Why is today feeling more and more like a FRiday? And why do I need it to be more than ever. Yikes. Today is one of those days where crawling in a hole and hiding away sounds like a terrific idea.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (The Message)

3-6The world is unprincipled. It's dog-eat-dog out there! The world doesn't fight fair. But we don't live or fight our battles that way—never have and never will. The tools of our trade aren't for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture. We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity.

in and outs of the day to day grind

As the end of May is drawing to a close, I am still in the process of keeping my head on straight and completing the ins and outs of each day.  There have been struggles and celebrations, trials and victories, and always another mountain to climb or get out of the way.  But God is still my HELPer and His GRACE is sufficent.  I also know that in my weakness He is STRONG. So here is a brief rundown of updates in the life of me
:1: the school year is reaching it's closure weeks and all the teachers are counting down. I myself haven't officially started but I do know that I will be embracing June 12th which is the last student day. Not to mention the only countdown I've been doing lately is WEDDING! Teachers have to stay until the 17th and at my school we will be busy moving into our new building/school. BUSY BUSY weeks ahead
:2: Wedding planning continues to move along.  Wedding showers will start in June and I am looking forward to that, praying that we have exciting turnouts.  We still have some things to pay off but the invitations are PAID FOR and on their way. I am excited for that and will be starting to assemble and address envelopes in June.  Dad, mom, and I narrowed our choices down for the bridal portrait shots that will be blown up for the reception.  It was def really hard to do but we finally moved forward. 
:3: May 30th is the auction (which is also mother's birthday). The previous Friday and that Saturday are going to be completely CRAZY at my house.  David and I have been praying though regarding the auction and all associated with it.
:4: Earlier this week I had some problems with ants. EW. I know that the house had some trouble with ants in the past but I wasn't prepared for what I walked into earlier this week in the kitchen.  With much helpful tips and remedies, I sat out some bowls of vinegar in the kitchen and washed the cracks and places with the vinegar/water solution.  The first day there were some ants that had crawled in the bowl and died.  Since then I haven't had near as many problems.  I am also going to try the chalk remedy as well.
:5: Our next bible study session will be started June 2nd and I am super excited.  I have to drop by Lifeway soon and check out their Beth Moore series and pray and see what direction God wants us to head.
this shall do for now. It sure beats the short SMS posts I've been lazily doing.

Wedding Planning Updates

Invitations have been paid for and sent to the printer. The first large item that is paid off. (everything else had deposits on it and wants the remaining balance 30 days before the wedding). We are hoping to pay small doses on the cake, flowers, photography, etc so we won’t be forking large funds all at once.

Bridal Portraits
were made last Saturday and despite the many obstacles: auctioneer at the house, RAIN, nerves..we got in some fabulous shots. I am having a hard time narrowing them down to the shot(s) to have framed and shown at the reception.

Gift Registry: still a work in progress. We have for the most part built a large selection of things we need/want from Bed, Bath, and Beyond as well as Target. we are also going to register at Lowe’s for home improvement stuff.

Showers: Wedding showers will be starting in JUNE! June 4th is the one at my school and then June 6th is our couples shower. I will be having my girly shower when it gets a little closer to the wedding.

we still have so many things to piece together but God is right along side of us helping and that is what’s up!
