Pulling Braids and Smell the Roses

The LAST thing I wanted to hear on Friday night was

"misssss schhhoooolllzzz"

I had reached my 6th grade limit for the week. Sorry guys. 

Finally they went away…and I went to bed #oldlady

The next day I found out that some 8th grade boys stole my car antenna and threw it in a storm drain. 

BUT thats not the story I want to tell…

**Side Note my car's name is Ruby. Over and out. 

OBVIOUSLY I was frustrated. 
REALLY I so thought I my plight with 8th grade boys was over… well in the 8th grade. 

I called Reese in frustration.
He chuckled and said 
"OH NO they pulled Ruby's braids!!!"

I couldn't stop laughing. 
This is why I love him. 
Moments of utter frustration broken by laughter. 

Smell the Roses
I LOVE linking up with my bloggy bff Jessica for Smell the Roses this weeks task is 

Write down 3 inspirational quotes and post them in places where you'll see them throughout the week.

Honestly I wanted to make them all cute and pinterest worthy butttt my printer isn't working… you can thank my 7th period and candle wax but that is another story for another time. 

This one is going in my car! 
I will have lots of time to reflect considering I can't get radio… 

This one on my bathroom mirror. 
This is my favorite favorite verse. 
I always like writing my name at the top of verses, it reminds me that the Lord is speaking directly to me 
Gods grace just really astonishes me. 

and this one on my desk at school! 
Simple message. 
simple task. 

Happy monday, I hope you stopped and smelled the roses today!!

Lovely Little Things
