Self portrait week finale!

FridaySaturday The rest of my Self portraits from self portrait week!

I went to My families house this weekend, It was an interesting time.
Some of the highlights were driving there with Jessie and driving home with her too, let's just say that she saved a bit of my sanity. I got to go to Jake's Graduation party, and meet his girlfriend Kelly. (Which I loved because she tells him what's up)
I also had a re-uniting with a great friend, Gina. You will find her in that top picture! It has been 3 years since we have seen each other, since then she has been married, has 2 kids and I got married. SO...That was a huge piece of fun. And on top of that I had a bunch of friends who came to Josh and Michelle's baby shower. So I got to see Jenny and Sydney, Andrea and Chris and my cousin Paul. was a fine trip.

Todays photos were taken on my front porch! Which I love!
So the thing is, I am leaving town tonight for Imperial, the HOME LAND, so my photos of the day will have to be updated when I get back!
This week has been nuts. You would think that with my husband out of town I would throw on a movie and sip a glass of wine, but what ended up happening is...I went to work and did my job, then I followed by doing his. That is by no means a slam on him, he is at camp with kids, but there are kids here, so I had to fill in! By the way, I love filling in. If there is one thing on this earth that I know God made me good at, it is teaching the Word to people who are younger than I am. I mean that in the way that I am only good at it, because I am passionate about it.
on to other things, I guess it is out in the open now, Matt and Jodi, Mine and Andrew's best friends are moving to Eastern Europe, It is looking more and more like Prague. So pray for them as they are filling out the final paper work, and check out thier blog to see the adventure, there is a link right over there on your right. I am super sad about it, but only becuase I will miss them and wish that I could go!
So I was thinking today about my grandmother. My Dad's mom. We used to travel to Advance every weekend to visit her. It was almost a 3 hour drive, and I loved it. I had this really vivid memory today about sitting in her living room, dark outside, door open, and Hee Haw on the television. It was a nice little stroll down memory lane. what is something you remember about your childhood? that moment of complete serenity!!

Today's photo is taken in my kitchen!

Today is going to be crazy!! I have work, I have to let the carpet guys in to my in-laws house. i have to get ready for youth and a mission trip meeting tonight, I have to lock my in-laws house, and I have to do my regular 9-5! I don't know how tired I will be, But I am praying that the Lord truly blessed my lesson tonight! It is on the book of first John chapter 3~ i think we will have a good time!!

Anyway, say a prayer for my day!


I saw my brother and sister this morning. Well they came in last night. I got to see her 7 month pregnant belly. It was so great!! I have a little nephew in there. I was supposed to go to a movie tonight, and that didn't work out. Thank God, I didnt have to hang out alone. The Turnboughs graciously had me over for a barbeque. I got to play with Luke and hang out with Matt and Jodi and Wendi, so that was fun! (see other post so see who they are) Luke and I watered the flowers, and Luke watered me. Matt taught him how to call my car an infinity, and he learned to say actually. Which may be my favorite thing to hear him say. AND-Luke dances now, which is awesome!!!!

I love that family, they treat me like I am a part of it!!
Today's photo of me was taken in front of my garden. (coriopsis) (I have no idea how to spell that flower's name)
