It's been awhile

I haven't updated in awhile...I've been so busy! A lot has happened and my life is crazy it seems like. For those that are keeping up, here are a few updates...

  • school is going great...hopefully I'll be finished in November!
  • my trip to Guatemala is quickly approaching! If you don't know about my trip yet, you can read all about it here
  • my Thirty-One business is picking up. I have 2 parties scheduled within two days of each other, so I'll be worn out...but hopefully will get off to a great start for the month of June. If you don't know about Thirty-One, check it out here and here and if you would like to place an order, you can email me at:
  • I've been keeping a friend of mine's three little girls during the week when I'm not working at Chili's and they are super precious. I love them so much and we have been having so much fun going to church, having girl time, and going on fun adventures
  • laundry is overflowing...when is it not? Sorry, that was random, but I just looked over at it and thought that I probably need to tackle that at some point this week
  • Caiti graduated from high school last can read about that in a previous post
  • Raylon graduated from kindergarten last week too. I can't believe she is going to be in the 1st grade and is turning 7 in a few months!
All in all, life is really going great right now :)

Memorial Day

Yesterday was Memorial Day. I meant to do a post yesterday, but didn't have the chance. Nonetheless, here it is :)

Memorial Day is a special day. It's a time set aside to remember those that fought for our chance to have the freedom that we do today. Many lives have been lost throughout the years so that we may live in a country free to do almost anything we choose. Many have friends and family that have served in some branch of military at some point. I'm no different. My dad is the Command Sergeant Major for 2nd Squadron of the 278th regiment. He served in Iraq for 18 months and is currently preparing his soldiers for a second tour. I'm proud of my daddy and all that he has done for our country. His service will never go unnoticed. I'm thankful for those that came before us to fight and defend our country, and I'm thankful for those that continue to do so today.

Caiti's Graduation

My crazy, sweet, fun, beautiful little sister graduated from high school on Thursday night. I can't believe she is going to be going away to college in the fall! She is going to be successful in anything and everything she chooses to do. I just hope she will always stay on the right path and do what she knows in her heart is right. Congratulations, Caiti! I'm super proud of you!

Breaking Ground at Northstar

Last weekend we had a ground breaking and prayer walk at our new property at Northstar. God has provided us with an amazing piece of land and building has started on our new building. With God's help, we should be in it by October! Our building now is beautiful, however, we must have
two services on Sunday to hold everyone. It will be awesome to worship all together again!
