Miscellany Monday

1. My baby boy has kicked his cuteness up a notch. He had his first Krispy Kreme. As it turns out, he eats them like we are all dying to on the inside, but human manners prevent us from doing so. He also has figured out how to say wheeeeeeeeeee. Most things all day long get launched into some sort of motion, so that he can accompany it with a wheeeeeeeeeeeee. It makes me want to join in and twirl.

2. I am on day 11 {100% success so far} of my 100 day challenge that I am doing. Contrary to popular belief, you can go to Krispy Kreme to turn in certificates for free donuts that have been screaming to be used since last Halloween and not eat even fleck of frosting. Yes, I did smell the donut. I am not ashamed.

3. Everything is cuter in Mason Jars. I fed 30 women these desserts this past week. Did not have a lick of them either, but I heard they were good. Thrifty’s vanilla ice cream layered with Pineapple topping and Caramel. Finish it off with some whipped cream, a sprinkle of brown sugar, and some little chocolate shells. Put a little umbrella in it and you have yourself one yummy tropical sundae.

4. VBS kicked off this week. I spent a lot of time hanging kites, airplanes, and all things related to SKY. Three of my four can attend and serve. I sneak in everyday into the back, just enough to catch some of the closing worship. I love watching the kids worship Jesus and the adults get to be kids for the week. It gives me the serious warm fuzzies and it makes my baby clap and dance.

5. My dreams of glow in the dark half marathon medals are postponed until 2013. My running partner has a heel injury that has forced her to take a bit of time off from running. We have rescheduled our first half to this October. Can’t wait.

6. It’s less than 48 hours until my birthday.

7. The neighborhood kids call me mom. It is adorable, but at the same time it makes a girl feel old. I don’t know why this makes me feel old, exactly. I tried to figure it out, but then I got bored and stopped. Some things are better left unknown.

8. I am being interviewed for a book that is in in the works by an actual writer. My story may or may not get used, but seriously, how fun is that? It is about eating REAL food.

9. I have been contemplating what kind of damage I would do to myself if I joined them? Can a forty year old effectively slip ‘n slide?

10. I recently saw Wicked for the first time, I just bought tickets today for a Kayaking trip under a full moon on a nearby lake, and I am beginning the downstairs repainting marathon. Which of these things is not like the other?

Happy Monday.
