// Bless her heart... I stopped at the Starbucks in the grocery on the way home Friday & there was a young girl that was totally confused when I said "Peach Green Tea Lemonade"... it took her 3 tries to make... & it still wasn't right but I wasn't about to have her make it again. I didn't realize it was so hard to make.
This was the hardest worked for PGTL ever!!!
// They had out samples of BLACKBERRY Green Tea lemonade... OH WOW people! We may have a contender!
// How do you just run into the grocery to pick up a few things & end up spending $110? I don't think I can ever get out of ANY store any more under $75.00 ... its sort of ridiculous.
// Ricky brought home pizza. Makes me think of our newlywed days. When we first got married, it was tradition that every Friday, we had pizza & we'd go to Blockbuster & rent a video. So yeah... that shows how long we've been married.
// I am soaking up every bit of sunshine & day light. With the beginning of summer, I live for June 21st... the longest day of the year. I honestly start feeling depressed June 22nd because I know the sun is setting one minute earlier every day. Closer to dark nights. Blah!!!!!!! So I just wanted to sit outside all night Friday night & Saturday night... Not every day of the year you can see blue in the sky after 9 pm... why can't every day be like that?
|This was taken at 9:20pm on Friday|
... isn't the sky CRAZY looking?...
The whole sky had a weird shade... I love summer skies
// Weekend! Time to sleep in!.... nope.... I didn't mind getting up at 6:30am though because the morning was so beautiful & sun was already shining down. See? I'm just a solar person. No question about it.
// Ricky & I went Kinect crazy this weekend. He has mastered darts, but I still make it close & will eek out a win every now & then. But we moved onto skiing. Say hello to the skiing pro. Thankyouverymuch! We had to play until he finally beat me... which it finally won after 10 games by a TENTH of a second. Not a full second - a TENTH of a second. He was OK to stop playing then.
// Believe me, I realize if I actually skied, I would break something & possibly die. Thank you Xbox Kinect for making me an expert in something I know I could never do.
// Had a photo session with Ricky's cousin & her family... which I know makes her my cousin as well... but I have so many cousins, when I say cousin, my family reading this is like, "Now whose daughter is that?"... so easier to just sort it out :) .... ANYHOO.... we were going to schedule for later, but ended up making it an early session. Glad we did to. It was hot & humid - but it had been worse the day before & glad we got it done before 12:30 when it REALLY warmed up. & everyone was such a good sport - especially the kiddos.
// We actually stayed home all day on Saturday after my photo session! That was a strange feeling. Don't think I wasn't busy though. Between editing pictures & trying to do chores & having to beat Ricky AGAIN at skiing... it was a swamped day.
// You'd think a house would get clean when we're home more... I think we mess up a house more. I need a maid.
// I made my own tea concoction - brewed up green tea & added it in with this delicious bit of wonderfulness... by the end of the night, my heart was pounding out of my chest. I forget green tea has caffeine. I had to remember it was a lot of tea & not panic & feel like I needed to go to the ER.
|That Mango Lemonade? ... yummmmy!!!|
// It was Graduation Sunday at church. Another group of kids moving on through. I looked through my Bible & still have the papers from the past years with the kids pictures... mercy... I've been in youth ministry a LONG time.
// I got to lead just a girls small group... so love talking with the girls... & they laughed when they said the lesson they were going to take away from the day was "Boys are dumb" ... well, there you go. I live to teach wise things.
// I loved the news constantly showing the dogs from the Ugly Dog contest this weekend. I just loved Peanut... to hear his story & how he was abused & burned... & someone saw him & said, "He needs me" & adopted him? My heart aches for stories like that...
|I'd take that baby|
// Dad was up & moving around pretty darn good with that new hip. It's sore ... which, duh! But I'm still super impressed how well he's getting around. His incision is looking a little infected right now so mom has put on her doctor's hat & we drove & got all new bandages & gauze. She'll have it looking spic & span before you know it.
// So they gave dad a little contraption that helps you put on your socks when you can't bend over... GENIUS! I need that for Monday mornings.
// I signed up for the Meal Train for Ryan & Chasity ... especially for a good excuse to go see the baby. I actually was going to cook too! & then Ricky & I got into an argument on how not everyone wants a vegetarian dinner & how Ryan is a "growing boy" & needs meat in his diet. So I gave in & we just went & picked up food from a restaurant. Ricky felt vindicated when Ryan ordered a double burger. One loss for vegetarians of the world.
// Ryan can eat all the meat he wants if it means I get to love on this sweet little girl while he does it...
|Isn't she just beautiful... such a dainty girl|
|This is NOT Emerson... but its the same sort of light bed|
// So staying home all day on Saturday?... I made up for it on Sunday... I left the house at 9:15 am & got home at 9:15 pm... but glad to get home in time to watch the new show "Rising Star". I'm totally over singing shows, but I really did like the interaction. I totally downloaded the app & voted along with everyone else. Like my one vote mattered... but I felt like it did. I guarantee that there will now be a dozen new shows coming out with this idea... real time interaction. ... I just don't understand how they did it for the west coast.
|Yep... had my tablet next to me ready to vote|
... this couple was a red arrow... NO!!!
How was your weekend?
Did you watch Rising Star & vote?
Do you love those ugly dogs?
Are Tron babies the wave of the future?
