Weddings are so fun. They allow you to dress up and celebrate the love of two people. This summer I will be in my seventh wedding! Thats right--I have been in six already. I was in three last summer alone... two were in the same weekend! haha I am hard core... I know this! I often get asked "have you ever seen the movie '27 Dresses'?" Yes I have... no it isn't about me! haha
My secret thoughts. My utmost desires. My sincerest prayers. They are embedded in the pages of my many journals. I have a shelf full of used up journals. It is awesome to go back and read what I used to be worried about, what I was going through and how the Lord answered my pleas! It encourages me to push forward and reassures me of the growth in Him!
This was not always the case. I had never been a big reader until reading Redeeming Love, which I have read like 7 times! Then, after I graduated I subbed for a semester and I found myself with a lot of extra time--so I turned to reading! Since then I have been obsessed... I just wish I had more time to truly enjoy it like I would like to!
14. Bling Bling
Bling makes me smile! I wear it on my jewelry, toe nails and anywhere else I can get it! It just makes me happier!
Walk into my classroom and this one becomes very evident! The cool thing is because I have so much zebra stuff, now I get zebra things as gifts all the time!! So fun!
16. Leading Worship
Early I mentioned loving to sing. However, to take that even deeper, I love leading worship! I can be at church, at a conference or church camp. It doesn't matter what my surroundings are. All that matters is what I am doing-- which is guiding people to the foot of our Beloved's throne! It is just a sweet opportunity to be used as a tool to lead people into the Lord's presence!!
17. Face Masks
If you know me then you know about face masks. I am addicted to them! It just feels so nice and its just a guilt little pleasure of mine! If you ever want to do one let me know... that is if I haven't made you do one with me already!! ha
18. Dental Health
Brushing my teeth isn't just a good habit. It is kinda an obsession. I am constantly afraid that my breath stinks and so I brush my teeth often. I also really really REALLY like Listerine. Not the new non-alcoholic kind... bring on the burn baby!
There is a little thing called having an oral fixation and I have it. When I was younger I sucked my thumb for a long time. Now that void is met by gum chewing. I go through about three packs a week people. If you remember up on 18 I also freak out that my breath smells bad so that is a huge part. But its more than that--for instance, I can't work out without gum in my mouth, and when I don't have it I feel weird or lost. Oh and fruity or cinnamon gum is not for me... I am purely a Wintergreen or Mint gal!
I always have my camera and I love taking pictures. I have about three or four scrapbooks. I just think it captures your memories a little better and they are fun to look back on and remember what was going on!
