Seattle here I come, for a week.

Alright, I know I'm behind, and let's be honest I'm just going to get more behind this next week because I'll be gone for over a week.
It will be ok. I have a great memory. (aka: facebook status updates)
So for now, so long my friends to Seattle I go...

I'm Back!!!

So I seriously don't know what my issue is with keeping a blog. I just can't get it through my head this is what I am doing. Ha! Maybe by the end of the year I'll have it down.

Anyways, not much to update you all on, but the fact that the Flu and a nasty Cold is going around NorCal. And yes, I caught the flu and BAD, 3 days in bed. And other then that, there was work.

The exciting news about my internship is I just placed my order for my prayer cards! :) so that is pretty exciting just hope they turn out awesome.

Getting more and more excited about camp, but strangely enough getting more nervous. The devils is at work. And just at the right time I was able to read someone else's page on there adventure, but they are going all the way to Nigera....that is is West Africa. WOW!!! Anyways she talked about her freaking out about financial support and going out of the country for so long. And when she does freak out she realizes, she is not going alone and that God will indeed provided the needs for her whole trip. Boom!!! Such a God thing she posted that when I needed it the most.

January, here and gone.

February, already? Wow! It is crazy to think I'll be headed to Seattle in just a few weeks to go to my first Christian Camp Conference....so good. And I'm so excited to go and meet many other people passionate about camping ministry. God bless 'em!

So let me think, what has been going on since I last posted?! oh right, WORK! Ha. What's new right? I continue to think how blessed I am to even have a good paying, with quality hours job.

Camp seems to be getting closer and closer, maybe because it is :) And maybe because I'm getting things I need to do before it all starts. AH! Sorry, that was just me getting a little more excited. Ha! This is going to be awesome!!

I also have a group page with more updates and more specific details on facebook. Not going to put personal info on my blog, at least the group is somewhat protected on facebook, at least I think....ha. Anyways, if you are not a part of it yet, please message me on there and I will gladly add you.

I'm becoming more and more grateful for prayer support and how extremely blessed I truly am by all those who are praying for me now and will continue as I move to Washington. So, thank YOU!

Praises:

Almost Forgot.

So it has been a week since I last posted. Opps! My bad. Seriously there has been no big event to stop me from going on, just forgot. Anyways, the past week has been long and full of work. Yet that much closer to WA! :) can I get a whoop, whoop?! I'm really starting to enjoy my new laptop and looks like I will be keeping it seeing as tomorrow is the last day to return it. Ha!

You know those work days that seem to drag on FOREVER, that seems to be happening to me a lot more often lately. Maybe because A.) we are stuck inside because of the rain B.)I'm just getting beyond excited about moving C.) it is work! LOL. But still very thankful to have a job up until I move.

So I just recently put up some of my crocheted items on facebook to try and raise extra support for my internship, no such luck. Ha! It's all good, I'm sure they will all find a home eventually...

I love me some KU Jayhawk men's basketball :) especially when they get a 'W' Feels so good. March Madness is coming so quickly. YES, PLEASE!

I was also able to go to a fundraiser when Ryan and Sara Hall were in town for their foundation. For those of you who don't know Ryan Hall just made the men's marathon team for the Olympics, and his wife Sara will soon be trying to make the Olympics also. Awesome seeing as I grew up with Sara at church my whole life.

Sadly, to all my local peeps the 49ers lost in overtime and were not able to advance to the Super Bowl. Let's be honest though, I was a lot more sad when Tim Tebow and the Broncos did not make it the week before. Bummer deal.

Oh....The Bachelor. I'm predicting another AWFUL season, although the Bachelor is a local boy he is not doing his selection very well....Word to the Wise... DON'T PICK COURTNEY!!!!!! just saying...

More exciting news. My ALL TIME FAVORITE team, the San Francisco Giants will be playing the Seattle Mariners while I am in WA. YES, YES, YES!!!! Looking forward to that for sure.

Thankful/Praises:

Day Off and the rain is here.

So it is great to be making money again, but I always appreciate a day off during the week. The last few days have been just fine, nothing to crazy, but nothing awful either. I'll take it. On Tuesday I worked a half day, and what should be roughly a 20min drive home from work ended up being about an hour long drive. The 101 was backed up like crazy (bad accident) and I also had to pick up my mom from the store. Aww....the life of a 2 car family with 3 drivers, but we make it work and very blessed that we have 2 cars.
Wednesday was a 9-5 day, long but ended up being pretty fun after I built a fort for the kids I nanny for. They loved it. Good times for sure.
Thursday, the rain is finally here!! I love it. Nothing like the Great North West is getting right now, but we got our own storm going on here. Today was one of those days where you feel so fat at the end of the day, ate out lots! But enjoyed spending much needed time with friends :) And yes, also went to the Mall. (aka: Forever 21) Love it!
Back to work tomorrow. Mommy and Me day at gymnastics :) (aka: Nanny and me)

1/17/12: having a car
1/18/12: fun imaginations
1/19/12: eating out :)

Sick Day, Holiday, and Pinterest

So late Saturday night I woke up feeling terrible. Strange, but laid there praying I would feel better in the morning, I ended up sleeping in and missing church that morning and yes I felt much better. Thank goodness for modern technology though. I was able to listen to a sermon on-line from my church. And although I wasn't able to spend time with my church family, I was able to hear a solid sermon, preached from the Word of God. Can I get an 'Amen'?! :) This will probably be one of the hardest things to leave once I move to WA. My church family, the place where I love to go to to dive into God's Word, with a pastor I consider like a brother (and yes, sometimes he acts like a Father, ha!) I know it will always be a place I can come back to with their doors wide open, and yes, I know God has a special church family in WA for me, but wow, sad days to come.

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day aka: Day Off! A nice relaxing day to watch LOTS of sports, catch up on crocheting and other such things. And yes SLEEPING IN!!!

Pinterest, if you don't have one get one! Greatest place for crafts, recipes, and so much more. I've been testing out a few things and I'm lovin' it!

1/15/12 (praise) : technology
1/16/12 (praise) : sleeping in
