our full life: week twenty-three

OFL 23Summer is officially here in Southern California. The sun is shining and the beach is calling. I am so excited to share this week with you!

I had a stomach bug on Tuesday…but I’m SO thankful it was only a 24-hour thing because we had lots to do! Check it out:

late night dessrtWe had a friend over for dinner on Wednesday and I went all out! He’s originally from Texas and I thought I’d give him a little taste of home cooking: Fried chicken, buttermilk biscuits, a fresh salad and mini apple crisps for dessert. We ate everything else too fast so this is the only photo I got.

bible time juneMy hubby brought me an iced latte early Friday morning and I got to spend some quiet time with Jesus. So GOOD.

fridays are sweetI also made a breakfast fit for a king for us. Breakfast sandwiches…although mine was deconstructed. Usually breakfast is yogurt and fruit on-the-go so this was an extra special treat!

meal planning juneMeal planning for June. Vodka sauce pasta is happening.

sunday driveOur usual drive to church together. I am overjoyed to be at an incredible church that preaches the GOSPEL every. single. sunday!

bull tacoFirst time to Bull Taco. DELISH! Sunday lunch date success.

beach workout100 jumping jacks, 100 hiesmans, 300 knee-highs, 50 crunches, 30 push-ups, 10 sprints and a surf session. Yes I am out-of-control sore, but it felt so good!

beach relaxingI’m taking this beauty in. I’m also looking at my exercise foot trail in front of me and I feel so grateful to have a working body. I need to start using it more.

my babe the surferLastly, this is my husband. He is a California native, 27 years old, and he is finally learning to surf. I am so proud of him for trying something new and loving it! Also, for being such an encouraging teacher for me!

What did you do this week!? I hope you’re starting to take in this beautiful summer like we are. Worth it. So so worth it.

  1. Hi Sarah, I had a wonderful time with you and Bret! It was fantastic to see you both. We have been enjoying the quiet mountains here and the green hills around our house. Tom and I are planning an ATV trip today… It should be fun. We planted our watermelon, Canteloupe and honey dew melons, in addition to our butternut squash and pumpkins. Our currant bushes have big berries on them now, we are just waiting for them to get riper. We did a lot of work around the yard together… Planted Dahlias, marigolds, and Salvia flowers. We also filled our hummingbird feeder… Ands watch them get nectar everyday. We also saw deer yesterday on our property with two twin fawns.. ANC later that evening we heard coyotes. The sky is a deep periwinkle blue here in Idaho…. Life is good… Thank you Jesus for all the wonderful gifts you give Tom and I everyday! : ) : ) love to you Sarah and Love to Bret !
