wonderfully made: Weekend Wrap-up and big changes!

Weekend Wrap-up and big changes!

First things first! You might notice a few changes around here, most notably my new blog title! I had no intention of changing my title any time soon but yesterday I was playing around in Blogger and it just came to me and 'wonderfully made' seemed like the perfect name for this blog. Here's where it comes from:

"I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well."

Psalm 139:14 NKJV

This scripture is beautiful and I feel like it is the perfect representation of my blog as it is now and what  I want it to reflect moving forward. "Wonderfully made" is a constant reminder of my love of Christ and also can be applied to so many aspects of my blog.

 I started this blog as a DIY and home decor blog and have shared parts of our home that are 'wonderfully made'. Along the way I've also morphed into a lifestyle blogger so there are some posts that have nothing to do with DIY but are about my life and my family, which are 'wonderfully made'. 

Let me know if you like the new title and if needed, change your reader and your bookmarks to www.thewonderfullymade.blogspot.com. I'm so happy about this change!

In other news, we have had a great weekend in the Buchanan home!

First of all, I've been testing out the Nikon D3100 that I got from my parents and Mark for my birthday. I still have a LOT to learn as this is my first DSLR, but it is fun to play with! 

Brittany, heather, and Stacy came in town late on Friday night. Heather was hungry and we weren't too exhausted so we headed up the road for the nearest Mexican place still serving food for some late night chips and salsa. By the time we got back to the house, it was 8am in London so we Skyped with Emily! There were lots of giggles!

Saturday morning I made cinnamon rolls, bacon, and eggs and we chatted over breakfast. Heather and I went our own way and headed to White Rock Lake for a walk with motley. The weather was so nice and it wasn't too crowded!

Brittany and Stacy headed to the mall and came back with some awesome deals! 

We napped and lounged around in the afternoon before we met up with Jody, Jayde, and Kara for dinner. We went to Urban Crust, per usual! After dinner we headed down to Dallas for some live music. We had a great time!

On Sunday, the girls packed up and headed out of town while mark and I went down to our old stomping grounds. We had made reservations about two weeks ago for brunch at Hattie's to celebrate Valentines day. We aren't into crowds or a big fuss over the holiday so a relaxed, yummy brunch was perfect! We walked around bishop arts a little so I could play with my camera and then we headed back home. 

I'm off work today for Presidents' Day so I'm enjoying the weather and time off before the week gets crazy!

Be sure to check out my blog tomorrow for a fun post featuring Warby Parker!

(Also, i'm linked up with Leeann today!)

Happy Monday!
