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…

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…
