[photoaday] Week Thirty Eight

I have been a bad blogger this week, tisk tisk. I have been reading and catching up with everyone, but I haven't had anything to post about. I reaalllyyyy don't want to become one of those bloggers that gets obsessed with posting everyday that they just post random stuff. If I have nothing to share, I won't post that day. I would LOVE to have something to share everyday: a cute craft, something in our house, a sewing project.... but the reality is that I teach Kindergarteners and at the end of the day, I'm tired. And I'm pretty sure I need glasses because I have been having t-e-r-r-i-b-l-e headaches for a while now. So, to sum it up: I'm sorry I haven't been posting BUT just know you haven't missed much :)

Everyday with the Jays
[psst: if you take photos this week, use my button on your blog post and leave me a comment on THIS post with the link to YOUR blog post with your photos.... that's not confusing at all, is it? once you do that (and assuming you're a follower of mine), I will feature your blog one time with a few of your photos! remember, sharing is caring :)]

[last Saturday]: More cuddle time with our new niece, Clara! We visited them last weekend and she was adorable! This isn't one of the headbands I made, but it is adorable too, isn't it?

[Sunday]: Catching up with friends at Sam's (in the middle) wedding shower! We are so excited for her wedding festivities: Nate and I are both in the wedding. She is marrying our good friend, Scott (Sam, Scott, and I all grew up together and Nate joined the gang while we were in college. We all went to college together too! Scott knew Nate before I did!) And Emily (to the right) was MY maid of honor and basically is my sister. We've been friends since we were born. Legittt.

[Monday]: We keep getting free magazines.... not complaining! :)

[Tuesday]: Crafting at my dear friend, Bonnie's, house for her gender reveal party! She had the party on Saturday and we all found out the gender together (family and friends) at the same time. I helped her make decorations with my Silhouette! Expect a blog post soon: she gave her blessing that I could blog about the events!

[Wednesday]: At church, I turned the corner and saw Nate's head in the window of our restrooms... it was really awkward but too funny not to take a picture!

[Thursday]: We received mail from George, the child we sponsor from Compassion International. He lives in Kenya and it is SO NEAT to get mail from him! I've shared about Compassion International here. Take a look and see how you can make a difference in the life of a child!

[Friday]: Friday Night Lights in Texas! And it was homecoming, so me being the girly girl that I am, I was super excited for the half time events: even though I have no ties to this school whatsoever! Ha!

[Saturday]: Gender reveal day! The theme was football and you were either on Team Pink or Team Blue: you wore what color you thought the baby would be. Turns out, Team Blue won! Bonnie and her hubs will be welcoming a bouncing baby boy in February! Congratulations lady!

A very eventful week for the Johnson household. I wouldn't have it any other way! We have been doing some furniture rearranging and rehanging of pictures around the house. A bit OCD are we. Have a great week everyone!

"You are my strength when I am weak. You are the treasure that I seek. You are my all in all. Seeking you as a precious jewel, Lord to give up I'd be a fool. You are my all in all. Jesus, Lamb of God, worthy is Your name. Jesus, Lamb of God, worthy is Your name." 


  1. Lucky lady, getting free magazines! That's awesome! I can't wait to see pictures from the gender reveal party...I think those are so fun. You and Nate should def. do one when the time comes :). And that's really amazing that y'all sponsor a child in're truly making a difference in not only George's life but also the world. Incredible.

  2. love that at the end - I haven't sung that song in a long time - I miss it! and what a great pic of you and your friends! hope you had a good weekend and are ready for the week!


I read each and every comment: thank you for leaving some love!
