Auto Correct Hilarity

9 Oct

Bruce and I just had the most hysterical conversation:

I honestly can’t even tell you what he was trying to say we were both hysterical at the fact that he couldn’t even correct the correction because of auto correct.  I think I understand why my dad turned his off on his phone.

Dinner tonight:

Tonight’s Salad:

  • Mixed Greens
  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Diced Onions
  • Croutons
  • Black Beans, drained & rinsed
  • Mexican Blend Cheese
  • Honey Mustard Dressing

Honestly, keeping canned beans in my pantry, is such a salad lifesaver.  I love the quick and easy source of protein!

Oh myyyy that was good.

What is everyone up to on this Saturday night?  Probably something more interesting than laughing over auto correct.


8 Oct

Wow, what a beautiful day!

I told myself that I would spend the day finishing my sermon and getting some cleaning done.  But it’s so hard – who wants to be stuck inside on a day like today!

Somehow I thought a compromise between cleaning and being outside was baking.  Don’t ask.

But now that I have corn muffins, I feel the need to make chili.  So I took to pinterest.  Naturally.

Perhaps I should give this recipe a try?

Now I have neither cleaned nor looked at my sermon.  I am officially so much more productive on rainy days.  Someone send help.

Friday Night Musings

7 Oct

Ever have one of those days where you just want to call all of the people in your life and tell them that you love them?  Yep, having one of those days.

To everyone reading: I love you.  Embrace life – always.

I’m trying to be good on my quest to put the “fitness” back into “food faith fitness photography fun” but I wasn’t feel a walk or run today.  Pilates DVD at home, it was!  I adore this DVD.  The workouts are in 20 minute increments – perfect for an every day workout that you can sneak into a routine and you can double up if you are feeling ambitious.

Totally random, but look what I got from the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program!  Foodbuzz and Tervis teamed up – what a great combination!  Publishers were tasked with creating a new recipe for the tumbler – the wheels are turning in my head already.

I’m off – some of us from church are having a Stewardship Stuffing Party tonight!  Have you ever gotten something in the mail from your church and wondered who put it together?

Wish us luck …


7 Oct

Okay, I’m a wee bit stressed right now.

I did, however, take an hour break this afternoon to take a walk.  It was much-needed, although I came crashing back to reality as soon as I walked in the door.  I hate that!  How do you keep the zen?

Anyway, my garmin died less than a mile into the walk, but I walked about 50 minutes – soooo 3 miles perhaps?  I’m really happy that I forced myself to get out of the office – I need to do that more often.  Maybe I’ll start bringing workout clothes to work so I can leave straight from there?

Bruce came through big time and stopped at the grocery store for some dinner fixin’s – and then he cooked!  Wings + Salad – Yum.

Alright, I have a homily that isn’t finished yet and I’m fading fast.  Time to buckle down.

Alma Mater Pride

6 Oct

Ever since my ordination, the materials that I have received in the mail from my alma mater (Ursinus College) has tripled.  It’s ironic to me – “Hey, you’re a minister now, we are sure you will have lots of money to give to us!”


The bizarre thing is, I haven’t changed anything with them – I don’t think I ever changed my name or let them know that I was ordained.  And yet, I have been receiving mail to the church addressed to Rev. Sarah E. Weaver.

An eternal mystery.  I am so glad, though!  I loved my time at Ursinus – I am so grateful for the faculty and staff who taught lessons beyond the classroom and cannot wait to give back (though I doubt I will ever have enough to have a building named after me!).

Anyway, the point of this post was not to dream about a future “Sarah Weaver Center For Theological Studies” (oooooo, that has a nice ring to it).  The point was to show off what I found when I was reading the magazine:

Look at me and my wonderful church in the Ursinus Magazine!  This is under the “Class Notes” section.  How exciting!

Speaking of my wonderful church – I have a lot of work to do.  See you later!  xoxo

Food, Faith, Fitness(?), Photography, Fun

5 Oct

My blog has been lacking something in a big way lately.

Heyyyy, remember when I use to run on a regular basis?

(Five miles in the pouring rain – epic.)

(Aww, all those pictures were taken in my old apartment in Atlanta …)

Anyway, the point is that I have fallen off of the bandwagon out of my running shoes in a bad way lately.  After I crossed the finish line last November, I threw myself headfirst into the world of search & call, which lead to a call, which lead to ordination, which lead to the first six months of ordained ministry (whoaaa, six months already), which led to me sitting in my office with a parishioner today having the following conversation:

Parishioner: You still running?
Me: Welllllll …
Parishioner: No!
Me: I’ve been terrible lately, I have completely fallen out of the habit – I feel like I don’t have the time!
Parishioner: Come on, Sarah – you can’t do that!  The longer you wait the harder it will be for you to get back into it!

Never mind the fact that this particular person is in his late 70’s (I think) and could probably still run circles around me.  And also never mind the fact that the only “fitness” routine I have these days is forcing myself into a few yoga poses before I go to bed.

Okay, point taken.  I went for a run today.

Sort of.  I know I haven’t really run any significant distance since I moved here, so I am going to start small and creep myself up again.  Today I ran one mile (10:40) and walked one mile (17:06).  It wasn’t as painful as I thought it was going to be, though I could tell I hadn’t eaten enough in the morning and had zero energy.

I am currently trying not to remind myself of the fact that a little less than a year ago I ran 13.1 miles.


Okay, consider this my public declaration to put the “Fitness” back into “Food, Faith Fitness, Photography, Fun”.  Wish me luck!

See You Next Year

5 Oct

Well, garden – it’s been fun.

Thanks for all of the fresh salads.  See you next year!  We’ve got big plans for you …

Watch Me Fly

5 Oct

It’s the end of a long day and all Bruce and I wanted to do was curl up with a big bowl of popcorn and watch The Office on DVD.

We actually don’t have a microwave which forces us to make popcorn in the popcorn maker we got for our wedding.  I love the taste of homemade popcorn!


I heard this song this afternoon and have been listening to it on repeat ever since.  It’s definitely not a new song, but I love the underlying message about strength and endurance.  Enjoy!

Sometimes I bend
But I’ll never break
And I’m not about
To win another day

Crazy Days And Tuesdays

4 Oct

Okay, today just got away from me.

❤ Wear a Dress Tuesday.

Rainey sent me this last week!  Don’t you love this color?  I adore it and I adore it on her.

Lunch was eaten in between meetings and hospital visits.  Leftovers from last night – I didn’t have any tomatoes though.  Bummer!

For dinner, I was craving comfort food:

I think Baked Ziti qualifies.

I don’t have much of a recipe, because I wasn’t thrilled with it.  But I used ricotta cheese AND mozzarella, which gave it amaaaaaazing flavor.

I am currently locking myself in my office so I can get some work done.

I am going to kick off my heels though.

I think I deserve it.

Odds are you deserve it too. 🙂

Happy Wear a Dress Tuesday!

Book Club Update

4 Oct


Bruce was in the mood for salads for dinner so we both kind of did our own thing (we kind of have differing views on what you should put in a salad, ha!).

On my plate:

  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Pasta
  • Kidney Beans
  • Croutons
  • Honey Mustard Creole Salad Dressing (<– new and delicious!)

Hindsight – I should have added onions!

I went to book club tonight and we started to talk about The Help.  Oh man – y’all were right!  This book is amazing.  Not only do I think that the stories are ones that need to be told, but the book is also put together in a neat way.  It is easy to read and the characters lives intersect each other at critical points (which makes me never want to put it down!).  I can’t wait to finish it and then go see the movie.

Time for me to go to bed – good night!
