Peaks, Pits, Praises, Prayers

Guess what everyone, its FRIDAY!!! I know, do a little happy dance because I know you want to. I love Friday's because that means weekend and lots of time to work on projects! Today isn't a regular Friday for me though because right now we are headed to Colorado. We are on our way to Montanta for the week and making a stop for the night in Colorado to see Jarr's grandparent's and spend a little time with them. I love vacations and getting to take another one so shortly after we got back from Cozumel is really exciting for me. Last summer I only took one short 4 day vacation with my mom and sisters to Memphis and it made my summer really long and boring. So it's been really fun to go on a vacation with my family and now we are going on one with Jarr's.

Jarr's mom is actually from up around Montana and used to work in Glacier National Park so we are going to visit all the places she lived as a little girl as well as heading into Canada a few days.  I have never been north of South Dakota so I am really excited to venture into Montana, North Dakota, and Canada. I know it is beautiful up there so I am really excited to see everything and take lots of pictures.

I have heard that its still pretty chilly up north, especially compared to our 100 degree weather here. So packing is going to be interesting, I just packed for Mexico and it was all swim suits and dresses. This trip its going to be all jeans and caridgans. I'm planning on talking Jarr into letting me use some of his suitcase also though because these clothes are bigger then the ones we took to Mexico so they take up more room.

Now on to what this post is supposed to be about. I hope you don't mind my ramblings above.

My Peak of the Week- has for sure been sleeping in my own bed again, I really missed it in Mexico. Also drinking sweek tea and water, being able to work on my projects and getting so much encouragement and positive feedback from all of you lovely ladies.

My Pit of the Week- this has been a hard week, for Jarr's family and for mine. Wednesday was the 2 year anniversary of my Papa passing away and you all know how close my family is. He was like my dad and we were really close so its hard. I know he's in Heaven watching me and smiling at his pumpkin heads but we still his him. Thursday was Jarr's little brother's birthday. He would of been 13, I never knew Aaron but I feel like I did from the way Jarr's family talks about him. They amaze me with their faith and hope in God.

My Praises of the Week- having dinner every night but 1 this week with Jarr's family. It has been so nice to spend time with them. I love them so much, I feel like they are my family and I know they call me one of theirs. It has been such a blessing to spend time with them this week.

My Prayers of the Week- that we have safe travles to Montana and everyone has a good time. For my grandma, I know this week was really hard on her and I just pray she turns to God and lets him comfort her. Also, I want to say a little prayer for my office, we have been trying to hire someone this entire year and it just isn't going well. I pray that God puts the right person in this position.

What are you Peaks, Pits, Praises, and Prayers of the week?

Here is a picture of my little sleepy head, long car rides are always good for naps!


  1. Have a safe trip! Montana and Colorado are two states that I would love to visit one day!

  2. These are my favorite posts!! Sorry for the "Pits", but even in those, it sounds like there was some very special sweetness. Have a lovely trip with loads of "Peaks" and "Praises".
