Monday's Musings

You ever have one of those weekends that flies by so quickly that you can't believe it really even came ?? Well, this weekend, we had one of those!

My daughter had her senior pictures this weekend and she did awesome, despite the fact that the wind was an absolute battle! She had requested some pictures taken in water so our photographer took us to one of our local lakes and let me just tell you...The wind was blowing like crazy. Her assistant and myself were standing in the water (which was freezing by the way LOL) holding a Shield, to keep Jenna from squinting from the sunshine and WOW!! It took every single bit of body strength we had! Then she took us a an open field and jenna took some gorgeous shots. These pics were very special because she wore My Daddy's cowboy hat. When he passed away that was something Jenna wanted of his so to see these pics just brought tears to my eyes. The next place was a cool little part of town with some awesome architecture and Jenna put on her Beautiful Prom Dress and get this....her pink hi-tops! She was DARLING!!! I can't wait to show you guys these pics!!

Church was another 'Weird" week! And that's a good thing and a compliment! Pastor Craig's new book "Weird, because normal isn't working" is available for all of those who are interested! It has been awesome so far!

One of my most dreaded household tasks is changing out closets from winter to summer....but I did it!! I don't enjoy it but I am ALWAYS SOOO HAPPY when it is complete!!! Note: These pics are taken from the Internet and are NOT my closet :) They do however, reflect the chaos it was in and now it is in order!! WOOHOO!

This week I will be reviewing some really awesome books next week on my book blog! Come over and check them out if you want!!


The Real Me!

Oh I can't wait to see her pictures. I bet they are gorgeous and I know my favorite will be the one with your Daddy's Cowboy hat.

What's closet changing? LOL! We just put on a jacket if it gets cold. Ha! Ha! Don't envy that one.
And "Weird" sounds like something right up my alley. Ha!
Love you girlie.

Hi Loren, Hope the Sr. pictures turn out great... I'm sure they will --thanks to you (for standing in the water).. ha... Can't wait to see them!!!!

I have to swap out closets also... It was hot here this weekend (in the 80's) --but it's not going to be as hot this week.

Have a great day...


Can't wait to see the pictures! Sounds like a fun photo shoot, despite the wind!
Um...can you come arrange our closets? They are in need of help.
Peace and blessings to you!


I very much look forward to seeing the pictures as well. I remember when my daughter got her senior pictures taken -- fortunately the weather was very cooperative that day.
I think it's neat that Jenna wore your Dad's cowboy hat for some of the pictures.


I keep putting off the closet thing. Maybe reading this will inspire me to get after it - maybe. LOl
Looking forward to seeing the pictures. I know they will be terrific.
Hugs & blessings,


Hey! Thanks for stopping over today and sharing your words of wisdom. I'm trying to release it and your words of encouragement and advice came in pretty handy. I will keep reminding myself of them while I eat my CoCo Puffs :)
Peace and blessings, friend!


Hi my friend, Loren I love your new header. This post was such fun to read. I can't wait to see your girls photos-I bet she is as beautiful as you are. The closest thing-I just moved my long sleeved tops & turtlenecks to the back on my tops-with short sleeves at the front-but then it will probably snow again this week.
Hugs to you today dear one.
Love you girl. Noreen

super cute layout!!!

the pictures sound SO fun, just like Jenna. she sounds absolutely amazing and unique and her mama. you're awesome to let her be exactly who she is. some mothers wouldn't be all for the standing in water thing. :)

oh that closet switching is a JOB. ugh. good for you for getting it DONE! hope your week is great! love you, girl! XO


I'll bet her pictures are fantastic ... can't wait to see them. Sounds like a fun photo shoot. She is so fortunate that you're able to go do these things with her! You're a great mom!!!
