Here's a quick update. I found a ton of random pictures on my camera and forgot I hadn't posted any of them :P
Meet "The Burrow"
That grassy patch is "The Happy Medium"
Our wonderful neighbors are Tristan, Will, and Kev-kev.
My beautiful roommates are Alicia and Teea.
Next year is going to be a hoot and a holler.
We spent an entire night brainstorming how to utilize The Happy Medium.
Blow up bouncy slide?
The fire pit is the only realistic one but hey, we can dream.
Family dinners and worship jam nights.
God has blessed our stressful housing situation more than I could have possibly imagined.
Thank you thank you thank you Lord!
I just realized I never talked about Jimmy Needham's concert.
I was not disappointed. His honesty reminded me of Shawn McDonald.
He talked about what the songs meant to him and he made it very clear to us his struggles and doubts that went through his head that inspired the songs. He was an incredible person and I'm so glad I was able to see him. Watch this vid. I saved the best for last :)
What a lucky girl I am to have such wonderful friends.
Girls movie night consisted of one of my ultimate favorites, Cinderella Story [Hilary Duff classic].
Bagel Shop with Carly on Saturday.
We decided that would be the worst place to go on a date.
Food chunks stuck to our teeth. Dropping things off the stools.
Not extremely attractive. Lots of laughs though :)
Picnic with Miss Katie Van Cleave today.
We decided to go on an adventure and we were not disappointed.
We found a hill. Climbed it. Plopped down a blanket, and watched the shadows of clouds move across the pretty palouse. Then we took pictures. Lots of pictures.
I taught Kate-face how to use my camera.
She didn't even know where to look when she took the picture.
It was hilarious :P
My sunglasses took a dive into the river while we were on the bridge, but not to worry everyone.
I have an identical pair. Original from the 80s. I'll keep this pair super safe.
Oh and Katie found out this weekend that she can go to Creation with me this summer. It's going to be grand :D
We're gonna turn the 'ol Camaro into a pack animal and journey to Enumclaw to make many memories :) Possibly visit some West side friends afterwards. If they let us. We're probably going to smell. Showers don't always get on the to do list at Creation ;)
Got to see a lot of my girlies this weekend. So needed. I love you guys!
I nabbed the last New York Times at the CUB today. Phew. Almost missed a day. What a terrible thought. ... Village last night was really moving. It's amazing when you think of God's purpose for each of us, and how we can make a significant difference in the lives of people at our school and in Pullman. It's awesome just sitting with people who all have the same goal in life. Praying over the city. So cool. ... Tristan: "That'd be sweet to evaporate like in Harry Potter." Me: "You mean apparate?"
Rejoice always,pray continually,give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
The most perfect day outside today. I went over to Thompson Flats after my classes, sat on my blanket, soaked in the sunshine, and practiced guitar. I could have stayed there for hours. It was absolutely glorious.
If anyone has caused grief, he has not so much grieved me as he has grieved all of you to some extent—not to put it too severely.6The punishment inflicted on him by the majority is sufficient.7Now instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow.8I urge you, therefore, to reaffirm your love for him.9Another reason I wrote you was to see if you would stand the test and be obedient in everything.
