Week of Thanks, Week Fourteen

131. Lights at the end of long, dark, dreadful tunnels. 

132. This picture that another Ethiopia(n) loving America took of my favorite girl, and I die:

133. The words Relient K sings to me. Gosh, I love them. A. "If your words are true or not, I'll die trying to prove them." B. "But our hearts are all we'll get to bring so let's go ahead and make them worth something." Beautiful.

134. Finding something in Hobby Lobby. I heard that place is like the third level of hell or something. So when you find something, after 4 and a half days of searching, you can finally leave. (My favorite is when they ask you at check out, "Did you find everything okay?" Define "okay." My definition would include me walking past the manager with a dazed look on my face approximately 10 times and him asking me if I need help finding something, which he most certainly did not. But your definition includes employees who are more focused on restocking the clothes pins and doll furniture than helping someone find a stupid shadow box. My definition would also include labels on the aisles so I don't have to walk 6 miles to the end of one to realize that none of this junk is what I want. So no, I didn't find anything. Okay?) Thanks for letting me rant. paaahah

135. Going for a walk with Evan and my pups. From my house to downtown to the bank and to lunch. AND wearing Chacos because it's almost summer time!!!! (PS. Now my feet hurt SO bad. I haven't worn Chacos since Africa and my feet hate me. Sorry feet.)

136. Passing out from sheer tiredness before 10:30. We are 80.

137. "Friday" by Rebecca Black. How can you NOT love this song? Serious. You should just hear the 40 new renditions I have come up with. (PS. There is a "Friday" Pandora Station. It is terrible, don't waste your time.)

138. The things Evan says to me: "I will love you every second of every hour of every day of every week of every month of every year for ever and ever." I die. Or, on a lighter note. "I went to VBS at like a hundred different churches."-me "I know, you were super Christian."-Ev. I'm always crying. Either out of pure love, or silliness. But I'm always crying.

139. Evan branching out his restaurant choices and taking me to the new Thai restaurant everyone has been raving about. PS. now I'm raving. Love it.

140. Thrifting with Jamie, equals first of many new good things to come.

141. A baptism party. How awesome to celebrate this commitment with a freaking partay. Party people. And the first BBQ of the season. Of many. Because let's be honest, I heart Bee Bee Que's.

9 loves:

  1. I was listening to relient k on the way home from vegas :) that song always gets me!

    Anddddd I can't believe there is a Friday pandora station! That song is so terrible, but the joke is on us I think because she is probably making some serious cash off that stupid song!

    you should definitely get to Vegas in the future, once you look past the billions of business cards on the ground that have naked girls on them it's not half bad :p

  2. Just stumbled on your blog! It's SO CUTE. I love your background. haha. I don't know why, but it reminded me of twitter. I happen to like the little twitter bird, so totally a good thing! Haha.

    Andt his post is way adorable. It's so good to give weekly thanks - such a great idea. We used to have to do that aloud in our grade 6 guidance class. It was so silly. But, in retrospect, so important.

    Check out mine?

  3. I am starting my thankful list right now, and going to mention your sweet little blogggggg!

    Thanks for reminding me to be thankful.


  4. MMM.. now I'm craving thai! I'm trying to eat out less, but it sounds so good right now!

  5. hahahah, i love your dislike for hobby lobby. that place is a wreck, though, i agree.

    yay for lights after long dark tunnels. <e

  6. I think we've discussed my hate for the hob lob multiple times. It seriously would probably be my own personal hell. That's how intense my hate is.

  7. Hahahaha, by the way, I LOVE Friday. Well, actually, no. But I love hating it. It's so wonderful. And annoying. GAH CONFLICTING FEELINGS.

    You should check out the Bob Marley version. It actually sounds real, hahaha.
