Valentine's Day Link Up!

As usual, I'm late on posting something haha. I actually did this post yesterday, but I'm just getting around to publishing it.  This is a link-up with Becky at "From Mrs. to Mama." I've added the link-up button to the side of my page and I'll leave it there for a few days in case there are any procrastinators like me that still wanna take the survey haha.


1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
Zach and I have been together since August 1, 2010

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
Well, during my second sophomore year in college (hahaha) - Spring 2010 to be exact - I had a radio show with two friends, Shannon and Nick.  One Friday night in March, Nick decided to bring his friend Zach to Libby Hill Seafood (where I work) to visit me.  From then on, things just kinda grew...Alex and I hung out with Nick and Zach and their friends a lot, and by June, Zach and I decided that we really liked each other :)
[[mushy mushy]]

3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}
Not married, but he's definitely a prospect ;)
Haha jk...
Zach is everything I've ever prayed for in a guy, so I think that God is probably telling me something.

4. If you are married, where did you get married at? Big or small wedding? If not, where would you like to get married? And will it be big or small?
I want a HUGE wedding, and I want it to be in a large, traditional church (i.e., my childhood church home, Green Street Baptist)

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
Ummm...he likes to call me C.O.W. - Crazy Old Woman.
So loving hahaha

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
1. The thing I love most is his love for God and the way it exudes from him through his everyday actions.  To me, that is the most important attribute to look for in a significant other.
2.  I also love his sense of humor - that is a must. I love to laugh. I have to laugh.  Sometimes he acts like he's 12 and I love that.
3.  I love how much we have in common, but also our differences.  For example, we're both very childlike at times, and we both know how to be serious when we need to be.  But when it comes to math, business, finances, whatever, I know nothing and Zach is great at all that.

7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
I'm not gonna lie - my ideal proposal would be with a flash mob singing "Everlasting Love." JUST LIKE ON THAT TV SHOW!!!!!!!!!

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
Flowers and teddy bears, definitely.  And not just on special occasions - a lot of times I get stuff like that just because.  That's the best.

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
BOTH! I like to have the best of both worlds.

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant other one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
Star in a movie together (get us the hook up, Chanelle)

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
Well we went to the basketball game at HPU for a little while, then we had reservations at Bravo! at Friendly Center.  It was really yummy.

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
Noooo. Just a fun evening :)

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
PRAY TOGETHER. Keep God first in the relationship, and if it's His will, everything else will fall into place.

14. Show us a picture of what love means to you.
This picture means love to me.  It is a telegram that my grandfather sent my grandmother many Valentine's Days ago.  This is their first Valentine's Day together in Heaven.  They were a wonderful example of Christian love and devotion in a marriage, and I hope that one day my marriage will be just as wonderful as theirs was.

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 …
