It's Summer at the Stepp House

Had you asked me how my day was going at 11:00am this morning, I would have said "awful." We were running late for church when I realized that the dress I had picked out was cut lower than I had remembered. The tank top that I would have normally worn underneath it was dirty (it had chocolate syrup on it or I would have just put it on - we were in a hurry after all). I finally found another outfit, ironed it and headed downstairs. I didn't have time to eat, so I did what I do every morning and made a bowl of cereal to eat in the car. As I reached to put on my seat belt, I dumped the entire bowl on my lap. At this point I had mascara running down my face from crying and by the time I could change and Todd cleaned the car, we were too late for the last service. It was not the way I had pictured our day going.

Once I calmed down, we decided to make the most of the day. We ran a couple of errands. I bought a skirt and cute tank top at Target - they have the cutest summer clothes right now, and then hit the pool. I'm in a much better mood now!


Don't look too closely at those pale legs. Today was my first day in the sun. I'm so excited for the many days we'll spend at the pool this summer.

Do I have to go back to work tomorrow? I think the pool needs someone to keep an eye on things...


  1. Bless your heart! I have had days like that too. When it seems like nothing is going your way. Tomorrow has to be better. I'm glad to see you made the most of it though! Nothing beats a good trip to Target and some time at the pool :)

  2. Awww, sorry about that crazy morning, but it looks like your day turned out pretty well :)

  3. Oh my poor girl. I'm so sorry about your awful morning.

    I'm so glad, though, that you and Todd had an unexpected wonderful day together, and that you reintroduced your legs to the pool and sun. Think you could do the honors for mine next weekend? ;o)

    The last line of this post made me giggle. I love you.

  4. That sounds like a hard morning! BUT you finished at the pool and there isn't much better than that! :)
