Friday Faves and a Blog Update

Happy Friday, everyone! Sadly, this is my first of three. But after all those days off, I can’t complain! BLOG As far as the blog update, I’ve been going pretty steady with posting M/W/F. I’m not posting for a huge crowd, by any means ;). But I figured I should say on here that I will be adapting my new posting schedule with school starting on Monday, anywhere from 1-2 posts a week. Maybe 3 if I’m feelin’ it ;)….

Workout Wednesday!

Workout Wednesday!

Happy hump day!! Today is my first day back at work after a string of days off. Should be interesting… I wanted to bring back a workout Wednesday post today. I’m finishing up Lauren Gleisberg’s summer plan this Friday, and want to at least have a week where I just do whatever I want! She put a schedule together to finish the month out and into September, so I may do that, but I haven’t decided! If your interested, her…

A Charlottesville Weekend and a Fourth Year…

A Charlottesville Weekend and a Fourth Year…

Hello and happy Monday! How was your weekend? I’m on one of those realllllly long weekends that makes people think nurses never work. But I couldn’t even tell you the last time I’ve had 6 days off straight without taking vacation. And it just means next week will be a tad rough ;). I got off last Wednesday and go back this Wednesday. I used my long weekend to go to Charlottesville, Virginia to move my sister into college for…

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…

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…
