52 Projects is an adventure in discovery. Every week, for 52 weeks, do something. Something you’ve never done before. Something you’ve always wanted to do. Something that scares you. Something that inspires you. Something that inspires others. Something that tickles your fancy. Something that caught your eye. Something that just popped into your head. It can be big. It can be small. It can be whatever you want it to be. Find out how doing something can lead you to discover things about yourself, your world, your God. Then, come here on Sundays and share it with others. I'll write about mine here, you write about yours on your blog, then use the tool in my post to link to your something. Please feel free to jump in and participate anytime throughout the year!

Week 36: a pie in the face
Once again, I am a day late in posting for my project and I apologize!
This past weekend was my birthday. I've wanted to have a pie thrown in my face for the longest time. Year after year, I made my wish known yet it never happened. Until Saturday.
I was getting ready to go out and run a few errands when Breen asked me to sit outside on one of our little garden chairs on the front lawn. I knew he was up to something but honestly I was expecting some sort of gift. So I sat there with my eyes closed and my hands opened. I could hear Breen singing Happy Birthday along with Max and Kendall. When I finally asked if I could open my eyes I was staring in to an enormous pie tin topped with a mountain of whipped cream. I barely had time to react when it was hurled in to my face. Kendall got video footage. Max took still photos. It was the best birthday present ever! Not only was it just a pie, it was chocolate pudding cream which I had always requested. Breen made it with his own two hands while I was out earlier that morning. I was so surprised! For hours I could still "taste" dairy since it had gone so far up my nostrils.
What did you do this week?
