Weekend Report

As usual, the weekend flew by-they always do! This one was wonderful, as most of them are. It was extra special, though. :)

Friday was an early release day at school.
ASHLEY GOT HER LICENSE!!!
We went to Country BBQ and let Margaret serve us our food.
I had to go to Petsmart because Emery ran out of food and *whoops* I can't ever go in there and get JUST dog food...
So Emery ended up with a pumpkin costume and a ski vest, ha!



Church youth trip to Steak n Shake and the bowling alley, where we had a really dank private room and guess what, I'M STILL TERRIBLE AT BOWLING! But it was super fun.



ON SATURDAY I WENT WITH BROOKE AND HER FAMILY TO HER ULTRASOUND APPOINTMENT TO SEE IF THE BABY WAS A BOY OR GIRL.
I hadn't seen one in person since I was ten years old and Ashley was a lil fetus, and oh my. Seeing that little baby move was amazing. It made me so emotional! Life is so precious, and that baby seemed to already have a little personality! It was SO sweet...

I am so grateful to have been able to share in that experience with one of my very best friends and her family. That's something I'll remember forever.





And it's a GIRL!!!


SO EXCITING!!! 
We spent the rest of the day shopping and eating pizza.
*celebrate*





Today, me and Joellyn accidentally twinned, which happens often because great minds think alike.

"Crimson, ox blood, red wine, burgundy, brick, dark cherry, maroon... Whatever you want to call it it doesn't matter, all that matters is that you get this color in your wardrobe stat. ...it looks great on all skin tones, it's vibrant, and it is beyond perfect for the fall season." -Julep.com

Love. This. Color. 
SOMUCH

The rest of the day was so great it got summed up in a FB status because #BlessingsAbound
ya know. gotta tell the world.




Bring it on, busy new OCTOBER week!

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…
