We Call it Living

I confess that this is not an ordinary Friday post. :) I don't think I've gone without confessing on a Friday in a long, long time! I was up until 4:00 am this morning blogging. That's right. Four in the flipping morning. I am whooped! For real this time, there will be a special post about a very special person on Monday. I don't want to publish it until a few others get a chance to look at it first. So until then...Happy Friday!

Peek-a-boo! Gracie sees you. :)

Eric started his new class this week. We are now officially experiencing daddy-less Wednesdays. The day of the week changes with every semester these days. I have officially begun working on Evie's birthday party - woot! Kicking it into full gear this weekend. And we officially begin graduation party season tomorrow. Here's a big congratulations to a few lovely ladies we know who will be graduating this evening: To Crystal, Kimberly, Stephanie, and Emily - you are beautiful young women of God! Good luck in all that you do after high school and well beyond!

The girls had a lot of fun yesterday morning at our play date with the boys. :) I took a few pictures, but for whatever reason my computer isn't recognizing the files - lame. Luke, I am sorry that my daughter does not know how to properly play baseball. She is a mess. And Carson, Gracie's paci stealing is merely a flirting tactic. Homegirl doesn't even like paci's. :)

Excuse me, I am being heralded by my older daughter. Apparently her little sister is "fishing in the toilet!"

Alright, so I can't help myself. Here are a few confessions from this week that I need to get off of my chest.

I confess that we ate puppy chow aka: muddy buddies for breakfast this morning. Hey - chex, peanut butter, chocolate...can't be any worse than most sugar cereals out there. Right? Haha.

I confess that our carpets are so disgusting from little kids spilling everything under the sun that I am embarrassed to have Evie's party here in a couple of weeks. Ugh. How many times to I need to confess that I want my carpets cleaned before the cleaning fairy shows up?

I confess that spiders seriously give me the heebs - especially when they come creeping out of my dishwasher. For real. Dis. Gus. Ting.

I confess that the last time I shared my own faith on my own blog I got the cold shoulder from several people and hate mail for months afterwards. And guess what? I'm getting ready to do it again really soon. You know what I say to the haters - BRING IT. :)

And finally, I confess that I've been dancing in my underwear to this song for days. I can't think of any better way to sum up my feelings lately. Sometimes in this world the things you stand for, the things you believe in, and the things you would die for are not the most popular things. Sometimes you are a dark horse in this world. And sometimes, you need to hear this rally cry to keep you going through it. If you were a friend of John Bradshaw, make sure to take a listen. This song is for him today. He was definitely one of those dark horses:



What do you stand for?
Have a great weekend, friends!
