Project 365 - Week 37

Week 37.

Another busy week in the Bowyer house. Arkansas can not decide if it still is summer or if we are going to head into fall! Last Friday, we were a bit chilly at the football game....which we loved. However, this week....back in the high 90s and it was scorching at the Friday game....ugh!

Jared is on a youth retreat this weekend, so Steve and I have enjoyed being "kid-less"......I think I won't mind empty nest too much! :)

Here's my week:
I remembered a picture for Sunday!!

We ended our children's summer program today.
We have been studying the 10 commandments.
Isn't this cake great?! Thx Denise!!!

This is not a great picture, but this mama was very happy!!
About 30 minutes after this picture, he left to go back to college.
Soooo good to have him home.


I met my friend Denise at the church today and went spent time getting the hall decorated for our new curriculum starting next weekend. We are studying the Heroes of the Faith and this will be our Hall of Faith! It will be fun to show how it changes each week.


Went out to buy some supplies for CrossWalk.
What do headbands and duct tape have to do with each other?
Hopefully I will remember to show you the finished project!!!


Went up to the school today to take pictures of the band kids to make band buttons for the parents to wear.


Worked on my Boston trip today.
My mom and I are going to Boston at the end of the month and I spent the afternoon googling things we might want to do. I am getting very excited!
And I hopefully will get to meet and see these two ladies:
Lisa and Karin


Football and Marching band season is here!!!
First home game.

The kids were so happy to have these new warm weather uniforms!!
It was sweltering out there tonight.
I think I sweated off 2 pounds!! ugh!


Since we are childless this weekend, Steve and I went out on a dinner date to a new Italian restaurant in town. Love the color in this drink!

So, how was your week?

Love the pictures. Nice to see a school finally has some common sense with the band uniforms!

Looks like a great week. It actually cooled down here (love 90s!) this week which was nice at the football game on Fri night! And the 10 Commandment cake looks great! Hope you have a great week!

Tori said...

What a fun cake. I don't know if I would have the patience to write out each commandment in icing!
I love the pic of Jason on your lap. I think God made those just for kids, no matter how old.
Can only imagine what headbands and duct tape do.
Have a super week!!

LuAnn said...

fun week - love the headband idea -and what awesome band uniforms for those kids in the heat :)

Rita said...

Yeah for a Sunday picture - I finally got one too!
Boston . . . that sounds like a great trip!

Maria said...

Love the cake and the photo of your drink. Looks like you had a great week! I've been posting to my blog but haven't kept up with the photo challenge. Maybe I'll start again for the last few months of 2010.

I love the ten commandment cake. Very cool. Yeah for children being home from college...even for a short time. Can't wait to see what you did with the headbands. The band buttons are a great idea. Love that wall color.

Mimi said...

The school band pics are my favorites!

It looks like a great week.

Hugs and love,

Kim said...

Always love how your photos do such a fabulous job of "describing" your week!

Boston -- sounds like a fun trip!

Have a wonderful week!

H-Mama said...

A great week. I know you were glad to have your baby home. :)

Hubs said to bring him 3 of those drinks when you come to town... Nope, he said to make it 2. ;) Counting calories, you know. Let me know when! :)

The Bug said...

Boy that cake looks great. I think I might cry if I worked that hard on it just to have people EAT it LOL.

I'll bet you & your mom will have a great time in Boston!

I noticed a cheerleader's mom at Dr. M's university's football game yesterday - she had a button with her daughter's picture & I thought that was pretty cool. It's a nice thing to do.

Rebecca Jo said...

We're studying the 10 commandments in youth right now .. that cake would be perfect!

Jill said...

Love the marching band and the delightfully delicious dinner drink!

RaD said...

I love how you do your children's curriculum and get everything all decorated. Our church is big and since it also has a school it's hard to do any kind of decorating like that because the rooms used for children's church are also classrooms and the school gym. But, we still have an awesome children's program so I'm really not complainin'.

Marching band how fun and difficult all at the same time (not that I would really know!). My eight year old son is a drummer and wants to be in a marching band some day. We'll see!

Cathy said...

Great pictures Sara. Like the 10 Commandments' cake and looking forward to see the completed hairband and duct tape project.

SmilingSally said...

Your church is so fortunate to have you as their pastor's wife. You add so much ...

rita said...

Unpredictable, changing temperatures here too, hence colds. Ugh!
Empty nest, not bad, even VERY good, but doesn't always last long ;)
Amazing cake.
How wonderful to travel with your Mom!

Lori said...

Rick and I are in some serious need of "our" time so that sounded wonderful.. We will get about 3 hours on Thurs for our anniversary! Love the picture of the drink... it looks sweet and fruity.

I wish Penn had hot weather uniforms!Hope you have a great week.

Ladynred said...

Looks like a fun week. The cake is beautiful.

Lori @ The Davidson Den said...

Yeah...that duct tape bit has me perplexed! Although, duct tape seems to make itself useful in the most random of places, doesn't it?? I was just laughing today about duct tape. My husband put it on the shield to my Pampered Chef hand-chopper...because we had dropped it so many times, it finally broke in two. He figured we could tape the outside of it and then just hand-wash it. So that's what we're doing, however ghetto that may be. LOL! glad you got to have your boy home, even if it was just for a bit. Looks like you got some good cuddling in. :)

Yes, we ate at Cock of the Walk. Good eye! We hadn't been there since Noah was a little toddler. I didn't even realize how much I'd missed me some fried pickles. Delish!

Wow. Sam's was empty, huh? I'll have to remember that next time we don't have tickets to a LR game: make plans to get the Sam's shopping done THEN! Ha!

Michelle said...

love the cake! might have to "borrow" this idea ;)

and i can't wait to see what you have planned for the headbands and duct tape!
