grilling out

Lovely weekend

I think the word lovely perfectly describes my weekend.

Highlights of the weekend:

  • Friday: Going to Kennywood with Jimmy. It was Hannah’s school picnic day and since I was still her guardian for the week, I got to go! I had a blast and actually rode a new roller coaster. Best of all? I got to have some delicious watermelon and stayed till the park closed.
  • Saturday: My parents came home from their anniversary trip! I also washed my truck and went out to dinner with my family + Hannah’s friend.
  • Sunday: Going to church and hearing some awesome sermons, enjoying lunch made on the grill, and planting my garden.

I don’t have a lot of pictures from Sunday… just one of Jimmy’s little brother 🙂*

I had such a nice weekend! I feel so blessed, as per usual. This week I am teaching four Spinning classes and my mom is having foot surgery on Thursday so I’ll be taking care of her and the house.


Bible verse of the day:

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.” Isaiah 30:15

Recent Bible verse I’ve been loving:


Alrighty, I’m off to church in a bit! Today’s plans also include mowing the lawn, studying for finals, maybe grilling outside (!), and spending time with loved ones.
