Open Carried at Lobby Day 2012

Open Carried at Lobby Day 2012

In January 2012 I had the opportunity to go to Richmond for Lobby Day on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As I’ve blogged about previously, this is an important event to meet with the legislators and let them know what we think about certain bills up coming. Honestly, I am the type of person who […]

Made Shotgun Shell Christmas Lights

Made Shotgun Shell Christmas Lights

Husband and I had some free time around Christmas. This led to me scouring pinterest for awesome decluttering ideas and diy ideas. I kept seeing pictures of shotgun shell decorated Christmas lights. Due to Husband’s reloading supplies that take up a good chunk of the office he had several buckets of shotgun shells that he […]

Asked For a Kitchen Tool For Christma...

Asked For a Kitchen Tool For Christmas

Close to Christmas husband asked me what I wanted. I realized that it’d be too late for him to order something online and despite the fact that I really enjoy the mystery of unwrapping a present on Christmas morning. However, being married to a guy, I’ve realized that its much easier for him, and much […]

Celebrated my 25th Birthday

Celebrated my 25th Birthday

This was actually much earlier this month, but in the midst of suddenly working a full time schedule in the office of my internship location, learning the job while trying to answer three different busy phone lines and training our new office manager while I was still learning it myself was a smidge crazy! I […]

Been a Counselor

Been a Counselor

This week was the first week of my internship! It was exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. Monday night I couldn’t sleep. I kept feeling like I should have prepared more in some way. I didn’t feel like I had any information in my head. I tossed and turned, before finally turning on my cell phone […]

Won NaNoWriMo

Won NaNoWriMo

As I announced to you awhile ago, I happily participated in NaNoWriMo for the first time in my life! For the first weekend of November, and thus the first weekend of NaNoWriMo we had a few friends in town and decided to host a write-in event! There were snacks and laughter galore.   It was […]

Owned a Tshirt Quilt

Owned a Tshirt Quilt

Ask my husband, I am a terrible pack rat. I’m hugely sentimental so I tend to collect anything that could have a memory associated with it. Seriously, sometimes this could be a receipt or candy wrapper. This means in my drawers I tend to have tshirts that I’ve collected from various organizations/occupations etc. I actually […]

Solved the Gun Massacre Problem

Solved the Gun Massacre Problem

This post originates from a random tweet that I came across a few mornings ago from a twitter account about Italy (followed because I miss Italy and like to stay updated about it!) Because I have become so educated about these types of arguments, and they’ve become common place in my life…I actually decided to respond. This […]

Surprised My In-laws For Thanksgiving

Surprised My In-laws For Thanksgiving

When husband’s sister and husband visited in September when we went to the Lewis Ginter Botantical Garden, she suggested that we should connive together to plan a secret trip to visit their parents. I always enjoy visiting with them (as many of our previous posts will show). As time grew closer husband realized that he had some […]

Donated My Hair with Pantene’s ...

When I was a teenager it became a big deal to donate one’s hair to be made into a wig, to be given to cancer patients without hair. This is something that I’ve always wanted to do, but back them most of the regulations stated that your donated hair needed to be at least 12inches […]

About Me

Hi! My name is Erin, and this is a place to "process out loud" in the words of my friends. You've probably noticed that the theme is kind of a wide theme, that is much like my life as I'm interested in MANY things: traveling, photography, jogging (its new!), being crafty, homesteading, firearms/self defense, and learning how to be a good wife. Through all of these things my goal is growing to know Christ more, and to make Him known. Each post shares a little about the promise that God has given me, that He'll finish what he began in me! (Phil 1:6) So thank you for joining me on this wonderful adventure.
