The Saturday 7

Almost didn't make it on time this week! Whew! That was a close one.

1. This week I got to meet an online friend for the first time.  Justin thinks I'm so crazy that I have all these friends online who I've never actually met in real life. Haha.  Anyway, Cara and I met through a Cornerstone blogring on xanga years ago.  We figured out that we did attend Cornerstone at the same time for about a year, but never remember meeting each other.  She lives in California, but was in town for a while, so we had plans to take our kids to Java Gym.  Unfortunately her daughter came down with a fever, so all didn't go as planned.  But Cara stopped by for a few minutes so we could officially meet - and to give Lucy a birthday present.  So sweet!  It was great to finally meet you, Cara.  Sorry we couldn't have talked longer!!

2. I got my schedule for the next two months from my boss this week.  From now until the end of July I am working all 2 day weeks - with the exception of one 3 day week.  Uhhhhhh, what?  It'll be great to have half the summer off . . . except when it comes time to pay the bills! Haha. God will provide. He always does.

3. Justin and I went on a date tonight! He's been so busy with yardwork and helping my parents roof their house that I feel like I never see him anymore.  We went with Lucy to Qdoba and met up with Libby.  Libby took Lucy home and Justin and I went to see a movie.  We saw Something Borrowed.  I love Kate Hudson and Jim Krasinski, but I hated the movie!! It had such an awful message: essentially do what you want no matter who gets hurt.  Stupid!!  Oh well.  We enjoyed popcorn and hanging out.

4. Who else is excited for the Bachelorette this season??? Woot woot!  I'm actually not crazy about Ashley, and I'm already annoyed with the previews for the season, but of course I'll watch it.  Guilty pleasure.

5. I re-arranged Lucy's clothes yesterday to make room for some more summer stuff.  I filled an entire drawer with skirts, so decided to count them : 21 - 9 of which are jean! Haha! I had been thinking I need to buy her a few more pairs of shorts, but I seriously just think she'll wear skirts all summer!

6. Lucy got her first big injury today.  She pulled open a drawer right into her mouth and gashed her gums.  As soon as I picked her up, I could see blood pouring into her mouth.  Poor baby. :-( She's ok, though. No major damage. :-)

7. I gave Lucy eggs for the first time in months today. She's had them a couple times before, but it's been a while.  She didn't like them, today but she did eat a couple bites.  A couple hours later, I gave her a bath and noticed she has red dots all over her belly.  Hmmm. She still had them at bedtime tonight.  Think she's allergic? I hope not. She's never had a problem with anything with eggs in it.  Can you be allergic to straight eggs but not eggs in stuff? Oh boy. We'll see.


  1. It was great to see you! I wish we had been able to spend the morning together as planned but it was great to see you and get to hold Lucy for a second:). Jay thinks I'm a little crazy to meet people online too...but then he has to admit that he has met people in his field online and become friends in person eventually:)

    Brooklyn was allergic to eggs for a while too. Super common, super common to grow out of - and, yes, she didn't react to them in things but would break out if she had them just plain. Strange but true:). Hopefully she'll grow out of it quickly!

  2. Whew, that will be a nice work schedule, but I hope it doesn't stress you out money-wise! You are right- God WILL provide.

    Aw, the first bloody injury is scary :( Glad she's ok!

    I hope she's not allergic to eggs! If she is I hope she grows out if it quickly.
