awkward and awesome's

Today I wish I were funny. But I'm honestly not feeling it. Luckily my kids at camp are. I mean it may not be awkward but it was funny. And it's a story I'd like to be able to remember weeks and weeks from now when I'm knee deep in school work.

The Story.

So today one of my boys [one is unfortunately in trouble quite a bit] got upset and punched a little 5-year old girl in the face. Problem. He went straight to the office and we tried to figure out what had happened and why he had done it. This is the bad part of the story, poor girl was so surprised she burst right into tears. Funny side: One of the other little boys [a witness] came running up to tell me what had happened "the real version" as he called it. He runs up and yells "Did you call the Jail!? He's going to jail. You can't hit girls! He hit her and now he's going to jail." This little one was so serious and told the troublemaker that from the very start. Even though it was bad I seriously love my kids. I'm glad he's learned that lesson now. He came up later and asked if we'd called the Jail yet and if our timeout kid was going there yet. Love those kids.

Hope there's awkward and awesomeness in your day.

Is it really bad that I don't know where my camera is? Or that I went away this weekend to see some of my absolute favorite people ever and didn't take one single picture? I've really got to get on this. How am I supposed to document my life with no pictures? Boring, I tell you. I've become boring.

But I can promise it was a seriously good weekend.

Late night girl talks.
Midnight wal-mart adventures.
Reunited with the Gang.
Perfect dinners.
Lazy afternoons.
Painting nails.
Staying up 'til 4am talking.
Being silly.
Friends who love you even when you're grouchy.
Seeing my second family.
Wedding Showers.
Girls soccer World Cup.
Flying Pillows.
Sunday Church.
Quaint Lunches.
Thrift shopping.

Love my friends.

I'll post pictures once I get some.

Wish I were here Wednesday!

So because I am secretly a dreamer and just want to travel the entire world. I wanted to start something I got from the Olivia's lovely little bloggie. Every Wednesday she does something called "Wish I were here Wednesday". Adorable. And it lets me dream a little. So for this first Wish I were Here Wednesday Post, this is where I wish I was spending my summer.

Wish I were here. Weekends.

Isn't this the most picturesque setting? I think I could stay here forever.

Hope you're Wednesday is really this relaxing.
xoxo, Lo

I made it!

Sooooo [insert drum roll please] I PASSED THE GRE! Wooohooooo! And it top it all off, I got EXACTLY the score I needed for my program. God is so good! 4 days of studying and the exact score I needed? Praise. the. Lord. He is just too good for words! Plus I get to be back to the blog world which makes me very excited. It's wayyyyyy more fun than it was studying for my GRE!

Happy Tuesday!

So turns out that summer isn't always "summer". I found out last night that I'll be taking the GRE... SUNDAY. Sunday people. As in I have to get into grad school and this is the test that defines it and I must pass it in 4 days even though I have not starting studying Sunday. Oh happy Day. I'll be back Monday. So until then I'm hanging out in sweatpants, glasses, study books, and the mug. Oh happy Summer.

{Seems that Kaplan book is already working out for me. Hiatus is on my vocab list. Win!} Hope you're weekend plans are more fun than mine.
xoxo, Lo

P.S- If you think about it I could totally use some prayers in the next few days! :)

Actually she has the cutest little blog. Check her out here. So here's to 5 full weekends this month! Let's enjoy that little blessing!

And maybe some more weekend's like this yes?

Wish I were here. Weekends.

Happy Weekend.
