Unedited Monday Thoughts...

Here's a compilation of my thoughts over the past few days:

I really want need some lululemon pants. Tried a few (hundred) pairs on over the weekend and now I know what I have been missing out on all this time. My apologies to our bank account.

We are FINALLY getting a little vaca time in this Summer after all!! Carlsbad here we come! Counting down the days, minutes, seconds until Aug 8!

It's been really rainy here, which I LOVE. It's one of the best most monsoony (can that pass as a word?) Summers I have experienced in all of my 9 years in AZ. Loving. It.

While cleaning out my closet I have noticed that 1. I need to clean it out a lot more often and 2. I own a lot of the same style of lace tops. Do you ever buy the same piece over and over w/ out realizing it? Or do I just have issues?! One thing is for sure, I am a sucker for lace.

Other thoughts that need no explanation are as follows:




I need a pedicure.

Also, Is this not the cutest picture you ever did see? We got caught in the rain after eating some delicious pizza from Grimaldi's with our friends the other night..

Happy Monday to all!

Lets Catch Up!

I have been an absent blogger for nearly 2 whole months! Where does the time go people??!

We have been having a great (although very VERY hot) Summer. We've been hanging out with our church's youth groups (Jr.High & HighSchool) visiting water parks, having some crayyyzee parties that also involve drenching one another in water.. Right now in AZ you can choose being inside in the AC or being outside submerged in water, somehow someway. Anyways, hanging with the youth and sharing Jesus has been AMAZING. Even better than I had even anticipated.

Then there is our little Princess girl Joya, who last Monday turned 3! This has stirred up quite a bit of emotion. Our baby is not really a baby anymore, and she is sure to remind me of this daily. "Hey mom I am 3 now, I am not your baby anymore...silly mommy huh?!" She keeps us as putty in her hands and makes us laugh really hard while she's at it. We were driving home just the other night, when I looked back to see her face full of contemplation.. "Mom, when I was a baby in your tummy, I pooped in there right?!" Seriously, she was really authentically curious. And now this topic of conversation is one that she likes to bring up frequently. Such a deep thinker that little Joya.

As for us, a few months ago I wrote about some repositioning God was doing, and the resistance on my part during the process. I remember praying and praying for the day where things would look how I see them to be ideal or "normal" (whatever that means). During this time I am so thankful to have caught revelation that sometimes, when things go awry God is simply reminding us of our consistant need for Him on a daily basis. When I am weak, then I am strong! In these times our full reliance on Him positions us for breakthrough after breakthrough. And because of that, I wouldn't trade any hardship I (or we as a family) have endured. God is faithful through it all, and we are blessed!

Hope you guys are having a great Summer!! I hope to be posting a heck of a lot more than once every other month..
