Weekly Weekend Update

This was a great weekend filled with football and Friends:)

Friday night, after work, I picked up my best friend/college roommate Brittany and we drove to Greensboro for the night. I went and had dinner with a friend of mine. We stayed at Brittany's sisters house for the night who lives in Highpoint, NC.

Saturday morning we woke up bright and early and got dressed in our Carolina Blue and headed for Chapel Hill. Our third roommate Katie lives there now and is in Pharmacy school at UNC-Chapel Hill. We got the great news last weekend that her and her boyfriend of almost 6 years are engaged so we had to come spend some time with her and celebrate:) So excited to be a part of the wedding, these are 2 people that love each other so much and have been through a lot together and i am just so happy they are finally getting married!!

Saturday was absolutely FREEZING!!!! we bundled up as much as possible and headed for the Carolina/State game. I can honestly say i have never been that miserably cold in my entire life and i hope that i never am again....

We had a great time though, when the 3 of us get together it is so much fun...we laugh a lot:)

Saturday night we were all so exhausted from being out in the cold for so long that we just stayed in ordered pizza and laid around in our pj's and watched Alvin and the Chipmunks, i know... i know...but it was actually pretty cute:) haha

Sunday we woke up, spent some time with Katie while watching another cheesy movie, "The Perfect Man" and then Brittany and I headed back to Charlotte. We had a great time talking and catching up in the car. I really am blessed with some of the sweetest friends. The only regret I have from this day is I missed church which i hate to do because it keeps me going through the week and i am already struggling...

I had some laundry, cleaning and errands to do when i got back so i got that done and then headed to a friends to watch the new episode of 24. I have never been into this show in the past but i think that after watching last night...I will be hooked for the season.

Really was nice to get out of Charlotte and spend time with 2 of my favorite people:) I must say, it was a great weekend!!

Can't believe this week is thanksgiving...Wow, this year has flown by!! Anyways thats all for now...

Miss Independent

First of all thank you Mrs. Davis and Faith for your sweet messages. They really helped:)

Yesterday was just another one of those days where all i wanted to do was be perfect and God just reminded me once again how I am not and how important it is to remain humble before him at all times. Sometimes i get so caught up in my life and what i have going on that i forget to stop and take time for him...I try to Miss Independent, Miss "I dont need you"...

When i finally stopped fighting it yesterday is when i felt better, which by the way was not till 8 o'clock last night. Some days are just harder then others for me but i know that no matter what he is always there for me, waiting for me to let him be in control...

That's all for now. just wanted to share that tidbit.

Weekly Weekend Update

So I decided I would start doing a weekend Recap on Monday of each week. Well Monday was CRAZY at work so i did not get to it so i am doing it on Tuesday:)
It was a nice weekend. Very relaxing. And Peaceful....

FRIDAY: Caroline and I get to leave work at 4:30 instead of 5:30 because of "brown bag Friday" which basically means we eat lunch at the office instead of taking our hour break so we get to leave an hour early. which is nice.
One of my oldest friends, Kristin Collins(now Kristin Deal), invited me to go out for her sisters 22nd birthday, who is also pretty much my sister:) We all met up at Jessica's house and hung out and then everyone headed downtown but i decided to just head home because Saturday was a big day...
Kristin, Jessica and I on her Birthday!!!!!!!!

Saturday: I just started working for this promotional company called Fusion Gateway,, so i could make some extra money on the weekends. this weekend was my first event...
The events purpose was to allow little girls to bring in their old Barbies which would be recycled to make new Barbies. For every Barbie that was donated, Mattel is going to donate a new Barbie to the Children's Hospital Organization. It was so much fun to make all of these little girls days....and the tiara wasnt so bad either;)

Raegan and I. We both worked the event. she was so sweet...such a blessing.
The cutest little cheerleader, she was so shy...
Got to hold this precious 2 week old baby...i just wanted to eat her up....
Me and the manager at Walmart, everyone wanted a picture..haha.

so stinkin cute.
This ended up being such a blessing to me. I have been going through a lot lately and it was just nice to have a FUN day and make others happy:)
Saturday night my friend Katie came over for a slumber party(yes i said it) and we went to dinner and then layed on the couch and watched the Fabulous life of Kimora, i know i know....but it was so nice to do nothing!
Sunday: MY FAVORITE DAY OF THE WEEK!! Katie and I woke up and went and got breakfast at Brueggers, YUMMO, and then came back and got ready for church. I have been visiting a new church for about a month now and i LOVE it. Its called Forest Hill Church in Charlotte, NC. I have not felt so welcome in a church since I was young. The pastor, David Chadwick is just great and i can really relate to his messages. The worship is awesome too.
Now i just want to find a group of girls to get connected with. I really need an accountablility/bibly study group so if anyone knows one that is looking for members please let me know:)
the rest of Sunday was spent doing laundry. running errands. and relaxing.
so over all, not to bad of a weekend.

Katie and I have been friends since we were in preschool, which is over 20 years now. holy moly that's a long time. She is one of the sweetest, most selfless, funniest women i have ever met and I just wanted to share some pictures of our adventures at the Bobcats game the other night. My boss gave me 4 of his AMAZING season tickets, 3rd row food, was so much fun. We took 2 of the girls Katie works with at Carmen and Carmen, Sam and Katie, and we had a blast:)
