As soon as we pulled into the parking lot for the Fish Fest (on Sunday) Matt immediately starts sneezing. And so it begins. The verizon amphitheatre was apparently built in pollenville. So we get there, walk to our seats and sit down to enjoy the concert, but it wasn't enjoyable AT ALL. Matt's eyes are watering, he's sneezing up a storm, and his nose is dripping. I thought to my selfish self "oh no, please don't let him start", he's known to get bad allergy attacks, so I start praying really fast: "Pleaaase God bring healing, please don't let him have an allergy attack, please give me half (or more since men are babies, lol) of what he's feeling, then at least I won't feel bad if we have to go home, because i'll know what he's feeling". Weird prayer? Well then I, the one who never has gotten allergies, start sneezing and my nose starts running. It was almost funny. but not. We're trying to stay as long as possible to try and get some of our money's worth, all the while sneezing on each other. To top it off it was hotter than heck out there, 90 something degrees. Matt was completely miserable, so after a few bands we headed home. =( We did make it thru Sixpence, Superchicks, and most of Rebecca St. James.

Rebecca St. James (Melissa, for some reason she was reminding me of you the whole time-I think you resemble her)

Rebecca's 2 brothers that sang with her.
All night and even yesterday we were still suffering! It was crazy! Now I know what Matt and all you allergy sufferers go thru all the time!

We got news yesterday that our friend D's 11 yr old son passed away yesterday. He was riding his bike when a car hit him. D goes to our young adults church, we will see him tonight. As you can imagine he is taking it very very hard. Keep him in your prayers for God's comfort and strength.

I did it!

I changed the look of my blog! I love the look of white blogs, they look so fresh and easy on the eyes. I think i'm in love......

Shout to the Lord!

Last week on American Idol it was their Idols Give Back show. At the end of the show the idols sang Shout to the Lord! THEN they sang it again the next day as the opening song. I couldn't believe it! I loved it!! They sang it SOOO pretty, it was truly anointed. I could just picture God and the angels rejoicing! I just had to add it to my blog so I could listen to it anytime I want.

Generous Wife Daily Tip

Respect your husband's needs and wishes. We all know what our husbands like and and dislike (if you really don't know something, ask). If loud music bothers him first thing in the morning, play something softer (or nothing at all). If he likes a particular brand of toothpaste, buy that brand. Let him know that what he likes and wants matters to you.
... give preference to one another in honor. Romans 12:10

Bowling for Jesus!

lol, I love saying that, I don't know why. But our young adults group (Ignite) just started something called Connect. It's basically where we go on outings once a month, and invite someone who recently started coming to church or just got saved. It's a place where we can get to know new converts outside of the church atmosphere and more on a one-on-one basis. These past few months we have been going bowling. It's so fun even tho I pretty much suck at it. But it's fun getting to know everyone!

That's my big ole' bootie!

Girls just wanna have fun!

So Saturday was my friend's bridal shower. She's getting married this Sunday!! Matt & I are in thieir wedding too! =) I don't have any pics of the actual shower because I didn't have my camera with me but I do have pics of the goodies that I made for the party. I made sure to take pics of them beforehand.

I got this cookie idea from a girl on a cooking message board, but I just changed all the colors and designs.
I love how they came out!

Ouch! lol

I love these lil favors, because they're so easy to make! I just change each design according to
the theme of each party. These have lil bra's on them.

Chocolate covered pretzels w/ pink sprinkles.

Daily Tip

Give your husband a hug and kiss for "no reason" (though a serious or silly reason works well too).
I will give you my love. Song of Songs 7:12

generous wife tip for the day

from the generous wife emails:
Pray that your husband would be protected against temptation. Pray against the blatant and subtle things that would pull him off balance in his walk with the Lord (you might also spend a moment or two in prayer for those women who have unbelieving husbands, where the battle is a bit tougher in this area).
No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13

Yay, it's Friday and the weekend is here! I feel like I am at the starting line of a race and i'm about to take off! I have a busy busy weekend ahead of me! Tonight we have our young adults church to attend (Ignite) and we usually don't get home til about 11ish. Then tomorrow I have a baby shower for my good friend at 1:30, which I'm really excited about because I haven't seen this friend in awhile. Then at 4:30 I am going to a bridal shower for my friend Kristina. This is the wedding that Matt & I are in. I'm taking a few desserts too so I have to make sure I have that all ready tonight! Oy! I already bought everything I need to make everything, plus I dipped the pretzels last night so that's done! Sunday morning we have church, THEN it's our really good friends Daniel & Christina's son's 1st birthday! I also have a hair appointment at 3:30, my hair is in need of some major lovin'. It's pathetic.
Thank God for good weather tho! It's supposed to be around 84 on Saturday and 87 on Sunday! I wish I could go to the beach and layout, but unless I plan on going at 6am tomorrow morning there just isn't really time for that!

Please vote..

on my poll to the right.

"Everything Changed"

So this post is about my friend Luwann. She goes to my church and sings on the worship team, and has been saved for 11 years now. I've known her for years. She recently had a documentary about her life done by a guy named Bobby Marquez. Knowing Luwann now I can't even BELIEVE the struggles that she went thru, she seems so polished and well put together and above all has an amazing relationship with God, her mom and her sister. She is an awesome friend and prayer partner, with a big heart. Please take a look at the trailers and see for yourself the miracle of how God can take a good for nothing drug addicted person off the streets and turn them into a beautiful person doing what the Creator has called her to do.
Note: These are trailers for the upcoming documentary called "Everything Changed".


Another baby shower...

Another post of long overdue pictures! This was a baby shower for my sister's LAST baby! My sister had a super hard year so my mom, her bff & I decided to have her a lil something. Since she already had everything she needed from her previous baby, we did a small Diapees & Wipees Shower for her. Instead of any type of gifts we just asked (in a very cute poem) for either diapers or wipees for the new baby. (it was mostly family and close friends so they didn't mind that) The invitation had a picture of a pregnant lady on it and it said "This girl needs a party!"
Banner that I made with the baby's name. (after my dad) It's actually Nicholas but I didn't feel like doing the whole name! lol shhh.

Dessert table..

Strawberries & brownies that our friend made. They were delish!

kinda lopsided diaper cake that I made.


Game prizes (each filled with 1 gift card to various places)
Trying to get the full effect of how pretty it looked with the lights.

Me and my sister's bff. It was thee hottest day in August hence my red face.

Just to show you how long ago that shower was, this is baby Nicholas on Easter! =)
