We have started a “tradition” at our house of having smoothies for breakfast on Wednesday mornings so here is the menu this morning. It takes a while because everyone wants something a little different.

A pirates life’s for me
Too tired to post pictures tonight, just wanted to let everyone know I am still alive after being held hostage by about 12 little pirates today. It was a great party. Drew is a big boy. I am off to batten the hatches and sleep with one eye open, mateys. I am so tired I may close both eyes tonight.
It’s Party time
Today is the big Pirate Party. Can’t believe my “baby” is turning four. Better get busy. Balloons to order, guacamole to make, treasure hunt to plan for and house to clean. Pictures coming soon.
Great book for talking to girls
Here is an awesome book that you should get if you have a “tween” daughter. It’s called The Body Book by Nancy Rue. The book is part of the Lily series and there is a related fiction book for every non-fiction book. The book is very well written and is right on the level of 8-12 year old girls. It’s a book that talks about growing up in a direct way without giving “too much” info to freak her out and it does it in a Godly way. I HIGHLY recommend the book! It is great for a mom and daughter to go through together and then girls can read it again on their own. Emma and I had a beautiful time going over it together. She is turning into such a little lady. I am planning to get her some of the other Lily books soon.
I am excited about our date night tonight. Mike and I are going to Winston. We have to do a little shopping and then dinner somewhere. Thanks to Joe Sangl we have our envelopes to keep us under control. We’ll be eating cheap so we don’t use all the eating out money. We didn’t do a seperate date night envelope – maybe that’s a thought for next month. So since it’s cheap eating we are trying to decide Chipotle or Mellow Mushroom?

We will not forget
Yummy summer time!
I made this cake last night and thought I would share the recipe. It tasted like summer
On our road trip to Charleston to see my sister and her family Drew decided he wanted to drive. Here was the conversation (I was driving)
Make people feel special – and they’ll be back
This is a great post I just read. If you know anything about Newspring Church you will know that they are crazy about volunteers and making people feel welcome. So Cornerstoners – read this before Sunday and lets make sure our visitors (and regulars) find a place that feels authentic and a place that they feel like they are our special guest. Most people decide if they are coming back way before they hear the sermon. Let’s be known as the church where people can come and leave with a smile on there face because they feel like we were truly glad they were there. See ya on Sunday – with a smile on your face!
