Happiness On A Plate

Last night we went out to dinner with a sweet couple from our church. We had such a good time! Afterwards we went and relaxed at this outdoor shopping center in the area where we live called La Centera. I love this place! You can get dinner, desert or coffee and then go shopping, very convenient, right? It is one of my favorite places to go that is close to where we live.

For dinner we went to Chili's, which is never a let down! I will leave you with a picture of what we had for dessert! The Molten Chocolate Cake-sooo good! I should have taken a picture of what it looked like after, but I am pretty sure you would know what that would look like!

Being Good Isn't Good Enough

Do you remember that lovable little family show that used to come on television called "Full House?" I can pretty much guess that most of you have! I can remember loving it as a little girl and having to watch it! Well, I am not sure how I stumbled across this earlier, but I did!

Candace Cameron Bure who used to play DJ on Full House, is now a lot like her brother Kirk Cameron and leading a Christ centered life! How cool is this! It is very rare that we hear about celebrities giving their lives to Christ, I just love it!

If you go to her website, which is, she has a great clip of her testimony. She brings up some great points about Salvation and how "Being good isn't good enough." We are so easy to say that because we are "good" people and we do what we think is right then we are given the keys to heaven and we are cool with God. This is not the case despite, how good it seems. God will one day judge us on His standards and His law according to the Ten Commandments. Not what we think is good and just compared to the world's standards. Wow! It definitely makes me want to evaluate the way I live my own life. Just because I am a nice person, and do nice things for people (we should do these things) doesn't mean that I will be living for eternity with God. Yowza!

The Good news: We have a great Instructional book (the Bible) and the Holy Spirit to help guide our every step! More importantly we have Jesus, the one who sacrificed His life so that we could live for Eternity with the father.

Marvelous Mondays

So, my husband Joey refers to Mondays as Marvelous! I always am like, "yeah, it's Monday!" I guess he is a little more chipper than I am, at least when it comes to Mondays! The weekend went great! The auction was more entertaining than anything! I don't know if anyone has ever gone to one, but wow! I couldn't even understand the auctioneer until we were about to leave. The had some really great pieces and every time I thought about bidding I chickened out! I would hear "twenty, twenty-five" then before I could raise my little number that I was using as a fan every five minutes, he would already be saying "give me fifty, do I hear fifty, fifty, fifty!" Ha ha, I just knew the moment I waved my hand, I would be agreeing to buying something for two hundred dollars!

My husband and I love our home church and are pretty involved. I help sing on the worship team along with my husband being one of the musicians. I also help lead children's worship and this Sunday was my turn! It went great! I love seeing kids getting pumped and excited all while worshiping God! I love seeing kids receiving the chance to be introduced to Jesus at such a young age. I grew up in a little Baptist church, but there were like two kids my age, so needless to say, there weren't camps and really successful Sunday schools or anything. Still, I am so thankful for my mom for taking me to church every Sunday, even if my sister and I would end up having laughing fests the entire time!

So far today I have been somewhat productive! I took Joey to an eye appointment. Now I am about to go meet a friend for lunch, then come home and catch up on some laundry! I need to enjoy the free time while I can! School starts next week so work will begin again! Ahh, the world of Substituting! Have a Marvelous Monday!

First of the First

This is my first of many blogs to come! Hopefully I will not ramble too much on all of them! Currently I am totally pshyched, because tonight I am going to my first antique auction! I have never been before and hear (for those of us antique lovers) that it is totally a lot of fun! This particular one that I am going to gives you FREE non-alcoholic dacquiries! I will try to ignore how many calories I will be drinking. I have been trying extremely hard to watch lately what and how much I have been eating. We just came back from vacation and when I came home and got on the scales...let's just say Ahhh. I mean come on, when you are on vacation, who wants to eat salads at every restaurant! Not me!

So, needless to say I am back at it! Maybe I should just sip someone elses tonight! Ha! I will have to let you know how it goes and if I come home with anything! Hope everyone has a great day!
