Here it is!
Pretty Hot And Tempting Christ-Oriented Women
Kittyhox came really close with Pretty Hot and Tempting Christ-Only Women, so I will be sending her a copy of Get Out of That Pit by none other than my mother. Unless she already has that, in which case I'll figure something else out.
We had so much fun with Curt's mom and grandparents over the weekend. We're very thankful for their willingness to make the long drive to come see us. We will make the trip to Missouri in about a month. We did indeed visit Sprinkles and JD's within a three hour span. We still have half a coconut cupcake and six chocolate chip cookies in the kitchen. Hopefully they will get stale before we can eat them all! We spent some quality time at Northpark Mall where I hit the jackpot at the Lucky store. They were having an insane sale! Basically, it was 75% off most of the store. I bought two skirts for me, matching long-sleeve t-shirts for Curt and Jackson that will be so cute in the fall, and a British flag track jacket for Jackson. It is all out of control cute.
So have y'all gone to see Evan Almighty yet? We took advantage of having a free babysitter on Saturday night and went to see it. Curtis and I laughed so hard. The robe just sent me over the edge. But seriously, someone needs to build an ark in the homeland because it has not stopped raining in days!
Our church's preschool water day was rained out last week and my friends and I were very disappointed. So we planned a Monday playdate at Bedford Splash. After all this rain, we were really heartbroken to hear predictions that this week would be just as wet. We surmised that if it was raining at 11 a.m. we would not go. But lo, there was blue sky over our little piece of the Metroplex at 11:00. Glory! Two hours, all I wanted was two hours of swimming! Jackson and I hadn't gotten in a real pool together all summer and, hello, it's already July! Oh my gosh, how is it July?
The Lord gave us exactly two hours at the kiddie water park and it was too much fun. Jackson was very happy to be there and proudly displayed his perma-grin. Thank God, he did not blow chunks. He did not stop moving the entire time we were there. He even got bored with the water and wanted to run between the lounge chairs. I don't think I finished more than two conversations with my girlfriends, whose toddlers obediently played within ten feet of where their mothers placed them. I've learned through Gymboree and other experiences like today that my son likes to do his own thing. He also likes for Mommy to bounce him around in the lazy river.
Tonight I was as happy as can be sitting on the couch, my chlorine-smelling arms wrapped around my baby boy, whose sweet little hair smelled like Coppertone. Gotta love summer.
