not me monday

a few things me and the fam DID NOT do this week...

i DID NOT go with 54 high school kids to big stuf camps this last week. i was NOT in utter awe and wonder during worship on the beach with 1500 kids.

in the middle of dinner, jada DID NOT say, "i love lamp" and then just smile. we DID NOT die laughing remembering steve carrell from anchor man!

i am NOT totally exhausted and sicky sicky from being at big stuff with 1500 kids...i am NOT old.

jada DID NOT moon her friends on the 4th at our friends bbq and tell them "look at this". yep, my kids would never do that!

brooke DID NOT learn a new {bad word} from a neighbor boy this week...apparently, the da** fries were too hot...and not the beaver dam kind either. a long convo DID NOT ensue about words and cussing...a first for her. she really had no idea...she DID NOT say, "so i don't say da** like i don't say stupid?".

i DID NOT go on my first high school ministry trip as a leader after almost 20 years with one of my own kids as a student...weird and awesome and so fulfilling.
i will NOT turn 40 this week...what in the world is that???

ryan DID NOT take care of the kids this week when he was not at work...and i am NOT completely thankful for a husband who loves to be with his kids and finds it fun to just BE with them.

paige and i DID NOT do a whirlwind shopping trip in 30 minutes...spending $115 and saving $65 in discounts and coupons!

i was NOT a bridesmaid in blake and abby's weeding this last week...i was NOT totally blessed by how awesome they are and how their purity speaks volumes.
i also DID NOT have a fab up-do...that i ended up wearing on the charter bus to panama city
florida for 18 hours...

i DID NOT preach at 2 high school services yesterday with a voice that sounded much like a teenage boy starting puberty. good thing god is way bigger than that silly voice!

and now, i am NOT fully exhausted and in desperate need of starbucks and a nap. so for now, enjoy your monday and stop at mck mama's for some more fun!

Ok, so I'm impressed by how much living you pack into life... but I gotta say, as a woman, I'm especially impressed at your shopping and savings. (yes, that's what jumped out at me.) =)
