Service with a Smile

This weekend we did a WHOLE lot, and most of it was close to home.

Friday night, I went to a 5th and 6th grade girls slumber party. A couple of my friends, Amanda and Ashley, are Bible study leaders for this group of girls, and I came along for the fun! We decorated pillow cases and played in makeup. It was so fun and made me miss those days. (But let's be real, I still play in makeup.) I stayed up way past my bedtime!

Here is my pillow case. Aww...

Saturday morning we went with our Care Group and worked on the flower beds of a wonderful couple in our church who have known each other since they were 7 years old and are about to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. They were so sweet and funny! I managed to knock myself in the head with a branch from one of their holly bushes and have a sweet little spot on my head as a reminder. This is one more example of why I don't enjoy nature a whole lot--my tendency to get injured, stung, or burned while I am attempting to enjoy it. But really, we had a great time and got to know several other couples in our Bible Fellowship class better, along with this couple who is leaving a legacy at our church. Such a great morning!

We rented Ocean's 13 last night because I've been wanting to see it since it came out. It was okay, but not the best. The laundry is done, I took a nap on Saturday and Sunday (recovering from the slumber party, so sad), and my closet and bathroom cabinets are organized and spotless. Brad has mowed and edged the yard, yet again. We are getting ready for our Seattle trip and looking for things to do. Suggestions are always welcome!


  1. Your pillow case turned out so cute! So glad that you were able to join us for all the FUN!!!

  2. Hope you have fun in Seattle. Ashley showed me the pillow case she made also. They are so cute. I'll have to remember that idea for Madison. :)

  3. You could go see Jimmy. He lives in Seattle. Are y'all going for business or pleasure?
