3 years ago, when we were getting ready to move into our house, I found a dishwasher at a yard sale for $ 25.00. (We knew we needed a new one) It worked perfectly until a few days ago, and naturally, it had to stop working while I had a mountain of dishes that were waiting to go into the dishwasher to be cleaned. I've learned that things don't break at a "convient" time, so you just deal with it. Luckily, our AMAZING friends, Michelle & Jon (who own Van Vleet plumbing, and are SUPER, by the way if you have plumbing needs)had an extra dishwasher that they gave us- THANK YOU!!! So, after a few days of washing dishes by hand, I made Trav install the new one, which he did last night. After it was all done, we did a test load. Holy Cow, there was the loudest noise coming from the poor thing. Something was clanking around and I just sat there thinking, Lord, I am so grateful for this dishwasher, don't get me wrong- but if there is anyway to make that awful noise stop, could you please help us out? I tried convincing myself it would be okay, but the longer the cycle went, the more I realized that I would pay A LOT of money for a new one, it was just awful. Trav did some researching on the internet and found that other people had simuliar problems, so after reading their comments, he took a bunch of pieces apart, and found 6 screws, 1 clear marble & a chunck of plastic inside! Well, no wonder it was so loud! After he put things back together, it worked like a charm! Once again I am thankful for friends who care about us and a God that answers dishwasher prayers.

My lovely friend Christy is expecting her 2nd baby next month, so Chelsea & I went to her baby shower on Saturday. It was an awesome Beatles theme, decorated beautifully with great friends and yummy food. She recieved lots of adorable gifts for the tiny baby- I can't wait until he "pops out of her tummy!" (In Grace's words)
(Sorry for the tummy shot Chelsea!)
