What a week. My cup runeth over.

This week I finally hung up some plates I've been hoarding forever. Such a fun touch of country whim. I'm gonna turn this house in the burbs into my country farmhouse yet.

Abby and I worked on her "All About Me" timeline. Girlfriend has some nice handwriting for a somewhat defiant Kindie. There may be hope yet.

I ventured out to a Young Life capture the flag game...with condiments...because it wouldn't be Young Life without a mess.

Thank goodness for my KleenGuard all-purpose coveralls...

Ab, Brody and I snuggled up one afternoon after Kindergarten and ate Halloween Oreos and watched My Little Pony. Loved these moments all snuggled up together.

And I prepared to hike my first 14er...

I was super excited and kinda terrified...

7 miles
14,060 feet in elevation
43 mph winds
1 out of shape mama
2 amazing friends
We made it! But I'm not gonna kicked my butt. There were two times when I was not sure I was going to make it to the top...while my lungs were fighting to suck in oxygen and my legs turned to jello and I thought my heart was going to explode.

Then we scarfed down some delicious, greasy cheese burgers.

It was the best cheese burger of my life!
