Where we the ride of the weekend
UP // Backyard. Our children's ministry event where I get to dance on stage. I'll always give an UP to dancing.
UP ... DOWN??? // I had to dress like a 'skateboarder' ... I'm 42 years old. I don't own much that looks like a skateboarder. I figure as long as I throw a hat on backwards, I'm good to go.
|Crazy smeared mascara adds to the look - right?|
DOWN // Good Lord... dancing where all the songs involve some sort of jumping or spinning, or twisting down... all of this with bad knees. I never feel older in my life....
UP // ... but I keep smiling & high fiving all the kids. Fake it till you make it.
DOWN // Speaking of out of shape, I held my Grandbuddy for about 30 minutes bouncing her to try & get her to sleep. My biceps never burned so much in my life. No wonder mom's arms look amazing.
UP // Rainy mornings where I have no plans...
UP // A clean kitchen...
DOWN //.... that lasted for about 3 hours. WHY can't my counter tops stay cleared off? WHY?????
UP // a 30% off at Kohl's...
|This is how I walk into Kohl's when I have 30% off|
UP // Ended up finding me some aviators for $8.00 & then that 30% off. I have been wanting a pair for the longest times. I bought some Ray-Bans one time. As much as I lose sunglasses, I won't be spending $95 on another pair.
UP // Tried a veggie enchilada at Chuey's. I'm weird about corn being in things so almost didn't get it, but decided not to look at the food - just eat it. It was delish. I'm weird about food. I know.
DOWN // The hubs is having pains in his arms. Not sure what is going on with it. I hate to see him feeling bad & having issues. He's going to the doctor next week. Hoping the pain eases up before then.
UP // the radio stations on our cable provider. I found the Christian music channel & turned it on while I edited pictures. It had some old songs I hadn't heard in years. Let me sing while editing pictures... LOUDLY... makes everything better.
UP // My last bride asked for a picture with her photographers. I so love this picture. I need to start doing it with all my brides. I love my brides. I feel so protective over them, during the day & even afterwards when I keep up with them. I always tell them, by the end of your wedding day, I'm your new best friend. I don't even joke about that.
UP // I actually slept in till 7:30 on Sunday. It felt like heaven.
UP // We had a review on Merge Camp in church on Sunday. I loved when the kids would give me 'honorary awards' for fun things. I love those kids. I love I can act like a fool with them. I walked into the room & one of the kids who came back this week had brought a friend. When he saw me he pointed & said to his friend, "She's super cool"... my reaction? I pointed to him & said, "Yes I am.. don't you ever forget it"... that's how you handle that :)
DOWN // People talking before they think what they say. I totally got dissed in front of the youth kiddos. It is what it is. Stupid.
DOWN // Target... why you no have sizes other then small or EXTRA small. What the heck is extra small anyways? kids sizes? I need my size in this shirt desperately!
|Off to the web site I go|
UP // Got to do a family session with the Pastor of our church & his family. I love his kids like crazy. They are A-MAZ-ING kids & 3 of them are in our youth group. One is headed to college. Tear. I loved getting them in front of my camera. & loved having one last hug & one last prayer with this fantastic young man.
UP// Rain held off for the session....
DOWN // .... Humidity did not. I was a sweaty mess.
DOWN // I couldn't go to sleep last night. I was up at midnight. Getting up at 5:30am, this doesn't look good for me today....
How was your weekend?
