Blessings and Prayers

So many blessings lately!

-I finally received some concrete explanations about test results from my doctor, and feel much better about the whole situation.

-Kaitlin's mom Bev introduced me to a great way to get in lots of fruits and veggies on the go: In a blender, mix strawberries, banannas, baby spinach, and a little bit of ice water. You'll end up with a delicious neon-green smoothie that's packed with good nutrients, and you really can't taste the spinach at all.

-The wonderful Starbuck's lady made me my favorite Chocolate Banana High-Protein Smoothie that isn't on the menu anymore! Love her!

-One week from tomorrow is our two year wedding anniversary. We've actually been together for more like 5 years. I took the day off work, and plan to spend the day floating in my parent's new pool.

-The concert on Saturday was wonderful! The band had so much support from the other vendors at the farmer's market, as well as the patrons. I hope this becomes an annual event.

-Thank goodness for Old Navy! I snagged a pair of yoga pants, two tanks, and a pair of shorts for a total of $30 online. And they're talls! Now I just have to wait the 5-9 days for them to get here!

Prayer requests:

-Please pray that Justin isn't sent up to Washington for work next week. He would be missing our anniversary, his birthday, and a huge concert for the band. Additionally, he'd be working nights, so we wouldn't even get to TALK while he's gone.

-Please pray for Kait and her hubby J--although I'm thrilled to see Kait again, I'm not thrilled about the circumstances, which are that her hubby has deployed again...for the third time this year!

-Also please pray for Ryan and Renee. They're expecting that Ryan will soon either be laid off, or may have to work out of town for an extended period of time, neither of which are obviously ideal.

-Please pray for Ali and Mike, a couple from our Bible Study that are currently in Uganda, and will be going to Rwanda on Friday. They're over there meeting with a number of different pastors, and are researching starting an organization that gives short-term loans to individuals that would like to start a business, sort of like Kiva, but faith-based.


  1. Glad to hear you have so much to be thankful for and I'll be praying for you!

  2. I love Old Navy yoga pants, so comfy!

  3. So many good things! I pray that Justin can float with you in the pool on your anniversary!
    And I LOVE old navy online. Way better selection than in store, and the stores are always a mess anyway.

  4. Can I come float in the pool, too? I'll be trapped outdoors camping in 100ish degree Pennsylvania heat next week.

    And Old Navy online is the devil. :) Well, any store online is...I shop online WAY too much. :x

  5. Just add some PB to that Starbuck's concoction and I am in heaven.
