Today is the day that the Lord hath made...

And I shall layeth in the sun :)

* Towel - check
* Sunglasses - check
* Bathing suit - check (I would say that's kind of a must! ha)
* Suncreen - check
* Reading material - big check!
* Water - check

Am I missing anything here? Oh yeah, i-pod, double check!!!

Today is a gorgeous Florida day! I had my alarm set to go to church and everything and my phone is my alarm and it was on vibrate. Vibrate does not = getting up, unfortunately :o(

In fact this whole weekend has pretty much been gorgeous! Yesterday I met my cousin/bff for lunch and had us some mexican food!!! I LOVE me some mexican! Then went with her to run some errands, so it was a pretty day for doing running around. I love spending time with Mel. Even if it's doing absolutely nothing. We just enjoy being together. No one gets me like she does. Friendships are such a gift, aren't they???

Then last night I did some baby-sitting! It was so fun. It's funny how things come around full circle. I actually baby-sat for a friend I went to high school with. We have rarely seen each other since we've been out and we didn't necessarily hang out in high school but we reconnected via Facebook and she now has a husband, two beautiful girls, and a wonderful home.... and she knows I love to baby-sit, I love kids, and so now I got to watch her kids for the first time. It was a easy and wonderful job watching her kids. I've only had one nightmare of a job, and that is for another post, and don't think I want to relive it again, haha!!

I'm enjoying my last day of freedom because tomorrow starts the daily grind of school, work, school, work, school, as I know it!!! But I'm determined to start the week with a positive attitude and will find the joy in school, work, school, work, school, work. It's all for the future Lauren, I keep telling myself that.

So as I start another semester, would you please pray for me. For determination, motivation, perseverance, direction, wisdom, discernment, peace, joy, happiness, any other word I'm forgetting??? haha!

Love ya'll, in case I haven't told you that lately!

Oh, and if you missed out on the tour of my kitcen, click here :O)

The sun beckons!

I'm so glad you didn't forget your bathing suit! ;)

I wish I could lay out. I'm pasty, so I just can't tan. Enjoy having a tan this summer on my behalf.

I read your kitchen post and saw that you liked Ghosts of Girlfriends Past so I will definitely see it. I adore Jennifer Garner (and love Matthew McConaughey, too).

Ann said...

Looks like you have a great life ... filled with friends and good times.

I love your knick-knacks on the wall from Greece ... they are so adorable.

Lauren said...

I am so jealous. It has seriously been raining here for 4 days straight.

I love your bathing suit!
