7QT - Not my circus, not my monkeys

1 - I'm a Matt Maher fan. His Mass of St. Timothy was the Mass sung at our wedding, including the Litany of Saints which we filled with all our favorite saints.

2 - I'd like to get this Polish proverb made into some kind of sign to hang in my house. Maybe in the living room.

3 - This is what we look like when we go for a walk around the neighborhood.
Except it won't be our neighborhood for much longer.
That's right! We SOLD our house!!!! Thank you to everyone who prayed for us. If you could all now say a prayer that we quickly find a wonderful new home I would be ever so grateful. 

4 - Earlier this week I was able to do a Skype interview with our lovely Seven Quick Takes hostess, Jennifer Fulwiler. If you haven't gotten a chance to watch it I encourage you to do so. Jen is a delight and I had a lot of fun chatting with her about her new ebook, The Family First Creative. You can see it here

I'll be sharing some outtakes from the interview on the A Knotted Life Facebook page so be sure to Like it if you have't yet. 

5 - I got a good chuckle out of this. I thought other John Wayne fans would appreciate it too.

6 - Ben, who will be 5 this September is already counting down to his next birthday party. There must be balloons, and plenty of them. His Grandma is supposed to take him somewhere special for lunch and then, I was told, then he would like a surprise birthday party waiting for him. Such high demands, but he's so adorable I think I'll give him what he wants. 

7 - This week was supposed to be Book Week! on my blog but selling a house, celebrating Travis' birthday, and life all got in the way. Come back every day *next* week and I'll have a give away and some reviews of some books that I really loved. 

Have a great weekend, everyone. God bless you all.
And thanks again, Jen!


  1. Congrats on selling your house!!! That's got to be a huge relief! And #5 made me LOL.

  2. Congratulations on selling your house! Praying you find a new one soon. :)

  3. Congrats on your house selling! Praying you find a perfect new one to move into!

  4. Found you via 7QT...thanks for the Maher song (loved it!)...and I'm writing the quote on my kitchen cupboards. I feel like it applies, even with just one kid and a husband. :)

  5. Congrats on selling your house!!
    Will swap prayer requests with you; we have found a house and now need to sell ours. Will be praying you find 'your' house very soon.

  6. What a tremendous relief! Selling a home (especially when you have kids) is such a nerve-wracking experience isn't it? Congratulations!

  7. Congrats on the house news! So exciting for you!

  8. Yay House! Much loving this playlist. So sweet and fun. Your interview w the Jen was Awe-Some. :) Happy weekend.

  9. #2: totally stealing. Also, got to recitethis.com to make cool meme-text poster things w/ quotes

    #3: you guys are the. cutest. on the block....and HURRAH! :0)

    #5: hahahahaha :0)

    1. On second thought, that cotton candy poster is the best. :0)

  10. Love that proverb... I bought this version but I haven't hung it yet:

  11. As a John Wayne fan, I love your #5!! And that's great news on your house finding a buyer too:)

  12. That is one of my favorite sayings as well! Although, most of the time is IS my circus, and they ARE my monkeys!

  13. Thanks for posting on Matt Maher, I didn't know him before and I like!

  14. Yay yay sold house!!! So happy for you all - what a blessing and relief!

    We had Matt Maher's Litany of the Saints at our wedding, too, where we "customized" it to mention those saints who were instrumental in our lives both as individuals and as a couple. It was surprisingly the most emotional part of the wedding for me. I'll always treasure that and I am so grateful we decided to include it!
