So tonight I had some friends over for a game night and let me just tell you... we only played one game and it lasted for FOUR hours.
Mark, Jared, Kelly and I all sat down at 8:45pm to start a simple game of Monopoly.
At 11pm, Mark was beat out so he went home.
At 11:45, Jared was beat out and he went to sleep on "our" (I love you Andrew) comfy couch.
At 11:50, Kelly and I decided to fight to the death.
At approximately 12:45am, Kelly Pence Blumenberg officially spanked me in one game of Monopoly.
I am a loser, yall. It's official. The End.

Amish Monday

Last night we had Amish Monday!!! Yeah! I really missed my friends. We were celebrating Livi and Jared's BDay and you can see in the picture to the left... I made them a beautiful cake. The flower to the left kinda melted and then looked like a pink blob... but it was a good tasting pink blob. All 15 of us scarfed it down very quickly... Good ole' Betty Crocker. It was good to see some smiling faces that love me because this past week has been super hard for me. Not stressful, just... emotionally tiring. You know, when you bounce from place to place so often and are jerked away over and over again from the people that you love to follow God's will it is very hard then to turn around and just be ok and have faith. The nasty enemy has really kicked me while I was down this week. He always seems to know just when my heart is hurting and that one more kick would just make it crumble and then he... kicks. Sometimes I have to really step back and evaluate where there is spiritual attack in my life. The body of Christ is so very important! Alot of college students do not feel that Church is important or needed in their lives. I beg to DIFFER! It is not just having a building to go and sit, check off your box, and then head to Applebees with some friends leaving the word you heard right in the pew that you sat in when you left... it is about relationship, fellowship, sharing your lives with other believers, disciplining the young in faith, encouraging one another!!! That is what The Soul Choir and all my friends at Amish Monday did for me this week. They lifted me up and they gave my strength... I needed them because this week to love me and encourage me. I need to depend on people. More importantly I need to really trust God and then I really need to have friends that I can go to and trust that they will love me despite my sin and circumstances. Everyone needs these kind of friends and everyone needs to be this kind of friend.

Nashville Bound!

After we left San Antonio, my family, Andrew and I all headed back to Belton. Sunday morning we woke up, picked up a uhaul, and loaded all of our wedding presents. We got the biggest uhaul trailor and filled it 3/4ths of the way full! We have a lot of stuff! Monday morning we woke up at 3:30 in the morning and were out the door by 4:45. About 14 hrs later, we arrived at my new apartment. I am living on the outskirts of Nashville and I love it! Here are some before and after pictures of my new apartment.

Airman Webb

August the 8Th, my whole family watched as Travis marched with his flight at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio as he graduated from boot camp! We are so proud of him and what he has accomplished! We stayed in San Antonio with him for three days while he showed us around and explained how he has become OCD. Mom is so happy! Travis- we love you and wish you the best in the future. God will guide your footsteps if you allow him to! Follow him Trav!

Home again, Home again...

It is now that time to go back to school... but this time I didn't only have to say goodbye to family... I had to say goodbye to my wonderful Fiance. We are getting married in 141 days and we will be apart for 111 of them! Hopefully I will be able to see him more than once this semester. He was such a trooper... he helped me pack my stuff and got me completely ready to leave Corpus and head to Belton before I headed to Nashvegas.

Greg and Carrie Williams

I haven't posted in a while because I have been busy busy busy! The last two weeks have been so crazy... alot has gone on... so let me start with the weekend of August the 2nd. This weekend I went to Boerne, TX where I sang "The Prayer" at Greg and Carrie Williams wedding. Two years ago I was Co-Counselors with Carrie at Carolina Creek Christian Camp for the summer. We always talked about who would get married first and we wondered what our future husbands would be like. Within two years we both found Mr. Right and now she beat me to the punch! The wedding was beautiful... Just like Carrie! I am so happy for you both!
