Project 365... 2011: Week 9

This is the last week of February... AMAZING...

Sunday - Feb 20 - Overnight Art... Look at this art work... its painted by one of the youth kiddos.. & she just did it overnight because she was "bored"!!! Isnt it beautiful?  If you could see it up close, its even more amazing.  It has like blood "splattered" across Jesus' face.  Her art work just blows my mind with every piece I see... She's letting this piece stay in our youth trailer.  Love seeing her talent GLORIFY GOD!!! Go Jordan!

Monday - Feb 22 - Cute Cards.... I wanted to be sure to send out cards to all the youth kiddos that went on the weekend trip to Believe... just a reminder of what they learned... just a surprise to let them know that we (all the leaders) love these kids.  Arent these cards so awesome?  I love stationary... Yes, I'm an office supply nerd...And for the challenge of 52 cards in 52 weeks - so far, my count is up to like 30 cards already!  WHOO HOO!!!  Call me "Overachiever" :)

Tuesday - Feb 23 - I HATE MORNINGS.... this is Bruno.  He snuggles with me every night.  I mean SNUUGGGGLLLLEEEE... I love this little fur-boy!  Well, when the alarm goes off, its like he doesnt want me to get up - he cuddles closer to me. Of course, that means I have to hit the SNOOZE button.  But when I get up, he's not taking the lead.  He'll curl up in the blankets where its still warm.  He's no fool... this is the face I saw when I was leaving for work Tuesday morning... doesnt it just scream at you to get back in bed? 

Wednesday - Feb 23 - YOU RAISE ME UP!!!!! ... look at my tulips budding up!  I had to laugh at how they are lifting up the mulch.  I saw it & just started singing Josh Groban's "You raise me up..."  Look how strong those little tulip bulbs are... Oh, thank you Lord... the first signs of Spring!!!!

Thursday - Feb 24 - Finished off the first box... Dear Girl Scouts:  Why do you insist on making me cave in every year to your cookies?  Why do you send the cutest little faces to ask me if I'll buy a box?  Why do these cookies have to be so amazingly tasty?  ... I finished off this box of Samoa's... & gave the last 2 boxes we have to Ricky & told him to hide them from me.

Friday - Feb 25 - No Picture... & its amazing because it was the opportunity for so many pictures.  I picked up my race packet - went to my parents house - got everything ready for Saturday morning.. & yet, no picture.  I guess my brain was out of it...

Saturday - Feb 26 - I PR'ed... go me!!! .... Today was the first race of the Triple Crown of Running in our area.  Today's race was a 5k.  I did my best 5K ever... was so excited because the first mile I ran was also my FIRST 10 minute mile I ran!!!!!  I ended up knocking off 4.5 minutes off my time from last year... progress - I saw it today.

  1. Love those notecards! Where did you get them??
    And congrats on the new record!

  2. That artwork is incredible ~ and overnight, WOW!!

    Loving the notecards. I love to send handwritten notes myself. In the age of technology, there is just nothing like getting a good old fashioned card in the mail.

    Congrats on your PR in the race! That is awesome girl...hey, I couldn't even run even a 1/10th of a mile right now.

    And the Josh Groban song started going through my head when I read those words too! (hehe)

  3. That painting is amazing! I am a total office supply & stationery nerd too, I can't get enough.

    Hugs & love,

  4. That first picture: Are you kidding me? How awesome!

    Great week,

  8. My Molly is like Bruno. She has always snuggled up against my body...especially in the mornings when I need to get out of bed! We usually spend a solid five to ten minutes loving on each other before I reluctantly get out of bed.

    Oh, to win the lottery and be able to snuggle until 10 or so. :D

  9. oh, i want bruno...
