Hello there, so I realized today that it has been a week since I last posted. Turns out this blogging thing takes some getting used to. Anywho, I figured I would share a little about these past seven days. Oh, and forgive me, as I do not have that awesome blogger mindset yet to take fun pictures to document my days:
one. Having my sweet friend Becky visit me last weekend. Our activities consisted of shopping, watching hilariously-horrible Lifetime movies, laughing like fools, and of course eating...a lot. (My stomach was not too happy with me) I am so glad she was able to come and see my home!
two. Starting a new devotional She Reads Truth. Truly ladies, this one is crazy awesome! My friend had told me about it, but I was hesitant at first to start because I was currently reading through another devotional. Then I saw a woman whose blog I read doing it so I decided to give it a whirl. Let me tell you, the author, Cindy Beall is awesome. This reading plan has legit been identifying everything I've been struggling with recently, and some of the readings are my favorite passages of encouragement! I have really been challenged these past few days to open up to God. Also, knowing that countless other women are reading this plan with me is quite encouraging!!
three. Water parks. Mountain Creek in particular. Confused? Allow me to explain. On Tuesday, I helped out as a youth leader for my old youth group. I wasn't planning on going on this trip at first because I had gone every year while in my youth group, but when my youth pastor asked for help I couldn't say no. I am so glad I didn't! I got to spend the day with some pretty awesome teens (is that weird to say if I'm still a teen? Because they were only middle school-aged) Anyway, it was so fun, even though it was a tad chilly, because there were barely any lines!! All in all awesome.
four. Catching up with friends that I hadn't seen in a couple of weeks. Tuesday night a few friends and I roasted marshmallows and enjoyed chatting outside in the beautiful summer weather. Wednesday, my friend and I ventured to an outlet mall to catch some sweet deals. The shopping was not nearly as good as the conversations he and I had during the drive though. And last night, a couple of girlfriends and I met for some de-licious froyo and some much needed girl talk.
five. Continuing to try and figure out this blogging thing. I am currently looking for inspiration on how to jazz mine up a little!
Well, that's about it. I'm really going to try to be more frequent with these posts...and hopefully snap some pictures to add!
