Week in Review Returns!

I feel like I've been in hibernation mode ever since we returned from Arizona in January. That's why I haven't been doing "Week in Review" posts. Life just hasn't been exciting. I thought I'd start it up again since it's spring (or so the calendar tells me. I have yet to see any proof).

Sunday 3/20 - After church, I headed to Grinders for lunch with Luke and JC. We enjoyed the sunshine on the drive. And then Luke and I came home and spent the rest of the afternoon and evening napping, watching basketball, and just being together. Typical Sunday!

Monday 3/21 - After grocery shopping and dinner, we had our second week of connect group at our house. I am absolutely loving this group! The actual Bible study is great. We have some really smart people in our group who ask great questions and have great ideas. It's been such a blessing to be a part of this! And it's always fun to talk and hang out afterward too. I think this group is going to be a highlight of my weeks :-)

Tuesday 3/22 - This day was so boring it barely deserves to be written about. I did things like clean, watch Desperate Housewives, and paint my nails for the first time in months. Exciting, I know.
Essie - Mochacino...I kinda like it :-)

Wednesday 3/23 - Wednesday was pretty much exactly the same as Tuesday. I did try a new recipe, though (saucy Mexican chicken), and I thought it turned out to be pretty good.

Thursday 3/24 - This was a fun day! I had watched my friend Kim's dog Max a few weeks ago. She was out of town again this week, and her old neighbor was watching him. Well the neighbor had gotten a pretty bad cold, and wasn't up to watching him for the rest of the week. So we got to pick him up and watch him. He was so cute and such a blessing for a few days! Luke and I spent the evening chilling out with him, and watching basketball, The Office, Parks and Recreation, and 30 Rock. Thursday is TV night around here :-)

Friday 3/25 - We had a late party for the Ohio State basketball game on Friday night. It didn't begin until 10:00 PM! It was fun to hang out with some friends and watch the game, even though Ohio State lost. Since then, my bracket has died a slow and painful death.

Saturday 3/26 - I had a meeting at the church on Saturday morning for the library committee. It was pretty exciting, because the new wing of the church will be done in a month, and the library will be ready soon after that! We all took a box of books home from the meeting to start adding them into the electronic system. We're finally moving into a computer system as opposed to a card system :-) Anyway, after that I went out shopping with my mom. It was a fun afternoon out with her. And soon after that, I went out to see the movie Sucker Punch with my friend Kristin. The visuals, music, and fight scenes in the movie were amazing. But the story and ending were disappointing in my opinion, so I don't know if I'd recommend it or not. Anyway, Saturday was a busy day, and a lot of fun!
Milestones this week: Made a big, life-changing decision this week! I will explain in due time.

Movies I watched this week: Sucker Punch (C+)

Books I'm reading this week: The Bible - I Chronicles, finished Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery (and loved it even more the third time!) and began Here Burns my Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs.

Songs I'm loving this week: Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars, and anything country!

Things I'm looking forward to next week: connect group, probably seeing my sister next weekend, and hopefully buying a mountain bike along with Luke and JC! We are going to have so much fun this spring/summer :-)


  1. Max is adorable!! And I love that nail color!!!

  2. Max is super cute! It sounds like out of your obedience you're being blessed. Sometimes it's hard to do small groups in your home because it can be an inconvenience or just plain overwhelming, but you've seemed excited from the beginning. Good for you girl!

  3. Max is presh! I think IM gonna have to go see sucker punch :(

  4. Your Sundays sound a lot like ours!:)

    And my bracket also died painfully. Oh well.

  5. Awe, Max sounds so cute!! :)

    I mentioned you on my blog today!

  6. Your group sounds like it's going really well! I'm looking forward to hearing about your life-changing decision when you're ready to talk about it. :-)


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! I read and appreciate each and every one. Blessings to you!
