(Some pictures from our Girl's Weekend this past weekend!)

Dear Collision Student Ministry Girls (Axios),
I don't know what I've done to deserve to be a part in your life (little or big) but I'm so glad I followed my Husband (who followed God) all the way to TN to meet y'all. You've taught me so much and even though there are times we won't always see eye to eye, I love you ladies. No matter what teenage drama you drag into my life, my heart is full because of the giggles, movie nights, heart to hearts, and hope that God will use me in a small way to build you into the woman of God He created.

Dear Sound Machine,
Thanks for being invented. I'd forgotten what a peaceful night's sleep was (thanks to Husband's awesome snoring skills.)

Dear Legs,
Time to start on that winter coat! No shave October-March!
(I kid. I kid.)
Sort of.
Hey, that's what leggings are for!

Dear Leggings,
You my dears, are magicians. The way you keep my legs warm AND hide the fact that I forgot to shave...words cannot express.

Dear Anyone That's Reading,
I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. I could say it's all routine and happy, but I'm afraid it's not. Prayers and happy thoughts are super appreciated. No matter what, God's in control and why would I fear in that? (Way easier said than done.)

Happy Tuesday, everyone!



It's a blog world rule to apologize and explain why you've been missing for, oh...like, 2 months.
But I'm not going to.
And you can't make me.

I will, however, fill you in with another one of my world famous "things" post.
(Okay, maybe not world famous...but I do see visitors from Germany. Shout out to my Germans!)

Want to feel really old? Plan a wedding for one of your girls from an old youth group you and your husband led way back when. Our sweet Kayla is going and getting herself hitched! I loved planning our wedding and I even had Kayla's help, so of course, I'm loving planning hers. January is coming super quick.

Speaking of Fall/Winter (sort of)...
It's Fall and almost Winter!
No more explanation needed.

Husband and I play this game. You see, I'm horrible at replacing the toilet paper. I'll grab the new roll, but I always forget to put it in the holder. To "teach me a lesson," he started to leave the empty rolls on my side of counter. Now we just hide the roll so the other person finds it. Drawers, jewelry box, shoes, dishwasher. Well, it just makes me laugh. So, the joke is on him and I haven't learned my lesson.

I have two jobs now. I work 4 days at a store downtown and 2 days at our church's preschool.
So, I love it.

Last weekend we took our youth on a Fall Retreat to Copperhill, TN. It was so beyond so much fun.
Here's the video, if you're into that kind of stuff...

I'm off to catch up on all my blog friends and see how many are now pregnant. (I always miss the announcements and end up congratulating you all embarrassingly late. Sorry.)

I promise to maybe have some semi regular writing schedule.
