For those of you interested in my other blog site, Manna; I have finally updated it with a new entry! Yay! You can see the latest entry here.

I'm also excited because I get to go back to work on Tuesday! Yippee! I know I seem odd to well, probably everyone for other reasons; but I probably seem especially weird because I'm so excited to get back to work. That's because I so love my job! I am always gone for what feels like such a long time, that I can't wait to get back! So yay! It's gonna be a great week, I think...

Thanks to everyone for their well wishes for a great anniversary.

We've not only had a great anniversary this year, but a fantastic vacation. Hubby said the other day that he's more than ready to return to work next week, which always tells me if a vacation has been sucessful or not (if Husband is relaxed enough to jump back into work). I declare this one an unequivocable success! Yay!

Excitement doesn't even begin to cover the overwhelming happy emotions I'm feeling right now. Good news always makes me giddy; but after such a long time of hard work, prayer, and such obedience and faithfulness, it's thrilling to see God's hand at work. Not just His hand at work, since it's been there all along throughout this process; but to see the end result is especially exciting for me. I can't wait!

Increments of five

Five years is a long time, but not as long as you might think. It feels like a long time ago, because I'm not the same person I was five years ago.

For the few who may not know, five years ago last week, I graduated college. Five years ago this week, I got married. It seems like a lifetime ago. CC and I have been together in some form or fashion, for over ten years. We've essentially grown up together, and grown together during that time.

Looking back, it's good to say we're not the same people we were five years ago, or even ten years ago. The Lord is continually growing us into His image, which is ultimately what I hope to be- a reflection of Him. I hope to be able to say the same again in five more years-- that I'm closer to being who He desires me to be.

Happy anniversary, CC!

We're home... already!

Okay, so while our vacation is still happening, our plans have changed due to us getting sick, which apparently is our tradition when it's our anniversary. (This began when we got married and were sick for our honeymoon. Five years later, it's happening again.)

We're still going to have lots of fun this week though! We'll make it to church tomorrow after all (hopefully, if we're feeling up to it), and we have lots of things around town we're hoping to do this week. Let the fun (and feeling better) begin!

We are officially on vacation today, and our first leg is off to a great start!

How old do I look, exactly?

So at the mall tonight we were making small talk with a salesman, and he asked how my Mothers' Day went. I said okay, and he asked why it was just okay. Realizing his mistake, I kindly informed him that I'm not a mother, so the holiday didn't really affect me. We then entered this time where every long awkward moment came together to create the 'mother' of all long awkward moments before he slipped away in shame, knowing he wasn't making a sale today.

Now, I realize that like everyone else, I am aging and growing up. However, lately I've had the above situation happen to me, it seems, almost everywhere I go. The above situation wouldn't have been a big deal except that I was with Husband and Jennifer (two very cute, young, 20-something adults who do not at all look like older parents). No children were anywhere in sight of this salesman; yet he immediately targeted me as the mom of the group, when in fact I'm younger than both of the people I was with!

I'm beginning to get a complex because this is happening to me so much. How old do I look, exactly, that this keeps occurring?

On to bigger and better things!

Well the weekend at least ended very well, and this week promises to be very exciting! Next week is vacation, and I for one can't wait!

Visiting Funkytown

Lately I've been in a weird mood, especially after last night. It's hard to get out of; but I've been praying my way through it, and reading the Bible for guidance and inspiration. It's always amazed me how God can meet me in whatever place I'm in.
