Boom Boom Pow

This is going to be a post full of randomness, because that is exactly how the last week has been.

I am currently listening to Boom Boom Pow by the Black Eyed Peas. I kind of love this song. It makes me want to dance. Yep. I tried the moonwalk in the kitchen this morning, whilst wearing my Birkenstocks, and I imagine I looked like a real nerdface.

I have to laugh today, because this week has been a rough one. I am realizing the importance of family and most importantly about the power of my Heavenly Father. I truly have not prayed as hard as I have this week...since...well. EVER. I pray every day, but lately, I have been taking breaks throughout the day to talk to my God. My sister and my niece and nephew need Him so much right now. I pray that He will lift them up.

Yep, I just went from Boom Boom Pow to my crappy week. See, I am random this week. I told you.

We leave in one week for Washington D.C. Curtis has never been there, and as most of you know, he has a real passion for the history of this country and beyond. We have so much planned and I can't wait. We are going to go see King Lear at the Shakespeare Theater (Charlie's Father's Day gift to Daddy), and I have made all sorts of fancy eating-out reservations. We are going to pack in as much as we can in 5 days. I am really looking forward to this trip.

We are also leaving Charlie for the first time. Leaving him with G&G N. seemed like a great idea when I booked the trip a few months back. Now that we are getting closer to the trip, my anxiety level is rising a bit. I am nervous to leave him, and it's purely selfish, because I am more worried about me, than I am about him. I know he will be in great hands, but can I really be away from him for so long?? I guess I am going to find out!! I am certain we will enjoy ourselves to the fullest.

It's a gorgeous day today. We went to the bookstore, and then to drop off a package to Aunt B.C. Later on, we might go to the pool with Grandma Nancy, Lily, Jack and Aunt Mary. It's just beautiful outside. We can't waste these gorgeous days!! Especially the ones that I have off :)

Please cherish your family members today. Tell your siblings, parents, kids and friends that you love and appreciate them. This week my family has had to come together in support of my sister, and it's been refreshing to know how much we all love each other, even though we don't say it every day.

And now it's picture time!! Random!!!

Liz and Lana's Dirty Thirty:
Last Friday, we took a limo out to the lakeshore and partied it up THIRTY STYLE!!

The hotness is out of control in this picture!!



Wednesday night, we saw our first concert of the season. We don't have many planned this year, and the ones we do have planned are close to home. Thank heavens for FMG!!
