Life lately

1.) I lost two more pounds!

2.) I have been sewing like crazy and l love it! I am hoping to start making a little bit of side money doing it! I take classes at The Shops Above Memory Lane. We stay up late, but it's worth it!
Recent Projects:
 Blanket made out of Minky super soft and personalized...guess how much they sell for at the store...$80.00!
Bird pillow, not finished
 Owl Pillow
 Personalized onesie
More personalized-for sisters!

3.) I ran my first 10K, actually my first race ever today! It was so much fun! I am for sure feeling it, but it was worth it. My husband, Britt, Brent, Alisha, Cody, all of Alisha's family, Claire and Jeremy soon to be Davis, and I am sure many more all ran it as well! It was great to have so many people!

4.) I have been reading through Genesis and doing a devotional on my phone. 21 days to form or break a habit! I'm on my way with my quiet times and running!

5.) I am loving talking to my nephew. He loves to call me now. "Meme call Ashwey" "Ashwey when you come see me? I miss you Ashwey" "Wanna come to my house Ashwey? Can you take me to the playground?" "Why you at home? Come over!"

Haha! I love it! His personality is really starting to shine!

On Monday night I had the opportunity, with our praise band at church, to record at a 2.1 million dollar studio for free. A girl at our church, Kim, is getting a degree from the Art Instutition off of Louis Henna in Round Rock! She uses us for her projects! It is a lot of fun. I can't wait to hear how "Our God" sounds after all the finishing touches.

Here are some pictures:

7 pounds

Surprise, surprise...
I am behind on blogging once again.

I weighed in Tuesday. I have lost 7 pounds! I celebrated...a little to much!
I totally blew it this week! Starting with a big teacher breakfast on Tuesday morning, Mardis Gras snack theme at faculty meeting on Wednesday, St. Patrick's Day luncheon on Thursday, and Alisha's b'day lunch today!

I am very disappointed in myself! I will weigh again on Tuesday, we will see what the damage is!

Sad Goodbyes

Sunday, February 27th, we said goodbye to Oak Shade Baptist Church.

I cried like I was at a funeral, once it hit me I couldn't stop. Hug after hug, comment after comment just caused the tears to keep on coming. I didn't think that would happen. I was confident I'd be strong for my parents, etc.
I realized 11 years in one place is not easy to say goodbye to, no matter how hard it has been for my family for the last couple of years.
-met my husband in Sunday School the first week we moved there
-worked as a Sunday School teacher, a summer intern, cleaned the church as a part time job, VBS every summer, camp after camp
-attend several women studies throughout college
-was apart of the best college and career class, that has now been dead for 5 or more years :(

The list could go on. You understand what it is like to say goodbye to people you love...don't you?

Closing one chapter, opening the next.

Goodbye OSBC...
