Rain rain go away...

       Wet. That is the word for the day week. It has been raining constantly since Friday. Now, I usually enjoy rain...usually. I like the rain when it's a soft, steady drizzle, and provides a good backdrop for reading. However, I do not like:

A.) Large bolts of lightning
B.) Scary thunder
C.) Hail
D.) Tornado warnings
E.) All of the above

        The answer is E of course. So, obviously, all of those things occurred this past week. Saturday evening was spent in the basement with the radio on due to a tornado warning. Since we live in Missouri, we have had more than our fair share of tornadoes. Thankfully, we have never had to experience one personally. However, a few years back, there was one that hit a few miles from us. Can you say 'close call'? Today I still have yet to see the sun. Which, in turn, is making me quite gloomy. I'm a summer kind of girl, and this rain stuff is not for me. I prefer 95 and sunny, not 55 and rainy. But I guess I'll just have to pull myself up by the straps of my rain boots until summer comes. Have a marvelous Monday, and stay DRY.

Plays, parties, and popcorn.

          Oh my what a week it's been! Let's start with a re-cap.

Monday: boring. :)

Tuesday: super stressful day at co-op followed up by an equally stressful dinner with grandma.

Wednesday: a hilarious day in the office, including 'shoe-wetting' and a frog costume.

Thursday: a crazy night with some crazy friends. Ultimate and can smashing was included

Today: started out with Everybody Loves Raymond, and ended in the basement due to tornado warnings.

It was a crazy fun week, but I am ready to just chill. However, this weekend is Easter, so 'chilling', isn't on the agenda. Sunday morning will be church, a fantastic sermon by Andy no doubt, and then lunch at my aunt and uncles. It's sure to be a day filled with family and food! Have a happy Easter, and be blessed!

Weekend DIY

    I have this small spray paint. No, I don't sniff the stuff (it gives me a wicked headache). But I do love to get creative. This weekend I decided to tackle a piece of drywall I had sitting in my room. We had painted these pieces at co-op a couple of weeks ago. Mine was pretty much a light blue background with multi-colored splotches all over. Not exactly a Picasso. It didn't match the color scheme of my room and I just wasn't feeling it. So, I grabbed a can of spray paint from the John-Deer room and set to work. I chose a dark (or so I thought) red...oops. This is like tomato red. Not what I was going for. I only got the first coat of red in before I had to leave for a church event. But, I knew when I got home, that even with only one coat, I didn't like the color. So my next move will be finding a color that doesn't remind me of Elmo. Stay tuned for pictures later! :)

Hello, hello! I haven't updated in a's been a busy week! Here are a few highlights from my week.

-I mowed the yard for the first time this year on Tuesday after a great day at co-op.
-Wednesday was an incredible night with rbcstudents!
-Thursday Josh and I went to McAlisters...and ran into my bestie Ash.
-My co-op class tore up the bowling lanes last night, and then hit up Orange Leaf.
-Today I laid out on the deck and read The Hunger Games.

So it was quite a week.  I have, however, been in a deep depression over not having a camera. I would buy a new job=no cash. So that's the first order of business this week. FIND A JOB. Wish me luck. :)

        Ahhh. This weekend has been beyond words. DNOW 2011 was refreshing beyond belief. We saw
 tears, laughter, freedom, and discomfort. There were tears when people realized just how big our God is. There was laughter when stories were told, and too much sugar was eaten. There was freedom to worship the Lord. And there was discomfort when we realized that we are so undeserving of the mercy our Savior has shown us. Sam Bhatt brought a new perspective on how God loves us. Nate and Zach introduced us to a form of worship in which no one was worried about what everyone else was doing. It was them and God. Small group sessions allowed us to bond as a group and share what God was doing within us.

This weekend WAS NOT...

-A relaxing, comfortable weekend.

This weekend WAS...

-A time to re-connect with God, and close friends.

          My God changed lives. What is your God doing?
