A Few Favorites

Hey hey! Just stopping by to share a few favorite things, moments, etc. today!

Lego Kits. These are still such a novelty to me and Sadie so we both have fun putting them together! They feel like a workout for my brain šŸ˜‚ Oh yeah, does anyone recognize Sadie’s dress from my hand-sewing days?!

Current Bible Study. I’m working through a study on women in the Bible and it’s fantastic. It goes from Genesis all the way through the New Testament and discusses what we can learn about God and His character and how we can apply lessons from women of the Bible to our own lives. I know a lot of the stories, but it has been nice to brush up on them all again and go more in-depth.

Hello from…

Before I even left for vacation, Jimmy drove out to my house and gave me a care package for the trip (sorta like I did for him when he was working a few hours away for a week). He included all of my favorite things: sun block, peanut butter, snacks, gum, stickers, and Sharpie markers. He’s the sweetest. I’m glad he doesn’t judge me for loving stickers at age 20.

My mom loves sipping coffee on the deck of the beach house we’re staying at.

I love the deck because I can hear the ocean while I read my Bible.

Hannah looks older than me. Nothing new about that.

I played skee ball in the local arcade and turned in my tickets for stickers. Best. Prize. Ever.

We’ve been saving money by packing lunches each day. Tuna and turkey sandwiches for the win! Yes, my nickname is Stitch.

My dad is in fishing heaven. I spent about 30 minutes with him in the fishing aisle in Kmart. He was so “in the zone” that he didn’t know I took this picture.

Cookies have been baked. Coffee has been thoroughly enjoyed.

Lastly, what kind of journalism student would I be if I didn’t read the local newspaper?

Well, that’s all the pictures I have for now. I can’t wait to take more because I’m going to be going on some fun adventures this week.
