Frrrrriiidayyyy

Just spreading that word outttt as much as I can :) Welcome Friendly Friday Friends. Happy to have you here.

This weekend is busy, busy bee. Anyone else?

UPDATE: Before the happy news.... I have to share some GREAT news. God saved me yesterday. Big time!

Yesterday, driving home from work... I got hit. A gentleman was [illegally] reversing as I was turning onto a frontage road. It sure was the CHERRY on the top of a rough day. Literally. By the grace of God, look how close he was to hitting MY drivers side door. Glass went everywhere but didn't hit me. It was a TOTAL God thing.

I got out of the car, balling my eyes out and the poor guy... he just reached out to give me a hug. He was kind and knew it was his fault. Yikes! I called Joshy immediately and a cop came. We are getting things worked out today... Just wanted to share this to show you that GOD IS A GOD WHO PROTECTS! Amen!!

Here's our weekend plans....

Tonight: Welcome Home Party for two dear friends who were studying abroad in Venezuela. Zach & Chana Johnston

Kabobs are on the menu! We love grilling in the summer time! I will be sure to take pictures and share the l-o-v-e!

Saturday: “Something Blue” Bridal Shower for 3 lovely bride-to-be’s. These 3 women were a part of The Honor Academy (internship ministry program I was involved with for 1 year). It just made sense to host a shower for ALL 3… and I CAN’T WAIT. [Hi HA North girls, SO looking forward to having you to our home!]

Here are the three lovely bride-to-be’s:

The three beautiful brides are getting married THIS summer! I couldn’t be happier for them :) Really, truly.

Not to mention… There will be a lot of the other girls from The HA coming too… Don’t you worry… Pictures to come!!! It is going to be a HUGE reunion. Fellowship & Reuniting. Oh, anticipation!

Sunday: Service Sunday at church!! We are going to head into Minneapolis and bring lunches to the homeless. It is going to be quite amazing. Representing with “Jesus-style” love!!

In the afternoon… I am taking family pictures for a very fun family! They are my sister-in-law’s boyfriends family (how’s that for a tongue-twister). Looking forward to it and pictures to come…

ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND! What are you up to??

Wow! Fun busy weekend! I will be doing not much. I'm hoping I can get cleaning my room (since I'm now graduated & need to get rid of old school stuff & organzie for wedding stuff) most of the weekend!
