The Saturday 7

1. Justin and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary this week. We spent one night in Petoskey last weekend, ate good food, shopped the cute little boutiques (and marveled at the prices!), lounged on the beach, slept in!, and Justin even got to do a tiny bit of fishing. We took the scenic route on the way up (which didn't end up being that scenic) and realized anew that I am a terrible traveler. I got reeeeeeal grumpy after about 2 hours in the car. Needless to say, we took the more expedient route home.

2. After a very mild summer, we finally had some hot weather this week! We spent lots of time swimming and Lucy really got the hang of it. Until this week, she could swim flawlessly in the shallow end of the pool, but was terrified to try the deep end. Now, she zips right through it!

3. So today is the first day of August - which means my 30th birthday is in just over 2 months. After getting off to a great start, I'm not sure I'm going to complete my 30 Before 30 in time. I still have 7 books to go. And I've hardly read any Christian Living books like I intended. They just take me so long to get through. Time to get crack a lackin' . . .

4. The first of August also means that Lucy is starting school this month - in like 23 days. Holy cow. We went school shopping one day this week. I let her pick out a backpack, lunch box, and gym shoes. She is the strangest shopper. We got to the backpack aisle, she pointed to the first one she saw, and said "I'll take that one." I tried to show her a few others, but she stuck with her original. And she picked out the ugliest sneakers in the whole store. I was a mean mom and told her that she couldn't have them. She said, "I'm not you, Mommy. People like different things." Lol. Lucky for me, they didn't have her size in the ugly ones, so we compromised on just plain pink. Sidenote: she wears a size 12! I was shocked! I also bought her a bunch of skirts for school since she refuses to wear jeans. I made sure to buy the kind with shorts built in, so she doesn't flash her underwear to everyone at her Christian school. Haha.

5. I've kind of loved all the outrage over the Planned Parenthood debacle on facebook lately. I hope it's opening people's eyes and creating a platform to reveal how treacherous abortion really is. But then, I realized, that 90% of my facebook feed is made up of Christians and I doubt the rest of the world is really that riled up about it. Unbelievable.

I really have nothing else to say. We're just enjoying the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. A lot of swimming and lounging by the pool and hanging out with friends. Nothing too noteworthy. I hope you all are enjoying your summer as much!!

  1. Abby doesn't start until the 31st, but I know the feeling. She did the same thing with her backpack and lunch box! And I'm looking at size 13/1 shoes for her this year... gulp. She doesn't like jeans either, though I tried to make her wear them at least one day a week last year. She survived in dresses and leggings. And so it all begins!! :)
