what's in my bag?

1. old fake retro wallet
2. 18 gift cards to Lowes/Home Depot. I know, it's pretty out of control.
3. delish gum that sadly looses its flavor in about 12 miutes
4. cortizone cream because a few weeks ago I had about 80 (for real) mosquito bites.
5. lemon hand sanitizer
6. various lip products
7. red and blue nail polish
8. various head ache medicine
9. pens and checkbook
10. pin up girl compact
11. keys 
12. sunglasses

Remember when I had access to an awesome camera (not just crappy phone cameras) and was able to make this, this, this, this and this?

summer days

The last few days via my sub-par camera phone.

Ray making Big Brown look presentable.

I made this sign for our wedding and decided we needed to keep it up.

The Suwannee River is so sad and low right now. Ray actually grew up on this river. Also, for all of you living outside of Florida, this river was the inspiration for our state song Old Folks at Home.

A peek into our record room + all of our beautiful wedding center pieces. We aren't really sure what to do with them now. Any ideas?

Glorious dinner at home. PTL.

the little things

Home made iced coffee (in a normal hot coffee cup) is saving my life right now. Among paper work, angry patients, moody co-workers, schedule changes and 237462387 phone calls the iced coffee (made by my sweet husband)helps remind me that it's going to be okay. Coffee soothes me... and then later makes me jittery. We'll see how I feel this afternoon. =)

What keeps you sane during crazy days at work?

most ridiculous man award...

My husband has spent the last 10 minutes laughing out loud at this picture he made... of himself.
Sexy, huh? ;)

All in all, it was a pretty great weekend.

wedding guest book

Our photo guest book turned out pretty great. Here are a few fun ones:

My heart:

Let me start off by saying I REALLY love where I am right now, as far as life goes. And as much as I miss things, I would still rather be here, in bed, drinking a smoothie, next to my husband who is snoring. =) This is my second summer not working at a Fuge Camp. While I know I'm right where I'm supposed to be, my heart still aches a little for camp.

I miss my camp friends. They are exactly what you needs after a 15 hour day of hot crazyness.

I miss my students. At one point, I was them. I went to camp as a student and my life and view of ministry/evangelism/world vision was changed.
I miss my site babies. I miss sitting outside for hours in 100 degree weather playing parachute games, coloring with chalk, and telling them about Jesus. I miss seeing my campers burdened for site kids. I miss seeing my site kids run up to our vans as we pull up, knowing that despite what's going on at home, we will love them.

Hey cute kitchen!

Can you tell we love pyrex? And that my husband loves spider man? And that maybe we don't do dishes every night?

What's in...

Cottage Girl posted something similar to this earlier today. I decided to follow suit.

What's in...

My fridge: 239483 sodas the bands didn't drink this weekend.
My freezer: 4 bags of frozen hand picked peaches and 3 bags of blueberries.
My car's CD player: Sadly, it doesn't work. But 97.1 is a pretty good oldies station.
My night stand: makeup bag, Holy Bible, Breakfast at Tiffany's, earplugs, random jewelry.
My purse: Geeze... SO MUCH JUNK. Wallet, checkbook, pens, gum, chapstick, etc.
My DVD player: we finished Walking Dead, so we'll probably start watching Deadwood again.
My head: So many things. More to come on this front.
My heart: Again, so so many things. My church, my friends, my town, weird/broken relationships.

A few things:

Last week we picked peaches, blueberries, nectarines and plums. Hello summer!

This past weekend my church hosted the extreme tour. At one point during Saturday evening I think there may have been 50 people in my house. Here are some of them in my front yard.

Some of my favorite boys, The Flamigos had a concert.

I found this way over priced (and kind of beat up) Enid Collins purse at a local antique shop.

Wanna know some good news?! Next week I start working only 4 days a week... which is probably the best news of my life. 3 day weekend every weekend? Yes please.

The maids

I love these girls so so much. All of them have had a different significant impact on my life. I can't fully express how thankful I am to have them.
