This week has been really good! It started off with a day of babysitting my friend's two sweet little boys! I worked a little bit, had lunch with a lady from church (to talk about a Fall Bible study ~ more on that later!), took the kids to the pool, played games with the youth group at the park, took the kids to the beach & helped with some VBS stuff at the church. Yesterday, Elly & I went to see Soul Surfer with my fried Angela & two of her daughters. Last night, the kids both spent the night at friends' houses, so Christopher & I went out for coffee! Then I made him watch Life As We Know It with me {which, for the record, has to be way better than the movie he wants us to see when it comes out!}

This morning, I had hoped to sleep in. I even got this cute sleep eye mask:

I was thinking that maybe I could sleep later if I didn't realize that the sun was out. Unfortunately, Pepper is well aware of the time of day...By around 6:15 each morning, she scratches on my side of the bed for me to pick her up & put her in bed with me. She'll get under the covers & snuggle up against me, but she doesn't stay there for long. She's super restless & jumps down, only to want back up a few minutes later. She's a spoiled brat, and I don't know what to do with her! The thing is that if she really tries, she actually can jump up there. So I shouldn't have to pick her up at all! I've tried to ignore her, but she just keeps scratching. Do you think they make sleep eye masks for dogs?

Anyways, I ended up with an entire day without kids today. Since I was awake before 7, I was able to spend time with the Lord & ride about 7-8 miles on my bike. I know I just complained about not sleeping in, but I really do prefer to do both of those things outside before it gets too hot. I also got to plan some scrapbook pages for next week! The kids are going to my brother's for the week, so I'm going to Jana's parents with her & her kids. I'm also planning a meet-up with RRMama!!! I'm SO excited to meet her! :)

As for the song...Tricia Brock (from Superchick) released a new worship album this week, and I've really been enjoying it! I already knew today's song, so I think I listened to it more than the others because I could sing along with it. It's good stuff, though! I don't have just one favorite line, so I'll leave you with a big chunk of the song!

This world wants to steal Your hope from my heart
But mercy's stronger still than my struggles are
Your love is nothing less than a life laid down for me
And a place where I can lean

So I will lean upon the cross
I will lean into Your love
Your Spirit's living in me, alive in me
I will sing when there is no song
In the dark, Lord Your light is strong
Your Spirit's living in me, Your Spirit's living in me
So I will lean, I will lean


I'm off to see my baby brother! I hope y'all have a super great weekend!!

Okay I have lots to comment on 1. I heard about Life As We Know It because several people told me about the giant cupcake back when I did Sedona's party. 2. I don't know if you know Chelsey Rhine (she was one of Kristen Rose's bridesmaids and I photographed her wedding) I just found out through their blog (which is on my blog roll by the way) that her husband has cancer :( I was so bummed, but it looks like it's low risk, so that is good.
3. You calling Pepper a brat made me laugh
4. Have fun meeting a blog person live, I have always wanted to do that :)

I can't wait to meet up!! SO EXCITED! I had to put that first, I know what you mean about the dog. Cookie will climb in our bed and want under the covers. She has her own cover on our bed but always wants under ours.
