Seven for Sunday: 14th edition


I have spent a lot of time with my siblings this past week, but hopefully not as much as I will be spending in the next few months as my brother Jake is coming home to stay with us this summer!  We have missed him beyond description and are so excited to have him all to ourselves for a little while.  But this past week Andee and Ellie and I all got together for a yummy picnic and water party for the kiddos.  I have a feeling this will be a frequent festivity this summer:
Kissing cousins!!
Jameser was mad we tried Bree’s swim cap on him….
Splash pad c/o Grammy Erin
Here are a list of songs I’m planning on investing in for my summer play list:
Just Like a Domino–Jessie Jay
Somebody I Used to Know–Gotye
Broken Hearted–Karmin
Call Me Maybe–Carly Rae Jepson
If I Was Your Boyfriend–J.B.
I Was Here–Beyonce
And I’m dying for this lullaby album: Baby Mine
Any other summer anthems you recommend??
I’m fasting today for the first time in over a year and a half.  From being pregnant to nursing, I haven’t been able to and I have truly missed it.  I am feeling wonderful!  Sure, I’m hungry, but the hunger pains are a blessing that remind me of why I’m fasting.  They remind me that I need to rely on The Lord to help me get  through the hunger and keep my focus on why I have chosen to make this sacrifice today. 

We went to our first Farmers Market this week and were confused at how little produce they actually had to purchase.  It was more of a jewelry show, really, which of course I didn’t mind.  But I was just itching for some fresh, locally grown produce!!  I’m sure once it gets deeper into the season they will have more options.  We had such a fun time, though, and Jameser loved being with some of his cousins.
The only produce they had at the market.  We got some and they were DELISH!
best friends

Apple beer for a toast to the summer season!

I really want to do a cleanse this summer.  Does anyone have any recommendations?

I need a vacation….  Bear Lake and Sun Valley canNOT come soon enough!!!!  Email me if you’d be interested in guest posting while I’m gone!

    Oh no she doesnt have a swim cap! That is soooo cute. Gosh, I wish I had read this before I ate that cupcake for breakfast, totally forgot it was fast Sunday!

    So.. umm, I have info on a colon cleanse if you want it. It’s kinda one of those things I don’t talk about online, so call me if you’re interested. 😉

    My mother watched “fat sick and nearly dead” recently and is now juicing EVERYTHING. I’m not sure if that’s what you’re looking for but you can watch the movie (free) on Hulu.

    I’ll be honest, I haven’t seen it yet.

  4. Mindy says:

    I was going to say watch Fat Sick and Nearly Dead too. It was pretty motivating to just eat healthy. And it made me want to do a juice fast too. We’ll see if I actually do it, but I’d check that out.

    I have never been to Bear Lake… I want to go so badly! Can’t wait to live vicariously through your blog posts 😉
    The month of May our ward held a fast for our Bishop and his daughter, I was SO bummed I couldn’t participate. But when I found out I was pregnant I was so GLAD to have a really good excuse of why I can’t fast.. ha ha how SAD!
