Awe, I love us.
Oh, I miss these boys being around the office all the time. I hate summer and I hate graduation. Okay, maybe not. ;)
Sam, Rachel, Me, and Grant. :)

I so love this picture of me and the boys (Grant on the left and Sam leaning on me from the right). This was awhile back when I tagged along on the Deuel family outing and I just had to put it up cause it makes me happy to look at. :)
This summer, Student Ministries decided to take a different approach to their normal "5-day Club" program that they have been doing for years and try something called "Kids In The Park." They went to three different parks for three days and rounded up the kids and played games, told stories, made wordless bracelets, had bbq's and candy, sang songs...all in all, it was a pretty sweet deal and each club had 50+ kids show up, which is awesome!
Sara, me and Kayla...I love these girls. Such sweethearts who have sweet hearts for the students. Doesn't get any better, right?
Got to spend lots of time with these two lovely life-long friends (Rach and Steph). I should mention that this is Sunday morning at the butt crack of dawn after something like 4 hours of sleep.

But the last two nights I have been able to get a good solid 8 hoursish of sleep and wake up pretty easily and relatively refreshed in the AM which I wasn't sure would happen but am very thankful for.
However, NOW, I'm feeling a slump coming on...actually it is has hit me like a ton of bricks, and those bricks apparently (after looking at myself in the bathroom mirror) have taken up residence under my eyes. Yikes! They are not pretty. :) Oh goodness, I'm tired. Not good considering it's only 11:15.

The average woman consumes (as in eats) 4-6 pounds of lipstick during her lifetime.
And a definition:
untried (adjective): Not tried or tested by experience.
No! Ya don't say. I'm just not sure about this one... Really?

Mom and I working together to plant the little greenies just right.
Me and my greenies in their new red-cracking paint home. :)
Their new home and my parents house by the pretty pink bush...much more exciting than my desk and office, I must admit.
She has made some pretty fabulous things including a very some fabulous pulled pork taco's and a very tasty veggie pizza (she was even sweet enough to bring a piece of the pizza to work for me to taste...and it was GOOD!).
So...I decided that since we have so much fun with this little meal planning of ours, we needed to blog about it. I have finally gotten some pictures from her from the most recent Thursday night dinner and hopefully we can keep this trend going and we can share Linda's great culinary skills and the recipe's she makes with you all out there in blogger land. :) Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! :)
Here Linda has just pulled out from under the broiler her famous bacon wrapped scallops. Yum!
I tell ya, she pampers these people. Here is her other appetizer plate of crackers and brie with a jalepeno relish on top.And the dinner, foccacia bread, a nice italian dressed salad, garlic orzo, and porketta. The recipe attached is not the one she used but it will work very nicely for you. :) I have never heard of porketta but it sure does look good and she said the gang LOVED it! Oh, and she put her pork shoulder (I think that is what she used?) in the slow cooker all day and said the meat was just pull apart tender.
Okay, this is the first installment. Hopefully next week we'll have another one with this Thursday's dinner for you to try. :)
(oh, I should also mention to you that I just walked Linda through her first order of Vitalicious vitatops. Yep, I have another convert. :) Kristin, that means you're next!) ;)
