Temptation is staring me in my face! So today is the day I have decided to put all the junk aside and get in shape again. Im not sure what has happened but I do know that my body is not the same as it used to be. Instead of getting upset and down about my weight, I am going to do something about it. So today is the day I am going to get my gym membership. Two more hours and I will officially be a gym member. I have a treadmill but its only growing dust! :)
I even went to the store last night and bought healthy food and snacks. I packed a healthy lunch and even had oatmeal and a banana for breakfast. Im drinking water instead of coke and sweet tea (which no tea is the hardest part). Anyways I felt really good about this until around 11:00 this morning. Little did I remember, I purchased $30.00 worth of Otis Spunkmeyer cookies and brownies. I mean its not like everyday you can have Otis Spunkmeyer cookies.....actually I have not had any since 2002. hahah...sad I remember. These are my favorite. A lady at my work was selling these items for her daughters I gave in. I totally forgot about this order until today. So now I am stuck with an entire pan of double chocolate chip brownies and an entire tub of chocolate chip cookies. What will I do! This is only a test....Im being tested to see if I give in to these treats I have decided to give up...I can do this!!!! :)

So this picture was taken last year. My WONDERFUL boyfriend manages to always get great concert tickets. Usually we are somewhere between the 1 and 5th row of every concert we go to. Not all but most. How he does this Im not sure but he pulls through for me! :) This picture is of me and Joe Don from Rascall Flatts. We had great seats at this concert but on the way there one of Aarons friends called and said "Hey hurry and get here and I can get you backstage" So needless to say we skipped our dinner reservations and flew downtown so we could hangout backstage before the concert!!! This was when Kelly pickler was on tour with them. I must say with out a doubt The guys from Rascall Flatts were awesome. So friendly!!! We had a great time. Thanks to Chris and his friendship with their Manager, my night was great!

On another note Rascally Flatts will be coming to my city soon so Aaron needs to get on my tickets ;) I HAVE to see the guys again and Jessica Simpson!

Picture Overload

I have been blogging but I have not been uploading pictures. So tonight while watching the Oscar's, I have decided to catch up on pics. Enjoy!

There is a store in my town that has the neatest painted china but being the person I am (crafty), I decided I could paint my own pottery. With that being said...I visit Paint a Piece quite often....haha. Here are a few pieces I have painted. The pitcher is the newest one...I have flowers to place inside the pitcher but I have not put them in yet.

Heather with her piece that I painted for her at her bachelorette party.....hope you like it girl.
My first piece I painted a year ago. Since then I have painted coasters, a spoon rest, and several other plates. 

Here are a few pages from the scrapbook I made Aaron for Valentines day. 

Heather and Nick's "HIS & HER" Shower.

Have a great night and a wonderful Monday!!!

Wounded and Broken....Please Pray

I have a prayer request for all you out there....where are my prayer warriors? I find myself going and reading blogs all the time of people I have never met but these people are my brothers and sisters...I find myself praying and praying hard for the ones that ask and even the ones that I think just need prayer.

I have a dear friend that has been saved recently and I LOVE seeing and hearing the wonders that the Lord is doing in her life and heart. Recently my friend has been visiting the church I attend and has really found this to be a welcoming Church home. I LOVE Sundays and nothing warms my heart more then looking down the row and realizing my family and all my best friends...yes all my close girlfriends...are sitting with me praising and worshiping the Lord. Just this morning my dear friend brought an issue to my attention. I was discussing how I want to do more in our community. Help the elderly, abused and addicted. She agreed that she would love to help--so I'm excited to see where this leads us. BUT she also confided in me with a pain that is breaking her heart. Her brother whose name is ERIC! (she gave me permission to say his name). Eric is a very nice young man...cute, sweet and caring. The most important part of Eric is missing though. Eric is LOST. He is broken and wounded. Eric is 30 and has fought a life of addiction. He has had two overdoses, with one leaving him on his death bed. Eric survived both of these..........some ask WHY? I can tell you why.....God's work with Eric is not finished. What that job is, I do not know but I feel in my heart that it will be wonderful. Eric is not the same addict he was when he overdosed but he is still lost from the most important thing in life. GOD!!
Eric does not know his Lord and Savior. Highpoint (my Church) is a place for IMPERFECT PEOPLE and I know that this family would welcome Eric no matter what his struggles and imperfections may be. At this time Eric has no interest in Church or learing about the Lord and his Savior. So MY PRAYER REQUEST is that Eric would see the wonders of the Lord through his friends and family....that this may open his eyes. I would love for Eric to come to Church and just hear God's word.......see God's work......and feel the love of God's people at work all around him. I pray that I may touch Eric's life or give him word's of advice that will open his eyes. I pray that his heart and mind will open up so that he can learn and accept his Lord and Savior. My brothers and sisters....we have a lost, broken, and wounded brother in need of love and prayer.

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to read this post. This post means more to me than any of the other posts I have written....I welcome words of wisdom and encouragement. Most of all THANK YOU!!!!

With Love,

So Much for one post!

I have so much to say in one post but Im going to try and keep it short. 

Thursday night we had my best friends bachelorette party! Heather wanted to keep it low key and have a night with the girls. So we decided to have a "slumber party". I guess we never get too old for a good ol  slumber party. Of course we had to throw in a few we loaded up in the car for what Heather thought was a scavenger hunt. We headed straight to Paint a Piece where we all painted something for Heather and then we headed to the bowling alley for some more fun! 

Saturday was VALENTINES and a good one it was. The weather was beautiful so I enjoyed a day with the girls eating a shopping. Aaron told me we were going to dinner and it was a suprise. Im very proud of myself....I did not pester him to tell me...Im not good at being suprised. As Aaron would say "if I'm not in control...I can't stand it" not me! Aaron and I had made a promise not to buy each other a Valentine's gift. We purchased daily devotional books that we are planning on that was suppose to be our gifts. Well of course I had to do something extra so I made a scrapbook of us over the past four years. Well Aaron had to do something extra too...he bought me a new Dogeared  necklace. I love these Necklaces, if you are not familiar with this brand check it out....I LOVE IT!  
I have three different necklaces now and yes, I wear them all together. We then headed down town to Itta Bena....yum yum. This was our first time eating there and it won't be the last. I had a great time spending time just together. 

Sunday after Church we went to family and our friends..13 of us. I love Sundays. 

Lastly, My best friend and her fiance left today to get married. Heather and Nick are getting married in Jamaica this Saturday...just the two of them. Im sad we will not be there to witness this day but They wanted an intimate wedding with no one but the two of them. So that is what they will get. I love yall and cant wait to see yall

I hope everyone had as great of a weekend as I did. We are half way through this week...hope everyone has a great rest of the week!
