Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

Thursday Things, 28 May 2015

Short weeks are the best
It’s Thursday even though it feels like Wednesday! I’m all about that feeling. Give me a Thursday on a “Wednesday” any day.

Let’s (obviously) start with the biggest thing.

P’s getting hitched!

Real life.

Oh friends, I’m not one to tell people’s stories for them, but if I did, I’d tell you what a happy beginning this is for my sister.

She’s been through a lot the last few years as a single mom and I’m thankful she found a good old Oklahoma boy to sweep her off her feet.

Um, I’m technically not sure if I’m allowed to share this (so I’m asking for forgiveness instead of permission), but check out her gorgeous rock!

Engaged!!!!

So unique.

Since I’m a big sister and a hopeless romantic, naturally I’m over the moon about her engagement because, WEDDING PLANNING!

And now we must also consider the most important question about this engagement news-

Is she going to make me wear as ugly a bridesmaid dress as I made her wear?

Oh man I hope not. I still have no idea what I was thinking.

And yes, the church I grew up in and got married in really DID have ugly orange carpet.

One more thing about the wedding

Well, one more thing today, that is.

Can I please tell you how relieved I am that Pinterest didn’t exist and that Facebook was for school kids when I got married?!

I would have been completely overwhelmed by the ideas. Sometimes less is more. Especially when you’re a crazy stressed out bride-to-be slash full time college student.

Fit for a queen

The Queen of Couch Potatoes!

Oh man, friends. These chairs.
Finished product. Watching games will never feel the same again.

They’re lazy lady makers!

So cushy and cozy.

So inviting and relaxing.

They’re pretty much killing me.

Since we’re taking about the chairs...

Let’s talk about how anal meticulous Will is about our usage.

He’s making us rotate the chairs we sit in each night to make sure they all get “even wear.”

Real life.

In his defense, he’s waited years for these, so I kindly oblige without too much ribbing.

The only complaint is that sometimes in the rotation we sit on opposite ends (😂 ), and I’m
not a fan of that.

At all.

Friends in Low Places
I am so thankful for the beautiful godly people in my life. One of my dear sister friends completely shared in my heartache last week (see Friday’s post) as if she were going through it herself.

We sat on the phone and prayed together and cried together (actually, I didn’t cry. I ugly cried. I was glad we were on the phone so she couldn’t see the mascara everywhere and running nose. Ha!). God is so good to me, and giving me godly friends who love me and hurt with me when I’m sad, and are excited for me when things go well, is such icing on the cake.

When slight really means huge and probable

The weathermen in Oklahoma are killing me this storm season.

They have this new, improved, ever-so-helpful updated severe weather guide that’s supposed to depict a better understanding of the types/probability of storm risk in various areas.

Boo

When you see the words slight, what comes to mind?

I’m thinking like 25% chance or less, maybe?

Definitely not that you’re darn near guaranteed to have a storm (one with hail and occasional tornadoes). Which has pretty much happened every single time that stupid yellow “slight” risk is tagged for the metro.

I’m not sure if they’re tired of getting slack for claims they overreact too much or what, but basically when I see slight, I really see moderate these days.

You didn’t know I was such a weather “expert,” did you? Haha

Nap time for Britt & Carissa

Look at that little girl! Now she’s getting married!

That’s all today, sweets! Check in tomorrow for more fun!
