High Five for Friday


I cannot believe it is Friday....I have to admit that I am partly sad it is Friday because it means my Spring Break is over. But, I like to look on the bright side of things and that means that I have 26 days (just 5 weeks) left of work before Summer Break YAHOOO, and only a month until I graduate with my Masters. It's all about perspective.

Since it was Spring Break, I had many highs for this week, but I will restrain myself and share with you only the most exciting.

ONE: My new blog is finally up and I am so so excited about it. I have been working on it for weeks and I think it captures my personality pretty well. So look around and let me know what you think :)

TWO: On Tuesday my rockstar mom volunteered to help me dig out flower beds. PHEW I had no idea the time and work that was. I thought I could dig them out, put that black stuff down so weeds don't grow (you can see by my gardening vocabulary that I have quit the green thumb NOT), plant flowers and put in the mulch all in an afternoon. How wrong was I!? Well, Momma and I worked for hours and this is what we got done. Tomorrow Mom and Dad are coming over and we are going to put that black stuff down and put in the black rubber mulch I bought. Pictures to come for sure.

THREE: Each year our church hosts a women's event/conference called Adored. This year we have the amazing Holly Wagner speaking!  Tuesday we had our first planning meeting. Girls, if you are in the area you really will not want to miss this. The dates are September 7 and 8. Check here for more information. 
It is honestly one of my favorite weekends of the entire year. Who doesn't love a weekend to focus on Jesus with all her favorite girlfriends?!

Here is a peek from last year

FOUR: I had a shopping day with my momma on Wednesday. We went to Hobby Lobby for me to get supplies for me to start my newest project, stencil painting curtains (post on that later), and I got my beloved Starbucks!!! (Or as my friend calls it "Mooncoins")
:: Oh yes it was a good day!::

FIVE: In our youth services we started a brand new series called "Tattoo Me."  It is all about what it means to be "marked" by Jesus. Not just living a life of "I cants" anymore (I can't party, I can' drink, I can't hang out with those people anymore, I can't....) but living a life where people recognize the Jesus within you. It just started Wednesday and is totally stirring something in myself and so many others. LOVE IT!!!

 For even if the mountains walk away and the hills fall to pieces, My love won't walk away from you, my covenant commitment of peace won't fall apart. The God who has compassion on you says so.
Isaiah 54:10
