The Sunday Morning Shuffle and Shamrock Shake

I don’t know what it is with Sundays, but I feel like I am always doing the “Sunday morning shuffle” to get ready for church.  I swear- on work days I can run 6 miles, eat breakfast, get showered and dressed- and get out the door by 6:30 am.

However, for some reason, Sunday mornings are so hard for me to get out the door by 10:45.  I think it is because I feel like I have so much time…so I sit on the computer, clean up the house, and am not in a hurry to run.  Before I know it, I look at the clock and I have to run, shower, and get to church in 45 minutes {commence the Sunday Morning Shuffle}.  Always a rush.  I gotta get better at that- so stressful.

After church we went to the Allentown St. Patty’s Day Parade to see Haley’s girl scout troop.  We were late (shocking), and so we had to find where they were in the parade.  We were actually behind them, so we had to run ahead of them in order to see them pass by.  Definitely a workout!! Once we got there, we had fun. Parades are so fun!


I LOVE bagpipes and dream of being the person out front who directs them and twirls the big club.



Beautiful horses!



I spy Haley Bear!



My crazy brother!



Carly and Broc on the back of the float. Broc tried to jump off when he saw my mom!



Carly, Broc, and Haley after the parade!

After the parade we brought Broc home with us for a little bit to hang out. He is at such a fun age and loves to hang out with his Uncle Beeker.


Seriously praying the Lord blesses us with a son. Our kids are so lucky- Brian is going to make such a wonderful daddy.


Around 5, we headed to Kristianna and Alex’s for dinner: pulled pork and macaroni and cheese.  Holy yum!


After, we headed to McDonalds for our family’s annual tradition, Shamrock Shakes.  We’ve been doing this for as long as I can remember and I love it.  It is the only day of the year that I look forward to having fast food.


Such a fun day with our family!! Since it is St. Patrick’s Day, I think it would be appropriate to say that I am lucky; however, I prefer to say that I am blessed.

Blessed beyond measure <3.
