The World Cup

Let’s talk women’s soccer.

And how the mere suggestion of attending any type of soccer game makes Will want to drive a stake through his left eye.

OKC got a semi-pro (I guess that’s what they are? I have no idea.) men’s soccer team last year. I mentioned we ought to go to a game, and Will looked at me as if I were purple and had four eyes.

Real life. 

Anyway, something about the World Cup is different. I have no idea what the technicalities are for impassioned cheering versus complete lack of interest, but from what I can see, the World Cup appears to be the dividing line.

You’d think Will followed women’s soccer year round the way he knows the players and talks to the TV.

We watched them win Monday night and will watch tomorrow, too. So yeah. Will: the biggest non-fan, fan that exists

Is anyone going to see Jurassic Park besides kids who grew up in the ‘90s?

Remember how huge those movies were for our generation? HUGE!

Only, I’m not gonna lie, I’m not as excited about this new one. Yet, I feel completely obligated to see it because of how big they were when I was younger.

I wonder if it will be a whole bunch of us 30-somethings in the theatre along with our kids we dragged along with us? Or maybe it will be completely different. Like a whole new movie for a whole new generation?

Since we’re talking movies...
Will and I are currently on a Star Wars bender in preparation for the new one coming out this year.

After re-watching Episodes 1-3, and then the originals, I have this awful fear they’re going to Hollywood everything up and ruin the new ones.

Let’s hope not.

Will & Britt by Kuwait towers-May 2005
This was taken way back in 2005 during one of our first weekends in Kuwait. Its crazy how long ago that was!

For a fun and crazy blast from the past, take a gander at my blog archives then. What a doozy!

The Summer of Sipping

I’m all about cold summery drinks this time of year.

I’m a sucker for Sonic’s unsweetened teas (especially blackberry), just about any random iced tea flavor I make on my own, lime infused water, lemon infused water, basil infused water, lemon-lime-basil infused water, all the water, chickfila iced coffee (always), and fruity green monsters.

You get the point. It’s sort of a thing right now.

These raw and brave series of posts about one beautiful woman’s decision to have her implants extracted.

Start at Part One and keep going. I’ve teared up multiple times.

More camping
Oh my stars, guys. Remember my breaking camp post? It’s been a big theme in my life right now.

I often grow restless and anxious with the process. I love that God knows us better than we know ourselves and always gives us reassurance when we start to grow weary.

Without missing a beat this week, the Lord revealed more “camping” verses to me in Jeremiah 29 as I continue to wait on Him, do His will in the things currently on my plate, and trust Him for the next steps. It’s crazy how blatant He spoke, guys! Such truth I needed to hear.

I hope to share it very soon, but not this week. Tomorrow I have something else up my sleeve. It’s been a long time coming.

That’s it for today, dears! Any randomness you care to share?
