Summer Days

My Mom and I have a lot of plans for this summer…#1 goal? GET FIT! I have been in such a haze of school that I barely worked out this semester and while I never gained the infamous “freshman fifteen” I should be much more active than I am! So far out workouts consist of morning walks! Which sounds like not enough BUT if motivates you to eat healthy for the rest of the day! We’re planning on adding a few classes and we even got a Dancing With The Stars Workout DVD…mainly for my Aunt Teri who is so fun! I can’t wait to do our work out at the cabin in Wyoming this summer..or you never know maybe we will bust it out for Stephs graduation in Malibu!

Ok I am sitting at Starbucks writing…I know I’m SO ARTSY he he but THE worlds cutest puppies just got tied up outside right by the window I’m sitting looks like a white chihuahua and the other is a white maltese. They are SO cute. I can’t wait to have my own doggy! Bur my Mom is a firm believer in not having young children and a dog so it might be years before I decide to get one..not that I’m planning on having kids soon. Ha-ha!

Anyways I really am SO excited for this summer and I think it is off to a great start already. Being active, lots of goals for Mom and I! I don’t know how much I’ll see friends…BriAnn is off to Uganda, Sterling is going to Israel, Whitney is in Spain, and Georgia is in Tennessee! And I’m here..well and Malibu, Wyoming, Florida, Estes oh, and potentially Durango for a weekend. So as you can see it’s going to be an awesome summer, but even more than awesome I hope it’s rewarding! I hope I do accomplish goals, build relationships and really grow into myself. I think I have been focusing so much on others recently, well this past semester especially, that I have nearly completely neglected MYSELF. And I am so excited for that to stop! I am excited to grow in my relationship with Christ..attempt to love, argue,  struggle, laugh, learn and find Him again this summer.

Off to the next adventure of the day.



Mother’s Day

Oh what a day! To celebrate birth, life and the women who have given us both…I am joyful! This morning I was able to attend Park Cities. I love being here. It reminds me of my childhood and my Dad did yet another amazing job, preaching the gospel and applying the message not just to Moms, but to all of us!

I can not begin to describe the influence my Mom has had over me. Rasing twins and then a little boy, I’m sure it wasn’t easy. Mom trying to get me to ballet classes or flute recitals, just practicing these things weren’t ever on my to-do list. From dating punks to skipping youth group (once, never again!) I put my Mom through a lot, and I know I wasn’t as kind as I could have been in my preteen years. A fire-ball of a little girl, always quick to speak and very slow to listen, I couldn’t be more proud today to tell y’all that I’m actually more like my Mom than I ever realized. I wear my title proudly..Little Stac, I am!

I love you, Mom!
