I wanna share more of the fun and happy things I do, and so much awesome stuff has happened recently, but I will start with this past weekend.
 
This past weekend was pretty wonderful. On Saturday morning, I got to enjoy my first AXO Theta Rho Theta (alumnae chapter) event. We had brunch at Cracker Barrel. I got to meet some lovely ladies I hadn't met before and reunite with some I hadn't seen in too long! It was really nice.
 
 
 
I also got to see Brooke and her family and Lovelyn again, and got LC to go from crying to sleeping so sweetly. What an accomplishment! I love that baby.
LOOK HOW CUDDLY AND PRECIOUS SHE IS!!
 
 
 
 
On Saturday afternoon, I met some friends at the UNC spring game in Chapel Hill. The game did a good job of satisfying my craving for football. Football in the spring = :)
It was a super nice day. The weather was fabulous. It was a really fun day -- much needed. It was good to get away to somewhere besides HP or Boone. Not that I've been unhappy either place, by any means, but it's just nice to visit somewhere you don't get to go a whole lot! Especially somewhere as beautiful as Chapel Hill. I've always loved CH in the Spring. My middle school Latin class used to go there for convention in April! I've missed it. 
 
 
 
 
I got to spend a lot of time with my precious Huskador baby. I love her to pieces, and she just basks in the spring weather.
She currently really enjoys riding in my lap while I drive as we listen to Hillsong (she loves "Hosanna") and I pet her soft and sweet fur.



 
 
 
 
On Sunday, we had a really nice time eating our usual family lunch. We went to one of my favorite places (Rainbow - my grandma is part of the reason we all love it so much).
Later that afternoon, I got to meet the new baby of my friends Zak and Cursty. Baby Zaylen is precious. I didn't get a picture! But I can't wait to see him again soon.
 
 

On Monday evening, I got to go back to HPU to lead a little ceremony for the graduating girls of Alpha Chi Omega. Most of these were girls we started the chapter with, and so it was very special and hard to believe that they are already graduating! I had a lot of fun seeing everyone and it was neat to be able to be there for the first time as the alumnae chapter president. I love wearing my badge and pearls and getting dressed up :)
 





Sorority sisters, babies, a football game, good food...
It was a fab weekend spent with family and great friends!

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…

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 …

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 …
