THE CONCEPT: TEN RANDOM SHOTS OF OUR DAY
#1 - Pajama day at school in celebration of the letter "P". Yes, she was disappointed that I wouldn't let her wear her silky Rapunzel nightgown, but it's too short. And I didn't want her showing off her Princess and the frog panties, so we needed pajamas with pants. Besides, pants start with "P". Pizza and pop served at school for a special lunch. (Yes, pop. My northern roots are showing.) She refused to try the pop. She's never had a single sip of soda in her entire life. How long can I keep this going? Oma pulled a late night baking session so Ems could take pumpkin bread to school to share with her friends. After all, P day only comes once a year. (Thanks, Oma!)
#2 - Breakfast on the go-go-go-go-go. Lots of running today!
#3 - Bug day. Ugly got his crickets. I'm terribly in love with his spikes. I adore him. Even when he's crunching crickets. I never knew I would feel fondness toward a reptile, but he's one cool cat.
#4 - Pioneer Woman's chicken salad. Here's what I know about her recipe.... I left out the dill. That's for pickles. Also, I wouldn't add the cayenne again. It was too weird. But her suggestion for adding a smidge of brown sugar? Brilliant. And delicious.
#5 - The worldview teacher nixed our costume. No chaps to a formal ball. I'm crushed. Partly because he was a million kinds of smashing in his chaps, and partly because I have exactly one day to come up with a Plan B. Nothing about my schedule tomorrow lends itself to inventing cowboy attire from the early 1900's. Drats.
#6 - Rocks and minerals. Loving it. Did you know the Empire State Building is made of Limestone? You do now.
#7 - Thankful for my new Beth Moore Bible study. Digging into the Word with my Mom and three friends by my side. It gets no better than that.
#8 - The Buzzard home before I needed to leave for church. A rare and wonderful occurrence during this incredibly busy season at his work.
#9 - New. And so super snazzy. I can hardly wait to fill it to the brim tomorrow morning.
#10 - Crafting. If only I felt a need to do laundry and dust the way I feel a pressing need to play with felt and fabric scraps.
