Catching Up

Let's see...last week was Vacation Bible School at church. I helped with the preschoolers. I was crew leader for the 4-year-olds. Most evenings, we (I had two helpers) had 11 kiddos. We used the Power Lab curriculum. The kids enjoyed it as much as the adults! It was a fun week, considering some of the kids WOULD NOT obey! Seems like I did a lot scolding.

I went to see the movie Mamma Mia! with my friends Linda and Patti. We all loved it! It's a chick flick. Meryl Streep can sing! And so can Pierce Brosnan. I was the one who cheered in the theater when he took off his shirt! Before the movie, we went to dinner. It was a fun evening! I even spent $3.50 on Dippin' Dots! Cookies and Cream. YUMMY!

I finally cleaned out my car. Exciting news, huh?! It was disgustingly dirty. I had spilled chicken corn soup (the jar lid wasn't on tight), iced tea, and coffee months ago. Originally, I wanted to take my car to have it dry cleaned at the car wash place. It's $29.95, but it takes 4 hours. So trying to coordinate someone to pick me up there, drop me off at home, etc. wasn't working out. Another car wash place wanted $99 for a shampooing! I ended up getting a can of Tu*rtle Wax car upholstery cleaner and cleaned it myself! I was very pleased with the results. The stains on the passenger seat are gone! And the carpet cleaned up nicely, too. I added new car mats, wiped down the dashboard, console, doors, etc. So now it looks like a new car instead of an old one!

My sister Corie is getting married Friday, so we're getting ready for all the festivities. The rehearsal is 9 AM Friday morning, followed by a brunch, hair/makeup appointments, pictures, and the wedding at 5 PM. The reception is at 6 PM. Then Saturday morning we (the bridal party and parents and inlaws) meet back at the church for a light breakfast before we drive 2 hours for a reception at the groom's church. I'm getting a manicure and my first pedicure tomorrow! I took the day off work. Well, first Mom and I are meeting for lunch, then going shopping for the goodies for the Saturday morning breakfast. It'll be a busy weekend, but Corie and Scott will be happy to be married! I'll post pictures as soon as I can!

Hi, Jada. Cute pics from VBS!

Congrats to your Sis, and hope everything goes well for the wedding. Y'all stay cool if you can.

Have a great rest of your week and weekend!
