The Lake

Garrett and myself joined the high school group at Broadway for a lake day as part of their missions trip to Boise. We had a great time! It was such a beautiful day! Garrett took me on the jet ski a couple times and almost threw my off! It was a lot of fun, though. :) I also went on a few boat rides and just laid on the dock trying to get a tan. :) Garrett went wake boarding which he hasn't done for a LONG time. He hasn't done it since I have been friends with it has
been awhile. Right before he went he told me I probably will only go once and won't go outside the wake. Well, as you can tell by the picture that didn't happen! He actually did some jumps and landed them! I was very proud. :) It was a great day with the group and I am sure they needed the break from all the hard work they had done.

These are some pics from Matthew's 17th birthday. We went out to lunch at The Pantry and then went bowling. We all had a lot of fun together. The first game I bowled a 106 and the second game....42! What happened?!? I have no idea. I just got tired I guess. haha. Anyways, Matt said he had a great day and I am glad for that.

that planning bridal showers were not stressful! I am so stressed out about Kate's bridal shower tomorrow. I still need to come up with a few games and get stuff to make a strawberry shortcake. Hardly anyone has let me know if they will be atteding or not, so I don't have any idea of how many people to plan for. It could be between 10 and 40! I am also stressed because it is supposed to rain tomorrow and the location is outside at Ann Morrison park. Also, the covered picnic area I wanted it at is reserved until 4 and after that it is first come first serve. I tried to reserve it this week, but they told me it was too late. Ahhh!!! I just pray it all comes together and that God will provide the location and the people! I just want Kate to have a great bridal shower. Well, all I can say is please pray for a little miracle with this one...I am not a party planner!

This is Life

I haven't written for some time now! I was on a role for awhile! Well, a couple of things have happened since I have written last. First of all, Garrett and I house/dog sat for the Ivey's for 9 days! It was a hard 9 days....let's just say Garrett and me won't be getting a dog for awhile...if ever! haha.
We recieved our financial aid reward letter. We both recieved more than we needed for tuition, so that was a HUGE blessing! God just continues to bless us again and again!
On Saturday there was a church garage sale and Garrett and me had a "booth." Garrett's parents gave some things to us to sale and my mom gave us a couple things. It was so nice of them! We made way more than I expected we would! Like I said...God is blessing us!
I have been feeling very stressed lately. There are so many changes coming up and so many things that I have to prepare for! If you know me you know that I get stressed pretty easily. I am just trying to keep perspective and give everything fully to God.
I really need to learn to let go! I want to break free from everything that holds me back and pulls me down.
Anyways, I think that we are going to have a girl's night tonight. All the guys are having a Halo night, so us girls are getting together. I am not sure what we are doing yet, but it will be fun! Well, I better go pick up the apartment before tonight.
