Happy Memorial Day! I think today is one of my favorite holidays. The military and troops deserve to be remembered every day, but today is to celebrate them especially. It seems as though communities come together to thank these brave men and woman and to enjoy our freedom all across America. That is what I have been thinking about today.
Took these last night, but forgot to post them... like I usually do. Andrew made the cup of coins for me to take a picture of and I think it turned out pretty neat. Didn't have a chance to do anything to them.
Great day. We basically just lounged around watching X-men movies (preparing for the next one to come out!), but it was nice to relax since it has been busy for more than the past week. I made pasta salad again and we made a carrot cake. First time I have made one and I made it with a box, but I think it turned out really well. It was moist and the cream cheese frosting is scrumptious and plentiful.
I think I am finally going to start work on our wedding scrapbook. We'll see how this goes.
Today was Sarah day because we hadn't hung out with each other since 2010! So, we planned this day about 2 months ago and it was wonderful! We caught up, had burritos, and laughed, laughed, laughed. This is my weeks ahead -- full of Sarah!!! <3
I tried to upload this yesterday, but Blogger was down! Here it is now:
I have started knitting a scarf for a stuffed animal anteater. Although the recipient can't judge much, I still want it to turn out ok. We'll see how it goes.
This was my day. I stared at the computer screen and made charts and graphs all day. It was very helpful, but tiring. My back is sore, however I have learned a ton! If you ever need a chart made, I am your lady. :) This chart was really cool. The software we use had shapes and can recognize states. You can even make your own shapes if that would be helpful. I'm actually excited to learn about what exactly I can do and how I can use all this information!
Emotions were running high today. I did walked 3 miles with Team Eddison Alleen for the March of Dimes this morning/afternoon. It was quite a nice day for a walk, but when we got back to the Hatchshell it started hailing and raining. It was a great experience as always and the cause means so much to me.
The T-shirts are team wore. My best friend designs them each year and each year they turn out so fantastic. We've been walking each year for 5 years!!
I thought this picture was adorable and came out really, really well.
After the March for Babies, Andrew and I went home, relaxed a bit, then went to a benefit for the American Cancer society in honor of his best friend/coworker's mom. She died of breast cancer last year, so they were raising money for Relay for Life. I'm quite sure they made a lot of money for an equally great charity.
Lots and lots and lots of love to our family and friends today and every day. We wouldn't be where we are without their support and I have a feeling they wouldn't be where they are either. <3
I found this as I was walking out of work. I had seen it multiple times, yet it really stuck me today. Be careful. This weekend is going to be full of emotion. I am going to try and capture it in photos. I hope I can succeed.
I know, I know. This should have been yesterday seeing as it was Star Wars Day (May the Fourth be with you), but I forgot, plus I had such awesome pictures yesterday. Perhaps tomorrow I shall be all Cinco de Mayo related pictures. Who knows.
This is the second week we've been going to what is called the Alpha course and it is an introduction to the Christian faith and already I have begun to love it. It asks many questions that I have asked myself, either to Andrew or just to myself because I was scared/nervous/etc. The Pastor that runs it is hilarious and so sweet and caring and the people at our table (around 10 people) are so different from me, yet we all have similar feelings and thoughts and questions. Anyway, I highly recommend it if you feel dumb about religion or even if you just have questions of a spiritual nature.
If you couldn't guess, this post was inspired by Andrew. He got the lego set from Santa and just built it a week ago. He has been begging me to take a picture of it and I decided tonight was a good night. After a long, hard, frustrating day, tonight was a good, thoughtful night.
These pictures were taken on my phone, but I think they came out awesome!! Especially the bottom picture.
I got to interview a person for a position in my group. It was the first time I have ever interviewed someone and there were some awkward silences, but overall, it went well. I am also interviewing a person on Friday. Wahoo!
