The Weekend, and Other Terrible Ideas…

This weekend I let myself get roped into being a chaperon for a middle and high school lock-in. Now if you’ve been living under a rock and you are unfamiliar with the concept of a lock-in, it’s a fairly simple one.  Our Youth Pastor, his pregnant wife, two interns, and I spent 15 hours with 43 middle and high schoolers, locked into our church.

Fun, yes?

Now, honestly, except for the part where I didn’t sleep and then went home and couldn’t sleep, it wasn’t that bad.  There were games and movies and junk food and a nerf war and the kids all had a really good time and that’s really what matters.

Of course, today, I feel very much like I’m going to die.

In that spirit, to cheer myself (and hopefully you!) up, I’d like to share with you some of my favorite things from Pinterest.  Oh Pinterest, how I love thee….

By the way, you can follow me on Pinterest if you’d like at

Whenever possible, the pictures link to the original posts, although some pins go nowhere…which I think is pretty weird.
