Happy Wednesday, y'all! Boy, I have been one BUSY BEE as I'm sure you all have been, too. :) Now for some things I love thanks to the lovely Jaime...
I'm loving... vacay! The "real" one is at the end of this month! But I still consider going "home" vacation to me. :)
I'm loving... that I have a hair appointment on Tuesday right before we leave. I always feel like a bran new woman with freshly highlighted hair! I'm thinking about getting bangs like this. What do you think?
I'm loving... this new recipe Lauren & I tried out last night. Boo for lovehead working late, YAY for friends who don't! :) Anyhoo - this stuff is AMAZING. I love, love, LOVE cold pasta & this was SO easy. Please - TRY IT!!!
I'm loving... that my sister's baby shower is next Saturday! I'm in charge of these cuties, a diaper cake, & all the napkins, plates, etc. Monogrammed acourse! ;)
I would like to get different patterns of pink, & do this for my niece's room.
& last but not least, my retreat I have been patiently awaiting for. Ever heard of, A Walk to Emmaus? I'm doing the Emmaus Chrysalis. The sweetest family I know here in L sponsors girls my age twice a year to go on this, & they picked me this go 'round! I have ALWAYS wanted to do a girls retreat for some time now, but was never sure how to get plugged in, or where one would be held.
My sponsors will pick me up on Thursday evening, take me to dinner & we will head out. It's about 30 minutes away from here, inside a beautiful canyon. Sally, the wifey sponsor will spend the weekend out there as she is very involved in it all. She explained it to me as a girls slumber party, & I love me one of those! :) She said the food, worship, & testimonies are all very overwhelming; in a good way. :)
I won't be taking my phone (GASP!!), a watch, or a camera. Yes, I am terrified. I won't know one single soul of there, besides Sally. Terrified again. I am actually really nervous, but very excited to spend almost 3 days with the Lord. Just me, God, beautiful surroundings, my Bible, & girls that want to grow in their relationship with Christ just as much as I do sounds wonderfully exciting.
I've heard nothing but amazing things about this retreat, & friendships you make that will last a lifetime. Please say a prayer for me! :)
If any of y'all have ever attended something like this, I would LOVE to hear about your experience! You can e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you made it this far into my post, have a great rest of the week! I cannot WAIT to report back & let y'all know how it went! :) Toodles!
