7 days without my cellphone!

I broke my phone guys.
I tripped trying to catch Allee as she ran away from me.
It's bad enough that when she runs from me I can't get her to come back, but adding insult to injury by way of a $200 phone repair is just cruel!
Thanks Universe! *sarcasm implied*
Anyway, I didn't realize how disconnected I would feel from people without my phone. 5 of my closest friends are typically contacted daily via text & snaps.
 3 of these friends don't even live in the state. Not being able to talk to them is awful. I miss them even more. My local friends hear from me when I see them at church, but now that is just once a week (if they come at all). If I am lucky it's twice. With everyone being sick however it's been 0. The contact with fellow moms is so important to me. I thrive on it. Now I feel like I am isolated. This of course doesn't include the friends that I am fortunate enough to see through the week. The NERDS luckily come over on Tuesdays for The Flash which helps. Granted, the show has taken a 3 week break, but we did have Nerd Night recently!
I suppose what I miss is the things that my friends and I talk about. We keep each other accountable to reading our Bibles and we are able to reach out to each other for prayer and advice. Now that my phone is out of commission I don't have that option.
I hope you don't think I am whining. I mean, honestly it doesn't matter I guess. I just look forward to being connected through the daily routine I have grown accustomed to.
Yes, not having a phone is strangely liberating because I don't feel the need for the internet all that much, but the cost is a bit higher than I prefer when it comes to feeling connected to my dear friends. Not having my camera at hand stinks too. There have been so many "Kodak Moments" that I have missed this week.
LOL. I digress.
Hoping you are blessed today.


  1. Isn't it amazing how much our social life is tied into those phones? It's hard to imagine that we could leave our home and not hear from anyone or that we had to pay through the nose to talk to people who didn't live close to us, etc.

    Sometimes, I secretly wish I could get rid of mine...

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her

I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.
