Sunday was my first day of stepping out into freedom. My first time in two weeks to be FREE! Well most of me was free.
That's the funny part of gaining my freedom. In order to be free to wander about in society, I had to secure two parts of my body. "The girls" we shall call them.
"The girls" had to be secured lest I receive unwanted stares/gawking/glances/head-shaking/chin-dropping. You get the idea. I had to wear a bra.
That three letter word that I have been able to avoid these past two weeks. While I have been confined to my home, "the girls" have been unrestrained. But, on Sunday all that came to an end at precisely 12:30pm. Once again "the girls" were secured to their rightful position to venture out into public. They were none too pleased. They complained a little, causing me to tug and pull at my bra, but I'd rather have them complaining than deal with with the looks from people at Church.
Who knows, I might even get sent home to put a bra on! I've heard of odder things happening like kids being made to pray twice in Primary because they prayed for the Steelers to win instead of the Cardinals. (Sorry Crash, I couldn't resist.)
Come to think of it.....why does bra end in ahhhhhh?
Maybe because that's how you feel when you take it off?
This is our family right now. We have one son who is in Madagascar serving a mission. He has 5 months left. Our other son pictured here is a senior. Our time with him is winding down. This blog is for these men in my life. I love them with all of my heart! They mean more to me than words can describe....sometimes I am speechless (in a bad way too). That is all part of life. At the end of the day we love each other for each other, good, bad and not so pretty!
I am the mother of two awesome boys! One has recently returned from a mission for our church in Madagascar. Soon to be a Freshman in college.
The other is a Freshman in college and will be venturing out on a mission in the next year.
They have both brought me a lot of happiness and made me laugh! I am so blessed to have them in my life! They have had to go through things in life that some would feel are not fair, but they have not complained. They go through life with a smile on their face. They are a great example to me.
I am also the wife of an amazing man!!! Seriously! He does it all! He complains even less than my boys!!! I could not ask for a better companion than him. He is a great example to his sons. He works hard all week long, comes home and begins his work on our home and then continues to serve at our church. Yet, I do not feel neglected. He is there when I need him. He brings me lunch every day at work, he helps out at home, he loves me for me....what more can a woman ask for? Yep, I got him!!!
Can he be serious? Nope!
Our freshman....in college.
The Hubby (and his pal)
His only flaw....he doesn't know how to smile...hahahaha
OUR FAVORITE THINGS......
In the summer we LOVE to go to Lake Powell with my sister and her family. We have a blast there! There is never a dull moment whether it be from the kids, storms, bats or giant mice. We are constantly entertained by something or someone! Here are a few of my favorite memories.....
The Balloon Launcher
Many items were launched in 2005. Grapes, rotten tomatoes, live fireworks. ( I was the target for the fireworks.)
It was higher than it looked, especially for a scaredy cat like me. And by the way, I told Drew I was jumping, but didn't. He did!
My favorite place to be on a hot day! With one of my favorite nephews! (When he's in a good mood that is!)
A fun past time...watching others get their butt kicked on the molecule! Oh yeah!!!
Yep...the ride of my life....it hurt!
Bracing for the Storm
B-I-L and Hubby being pelted by the rain. The toys had to be secured!
The Many Faces of Hubby
Ok...he doesn't have many faces, in fact it's like pulling teeth to get a real smile out of him, so this makes this shot great!
