Lunch Date Game

My sisters, mom, and I occasionally have lunch together. Not physically, since we live states away from each other. But we text pictures of our meals to each other during lunch time just to say hi and see what the other is eating for lunch.

Salad with hummus and pita bread.
Homemade Squash Soup and berries
Zucchini bread, veggies, guacamole, hummus, beans. (must have been cleaning out the fridge.)
Not totally healthy.
Toasted homeade bread, tomatoes, basil, mozzarella
Subway, chicken on pita and a frappucino

Dear You -KNOW- who you are,

Here is a post just for you.....

There are not enough words
To express how much you must miss me.
It's okay to be forlorn,
The time will come when you will be
Graced with my presence again.
Until then, wrap yourself in Lilas,
And think of me and how wonderful your life is with me in it.

-Your Fave

I love being a mom, a wife, homeschooling, and staying at home. But I've definitely been feeling like I needed a little corner each week just for me. Today I found out about an opportunity for me to not sacrifice any of my other commitments and my role as wife, mother, and teacher but be able to do something I love also.
I love how God works things out. A door shut last year and now this new one has opened. God is so good in finding ways for me to stay true to my calling and also have an outlet for my creative side. I know this is a little vague. But once I have all the details I will give more info.

I love having a little boy

Shane painted this jeep a long time ago to look like his jeep. And Reece decided that since Daddy had a trailer for his jeep that he needed one too. He found bungee chords in the garage and hooked this up himself.

women's retreat 2010

We had a fabulous time on our Women's retreat this year. I'm finally posting! I'm the one with the pink scarf in the first row and LaRae is lying down in the front. She spear-headed the event and did a fabulous job.
Our pastor's wife Carolyn, black sweater, striped shirt on the left was our main speaker and it was incredible to hear her story. She has had cancer multiple times and is such an example of a women of faith, a wonderful mother and wife, and just a fun friend to have in my life.

Georgia Tech vs. Virginia Tech

Shane is at the game right now with his brother Nic and friends Kevin and Cody. The Jackets are winning and I am cuddled up on the couch, watching The Office, and knitting. It all worked out and Shane got a much deserved night out with the boys.

Just need to complain...

So I am working off of less than two hours of sleep and not much more than that the last week. Good news is I know why Ellie has been up crying...ear infection.

So here I am going to complain a little bit. Just because this is my blog and I'm tired and I need to vent.

Why is it when you're a stay at home mom and you finally have some fun activities planned-- sans kiddos........................

1. one kid is always sick
2. babysitters cancel and you can't find anyone else
3. hubs has a meeting

It's no one's fault. But I will now NOT be going to the Georgia Tech game this week or the Crisis Pregnancy Center charity event with Tebo's mom as speaker. It just plain stinks.

Ok, I'm done feeling sorry for myself. Trying to focus on all the good things and not be so cranky about it.
