My Weekend

It was such a nice weekend.  Friday night, I was able to go eat with my family (minus my brother) at my favorite place, J&S, since I don't work on Fridays anymore.  Later, since it was Family Weekend at High Point, Zach and I took Ashley to the arcade in the University Center, and she went crazy.  (I'll take her back again even when it's not Family Weekend because she loved it so much haha.)  It was so adorable.  She was running from game to game, and took like 12 sheets of pictures in the photo booth.  The ones she took by herself are HILARIOUS.  It was a whole lot of fun.

Saturday, I worked at Libby Hill til 4.  I can honestly say, I really look forward to and appreciate working there a whole lot more than I already did, now that I only work there one day a week, and have such a busy schedule now.  It's nice to kind of slow down.  You wouldn't think a job would help me relax, but it does!

Saturday night, Zach, Alex, Ashley and I went to the HPU basketball game.  What a game.  It was SO close and ended up going in to overtime, and High Point won! Yay!

We went to eat at Ham's (interesting experience...won't go into that haha), and Jason, my brother, and Katie met us there.  Then went back to the arcade to play some games. 

Sunday I went to church, and then my AXO meeting (more about that later!).  Then I went home and spent an hour on the computer.  Let me tell you, this was a BIG deal to me.  With my new super busy schedule, I hardly ever have time to get on here and just look at Facebook or blog or whatever.  It was really really nice to just relax for a little while.  That's what Sunday afternoons should be for, after all!

After I chilled for a while, Ashley and I went to WalMart to get more ribbon to make bows.  WalMart on Super Bowl Sunday - craaazy!

We grabbed some food from Panda Express and headed over to Alex's to watch the game!!  Zach, Jason, and some other friends were there, and it was fun! We were all pulling for the Giants, so we were all happy with the outcome. 

Even though I had homework, I was too sleepy to get up off my caboose and go home to do it, so we stayed and watched The Voice afterward.  I don't regret my decision. 

So it was a wonderful weekend.  Those are the times that I live for :)

What did you do for Super Bowl Sunday?

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…

Dating at 28 vs Dating at 21

I was just thinking the other day. I (over) think quite often. Sometimes it's good because it causes reflection, and this reflection was good.

I never really thought about the fact that I might be dating at 28 years old. I was never, EVER in a rush to get married, but there was a time when I assumed I'd be married by now. Looking back, it's interesting to see how things have changed from the time I was 21 until now, and why it's a really good thing I am still dating at 28.

All people are different. One of my best friends met her husband at 14. I have friends in their 30s that aren't married. Each person and situation are unique.

With that being said, I know that personally, I would not have been ready for marriage at 21. Or 22. Or even 25.

Dating at 21 for me was kind of like "What can you do for me? How can you make ME happy?" At 28 I've realized it should be "What can we do for God? What will make Him happy? And how can I make YOU happy?"
I had…

The Reality of Sin

Yesterday I was blessed to sit through THREE amazing church services. Lately, I feel like I really need to absorb as much of the Word as I can on Sundays in order to thrive through the week. It is so easy to get caught up in the stress of daily life, and I've found that the best way to combat that is to be poured into through spiritual teaching. I can't pour into my students or my family or my friends or my middle school girls on Wednesday nights if I'm not constantly growing and learning. 

It's also really cool / interesting to sit at different churches with entirely different groups of people and hear the Word presented in different ways.

Different churches appeal more to families or young people or older people for different reasons.

One thing I realized as I sat in my home church yesterday morning (OakView Baptist) is that although we don't have the lights and the music and coffee, we do hear the Word in a way that really gets deep into your soul.

It's a trend …
