Well, here it is late Thursday and I just remembered I had not posted anything. Really I have been letting go of having to post daily, especially on the weekends. But I thought of a couple things to share with you.

First, if you love the band Coldplay and have XM satellite radio - Channel 51 and 29 are playing ALL COLDPLAY for 30 days. I honestly did not even know they had that much music. I mean, the Rolling Stones for 30 days or U2 or the Beatles? Yes. Even Madonna or Mariah Carey, but has Coldplay even been around that long? Whatever. I am enjoying it.

Speaking of music, we had a couple guys staying with us this past weekend that are a part of this band called Swerve and this much larger ministry, Keynote. These guys and gals rocked! And in my good friends cul de sac no less. It was a great time and I was incredibly thankful as they shared their gifts and stories with us. Especially, my 15 year old niece. She struggles quite a bit in life for many reasons and the drummer of this band (who happened to be a girl!) spent about an hour with her just talking about life, God and even prayed with her. My niece has been having such a better week and even went to church with us last Sunday. Check them out! I can tell you that they were a blessing to us this past weekend in more ways than one.

My high school reunion is coming up in 2 weeks and I don't have a dress, yet. Ugh. I have tried on several. I have not been happy with any of them. And I think the reason is simple. None of them actually make me lose 10 pounds.

Send me your suggestions.
Jo-Lynne sent me this one. I like it very much but think I might need something a little more snazzy. I always love her advice, though so I may just go ahead and try it on. I could have some killer shoes and jewelry and make it more snazzy, hmmm yes?

I do like this one. Good cover up for the arms. And this, too. What's up with these tiered dresses? Like it, but not so much the color. Oh, I will be searching for the next week I will keep you updated. I know, you just can't wait.

School is going fine this week. B is just tired! Sorry I have no photo to show you but, shhh I think I am getting a new camera for my birthday. Which is Monday. I live for my birthday. Gifts are one of my love languages, that's all. And I love a party. We always have a party on my birthday. Because I am an extravert, that's all.

Okay, I am off to dinner with the fam and our small group. I love those people and haven't seen much of them this summer. We get together, study the bible, eat dessert and drink decaf while our kids scream their heads off in the basement. It's good fun.

Ooooh. I LOVE the Ralph Lauren dress. And I agree, the first dress isn't snazzy enough.

Where is your reunion taking place? Didn't you mention that you grew up in St. Louis? It is HOTHOTHOT here!

I found some super cute dressier dresses this summer at Marshalls. One was BCBG, another was Donna Karan, and few other were a fancier, sassy kind of style. (now I need somewhere to wear them!!) I know you're a shoppin' kind of gal, so you've probably gone already.... but thought I'd mention it just in case!

Oooh, I like the the Jo-Lynne suggested.

I agree, the AT one is kind of plain. Can't wait to see what you choose!!
