A New Year's Eve Story...

It was New Year’s Eve, 2015.  The lamp in her room could be seen glowing through the windows and spilling through the darkness.  As the last minutes of 2015 slowly ticked away, the coming New Year was not the only thing on her mind…

Lessons from 2016

Hey y’all!  I want to first apologize for making a terrible day 4 out of New Year Blog Week yesterday!  I didn’t think about how the surgery would impact how I was functioning for the rest of the day.  Thank you all so much for your prayers for my recovery; I’m feeling a little better today, so I hope this post is way better and more interesting than yesterday’s ;)

My Goals // 2017

Hey y’all!  Okay, this is going to be a short post, since I had surgery this morning and I’m feeling just plain yucky right now.  But I didn’t want to skip a day completely, so here I am!  These are the things that are on my 2017 goal list right now…

Favorite Posts of 2016

Hey y’all!  It’s time to begin day 3 of New Year Blog Week! :)  I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s post, and if you haven’t yet, please leave me a comment and let me know what God did in your life in 2016!  For today’s post, I’d like to take a moment to discuss my favorite posts of 2016 on Sour Cream and Chips, and to link back to them.

My Goals // 2016 Review

Hey y’all!  Welcome to day 2 of Sour Cream and Chip’s first New Year Blog Week!  In this post, I’d like to take some time to review my 2016 goals and talk about the things I did and did not complete on my 2016 list, as well as share some of my extra accomplishments from 2016!

New Year Blog Week 2016!

Hey y’all!  Today I’m super-duper excited to announce to you... *drum roll*… New Year Blog Week 2016!!  I came up with it not even 10 minutes ago and I was ecstatic with the idea!  What better way to celebrate the New Year than with a whole week of fun blog posts here on Sour Cream and Chip’s?!

Card Inspiration // Christmas Gift Card Set

Hey y’all!  It’s just 2 days till Christmas!!  Can you believe it?!   Today I’m wrapping up the last of my gifts, one of which is a card set for my grandma.  I’ve had some cards sitting in my box for a while now, so I figured I would go ahead and make a few more to finish a set of 8.  In no time, I had tied together the little stack and they’re now sitting in a gift bag on a shelf in my room, waiting for another gift to join them before the bag is taped shut and placed under the tree.

8 Ways to Give this Christmas

Hey y’all!  As Christmas continues to rapidly approach, you’re probably making daily mental lists of what gifts you have already bought and who you are still missing a present for.  “Who do I still need to buy for?” is probably THE question of the season. I totally get it; I’ve been doing it too!  But instead of thinking, “this person expects a gift” (because, you know, that’s the truth for most of those on your list), why not take a moment to contemplate “who can I unexpectedly bless this Christmas with a gift?”

My Goals // December 2016

Hey y’all!  It’s officially the last month of the year... EEK!  Where did all the time go?!  And Christmas in just a few weeks, I can’t believe.  The majority of our decorations (although there are not really that many of them) went up today, Christmas music has been playing, and this afternoon my mom baked us all some soft, yummy chocolate chip cookies to bring in the wonderful smells and tastes too :)  Oh yes, December most certainly is here!
