Project 366: Day 35 [March 22nd]

It was yet another gorgeous day in our world today! But guess what? Our air conditioner wasn't working. I know, how devastating? :( So, Tayler and I had to hang out around the house and wait for them to arrive to fix it! It was freezing up.. who would have guessed, haha! The guy eventually came and we were joking around about how he's probably never had to go fix someone's air conditioning in MARCH before. He said it's definitely new to him! Crazy, right? I can't believe I'm actually getting tan and it's MARCH haha! At least it's a head start, right? haha! 

But anyways... thought I'd share a picture of our sweet Tayler. She turned 51 weeks old today. That means there's only 1 week left of 'Project 52' and mercy, I remember when I started it! Crazy to think that she's almost a year old.

That outfit was so cute yesterday, too! My Grandma Smith bought it for her! Thanks Grams! :)

Then we spent a LOT of time outside! :) It's too nice out to be cooped up inside.. even if all we do is sit on a blanket and read and play with blocks, haha!

That's usually what we do :) I'm reading 'The Wednesday Sisters' by Meg Waite Clayton. (Thanks Rachel) So, I basked in the sunlight enjoying this book and Tayler enjoyed playing with her blocks. She is seriously such a good little baby. She just sits on the blanket and plays and enjoys all of the sounds that come with nature :) Gigi came over and she hung out outside with us too! Thanks, Mom!

Here's a shot of Gigi and Tayler:

And Tayler and I posed for a picture too! :)

We had such a good time! But we came inside after awhile so Tayler could get something to drink and so she could take a nap! She was getting quite cranky out there and you always know if Tayler isn't happy when she's outside it's because she is tired, haha! Then Daddy came home and we decided to have a picnic outside! So, I made fajitas and chicken fajita rice. Here's what I used for the fajitas:

Rice a Roni Chicken Fajita (it's like a dollar at Walmart!), Fajita Seasoning Mix, Steak, and Tortillas. (The tortillas are only a dollar too!) All together, this meal was about $6.00 for ALL three of us! Not too shabby, eh?

I chopped up some green peppers and onions too to add to the steak mixture.

Yum, yum, yum! :)

And then, just follow the directions on the Rice A Roni box and the Fajita seasoning packet. It will list how much oil and water to add, etc. Then it should look something like this:

Sorry for the quality, these were all taken with my cell phone haha. I didn't have time to run and get my camera. I had a baby trying to dump everything out of all of the cabinets while cooking. Yes, we must invest in locks for those! I'm making a mental note now!!

After that, the rice was done, so I heated up some tortillas and put everything on plates for us :)

Not the best picture in the world, but you get the idea :) It was SO good and I think Tayler had a BLAST eating outside! We put it on her high chair try and she smiled the entire time, haha! It was so cute, plus it made clean up time that much easier!

It was just Tayler and me for awhile because Daddy finally sold his Civic, but we still had a fun time, hehe! :)

Then we came inside and got baths. It was definitely a necessity with how much time we spent outside today! We all smelled like sun-tan lotion, that's for sure, haha! :) After bath time, Tayler and I decided to have some fun in her play room. It's been neglected with all of the time we've been spending outside, so we decided to play on the slide and on the floor for a little while. Here's Tayler on her slide:

She loves throwing herself forward and going down it, haha! She laughs every single time :) And here's a shot of our view on the floor. Thanks Jess and DJ for those letters. Tayler absolutely adores playing with them!!!

And see that tan I'm actually getting and it's only March 22nd? HOLLA! haha! :) 

And our night ended with:

Of course! How did you all feel about the results show? Well, first of all, I know my husband was ecstatic because his woman was on there ;) haha! He loves him some Haley Reinhart, goof ball! I always tease him about that! But I will say that I was pretty close on the bottom 3. I picked Joshua, DeAndre, and Heejun and it was Erika, DeAndre, and Heejun. However, I said that Heejun was going home, but Erika did :( Sad, huh? I really think Heejun and DeAndre will be next if they don't pick things up. Guess we'll see! What are your thoughts about the night?

And now for the prayer today:

Pray that your husband will be courageous in his stand against evil and injustice, and that he will stand for the truth. Pray that he will protect you and your family from Satan’s attacks. (Ps. 31:24; Eph. 6:13; Ps. 27:14)

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

Psalms 31:24 (The Message) Be brave. Be strong. Don't give up.
      Expect God to get here soon. 

Ephesians 6:13-18 (The Message)  Be prepared. You're up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it's all over but the shouting you'll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You'll need them throughout your life. God's Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other's spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out. 

Psalms 27:13-14 (The Message)  I'm sure now I'll see God's goodness
      in the exuberant earth. Stay with God! Take heart. Don't quit.
   I'll say it again:  Stay with God

Dear Jesus, I know I say this every morning, but thank You so much for Ethan! He is such a wonderful husband and father and I know Tayler and I are SO blessed to have him in our lives! I pray that he is courageous today! I pray that he knows Your Word and will abide in it. I know he loves You so much and I just ask that he always follows after You and what Your Word says! I pray that he knows the scripture and that he uses it against any attack from the enemy. We know there is power alone in YOUR NAME and we pray that he uses that! We love You Lord!!! In Your name, Amen!!

God bless you all

and cheers to Project 366!
