"It's a Great Day to Be Alive"

(by Darrell Scott) It's a Great Day to Be Alive - Aloha from Nashville



I've had such a great week, & it's not even over yet! I already mentioned a little bit in my last post, but there's a little more awesomeness to tell y'all about. First, the promised pictures...

This is where I had my quiet time a couple of days & where I wrote my last blog post:


& this is what I was privileged to enjoy when I looked up:




As always, I had a wonderful time at Jana's parents' house! Her sister came over every day, which is super great! {Though she did start up a little drama with Felicity on facebook! Ha ha!} In addition to what I mentioned in my last post, we also went swimming & relaxed in the hot tub. I got some scrapbooking done, but I was more focused on relaxing than I usually am when I'm there. So I actually got about 7 hours of sleep each night! {Can you believe that, Amy?!} Considering the fact that I normally get a total of 7 hours of sleep for the entire weekend, y'all should be proud of me! And since I usually give the following totals, I'll go ahead & do it this time, too ~ even though our week was entirely different than a normal scrapbook retreat weekend! My total count for the trip:

  • Pages completed: 34
  • Hours slept: 21
  • Pounds gained: 1.5

On Wednesday, I got to meet up with RRMama for lunch!! This was my first time to ever meet a blog friend, and I was SO excited! I already knew that we could totally be IRL friends, and I was right! She did a great job summarizing our meet up on her blog. I think the only thing I would add is that she is beautiful, inside and out. And she gives a great hug! {♥}

I took a few pictures, but I kept getting too much of a glare &/or chopping off our heads! :P

I can't wait to see her again!!

I got home yesterday afternoon, and my baby puppy was so happy to see me that she was crying! She usually just cries for Chris, but apparently she missed her mama! Since the kids were still at my brother's, my mister & I went out for dinner and watched a movie on Netflix last night. We're going to pick the kids up tonight & watch their performance. I don't even think I mentioned what they're doing at my brother's this week, but I'll tell you all about it tomorrow!

That yard looks wonderful! Okay, I've seen you write about Jana trips, but if you don't mind me asking how are you all connected? Just curious.
