Update on Life

Um...instead of trying to make excuses for why I have been MIA for over 3 months, I'll just leave it at this: I have been insanely busy; God is good, & things have been going well =) The Lord has been teaching me SO much this semester, & I am really excited to see what He has in store these remaining 5 weeks of the semester.

A couple of weeks ago I was able to come home for spring break. It was a much needed break & a wonderful time with family & friends.

Sara spent Friday night at my house & we had a great talk about what the Lord is doing in our lives this year; it has been so amazing to see how God is working! We usually meet before class on Thursday mornings to talk through our devotions for the week, but it was super nice to have an extended time just to talk & pray. And Heather (in the middle) is our former roomie & dating a guy from my church, so she was in Chetek as well. We all got together for brunch & coffee on Saturday morning. Super fun time =) So thankful for both of these girls!

Later on Saturday, my mom & I went to my grandpa's 80th birthday party. It has been really great to get to spend time with my grandparents recently as in the past I was unable to see them very often. We had a great time, & in honor of St. Patrick's day we also got to enjoy some interesting green foods...Haha! 

Thursday, I got to go down to the Dells to see my sister & her family. Bri was already all worn out by that afternoon!

 That evening we went to Ginza of Tokyo, a Japanese grill & got to have dinner at the Hibachi grill. Basically, it's dinner & a show! The chef grills the food right at your table & entertains you while he's cooking. There's a lot of fire involved, & since I have a little bit of a pyro in me, I especially enjoyed that. Haha!
 The following day, my wonderful sister treated us to Starbucks & pedicures...oh my word; it was so much fun! Bri got in on it too. She asked for a pedicure, which the lady graciously did. Then, the little punk (very princess like) stuck out her hands & said "now can you do these nails?" Oh goodness....too cute! And a troublemaker =)
 And she's already got the puppy-dog eyes down...this is what she uses on Ryan.
 I am so thankful for the time I was able to spend at home; I love being able to catch up with my friends & family. God has blessed me so much with my sisters & my mom & the close friendship that we have. I couldn't have asked for a better break =)
