Friday Rambles

Friday Rambles

It’s Friday, and my work week was an insane Monday-Wednesday. And despite all my random drafts, I didn’t have it in me to post Wednesday. So today, you’re getting my random thoughts… 1. Comcast. I’m sure I’ll be the 5829582092849294893284759283758th complaint on the internet but WHY. Just why. I’ve been paying $70/month for like 3 channels and internet that doesn’t work. I went to be there for an appointment at my new place in the city for set up and…

November Project and the Weekend

November Project and the Weekend

Hello and happy Monday! This is one of those weeks where I feel like a semi-normal human being. I worked Friday, had your typical two day weekend off, and now work Monday-Wednsday. With the exception that most people don’t start their weekends on a Thursday. I’ll take it when it comes! The Weekend This weekend was a good mix of busy and relaxation. Probably more busy than anything but no complaints here 🙂 All good things. Friday I worked and…

Weeks after I work the weekend always feel so good.  I usually only work one or two days after that with a day or two off in between, and then I’m off the following weekend. So it’s super nice. And I can’t beat the beautiful weather I’ve had on my days off. Monday it actually rained which was…

Get to know me: Random facts

Get to know me: Random facts

  Sigh… I want to get back to workout Wednesdays at some point buuuuut I’m loving following the guide from Lauren Gleisberg so I just haven’t created any lately! I may have to pull out an old one soon 😉 I recently read one of these “Random Facts” posts and it was so fun to learn some of the different, random things behind the writer. We all have those random, maybe quirky things about us that really, help make us who we…

Short Term Missions: Part Two

Short Term Missions: Part Two

The Impact of Short Term Missions: (from the viewpoint of Amanda 😉 ) Disclaimer: I’m not sure I took a SINGLE one of these photos. Thanks to the awesome 2017 Mission team members. 🙂  Some often say, why travel THAT far and spend that much money for such a short period of time? Sometimes that little point in itself causes huge impact in the person receiving services on short term missions. “I can’t even believe a group of teenagers took a…

Short Term Missions: Part One

Short Term Missions: Part One

In this post, I really want to cover a basic overview of what short term mission trips are (based on my experience) and why I do them. On Monday I will be talking about the impact of short term missions.  And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:15 I first began going on short term mission trips in high school. For those…

July Lessons and August Goals

July Lessons and August Goals

I love reading these posts on other blogs. And they always inspire me to sit down and reflect and look at what I could be working on. I don’t live a Monday-Friday lifestyle. So Monday’s aren’t usually a fresh start and I don’t always wish for Friday’s. (Which, actually erks my very type A routine craving self-though I won’t admit to it when  I’m sitting by the pool/beach on a Monday 😉 ). And I say this with a grain…

Friday Faves: Blogger Edition!

Friday Faves: Blogger Edition!

Happy Friday, everyone! Today I’m going to list some of my favorite things (on this Fridayyyy) all under one category: My favorite bloggers! Some of these people I list were a huge inspiration to the start of my blog! I honestly feel like a huge goof every time I click post. I am proud of my posts and that I’m doing something different, but it’s hard not to think “will people even care about reading this?”. Then I’m reminded how much…

Three non fitness health habits that have helped me, and one I want to work on.

Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday! Today I’m getting any last minute things together to be completely packed, car loaded for the mission trip I’m leaving for Saturday! I work all day the next two days so today’s the day!  Today instead of workout Wednesday I wanted to talk about 3 non-fitness thins that have contributed to my health and wellbeing! I think often we get so tied up in the eat your greens/run/lift weights part that we forget the other parts of…

A Week at the Beach

A Week at the Beach

Happy Monday, everyone!! This past week I was on vacation in Ocean View, DE (or Bethany Beach as some may know more). We stayed at a close friends house that is has grown on me so  much. I’ve gone to this house a few times since I was 13 years old and my friend Lauren, who’s family owns it, is designing the new build, as a graduate Architect student. The house has gone through significant flooding as you can imagine,…
