    New Blog

    Because I like Tumblr so much better.


    I am going to start reading Ephesians today. Me and my boo are. It is nice to start a brand new book on a day like a Monday. I pray that I will be able to spend time in His word every single morning as I go through this book. Life is like really good and I kind of want things to slow down. This summer went by really fast. I just want to make the most of what I have left.

    2 years

    I had the best weekend in the world. Everything that happened was more than what I was expecting. On Friday Brendan and I went to Mohegan Sun for Matt’s birthday. We just hung out all night with everyone and it was so much fun. On Saturday morning we went to my cousin Sara’s wedding. Later on that day we went to worship band practice. I even got to go swimming!

    Sunday was the preview service for Catalyst Church, which is something that all of us have been working so hard on. Two of my friends from work came. I just love our church. It’s not the type of church that I am embarrassed of at all. It’s the type of church where I can even invite people I work with to come, and they aren’t going to think I am weird or lame or the stereotypical crazy Christian. After the service, all I heard were good things and people love what we are doing.

    After church, Brendan and I got ready for our 2 year anniversary! He got me the sweetest present ever. Plus, he got me 2 roses (for 2 years) and some chocolate truffles! I gave him a new bathing suit (LOL) and a giant gummy bear, among other things. Then we headed to New Haven where we went to the Peabody Museum. Afterwards we went to the Yale Art Gallery, which was free. Then we went to dinner at a place called Prime 16, which was fantastic. We ended the night by watching Inkheart (which I didn’t like really) and relaxing.

    All in all, it was the perfect day. I know that Brendan tried really hard to make it a really special day. I would have been happy just being able to spend the whole day with him, even if we didn’t go out for dinner or do any of the stuff we did. I just feel really great when I am with him. I can’t believe that it’s been 2 years. We can get through anything. Just hearing him say stuff like that made me really happy.



    Today for some reason I woke up really motivated. Today is pretty much my only day off this week. So far I cleaned my car out and vacuumed it. I love when my car is super clean. My next task is to clean up my room because my brother left this morning and it needs some attention. It’s really nice out and I want to do something outside today. But I think I will just catch up on the Secret Life and make some ChaCha money soon. And finish Harry Potter 7.

    Fourth of July weekend was the best! Britton came home on Friday night. Things got a little hectic at my house because Britton is going to be deployed to Afghanistan on August 14th. I had a mini meltdown, but I will continuously pray and put my faith in the Lord that somehow this won’t happen. And if it is God’s will, I pray my baby brother will be safe for the 8 months he is there. Anyways, on Saturday we went swimming at Tim’s. Then we went to New Haven for fireworks, which were the best I have ever seen. It was so perfect.

    Yesterday I spent the morning with my family and finally made it to the Catalyst Underground bonfire. I loved what Donny talked about. I think I haven’t really struggled with what my purpose is. I have been blessed that God has put on my heart what He wants me to do with my life. Even before I committed my life to Christ when I was 16, God was leading me to music and to the youth ministry. After all of these years I have said yes to God and He has directed me to where I am today. I’m 21 years old and I still haven’t done what I think He wants me to do just yet, but I know my time will come. It’s all about being patient and really making time to listen to what God is telling you.

    july already

    I can’t believe it is July already! This weekend is 4th of July festivities, which is my favorite holiday. I am looking forward to next week so much! Next Friday is Matt Rouleau’s birthday stuff, Saturday is my cousin’s wedding, Sunday is our anniversary! Then Tuesday at night is Harry Potter!

    I just got my grades for my 2 summer classes. I got a B+ (so freakin close) in info processing and B in my Capstone! So happy it’s done. I am officially 4 classes away from graduating. I randomly got a $13.50 refund for a magazine I have never paid for. That got me gas when I was on empty. Crazy how things work like that.

    I have been reading Mark and I always feel like Jesus is way more aggressive in this Gospel. I love it though. Even though it’s summer, I feel surprisingly focused and dedicated to spending alone time with God each day.  I think I just feel good all around and I had such a fun past couple of days. Angela’s grad party and going to see the Chariot was great.

    Yesterday, Brendan surprised me with an awesome game for my PSP called Me and My Katamari. I am probably going to play it now while I wait for stuff to do at my internship. This is me and Rascal Flatts by the way…

    oh praise Him

    I feel super good like all the time. I know it all has to do with my Heavenly Father. I definitely feel more complete in Him. I don’t really think it’s anything in particular. I just feel good and it doesn’t matter that things aren’t like I thought they would be because as long as I have Jesus, I feel great.
    I finally got a raise at my job. I feel like I am more appreciated. I finished John and now I’m reading Mark a long with other members of Catalyst Church. Love it. It’s so inspiring to read Jesus’ actual words every morning.
    Our 2 year anniversary is coming up soon and it’s so exciting. Brendan is the best boyfriend in the whole world. I know I may talk about him like that a lot but it’s so rare to find a real man of faith. And someone who treats you like a lady should be treated.
    Wow my last day of class is tomorrow! I know it’s actually gonna feel like summer once my class ends! Can’t wait for next weekend! Fourth of July weekend is my favorite because there are fireworks. Plus, my baby brother is coming home to visit!
