Mission Trip


Tomorrow I am going with my youth group on a 2-and-a-half-day Mission Trip to Ringgold, GA!!! We are going to be doing construction for two families that got hit by the tornado April 27th.  We are all excited. 🙂

Please keep us in your prayers, and have an amazing weekend!

God Bless,


June Afternoons

On Saturday evening (yesterday) two of my sisters, Bess and Skylar, Bess’s husband and I got together at our church and had a wonderful night of worship!  We didn’t have a huge crowed, but we had a fun time.  I also made more sugar cookies, which were finished up by my church this morning.  Ha ha!

The sky is an amazing thing to me.  Clouds, I must say, are one of my “Favorite” things ever!  Sometimes you look up in the sky, and it looks like whipped cream.  Then other times there will be a gorgeous sunset or sunrise…Ah!  And the stars in the night…There are  so inspiring to me.

Well, I hope that everyone has had a good day?!  Sunday, again I must say, is one of “Favorite” days out of the week.  I really don’t know why, but I always feel happy on Sunday morning, even when I get 5 hours of sleep!  Enjoy these pictures.

This is the moon 🙂

This is a star!  (I zoomed in with my camera…It wasn’t really that big!)

So pretty!

Okay, these next few pictures are my favorites!

I took this in the StarBucks drive-thru.  NOTE: Always try to bring a camera with you!  You never know what you might see.

If you look closely, there is a heart shape. 🙂

Nothing beats a beautiful sky over an amazing pasture.

So pretty!!!

So this picture was taken while riding in the car.  I love it!  Most of these pictures were taken while riding in the car actually.

Anyway!  I love the sky!  Have a groovy evening, and God Bless.


Fire Works

Today I got to spend the WHOLE day with my baby brother, Cael!  It was a lot of fun. 🙂  We played with play-dough for most of the time, then we watched “The Wiggles” a few times in a row, and then we  made sugar cookies, and they turned out PERFECT!  Some of the best cookies I have ever tasted if I do say so myself.  Here are some pictures from our fun Sister & Brother day!

Here he is mixing away!  (Actually, in this picture he grabbed a hand full of flour and made a mess…I mean, what’s the fun of baking if there is no mess.  Lol)

“Big Smile!”  I said to him.  He finally smiled for me. 🙂

Waiting for me to finish getting ingredients!  (I took a long time finding everything)

Cael’s turn with the camera!!!!! 😀

Ha ha…

Now for a short play-dough break!

Okay, so after our play-dough break, we cut out the cookies then let them cool in the fridge for 30 min., then we put them in the oven to bake.  (Everyone came home shortly after they came out of the oven)

First cookie taste…..

Results were good! 😀

So, now I am going to share some pics of the beautiful frosted cookie!  (I had the time of my life trying to make the frosting…It took me way longer then it should have)

The first two cookies didn’t want to be nice. 😦  All of the other ones made up for those two though.

This last cookie was designed by my little sister, Esme. 🙂

Left over frosting…What a waste!!!  Oh well.  (I could always make more cookies… 🙂  Ha ha!)

Yeah!  That was my day.  Now I feel very educated from watching “The Wiggles”, very creative from playing with play-dough, and I feel like I am made out of powdered sugar frosting!

Have a wonderful weekend.  I’ll write soon…



First Day of Summer!

Well, yesterday was the first day of summer, and it WAS the day that I WAS going to post pictures, but that day is RIGHT NOW!!! 😀  So, obviously, I am a blogging slacker…I apologize.  Now I am posting pictures and hopefully they will load in the order I put them in!  There were SO many wedding pics to choose from, so I grabbed a few good ones…Enjoy!



That was a lot of pics…I am sorry if some don’t load and if some are doubled…You know how computers are!  When you need them to work, they don’t, and vice-versa. 🙂  Some really cute ones did not load, sadly, but I’ll post them next time.  Ha ha!


Good Night, and have a wonderful Thursday! 🙂



Father knows best…

Happy Father’s Day!

To all father’s out there…Thank you for everything, and God bless! 🙂


PS. My next post, which will be posted by Monday, June 20th, is going to be loaded with all sorts of pictures!  Because I have been lame and haven’t posted them yet, I’ll also give a report on my Charleston trip!!!  I apologize, truly.

Going away

I am leaving tomorrow at 12pm for South Carolina!

Summer is so exciting to me!  The pool is open, you eat a lot of ice cream, the 4th of July is wonderful, and my birthday…All I don’t like about summer is when it gets too hot, and all the bugs.  Blah!

If anyone is looking for a good book for “Summer Reading”, I recommend Castle Corona by Sharon Creech.  It is very good.  I am reading it right now.

Sharon Creech is one of my favorite authors.  Chasing Redbird and The Wonderer are my favorite books of hers.

Well, have a super-duper week, and I’ll be posting after Thursday I guess! 😀

God Bless,


PS. Another exciting thing about summer: Bathing suits!  I ordered a cute one-piece from http://www.delias.com the other day, red with little white polka-dots and a sweetheart neck line! 🙂  It’s cute.

Days gone by

Wow!  I am so sorry blog!  I have totally forgotten about you.  It has been a busy few weeks for me.  I’ve been tired too…

Fine, I’ll admit why I haven’t posted anything lately.  I have been hooked on Lost!!! The 2004-2010 TV show.  Ha ha 🙂  My sister and I have been watching it, and we are in season 4 right now.  It is SO good (I recommend it unless you don’t like seeing a lot of blood, blah)!  Most of it isn’t very realistic (in the story line), but then it is really realistic!  It has definitely scared me tremendously!

So, talking about other things now.  I am going on a three day trip Tuesday through Thursday (June 7-9)!  I haven’t gone anywhere in a long time.  We’re going to Charleston, South Carolina.

Any who.  I wanted to post something.  I’ve been trying to work on a small story to post.  Hopefully I’ll think of a good story idea and post a chapter every once in a while.  And I am going to post some cool pictures (and wedding pics!) soon. 🙂  I just haven’t had time.

Much love, and have a blessed week!  (I’ll be writing soon, promise)
