Weekend Non-Causal

 This was the outfit that I wore to church today.  Can I tell you what a miracle it is that we even get to church?  We seldom get there on time, but even getting there 10 minutes late is hard to do.  Today was especially crazy and right before we left McKay smeared Gogurt all over Palmer's pants.  Not to mention I asked all of the boys to get ready so I could get ready.  I called "alright, everyone get in the van (yep I am one of those ultra sexy van drivers...you know it!!) My 6 year old comes out of his room still in his pajamas...it was definitely an ordeal.


 Has anyone been watching Oscar Pistorius in the Olympics?  I have watched him race twice and he is so inspirational to me.  If anyone doesn't know, he is the one that runs with prosthetic legs.  It is amazing!  He is so incredible and is one of the many stories that just makes you want to dream bigger and go harder in everything you do. 

 I hope you all have a lovely Monday!  I'd better go to bed we have tennis bright and early...the Olympics is definitely ruining my ability to get to bed at a decent hour.

  9. I usually get to bed around 930 to 10, thanks to the Olympics I have been going to bed at midnight every single night...I'm definitely an Olympic fiend. I've loved reading all your comments on the Olympics - I watched Oscar Pistorius last night for the first time and it was incredible, I love his outlook on life. Your outfit is great, perfect for church, and even if you were late at least you arrived fashionably! The skirt looks great with your polka dot top :)
