This week was a big week for guest posting. Paige at S'aint Easy volunteered her NFP testimonial for my guest series. It's an amazing witness and has already been featured on The Guiding Star Project's website. Go read it here.
In other Guest Post Palooza news I had my first guest post featured on Mandi at Catholic Newlywed's blog. She's been doing a series about marrying young which is just fantastic and I'm so happy I had the opportunity to add my thoughts to it. If you're interested in reading what I have to say about getting married two days after starting medical school you should check it out. If you just want to see some wedding pictures, have no fear they're there as well. But here's one just to entice you to go see more:

I recently found a FANTASTIC thrift store by my house. It's only about a mile from me but it's located in Fairway which is a pretty fancy side of town and hence the story has pretty fancy stuff. We went this Sunday, when everything is 20% off, and found some get stuff. They had David Kahn jeans, Seven Jeans, Ann Taylor and Banana Republic everything, and really nice house stuff. I'm pretty much set on clothes so I didn't buy too much there but there were some walls in our house that we've been wanting to put stuff on so I headed to the housewares section. Here are my finds.

We have a mouse! I have never had a mouse in the house. Nor did I understand what it really meant to have a mouse in your house. They can get on your counter tops. They can get in your cabinets. They can get under doors. They can get everywhere! We think it's hiding behind our store or dishwasher, or at least that's where I've seen twice now. But he disappears into the crack between our stove and baseboard. Well not any more little mouse, you are going down. We went to Wal Mart and loaded up. Bring it on sucker!
I've always seen Wordle's and thought they were really neat but didn't know how to make them. Well let me tell you, I feel stupid. There is a website (wordle.net at that) where you can go, type in your web address, and press submit then it does the rest of the work. Awesome. So for any newbies checking my blog out for the first time today here's what I blog about. If you go there and make a wordle let me know in the comments or on twitter so I can see what you blog about! :)
Today at noon I'll be part of a religion panel for my school. They picked a handful of students representing most of the flavors of religion and I'm the token Catholic. Everyone will be able to ask whatever questions they want about how our faith affects medicine. I'm a little nervous. I hope that everyone will be respectful and I hope that I say all the right things. If you get a chance to say a little prayer for me I would really appreciate it. Thanks all.
So as if a mouse in the house was not enough, Steven's truck was broken into Wednesday morning. Let me tell you what a pain in the ass this is. We filed a police report and the police said they weren't going to look for it. Instead they told us to check with Pawn shops. Well there are roughly 1000 pawn shops in our town so we decided to call them and ask. Apparently there's a privacy law where they don't have to tell us what's in their store. As if that's not frustrating enough, we decide to drive to the nearest one and ask and were informed that the law requires they hold onto everything for 30 days so it won't even be out yet. This is so the police can check for it. Well the police aren't going to check and they wouldn't tell us what they had. Good God I can't wait to get back to a small town. The police there don't have anything to do and there's only 2 pawn shops. That sounds perfect to me!
