Shout out to the birthday boy (a day late):

Thanks to Dane (and my other wonderful friends) for walking Race for the Cure with Mom and me! And just for being all around great! Hope your birthday was special and you felt real loved!

Well, it's over... the week from H-E-double hockey sticks is done. I survived. Barely. Just wanted to say that I made it... now I get to start preparing to tell high school kids about Jesus on Monday night. So thankful for a few days to rest this weekend. I'm sleepy. And that's an understatement (to use a word that was on my midterm tonight).

Recently my Saturdays have been consumed by this:
Note the Moe's cup- my life has also been consumed by that place.

Note the change in weather from the previous week by what we're wearing.
Crazy Knoxville weather.

I learned that Logan, Megan, and I are great cooks... even if we struggle getting it all together, it tastes great! We cooked for some of the guys.

We had camo YoungLife club on Monday:
This girl ROCKED her talk.
It was so great, and I am so freaking thankful I get to do ministry along side her.
This girl is spending the night tonight, and I am so stinking excited!

5 things.

The other day Nicole asked me to list 5 good things happening in my life right now. Then today I saw one of those "repost this as your status... list 5 things you're thankful for" things... I'm not much on facebook statuses/stati (?), but I'll list 5 things here. Not that it should be limited to 5, but for sake of time... (I'm about to go interview a kindergarten teacher... seems like I should be the one getting interviewed?)

Anyway, here are 5 things that I am so blessed by:
(I'm going to use the numbering tool just for you Chelcie)
  1. Jesus- My relationship with Him. what He offers me, how He loves me perfectly, how in Him I have hope and joy, how "He holds my world in His hands" so I don't have to live a life of worry but instead I can (try my best to) live a life of faith and trust.
  2. I'm going to steal from Morgan a little bit here. Community. My family, my friends, my small group, my roommates, my young life team, my church, my friends at CAK, all the other leaders in Knoxville.
  3. Even though I complain about school a lot (working on that) because I really don't enjoy it, I am thankful for the ability to be in school, thankful for the preparation God is using it for in me, thankful for my grandparents paying for college so I don't have to worry about that aspect of it.
  4. Health. My mom's in particular right now, but really I'm just thankful for the health of all my family and friends.
  5. I'm going to be less deep with the last one- this beautiful East Tennessee fall weather.

This fall break has consisted of...
-lunch at CAK
-shopping with my mom and Olivia
-hanging out with Jamie and Nicole
-spending time with Dane
-lunch at A.L. Lotts
-being the "mystery reader" in Olivia's classroom
-finally having some quality time with Nicole
-helping Rebekah do her hair
-dinner with BT and Jamie
-CAK homecoming
-sleepover with Logan and Megan
-UT game
-cooking dinner for the guys
-walking with mom, Jamie, & some family in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk

Now I'm just sitting here waiting on my dad to bring me my phone before I go to the library. I handed it to him at the walk and then he left for the lake with it still in his pocket! And I'm telling myself I can't go to the library til I have it (because he's bringing it to my house and I have no way to get in touch with him) so therefore I can't do homework yet... Even though I really should get started!

Anyway, here are some pictures from CAK Homecoming! These girls look like supermodels. They are beautiful.
