. . . mind over mattress . . .

. . . it's weird at my house lately . . .
. . . no one leaves for
school or work
early in the morning
any more . . .
{which makes it really tempting to just sleep in & be lazy}
. . . it was definitely one of those days . . .
. . . you know,
the kind where
you might have
stayed up way too late
the night before
{wasn't brooke awesome?}
on the dvr
after getting home
from mutual . . .
. . . then the blasted alarm rings,
you groan
& think real hard about
going back to sleep . . .
. . . but you know
you have an
appointment w/ your trainer . . .
. . . so you roll out,
brush your teeth,
& head down the road . . .
. . . then, crossing over the freeway
you're greeted with
this breathtaking sight . . . & you know for sure that
getting up was exactly
the right thing to do . . .

Early days = productive days. You've always been good at that. If only I could get up before the little stinkers do and see the sun rise! FAT CHANCE! They wake up BEFORE the sun comes up! Ha...way to go, Ma!

Saw that! Only minus the trainer wake-up call. Oh! That's what's missing, but the sunrise was beautiful just the same. You always see the positive! Thanks

Way to go Steph - wish I had a trainer to help me wake up every morning instead of babies banging on the walls and doors in their rooms.

Do you know Brooke on American Idol? There are several girls here from Mesa and no one knows her! We've all been wondering why no one has said, "She went to my high school!" And yes, I agree that she's great!

Thanks for the AI plug...I'm gonna go catch up on my DVR after watching Brooke!

My grandma used to go on and on about the sunrise/sets in AZ, I am afraid that I am always in vacation mode while there and fail to get out of bed in time to catch it! Batter luck next time!

Becky said...

go brooke!!! i get to watch clips on you tube! ha ha! i´m more of a push the snooze button type girl, but i have seen the sunrise a few times. it´s a very peaceful time of day & that view has to be part the reason!

Brittney Smith said...

Wow, you did get up early. Almost before the sun. It is beautiful. How is Bill doing??

angieinpink said...

Yes, yes. Yet another reason why I ♥ AZ....so beautiful!

abigail said...

Not to be a downer or anything but i am definitely not an early morning person! Im more of the afternoon morning person if you know what i mean! If you noticed my mothers blog you would have caught the hint that i am a sleeper and i use my sleeping talent to the fullest! Lets just say my usual sleep isn't the regular 8 hours......it's more on the 12 hours side! :) I can't help it i just am always sleepy!!

I can tell you waht the sky looks like at 11:00 pm, but never that early in the morning! SUCH A NIGHT OWL! (Ellie, too. Lance loves it-or not!)

So, I think I was way more inappropriate than Drew by writing a to-do list during church! BUT, I can now cross a few things off my list! HA HA.... Drew Boo- thanks for updating your fam! *Wink!

galbraithfam said...

That makes me miss Arizona so much! It's beautiful! Definitely worth the lack of sleep! Thanks for sharing!

something i always love. waking up before the children....to a quiet house, and the sun rising. i hope it warms up a tad more in the AM though, so i can start running outside again.

Good job Steph, awsome picture taking skills. I'm glad you didn't just keep it to yourself and let us enjoy it with you.

Lori said...

I am just impressed that you had your camera with you. Anytime I see something like that, I think "Oh I wish I had my camera." You are such an inspiration! Good Job!
