Faith Sisters Scripture Challenge, Bad Dinner, Coffee Crisis

Okay, what do you say about a day that starts with coffee shooting down the cabinets and all over the floor? I am not awake when I get up so I had to make the coffee as I was the first one downstairs. Let the dogs out, cleaned up a little poopoo accident, washed hands and went over to the coffee maker. Got the pot out of the dishwasher, put the coffee in, turned it on and next thing you know, coffee is spewing out of the base of the coffee maker, across teh counter tiles, and down the front of the cabinets onto the floor. I kept trying to figure out what was going on in my early am fog, and frankly, I just couldn't figure it out. Turns out I was missing the basket that actually should be holding the coffee instead of the piece that swings out, which is where I put the coffee.

Let's just say, the day was hairy from there so I'm glad to be scrapping and trying to wind down! And to end the day, I made a new recipe, which turned out very badly. It smelled a little funny and didn't taste that great.

I've lost another pound on my gym coaching thing so I'm down three pounds. WAhoo!!!

Finally, I needed the WORD today so I did my first of the Faith Sisters Scripture challenges: WAIT, which turned out to be an appropriate word for today.

I hope you do photos of yourself. I have lost a few pounds over the past several years, and so now I am at a point where I am comfortable with my image. Trust me, this was a long time coming. It's important for your family to see you, too, in photos when they look back.

Anyway, I tried a new technique from PhotoShop Friday hosted by Jessica Sprague on her blog. I made myself glow! I also had to play with this new kit from Tangie Baxter My Little Sweetheart {Girls}

You know it's going to be a rough day when you mess up the coffee first thing. Been there, done that!

Cute layouts!

Great LO. I hate photos of me, no matter what weight I am. But I have joined weight watchers and have lost 5 pounds so far in 2 weeks.

Great comments today. Totally agree with you about remembering to take pictures of yourself. It's a hard thing to do!!! Something I need to be better at. Love the layout as well. Great choice of background paper and border!
