A new do!

I need a new hairdo!!  I am seriously at a loss.  So…I am opening this blog for YOUR suggestions.  Tell me what hairstyle you think would look good on me, what color, highlights or not.  Post pictures of your idea.  I am looking for a great new do for summer and I DO NOT want to draw attention to the fatness of my face.  Ready…GO! – Angela

Long time no blog…AKA…the coolest things that have happened in a month

Yes…I KNOW it has been almost FOUR weeks since the last blog, but I have been INSANELY busy this past month. Here are a few things I WOULD have blogged about had I not been so busy.

1. About 70 people got baptized at church on May 1st. It was CRAZY awesome! Half in each service, so we got to witness about 35. It was on the heels of the baptism classes that are held at the church. We got to worship while we watched everyone getting baptized one after another. I was so choked up I could barely sing. It was truly one of the most moving things I have ever witnessed. I’d love for you to see it too, but I can’t get the video to work right. 😦 I got to go up and pray with and encourage my friend Marjorie from choir after. It was so cool. I was excited to be a part of it.  Is there anything better than this!?!?!?!

2. Zac qualified for state in track in the 4 by 2 relay. YAY Zaccy! 🙂 For never running track before that’s pretty neat. WE think 🙂

3. Kelsey passed levels 3 AND 4 in her four week course in ice skating. She was totally stoked. As her reward I bought her a skate bag to sew her patches on to. She was BEAMING when she came off the ice. Proud moment.

4. Mike and I tried Marcella Valladolid’s Shrimp Stuffed Chiles. We added a little sliver of manchego to the tops of these. Perfection. Loved everything about these. YUM!

5. Mothers Day weekend was spent in Blaine, MN at our first outdoor soccer tournament of the summer season. The boys got to the finals and then lost, but it was a fun time being outside cheering them on. They played well. After returning home I got to eat steak and crab legs. My favorite self-indulgent meal 🙂

6. I have been ridiculously sick. Seriously. My body is having a hard time getting used to the North Dakota allergens. As soon as spring had sprung I was down for the count. The trees here are a KILLER!!! I thought I was over it and then my chin started itching and I got worse Saturday night.  Today I am FINALLY on the mend I think after a week of it. Ug. My nose has taken a beating. It is completely raw and peeling. Very attractive I tell you. AND…this made me miss my praise team audition. Again. Always something. Stinkarific. Hopefully I can get that done soon.

7. Yesterday Mike actually went fishing. It was GORGEOUS out. I, being sick, watched several movies. The Dilemma with Kevin James and Vince Vaughn and GOAL! The Dream Begins. It was a soccer movie. For those of you that don’t know me very well I don’t like sports, but I ADORE sports movies. I would consider myself a sports movie junky. This irritates Angela. Only because one of her favorite movies, The Replacements, I have never seen. I actually continue to NOT watch it only because she wants me to. 🙂 Hee hee. Its my fun.

8. The CURRYS are coming! The CURRYS are coming! In less than two weeks. I am so excited I could pee my pants. The weather should be amazing. Not too hot, not too cold, but cold enough in the evenings to enjoy a good fire by the lake. Zorbaz pizza, smores, water trampoline fun, late night card games…all on the agenda. I even plan to take a nap on a hammock whilst listening to children playing and water lapping onto the shore. It is going to ROCK!!!














And that’s about it. This week is supposed to be in the low 70s all week and sunny. I am guessing walking, biking and tennis might be in my future.

Happy Monday all!!! – Savory
