Before I'm 30 progress report

While ago I posted a list of 15 things I want to do before I turn 30 - next November. I thought I'd give a little progress report of how I'm doing! :)

1. Lose weight - more specifically; ALL the weight I need to reach my ideal weight. This one isn't going so well... I need to gain (and pray for) some willpower!!!!
2. Go on a missions trip - Complete!!! Haiti was a wonderful experience. Looking forward to where God takes our group next!
3. Go on a cruise - Next February!!! A group of 8 of us are going on the K-Love Cruise to the Bahamas
4. Take care of my debt - Slowly but surely. My car was paid off last month, so now it's time to start crackin on some other things.
5. Swim with dolphins - Read #3... This is my shore excursion of choice! I can't wait!
6. Go to Boston - Details not forthcoming, but this will be happening this year! :)
7. See the Red Sox play at Fenway. - Read #6 :)
8. Meet the currently faceless man of my dreams. - Well... God hasn't brought him my way yet. Keep praying
9. Learn to play the piano. - I still would like to... need to find someone to give lessons!
10. Grow in my relationship with God. - I'm working on it daily.
11. Improve the relationship with my parents. - It's gotten a tad better. yay for that
12. Become a better communicator. - Well...
13. Stop sweating the petty stuff. - Needing constant prayer about this.
14. Broaden my culture horizons - Haiti definitely did this!!! I'm trying to get better about finding things locally as well.
15. Read the entire Bible. - I started -- still in Genesis, but starting is half the battle!

Father's Day

I'm a little behind again. It's so hard to get back on the horse!!!

I spent my Father's day here:

Bobbi was in town for a wedding and spared an hour to have lunch with us. :) I love this girl, she's such a riot. Non-stop laughs!!!

I did call my two lovely daddies and wish them a Happy Day. I am so blessed to have two dads that love me. My life is ever better and I'm a stronger person because of both of them. Circumstances whether good or bad with both have been a part of my growing journey. I definitely love them for it.

Not Me! Monday

Not Me! Monday was created by MckMama. Check her blog to get started!

In the last week I did NOT see two amazing concerts and did NOT meet Mark Schultz! I also did NOT go to my first baseball game of the season... yeah, it's JUNE!

I did NOT spend another weekend cleaning house.

I did NOT lost a follower and I'm NOT a little sad about it. :)

I have NOT been reading the Bible every night for the last week... it's great! :)

Today, I did NOT call in sick due to ANOTHER eye infection. I am NOT once again taking steroid drops. Gotta love it!!

What have you NOT done this week?

Where is this girl?? The baseball girl who spends Saturdays and Sundays watching the game. The one who heads out to the K every chance she gets? Sure she still gets excited about scores, but it's just not the same...

Well... she's coming out tomorrow, folks!!!! Look out!!!! :)

Titus 2 Tuesday

What have you learned from a woman this week (or ever)?

It's been awhile... :) Welcome back to me. hehe

This week, I decided to write about my friend, Christi. Where do I begin?

She's wonderful.
She's encouraging.
She puts up with my roller coaster moods when it comes to being healthy. :)

I met Christi when she walked into the wonderful world of Scouting. I don't recall what my first impression of her was... but I think I liked her bubbly personality. Over the last couple of years, Christi and I have managed to maintain our sanity levels by sharing our journeys of faith, singleness, drama, and many more topics!

I love getting the opportunity to share with her everyday, and joke around with her, yet have serious conversations about life. Her corny jokes and serenading me may have something to do with it too!!

Christi - I love ya and I look forward to many more years of sharing the journey! :)

Not Me! Monday

Well, now that there's only a few hours left in Monday... :)

Not Me! Monday was created by MckMama. Check her blog to get started!

In the last week I did NOT catch up on cleaning the house, and I did NOT stay home from a birthday party so I could clean. My weekend did NOT include taking kids to an exhibit and we did NOT have a good time!

I have NOT been annoyed by summertime television.

I have also NOT been planning a super secret vaca, that will NOT include drama. :)

Tonight, I will NOT begin reading the entire Bible in a year.

What have you NOT done this week?

Narnia Exhibit

Yesterday some adults from church took some kids to the Narnia exhibit at Union Station. The exhibit was very cool, very well done. Unfortunately they generally don't let you take pictures inside, so we had to settle for a group shot outside. When we walked in (through doors that looked like a wardrobe), it was "snowing". They had interactive facts about the movies and where they were filmed. They had the White Witches throne, which you could sit on... and it was cold!!! They also had frozen water fall that you could touch. They had so much more, but it was awesome how interactive it was so it kept he kid's interest.

After the exhibit we took the kids to Crayola Cafe, which is always a good time.

Picture(s) of the week...or month

It's been crazy here. I haven't felt well, which in turn causes me to be in a funk. I've been praying. A lot. I've been reading God's word, seeking His will and purpose. I really hope to begin my regular blogging schedule next week. Here are a couple pictures to catch you up on the last month. :)

I cried as my brother, Ky, graduated from high school

I hung out with people I went to Haiti with... what a blast!

Sung "Proud to Be An American" at a concert at Ft. Leavenworth...cried.

Went to St. Louis for Memorial Weekend... refrained from crying.
