister asked for ideas to give her kids when they mention they’re bored. i’m not sure if the following video is what she had in mind, but i’m pretty sure that her boys are going to love it!

…i first saw this video a couple months ago when it was featured on the ” best of YouTube ” podcast. it’s a great site where it does exactly as the title suggests, simply to find the best clips from YouTube. sometimes the clips are funny, or incredible tricks, or amazing talent.

there are five reasons why at the lara house we’ve been waiting for this day with anticipation for several reasons.

first of all it’s trash day and our trash has been full since last friday. last friday i trimmed the hedges around our house. we were going to have company that evening so deb wanted me to clean up all the trimmings. well that filled up our garbage bin and we’ve had to walk over to the church parking lot to throw away our everyday trash bags all week.

secondly, today Phil Wickham is giving away his latest album “Singalong” on his blog. yes, the full album is available for download. all you gotta do is go to his site, fill out your name and email and zip code. then they’ll send you a link to download the album. (warning: this does sign you up for their email newsletter, but you’re getting a free album!)
