Company Girl Coffee 04.10.09

Hello Company Girls!

Well it has been a busy week. As I mentioned in a previous post, we sold our house last Friday after only 3 days on the market. Clearly God's hand was guiding the whole process because such a thing is impossible these days. Dave and I are so grateful to Him. This Wednesday the house was inspected and only a few issues were found, so it looks like everything should go through. We'll be closing on April 30th, and then we have 3 extra days to move. We'll be subleasing from our friends Debbie and Brian, who are moving into their new house around the same time but will still have an apartment lease. It looks like everything will work out. Then our new house should be done in August. I can't wait! Check out the pics in my previous post, House Pics #1.

Other events of the week would include a not-fun dermatology appointment on Monday that you can read about here: Dermatologist. Then last night we had a birthday get-together for Dave's brother, Dan. Pictures will be posted soon, which I took for their mom because I knew she'd want to see them. :)

This weekend we are traveling to Charlotte to visit Dave's family for Easter. Tomorrow morning we're stopping at the new Ikea store in Charlotte on the way, which I'm pretty psyched about. :) It should be a good weekend. We haven't been to Charlotte since Christmastime so we're due for a visit.

So last week's trivia was the following:
True or False: When Ninevah repented, its residents put sackcloth on all their animals.

Answer: TRUE See Jonah 3:8.

This week's trivia: What is the shortest chapter in the Bible?

What are everyone else's plans for Easter? Anything exciting? Does anyone have today off of work? I sure don't. Also, let's not forget the true meaning of this weekend. Take a couple moments to pause and thank God for the sacrifice of Jesus. (Does anyone else think that Easter should be the biggest holiday of the year and not Christmas?)

God bless!


  1. Kara, how exciting to have sold your house! I love those "in 3 day" happenings!!! Going to IKEA?! Drooling of my favorite stores. I can dream for hours with the catalogue and being in the store, too.

    Have a wonderful Easter with Dave's family! Thanks for the coffee this morning~

  2. I see you've got some big changes in store! I bet you are excited to move into your NEW home. I can't imagine! I will pray for travelling safety for you. Have fun at Ikea! There is one about two and a half hours from here, but we have yet to make our way there. Lucky girl!!
    Have a great weekend catching up with family and friends!

  3. Wow! I can't believe you sold your house so quickly!
    I really need to go to IKEA, but we don't have one close by.
    Your weekend sounds great! I love Easter because it isn't so commercial like Christmas. They are both important holidays, but I think that I enjoy Easter a lot more.

  4. Hello Kara!
    Wow! Congratulations on selling your house so fast! I've had mine on the market for over five months and I'm praying it will sell soon. You are right though, it is all in God's hands.
    Hope you have a wonderful Easter!

  5. Sounds like exciting times for you and your hubby....very glad that things worked out....I guess that decorating course helped!
    Happy Easter!

  6. Your dermatologist post cracked me up. I had a mole removed from my collar bone a few years ago--it required four stitches. When I went back, she forgot a stitch and about three days later the site was getting infected. Hubby looked and found the stitch. He had to remove it. I am so glad he was there, and that it was on my collar bone, I couldn't see!

    Great news on your house! I pray your new house gets built in record time!

    Happy Easter!

  7. Looks like you're all ready to move in and decorate right now! =p It is so exciting to be a homeowner (minus the bills part).

    I'm 34 weeks today! ahhh...trying to get the house together before it all falls apart when I'm not paying attention. hehe =p

    Have a great weekend.

  8. It's awesome to see how God is working out all the details in your move. I just love it when His hand is so evident!!!

  9. Nice House! Keep the pictures coming. God's timing is so perfect in everything! :)

    Have a wonderful Easter!

  10. Easter (and Good Friday in particular) is my favorite holiday. Thanksgiving is my other favorite...I love the focus of these days. No presents, just Jesus.

    BTW, I truly enjoyed the decorating tips!
