pictures from my phone/Timehop and other random things

I should start off this post by sharing that I have been up for HOURS already today.  Crash jumped into our bed at some point in the night and was literally pushing me off of the bed.  When I tried to wake him by shaking him and told him to get down, he had the audacity to try and look all cute and falling back to sleep.

I'm still not speaking to him and am seriously irritated with him for THEN coming back downstairs with me and sleeping the entire morning away.

Do any of you watch This Is Us?  I know, I should probably ask if any of you DON'T watch This Is Us.  When I first saw the commercials advertising this show almost a year ago, I had the thought that I would watch it, even if only because it reminded me of Parenthood.  I am hooked on it, y'all, and it's been FOREVER since I've been hooked on a show in real time.  Netflix has spoiled all of us!  Every single week, I think to myself, "They're never going to be able to top this episode.", and then the next week?  They will top that previous episode.  I love the actors on it, particularly Sterling K. Brown (Randall from this show and Roland from Army Wives).

This morning, while it was still pitch black outside, I begrudgingly pulled up the menu and clicked on the episode from this week, the dreaded episode when they filmed in Memphis.  I have a friend who spoiled the episode for me on Facebook, that's why I say that I did this begrudgingly.  It wasn't as sad as I thought it would be honestly, though I did cry.  But yesterday, in texting with Missy about this show, I came across this on my Instagram feed and sent it to her.


Dear Sir/Madam,

Please excuse __________________ from school/ work today, Wednesday.  Last night was a very emotional episode of This Is Us.

Thank you,

Papa Pearson

Thank you, Milo Ventimiglia, for your humor and very accurate depiction.

I'm already dreading next week's episode, because it might be the one when we find out how he dies.

If you don't watch this show, they flip back and forth from the past to present day.

Ignore all the above if you don't watch this.

I also came across this on Instagram earlier in the week.  Look at all those precious babies.  I love, love, LOVE this man, Bob Goff, author and founder of the book and ministry, Love Does.  I have heard him speak twice and I met him a year ago.  He is the diplomatic consul for the country of Uganda and is overall an incredible man.  I love this picture and I love seeing his heart through this ministry.  Also?  If you've not read his book, Love Does, run and buy it immediately and read it.  It will not take you long to finish it, I promise.

This verse used to be my motto and life verse when my kids were a lot younger.  Ask them, if you don't believe me, I assure you that they will remember.  I would pray this over them and charge them with it every single day.  It was for me just as much as it was for them.

"Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically as something done for the Lord and not for men."  Colossians 3:23

And this was me on Monday, with the mountains of laundry from our weekend away.

I think it is HILARIOUS that Drew calls Graham, Grammaw.

He just said it when he said his name.

Nail polish love.

That's about all I have for today.  My brain is in a fog because of a lack of sleep.  Thanks for reading!  Love to all.

Thanks, Nina! Isn't the show AMAZING?! I want to rewatch it from the beginning just for fun. I'm so glad it's guaranteed a spot in the fall...they've renewed for like two more seasons. !!!
