Soaking Up Those Rays!

20 06 2009



In true summer fashion, I had a delicious bowl of fruity oatmeal! My normal base topped with leftover fruit salad (grapes, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and pineapple) and some brown sugar. I put a scoop of DCD heaven on the side to have when the fruit was all gone. YUM! What a delicious bowl! 100_4759

Shortly after breakfast, I decided on 80 minutes of Dave Farmar yoga. Man, was this hard! I loved every second of it although there were moments when I wanted to scream. But, I do what he says about a billion times, breathe. Love him and it got the day started out right 🙂

After a quick shower, the boys were here. It’s been non-stop pool action and mario kart (sp? is it cart of kart :P) on our Wii. I am rocking the coconut mall. I know, impressive 😉

Lunch was eaten at separate stages. First up, the remaining bit of fruit salad. So yummy and FRESH! 100_4785

Sweet potato fries with ketchup! Mmmm! 100_4786



And then an un-pictured sandwich thin (whole wheat) spread with crack DCD. Hehe. Sorry no pic, the boys were there!

After eating, we jumped back in the pool and right now there just hanging out and playing on the Wii. This babysitting is super relaxing and lots easier than my last babysitting experience! Right now they’re enjoying pizza and watching a movie.

I’ve definitely gotten my tanning in today. Gotta love that warm sunshine!

Oh and before I “go” I want to show you my “new and improved” room. I’ve been working on it with my mom over the last couple days and I’m now in love with it. It’s much more me, much more calming, serene, the perfect yoga room. Every time I enter it it’s like ahhhh! 100_4767

Verse of the Day: Acts 20:24

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me.

As it turns out, we’re not having anyone over tonight! So it’s just a relaxing evening for me and maybe a grocery trip?? Hopefully 😀

Have a wonderful Saturday!

That verse is one of my favorites. I went to church today and the pastor was talking about a lot of people have a vacuum in their hearts. They try to fill the void with anything but Christ…like relationships, food, money, etc. But the vacuum sucks that crap up and makes it worse. Only Christ can make it better.

That was very condemning today and made me think!

I love your blog, by the way!

LOVE Dave Farmar! Omg, he is such a good instructor!!! I always feel so good (and exhausted) after one of his sessions.

Glad to hear babysitting went well this time. You deserved to have some good kids to look after! 🙂
