This is a really great post! What a fantastic idea!

Congrats on your blender/food processor, I bet that's a lot of fun and a real time saver! It sounds like the Sunday Sermon was a great reminder, I'll have to jot that down! Finally, happy birthday...I'm sorry I missed telling you last week!

LOVE the birthday gift! =D

I can't believe it's hotter there than here in the deeeeeeep south. I feel so much cooler now just knowing that. =P

105? 105!!? We're nice and balmy in the low 70's for highs but several degrees above freezing for lows. At least I think we're still above freezing.
