First thing's first. Here's this week's Project Scripture verse:
"And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:20.
Happy memorizing! :)
We had a pretty busy weekend, actually. On Friday night, Micah drove over to Noteworthy Home's warehouse to pick up our entertainment center for the game room. Unfortunately, it had started raining as he got there, so he had to drive back over on Saturday morning to get it. While he was gone, I had to stay at the house to be there to let the electricians in. (Although technically, because my stepdad is so wonderfully precious, I could have left while he took care of everything, but we had a fun day hanging out and visiting.)
We had them (1) install four new recessed lights in our game room, (2) re-wire the cable from an external wall to an internal wall, and (3) install outlets on the wall so we could mount our TV. So we now have all of the bare-bones pieces up there (couch, TV, entertainment center, pool table, dart board) and just need to get to the pretty stuff! I'll post pictures soon so you guys can see our progress.
After they finished, we met friends for sushi, which was delicious as always. Yesterday after church, my mom and stepdad came back over for lunch and brought this little cutie with them.
(This little girl is on the move! Getting pictures of her that didn't look like this was darned near impossible. And pardon my $.50 socks from Gap. Believe me... I do understand that socks with leggings isn't the cutest.)
My brother and sister-in-law are in Cheyenne to see some sort of rodeo championship, and all the grandparents are getting a day or two to keep Miss Stella. I was so glad to have gotten a whole afternoon with her (and my sweet momma) while the boys worked on mounting the TV.
And I'm sure you can guess what I was doing last night...
Unfortunately, because so many girls were out of town/busy, girls' night sort of fizzled out at the last minute. So poor Micah had to keep me company.
I am so happy she chose Jef. I was rooting for him and wondered if she'd be smart enough to look past the steamy kisses with Arie to see how perfect Jef was for her. Way to be a grown-up, Emily! (But let me just state for the record that I don't actually harbor any delusions that this is an always-and-forever kind of relationship. Maybe they'll make it work and maybe they won't. But that doesn't change the fact that I love watching it all unfold. Or that I hate myself for loving it so much.)
This week looks to be fairly light and breezy at work (a rare luxury), so I'm planning on taking it easy before things start getting crazy again. Hope you all have a fabulous Monday!
