Weekending

Hey ya'll and happy Monday! (if there's such a thing as happy Monday) Today is pretty happy because it's Hubby's birthday today! He's the big 31 but don't tell him I told you. He'll be working this evening but we'll be celebrating all week with family dinners, presents and cupcakes of course! (Ya'll I really like exclamation points and I apologize) Happy Birthday Babe!


This weekend was fabulous despite the fact that I had to go to driving school on Saturday. I went to bed early Friday night after binging some Walking Dead in anticipation of the long day of drivers ed. I stopped by Starbucks of course and fueled up and the guy gave me my caramel macchiato for free! He said he felt bad that my Saturday would be spent in an all day class so he said it was on the house. I love good people! It gets better - I get to class and the instructor tells us she's so sorry but we have to cram everything and if we're ok with skipping lunch, we can leave at 1:00pm (it was already 9am) Heck yes lady! She unfortunately had some family issues to deal with but lucky for us our Saturday wasn't shot. Now that the class it completed, that pesky little speeding ticket will be off my record for good. Done and done. 

Sunday we went to church and that is an entire blog post in itself. We've been searching for a church family for over a year and just haven't felt deeply connected to one. We decided to try the church I grew up in where I am still a member two weeks ago and I completely fell in love just like I had always been before. I hadn't seen some of those folks since high school and I cried with overwhelming joy three times during the service. I knew! I know we had found it and it is so silly because the church was always just right there. I just wan't sure if hubby wanted to go that way, etc. etc. I count down the days until Sunday and I can't wait to raise Andi in the same church that did so much to shape me as a pre-teen, teen and young adult. I mean the people are so friendly, find you on facebook immediately, invite you to everything, make you feel at home and welcome and this is what I was looking for. Man the holy spirit in ya feels good! 




Linking up today with Biana & Meghan for Weekending

  6. It is such a great feeling to find a church that feels like home. After we moved I bounced back and forth between three churches for about a year before trying a new one and it was the perfect fit. We've been there for 10 months now and I look forward to going every week!

  12. Finding a church home is huge! We have been battling because we love our church but the youth program for teens is just not quite reaching the kids. It's kind of a space issue but it's one of those things that really is tough.
