Starting Off the Year Right

So it's officially January SECOND 2012, but I haven't gone to bed yet, so to me it's still Sunday the first haha.

I feel like those little kids on the Disney World commercials because I'm too excited (and nervous) to sleep.



...and I'm driving. So pray for me!! Haha. I'm going with Chanelle and Keri, and our friend Carmen works at Disney so we're getting hooked up with park admission and a place to stay.  It's a great deal that we couldn't pass up.  I've always dreamed of going to Disney World, but my parents never wanted to go haha.  GIRLS' ROAD TRIP HERE WE COME!!!!!!!!!

This is a packed and crazy week.  My friend Mattie gets MARRIED on Friday.  I'm so happy for her and excited for her wedding.

Today (Monday) is Alex's birthday, and I wish I could be here for it, but I hope it's a GREAT day!

Oh, and I had a fantastic and relaxing day today (Sunday). 

-Church this morning
-Barnes & Noble with Zach
-Seafood lunch with my family & Zach
-Back to Barnes & Noble with my family to get calendars for the new year haha
-Took my sister to see Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. It's our annual tradition to go see a movie together, just the two of us, on New Year's Eve.  But since we went to the HPU basketball game yesterday, we went to the movie today.  It was a great movie, and I LOVE taking Ashley to movies and spending time with just her.  We ate popcorn and drank Coke and just had the best time with the simplest things.  I almost cried. haha :)
-After the movie, we picked up Zach and stopped by the bowling alley where the church youth group was hanging out
-Later, me and Zach watched TV for a while. Now I'm here trying to pack, since I leave for Florida in like THREE hours. Oh my gosh. AJSDKJADLKJLKJKJJHFYYUOIY

SSP for Warby Parker!

A couple years ago a friend told me about this really trendy site where she ordered her eyeglasses. I had asked her where she got such cute eyewear and her answer was  "Warby Parker!"
I went to the website and was overwhelmed by all the choices! Not only were the glasses trendy, but there were many traditional looks, and awesome colorful frames as well. There were countless options for both men and women, in prescription glasses, non-prescription, AND sunglasses!
I feel like sporting glasses rather than contacts has made a comeback in a big way, and now glasses are an accessory and make a bold statement to complete your look in addition to helping you see.
If you order from WP, you can have FIVE pairs sent to you if the glasses are "available for try-on" before you actually buy them! I have a friend who did this, and it was so easy and fun. I feel like many times, people are wary of ordering frames online since they can't try them on and see how they look, but Warb…

Riches I Need Not, Nor Man's Empty Praise

I haven't written anything on here since MARCH. ...not anything from my own spiritual journey. I've done promotions for two companies and that's all I've posted. I am realizing that when I write, I am a better person. I can't believe I haven't written on here in seven months. It makes me sad. I've felt a void!

Ironically, though, what I came here to write is the same topic as what I last posted about - what others think. I found a version of "Be Thou My Vision" that I really love about a month ago, so it's been on repeat. As I'm busy with everything going on in life, I have to constantly remind myself to keep my eyes set on Christ. The line that has stuck out to me the most over the past month is
"Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise."

I'm teaching 9th and 11th grade this semester. In both classes we are reading books set in the Great Depression. We've had discussions (sometimes debates) about how money can't …

Fix My Eyes on You

On the day I called You answered me And the hope in my soul increased I lift my hands And turn my eyes To the God who heals my heart And gives me peace
You are more than My words could ever say You are Lord over all Over all of my days I will see this season through I will fix my eyes on You Only You ~Hillsong
I heard this song for the first time the other day when I was really anxious about some stuff during my planning period at work. I didn't feel good and my mind was a little overwhelmed.  During those times when my mind is so boggled, it's hard to just sit back and have peace.  During those tumultuous times when it seems like everything is going the opposite of what you'd planned and everything seems to spin out of control, it's hard to remember that God, the Creator of all being, is in control. During those times of change and confusion, it's hard to trust that everything is working out just the way God has planned it to. During those times when life's just p…
