sneak peek | seniors - three cousins.

I posted about taking Sarah, Jacob and Austin's senior portraits.  But, I forgot to mention...they're all cousins.  My cousins.  We decided to take all of their pictures at the same time.  So, I had to get some of the three of them together!






a perfect thursday.

The boys and I had a perfect Thursday a few weeks ago.

It was a gorgeous, seventy degree day at the beginning of March.
Thank you, North Carolina! 

 We took a ride with the sunroof open...





 With sandals and pink, spring toes.
Okay, well...I was the only one with shoes or pink toes.  I'm sure Jordan is thankful that I didn't paint the boys toes pink :)



Jamming out to Seeds of Praise.  


I heard of the Seeds Family Worship from Jami's blog, Hello from the Natos
They are fabulous!
It is scripture put to music.  The boys got Seeds of Praise and Seeds of Purpose for Valentine's Day :)  
We listen to them anytime when we're in the car and I've already caught myself singing scripture!  I can't wait to hear their sweet voices singing along someday.

We took a quick pit-stop at Starbucks...




For a decaf, carmel frappuccino.
Yummmm.



And then headed to Barnes and Noble. 

I got to drool over their endless inventory of colorful moleskine journals....






Tate stayed awake to enjoy perusing with me.


Crews was not as entertained...



I bought The Hunger Games and a new journal for church!

Two of my favorite things!  
A new book AND a fresh journal!  


That evening, when Jordan got off work, we went for a walk downtown.







Again, Tate was wide-eyed.  Crews slept :)






I would definitely see this as a perfect Thursday! 

Hopefully there will be many more of these to come!

cirque du soleil.

We had the best time last night!  We went to see Alegria for my Valentine's Day present.


We rushed to get ready once we got home from work.

Worker Man was waiting in the truck for me when I made him jump out and take a couple of self-timer pics.  We never have pictures together so I'm trying to work on this.   But, clearly, I'm going to have to get a little better about the self-timer.

Terrible background, blurry camera strap showing at the bottom and the second pose?  Well, I had to crop it because we were standing in the most awkward pose ever.  I will get better at that part.  Promise!

And maybe I'll get better about opening my eyes during pictures.
And maybe I'll start wearing lipstick more often.
And maybe I'll get a tan at some point this year. 



So we rush to Greensboro.
Decide we have enough time to eat a quick supper.  So we stop at Moe's.
Scarf our food down.

And rush over to the coliseum because Worker Man hates to be late. 
We arrive at 6:30.  With the show starting at 7.


We get there and here's what we see:


Not a good sign.

[This is where the pictures stop - no cameras were allowed].

So we laugh hysterically and head inside.  It's not much better in there.  There were a few people here and there but not many at all!  We realized we might have made a mistake.  I tell Worker Man, "I thought this was like a big deal" and he agreed.  We also noticed that almost everyone else that was there was 60 years old or older.

We sit for a few minutes and then at five till 7:00 we run up so Worker Man can buy a $4 bottled drink.  [Sheesh].

We come back down and I'm wondering why the lights weren't dimming or anything.

Look at our tickets. 

The show doesn't start until 7:30.
Whoops.

But, after the show finally did start [more people did get there.  it wasn't slammed but a lot more people were there than at 6:30] it was amazing!

My favorites were the contortionists and a hula hoop girl.  But everything was so good!

I would definitely recommend going!

Don't forget the giveaway ends tonight!
I'll announce the winner on Monday!

Happy Friday!
