Project 366: Day 27 [March 14th]

It was absolutely GORGEOUS today. I think it's the prettiest (yes, I'm such a girl!) day we've had this year... and guess what my child did? ;) She had a rough night (those darn teeth) and so she took a nap at 11AM and didn't wake up until a little after 2PM. Guess she needed to catch up, right? haha! But I guess I had the windows open so I was still getting a little sun action! :) But, she finally woke up! She ate some lunch (yes, she's needy, haha! The girl sleeps then she thinks she needs to eat! Sheeeesh! ;)) But while she was napping, I brought a little 'sunshine' into our house with Scentsy!

 Havana Cabana to be exact. Are you a Scentsy fan? What's your favorite 'summer' scent? This isn't exactly my 'favorite' per se, but I love the way it makes our house 'feel.' (My favorite Summer-y scent is Sun Kissed Citrus!) If you have never tried Scentsy, I urge you too! It's a safe, fun way to make your house smell amazing! Check out HERE if you want to see more.

 And after lunch, we got ready, and we were off to the park!

I haven't been able to use my camera outdoors yet, so I really wanted to take advantage of this gorgeous day and try it out!

I'm no professional, but enjoying the camera is wonderful!

We love that little girl and we had an absolute blast with her! She's my little adventure girl. She adores being outside and pitches a fit when we bring her inside, haha! We came in after awhile though because we were getting hungry and we all definitely needed to get something to drink!

I bought a Bird's Eye skillet meal at the store the other day. I enjoy purchasing things that do not take long to fix for the 'busy' days that we sometimes have! I'd rather have a 'cheaper' meal at home then run over to a fast-food place, you know? And this one looked phenomenal! So, since we were all pretty hungry I thought I'd throw it in the skillet. All you do is pour the contents of the package into the skillet, turn on medium-high heat, cover, and let it cook for 10-12 minutes. Just stir occasionally! Simple! I let ours cook 12 minutes and let me tell you-- it was as soft as can be! PERFECT! And guess how much that bag cost? $3.68 at Walmart, y'all! Yes, the whole family ate on $3.68 :) Given, there's only 2 of us really eating, haha! But still!

I would definitely recommend them! It was penne pasta, broccoli, carrots, corn, chicken, and a cheddar/ranch sauce. YUM! :)

After that... we went to get some ice cream! Yes, we ate something healthy, then turned around and got ice cream, haha But we were excited to share it with Tayler! :) She LOVES her some ice cream. Can you tell by her face? (Sorry, it's bad quality, but it was taken with my cell phone, haha!)

She was chowing down, let me tell you, haha!

Then Natalie came over! Her Momma was back to work and it was time for us to baby sit :) But we decided to load both girls up in the double stroller and go for a walk. Once we got back, we sat on the front porch with them and just relaxed. It was absolutely gorgeous out and we all wanted to take advantage of it :)  E sat with Tayler and I sat with Natalie. We had an absolute blast!

What a fun day we had! I don't particularly enjoy the heat of Summer, but I am excited to be able to go outside with Tayler! Last summer she couldn't even sit up by herself and this Summer she is walking! It's going to be a blast, let me tell you! :)

We all came inside, got our baths and peejays, and cuddled up to watch some 'American Idol' :)

Do you all have your favorites picked yet? Ethan and I LOVE Jessica Sanchez, Colton Dixon, and Joshua Ledet. I could see all of 3 of them being in the top 3. As for last night.. Joshua tore it up! I think Colton sounds a lot like David Cook. Anyone else agree? And I thought the judges were awfully hard on Jessica. She can sing like no one else in the competition. Be a little nicer, eh? Everyone else did pretty good but I don't think they compared, but I'm probably a little biased ;)

If they do things like they did last week with a bottom 3 guys and bottom 3 girls, I think it will play out like so:

Bottom 3 Guys:
1. Heejun Han
2. Deandre Brackensick
3. Phillip Phillips

Bottom 3 Girls:
1. Shannon Magrane
2. Skylar Laine
3. Erika Van Pelt

And I think Heejun Han will go home tonight.

What are your thoughts? I'm probably going to be wrong because I NEVER get these things right, haha, but those are my thoughts :) 

And now for our prayer today. Are you all enjoying the '31 Days of Prayer for Your Husband?' I sure hope so! I feel like it is really strengthening our relationship, so I guess that's all that matters!

Pray that your husband will enjoy his manliness as he patterns his life after Christ and strong men in the faith. Pray for his physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual strength. (Eph. 3:16; 1 Peter 2:21; 1 Cor. 10:11)

And the Bible verses that go along with this prayer are as follows:

Ephesians 3:14-19 (The Message) My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you'll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ's love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God. 

1 Peter 2:21-25 (The Message)  This is the kind of life you've been invited into, the kind of life Christ lived. He suffered everything that came his way so you would know that it could be done, and also know how to do it, step-by-step. He never did one thing wrong,
   Not once said anything amiss. They called him every name in the book and he said nothing back. He suffered in silence, content to let God set things right. He used his servant body to carry our sins to the Cross so we could be rid of sin, free to live the right way. His wounds became your healing. You were lost sheep with no idea who you were or where you were going. Now you're named and kept for good by the Shepherd of your souls. 

1 Corinthians 10:11-12 (The Message)  These are all warning markers—danger!—in our history books, written down so that we don't repeat their mistakes. Our positions in the story are parallel—they at the beginning, we at the end—and we are just as capable of messing it up as they were. Don't be so naive and self-confident. You're not exempt. You could fall flat on your face as easily as anyone else. Forget about self-confidence; it's useless. Cultivate God-confidence. 

Dear Jesus, thank You for my husband. Please let him be a strong man in Your Word! I ask that you touch him physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. Let him realize that he is the head of the household and we need him to be spiritually strong for us. Let him trust in You and follow after You so that we can raise Tayler and our future children in that manner. We love You so much!! Amen!

God bless you all 

and Cheers to Project 366!
