Church of the (tryin' to be) Holy (Holier)

With all of the things that have happened this year in the church that we're parishioners of, I have a new requirement of the place I confess my sins; the place I go for refreshment, renewal, and worship of our beautiful savior...
What do you think? Like it?
I'm going to find the best pair of earrings from Grandma's old costume jewelry, clip them to flip flop adorned feet and make my way to the front pew.

Ordinary = Blest

"Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day, I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return." - Mary Jean Iron

Our Body - The Universe Within (no - it's not a fat joke, so quit smirking!)

Saturday mornings are the best. They're lazy and carefree. I meander towards my coffee cup and it takes a while for me to wake up. I sip coffee as I slowly chew each bite of my breakfast health bar and let the chocolate flood my mouth in mochaliciousness.
This was a different Saturday. We went South Austin granola for a day. We made our way into UT territory to visit the Our Body - The Universe Within exhibit. We stopped along the way for a few photo-opps and a visit to the University Co-op. Dirty Martins to whet our whistles and stretch our waist-bands in burger utopia. A real greasy spoon!
We soaked in our kids... I mean really soaked them in. I swear--- throughout the day I could literally see their brain sprockets rotating. They learned this Saturday. It was great!

And Baby Makes Five!

We are officially a household of five now. No more booths at restaurants, and the roomy VW Passat feels more like a can of sardines when we all scrunch into it... and I couldn't be happier!!!!!!!
Meet Gianna Elizabeth Reynolds. She was born in December and we're all completely smitten. We think she might like us too!
