Vacation #AtoZChallenge

Sadly I didn’t go to the beach for my vacation. It was more of a working vacation. Have I mentioned that we had a small fire? It wasn’t big but did damage to the ceiling in my parents room. Anyway, the major repairs were finished and our contractor was starting the painting when he had a family emergency. So we decided to take the burden off of him (he is a friend from church) and do the painting ourselves. Monday our neighbors and good friends painted the room and I helped put things back together. 
 
Tuesday was the day to paint my room. It had been an ugly gold/brown color.
 
The doors are now a silver gray
 
The big wall is navy blue
When we started the blue wall i thought it would end up brighter than I’d wanted but once it dried it was dark blue like I wanted.
The rest of the walls are a pale gray.
The rest of the week was pretty mundane, Until Saturday.
8 friends and I trecked down to Phoenix for a concert. Bethel Music.
First we did some shopping. Yes I ended up in Barnes and Noble…..I can’t help it lol
I’d never been to Tempe Marketplace. It was fun.
They made fun of me because I’d never been to Chick-Fil-A
I didn’t see what the hype is all about but that’s just me.
So we had to commemorate the moment.
I’m still not sure how I felt about this concert. I didn’t really enjoy it. It was just too much…….noise.
Chris Tomlin is about as wild as I get. This was over the top. Plus, something just felt off.  Sensory overload I guess.
Sunday we went to College View Baptist Church for our service, My friend’s extended family goes there and her brother in law is that pastor. It was a great service.
The girl squad
All in all it was a fun weekend with the girls 🙂

Palm Sunday

palm-Sunday-2019-quotes (1)

As a kid I was raised Lutheran. One of the things I miss most about no longer going to a Lutheran church is the traditions and celebrations of the church holidays. I remember  Palm Sunday when I was a kid all of us kids got to go to “big church” back then kids went to their own service, separate from the main service, Anyway, I remember we carried in palm branches and lay them down in front of the alter, leading the Pastor into the church. Today, in the church I go to now, I doubt it will be mentioned. But then again, having been raised Lutheran, I wish we did more to celebrate the holy days of Passion Week….Which starts today btw.

This video is adorable.

So, what ever you do, or don’t, celebrate…..Have a wonderful Sunday

#AtoZChallenge

I’m a few days behind on my a-z posts. I had a hard time coming up with an H post. I could have skipped it and come back to it later but I’m way to OCD (thanks mom) (don’t worry she doesn’t read my blog) So as I was working on some things for another blog I put my earbuds in and turned on the iPod and on comes Chris Tomlin! Hello! I have my H!

How Great is Our God…I mean seriously HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD! Chris is one of my absolute favorites. I’ve seen him live 3 times!

Enjoy!

How great is our God

Oopsie…

Typos EVERYWHERE in my last post! We all speak typonese right? Eh well, that’s what happens when you have Boston blaring in your ears and you’re typing to the beat. My fingers get ahead of my brain.  Anyhoo….As Oliver would say in Call Me By Your Name…..LATER!
