Enjoying Christmas!

Hey Everyone! Can you believe that Christmas is in 7 days!!!! Wowza! I am excited but also a little sad! I am known for being extreamly sad when I have to take down my decorations and when the festivities are over. I can't help it! I just love this time of year so very much. But I always try to be excited for the new year and find something to plan for! I love planning! Well, Tim and I are going to continue to focus on our fitness goals and try to be in the best shape of our lives! I know we can do it! We are both very pumped and ready to go.....we just want to make sure we eat all the Christmas goodies that will be lying around the house before we officially start! I have already lost close to 45 lbs, so I know I can do this and reach the rest of my goal!!!! Who's with me?! I am also excited to see what the Lord has in store for our lives this year! I plan to serve Him and live for Him like I never have before! I am His! I hope everyone enjoys these last few days before Christmas! Don't be stressed! Just enjoy every moment you have with friends and family!!! Thank you God for coming to save us and for being with us today and in every moment of our lives!

Mom loves it when I get everything out! (, if your reading this!) Love you! Then we have the musical later that night. Sunday is church and then the musical. Should be a great weekend! Some really nice people where I work gave me a tin of popcorn for Christmas yesterday! It is from the Popcorn Factory and it is amazing! There are a bunch of different flavors.

It's Tuesday....

Hey all! Well, another week has rolled around. I had a great weekend. I did a lot of fun Christmasy stuff that I wrote about in my last post. It was fun! But I did miss Tim a lot. Sadly, MU lost to those sooners! I can't let Tim go anywhere though.....I got a report from Keith and Brenda that at the resturant they ate lunch at Saturday, several of the waitresses were wanting to know if Tim was single!!!! hahaha! I'm glad to know that Tim proudly showed off his wedding band! lol! I can't help it I am married to a hottie!! I definitly got lucky on that one! Anyway....last night we had dress rehearsal for our Christmas musical. It went pretty well. My feet were killing me though!!! And I was wearing flats! I hope a lot of people come and hear about the real meaning of Christmas and are changed! Brandi and I talked last night and we are going to be in charge of Thanksgiving dinner next year!!! lol! No, seriously...we are! We are both pretty excited about it. We have a whole year to plan and practice! It will be the best Thanksgiving ever! Or we might be calling on Papa Johns!

Christmas Baking

Happy Weekend everyone!!! Well, I am excited about this weekend! I will miss my hubby though. Tonight he is going to be playing with his games! lol! While I do some Christmas baking and stuff. Last night I wrapped a few presents! I LOVE wrapping! Tomorrow, Tim is going to the Big 12 game....OU vs. MU! I have rehearsal for the Christmas musical at church and then I am going to do some more Christmas baking. I don't want the season to go by too quickly. I am trying to savor every moment! haha! If you haven't figured it out yet, I am a Christmas nut! Let's see.....oh, we had a delicious dinner last night! We made a country breakfast. We had biscuits and gravy, eggs and thick toast! It was soooooo yummmy! Then we had some caramel apple slices for dessert. Have I mentioned lately that I LOVE my husband? He is so wonderful and I am so thankful to God that he brought us together. We have some much fun together every single day. Oh, Brandi.....have fun on you anniversary vacation! Happy 3 years! I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Good Day! Well, I had a great birthday last week. Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes! I went out shopping and went to Mr. Yens with the fam. It was a lot of fun! I am now all ready for Christmas. The house is fully decorated and I have all of my shopping done!!! Wow! Now I am just going to enjoy the season and the festivities.

Hey! Sorry I haven't blogged in a long time! Last Sunday we got some family photos made. Maddie did very well! There are lots of good pics of Maddie for us to choose from! I am so proud of her! haha! I have gone jogging 2 times this week! I plan to go 2 more times...hopefully! I have been really sore though. Let's see....Saturday we are going to Sam's to get stuff for Thanksgiving! whoo hoo!!! That will be tons of fun! I am working on my blanket again. It is so relaxing to do projects like that. Me and my mom are going to make some lap blankets for some sweet old ladies in nursing homes. I am really excited about that. The new air freshners in the bathrooms at work smell like classic bubble gum!!! Everytime I go in there, it makes me really want some bubble gum! haha! I am really really excited for next week! Why you ask......well, Wednesday Tim is letting me put up my Christmas stuff (since church is on Tuesday), Thursday is Thanksgiving, and Friday is my birthday which is also BLACK FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!! I am sooooo pumped! Can't wait! I love this time of year. Well, I hope everyone has a great day and weekend! Love you guys!

Say Hey, It's A Good Day...

Hello everyone! I was driving to work this morning and that song was on the radio....say hey,it's a good day, even if things arn't going my way, Jesus is Lord and I am saved, so say hey, it's a good day! I have been singing that all day! It's a good thing to remember. I am having a great day actually. Last night we went to the grocery store, cleaned the house some and watched our evening shows. It was fun. We also had some golden delicious apples with carmel! Yummo!!! Maddie is going to get a haircut on Saturday. She is soooooo shaggy! It is terrible! I feel like a bad mom! lol! When we called to make her appointment at the Pampered Paws Pet Spa and Resort, it was so funny cause they asked our last name and then they were excited and said Maddie! It made us so happy that they remember our little Maddie and they said they were excited to see her Saturday! She LOVES the Pampered Paws! haha! :) Well, tonight I am hitting the gym and finishing my laundry. Tim is going to play b-ball I think. It should be a great evening! Hope everyone has a good day!!!

Election Thoughts

First, I am thankful to have been born in this great country. We are very blessed to live here and have the many rights and freedoms that we have. It was great to see that many people get out to vote yesterday. I don't know what will happen in the future. But, the only thing I do know is that GOD is still GOD! He is in control and is not surprized by anything that has happened or will happen. Everyone be praying for our country and our leaders. I just remind myself that no matter what happens, I have a Lord and Savior who leads and directs my life and my hope is in Him! Neither Obama or McCain is going to change anyone's life. Everyone needs Jesus Christ! Let's be praying....and share the good news of the only man who can change your life....JESUS!

Halloween 08

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday to all! Did everyone have a good weekend? I hope so. I had a wonderful weekend. Halloween was so much fun! I will try to post pics tomorrow on my blog. Then the missionaries from Uruguay were in town and spoke at church. It was so much fun getting to see them again! Tim had to work on Saturday and I went to the church work day on our new land! It was amazing to see where our new church will be and everyone working so hard to prepare for it. It brought tears to my eyes cause Bro. Noble was there and Bro Eddie. It was just a special time that I will look back in 50 years and have cool memories. Then Saturday night we spent time with the missionaries. Then Sunday was focused on missions and it was awesome to hear how much the church gave to missions....almost $280,000....i think that was it! How awesome! Praise the Lord! I can't wait till I get to go back to Uruguay someday. I have been praying that the Lord allows us to do that someday. Tonight we are going to see the missionaries again before they leave. I think we are also going to try to go to the gym! haha! It's been awhile! Does anyone like the drink Squirt? Well, it is my new favorite beverage! I just tried it for the first time a few weeks ago. Definitly try are missing out! Well, that was my weekend! I will try to post pics tomorrow. Bye! Oh, and Brandi what happened to your blog????????!!!!!!!!

Thursday, October 30, 2008

Hey! I am still pretty sore today! haha! I am crazy!!! Tonight, Tim and I have to find our Halloween costumes. We have to find them at the thrift store, cause we don't want to spend hardly any money. So, that is our mission tonight. And I really need to do some things around the house. What is everyone being for Halloween? We are helping at the youth party tomorrow, so it will be fun to see everyone's costumes! I hope everyone who is sick feels better really soon! Brandi, give Mr. Bear a hug for me! Well, that's it for now! Peace out!

Beautiful Chin Music.....:)

Hey everyone! Well, Tim and I sometimes watch WWE wrestling. Then I always try to do the moves, you know....WELL...last night I was trying to do a move called Beautiful Chin Music by Shawn Michaels! Love him by the way! Well, I go up with both legs in the air, doing my thing...then I come back down to land and my foot slipped on the kitchen floor and I bit it..HARD! I was so shocked, so was everyone else. But, then everyone started laughing at me uncontrollably. So, my wrist and my right side is pretty sore today. I probablly won't be doing anymore WWE moves for awhile!! lol! On a different note, I am SO EXCITED TO BE AN AUNT AGAIN!!!!!!!!! Ahhhhh! I can't wait! Brandi..I can hardly wait! Congrats again! love you! I will also be an aunt on Tim's side. Josh and Jen are prego too! But, sadly I won't get to see that nephew as often since they live in KC. :( But, I will love them just the same. Being an aunt is just the BEST! Well, I better get back to work! Have a spooktacular day and Halloween!

The Slanket

I'm having a pretty good day today! I am excited for church tonight! My parents are home safely! They are both tan! And they had a great time. I am so glad they are home though!!! (mom if you are reading this...i thought you were going to post a comment!! :) ) Well, I just drank almost 70 oz. of water! whoohoo!!!!!!!!! But, now I need a soda! haha! I wish Halloween would be over with so I can start putting out my Christmas stuff! I can hardly wait for all the Christmas festivities. I am singing christmas songs in my head right now! Last night on tv, I saw something called a Slanket. It is like a huge fleece blanket with sleeves attached so you can sit with it on but still have your arms free to do stuff. I really want one of those! lol!!!! I am sure everyone is laughing at me right now! That's one of those things I wish I would have thought of first and I could have made millions! Tim told me he could make me one himself by cutting the sleeves off one of my sweatshirts and sewing them on to one of our blankets! hahaha! But I said NO! I want the Slanket! Anyways! Enough with the randomness.......have a good night everyone!

I am soooo sleepy!

Goodness! I am just so sleepy! I have really been trying to go to bed earlier each night...but sometimes we get too caught up in what's on t.v. Oh, my parents get back from their trip tonight! It sounds like they had a really fun time! I wish I would have been with them. Florida, shopping, beach, sleep...not to shabby! It's gonna be cold this week! yeah!!! love it. But, all of my sweaters are under the bed in a space saver vacuum bag! Brandi...I am going to have to borrow your vacuum again! haha! this weekend we are going to close our pool! Finally! The Hales told me that one time they didn't close their pool until Thanksgiving weekend! I really didn't want to break that record. Well, I guess that is all for now. Everyone stay warm and enjoy your day! :)

Wednesday, October 15, 2008


Good morning everyone! Well, I am trying something new....I am getting up every morning when Tim gets up. Normally I just sleep another hour. But, I have been thinking that I could do a lot in that hour. One, I could see Tim before he leaves for work. Two, I won't rush around like a crazy lady. Three, I can spend more time with the Lord. Basicly, it's all good! If just won't be lazy and sleep another hour I could be doing so much more and enjoying my mornings instead of dreading them. Normally, I just get up and throw myself together and rush out the door. I have been doing my Bible study and prayer time in the evenings, but I have always wanted to do them in the morning. The Lord tells us to rise early and spend time with Him. My day is already going better. On a different note, I made a yummy dish last night. It was called Nacho Bake. Tim loved it! I always feel proud when Tim asks for me to make the meal I know he actually liked it! haha! A shout out to my brother...I don't think he reads this...but Happy Birthday yesterday! He turned 25! I can't beleive it! Wow! Everyone have a great day!

It's almost the weekend!!!

Hey yall! I am so excited it is the end of the week! almost! I am excited, but then a little sad cause Tim might have to work on Saturday. Sometimes Bass Pro has mandantory overtime. So....he probably won't get to go to the skeet shoot at church! That might be for the best!! lol! :) Oh my goodness...I have my outfit ready for Cowboy Days tomorrow! I can't wait. Tim and I might look a little ridiculous, but we love going all out! I can't forget to bring my camera. Last year I got a lot of funny pics of everyone. I am going to a baby shower tonight, so that should be fun! I always love looking at all the cute baby stuff! Does anyone watch the Unit? This week's episode was insane. One of my favorite episodes ever. Well, I had better get to work. The engine light was on in my car for a few days and now it is off! PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!!!!!!! Hope everyone has a beautiful Thursday!

Tuesday, October 7, 2008


Hey everyone! Not much to say today. I am kinda stressed at work. Just lots of stuff going on and lots to do. Meanwhile, I am trying to plan what to wear to Cowboy Days on Friday. Tim has his outfit already. I am not sure what I am going to wear yet. Tim is going Skeet shooting on Saturday with all the church men....I sure hope he doesn't shoot himself or anyone else! lol! He has not shot a gun in a long long time! Might be a little rusty! I will stay at home on Saturday and work on the house. And Tim has requested me to make one of my special recipes for him on Saturday. So, I will be working on that. Well, not too much more going on. I hope everyone has a nice day. Some leaves are starting to turn! I am excited about that. :) Love you!

Hooray for Friday!

Happy Friday Everyone! I love Fridays and I love the weekend! It's just GOOD!!! I have lots of stuff to do this weekend, but it will all be fun. I have been so very lazy this week. Not much energy! Tim and I have just been laying around like sloths every night. No running or going to the gym. Shame Shame...I know! Tonight we are going to Aaron's football game at HHS. It is their Homecoming, so at least I will get to see all the girl's in their dresses. That is always fun! Oh...I forgot to share with everyone....I am becoming a real cook! lol! I have been cooking from this recipe book that I have had forever, just never used. I am loving it and Tim is LOVING it! haha! The meal I made last night was so delish! I am proud of myself. I used to only make frozen meals etc. So, I will keep everyone updated on my cooking journey. I hope you all have an awesome weekend! Loves!!!

Happy Monday!

Well, it is another dreaded Monday! Yuck! I wish we only worked 2 days and had 5 days for fun! Oh, wouldn't that be nice! Please continue to pray for Tim's grandma Yates. She is still haning on. They are putting her on Hospice today. Last night the Salem choir was great! They came and sang at our church. It was an awesome night of worship! Then we had potluck!!! Probably the best potluck I have had in a long long time! Tim started his new job today! Pray for him! I know he is just going to do an awesome job! Tonight, hopefully I will get to see my longtime friend, Kristi! She is in town, I am going to see her tonight! I don't know if I will have time to go running or not....we shall see! I am eating my mom's chicken and noodles for lunch today....left over from potluck! They are tasty! I hope everyone has a beautiful day today! I have a lot of stuff to do at work..but I am going to keep my head up, cause the Lord is in control! He is my strong tower! (p.s. I love that song!) Loves!

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Today I am a little sad. I just found out a precious old man, 93 yr. old to be exact just passed away. He is a member of Hamlin where I work. I just loved him so very much. But I know that he is in heaven right now, seeing his wife and worshipping at the feet of Jesus. I will miss him, but I am glad that he is home. On a different note, I went running again last night! This is becoming routine! WOW! Imagine that! If it is not too late, I plan to run when I get home from church tonight. I actually kinda like it....weird. Did I just say that? Tim is not feeling well today. He was supposed to teach the youth tonight in Jared's place, but he is pretty weak so Brian is going to fill in on such short notice. Thank you Brian! I found some really cool 80's tees on the internet the other day. I am making a list already! haha! They have all the classics! Well, i guess I will wrap it up! Have a good afternoon......Love!

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Happy Tuesday!

Hola and Happy Tuesday to each of you! Sorry I have not blogged for a few days! It just slips my mind or I am just being lazy! haha! Well, we have had quite the time the past few weeks. But God has been Good and FAITHFUL! Tim finally was able to find a new job. (for those who don't know...he is back to school to get his teaching degree.) We couldn't find a job for him anywhere! I guess with all the college kids back in school and was slim pickins! But, the Lord is good and opened a door for a perfect job at Bass Pro! It is perfect hours for his school! Praise the Lord! We were getting ready to settle for Tim to be a used car salesman....but then the Lord came through!!!!!!!! lol! We are still laughing about that! I am super excited for this Friday. We have over 400 people from our church going to see the movie Fireproof! It is going to be an awesome time for all married couples. It is going to be date night for us and I just can't wait! My hubby packed my lunch for me this morning! haha! He is too precious! He put some tropical marshmallows in a baggie for me to snack on! Last night we had strawberry jello with marshmallows for dessert! Oh....and last night I went running! I am definitly feeling it today. Ouch!!! Well, that's about it for today. Peace out!

I'm still Alive!

Good afternoon! Well, first off, sorry to my mommy-in-law....I have let her down with not blogging for a few days!!! :) No worries, I am back! She also reminded me that it is only 100 days till Christmas!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah! I can't wait! Did you know that my birthday is on black Friday this year? How did I get so lucky? I am going to start saving now, so I can find some good deals on my b-day! Last night we went to the grocery store for the first time in almost a month! We really had nothing in the fridge! So, I had a nice lunch today....and we are making some chicken and mashed potatoes for dinner tonight. We are having Revival this week at our church. It has been awesome. I just love Bro. Bill Stafford. This is the last night of revival services tonight. Everyone try to be there if you don't want to miss it! Love you all! Bye!

I went with the Chargers!

Good Morning! It was really funny...on my last post, 3 people left me a comment and all 3 told me to cheer for a differnt NFL team!! haha! Well, after much thought and study, I decided to go with the Chargers. I read Tim's Sports Illustrated NFL Preview from cover to cover and I think I like them! So, I am now a Charger fan! :) Sorry if I didn't pick your team. I am soooooo sleepy this morning! I need a pick me up. I might listen to some music to pump me up! I just started a new Bible study last night. Last night was about how God delights in us! He created us and we bring joy to Him! I am looking forward to this study. I am wearing pearls this morning and I feel fancy! I thought they went well with my shirt. I have my space heater going next to my desk this morning, cause it is freezing! Enjoy today everyone! It's a new day God has given us to serve Him and bring joy to Him!! :)

Tuesday, September 9, 2008


It is another lovely morning! We don't have the air on in our house anymore...just the windows open. I love it. But it was 64 in the house when I woke up this morning! Maddie has been driving me nuts lately! All night she barks and howls at the neighbor dogs since the windows are open. I have not been sleeping well cause of her!!! Bless her little heart...I guess?! Then I have to get up for work and Maddie just all cozy and warm in the bed sleeping! Sometimes I wish I were her for a day! Anyways! I am picking out an NFL team to cheer for this year. I don't normally watch NFL, but I want to. I am learning all about the different teams and then I am going to pick a team and follow them! I am kinda excited about it! Right now it is between the Colts, Chargers and the Vikings. Any suggestions from people out there? I am open! Tim said I could get a team shirt too! :) I have the best husband in the whole wide world! I am drinking a delicious Tropicana No Pulp orange juice right now! Delish! Oh, for all of my festive fall friends out there, this Saturday is my fall decorating day! Everyone should think about putting their's out too! We are approaching mid-September! It is time! I can't wait for Saturday! Love you all and happy decorating!!!

We serve an awesome God!

Good Morning to one and all. I am in a pretty good mood this morning. I am enjoying the rain we have been having. I just finished a Bible study on Resting in Him. I really enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. I am just praising God because he is amazing. No matter what happens in this life, he is there. We can rest in His strength and power. We just have to completly put our faith and trust in Him. He is our strong tower, deliverer, sheild, our rock! He is mighty! I am just kinda pondering on all this today, and thought I would share it. I am looking forward to this weekend! I have nothing going on!!! WOW! That is a first in a long time. I think I might organize some things in the garage and office. I think we are going to close up our pool for the season too. How sad. But, I am way excited for fall. I love the crisp air and leaves. It is wonderful. I have a Lean Cuisine French Bread pizza for lunch today. Delicious. So, I am looking forward to that. I am going to the gym tonight like I promised yesterday. For real!

Back to Reality!!!

Good afternoon to all! Well, Tim and I had a wonderful, relaxing vacation! It was sooooo hard to come back to work yesterday. But, that is life! I heard from one (Brandi) that she missed my blogs everyday.....did anyone else miss my blogs? Is anyone reading this???? Well, thanks Brandi for the love! On our trip we went to the zoo, shopping, Worlds of Fun, Harry Truman's house, toured mansions, got massages :), ate lots of good food....and just had a good ole time! You can see all my pictures on myspace or facebook. I am thankful for the time off and that we had the opportunity to get away. It was lovely! I got my hair trimmed up last night and I got my eyebrows waxed!! OUCH! I do it fairly often, but it still hurts bad every single time! But, I do love how they look after a fresh waxing! I am excited for tonight. I always look forward to Wednesdays. I really need to go to the has been awhile. I need some motivation. Anyone? Must go, must eat healthy, must drink water, must get enough sleep.....this stuff is tiring! I hope everyone has a delightful evening. I WILL go to the gym tomorrow! Promises Promises! :)

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

I am a rowing machine!

Good Morning! Last night we worked out again. As my blog title says...I rowed again! Tim did it with me and we (or maybe just me) pretended we were in the Olympics! It's my new favorite thing to do at the gym! I am going to work really really hard today at work since I will be off the rest of the week! I can't wait till 5:00 p.m.!!! I don't have much to say this morning. I will brag on my sweet hubby for a second. I just love him to pieces! He is my best friend in the world and I just have fun with him every single day. If you read this today....I LOVE YOU! I hope everyone has a wonderful day. Oh... I don't know if I will get to blog during my vacation. If not, try to make it without reading my blogs everyday. I know it will tough. But I will be back soon! :) Peace out!

Smokey smokes.

Hello to all! Last night we were making breakfast for dinner! We were making waffles in our waffle iron that we never use. We were also making sausage and eggs. Well, I guess our sausage pan got a little too hot and our smoke detectors started going off!! haha! First the one in our dining room went off numerous times. Then the one in the hall started going off too! We had the back door open and the kitchen window open. Maddie started freaking out and spinning in circles chasing her tail. Poor thing. This morning when I got up the house still smelled of sausage! We also went to the gym last night. Tim put me through some basketball drills. :) He loves to work with me on things like that! I also did the rowing machine for 1,000 meters. Just like on the Olympics! Then I did the EFX for 30 min. It was a fun evening. I am looking forward to Thursday. Our mini vacation starts then! Can't wait!!! Everyone have a fantastic day. And remember to take caution while cooking sausage! Love to all.

Hola Everyone! Today I am just working away. I am having a good day so far. Not much to report here. I am trying to drink a lot of water I guess that's good. The Redeem Team USA rocks my face off! They are undefeated and will win the gold! Oh yeah! I have a busy weekend planned....get to spend lots of time with my sis-in-law....shout out! Which I love. We are going to see Little Women the Musical. I am pretty excited. The movie is wonderful and makes me cry, so we will see about the musical. I will let you know how it goes. I am really looking forward to fall. I can't wait to pull out all of my fall decor! It makes me REALLY HAPPY!!! Ahhh! So excited! :) I hope everyone has a fun weekend. I probably won't blog tomorrow....maybe...but maybe not. Love everyone. Bye!

God Is Good!

I have had a wonderful past few days. I am so thankful that I got to spend some time with the Uruguay girls. It was just precious times I will never forget. Last night I stayed up till 3am talking, laughing and dancing to latin music! It was so fun. The pic is of the girls. We are drinking is kinda like tea. It is very strong. It is a huge part of the culture there. Pray for the girls...2 of them will be in college in Arkansas and the youngest will go back to Uruguay without her sisters, with her parents. A lot of changes are going on for them. I love them all dearly. This evening we had a choir event. It was fun. We won the volleyball match and the ladderball match!!! oh yeah! But now I am ready for bed! Tomorrow we are having ribs with tim's family for his b-day. It is a tradition. :) I am just feeling thankful right now. No matter what we might go through in life...God is so good! Night Night.....I am off to bed! zzzzzzz......

Wednesday, August 20, 2008

Hello Everyone!

Good day to you! I am quite excited for tonight. The missionaries from Uruguay will be at our church tonight! I can hardly stinkin wait!!! It will be really sad when they leave, but I am glad I get to see them for at least a little bit! I got my friend and sis-in-law Brandi (shout out....whoowhoo) to start a blog too. Check her's out...My brother is going to start one too! I must say I have the most precious, adorable and amazing nephew in the world!! Last night I got to see him for a lil bit, and I just love him to pieces! I thank God he let me be an's awesome! I had some delicious pineapple for lunch today! I could eat an entire pineapple by myself in one sitting. My sweet hubby buys whole ones and slices it for me into cute rings. I love my husband by the way. I am in a pretty good mood today also! Feeling better! Well, gotta go get some work done. Everyone have a marvelous day! Peace out!

Still a truckin.....

Good Morning Everyone! Well, I am feeling a little bit better today. Last night I went to Weight Watchers.....and....I lost 1 1/2 lbs!! whoohoo!!! I am up to 42 1/2 gone! It has taken FOREVER! And I still have more to lose. But, it is a journey and I am learning every single day. I am going to keep on truckin! Even if it takes me another year. lol! I am really looking forward to tomorrow. The Uruguay missionaries wil be at church! I can't wait!!!!! I pray that God calls us to go on another mission trip, cause I really really want to go again! If you have never gone on a mission trip before, you don't know what you are missing. It is such a neat experience telling people about Christ in a place where most of them have never heard the TRUTH! They don't have any evangelical churches. I hope everyone gets the opportunity to go someday. However, let's not forget that we can be missionaries right where we live everyday! I need to find out if my neighbor knows Christ....I have a huge mission field right in my neighborhood! Well, I guess I better get to work. Everyone have a fantastic day!

Is it Monday AGAIN?!!!

I hate Mondays! I really don't like today. I have not been feeling that well, and I really didn't want to get out of bed today. Pray for me if you think of it...I feel like I have a virus of some sort. We had an awesome day at church yesterday. In our small groups we talked about Peter. We talked about how God can still use us, even when we mess matter how bad it is. All we have to do is just trust God and put our complete faith in Him, and he can use us in ways we can't even imagine. We also talked about are we living for ourselves, to please others or to please God. That's a tough one. A lot of times we say we are living for God, but our lifestyles don't back it up. The things we say, our attitudes, what we watch and listen to....After evening church we went to the store to pick up a few things for the week. I got my favorite Raisin Bran Crunch cereal! Love it! But I was so sad this morning...I didn't eat any cause I thought it might upset my stomach...ya know with the whole virus thingy! lol! But maybe I can have some tomorrow. Well, I had better get to work. I hope everyone has a good day.

Glad it's Saturday!

Good Morning everyone! I had a fabulous evening last night! We had some good friends over last. It was a lovely time eating, watching the Olympics and playing games. I am thankful for good friends. Then something really awesome happened.....a few of the missionary kids from Uruguay stopped by our house. We had no idea they were in town. What an amazing surprize!!! We went to Uruguay on a mission trip last July. It was such a life changing experience I will never forget. I still pray for all of those people and that country. We had a fun time talking and fellowshipping. But they had to leave fairly quickly since they had a 5:00 a.m. flight this morning. But I will see them this Wednesday. :) Their dad will be speaking at our church. I am sooooo excited! This afternoon I will probably do some work around the house. I really enjoy working on my house and organizing things. Well, I better get off of here. I am headed off for youth visitation. Pray that we have good visits and that we can share the love of Christ with everyone we meet today!

New blogger here.....

Hello! I guess I am a blogger now? I don't really know what blogging is or what it is all about. But, it looks like fun! I don't know if anyone will actually want to read this.....Well, I have been obsessed with the Olympics! I don't want them to end. I have not been getting as much sleep as I should because I have been staying up super late watching every minute. I love Shawn Johnson...she won the silver. I wish she would have won gold...but Nastia was good too. I have a busy weekend planned. We are having company over tonight. Then we are having breakfast with Tim's fam tomorrow morning. Then we have youth visitation in the afternoon. I would love to go swimming after that, but I don't think it will be warm enough! How sad!!! I hope everyone (if anyone reads this) has an amazing weekend. Enjoy your weekend.
